according to xda

According to folks at XDA forum, who flashed the Marshmallow update via Sony flashtool, the firmware is quite smooth and without any lag. Besides, there are no heating issues. The AnTuTu benchmark score on Marshmallow is over 80K, which is more than when the phone was running on Lollipop, at 71k.

I have 2 phones from O2, both bootloaders are locked.
I think the bootloader of this Z3+ is also locked, so no flashing of ROM ... even the ROM from Sony.
So unlock pay of device plan gets the phone unlocked and the air plan cancelled ?

Never used o2 refresh but this is ideal.

Well that's a turn off for me. You're lucky if the manufacturers can be bothered updating their phone software to match the latest android update, and with locked bootloaders you are at the mercy of whether phone networks can be bothered deciding whether that update is good enough for their tastes to be released.

You can flash the phone with the official ftf file I've just done it to a z3 compact tablet it doesn't matter about bootloader to flash original software easy to do

The Z2 is the same and I have gotten used to it but it felt very unsafe at first.
£115 from Amazon Warehouse and just got updated to Marshmallow yesterday and no issues yet.
Good find
Nice but does the Z3+ have the screen cracking by itself issue that the Z3 has?
Good deal
Does this still have the overheating issues with the Snapdragon 810? Seem to be conflicting reports as to whether the Sony Update actually fixed the overheating issues.

Well as above according to the xda forums the over heating has been solved for that price it's a bargain best spec phone for the price

I was going to buy the Z3 (D6603) to flash the Sony's Android N but according to Sony's Xperia site you can't do it if the loader was locked by the Telco.

If your bootloader was locked by Sony then it'll be ok to flash Sony's ROM but not 3rd party ROM.

​MUST be done in 'cooling off period' which is within 14 days. Any calls/text/Internet used will need to be paid for.
I wish this was the Z3 for this price, I prefer the wireless charging via dock.

​They have it for same price on refresh mate choose 39.99 on 18 tarrif works out same price if that's what you prefer
Do you need to activate the O2 sim before requesting an unlock.
I'd have got this if it wasn't for the locked bootloader, shame. I don't know why Sony do this, Samsung et al don't do this in Europe so why do Sony. I've read if you get the phone sim unlocked then Sony will make the bootloader unlockable if you send the phone to them. But I've not seen a direct UK confirmation.
right so you need to be on o2 refresh before hand, how would or could I work it out without?
and how long does the stock usually last with these things, cheers guys.

I find the easiest thing to do is put sim in phone turn phone on log into my O2 then press on number down in right hand corner will say request unlock check imei is correct request it ring up pay 144 off then that's it u can even request it on phone the unlock code tell them to cancel airtime immediately as your in the 14 day period they will generate a bill for say 50p to a pound pay that in 14 days time that's it unlock usually is given within 72 hours and why do people keep going on about bootloader u can flash sim free software to these sonys easy within like 10 minutes so easy once u have a read on Google

You can flash official Sony Firmware easily but once Sony abandon it, no more updates to new Android versions if your bootloader is locked.

Are you a new Sony user, they're as bad as Samsung, will just drop support at a drop of a hat. They go through phases of good support, currently they're doing well, but they've done it before in the past, give it a few months and they'll probably go back to abandoning a wide range of devices completely.

Well they don't usually abandon support on the z series usually on the other ones they do
