  • Aiden Pearce

    Lets hope no much heating here!!!!

  • Xvestor

    Confirm not really overheat like the news..
    Just try it for use this phone enough long time

  • Fahad

    Aqua Green looks stunning to me, love to have one when arrive in Pakistan.

  • ramuk

    LOL, Galaxy S6 edge reach 74 degree, but it people don’t feel it hot and they don’t call the media for overheating issues. And the media don’t call the overheating S6 edge the hottest phone (literally) on planet, I mean come on it can reach 74 degree. But Z3+ reach 68 degree and media calls it overheating. Definitely something fishy going on here.

    Here comes Samsung’s paid trolls to defend Samsung’s honor. (Timel and his multiple account.)

  • Xvestor

    Yes, wtf with media
    At least be fair..

  • Svnjay

    Shouldn’t the 810 be clocked at 2ghz?

  • Xvestor

    I dont know , but this is z3+ we got

  • Aiden Pearce

    Well this looks good enough for me to get one once released in my region!!!

  • ramuk

    Dude, money can make anything happen. Overheating is issue on SD810 is definitely an overblown issue. Samsung PR department is doing an amazing job here. I wouldn’t be surprise if we hear about SD820 overheat as well if Samsung don’t use the chip. There was serious issue with earlier version (its a common thing with new chip), most because there are bugs but I’m sure they now fixed the issues. But Samsung PR department still milking the issue here. The reason is simple They want people to believe that S6/S6 edge the only option right now.

  • Aiden Pearce

    Hmm kernel is new but y dalvik still can’t understand!!!! Anyways do tell us your experiences !!

  • Timel

    Me and my multiple account?

    Hahahahaha you’re so funny ^_^
    It’s all in your head but it’s fine
    thx for making me laugh at you again and again LOL

  • Raito

    Uhm. CPU-Z is outdated or shows wrong info. Look at the architecture, it says Krait 450. SD810 is using stock ARM cores. I’m using AIDA64, already uninstalled CPU-Z

  • Timel

    I heard that hongkongian love Apple iPhones
    I don’t think they will buy Z3 plus which comes with heat issues and its shitty camera.

  • Xvestor

    I dont know about that, but this the lastest version of cpu z

  • Xvestor

    The phone is really smooth..
    And what i really got impressive is the camera is way better than before.. Thats really enough for me…
    Low light is smooth its mean less noise..
    In manual mode 20mp now you cant control iso..

  • Raito

    Yes. Even the latest version of CPU-Z has some inconsistencies.
    Isn’t SD810 manufactured using 20 nm? It shows there that it is 28 nm. You can try using AIDA64, same function with CPU-Z but gives better info.

  • mukul verma

    it has to be underclocked because of heating issue, both z3+ & htc m9 are underclocked.

  • P9

    hope no any issue, gonna get one soon ^^

  • jag

    How come they have it already?? Huhuhu! So jealous! It will be on sale herein Singapore from end of June to 1st week July

  • Jacky

    aqua green looks really nice to me…
    but i still wanna wait for snapdragon 820…

  • bilomar

    Aqua green version is a sexy beast.

  • Xvestor

    Very good result in temperature
    Wtf with media…
    Oh man this phone in fact is very good
    Lets be fair

  • Xvestor

    With other tools still good temperature

  • Xvestor

    Maybe, i do recheck with other app

  • dragonsneeze

    Is the camera glass really flush with the back? I mean if the back glass breaks from where the camera is, would you lose the camera too? I’ve seen two different prototypes on the Internet one was flush, one was seperate.

  • dmn666

    Could you run a memory test and post the speed? Just wanted to make sure it’s DDR4. Thanks!

  • Kamil1308

    Cant wait to get it. How are you finding it ??

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Bro you think you can do some comparison if you got any other phone? and Would you check if the phone gets heated and the camera app crashes when you select other different modes to take pictures?
    Plus Please tell us all about the battery performance :D

    Edit: Sorry for asking so many things cause I wanna know :D

  • Xvestor

    My friend have access to sony internal, so they get first even dont star sell officially

  • Xvestor

    Im sory but i still dont get point from what you want ask..
    Can you explain more clearly?

