mian, 15 Sep 2015HTC is not ugly !! You didn't read my comment properly. I said it looks like a HTC ripoff without the speakers. Not that HTC has poor design.

It's a known fact that the Z3+ got a poor reception by the critics. Which fool is going to by this phone when Sony announced the Z5? It's either Z3 or Z5. What's the difference between Z3 and Z3+? Nothing remarkable. So people, skip this junk and get the Z5.
Phone sounds nice on paper, but after 2 weeks of use I had a sudden death failure and no tricks in forums or on Sony website can revive the phone. After searching all possible means it seams to be an issue on all Sony mobile devices and the worst of it is Sony is pathetically slow and unresponsive to after care and service. Do yourself a favor and invest in a different brand because you will be disappointed!
Many ppl are making faulty news ..z3plus is a great mobile....but looks like z3 thats d problem.....even s6 get toooo heat ..g4 gets bad heat

Sony Xperia Z3+ is above all other smartphones, even Samsung sacrificed by not features Snapdragon to its latest samrtphone S6 edge to avoid heating issues, but still get overheating in a simple usage oh damn I have bought S6 coz I head that it is not get heat since it has Exynos CPU but the fact is not

Snapdragon 810, if it didn't overheat, would've scored 65k. All reviewers tell the Z3+ heats up more than Z3. I don't know if they released a upgrade again to fix overheating. What they did is probably down clock the chip even more. Z3+ was a failure in Sony's history. It didn't even release in many places.
I love my z3plus ....usually i dont use fingerprint time waste ...some times it won't work..... now a days all devices or tooo hot.....g4 s6 m9 they are too hot very bad devices ....battery like a 90ml of water ...comparing tu them my z3plus is hero ...... z5 may be better but same features like z3plus..except fingerprint .....all are happy....today i planed to buy so i say this is better ..you will plan for next month that will suits you....no compramise....z3plus great monster...same featres in z5

I play for hours when I'm bored. It's not getting that hot. Maybe they fixed it with an update and you don't know about it? I have LG G3 too, and that phone get very heat up when playing games. So I don't see what people think is so bad. It's not going on fire lol
People with this phone have to underclock it to reduce the heating issue.

Also the Z5 has a better design and fingerprint reader and many more improvements. The Z3+ might be better than Z3, but it got a bad reception from critics unlike Z3. If you see the Z3+ has got a bad reputation, and no other Xperia Z series phone ever got such a bad reputation. How I look at the Z series phones: Z, Z1, Z2, Z3, Z5. Just forget about the Z3+. Pretending it never happened.
i have samsung galaxy s5 which never heats up, whether playing games or using internet, sony phones have this problem for a long time, its really bad for company like sony, so thats the reason i dont like sony phones
petercs, 26 Aug 2015I agree, but what can I do with my z3+? Cooking?))) I entirely agree with you. I just bought the Z3+ and I think it's simply amazing that Sony could release a product with such deficiencies. I was just fiddling with the camera to try some features and the device heated so much that the camera turned off. A "premium product" with a useless camera? As you say, $750 burned!
People saying z3plus is a failure. What else can you ask for a phone. It's better then z3, heat issue? Its standard in today's smartphones. Cuz what to you think happens when you put high end chips in to phones with no fans to cool it down. Ofc it's getting hot but I never experienced ones that it force closed any games or apps I played so far. It's a good phone. Z5 even better,I guess. Who really cares so freaking much about small changes in phones nowadays. You pay lots of money for a high end device. It's your best friend for 2 years even more sometimes. Soon we will have monster computers in our pockets? Anyways I'm tired and you should just buy what's best for you,not what others think. All have their own opinion. With that said. I love my z3plus and will probably have it for 3-4 years. If I don't brake it.
