Sony Xperia Z3 Plus camera app crash overheating

Although available in some parts of the world, we’re still waiting for the Sony Xperia Z3+/Z4 to make its way to the states, where it will soon arrive on Verizon as the Xperia Z4v. So what can Verizon owners expect when it launches this summer? Hopefully, not the same problems the overseas variant is experiencing where the phone reportedly gets so warm, the camera app can’t run for more than a few seconds before it crashes due to the rising temperatures.

It’s actually a pretty common issue, one that’s affected Xperias in the past and not just the Xperia Z3+ which is powered by the Snapdragon 810 processor. After hearing reports of this latest “bug,” the folks at AndroidPit decided to put their Xperia Z3+ unit to the test. Sure enough, they were only able to operate the camera app for a little over 30 seconds before receiving a notification that the “camera will now turn off temporarily to cool down.” Video proof can be found below.

The good news is that Sony Mobile has apparently confirmed the bug and says that a fix is on the way. So there’s a good chance that when the Sony Xperia Z4v launches here in the states in a few weeks, this issue will be resolved. Of course, as we mentioned before, this issue has plagued Xperia devices in the past and with Qualcomm’s infamous Snapdragon 810 at the helm, we imagine Sony has their work cut out for them.
