I'm also with Vodacom, but would like to get a Sony phone, as I'm trying to avoid Samsung as much as I can. Was thinking of getting a Huawei P8, but there's something that draws me to Sony. My wife has had her Samsung Galaxy S4 for three years, and only now it's starting to lag a bit, still, I don't like Samsung for some reason.
You might have gotten a phone that was in a bad batch, it happens with almost every phone brand. I got myself a Nokia Lumia 900 in 2012, and a few people on gsmarena were complaining about the phone, although I had no issues with it.
This handset really sucks and I will never buy another Sony after this. I got this phone for two reasons, apparently it is fairly rugged and water resistant, and small enough to slide into my breast pocket. Also it had FM radio and a memory card slot, which some of the Samsung models don't have. Within a few days the speaker stopped working and I reloaded the factory software, after seeking advice on the internet. The speaker worked again for only one day. I returned the handset to Vodacom for repairs and it came back after an excessive 17 working days. The speaker worked for 3 days then shut down again. I discovered that all the Vodacom workshop did was reload the factory software. Back it went. Vodacom agreed to lend me a handset while mine was being repaired (a Samsung A3 that works like a dream). After two weeks in the workshop, Vodacom gave me a refund on my Sony. The other problem I had was WiFi connectivity. For some reason, the handset would not connect to certain WiFi routers. I am now going back to Samsung which is totally reliable.
Umix, 22 Jun 2016What color did you get?My xperia m5 dual has shut down after 3 hours of system update over wifi network connection.after the update it was making hang sometimes when I was using it.it is still in death.
I went to the sony customer center.they said that there is no solution known to them,sony is working about the system update problem.
What may be the solution?
Using this phone since 2 month, don't find any issues, don't know why people are putting false comments, this phone is perfect.
hims, 10 Jul 2016I am in a confusion which one to take nexus 5x or xperia m5?overall which one will be a better one?Go for 5x..
sony is very irresponsible to market this lemon-phone! they have tarnished their good-name & branding doing so & not recalling it!
Have any one tries to turn off mobile data or internet and use wifi instead. Does auto shutdown occur when you do this on xperia m5.
I bought this phone 2 days ago.I haven't experienced auto-shoutdown issue.I love it
Xperia M5 have better specs. camera(front and back), display, battery life, waterproof, just set the data to GSM and not LTE so you will not experience sudden shut down. This is a bug to the OS which I am pretty sure it will get fix on Marsmallow update.
I am in a confusion which one to take nexus 5x or xperia m5?overall which one will be a better one?
I've problem with Wi-Fi connectivity. After 5 to 6 hours the Wi-Fi connectivity is turning off automatically. Again I want to connect it manually. Also the auto-connect option is not working. Pls provide some solution to fix this issue
Is the non-removable battery a prolem?? I want to upgrade to the Sony M5 but after hearing complaints about the auto shut down I am disgusted..... I want to choose between the M5 or the Z3... I first wanted the M5 because the camera is really good. Please help ASAP!!
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2016Had the same auto-shutdown issue previously. After the Singapore Sony service center replaced ... morehow do I claim for warranty when I bought my m5 at lazada and from singapore. lazada wants me to pay the fees to fix this sony issue. :(
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2016Why picking z3 over z3+ ?Because it is brilliant phone, has enough power, better battery life, less heating issues and cheaper now.
