I do have issue with the battery and the phone overheats even with slight usage. I did change my battery, so far it is okay but the overheating problem still exists. Now, new problem arise. everytime I make a call, the screen goes black, I cant even see the off call button on the screen!! Plus, I am not able to hear my audio note (whatsapp) through loudspeaker, I need to hear it from the call speaker. I am very2 disappointed despite the fact that I loveeee the camera.
This phone Sucks I got it in AUGUST of this year and I already had to replace it 3 times that's 1 phone a month lucky my service provider acknowledges that the phone sucks and they replace it and extends my warranty so as long as the phone sucks and exist I will have one LOL

Shoaib , 31 Oct 2016After updating my sony m5 phone I'm again facing the auto shutdown problem what can I do pleas... moreChoose Lte only on preferred network. Go to settings,more,mobile network then choose Lte only or GSM only. It will fix the problem
my sonny also do the shut down when i put it in my pocket what might be the problem
Have this for 7 months now. Love it. Had the shutdown issue but that can be fixed by altering the bandwiths, there's video's on youtube about it. You dial a certain number to go into the engineering mode and you turn off the lower bandwiths, simple fix. The camera does tend to lag a little but its not much of a issue for me considering it's that good.

Austin, 29 Oct 2016Hi .....I was thinking of buying M5 .....so what are the defect in it....plz tell me. I am also thinking to buy that phone bro :) A friend of mine bought M5 a few weeks ago, and as he told me he was very very AMAZED with his Sony M5 !
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...

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.
