For everyone having this 'overheating' and 'battery drain' problem, the fix I did is to turn off the 'Location Services' from the settings. After that, no further problem occured and my battery can no last for 1 day of light to medium light LTE or wifi surfing/gaming.
I freaking love the frontcam 👍
Mashhood khattak, 13 Apr 2016i have no experience of m5 but i m user of z seris z sers is ultimateOverheat problem
Auto-rotate button just got lost! I can see it in the list of quick settings, but it has disappeared in the actual list to ON/OFF those buttons. So I can change rotation for my phone.
Am having the exact same issue with the phone now..is really bad, especially in an emergency situation where you REALLY NEED TO USE THE PHONE..
Having major regrets with using this phone, and have been disconnected with everyone because of auto shutdown issues, my recommendation...JUST DON'T BUY IT!!!!

My dad bought Sony Experia from Saudi Arabia last April 14, 2016.
At first I was a amazed with the performance of the camera,videos and pictures but I noticed that there is overheating from the device. I was so supprised that it has been shutting down even if it is not low battery and it happened to me always.
How can I address this problem ?

Too bad SONY SC in your country have poor customer service... SONY Taiwan has acknowledge the problem that the culprit is the 1st batch of batteries...They changed the battery with the new batch.. and upgrade the software for free..
Sony M5 is a piece of junk. It has a lot of issues with this model and I send it to the service twice and send it back after three weeks without fixing. They said after testing no problem with the phone. They don't test it or they test for just 5 minutes. The phone keep shutting down all the time and the backlight keeps changing from brightness and dim all the time. Don't buy it, and don't believe the people who told you it has solution and try this and that. Sony, don't know how to fix this issue.
