Anonym, 21 Mar 2013Well, I can think of a few recent ones with issues (Xperia S burned screens, Minis overheating... moreI understand where you are coming from but that didn't answer the question that I put to the OP. Name one other Sony phone that suffered from sudden death. I've worked in the mobile phone business for 7 years now and I couldn't honestly name more then a handfull of handsets that have teething problems. With the 'S' I had one of them back at release and mine had the yellow burn, I sold that one and bought another about 4 months later and not a single issue with the screen.
Its just a software issue... not entirely defected device.. so hope sony will come up with the update ASAP to get it fix. Cause xperia zl already recieve the first update.
I Had been using My SONY Xperia Z since the first day out.....!!! I am satisfy with it hence I didnt get any sudden death.....Maybe I am Lucky~~~
Sony Xperia Zwashed
HTC One flop
Samsung Galaxy S4everPlastic
I bought the xperia z a few days ago and believe me its better than any phone out there. I havent had any issues and its not the only Sony phone that we use in my family. I have got the xperia Z and S, the others in my family have the xperia P, xperia T, xperia U, xperia J and the xperia V and believe me we have never had any problems woth our SONY products.
We love you SONY
Bradles, 21 Mar 2013Name one other Sony phone that has sudden death? Ive got a Z my self and I haven't had this ha... moreWell, I can think of a few recent ones with issues (Xperia S burned screens, Minis overheating, Sola had digitizer issues, ...)
Having a phone plainly die is even more serious than the others, but let's not kid ourselves into thinking:
1) The others weren't really serious.
2) This is the first entry in the list of serious issues in Sony phones.
Sony doesn't fail any less than the other manufacturers, and despite all their fans convictions, Sony is only better at *perceived* quality -- not actual quality.
Nokia also suffer same problem, switch off even when battery still full.
Apple with connectivity problems (3G)
Samsung Galaxy SIII experiencing sudden death after couple of months.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini ST15i with their button flickering.
And now Sony Xperia Z with sudden death.
So... No more tests before release it to the market?
Run more tests before release it to market please...
Hehe.... Now smartphones are getting seizures...heart failures.... Well a phone like that needed a constant supply of water... Neptune is currently using one with no problems,you should think of relocating... :P
truefan, 21 Mar 2013you are a liar, apple never fails or have issues either hardware or software.cough* troll cough*
jaypee1991, 21 Mar 2013sony always have sudden death... SAMSUNG forever!!!!Name one other Sony phone that has sudden death? Ive got a Z my self and I haven't had this happen yet. My other half has a S3 mini and its happend a few times to her.
I hope mobile phone manufactures don't fudge Quality in favour of Quantity especially over the sudden death issue.
I don't see a big problem. Ipad 4 is rebooting for no reason. I am sure a software update can fix it.
