Day by day, I really don't get why people give negative comments and reviews about this great super mid-ranger! From my experience so far after about 2 months since my last purchase back in August 2016, this phone is impressive and great in any other way. The FHD 1080p display is awesome plus, there are image enhancements, the phone is a 5-incher, so it is the ideal size for me(5.5 inch is a bit too big), waterproof? Yes, at least it can withstand a dunk in the toilet and from sudden rain showers. Performance is smooth as the flagships and heating issues? not much just a bit warm but, not too hot which makes it explode! but, NO! It does not explode, Haha! Decent solid battery life which now, it can be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow which boosts the battery life to double and with that, I can get the 2 days of power Sony claims with "normal" usage of about 3-4 hours of screen-on time, just. The cameras? Just DOPE! 21.5MP main and 13MP selfies? Its a great enough camera for daily snaps of everyday life! Really, this phone is sooo awesome and rare as the price tag of about 300 pounds or RM1600(note that I am from Malaysia) with near flagship specs is hard to find these days as phones are just overpriced now. So, really don't get the negativity received for this phone. No such issues and lags and you guys should really think before you review or comment about something. Truly it is the best phone right now in its price! Bravo Sony! Keep making great phones with a reasonable price. END

O2 shop who sold it to me won't replace it. They claim to be unaware there is a problem with this phone.

I am looking at this page from my Sony M5 and I just can't believe the stuff I read here. It is amazing phone. It,s fast, camera is great, battery drains really slowly, it can last at least 12h(and i'm using this phone a lot it's always in my hands) but it also charges slower than my last phone but they told me it is better to drains slow and charges slow than to drains fast and charges fast. About heating, yeah it heats a little (depends what are you doing) but it's a waterproof phone people, it's harder for them to cool down. The only bug I experienced so far is that sometimes when I want to turn on camera it says that some other app is using camera so I have to restart it. But, this phone turns off/on really fast so I don't care. Anyway, I love this phone endlessly.
All negative comments was true. I was disappointed too with the SONY M5. It only last a week then I sent it to service center due to shutting down. Mother board and battery needs to replace. How come sony released phone without checking if the parts works really well. Can't believe I buy a damaged phone the worst part of that is it came from sony.
I do not understand people complaining about this phone. It works great for me. I used to have my Note 3 and I was very happy with its performances. ANTuTu benchmark on my Note 3 was about 45..., and now on my Sony M5 IS ABOUT 55....
Sony obviously has some limitations on their phone modifications. Who knows what you guys are doing to your phones before you start complaining. None of your complains apply to my Sony M5.
Find me another $300 phone with 2.00 GHz octa core processor and 3 Gb of RAM.
I bought my m5 almost 5months ago and first time when i sent it back was for display issue, they gave me new phone. With second one i had power off issue then i sent it back twice for this issue and second time gave me new one,which is made 27 week of 2016 ye and finally i am really happy with this phone...
This phone has so many error
power off more time and suddely shutdown
