Sony does not have a solution. I bought mine in a Sony Store in Hongkong.. After five days I had the same problem
Many of us here in the Philippines are having the same problem of sudden shutdown of the M5 even in full battery power. Cannot even turn on with the power button. You have to connect to the power charger to turn it back on. Sony does not have any solution. This model needs a recall...
I'm planning to buy m5...are all the comments re:the frequent shutdown,true?
m5 support ant+, why doesn't this one support it !!?
ant+ is very usefull in sport and health care

My phone is in service centre since 29th September for replacement and still nothing done by serv centre. Don't know when I'll get the new handset. Facing such Hassall's after spending 35k.

just upgrade to 5.1.1 or wait for on air update ;-)I am facing the auto shutdown issue. Service center has replaced the phone but i still hv the issue. Eagery waiting to return the phone since there is delay in the s/w update too.
AlexMhae, 17 Oct 2015What update did you do? Try to update first all the sony installed apps especially Facebook, albums, music and try to install cleaning app since software update is not available yet. Also restart your unit.
Am I that lucky that I got a nice unit last week? Also, for those having battery problem, try to update sony's built in apps and to use the stamina mode to improve battery life.
Freddy143, 15 Oct 2015it just a common problem of lollipop 5.0... just upgrade to 5.1.1 or wait for on air update ;-)The update is not yet available on my country. Should I wait for the update or bring my phone to the service centre?
ash, 16 Oct 2015sood, probably a phone seller with a lot of M5 in store. you dont feel the pain simply saying ... moreAgree with you. I think Sood don't have this phone so he doesn't know what are we dealing with shutdown issue. My advice, sent to service center don't use in safe mood, its sux. let them fix. Mine have been 2 weeks without any info from the service center. Hope Sony can fixed. Otherwise this is shame and I need refund .
It's the crapiest phone one could buy the phone 1. Microphone doesn't work properly 2. Phone hangs a lot 3. IT'S an overally priced handset 4. Other phones with better features and.specs are available at cheaper price 4. It's not at all future proof 5. I am stucked with this phone as I cannot sell it with incurring the loss of atleast Rs. 10,000/- 6. It's not at all a fake review speaking out of personal experiences
Mangkuk, 15 Oct 2015i know how you feel . we are the same victims :\I am also victim!!! Bought Xperia M5 on 24/9 and send in SONY service centre on 14/9 because it shutdown and cannot on anymore! From Johor - RY :(
sood, probably a phone seller with a lot of M5 in store. you dont feel the pain simply saying others giving negative comment to this device.
