This phone is equivalent to a 5000 rupee phone(price of this phone is 35,000). I found nothing good in it except the camera.It hangs a lot. Processor is also not good. It does not have gorilla glass even. The mobile claims to have a scratch resistant glass, but you would observe 2-3 scratches after just one falling of the mobile to the floor. I request Sony to deliver such products which match their prestige.
I am from the philippines and I bought sony xperia m5. im truly not satisfied with this phone. the sony store has replaced the phone 2 times already but still having auto shutdown problems. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. if I have questions you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are getting autoshutdown try change your mobile network to GSM only it works fine. I know it has LTE but I'm waiting for new Android 6.0 version or change yr battery should be fine.
It's really a worst model from Sony. Highly disappointing. Phone automatically shutdowns and don't start without putting on charge. No support from Sony. They only know to sell. Not at all recommended.

Guys,coming from a former m5 user who encounter prob with the sd card,i suggest if u still wanna use sony then go for z3,or z5 if ur budget allows it,altho i dont use sony anymore but I still believe in the brand,now im using samsung a8,i can tell you altho the a8 is suppose to be a lower mid range vs the m5 but daily usage has been much better than the m5,and the a8 camera thrashes the m5 in terms of focus n speed in capturing,and stability in reading the sd card.currently the a8 is the best midrange samsung has,and just a tad more expensive than m5.
