Unlocked Sony Xperia Z3+ reaches the U.K. at a cost of £499 ($777)
Despite the issues with the overheating Snapdragon 810 processor, the Sony Xperia Z3+ continues to launch across the world. While those in the U.S. can snag the unlocked version of the device as of right now, consumers in the U.K. can do likewise, with the Sony Mobile Store offering each color variant of the handset for £499. 

With a great build quality and strong feature set, the Xperia Z3+ is worthy company of the Samsung Galaxy S6, Apple iPhone 6, and all of the other big-hitters occupying the upper echelons of the smartphone arena. It's not a radical leap from the Xperia Z3, which may have dissuaded some would-be purchasers from taking the bait, but the more glaring issue with the Z3+ is that of its processor. 

To its credit, Sony has admitted that the device has an overheating problem, and begun to deliver on its promise of a fix. But with thermal throttling à la HTC's One M9 likely to be at least part of the remedy, Sony is bound to lose sales as the tech savvy look to swerve anything associated with Qualcomm's hot chip.

Still, if you're not put off by the controversy, the Sony Xperia Z3+ can be snagged at the source.
