Some initial comments on this update. I had major problems, caused by software on the PC that was monitoring the USB ports for hardware changes, which caused the update process to fail after initial rebooting. This at one point caused the dreaded Authentication dialog from "Protection by My Xperia". This would not accept my password, even though I knew I entered all details correctly. Rebooting my phone initially seemed to work, then stopped again with the authentication dialog, but THIS time the password was accepted.
The reason for this lack of acceptance of my password (seen in other posts, especially on the Z4 forum) was, I realised, due to the My Xperia app being unable to "dial home" the initial reboot had left my phone unconnected to the phone network AND unconnected to WiFi. There was even a dilog box for wifi, which I thought a bit strange at the time. So, if you do not have a working and connected WiFi connection when you get a My Xperia authentication problem, the app will refuse to accept your password.
However, the best advice I can give is to disable My Xperia protection as soon as possible. Be VERY CAREFUL if you have multiple users set up, though, as there is a bug that may cause problems in this situation

After this update my Z3+ works better then ever. On 28.0.A..7.24 firmware overheating was fixed for me. It was heating a lot but no overheating. Now on 28.0.A.8.251 firmware heating is much lower (even when I am playing games it is not overheating, only heats and when phone is on quick charge and I am working phone is only warm) and lag from 28.0.A..7.24 firmware is fixed. So battery is good now, 1 to 2 days depending on what I am doing. It is more 2 days than 1 day. So I am happy whit this update. This is how Z3+ had to look when it came out at first. Sony learned lession about Snapdragon 810 on Z3+ and I am confident that Z5 series will not overheat. Overheat is past for me.
