Another One Bites the Dust; Sony Z4’s S810 is Overheating

Another One Bites the Dust; Sony Z4’s S810 is Overheating

In what has devolved from a hot debate to reluctant denial, no pun intended, the Snapdragon 810 saga continues amidst a flurry of consumer dissatisfaction around reports of the chipset overheating. What began with the LG G Flex 2 continued with other flagships like the HTC M9 and the Mi Note Pro, and the latest to join the fray is Sony’s Z4/Z3+.

A while ago, Z4 users began complaining that the device began heating Qualcomm-Snapdragon-810up when gaming or watching HD video, and tests showed that it was reaching an astounding 154°F(67°C). After a short period of silence on the matter, the Japanese OEM has stepped forward and admitted that both the Z4 and Z3+ suffer from the overheating issue, and advised users to turn off their devices multiple times a day, especially when charging. Sony also stated that a software update to fix the problem would be rolling out this summer, but for anyone familiar with the S810 ordeal, that statement is well worn.

Despite the imminent update, the gravity of the situation is not lost on Sony, and unsatisfied users have been advised to head to the nearest service center.

Do you think the update will fix the issue? Will you consider a Snapdragon 810 device after everything that has happened? Let us know in the comments below!
