Sony M5 Dual has below 2 issues :
1: Automatically shuts down and will not start until connected to a charger... it is getting me crazy... If anyone has a solution for this then please post...
2: If you lock the screen, the WI-FI stops working then unlock the screen and it starts working. that means you will not get any whatsapp msgs, emails when the phone is locked.
It is a cheap phone at a price range of Rs. 30,000
I use My Sony M5 in 6 month and It has no any problem yet. I like Sony Very Much.

Im sure i am on latest which i updated a week ago.
You from sony?
I updated my phone 2 times and each time after updating the first starting up takes really long (for several hours). I tried to repair it using the Sony Companion software and again after repair because everything is getting new and I think it's a similar process to update the first start up is taking REALLY long (it's been more than 24 hours so far!!). Anyone had and experience like this? Is this normal??
I update my phone at 15 th march but the problem of auto shut down i give it to sony gallery
Now any new update is given or not
coyackz , 21 Mar 2016Why m5 always heating when I use data connection? Please answer my problem!!!! Thanks!!!!!! In low signal area the phone need extra power to gather all the signal that cause the extra heat. Try to move to another area which has better signal or change your telco which suit your area.
Bought new sony xperia m5 in mumbai on 15th of march .
Started facing auto shutdown issue same day, after going back and forth with the service centre they agreed to sort it.
On 19th Isubmitted the phone at sony service centre where thestaff doesnt have any knowledge of the phone, the technician returned the phone on monday after "updating" the phone.i told the fellow that i had updated it myself, so what had he done but he did not respond and coolly left. Phone again started auto shutdown and charging time taking upwards of 4 hrs!!
After shouting at the service centre and demanding a replacement they took me seriously and kept phone for two more days, and returned same phone regardless of company policy of replacing handset if phone has physical defects within 7 days of buying, stating battery has been changed. Now phone doesn't auto shutdown but it heats up a lot using minor apps.
Now I'm stuck with this handset and with the wisdom of never buying sony products in the future because of their cheap quality products and bad after sales service.
These multinational giants are taking the consumer too lightly. Do not play with the consumers time and money.
As for you, my wise friends, you have been warned. Avoid this phone like the plague.
