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....
AnonD-490949, 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.

Did anyone have a problem with the speaker of m5? sometime my m5 have a problem with it, i need restart it to make the speaker work again.. Any comment
Which one is better between sony m4 and m5? I read there are a lot of problem issues of m5 rather than m4. Because in my country, Indonesia only supply m4 with 8gb internal memory
[deleted post]I am Indonesian
I bought M5 last month and until now
I have nothing bad xperience in using it
Sometimes Internet makes hot in bad signal but I think it's normal
Maybe different country get different components
AnonD-488099, 13 Jan 2016guys suggest me sony m5 sony m4 aqua please i want to buy one of this phone....i am high graph... more There are a lot of problem issue of m5. M4 is better than m5, although m5 has 3gb ram and m4 has 2gb ram. m4 using snapdragon 615 which is better quality than m5 which is using mediatek.
Don't every buy this phone, it is defective, despite many replacements. If you already have one and you experience the camera problem and the auto shutdown problem, better ask for a full refund or take your case to court. I bought two units in October last year and both are defective! Each unit has been replaced at least five times now but still the same problem. The camera and the specs are good, but the stress, inconvenience, and the trouble you get because of the auto shutdown issue is not worth it.
