Please don't! I just bought it yesterday and the battery is faulty and I am now worrying on how many weeks or months before I could resolve my problem... They won't give a replacement item after THEY have finished tweaking my phone. They won't even give me a refund. They even won't exchange it for another unit that has the same price so I am stuck in waiting for weeks or months...
Hi .....I was thinking of buying M5 .....so what are the defect in it....plz tell me.

Have this phone and is working pretty nice. Dont believe on the trolls here.
The ear speaker on my Sony M5 just stopped working. If I'm on a call. I can't hear the person on the other end. The phone is only 5 months old. I sent the phone back to the store and they had to escalate the problem. I'm so disappointed in Sony. Now I have to wait for 2 weeks while they try to fix the problem. I think I will switch to a different brand. I'm not the only one that has experienced a problem with the ear speaker on a Sony phone.
For m5 users who updated their devices to Android 6.0 try to go to mobile network and choose Lte only for network connection. I tried it and it worked. No more shutdown.

The phone would overheat and shut down after a few minutes usage.
Absolute rubbish. Shuts down all the time and will not restart without charger. An expensive annoying phone that is completely useless. I am so put off SONY for the lack of recall to fix this terrible device.
I really like the spec for this phone but i heard some bad things about it and the biggest worry is about auto shutdown problem can anyone tell me should or should i not buy this phone, before this i had a sony phone and i was amazed by it's durability and quality
I have had 2 faulty Sony M5's returned. I would just switch off and won't power up again. It seems to have been discontinued in South Africa. Great camera, my previous Sony M2 Aqua was superb compared to its follower!
i went already to the local xperia support you have here in the philippines that's the first thing i've done so that i will know if sony can do something about it. unfortunately they cannot repair my sony xperia m5 since they only realease dual sim here in the philippines. my sony xperia m5 is single nano sim. that's why they cannot repair my sony m5. im very disappointed. i just bought it and it only last for six month now i cannot use it. now what do you want me to do just throw my sony xperia m5 and put my money into waste. first 3 months i have a problem already with the battery now after 3 months, i cannot use it anymore. totally shutdown. hope could do something about this.
I love this phone so much. I have it for more than a month now. I don't have any problems. My dad has an old Sony phone he bought it 4 years ago and it still works! Before this phone I had Samsung and I will never have Samsung in my life! So I decided to buy Sony and it's fing amazing! Fast, great camera, battery is okay (better than Samsung phones 10x), it is waterproof, it's a perfect phone for that price, too good
I'm very.. very.. very.. disapponted with this series. The advertisement was so good. They told us about that smartphone could be "swim" in depth 1.5 and 30 minutes, but the fact is the water fill the phone and phhhuuffff... So, i took it to Sony Center to fix the problem. I waited for almost a month and still found problems, the touchscreen can't use normally. I sent it to Sony Center again, and wait about 40 days. But I found my phone not 100% fixed. I surrendered with this situation. So I suggest you all not to buy Sony smartphone product.

I ordered a Sony Xpedia M5 from DWI 3mths ago it arrived by courier I unpacked it a nice looking phone, I put it on charge and fitted the sim, turning it on I found the battery flat.
I contacted DWI it was returned they sent back a new phone so I fitted the sim after charging but it kept telling me it couldn't find a signal. So I took it to a Telstra store in Wanneroo Western Australia the manager determined the phone only has wifi capabilities. I brought it home and contacted DWI they said send it back. I can't be bothered it has cost me 2 days wages running around.
I will never buy another SONY product
