I think the shutdown thing has to do something with the processor.. I think xperia m5 needs to have sort of a cooling system or app..
i bought M5 dual three weeks ago while i was on vacation outside, i connected my device to PC and the Sony PC Companion prompt me for update,the device came with Android 5.0 the update was to 5.1.1 So the PC Companion completed downloading and asked me to connect my device,i did,it started to upload the update,then a message popup saying that an error occured,would you like to try again,i clicked yes,it started again and when reach the middle of the update,my device turned off and since then my device turned to a dead phone,it does not work anymore,it can not turn on the device.i paid $450 for using this device for two days only.i tried every suggestion in the internet,nothing works.
There is no Sony Dealer in my country,so i can not send it to them,also i bought the device from outside my country and i can not travel there just to repair it.I went to good repair centre here to fix it,but it did not work,even they tried to fix it via Flash&boot Box,the device is completely dead. the Only thing is working is the charging light and it is always red even the battery is full.For three weeks till this moment am looking for somebody travelling to bring it to Sony dealler to fix it,but from the problems i have read here,it seems that this device is a defect but nobody from Sony want to admit it.Am A sony fan,this is the first time face such issue.At the moment am using Z1,i have this device for more than 18 months,it is working perfectly.But this M5,i think there is something wrong with it.
Sony has to do something regarding these issues otherwise we will go for another brand.
16 gb internal memory is not enought. 7-8 gb memory will occupied by Android OS itself. Beside that 4k video will take more space.

raj, 01 Nov 2015Frnds tell me how is Sony xperia M5The camera is excellent but there is a serious flaw in the model with the auto shutdown issue that will drive you mad. Personally I regretted my purchase. You may check the review of others in this forum
Does anyone find that the battery drain is fast. It burn 55percent of battery on standby mode doing nth. The smart backlight seem to use more ram the more you use

The auto shutdown issue ...
I am getting frustrated with this model
I called Sony Xperia Hotline again after sending an e-mail above and their answer : Please send the replacement set to the service center for us to check. Look Mr Sony, the original phone that I purchased had the shutdown problems AND the replacement set issued to me also had the same problem. Doesn't this tell you something?
And with the many other users complaining about the same issue as evident here, must I "send the set for checking" again ? I believe you should just do a general recall of the M5 model. Perhaps it is not ready for sale yet....
I am now going to experiment with some of the solutions below re the problem for the ph shutting down and being non responsive until plugging in is a response to network coverage loss.
Sony needs to fix this issues now, this is a pathetic excuse for a brand if they don't. It is the most frustrating issue I have ever come across with a phone. I work in an office building with low signal internally and as such my phone does this 10+ times a day.
Not good enough sony! Pick up your game!
