I'm kind of freaking out... I was charging the phone. It got to 90%, and I picked it up, unplugging it. Checked something on it, pressed power button to turn off screen and set it down again. Came back to it a few minutes later, and... it's dead. Absolutely no response to anything I do. Plugging it in: nothing. Holding down power button for long time: nothing. Popping out the SIM card: nothing.

It's an Android. Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact.

What can be done??

Things to try:

1. Hold down both Volume Down and Power to force reboot

2. Hold down a Volume down and plug in a usb connected to a Windows PC, if you see a colored LED light you are in recovery mode and could possibly use Xperia Companion on the computer to reimage.
