To any South African's. I can't confirm if it is Sony or MTN. But a friend of mine working in MTN has called me in her official capacity to inform me the M5 has been recalled and I am to return my phone. For those wondering this is actually my third M5 as I returned the previous two due to crashing. And that sort of thing. Having to Jumpstart the phone 20 times a day sort of thing. The one phone I got had not even been pressure tested properly as the phone was not IP68 resistant out the box. The frame of the phone had not even been stuck on properly.
I'm using these phone. sometimes you'll find it hard opening the phone if it stop. you have to use a charger connect it and then you can open. What is the problem there at. Can these be replaced or repaired. What if these happens on the field where in you don't have charger.
I bought the Sony Experia M5 aqua and I have the problems with with the phone, it switches off every time, it get stuck every you try to answer a call. The Cell C network will go away everytime. Can anyone help and Cell C is saying that I should have returned the phone after seven days. Please help and for those who want to buy it please Don't there's so many problem with that device.

raghu , 20 Jan 2016Frnd. I want to buy m5. Tell me the problem about that phone I am using it, it shuts down on its own and in order to switch it on u have to plug in the charger or usb cable from ur pc. I bought this phone on the 29 December 2015. On sat I am returning it for repairs. Furthermore, u will charge the battery everyday. However, it has top features.
Everyone complains about this phone. Cell C (Network provider in South Africa) told me that they have received notification from Sony to stop selling the M5 because the first batch was faulty. Apparently Sony might even discontinue the M5 completely.
Ahmad, 19 Jan 2016Hey. I know a lot about phones but this is the first time in my life that i cant choose and i ... moreif it's the same price definitely go for z series man... where I m now, m5 is 1/4 cheaper than z4 or z3+ with limited warranty... top spec phones are always better than mid range m series dude...
abdou31013, 19 Jan 2016shoud i buy M5 or not plz tell me..!! thanks u ;) yes the center says those that encounter shut down problem had their phone batteries tested and replaced and never came back. guys just go fix the phone... it's inconvenient and takes one to two weeks but it's worth it as it's still a good phone.
regarding the auto shutdown issue, just send in the phone to sony service centre ASAP before warranty ends... standard protocol takes 1 to 2 weeks...
i was told replace battery would solve the issue. i was lucky 'cos they had the replacement so i got my phone back the next day. hopefully this time the problem will not resurface.
abdou31013, 19 Jan 2016shoud i buy M5 or not plz tell me..!! thanks u ;) Buy any of Z series instead of this...
Hey. I know a lot about phones but this is the first time in my life that i cant choose and i cant tell which one is better.
Planning to buy sony m5 or sony z3+(z4)
Price is the same.
I want to gift it to my sibling but im not really sure which one is better.. they both are great but since i have never owned z3+ or m5 but other sony's phones, i cant tell plusses and minuses to these phones.
Which one? M5 or z3+?
Really,this is the worst nightmare av had with Sony m5,been using the Z series but had no any related issues,but with M5 been a disappointment....... On n off suddenly unless been boosted on a charger irregardless of the percentage.... Sony centre what's up with Sony m5?!!!...i too regret on its use.....
