Xperia Z5 crashed and won't turn back on



I'm looking for a bit of advice after the multitude of Google results haven't resolved the issue I'm having. Basically I took my phone off of charge and started scrolling through my various social medias, with no issue. All of a sudden my phone froze. The bottom half of the screen, including the button bar, turned into a large area of what appeared to be static. The phone now will not power on, charge, or respond to hard reset methods (volume up + power, or using the Off button in the Sim/SD slot.


Is my phone dead? It has been getting rather hot lately when using apps such as YouTube, sometimes resulting in a high temperature in device notification displaying.


Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.
