I was away from my office for the holiday season. I did not experience any problems. Now, I'm back at my office. Shutdown problem is back. If you can, revisit the place where it shutdown and spend some time there. I'm eager to know if it will shutdown again.

bie, 30 Dec 2015I buy 2 m5. One of it keep shutdown by itself, and already send to centre last two week. Now, ... moreIt happened also to me twice, I believe that happens to new gadgets because my tablet when I got has many problems also but now after 2 years my tablet is working fine. Going back to m5 don't bring to service center if your m5 shuts down and can't turn it on just connect your charger and connect to your power outlet and then open again and you are good to go, if u install some software from google play uninstall it because what happened to me was I installed double tap app and then it shuts down automatically so i uninstalled it.
I love this phone it's perfect, great camera, great design, great performance, not big, battery good enough for one day use of playing music, taking selfie, go online, the camera is the best, the price is not that high, scratch resistant, water proof, I really love this phone, 21.5 mp rear cam and 13 mp front cam love, 2 ghz octq core and 3 gb ram its not flagship phone but it's specs is better than other flagship phone
ADAM, 30 Dec 2015My camera apps doesnt work for some reason....HOW DO I FIX IT!!!??? Go to service center with your bill.
