REGRETFUL - Bought this phone three days ago and it's a failure when it comes to battery. It will not be able to reach 2 days of life if you use it like a normal android user does. Performance and speed are good but it will not compare to the Xperia Z Ultra I used to have. If you like taking selfies and photos, it would be good. If you use your phone casually (which wouldn't make sense considering you bought an android) then it would be okay. You need to turn the screen at around 20% to make your phone last half a day otherwise you are in for a total battery drain by midday. I am definitely very frustrated that it cannot meet the 2 day battery life promised.
subbu, 20 Jan 2016i have planned to buy this Phone.. Really it has heating issue and sudden loss of battery.?? ... moreIt heats up but it's not a problem... like my previous Z3 compact.
I washed it and also no problems at all.
And the battery last more than a day with heavy usage, two sim cards, two email accounts, 5 hours screen on time, more than a hour of calls, etc. So I recommend it!
i have planned to buy this Phone.. Really it has heating issue and sudden loss of battery.?? Anybody have experience pour into water to check whether it is water proof or not.??
Mira , 12 Jan 2016I bought sony z3+ dual if i update software the phone will be better or not. The phone is goo... moreYour 4G signal must be weak, it causes the device to consume more power in order to search for a stable signal. If that happens you better switch to 3G instead to conserve power. 4G is supposed to be more power friendly compared to 3G and 2G but only when you can get full signal.
I have the z3 & Z3+ and have not experienced overheating, warming yes. But No issues on either and fully updates with op systems (didn't know there was a dual sim version)
get the z3+ ..update and reset ..using a PC companion or use the phone then z3+ will be fine :)
I bought sony z3+ dual if i update software the phone will be better or not.

Here is my battery experience with xperia z3+(phone is 6 days old.)
I left home at 8.00 am with around 96-97% battery and back at home at 8.30 pm with 37-40% bttry left. I watch 1080p movie with headphone at full brightness for around 1.5 hours. Wi-fi on all time, network signal is very weak in my office, so it consume little more battery. 20-25 minutes of asphalt8 play. 25-30 minutes of apps browsing. 5-10 minutes on call, 3-4 pic click.
Now u all can estimate the battery life.
