I bought mine last year by the month of December(2015). I experienced auto-shutdown problem after 3 days of using it. That's the time I searched for problems/bugs about the phone. I didn't bother going to SC because of what I already read. What I did is, follow the instructions given by the users. By using GSM only. Its irritating that I can't use fast connection via LTE. When the update was released.. until now, I didn't download the update. I am scared that it may cause more problems. What were the specific fixes of the update? Any reports about the main issue of the phone? or maybe I'll wait till the Marshmallow update releases. Hopefully this year also. I'm from Philippines.

guys I planned to buy Sony Xperia m5
so please suggest me that it's a better phone or not....???
Bought this phone 27th September 2015. Was really happy with it's specs however withing 10 days the phone got dead. On 14th October, I got a replacement phone after making a complaint but again after couple of months the phone started giving the mentioned problems:
1. Microphone does not work when it's on speaker mode.
2. Stop reading the SD card
4. Heating problems
5. The major problem that I started facing with this phone is auto switch off. It get's switched off on it's own and you cannot switch it no unless the charger is plugged in even if the battery is more that 80% charged.
The phone is sitting with the service center and they are claiming to resolve the issue soon.

Won't connect automatically to my WiFi network. I have to connect manually everytime I walk out of the door and comeback. The phone's network setting is connect automatically, but it won't.
Battery life sucks too. Operation is also very slow for an octacore phone.
Not satisfied at all.
No gyroscope sensor for this expensive phone. OMG! How about my VR Box, Sony?

I got my M5 a week ago. The battery is fine and I haven't had any problems of it switching off by it self. I am having trouble with my wi-fi connectivity. It doesn't connect automatically to recognised wi-fi networks and sometimes I have to restart the device several times before it connects. Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone know how I can fix it?

AnonD-483643, 20 Feb 2016I'm about to buy this phone. Can I have you guys (the users) opinions??can i get explame ...what u wanna know about this??
Problem solved!! Just kidding .I didn't solved it,but i found a way to overcome the auto shutdown.just active your airplane mode when ever you move aroun,and only deactivate your AP mode when you use the phone.autoSD is caused by the changing of network,so just remove the network from the equation.but still,battery drain is the biggest issue.
