I switched to WCDMA only a week ago and it looks like it's going to stick. The phone hasn't shut down in 6 days. So I'm going to settle for this until an update arrives. But I'm still very much considering selling it and buying a Z3 instead. I'll give it a few more months.
why i don,t know .because the phone is very nice and very attractive thank you for this

what to do?? help1!!
bought my M5 last October 16. after 3days, my phone automatically shuts down and won't open unless i recharge it again. and then would have to fix the whole settings again! after 3days of continuous shutting down on its own (its like it became a hobby!) i finally decided to go back to the store where i bought it. requested for a change unit. the store manager was accomodating though. they emailed Sony about my complain and requested for a new unit. after a week of waiting. I got the new unit. but after A WEEK. same old problem! shutting down for 2days now. and more than twice a day. it is so frustrating!! I wanna cancel this order if possible!
what to do???

Hi All !!
Today i got back my phone from Sony Service Center. It was 31 days to claim my warranty. Sony has replace my Main Board due the shutdown issue (it mean new IMEI will get). Now im buying 32 gb micro sd card and will use it as my daily phone. Any problem will inform here. I dont know what to say after 31 days BUT now i can smile again lol.
Niko, 01 Nov 2015Sony service center will replace sony xperia m5 units that experiences automatic shutdown. Jus... moreYes im experiencing automatic shutdown w/ my M5 unit and you have to connect to charger to turn it on. Dates and time went delayed for a while and normalize but shut down again.
Xperia lovers, 06 Nov 2015The phone you buy from where?I bought it in early oct,ori sony waranty from a phone shop in k.dmnsara,my assumption of the shutdown issue is that sony is not familiar n still hving prob to optimise the helio chipset n thus the system may be running on the higher side of temp that triggers the shutdown,in stamina mode i ticked the extended usage n a few more to reduce performnce,n so far extensive usage of ggle maps make the phone heaty but never lead to a shutdown.
wow!after reading all the -ve comment,I'm quite lucky to hv a working m5 with no major prob,only had sd card unmount by itself once in a while but apart from that no issue with shutdown or anything like that,its been a month of use,n coming from xiaomi mi4 n mi4i,m5 camera has really good autofocus speed n resolution details,but the superior auto can only be set at the higher resolution whereelse the z5 families u can toned down the megapixels,so u need big sd card to cater for the big photo size.battery life using stamina mode can last me 3 days,btw im from m'sia.

Just concern fan, 05 Nov 2015So guys.. i need your advise.. should i go to M5 Dual or C5 Ultra Dual or Z5 premium (Still sh... moredefinitely not M5, and the rest depends on your budget, Z5 is a great phone but if you dont need a huge cpu and ram capacity, better to go for C5 since it's way cheaper ( almost half price)
So guys.. i need your advise.. should i go to M5 Dual or C5 Ultra Dual or Z5 premium (Still shipping to Malaysia) or other phone (Sony Brand).. Thanks..
