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.
I want to buy the phone but want to understand this two issues. Does the phone have three card slots or two cards slots. Where the Three slots will me two for sim cards and one for SDcard(memory)
Or it is only two cards slots whereby when you use two simcards(meaning different network operators), you will not have the option of inserting a SD card for data storage you will have to rely on the 16G phone storage.

Niko, 01 Nov 2015Sony service center will replace sony xperia m5 units that experiences automatic shutdown. Jus... moreWhich country are you from? Because in Malaysia it's really hard to belive that as it's quite impossible for the Sony Malaysia to replace the phone,they only will repair your phone.
Sony service center will replace sony xperia m5 units that experiences automatic shutdown. Just bring your receipt and unit
Stamina mode not working, even activated nothing change in battery life, it easily drain... Is that normal?
to solve the shutting down issue try the below steps.
change the network from automatic ( GSM/ WCDMA) to be manual GSM if u aren't using internet data ( 2G) . or choose WCDMA if u r using 3G.
till now it works good with me hope it doesn't shutdown cuz i love this phone.
