Sony working on software fix for overheating Xperia Z3+
In what seems like a growing – and surely alarming – trend in the smartphone scene these days, another report of device overheating surfaced this time involving the Sony Xperia Z3+ (or Z4 in Japan). And what does this smartphone model have in common with all the others that had the same issue? They all have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset inside.
In Japan, the flooding of customer complaints on the matter prompted shops to give standard advice to prospective buyers to turn their handsets off every now and then to cool down (which may leave you wondering if there really is anyone who found such option acceptable).
Testing made on the Xperia Z3+ in the Netherlands confirmed the veracity of the overheating issue and it has been found to happen during camera use and gaming. Aside from the device turning extremely hot, running apps crash after giving out a warning message.
In response, Sony assured the public that a software fix will be circulated in the summer to address the problem and that their service center doors are open for those needing assistance. Users are hoping that the promised fix will not turn out to be a mere remedy that will compromise performance.
