Watch Xperia Z3 with Snapdragon 801 outrun the throttled Z4/Z3+ with Snapdragon 810
This thermal throttling, however, might mean that your fresh Xperia Z3+/Z4 handset, could have performance equal to, or only slightly better than its Z3 predecessor. Don't believe us? Well, just take a look at the video below, which compares both synthetic benchmark results, where the Z4 has a slight edge over the Z3, and real world performance in terms of loading times and the like, where the Z3 often matches or even beats its successor. The video is in Vietnamese, but the drift is pretty self-explanatory.
