As you guys know, I am usually a Pro-Sony Mobile person. However, due to some gut instincts, I have decided to not make the purchase of the not-so-recently released Sony Xperia Z3+.
Here are some of my own personal reasons for not buying the Xperia Z3+.
1. Dear Sony, you changed all the freaking magnetic docks … WHAT THE HELL am I gonna do with 6 different Magnetic Docks that I have owned since Xperia Z1?
2. And oh, the Qi-Wireless Casing that I bought for my Xperia Z3 … with the launch of Xperia Z3+, you have rendered the S$128 accessory use-impaired … can see, maybe can fit but cannot friggin use … because of the removing of the Magnetic Ports … WISE MOVE SONY.
3. Incremental update of Processor + change to an “open port” for charging … yes Sony, but you do know that your open Ports from the past (ie. 3.5mm audio port) that is open is PRONE to corrosion by water? I have personally experienced that with my Z2 and Z3 … in fact they were so bad that I only use Wireless connectivity for all my connections, including backing up of my device (that’s the perk, you can wirelessly connect to your PC with your Sony device.).
So after TGB is a little abit pissed off with the announcement of Z3+ and Tablet Z4, mainly due to personal reasons above, he have decided to move on with his life. However, the ghost of Sony Mobile Singapore’s (sorry friends in Sony Mobile Singapore) incompetence comes back to haunt TGB big time.
You see, even though TGB didn’t buy the Xperia Z3+ or the Xperia Tablet Z4, he have still successfully converted at least 10 personal friends to get the Sony Xperia Z3+ …
But that’s where the headache started.
Almost on a daily basis, TGB have to become tech-support for one common issue … THE BLOODY OVERHEATING of Z3+ due to the SnapDragon 810 processor.
Same thing that I chided Samsung about, and now Sony is following into their footsteps – UPGRADE to latest for the sake of upgrading is NOT a step forward. In the first place, Sony Mobile have yet to solve their “4K Video Recording Crash” issues, and this new process have brought everything to new heights …. crashing the phone with just the camera on … and temperature running to 66degC on a device? WOW!!! Are we going for some outdoor cooking that we didn’t know Sony’s new Z3+ can do?
I am sorry Sony, but you have been nothing but a disappointment of late.
You have made a lot of TGB’s friends very ANGRY!
