Remember those issues surrounding the Snapdragon 810 that caused Samsung to ditch the processor in its Samsung Galaxy S6 range due to overheating issues? Well it seems that the Sony Xperia Z3+ has confirmed that there is an overheating problem.
In a video captured reviewing the device, the Sony Xperia Z3+ is shown overheating and crashing in a matter of seconds while running the built-in Camera app.
Shooting standard images or capturing 1080p video seems to not be a problem at all, but when attempting to capture 4K video or using some advanced built-in features like augmented reality mode, the Xperia Z3+ overheats and shuts down.
Sony has already insisted that the overheating is normal and isn’t a problem, but clearly this isn’t intended behaviour. Sony are already working on a fix for the issue and will be delivered as OTA updates for the camera. Whether it’s the Snapdragon 810 or the Camera app itself causing the issue remains to be seen and will have to wait until after the Camera app is updated to conclude.
