The reason why I spent the money on Sony phone is because of it's camera quality that I believe in, but the temperature rising n shutting down during my Video ING is too much to be acceptable... What's the point for me?... Xz is my last phone after so many series... Sony.. ...just go work on your Walkman.. U fail in your xperia's...

For me it's doing anything with the camera i get the popup heat worning with in 2 minutes if I record a video it will shut down in 4min I get heat slowdowns all the time even right now using Google Chrome. Playing any game slows down and proforms like a $50 phone. In winter it was OK for short usage only. In summer it's always slow. A restart will fix it for a minute or so but that's it. I have nothing running in the background so I am not overloading it. It's going back to Sony this week.

Hello

Overheating, camera shutdown after 1 minutes. It is impossible to use the phone for taking picture in normal condition. Yes normal situation when outside temperature is moderate. Defect and faulty product. Bad quality. To cover them Sony proposes new products every six months or upgrade of us. Finally, we, customers don't know who is responsible. I know now that high end, new product, high price is not a guarantee of quality.

Bye Sony.

 

BTW, I already complain about Sony quality product to my favorite network operator for action as they expose this brand to other new virgin customers.

Recently sent my XZ to Sony about this, they sent it back saying they replaced the camera driver. Now , being a techy i thought this would be a software driver but not according to the tech support it was something physical.

 

The phone is still getting hot, but not seen this error yet. Will keep you posted.

My xz phone is getting worst like ur one...every time I use an app it keeps on going off and restart again. Especially when I'm doing some important work on the phone this is really irritating as I lose all data. This problem has just started for a few months, but I'm already made up my mind that I will not stick with Sony phone anymore.
