hi this is Dk.
Please do not buy m5.
Reason 1: known issues like overheating and shutdown.
this is critical, why would you wanna get the phone which you cant use due to shutdown?
even if you change your battery it will still get overheat and fast draining.
dont believe the positive comments, looks like sony`s part timer.
well, if u apply my solution on the phone, you will be able to use the m5.
but why would you buy such a problem with your money? some would say 'Hey, its Sony'
yeah its Sonys product, which has performance like a cheap chinese Phone.
Reason2: Sony, never announced their stance for the shutdown.
yes, sony is famous for being lier and doing tricks to the customers.
you can find those experiences from the comments here.
Reason 3: Sony provides the slowest update for andorid.
like if nexus gets updated, after 3month you would get update from sony.
I dont wanna get my phone updated to the old version when new version out.
what is the better phone to buy..? Sony Xperia C5 Ultra or Sony Xperia M5. PLEASE HELP ME GUYS

Please advise, shall i buy M5. Because i heard M5 is going to stop production due to overheating and unexpected shut down problems?
what RAM is reported on your system. Mine reported total ram of 2.53Gb not 3Gb as advertised. I am talking total, not available.

problems with the sony xperiaM5. when it goes on sleepmode. cant turn the phone one again. must use a charger to start it again, regardless of the fact that the battery is fully charge. hear form a lot of people that they have the some problem. so my phone is more off than on. when I dont have access tot a charger --- I am stuck with a phone that is useless. this is my second sony experia m5 this year -- the same trouble everytime. what is sony going to do about this problem. not happy.
My M5 but takes way too long (about 5 hours) to charge to 100% and battery drains pretty fast too.

See this. I just brought up from my old comment.
Hey guys! Ive found a solution for random/auto shutdown problem for bullshitting m5
Ive been trying to solve the matter 3months so far as non technician, had to test few things.
It happens in certain mobile carrier in certain area.
In Australia, With telstra is fine, but with optus and vodafone was the problem when signal goes bad. And the optus and vodafone were in the same network frequency for 3g wcdma 900mhz.
For that 900mhz, even with other phones it gets overheat with bad signal i thought the frequency band is in congestion.
So i decided to turn it off the reception of the 900frequency and it turned out as working.
Ok guys here ya go the solution
Open the Dialpad
Engineermode> in the telephony tap, band mode> tick off wcdma 900 mhz> press set button.
Some said its battery problem but i dont believe them. I read the xda forum and it was irrelevant information.
Again, dont forget not to buy SONY product. Obviously they havent tested phone and did let you buy.
I will be turned back from sony forever from now. Good bye dirty doggy sony!Idiots
####Update for my solution.####
I just got to south korea
My phone turned off
This time was because of 4g lte.
Those who have shutting down problem on lte, follow my instructions and
Tick off lte band 8 aswell.
AnonD-525493, 12 Apr 2016I,m Sorry but it,s not SONY problem if your carier has bad network if you bay Lamborgini and t... moreSony is not a Lamborgini.
They officially claimed to be 3rd phone manufacturer following samsung and apple.
And while all the others work great with the same carrier, why only sony is doing the bad job as 3rd grade phone. Even Chinese phones work normally in the same network.
Get out of fantasy for sony plz
stew peed, 11 Apr 2016thanks Dk, i tried your solution and is working so far..hope this would totally solve the prob... moreI,m Sorry but it,s not SONY problem if your carier has bad network if you bay Lamborgini and the road is not good and you screw your tires is Lamborgini bad?
Umesh, 11 Apr 2016Hi guys i brought the M5 a few days ago, my phone takes approximately 5+ hours to full charge ... morejust bring your phone to sony service center, if you buy brand new M5 not a second phone, it still covered by warranty.. so it's free
bought xperia M5 March 27, 2016. It went off Arpil 8, 2016. I thought it was only lowbat so I charged it for 5 hours when I turn it on, nothing happen, phone is dead. I went to the sonny store, they told me that they have a problem like this on the first batch, but mine is not from first batch. So there is a problem on this kind of unit. Pls sonny donÂ’t sell defective CP.
Dear users which phone will be better m5 or z3+ based on performance and camera..
