I'm really upset had the phone for three days and it is the first phone I have bought in three years and it blacks out when I use the flash and won't open the camera it say error then I have to restart the phone to enter the camera and it then says extreme temperature will force shut down of camera? Anyone else have this problem? ? :(

XOXO, 11 Oct 2015Wish to know Sony Xperia M5 or Huawei P8 better? I m wish to find smartphone with good camera... moreThe Sony M5 is definitely the better choice if photo quality matters to you. The P8 has a very mediocre camera, barely meets 2014 flagship standard.
Poor battery life. Had 2 sets with different issues. One set could not charge after 2 weeks, had to go back to sony and they exchanged it. Another set have sudden shutdown issues. Unable to boot unless charger is plug in. Not recommended.

Ak, 11 Oct 2015Which phone is nice m5 or z2 ?M5 (fastestest autofocus )
Sony Xperia M5 Dual.
Bought my unit at the Sony shop Hongkong. It shuts down by itself anytime without warning even with a fully charged battery.power button can't turn it back on. Have to connect the charger to turn it back on.
Had reset it and performed the re-installations of software and firmware as suggested by Sony. No solution yet. I think it's a factory defect.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2015M5 or huawei p8 or lenovo vibe shot?Wish to know Sony Xperia M5 or Huawei P8 better?
I m wish to find smartphone with good camera performance, quick shot button for camera and no obtuse problem, long lasting battery.
Does anyone know Huawei P8 have quick shot button?
Kindly leave a comment here. Thank You
I posted earlier my review about the issue of hanging and rebooting. After I uninstalled Clean Master and Greenify, my m5 hasn't been hanging for more than one day and at least while I'm using it. I also turned off the stamina mode. May be you all can give it a try if you installed these apps.
i want to buy a Sony Xperia M5 plz tell me my decision is right or wrong... if i was wrong so please help me which phone will be better in this range
I bought it about 2 week ago, first it's okay except battery life. Now the phone get overheat and hang and restart all the time.even opening camera apps get heating issue. Hate that phone. It's really disappointed.
AnonD-447559, 03 Oct 2015Me too.. i'm also got the same problem like you... my phone always hang every day when I'm usi... moreSony m5 mobile is worrest phone...this device hanging many times...brightness low and thin..photos and videos performance are bad.... I hate this
chjn, 09 Oct 2015Did you get the shutdown with your new phone? Didyou get any sony update when you bought the phone?Yes..i too face sudden shutdown from the M5 only to be start again by charging (thats the killer) ,the second issue of unable to save photos to Sd card after 1week of usage..So disppointed with Sony as i have the impression they make better at least at par other well known brands.
A real letdown
chjn, 09 Oct 2015Did you get the shutdown with your new phone? Didyou get any sony update when you bought the phone?No Shutdown problems. The current build number on my device is 30.0.b.1.23 and i did not get any updates. Apart from the cameras, i think there isn't much to talk about in this phone. Battery life is questionable and I don't think it will last even 1 day. Im thinking about exchanging this phone with a z3+. Z3+ has a bigger battery, better gpu and 32 Gb internal storage and the price difference is very little.

Anonymous, 20 Sep 2015Can someone please tell me if it has a gyroscope sensor?
Please :/No gyroscope sensor. I bought the dual sim version. Felt that battery was not upto mark. Play real racing for 30 min and battery goes down by atleast 30%.
About the GPU, felt similar to adreno 320. No stuttering during game play, but some times the frame rate drops during game intro.
1 thing to be talked about in this phone is the processor. Absolutely no heating. Played games gours together but the phone doesn't even get warm. Cameras were ok.
Totally disappointed after noticing the absence if a gyro scope. Has proximity, light sensor, accelerometer, magnetometer and orientation sensor. Just 5 sensors. Even phones worth 10k INR get more sensors. Heard that the next redme note will get the same helios x10 for ~10k INR. Tried htc phones with the same heluis x 10, but all those phones have complete sensors. Nothing missing
