Its been 6 months that i bought my SonyM5, it worked great in the 1st 4 months. In fact worked much better than the I Phone. However; started facing shut down issues far too often in the last couple of months had to submit the phone to the service centre and now its been 3 weeks without any resolutions. the service centre is so occupied with such requests, apparently all the M5's have the same issue. In addition to that, the service is mediocre. If I wouldn't have had a spare phone, this thing would have been very inconvenient. There is no point paying such a hefty amount, there are a lot of phones in the market with the same config or even better for a lesser price... Overall review for M5 (POOR)

Bought sony m5..few months ago...I got some issues...the battery isn't good... phone get hot much quickly...
Bought the phone, problem with switching off and not getting back on, sometimes got it on with charger, sent it in for repairs, still the same problem, they switched it for a new one, did the update and the problem started again!!! Gave it back now and await a different phone, did not want anything to do with Sony again. Previously had Sony Experia and no problems, but the M5, stay away!!!

For every one of you there's a thousand who are perfectly happy thus on balance an individual bad experience does not reflect the entirety of a Company.
never buy this phone, after buying and facing autoshutdown, sone replaced it with new one, worked for 5 days then it happens again.
there is nothing to do with this. don't buy a sony product again this is my priceless advise.
Very nice phone. Not too happy with touchscreen. Sometimes too sensitive. Waiting for android 6.

Samson5, 03 May 2016Sony Xperia M5 or Samsung Galaxy s5??? Which is better Sony is better bro
Bought an m5 6 months ago, worked only about 4 weeks during all that time. Always the same, shuts dow and it is dead. The first time sony gave me a new one, the second tine got it back a week ago repaired. Yesterday it is dead again. Forget the M5, sony seems not to be able to solve the problem, maybe it is because they are using the first time a Mediatek cpu. I will give it back, do not want it anymore....sorry sony I like your design, but in meantime I bought a LG4 for almost the same money...works fine, only draw back it is not waterproof

Did you update it to the latest software? Because M5 has some known issues before the update, after updating almost every one of them solved. According to the users all over the world of course. So, do the software update, if possible, first do a factory reset and cache delete before updating and then update.
SONY, 09 May 2016which phone i have buy ? SONY Z5 or HTC M9+ ? Make sure you have no social medias that use a camera open in the background such as Snap chat and Instagram as it conflicts the standard camera

bought it less than a month ago. auto switch off even when fully charged, downloaded "safe charge" but still does that, not recommended by me
Bought this phone less than a month back and it switches off automatically and never switches back on unless its connected to a charger. what a waste. downloaded "safe charge" but no help. I even went as far as clearing the phones' memory and memory card. Do Not Buy unless you willing to carry those portable chargers
