Watch as the Sony Xperia Z3+ overheats after a few seconds' camera app use

OnePlus 2, which will also be powered by the 810 SoC, won't be afflicted by overheating woes. But looking at the mess that Sony seems to have gotten itself into, one may view OnePlus' decision as ill-advised. Sony has said that a software update is on its way to address the overheating problem. But as the video below demonstrates, minor usage of certain camera functions can easily push the Z3+ to apparently unmanageable temperatures.OnePlus is adamant that its upcoming
The launch of the Xperia Z4 in Japan was marred by users complaining and retailers warning about the overheating tendencies, with many outlets advising shoppers to power down their device at regular intervals. Thus, the software update Sony speaks of cannot arrive quickly enough, and here's hoping the fix doesn't involve throttling the chip to a fraction of its capabilities.

Don't get that butthurt over some really obvious facts. Here is another video done by Btekt(don't tell me you trust them as well), and it is compared to the M9 and S6. But guess what? Even the M9 does a better job here. https://youtu.be/0EkHJw_VNcU Enjoy ;)

Probably before the update. I noticed it only got hot during the camera app but never in discomfort for me. But the camera app closes. With the update it takes a much longer time before closing. The ar mode still closes in around 3-4min which is pretty bad as you need to play first before knowing what picture you want. The 4k mode is pretty acceptable as i got 6minutes. I don't use the ar mode but it doesn't excuse sony. they shouldn't have put that mode in.

They should stop production on any handset that is suppose to have a SD810 chip in it. It would be better to delay the launch,and use another chip than to launch a turd of a device with this crappy chipset.

It needs some optimisation and better use of cores See, the new update of the HTC One M9 android 5.1 (2.7.401.1) has massive performance, thermal and battery life improvements now. It also has these new drivers also. I haven't tried it personally, but everyone using Maximus ROM 5.0.0, which is the first android 5.1 ROM for the M9, have very positive feedback regarding these parts. I agree S810 should have been flawless and in a better state, but still the dragon can be tamed. All that fuss is because octa-core setup is new for Qualcomm and they needed more time to optimise and control it better ;)
