Sony should supply piezoelectric cooling cases for these phones, so we can actually use them?
Or is the main reason that they're water proof, so we can store them in our icebox together with the drinks?

Your are not alone with this situation on the XZ...
I also have heating problems, mainly when using the camera either on photo, 1080p/30fps and especially when filming in 1080/60 or 4K. The 10 minutes mark is an achievement with my XZ and the phone has to be on idle for a while before using the camera and air temperature has to be fairly cold...
So taking pictures of two dogs catching tennis balls on the beach as advertised by Sony is a NO NO for me. And it ain't because i don't have a dog! ...

Although the overheating message pops out, doesn't mean it really hot as we feel, just other phone don't have overheating alert

I noticed that thermal threshold limit is around 50-55C on most sensors and some off them get a little bit higher when the camera app shuts down.
Maybe Sony could release a firmware with higher threshold if the hardware could resist. Secundary effect would probably be shorter life of the components (before warranty period finishes) and that wouldn't be economically viable for them.... :smileysmileywink:

It is very sad that you buy Mobile has been promoted on the basis of the camera and the tremendous advantages and can be used to capture the important moments in your life as promoted by Sony I think that Sony Corporation has exercised a kind of monument on the customers in the phone XZ.
Also it's sad and silly at the same time is to ignore the views of the people and the lack of mistakes recognition even when we're talking on Sony's official website did not interfere with anyone by Sony to respond to a proposal or solution company did not go out and vowed to solve the problem.
I do not know what Sony engineers are doing since the appearance of problems in xperia Z until xperia XZ What they made to resolve the problem and they know that the biggest reason for declining sales and the loss of clients were big fan of sony phones
I hope someone in sony officials has dignity to reply or apology to customers

I have fully same issue with you and you can find my message in this forum.
I made various testing and learned that this issue is related to face tracking feature.
If you record a person, camera tracks a face and it effect to the temperature.
But if you record a landscape or things, the recording time would be longer than portrait recording.
I don't know what the above is correct, but i'm sure that this is irritated issue.
