Work order : PGW76480 & 76459
Bought 2 units of Sony M5 mobile phone.
3 weeks later, both units sudden shut down, can't on back, can't do anything - sent to Sony- changed mother board
2-3 weeks later, both units same problem again - sent back to Sony again - changed whole battery.
5 weeks later, happened again, this time screen turned dark, phone still working but can't see anything at all, can't off or on because the screen is dark - sent back to Sony again - changed mother board, battery and screen
Today, 26/4/16, same thing happens again, dark screen. Sony, are you kidding me ?
If you don't know about mobile phone, don't sell !
I dare not even try your other products like TV, DSLR or whatever Sony products.
Total disappointment about Sony
alex, 29 Apr 2016it is also happening to me :( i thought i was the only one suffer like thisMine doing exactly the same turns off even if fully charged can only be turned back on while connected to charger very frustrating
AnonD-529604, 23 Apr 2016Hi. i have the same problem about M5 it is just shutting down and so long to turn it back on. ... moreTry to ask SONY service center to just change the battery...my m5 doesn't shutdown for 2 weeks now
careful with z3 and z3c, some phones have real GPS fix issues! and using the micro usb to charge makes the flaps loose and open for leaks underwater. pls review...

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.
