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.
heat, 06 Sep 2015Every mobile have heating issues.......from many years many things happened for heating issues... moreIt isn't nonsense. Xperia Z5 series have dual heat pipes and thermal paste to control the heat of the CPU. The phone also uses display memory cache to reduce load on CPU. Also the Z5 has MUCH better camera and design and features. Z3+ is a epic fail.
sonyyyyyyyyyy, 07 Sep 2015get the z3+ its almost half the price yet only doesnt have fingerprint scanner and as nice of ... moreNo, isn't half the price. And Z3+ was a epic failure in Sony's history. Buying a Z3+ now, even when Z5 released, is a dumb idea.
dude, 05 Sep 2015Hi, i'm plan ing to replace my phone with either sony z3+ or z5. Does your z3+ has any issues ... moreget the z3+ its almost half the price yet only doesnt have fingerprint scanner and as nice of a camera
Every mobile have heating issues.......from many years many things happened for heating issues...everytime sony makes different.. So z3plus is much better than z3...coming to z3 many mobiles get over heat and some doesnt get... That means is it have double pipe or thermal paste...nonsense...better wait for z5 so z3plus price will decrease we can buy for lower price with same configuration
dude, 05 Sep 2015Hi, i'm plan ing to replace my phone with either sony z3+ or z5. Does your z3+ has any issues ... moreGo for Z5. Less overheating due to dual copper heat pipes, much better cameras, better performance, stronger chassis, better grip, fingerprint reader, better battery, and many more. Z3+ wasn't a good flagship at all, marred with overheating issues, subpar camera, same design as Z3.

It didn't even release in many places. Sell your Z3+ and buy the Z5/Z5 Premium when they release. They fixed the overheating issue by putting dual heat pipes and thermal paste over the SoC. And much improved camera, design, performance, display, features and what not.
Anonymous, 04 Sep 2015LOL. And that Huawei? Looks like a 2013 HTC ripoff. Z5 Premium is one of the best looking pho... moreYa, it looks very good. I thought it has exactly the same look with z3 and the +. The frame looks more stylish than z3's. I wish the screen to body ratio is above 74%.
I had the Xperia Z3 and now I have the Xperia Z3+. I wouldn't had bought this phone if it wasn't to give the Z3 to my father, because I was happy with the Z3.
However, I really think the Z3+ is better. It has a better design, it's lighter and faster. The camera is good, but actually it's one of the things that I feel it could be better, although it suffers from the same problems as the Z3 (and if anything the Z3+ one is a little better). The main problems for me is being a little slow to process when taking a shot (maybe because it does a lot of post-processing) and also some issues with backlight in some pictures. I find it difficult to balance the exposure when there's light from one particular source (like the sun, or a big screen). It seems that either the source is reproduced correctly or the rest, not both (in other words, it seems the HDR mode is not working as expected).
The only thing I think it was better in the Z3 was the battery. It lasted way more. This is not big issue for me, because I like to have 100% in the morning, so I'm used to charged it every night no matter what. But with the Z3 I could used it comfortably all day and never reached 0%. With the Z3 plus I have to be a little more careful. It's still a good battery tho.
Bottom line, I would not trade my Z3+ for the Z3 again, although I admit the Z3 is still a great phone, and there's little reason to upgrade to the Z3+.
I haven't felt the overheating issue that much actually. And has far as I know, the Z3 also had this problem. I honestly don't think there's a big difference. Maybe it reaches higher temperatures. But in the Z3 I also had many camera crashes because of this. It's not a new thing.
AnonD-434597, 04 Sep 2015It has 2014 flagship look. LOL. And that Huawei? Looks like a 2013 HTC ripoff. Z5 Premium is one of the best looking phone around, and everyone agrees. The Z5 series also got more attention than that cheap Huawei. So look at the pictures http://www.xperiablog.net/2015/09/02/sony-xperia-z5-premium/.

Z5 Premium is much better, and it looks amazing and very exotic. Perhaps you haven't seen the phone? BTW the huawei phone you mention looks like a an HTC One phone without the stereo speakers, and it looks kinda ugly. Don't compare the Z5 Premium to cheap low grade phones like mate S.
AnonD-434597, 03 Sep 2015I think the new mate s is better choice. Much more beautiful, 2,5D glass is a mark for fla... moreNo way dude. Z5 Premium beats the crap out of any Huawei. Best camera, best display..
This device is a hoax, it is nothing Sony says it is ... the battery life is shitty, even after the recent software update the phone function keeps hanging. Then there is the heating who said I wanted a heater?
AnonD-435431, 01 Sep 2015Thanks Avan for ur suggestion.......
I think the new mate s is better choice.
Much more beautiful, 2,5D glass is a mark for flagship. And diamod cut frame is georgeous.
More advanced fingerprint scanner, double as trackpad and ofcourse better placement.
Force touch display.
