Have an M5 about 1 month old. Great phone except for the problem which started suddenly a few days ago. Phone works when plugged in and charging but dies soon after disconnecting (even though it reports 100%). Phone has just taken Android 5.1 update. Booted in safe mode. Same problem. Next thing to try is hard reset but then I have to reinstall apps. Symptom seems to me to be a failed battery. Dissappointed :-(
I finalize these comments.
Auto shutdown still exist
With Sony's latest update.
Im in Australia and the software version
And sony, never anounced autoshutdown problem officialy.
Which is so deceptive for Customers.
Even if u send it to service center,
They cant fix it
Its been Already proved by Taiwan customers.
Whatever service center saying now is just total bullshit.
This is not a battery problem, and its related with cpu chipset and sony's shitty softwares.
And the most surprising is sony had not tested properly and keeps you buying this.
Just dont buy this phone, please dont feed the cow.
I have bought this photo Sony M5 Model 5633 , I was afraid after seeing the bad reviews earlier but is realized it was not about this model or batch ( 5633) The camera and speed is good but battery is weak. If you reduce the brightness you can have more time without charging.I am been advising not to charge the phone overnight which will reduce the battery life including other phone models too.

It kinda made a little difference with the camera shutdown issue. The camera doesn't shutdown that often anymore, but it couldn't batch the battery shutdown problem and I'm getting really pissed, because my M5 shuts down about 7 times per day. I think it just got worse after the system update.
If someone has solved the problem, please tell me. @firstname.lastname@example.org (my Gmail name is kinda cringy, I know :D)
i want to buy this phone
please suggest me about the disadventage or the problem of the phone
heard that new batch solved the shutdown problem. is it true and does anybody know how to understand what batch is the phone before you buy it?
many, 22 Jan 2016Great Keith,,,have just followed your instructions and really it has worked for me,,,,,ThanksHello keith..i has follow your instruction..and yes it vibrate but not open as well..what should i do??
I want to buy a phone... There are three option on my mind oneplus x , xiomi redmi 3 or Sony M5. plz replay to me dood.........
Been using it for nearly a month...so far so good with no lagging...no shutdown problems...
It's just that the camera shutter is a bit at low speed and I have to use the Fastburst Camera to quicksnap a photo..and the battery drains quite fast as I am heavy internet user...:) ..Lucky I always bring the power bank with me all the times...
Hye guys, can I have your opinion about this phone? I about to buy it this Saturday so I really need a good feedback from the user's opinion.
Picked up a new phone after the other one was recalled but I can't download anything on this one. So I can't DO anything else except use it as a phone. I know it sounds silly.
Sammy, 22 Jan 2016I bought the Sony Experia M5 aqua and I have the problems with with the phone, it switches off... moreI was actually told the same thing Sam by Cell C. Making it as if now my phone is worthless there is nothing they can do in terms of replacing it but can only send it to Sony for repaair. Such disgusting things.
Sony writes us amazing specs about this phone and we look foward to getting only to find out that its a Scam to get us to buy kaak devices.
Am done with Sony, really
