Sony Xperia Z3+ hits UK, sleek Ice Green model looks awesome

You can now bag yourself Sony’s latest flagship phone, the Xperia Z3+, here in the UK. But you’ll need to head to Carphone if you want the Ice Green model and a free bundled Hi-res audio package.

Sony’s Xperia Z4 has finally made it to British shores as the Xperia Z3+, packing a super-slender design, 5.2-inch Triluminous display and a fresh new 5-megapixel selfie cam, with some rather interesting (and terrifying) camera modes. And now you can grab it from Carphone Warehouse, bagging yourself an exclusive Ice Green model as well as a free Hi-res audio bundle.

Check out our hands-on Sony Xperia Z3+ review

The Ice Green Sony Xperia Z3+, shown above, is one of the best-looking versions of the handset we’ve seen. We love the subtle palette, which should get a few heads turning when you whip it out on the bus.

Carphone’s Xperia Z3+ deal promises free delivery of the phone on Monday if you order online. And as an extra incentive, you get a free set of Sony MDR10-RC headphones plus 90 days of Tidal access and six Hi-res audio albums.

The Xperia Z3+ doesn’t come cheap of course, with tariffs starting at £32 a month with a £60 up-front cost. And if you want the phone for free, that’ll be £40 a month. For that you get unlimited UK mins and texts and either 1GB or 2GB of data depending on your choice – or you can pay more for extra data.

Our only concern is that in Japan there have alrady been reports of the Xperia Z4 overheating, an issue thought to be caused by the Snapdragon 810 processor which is also found inside the Xperia Z3+. So the quandary then is, bag yourself one now, or wait to see if similar issues crop up in the Xperia Z3+?
