MB, 28 Nov 2015XPERIA M5 dual or z3plus dual what to buy plz suggestI think there are still issues with this phone. Just to be safe i think z3 would still be a better choice.

Mine also have the same issue, suddenly shut down and I have to connect the charger in order to turn it on, lagging and heating problem. But after I done the hard reset method, it works..!! Been using it for 3 weeks after the hard reset and so far no problem. Just follow the steps in the link. http://www.hardreset.info/devices/sony/sony-xperia-m5-e5653/
# third method - Install PC companion (Sony) then reinstall the firmware.

I'll test this for a 2-3 days and see if i... moreThis phone [M5] has good specs for its price, but it's useless as it keeps shutting down the first few weeks I've had it and now it won't turn on anymore. Not reliable at all for a phone. Heading to Sony Philippines soon for this issue. And also, this keeps on overheating, auto focus won't focus on the "touched" area often even on manual settings, and battery doesn't even last a day as put in the specs. Bummer.
just bought sony m5 dual about a month..Screen freezing with tiny lines and turned off. Then keep restarting and temperature of phone increase. Same things happened and repeated. Will go to sony service centre soon. Really regret buying sony and never ever buy this brand again. So regret. For the first time in my life feeling this bad after bought a handphone. Please buy another brand my friends.

I wish they had a money back guarantee even for just a week. Maybe I will just have wait for mate 8 or just consider LG G4 instead?

I'd pay for a trouble-free phone any day. You cannot imagine the trouble you need to live with the M5. On some days it's almost as good as brick.
Guys need your opinions about this one. I went to the store in manila. The guys there said they are already selling the second batch or M5s and so far theye are not getting any more complains about the camera, shutdown and heating issues. Thet said that the first batch were the problematic ones. What do you think guys?
this is definitely at bad choice. phone screen are fragile and charging port are broken.
Just wait for the next update. They will certainly fix any problem.
Finland, 23 Nov 2015I got my M5 a couple of days a go and the screen has been funky from the very first day. It ju... moreİt is obvious you are trolling. No phone can detect any touches from the other side.
My phone keeps having problem with the screen. Sometimes the screen will go crazy like i was using twitter and suddenly it open the notification bar and everything. Is this a software problem or what? will the problem be solved with a new update?
Bought it yesterday and now have a lot of problems such as sudden shutdowns, overheating and lagginess. The phone couldnt even function properly when multitasking. Is 3GB ram not enough?
LTie, 25 Nov 2015Please Guys keep us up-to-date regarding the GSM settings, if its the best solution so far. Cu... moreI buy this phone from sony centre, currently dont have any problem for over heating, lagging, auto shutdown else, i like it since it build pretty well. clear screen also not so tick, just nice in my pocket.
Please Guys keep us up-to-date regarding the GSM settings, if its the best solution so far. Currently afraid to get one due to the sudden shutdown.
