Sudden death on xz3

After one month using the new xperia xz3 I sadly noticed a sudden death this morning. I was able to start again after holding Power Button and volume-bar at the same time. 

I just wanted to say, I am disappointed. I had'nt such issues for years! I always use Sony mobile

Re: Sudden death on xz3

System crashes do occur, very rarely, it's just how electronics are, any device, any manufacturer can for some reason have a system crash. Luckily, nearly all manufacturers build in a hard reset just for these occasions. Hopefully you won't need to use the Xperia hard reset again.

This happened to my device twice already.
One time during charging at night, another watching Youtube video.

Pixel 3/3 XL users reporting similar issues, so maybe Android 9.0 related?
