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.
I just want to ask if the otg usb of this M5 is working or not working?
Xperia m5 is a very nice phone, you'll get everything you need.I got disappointed 3 times at first, I received 2 defective phones which has a version 1 battery which is causing the auto-shutdown at places where LTE and 3G signal is low. It won't start unless you connect it with a charger/ powerbank. Most M5 units have this problem, don't replace it unless there is a green circular sticker on the box, it means the phone has a version 3 battery which will not trigger the auto-shutdown. In my case I went to Sony Centre and changed my battery to version 3 at no cost, now it works perfectly

Dk, 24 Mar 2016Hey guys! Ive found a solution for random/auto shutdown problem for bullshitting m5 Ive bee... moreHi,tried exactly what you have suggested, phone has been working like a dream for about 5 days straight now. Have tried to cause a shutdown manually but it is working great. I hope that it stays like this!
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.
