    which version of the snapdragon 810 chipset this model features? original (with over-heating issue or Snapdragon 810 v2.1- upgraded and heat-free variant of the chipset), thanks.
    Asked by: Allen S.
    I have a Sony Ericsson Xperia z3+ and I really like the phone. I am on my second phone because I broke the screen on the first. Both phones have had over heating problems. I have been dealing with the back of the phone coming off because it has made the battery swell to the point of pushing the back of the phone off.
