Some Sony Xperia Z models are turning into water resistant paperweights; Sony to offer a fix
Some owners of the Sony Xperia Z are finding that their high-end device is turning into an expensive, but water resistant, paperweight. Based on the experience of those whose phone has died in front of their eyes, one minute the Sony Xperia Z is alive and vibrant, and suddenly it has moved on toward the light. Some have managed to bring their Xperia Z back with a hard reset by pressing on the power button while at the same time, pushing the volume button up. But this has worked only in a small number of cases.

Sony says that the problem is related to a low battery charge, but that is refuted by those whose Sony Xperia Z passed away with a full charge. The good news is that Sony Mobile is fully aware of the problem and a fix is being readied to go out with the next software update. Unfortunately, Sony does not have an exact date when this update will be going out.

So how about our loyal readers? Anyone have a Sony Xperia Z that just took its last breath recently?
