Sony offers clarification on Xperia Z3+ overheating complaints

Xperia Z3+

The Sony Xperia Z3+ was only recently announced by the company as a global version of the Xperia Z4, packing essentially the same hardware underneath. This also meant that the handset would use the Snapdragon 810 chipset from the Xperia Z4 and potentially bring some of its issues along with it.

After several reports confirmed what we already knew, Sony has now come out in defense of the Xperia Z3+ and the Snapdragon 810, by deeming overheating normal under some circumstances.

Here’s what the company said in its statement – “The Xperia Z3+ is a high-performance 64-bit octa-core device with advanced camera technology, in some cases, additional heat can cause functions to stop. Enabling applications can also be felt by the user through the glass on the back. This is normal for the unit and should cause no concern.”

It seems like companies are having a tough time defending their choice of going with the Snapdragon 810. This is something that LG managed to evade quite conveniently by picking the Snapdragon 808 for the LG G4.
