today my phone suddenly started to act crazy so I couldn't use it at all. It started to turn off on its own accord (frequency increased over the day to several times within minutes). When I tried to use it, the screen froze after a few seconds (sometimes I also was notified that either the software or the currently used app isn't reacting) so I either had to start it again manually or it somehow did so on its own accord. This even happened when I didn't do anything on my phone while being in the standby mode. Due to the constant shutting off and on again, my battery was drained really fast as well.
Since I didn't do any updates recently and don't know why all of a sudden my phone acts this crazy I wanted to ask if anyone knows what is wrong with my phone or how to fix it (it is about 2 1/2 years old so maybe it could be due to age)? Thanks in advance!

I had this problem too yesterday, and also my gf, i fixed it using the repair software tool in the xperia companion from PC, be sure to backup first, didn't find any other solution.

I can't verify because it seems to happen when you use apps or even try to create widget of downloaded apps that used to work just fine, and in safe mode I can't replicate these actions, both in safe and normal mode, if i don't use the phone it seems to work fine, it doesn't reboot itself, it happens only when i use it, I asked another friend with the same phone and it is happening on his phone too, so imho it's a problem android or sony side

if you don't experience the same issue while on safe mode then it's a third party app that's causing the issue.

I tried out what you suggested but still my screen froze and the phone turned itself off. Can't be the SIM card then but thanks for your suggestion!
