I bought this one as it released because i see that its specifications are much higher than as it expected for its price.. After I bought one with official warranty, it's really working ok the whole day. However, the next day when i wanted to change the back cover, i saw that the back lit was slightly opened, so i quickly went to service center and they made me a replacement.
Now I am using another M5 dual. There are some problems with using this one. The most annoying problem is glove touch error due to software conflicts.. When i turned on the glove touch mode, sometimes there are auto touches happened to some areas of the screen which is absolutely annoying. Another problem is speaker & microphone error as it is not working after i used many software at the same time.Therefore, i made updates from google play store & turned off that glove touch. Now, it's working quite fine.. I like its performance, resolution, selfie camera so much that's why i am with patient in using this one. By all means, it really worth for its price... :-) :-)
made the mistake of buying 2 Xperia M5's last december. Didn't last more than a week before the issues of units turning off and not able to run again without being connected to a charger.
Service for the unit takes 2 weeks. Plus you have to bring it to the main service center. Not just any service center nearby.
Anishburnwal, 13 Jan 2016guys suggest me sony m5 sony m4 aqua please i want to buy one of this phone....i am high graph... moreBro do not waste your money on this better purchase Galaxy S6 both have equal price in the market.
Amanur, Bangladesh, 07 Dec 2015How do I know that the phone is 2nd or 1st edition? Any mark there? What is the opinion of Sony?Bro.....Did u purchase this phn? I am very much interested to buy it. But after reading all the comments of different users, I am getting scared. Tell me something. I am also a BangladeshI.
I had purchased this mobile M5 on 9 Jan 2016 vide Invoice No. SLF02A011020102719 from Croma store Pune, Aundh., after using Sony mobile M5 very happily for Two years.
I think I made a mistake doing this. This mobile has major issues:
1. The battery life is being claimed to be 2 days by you. The M@ dual used to give me around 30 hours after a full charge. This one gives just about 9 or 10 HoursÂ….. ???
2. The mobile goes of for no reason unexpectedly anytime of the day or night, even when the battery has enough charge. Then the switch on button does not work. One has to connect the mobile to a charger or to a PC to switch on the mobile. This has happened around 10 + times in the last 13 days.
3. The mobile goes to one way communication, suddenly. The party cannot hear me and I can hear the party, irrespective of whether it is an incoming call or an outgoing call. And it remains this way until and unless the mobile is restarted. Real top irritant
4. One App downloaded from Playstore, Paid app, used to work well on M2. but on this it repeatedly hangs. I had sent error reports on this may times. but it continues.
Is it possible for me to return this mobile? I had an option of buying Apple and I did not, due to the good experience I had with Sony M2.
Kiambi , 21 Jan 2016Thank you very much my friend. I had really been put off by comments from others about Xperia ... moreKindly can someone clarify to me if there are different versions of Xperia m5 aqua? I read from one of us that those originating from Singapore could be more genuine than others. I am not sure if we can talk of genuine and fake versions because I haven't bought yet but I am just concerned as I decide to go for mine. I am in Kenya and have already seen this phone in our shops. Are they genuine? Please.

Kiambi , 20 Jan 2016I request you confirm to me that xperia m5 aqua dual is a good phone. I plan to buy it but was... moreThank you very much my friend. I had really been put off by comments from others about Xperia M5 aqua. I was even wondering why it had not been recalled if it's really that faulty. Sony have already confessed that Z4 is faulty and we should not buy it. They could have done the same for m5. My friend I want to go for it soonest. Is there anything else you would want me to know about it (M5)?
Heyy......I am Riyan, from Bangladesh. I am very much interested in using a Sony phone. At this, I have emphasised to purchase Sony Xperia m5 dual. Because I think it's a perfect phone for its great specifications. But meanwhile, I have read out all the comments many guys of different countries. Now I could not make out what to do. Although I have a great will to use Sony phone.....
Please, somebody give me an effective advice.
i having the same problem. just bought my M5 dual October 2015. yesterday after charging my battery, the screen suddenly turn blank. can't even turn it on until this day. sigh....
chesyapix, 20 Jan 2016yes..i am is using m5 until now it okay and no problem..I request you confirm to me that xperia m5 aqua dual is a good phone. I plan to buy it but was planning to buy a different one after reading many negative comments from those who claim to have used it. I see you are recommending it and am encouraged once again. Is it a good one? I have a lesser featured xperia L and it's a fantastic machine.
bought this last december2015. after 15day of LIGHT USE ONLY here are:
1.auto shutdown. never turns on unless u plug in the charger in the outlet
2.even with light simple touches, screen nobbles and fluctuates and scrolls its own
3.opens files on its own..
damn phone..i brought back to the seller.. this wasnt i expected.. dont buy this. lesson learned..
I am back guys! at the 2nd week of using my M5 it got auto shutdown twice but after force opening it via connecting it to the battery plug it opens. now it is 1month with me and no more auto shutdown issues. Hoping it will not comeback. but overall it is a very good phone for me. -PH from Cash and Carry
My Xperia M5 got speaker problem. The sound output sometimes change to the earpiece speaker. After a restart, it returned to normal. This happen few times. Please advise.
Ibought m5 last October 2015 for my hunsband after a month , he experience battery empty even if its indicate 100% when someone called, before he answer its low batt. or shutdown, so disappointed.
I am an M5 dual user. I just bought my fone last october 2015, and after a month i went back 2 store where i bought my fone bcoz of d error of its front camera. Then after 3weeks, dey replaced my fone with a brand new m5. Then agen, at first it functions well. But, as time goes by, i noticed dat my fone automatic shutdown and it cant read my memory card. So i decided 2 go back to store agen. And now, my fone is still der. And have 2 wait for 3weeks agen. I got very disappointed with M series. Sad to say, but its not worth d price.
The first time my xperia M5 was sent at the service centre in Ipoh and usually they will collect and sent to KL to be repair there. But this time they sent to service centre in Ipoh which is new and maybe not even sony's official service centre since they also repairs for other phone brand. After the problems have been stated to them they said they will change the motherboard and the screen but I read on the xda forum the official sony service release a note to replace the battery from v2 to v3 version for the auto shutdown problem. After 1 week the phone was received back from the center and when we got home the back glass of the phone popped out it was not securely put together. A few days later we sent the phone back to the service centre and got it back. The phone autoshutdown happens more frequently, the phone is running hot, the camera very hard to focus and the quality is worsten, the glass back of the phone popped out again, the power and volume keys are very hard to press, the upper parts of the screen still have light bleedings. Sony service centre dont know how to repair phone properly, if the glass back of the phones popped out how about the water resistant capabilities? They also do not know how to solve the auto shutdown problem. SONY YOU SHOULD GIVE REFUND AND STOP SELLING THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE IF YOU DONT WANT TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS.
