The Sony Xperia Z3+ was suffering from an overheating issue, thanks mainly to the Snapdragon 810 SoC used in the device. Well, Sony hasn’t been idle all this while as they have started rolling out an update to fix this particular bug.
It’s only about 70MB in size, so it doesn’t bring a lot of other changes to the table. All that the chipset needs is to reduce the CPU and GPU speeds, so it’s possible that this update only changes that, although Sony hasn’t provided specific details on how it would be fixed.
Decreasing the CPU clockspeed in turn means that it won’t be running on the same power as it was originally supposed to, which would reflect in the benchmark scores as well. The update has started rolling out in some parts of the world and might take a few days to finish completely.
The Xperia Z3+ was marketed as an incremental upgrade over the Xperia Z3, hence giving credence to the name. But the company received a major setback as soon as the overheating complaints started to surface.