  • Pingback: ??????? ?? 3 ???? ?? ???? 735 ???? ?? ??? ????! + ?????? ????????? | ?????()

  • Xvestor

    Heat hmm yeah sometimes become warm like the previous model but it didnt really make trouble…
    Maybe if you play 4K video it become hot..
    Once thing again, when charge the device that help to improve temperature

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Flashbleed, he’s asking about

  • Pingback: ??????? ?? 3 ???? ?? ???? 735 ???? ?? ??? ????! + ?????? ????????? | ????? - ????? ????- ????? ???? ????? - ????? ???? ???? ?? - ????? ???? ????????()

  • Thariq Mohammed

    I think he’s asking about camera glass and back glass of the phone are same or seperate( like in older models)

  • Thariq Mohammed

    By assessing the official photos of the z3+, it look like no separate glass for camera but LED is separated from the back panel

  • Aiden Pearce

    Yes the cpu-z indeed is outdated n garbage ..I confirmed with aida64 and it confirms my z3 runs on ART 2.1.0
    AND it’s detecting only 4 a53 cores on above screenshot

  • Kevin A. Koesoema

    That available RAM……. In my Z3, it always have about 1.1-1.4 Gigs of RAM available. But, does the phone gets slow or kind of laggy? What about the multi-tasking?

  • Aiden Pearce

    Maybe multiple apps running.
    There is also difference in older z3 model
    My aida64 shows 2779mb
    N here it shows 2822mbmb
    Or Maybe because its ddr4 ram and 64 bit cpu always show more ram also in case of PCs

  • Kevin A. Koesoema

    Well… it’s different because Xvestor’s phone is Z3+, not Z3

  • roeshak

    Are you serious? You can’t control iso anymore at full resolution? WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON AT SONY MOBILE ????
    Can you double check this .Doesn’t sound right to me .Maybe they’ve moved the iso settings from where it normally is!

  • Aiden Pearce

    i think its similar to Z3 i gt a look at gsmarena review pics and it seems similar to Z3

  • Aiden Pearce

    dang no manual iso setting will be a bummer!!!
    is sony slowly getting rid of Manual Mode to force users to use SuperAuto mode??

  • dragonsneeze

    Yes like Thariq said does the back glass panel continue over the camera module or does the camera has its own glass? Some shots like the above one shows that the glass is not seperate, I also come across other reviews where it was not like that. GSMArena clearly says that it’s not seperate but they had a prototype, I was just curious about the retail model.

  • dragonsneeze

    GSMArena explicitly says so, but I wanted to confirm with a retail product.

  • dragonsneeze

    Yeah seems like that.

  • mohsen

    i am very strong fun of sony. but where is your source of news?

  • Timel

    Me and multiple account?


    It’s all in your head LOL

    But yeah I’m fine keep doing!
    Make me laugh at you again and again dumbfucker Hahahaha

  • theskig

    Thanks for sharing your first impressions.
    Btw I noticed you have the Dual version. Mmmm tempting me…

  • mohsen

    thats model number was E6533. mean that was Z3+

  • Andy Roid

    Where are the clock speeds?

  • Xvestor

    No, even its smoother than before

  • Xvestor

    I got information, schedule update sony now is around 3 month after announce update who will get..
    (not base from certification)

  • InspectorGadget80

    Stay AWAY FROM THIS PHONE ASIAN friends if u don’t want a over heat experience. Think I’m done buying Sony phones. MOTOROLA is using the 810 I’ll stay away from that n switch to LG

  • browngeek

    Sony HK are selling both the single sim and the dual sim Z3+ at the same price, however it seems the dual sim version only supports LTE Cat 4, while the single sim version supports Cat 6. Price of the Z3 (single and dual) in HK is HK$4,698 (c. USD602). Now is the Z3+ worth the additional USD133? Its lighter, thinner and you don’t have the flaps. But apart from that?

  • Jorge De La Rosa

    I really want this phone but i live in the US and knowing how sony is in the US i probably wouldnt be able to get this phone for another 6 months or so (i know i may be exaggerating but im in need of a new phone and 1 days feels like weeks.) so im curious if anybody knows how reliable 1shopmobile truly i!
