Sony admits that the Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 are overheating, promises a software update is coming

Sony says that it will be sending out a software update to fix the issue sometime this summer. In the meantime the manufacturer suggests powering off your phone several times a day, especially when charging the device. And Sony also recommends that unsatisfied Xperia Z3+ and Xperia Z4 owners contact the Sony service center.
Those who have experienced the issue while testing an Xperia Z3+ say that the handset gets too hot while playing games, watching Netflix videos in HD, or when filming a video. As we showed you the other day, an Xperia Z4 run through the CPU-Z system identification tool showed the Snapdragon 810 SoC running as hot as 154 degrees fahrenheit.
Thanks for the tip!

Here comes the update to underclock the hell out of the chip just like the M9.

First, not all Android phones use SnapDragon even if most do. Not all SnapDragons had issues, so far only one...this one. At least Sony didn't blaming their buyers of their product. At least Samsung chose not to use it, in order to not bring a product to market knowing it had hardware issues like Apple has done MORE THAN ONCE!!! At least

Do you remember their add last year where they dissed Mediatek for using an octa core? They said and i quote: "A great processor should have BETTER CORES, NOT MORE". This year they shot themselves by going on the path they dissed and failed miserably at it, the only good thing about S810 is the LTE cat.10 and the GPU which is pretty good.

Both Apple and Samsung’s 64-bit processors are efficient and run smooth as butter. Boy do I miss TI, I wish they hadn’t dropped out of the game. Intel and AMD need to ramp up their game and they will run circles around Qualcr-p.

This manufactures sometimes amazes me. They did not test the phone to know it is overheating? Now they want to send updates. This kind of sound like a joke. Any manufacturer trying to used Snapdragon 810 SoC should look at the shares of HTC before making such an adventure.

To my understanding the M9 deactivates the quad core A57 cores to prevent the overheating, is that considered under clocking the device?

SD810 was a real disaster for almost all companies (except samsung and apple).

Sure Qualcomm, there's nothing wrong with the 810, it just so happens that pretty much every phone that has the 810 over heats like hell, total coincidence.
