Carmanen, 12 Jul 2016You are extremely lucky that your phone is not plagued by bad battery like majority seems to have.I recall i had battery problem after my phone updated its OS in 2014. The new OS seem to drained my battery big time. But after few weeks, the problem's gone..and my phone works excellent till now. Thx God...i guess i am kinda lucky ;)

I've been a Sony Ericsson/Sony phone user since 2004. Love them so much ...... other than perhaps Motorola or HTC, no other smartphone brands IMHO pack the same combination of performance, intelligent & beautiful designs, intuitive UI and price.
I'm currently on a ZL using Lollipop. Last phone was an SP.
Yesterday my ZL suffered "sudden death" too, only after 2 months of use ._. Are those sudden death problems really that bad with ZL because dozens of users have reported that their ZL died after only couple of months or even weeks!?! I have send it back to online store where i bought it and i hope it will not be repaired because i don't want another ticking timebomb that breaks too... ...i hope i'll get some other Xperia phone within the same price range. Too bad, i really liked ZL :/
look at this
it can be the battery or ic regulator, in videos explain how disasemble and test
My only issue the speaker phone and earpiece volume are not loud.
my sony xperia zl battery was empty n it was switched off n i charged it for an hours but still ot was not switching on,wat i have to do know??anyone can help me
great phone. i had the sudden death also, but i replaced battery and now everything is fine.i used you tube video step by step instructions.
XYZ, 19 May 2016I purchased Xperia ZL 2 years ago.yesterday i was browsing my internet suddenly chrome hanged ... moreDon't worry, you are not alone. I brought my ZL in Sept 2013,and a month later it just snapped and turned off out of nowhere. Even after restart it will boot for a while and again goes off, sometimes i get to see the home screen for a few seconds if I'm lucky.I took it to a sony service outlet and they promptly replaced it in a few weeks. I asked them what the hell went wrong in a month old phone, 'Connector issue sir' was their only reply. Sony Service won't touch ur device for repair, they'll only replace and since ur warranty is long gone you will be asked to pay like ₹10,000 ($180) and u'll have options to compensate with models like Z, Z1,ZR depending on the availability,since ZL is not made in large scale. Well what i suggest is you can easily get it repaired with a local reputed shop albeit a reputed one for a fraction of that price. But believe me after that replacement my phone is still working like a charm and it has served me extremely well for 2.5 years now and my next phone is still a few months away. Good luck.

XYZ, 19 May 2016I purchased Xperia ZL 2 years ago.yesterday i was browsing my internet suddenly chrome hanged ... moreWhat i have read, that unfortunately is a very known problem with Z and ZL :/ Both models are suffering from sudden deaths but not every model. I'm afraid that you are just unlucky and your ZL is dead now... ...can you replace it?
