I really like my phone.I use it for nonstop gaming (Paradise War).I have it for more than an year ,but a few months ago started restarting a lot on it's own.
It says there is no sim when it restarts,while there is.It can restart endlessly (when I am not using it,when I use it it doesn't).Rarely shuts down completely,needs a charger to start.
I wonder what is the problem, was it the overheating it gets while I game for too long, or did I ruined the battery with the games and endless recharge mode?
I don't know,I don't really wanna lose it,so I decided to change the battery ,I hope it will work.
My M5 is still in warranty,but I can't give it to Sony and wait for weeks or months to get it back...Hell,I can't skip a day in my game without suffering loses.
So I really hope the battery change will help, otherwise I will have to say Goodbye permanently to Sony and move to Samsung,hoping for better phone life longevity there.
As price to parameters is great....But I really hope it has more life in it than one year.
Do not ever but it under a tap or submerged in a water, it will be damaged. My M5 was felt in a water for second and damaged (need screen and motherboard to repair and out of the warranty).Sony is a big fake
Not waterproof! Water resistant it is! But waterproofing is a Sony scam
Is IP68 but do not submerge in water!! lol

I have this phone for six months now and i must say that it is great! It doesn't show any lag and I have been pushing it real hard with games and various apps... Batery life is somewhat lacking especially if you are a heavy user like me. Both cameras are great and I bleave you won't find better in these price segment. Also water resistance came in handy when a friebd accidentally spilled bier all over the phone.
Burst mode on Xperia M5 shots about 4 frames per second, whereas the Xperia Z burst mode shots about 10 frames per second.
