Sony Xperia Z3+ First Impressions

 

Underdeveloped. The spec sheet of Sony's new premium-range phone has quite a bit to offer. However, it exhibits some shortcomings in practice. For example, our review sample struggled with multiple small and big peculiarities that we did not expect.

Updated interfaces, a swift 64-bit SoC and improved cameras are the pros of Sony's Xperia Z3+. Unfortunately, that will likely affect the battery life, and the build of our review sample was not impeccable, either.

DxOMark Mobile report: Sony Xperia Z3+

 

The Xperia Z3+ is the international version of the Japan-only Xperia Z4. In the camera department, at least on paper, it's only a minor upgrade over the predecessor Xperia Z3. In fact, the main camera specification remains unchanged. A 1/2.3-inch...

Sony Xperia Z3+ Review

 

The Sony Xperia Z4 is actually more of a Sony Xperia Z3+, complete with the same branding for markets outside Japan. Thus, we couldn't help, but wonder – has Sony's strategy of upgrading its flagship smartphones twice a year, incorporating incremental...

Looks great ; Very bright screen ; Competent camera

Average performance for the class ; A big step back for battery life ; Probably less compelling than its predecessor

Many have scoffed at the seemingly benign upgrades between Sony Xperia Z device revisions, somewhat rightfully criticizing Sony for rushing to update its flagship handsets twice a year. And as far as incremental, insignificant upgrades go, the Xperia...

Sony Xperia Z3 Plus review

 

We've been huge fans of Sony's Xperia Z series, and the Z3+ should have been another slam dunk phone. But massive overheating problems make this one to avoid. It's a shame, because in every other way, this is the best Sony smartphone ever.

We wanted to love the Z3+, but it's fatally flawed. While Sony has worked hard to perfect the design and specification of its flagship phone, the choice of the Snapdragon 810 and its resulting overheating and shutting-down problems has rendered all of...

Sony Xperia Z3+ review: Sony phones in another incremental upgrade to its flagship line

 

More of the same from Sony – but is that a bad thing?

Slimmer build ; Great media options ; More power

Only incremental upgrades ; Loads of pre-installs ; Disappointing battery

Sony Xperia Z3+ review

 

It's sleek and speedy, but has Sony released something exciting?

Nice design ; Waterproof ; Remote play is good ; Cheaper than competition ; No more flap over USB

Gets hot ; Disappointing camera ; Bloatware ; Frustrating battery life ; Doesn't have a wow factor

When Sony announced the Xperia Z3+, many of us hoping for the Xperia Z4 were disappointed. Instead of getting a brand new flagship device with exciting new bells and whistles, we were presented with an iterative update that seemingly only brought a few...

Sony Xperia Z3+ review: Hot stuff (literally) - Pocket-lint

 

Sony has been moulding its Xperia Z-series flagship smartphone line into the perfect model. Well, it more-or-less achieved that with the Z3 towards the

Decent 5.2-in screen, slender build, waterproof and dustproof, generally smooth software experience

Gets too hot, battery therefore insignificant, camera overheats and is approximately useless, laggy video recording, fussy shortcut controls

From the lofty highs of the Z3, the Xperia Z3+ is, ironically, a big minus against Sony's Z-series. It's hotted things up in terms of design, but also all too literally: that Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor gets excessively hot, causing issues with...
