Got my replacement phone today, it's nice to have an immaculate phone again. Updated to Lollipop and rooted and installed recovery, then did a nandroid backup on my previous phone and restored it on the new phone. It's like I didn't even miss a beat.

So, does anyone have the Z3+ or Z4 (as its called in some regions)? If so, how's that overheating problem?

My gf is looking for a new phone and she wants to try Android and Sony seems to be the best bet since we won't touch Samsung.

My replacement phones' headphone jack has already died, to the point it doesn't even detect anything is plugged in. Not impressed.

5.1.1 is out if no one noticed. Still no camera2 API, battery life is slightly worse but I want to try clear cache first.

Battery drain is worse than 5.0.2, there is some interesting add on especially the silent mode, and individual volume for alarm, media and ringtone. Although people say camera video quality is improved, the stills are still crap.

Someone make a good camera mod that allows manual shutter speed and ISO control in stock camera app.

On the other hand Sony released new firmware 23.4.A.1.200, no changelog so far weirdly. But some people on xda say the camera improved and a bit better battery life. I just flashed it, will update if I find anything interesting.

Took a bit longer than 2 months, but I finally have a Z3+ got a new one fairly cheap, as my S3 is basically a paperweight now.

Great phone so far, very impressed with it.

Highly Impressed with the phone, using my DS4 with a Nyko phone grip and it's playing emulators great, and a lot of games also support gamepad.

Plus PS4 Remote Play and even can use my DS4 to stream PC games to my phone, plus with mouse support etc.

Didn't know the Xperia you can move apps to the SD CARD, very handy though from what I hear Android 6.0 you can make the SD Card act like internal storage.

Updated to 23.4.A.232, after a while it develops a problem with top of the touchscreen isn't responding to touch making it impossible to drop down the notification bar. Several people with the same ROM develops similar problems which is annoying, and too bad I deleted the old .ftf file so I can't revert back either. Some say it might be water damage, but I never dunk my phone into water or anything so it's impossible to be it. Planned obsolescence?

I'm not gonna buy Z5 Compact nor any Sony phones, I still hate Sony for gimping their camera with crappy camera algorithm. Currently I'm using ASUS Zenfone 5 which my sister's before it develops strange blank screen problems. Turns out the remedy is simple, remove the back cover, undo few screws and unplug the battery from the mainboard and reattach it.

My Zenfone being wonky again so I back to my faulty Z3 Compact. I don't know whether I want to fix the screen or buy new phone. For those who still using Z3 Compact, do you planning to upgrade or buy new phones in this coming months?

*as long as you encrypt your phone, external storage and don't want to take out/switch out sd-cards.
