Phone freeza

I have had my z3 compact since its been available on handtech......Ordered it to Portugal.

 

Quite happy with the device but theres a catch, I just had the phone freeze on me whilst playing real racing 3 and now i  can t do anything, the device goes into sleep mode and only showms me the screen of the game its frozen at and since the battery is non removable i have no idea how to get it to restart without haing to wait for the battery to drain out. HELP!

Re: Phone freeza

Did you downloaded the game from the play store? if you did then it could be a compatibility issue, this is up to the game developers to address, contact the game devs

Re: Phone freeza

Open the bottom left cover (the one that covers where you put your sim).

 

Next - you will see a little yellow button - on the left side where the SIM slides in

 

Push that button with a small pointed object until the phone shuts off...

 

Hope this helps,

Re: Phone freeza

That's another way to do it, just be careful not to press the button to hard as its quite fragile

Re: Phone freeza

That's normal, that the phone will heat up while playing games, don't worry about it. As for waterproof, it should work just fine, BUT make sure that ALL the covers/flaps are firmly closed.
