Anonymous, 06 Dec 2016My m5 is already update android 6.0...but auto shutdown still problemafter you update. you have to backup your things and factory reset your phone.
Got this phone week ago. Running smoothly. Only sad thing that it will not get Nougat update. Rear camera is quite good, front camera amazing, ram performance good, no randomly shut downs or anything like that, battery holds up for day even with extremely using phone. For mid range you could not get anything better, so this is my high recommendation, go for Sony M5.
I've had M5 since june and it has so far been my worst experience with technology in my whole life. Might be that there is something wrong with the hardware itself (haven't found out what if thats the case).. I'm guessing its the software. The xperia companion is useless! The newest update destroyed my phone and I cant get to any! of mye stored data. Anything that isn't saved to my computer is lost...
ishara, 18 Nov 2016this phone good or bad ???? please tell me Goooooooooood
i want to buy this phone but i'm having a second thought beacause of bad reviews.
sony support said that they fixed the autoshowdown.
should i still buy this phone?
Today that device cost't about 400 euro's in Bulgaria!400 euro's for a MediaTec powered device???You must be joking SONY!!!WAKE UP!I was behind the SONY and SONY ERICSSON name's for about last 20 years,byt now.....You just missed the road SONY!I have Xperia Z1 in my hands right now,a verry powerfull device,but i'm stuck on OS of 2014y and why?I see today a LG,Lenovo and a lot more piece's of 5h1t gettin'g Android 6x and even 7x,come on...You just have forgot us Sony,us the reggular buyer...Guud luck with the SUPER tamagochi's that you r rolling out today,i'm no more using that garbage!!!
Only problem i had is the random extreme heating which lasts for 5 min and then cools down again. It doesn't affect any performance. Thus far i love this phone. Damn good pictures especially High Speed Capture.
Problem solved for automatic shutdown! me and my 2 friends bought m5 and experienced autoshutdowns. Just upgrade lollipop to marshmallow 6.0. after upgrading you wont experience any autoshutdowns anymore. additional ultra stamina mode is also added to your phone after the upgrading.
Vandal2211, 31 Oct 2016Bought it for just around 3 months ago .bought this phone specifically for its camera due to i... moreTo link M5 to your PC you need to enable the USB in the setting of the phone.
Have had my M5 now for a couple of months, haven't had any problems with it. I must be one of the lucky few.
have problem with unexpected shurt down, poor network reception, loss of imei.. often.
only two months old, i have to buy another phone, very dissapointed! seller says cant help anymore after several attempts
Using this phone for months. Very unreliable as when it looses network signal it switches off, then have to plug in charger to switch it on again. Did soft repair,no fix. Reset phone and software, no fix. Upgraded to marshmello, no fix. Contacted sony support via call, they couldnt assist. Good spec phone but very unreliable.
Terrible experience with this phone. Random shut downs are a pain in the neck. Its slick otherwise & the specs are great for the money, but the shut down issue is a turn off. Have to carry a power bank at all times. Don't buy.
its a very 3rd grade lower quality phone.its battery backup is very vad,and auto shut down problem when using 4g
