i've been using it for 6 months and its for no doubt one of the worst mobile phones i've ever had in my whole life (bad communication (wifi &bluetooth)-freezing screen (not much but it happened about 5 times)-touch screen some times doesn't respond-finger prints all over it specially with the black color.
randz, 28 Jan 2017Yes. The autoshutdown is fixed when upgraded to marshmallow 6.0, wayback from the default loll... morerandom Auto shutdown still the issue with my sony M5 dual and wont power on without plugging it to charger.
, the phone as been to service centre 4 times, each time replacing PCB and still the issue persist. still waiting for a official statement from sony 'why they are not able to repair" and at least they should accept their manufacturing fault with M5 dual
I've been using this phone for months now. So far, no problem whatsoever. I don't know why other are suffering problems with this phone. By far, this this the best phone i have. Battery lasts up to 3 days with moderate use. 4 days qith stamina mode. Only heats up when using mobile data. If yours heats up too much, you can safely put it in a glass of iced water. It's waterproof, dont worry.
I've been using this phone for almost 6 months.The problem is the touch screen hanging up I experienced in many times when your turning ON your phone and you need to removed your SIM to be able to restart your phone. I hope the Sony able to solve this issue when you update the phone. And also the back camera have problem for autofocus it takes time. But the specs for this phone is good.
Xperia M5 Dump Item .. Put it trash . too much problem .. if u want know . just buying it one .. Lol

Look at any other phone with the same chipset and same version of Android (HTC One X9/E9, Meizu MX5, Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 to name a few), none of them have this issue.
Rupak, 28 Mar 2017I don't know why so many people have issues with this phone. I am using this phone since last ... moreProbably because you bought the phone in the last six months instead of the first six months after the phone was first released. This is the worst phone I've ever used, let alone Sony Phone (Z3, Z1 before that). Burns through the battery in 5-8 hours, no matter how little you use it. Leave it on overnight and not charging and it will be empty in the morning. I really, really hated this phone, even though it did take great photos and videos. Ended up giving it to my 7 year old son to use and abuse.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2017Storage phone to small.always give notification not enough memory space. When update firmware,... moreThe same apply to me, I wonder if I can expend the 16GB to 32GB, or any suggestion instead of uninstall applications.
Plan to move on for a 64GB with SD card slot so that I can have more rooms for some of the handphone games.
Cee Jay, 18 Mar 2017Does it support quick charger feature?Normal charging is fast enough
Good phone, stunning camera, no competitor in other brand in selfi with this price, Primary camera quality is awesome, best phone in this price. No reboot issue, no heating issue, phone is very fast, rarely get hang. I've been using this phone since 1 year no battery issue.
Obviously you cannot compare battery of this phone with basic phone, as they are not multitasked, but these phones are running multiple thread at a time, which eats more battery, you should use phone wisely and restrict number of process running in background, if not no android phone/ multitask phone will give long battery runtime.
Not good phone for its price.Battery drain fast, overheating, not better back camera as described.I gave it back after using several days.Not recommended.

Bad Boy heh, 31 Jan 2017J7 prime or xperia m5? Please answerIphone 7plus
I don't know why so many people have issues with this phone. I am using this phone since last 6 months but never faced any major issues. Never faced auto shut-down issue. Heating issue is there but its common in all the waterproof phones. Temperatures upto 55 degrees are completely ok. I suggest you use 'Greenify' to keep you device fast and cool. Both front and back camera is top class. Looks are rich. The only issue I face with this device is that sometimes its camera doesn't autofocus. But it gets fixed if you click a random click.|
If you are looking for a small 5 inch screen phone with good features then this a perfect companion for you.
