All is not well in the world of Sony Xperia V, as there has been a fair number of Sony Xperia V owners who complained that they do experience a ‘Sleep of Death’ bug on their respective LT25i smartphones. ‘Sleep of Death’ points to an issue where the smartphone refuses to wake up from a standby state, meaning the only way for the smartphone to resume working normally would be to physically remove the battery, insert it and turn the handset on again.
It seems that this issue began somewhere at the start of the Sony Xperia V’s commercial life – which would be somewhere in early December, where more and more folks have joined the growing chorus of woes. The Sony Xperia Support team has not responded to this issue since they last talked about it on January 10th, where they mentioned, “I’m just posting to inform you that this is being investigated with high priority at the moment. I will get back to you all as soon as I have more information or even better a fix.”
Certain users claim that the latest firmware (9.0.1.D.0.10) update does help in such a situation, while others claim otherwise. Booting the handset in safe mode does not seem to help, either, and we do hope that Sony Mobile will be able to get to the crux of the matter sooner rather than later, otherwise you would have some very upset customers who might not bother with Sony Mobile handsets in the future, no matter how waterproof they are.
