I have the same problem
My phone gets a swap of motherboard. After that I had the same problem of auto shutdown.
I again gave the phone to Sony service center in India.
But yesterday when i received my phone it was working normal. But from today same problem.
They had reply me as my Sim card or memory card is a problem.
I have been using my Sim card and memory card of 64GB in Samsung Note 2 since a month.
My mom is also using Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. As we took it had the same problem. Buts its motherboard has been got replaced and now its 8 months it working absolutely fine.
I am very disappointed with Sony.
I am using Sony from last 12 years and have used sony's and sony erricsson's best phone but this is the first time things are happening with me.
Great phone, have had mine for a year now, always in its nassin case with nuglass front glass protection. This phone has been dropped lots of times and the nuglass protecter did crack but the screen didn't so I just keep replacing the screen protecters and not the screen(done this twice). The nuglass protecters are a must for any new phone would highly recommend them. I think mine cost ten bucks from ebay. Evey time you put a new one on my friends would say do you have a new phone? The down side of my z3 is the sony cradle I used to change my phone pulled the charging port out of my phone so I had to use the usb port to charge my phone so now the flap that covers it does not shut properly and spends most of its time dangling off the side of my phone being a pain in the butt. This is still the best phone I have had a would get another sony if this one died.
Ador, 29 Dec 2015I have only been using this phone for 2 months..Recently i accidentally dropped it from a heig... moreThe back glass actually is too fragile and sometimes doesn't even require a drop to be broken i.e. can self crack - at least in my case. See what happened to my z3c here:
The first long crack that you see on the top right appeared on its own. However, the rest of it that you see in the shape of web appeared only once I accidentally dropped it from a small height. I am in no way going to replace it since its a good INR 3,500 investment for me.
Hope this helps.
So I am a small screen lover. And struggling between the choice of an Iphone 5 S and a Sony Experia Z3. The benefits of a 128 GB Expandable Memory vs a 16 GB locked in the Iphone 5S. The Glass Shattering phenomenon of the Z3 vs the lower battery life of an Iphone 5S. I guess the one which did it for me is a user referring to the Z3 as a Child, which i might want to to freeze sometimes and ship off to China. The Analogy helped me finally rule out the Z3. Thanks GSM arena for proving a Great platform over the years, even though i am posting my first comment here now.
Tj-Mir, 20 Dec 2015using z3 compact from several months perfectly
now i want to change/upgrade my phone
plz sug... moreZ5c compact would be obvious choice if you were satisfied with it's predecessor Z3c...Z5c has no longer any flaps on ports now completely uncovered and put in the right place,mat or frosted glass on the back which is awesome(can't pick up any fingerprint's),superior chipset,improved front camera and new rear camera is currently the best compared to any smartphone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlT37ZPOyww
...but if you can wait S7,G5 will soon be out and Z6 shortly after in spring.
Really good phone! Can't understand why people are complaining of cracked screens after dropping a glass back and front phone? What the f**k happens when u drop an actual glass? Also obviously the glass will cracking if it goes from one extreme temperature to another just like running a glass under cold water after washing in roasting water it may cracking depending on thickness! Seriously what did u people do at school! Had a couple of Xperia now and never had a problem! Love them!!! Had my old one 2 years + with no problems (even dropped nearly every day!) obviously have to be more careful with this as it's not a plastic piece of shit!

Very good and nice looking phone! I have the green one and my wife the white version. I protect them only with allien surface screen and back protections and they both are in perfect shape, after aprox. 1 year of using them. We droped them several times, also on the rocks, and NO PROBLEMS at all. I like everyting at this phone, the size, the speed, the battery, the camera!!! The best value for your money!!!
ethereal, 16 Dec 2015I too was in a complete denial commenting here about how durable it is, well, until mine broke... moreyou just drooped your phone on rocks and glass is shattered? WOW I would never expect that to happen.... I mean it's just some rocks and glass....

'' ?? we already have this phone and know how good it is so no need for you to tell us about it so make sure who you are referring to.
better luck trolling next time...
Gosh I hate trolls... be it Sony,Samsung,HTC or LG page.....BUT there is also iPhone page feel free to troll there... apple is crap anyway....so you cant say anything bad about it what is not true already LOL
Well all the people i am saying honestly that this is the best phone since i am using since last 6 months. I applied hard screen protector and using it roughly but it is still in same great shape and never hangs. Download latest games with no fear. Size is perfect for gents who keep it mostly in pocket without any fuss and hassle. Battery life is much better than my second phone iphone 5s.
I've had my z3 compact for over a year, an ordinary case did its job and the glass never broke even though I dropped it accidentally several times. But something happen to it and it's been going more crazy then a teenage boy in a nightclub. It shuts down with no warning and refuses to turn on even after soft and hard restart. I rebooted it to fabrication setups and still went balluba. I can only say it's a love/hate relationship having the phone even though I'm proud to been its keeper with not even one scratch on it. So now I have lost all my contacts, the phone and I am forced to go back to Facebook even though I hate it. Sure it's an okey app, but give me a break people. Engagement here, baby there, shits up and monkeys down. So yeah if you have patience then the phone is perfect for you, but if you want to stuff the phone into a box of water and freeze it. Then this is not the phone for you. Good luck people, it's a good phone, but it's kinda like having kids. You love having them, but sometimes you wouldn't mind stuffing them in a box and ship them to China. Just sayin
I've used this phone for 2 months. It worked great until the vibration just stopped working out of the blew. Then one month later I dropped it and the screen cracked a little and this completely stopped my display from functioning. After paying 400$ to buy it I am not going to spend 250$ to fix the display. Also, the "waterproofness" is assured by the fact that all the output wholes are covered, but my covers didn't close anymore.
