Bad phone! My bf's bought one and after 9 days it kept shutting down, he had to connect it to a charger to turn on again, took him a lot of trouble to get a replacement, but the replacement is worse, in just 5 days the same thing happened. The sony outlet manager said his first phone was from the second batch, the replacement from the third and admitted that the phone is defective,but now he isn't anwering his calls nor replies to his texts... I don't know which is worse, the phone or th manager. Both of them malfunctioning. Lol! It is in the contract though that units will be replaced only with the same model, then it means that even if it is replaced again he will be experiencing the same inconvenience over and over. Why don't they just recall that model?
in my xperia m5 there is a little sound when focusing the front camera, is it normal or is it a fault ?
Paul, 07 Dec 2015Hello guys! I FOUND A SOLUTION FOR 4G SHUTTING OFF! I live in Russia and my wife also faced ... moreEven my M5 is having the same problem , it is not connected to either 4G or 3G. Works on 2G that too very less time & the network goes off, pls suggest the setting option of 4G.
Hi guys, i want bye this phone, can someone who have this phone tell me his experience? Is value for money money ? If i bye it i will deal with problems?
I FOUND A SOLUTION FOR 4G SHUTTING OFF!
I live in Russia and my wife also faced such a problem with selfshutting if using 4g. We found that it happens when types of connection changes (4g to EDGE or EDGE to H+ or 4G to H+ etc).
We bought this phone for about 500$ so it is strange to use only EDGE.
I was looking for a solution and found that one mobile operator has no problem in M5 with 4G. It is MTS.
I found that it happens because different mobile operators work in different LTE MHz range.
- Megafon - 2530-2540 / 2650-2660
THIS IS THE WORST CHOICE. THE M5 SHUTS OFF EVERY TIME THE SIGNAL CHANGES WITH MEGAFON SIM!!!
- Beeline (Vympelkom) - 2550-2560 / 2670-2680
M5 shuts of also but it happens less than with Megafon.
- MTS - 2540-2550 / 2660-2670
NO PROBLEM WITH 4G (LTE). NEVER SHUTS OFF.
Now it is more than 2 month with new sim and we haven't faced with shutting off problem yet!
I don't know if it helps you in your country but some people wrote that had no problems and their friends too but other countries did have problems.
Try different mobile operators! Wrtie down your reviews! Guys from SONY can't help, shame on them!
M-5ting, 21 Nov 2015It's a real problem. I'm sending this message from my buggy m5. Today I had one shutdown. I work on LG level,so i need powerbank to power on the phone once it automatically shutdown. Because This phone will automatically shutdown when it have no service for long time.

But now it coul... moreI have had this problem with other Xperia phones, try to use emergency shutdown "button" it should be under the same cover as the SIM and SD card slots. It's a little hole and you must put a pin in it... if that doesn't work contact the seller for warranty repairs...
Secrets, 13 Nov 2015Yes they are advertising, but do not have stock. Been waiting 2 weeks. No one can tell you wh... moreI'm also planning to buy the phone toward the end of this month. So I'm asking you to please post about the phones performance after you've finally bought and used it. I'm also from S.A by the way.
My phone always shutdown. Normally i could turn it on when connect to charger. But now it couldn't turn on at all. It's not even charging. I connected it to my power bank and the power bank's battery doesn't move at all even after i left it for one hour. What should i do? Any idea guys?
I have a replacement one. They said this phone is in third batch (random shutdown fixed) although they keep silent about the problem. Not so sure about it. The service is fine in Thailand. Have to wait and see. Anyone who want to buy this phone should check seller for this.
Though the phone is good, I face some issue with speaker sometimes. The mic doesn't work and sound output goes to earpiece rather than the speaker. So, I can't hear music or ringtone. When I restart the phone it becomes normal. It's v strange. I plan to take it to the service center.
I bought sony xperia m5 recently,and i am experiencing several problems exp 1) apps crashes frequently
2) battery drainout quickly
3) phone heatsup quickly
4) i cannot use camera for video recording
Later on i take it to the sony service centre,and software upgrade was done.But no use,I am still experiencing same issues,sony shold look in to the matter immediately before it becomes worse.And sony should recall xperia m5 phones and give us an opportunity to replace or upgrade to new phones.
I have a Sony Xperia M5 and I haven't any problems with it at all, it's an excellent phone recommend it over Samsung. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the phone. I got mine on contract for a really good price but I think it's way worth the initial price tag.

Front camera was working perf... moresame experience for m5, my phone is still @the service center almost 1month already 14days after i bought that .
