Unlocked Sony Xperia Z3+ now available in the US via Amazon

Unlocked Sony Xperia Z3+ now available in the US via Amazon
The Xperia Z3+ started its global rollout last week, but it doesn't look like the handset will be officially released in the US. However, you can now order the new Xperia in the US via Amazon, which lets you buy any of the handset's four color versions (black, white, copper, and aqua green) starting at $650 - see the source link at the end of this article. You can even order the smartphone's dual SIM variant, but this will cost you an extra $10 or $20.

Obviously, the Xperia Z3+ that's available via Amazon comes unlocked. It's a GSM phone with support for AT&T's and T-Mobile's LTE networks, but it will not work on Verizon and Sprint.

The Z3+ is the upgraded successor to last year's Sony Xperia Z3, featuring an enhanced 5.2-inch 1080p display, a thinner water-resistant body, a 5 MP front-facing camera, and an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. Some users are reporting that the Z3+ is overheating in various situations, but Sony said that it would release a software update to fix the problem.

If you're not interested in the Z3+, you should know that Sony will soon release the Xperia Z4v via Verizon Wireless. Unlike the Z3+, the Xperia Z4v features a 5.2-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, and a slightly larger battery (3000 mAh).

It's okay at least. The z3 has a linger batterylife but thats probably because it generates heat. I'll wait till the next updat to know if I'd sell the z3 or the z3+. It's a very beautiful phine though

I've read the official review of this phone on GSMArena and the battery is a total nutjob.. :( This is by far the most fked up Sony sequel I must say

That's why I'm sticking with my Z3. At least the Z3 doesn't get hot enough to burn your arse..

How is it a bad? It outlasts current flagships, and a few folks using the Z3 running Lollipop have claimed battery life isn't near battery life in KiKat

My Z3 on Lollipop is a beast. The battery life hasn't made me miss my 6 Plus, and it is actually a premium design, unlike the S6 with its misaligned ports and buttons.

It's all through 3rd parties, not officially Amazon. You really should clarify that! It's also been available through Expansys USA for awhile.

I love Sony and from time to time I still use my Z3 compact, but this is about $200-$250 over priced specially that it does not bring anything new to the table.
