Sony Xperia Z3+

 

Sony's made a habit of updating its flagship phone every six months or so, and the Z3+ is the latest example. It's taken a little longer this time around, but the Z3+ is the ‘six-monthly' update to the Xperia Z3 that was launched in September last...

Fewer annoying flaps and ports ; Less-is-more approach to software ; Water and dustproof

Unacceptable overheating issues ; No optical image stabilisation ; Poor HDR photo mode

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: Hot stuff (literally)

 

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 end of 2014, so for the new Z3+ to arrive mid-2015 led us to believe we'd be getting more hot stuff....

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...

Sony Xperia Z3+ review

 

The phone that isn't the Xperia Z4 (but is really)

Super-punchy screen ; Purer design ; Good performance

Prone to overheating ; Worse battery life than Z3 ; No particularly exciting upgrades

A solid and likeable phone with great battery life but overheating issues keep it from the top of the pile

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

The Xperia Z3+ plays it a little too safe to vault above its competitors. It's a fine phone in its own right and has lots of promising features, but when compared with the latest flagships, it just doesn't cut it.

Sony Xperia Z3+ review - not the Z4 we were hoping for

 

Superb performance, but the otherwise identi-kit specs to previous Xperia Z phones mean the Xperia Z3+ fails to impress

The Z3+'s display doesn't measure up to Samsung's Super AMOLED panel either, and the phone's glossy chassis just isn't quite as attractive as the semi-translucent Z3. It simply doesn't do enough to make it stand out from the competition. It's still a...

Sony Xperia Z3+ review: Luxury design spoiled by overheating issues

 

The Sony Xperia Z3+ has looks to kill for, but it suffers from a serious overheating problem, poor battery life and software quirks.

The Sony Xperia Z3+ has a gorgeous minimalist design, a vivid screen and its waterproofing means it won't shut down the first time it gets dropped in the toilet.

It suffers from a worrying overheating issue, the battery life doesn't impress and the camera software is awkward to use.

While the Sony Xperia Z3+ is a great-looking bit of kit, its mediocre battery life, software quirks and of course its serious overheating issue makes it one to avoid.

Sony Xperia Z3+ Review: In Depth

 

Sony Xperia Z3+ review: A non-essential upgrade that would still be an excellent all-round smartphone, were it not for the overheating issues. Known in other...

Clear, colourful screen ; Strong cameras ; High-Res Audio ; Sexy design and waterproof

Overheating problems ; Short battery life for video

Sony’s Xperia Z3+ isn’t an essential upgrade if you already own the Xperia Z3 or even the Xperia Z2, with just a slight tweaking of the specs and a couple of new features to boast of. Those heating issues are also very real and concerning, especially...
