Niko, 01 Nov 2015Sony service center will replace sony xperia m5 units that experiences automatic shutdown. Jus... moreYes im experiencing automatic shutdown w/ my M5 unit and you have to connect to charger to turn it on. Dates and time went delayed for a while and normalize but shut down again.
AnonD-463117, 06 Nov 2015The phone you buy from where?I bought it in early oct,ori sony waranty from a phone shop in k.dmnsara,my assumption of the shutdown issue is that sony is not familiar n still hving prob to optimise the helio chipset n thus the system may be running on the higher side of temp that triggers the shutdown,in stamina mode i ticked the extended usage n a few more to reduce performnce,n so far extensive usage of ggle maps make the phone heaty but never lead to a shutdown.
wow!after reading all the -ve comment,I'm quite lucky to hv a working m5 with no major prob,only had sd card unmount by itself once in a while but apart from that no issue with shutdown or anything like that,its been a month of use,n coming from xiaomi mi4 n mi4i,m5 camera has really good autofocus speed n resolution details,but the superior auto can only be set at the higher resolution whereelse the z5 families u can toned down the megapixels,so u need big sd card to cater for the big photo size.battery life using stamina mode can last me 3 days,btw im from m'sia.

So guys.. i need your advise.. should i go to M5 Dual or C5 Ultra Dual or Z5 premium (Still shipping to Malaysia) or other phone (Sony Brand).. Thanks..

suduu, 02 Nov 2015wht abt yr sony phone now.it stil havng same issueMy phone still in Sony Service Center . 1 month already and no info at this moment. Last info they are waiting for parts coming to Malaysia in November shipment, then they will install and test it. Now i just wait.
Rams, 02 Nov 2015I want to buy the phone but want to understand this two issues. Does the phone have three card... moreI just received my new M5. There is an elongated dual sim card holder, It has two spaces for each of your two sim cards. Alongside the sim card slot is the SD card holder. So yes you get dual sim card facility PLUS SD card. I bought an OPPO R7 last month on the understanding that it had the same set up, but unfortunately it did not. There were two spaces in the sim card holder, which was for either two sim cards or one sim card and one SD card. So really the Oppo is only a single sim card phone when used with a SD card, which is necessary because the Oppo "Color" operating system which runs over the android OS uses half of the available 16GB memory.
So if you need two sims + SD card, then the M5 is the device for you.
AnonD-461804, 02 Nov 2015i thought ure malaysian. so sorry. i just asking, did this phone run well? what the major prob... moreto me, you will make the greatest mistake of your life wasting your money on this crap. just have a look at all these negative comments and negative experiences and go for another phone. if you want to stick to Sony, people are happy with C5 which is slighly cheaper and larger
after days and days what Sony replies is:
Thank you for contacting the Sony Xperia support centre.
We apologize for the unpleasant experience on your phone. In regards to your case, we regret to inform you that we do not have replacement policy with replace with another model, at most, we can help you seek approval from our management for a replacement with the same model Xperia M5 dual. Current, your phone is still under checking, we will update you again once we received a new update from our service centre.
what a huge support, right?
Some encountered problems because of the 1st release of the phone, wherein this is like a beta test to know the limitations of the handset based on public experience. So just a tip for buyers, avoid purchasing 1st released phones, some of it has defects. I'm a certified sony xperia user. Mine is a z3c and when I bought it the M5 was just released, the salesman offered me the z3c explaining the issues of the 1st released phones.
