A number of Sony Xperia Z users have reported their devices suffering from sudden death. Apparently, Sony's flagship has been shutting down for no apparent reason with subsequent efforts to bring it back to life proving unsuccessful, save for a hard reset in a few cases.

Sony has acknowledged the issue and promised that a fix is in the works. It will be delivered to the users via an upcoming software update.
