Sony Xperia Z2 shuts down when recording 4K videos

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

My Sony Xperia Z2 works like a charm in most situations. But it cannot seem to be able to handle more than a minute of 4k video recording. If the shooting lasts more than a minute or so, the phone shuts down.

Is this a common issue?

Is it a problem that can be fixed by me without the need of repairs?

Sony Xperia Z2 shuts down when recording 4K videos


The Sony Xperia Z2 Smartphone is one of the newest, if not the latest, model of Smartphones from Sony which was announced on February 2014 and released on April of the same year. It supports 2G, 3G, and 4G networks and uses a micro-SIM card. It measures 146.8 x 73.3 x 8.2 millimeters and weighs 163 grams.

It is IP58 certified which means it is dust proof and water resistant on more than 1 meter for 30 minutes. It has an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 16 million colors at 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution. The screen is protected by a shatter proof glass with Triluminos display and X-Reality Engine and supports multi-touch up to 10 fingers.

It runs on 3 GB RAM with 16 GB internal storage and microSD expandable up to 128 GB. It runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat powered by Qualcomm MSM8974AB Snapdragon 801 chipset on Quad Core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 processor and Adreno 330 GPU. It supports HTML5 for internet browsing and Java.

It is powered by a non-removable Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery with standby time up to 690 hours on 2G and 740 hours on 3G while talk time is up to 15 hours on 2G and 19 hours on 3G. The primary camera supports 20.7 megapixels at 5248 х 3936 pixels resolution with autofocus and LED flash featuring 1/2.3-inch sensor size, face detection, HDR, geo-tagging, touch focus, and panorama.

It can do video recording in 2160p at 30 fps, 1080p at 60 fps, and 720p at 120 fps with HDR. The secondary camera supports 2.2 megapixels and can do video recording in 1080p at 30 fps. If you have a problem with the video recording function of your handset, I guess you should check the available space in your internal storage.

When recording a video with your handset, the video is saved in the internal storage and if you can no longer record a video that lasts more than a minute then there is probably not enough free space in the internal storage. Move your files to a microSD card to free up some space and be able to record longer videos.

It has 16 GB of internal storage which is big and with this you should be able to record longer videos.
