I only used it for 3 weeks. Then it goes something wrong. The screen was moves itself, got some stripes, and turned into mosaic. So i brought it to Xperia centre in my town. After a month it "hospitalized" i ask them again, the answer is they still wait for new machine reservation, because the machine should be changed. But they don't give me time estimated. It's been a month in service centre, but i only used it for 3 weeks. It so sad
Is xperia m5 is good phone suggest me

Please tell me if any demerits and suggest me an good model instead of this..

I received my 2nd SONY XPEDIA today the first would not charge so after some drama I sent it back, a replacement phone was sent so not being electronic savvy I took it to a mate at a Telstra shop he went through the menu to find the phone! is a Wi-Fi activated tablet, so tomorrow its on the phone to get some satisfaction. a total waste of time'
Great cameras! Great performance! Crystal clear screen! Only problem I could think of is the battery, 2600mah is never enough for a power hungry phone like this.
I'm an average user (youtube, chrome browsing, social apps, whatsapp and the like).
My m5 is not having a fully charged battery. It stops charging below 100%. What will i do.
M5 User, 06 Oct 2016This is a complete waste of MONEY!! Please DO NOT PURCHASE IT!! My phone goes on and off rep... moreCouldn't agree more! Sony's standards have dropped significantly. I will never again purchase any Sony products. After 9 months my phone died and is irrepairable. Do not buy M4 Aqua as well. After this experience I would be scared to buy any Sony product. Going to try Samsung or Huawei

Screen security issue: It is recommended to factory reset your phone after Marshmallow update.
For more bugs and fixes you can visit XDA forums.
Alright. Now about problems.
It's battery sucks. Can barely hold 2 days while in STAMINA mode and not in use.
Marshmallow update reduced the heating problem, but it's still present.
Time that it takes to connect to wi-fi is still slow in Marshmallow as for most devices.
Camera might be high in megapixels, but the detail of photos is not.
There might be others, but I either forgot to mention them or simply didn't found any.
Besides there are no custom ROMs for this phone.
Overall the phone is good. I got a MOTO X PLAY ,but before I got it I thought to sell my M5 when X PLAY arrives. It turned out that I want to sell MOTO X as it's too big to hold it in one hand. Therefore M5 is better in size of screen. And on top of that it has one-handed keyboard which is missing from so many 5"+ devices. One thing that I love abot it is that it's still waterproof with charging port being open while most of other XPERIA's not.
It has it's own advantages and disadvantages as every phone does so it's more of a choice which of them you you want.
I really had a hard time having this phone,
-Went to sony to replace battery and mother board.. 1 month
2. MARSHMALLOW update!!
Never update if you don't want your memory card corrupted + no screen security.. The hell!!
Up until now, no update.. Better buy other brand such as Samsung, Oppo, etc..
Planning to upgrade to S7 Sony.. Shit this company that's why they are deteriorating..
Been using this phone for few months now. For a mid range phone, it really is a great phone IMO. So far, i've no complaints with this phone.
I usually take underwater photos and videos (which i often brags about :-P)
4k videos... I seldom record more than 15 minutes, so i havent came across overheating (yet)
Battery, usually it lasts me around 12hrs (my normal use. Whatsapp and browsing mostly). If i use it with smartwatch, it usually wont pass 10hrs.
With stamina mode, I can get around 18hrs.
So, IMO..it's worth buying.
This is a complete waste of MONEY!!
Please DO NOT PURCHASE IT!!
My phone goes on and off repeatedly and hangs half of the time.This started when it was only 2 weeks old!!!
Do not purchase, this phone failed. My phone purchased before 6 month. Now that does not work :( I think this is not a water resistant phone, the rain water Harmful for my phone
Damn.....always negativity...either people are buying fake phone or are just critical....which then is tha best phone in the market
? ? we cant all buy iPhones for crying out loud!
Bad BAd experiences, it keeps shutting down for no reason as it doesnt have battery. You plug the charger and even the red led lights, the you press power to turn it on ad it has charve sometimes happens even with 70% charge, made all kind of resets still having the issue.
Worst phone ever!!!! front camera went down first, then the rear cam, then the board. Don't think about purchasing it. Worst and worst
