Using this phone for three weeks. It's really awesome. I request everyone not to put reviews without using the phone. I am a rough user. I have played almost all the high level games (About 7). It never lagged. One more thing battery is just 2600mah. If you bought this phone then you must not comment anything about this phone. Because you must have known a Octa-Core 2 GHz MT6795T and a PowerVR G6200 will definitely consume much battery. My battery still stands for about 13Hrs (3G, Location and Auto-Sync ON!!!). One more important thing my phone has never turned off automatically. What else you need at a rate cap of 35K?? Camera still stands first when compared to the other phones. Sound quality is good as well. I am very happy buying this phone.
I'm so close in buying this M5 good thing I read your post. I'm from the Philippines too. So Sony Philippines can not do something about those "issues" plaguing this smartphone. Sayang it has a potential although pricey when you get it from Sony but cheaper in gray market.
auto shutdown once a week.... no way to turn on... except plug in power cable...

Sony does not have a solution. I bought mine in a Sony Store in Hongkong.. After five days I had the same problem
Many of us here in the Philippines are having the same problem of sudden shutdown of the M5 even in full battery power. Cannot even turn on with the power button. You have to connect to the power charger to turn it back on. Sony does not have any solution. This model needs a recall...

just upgrade to 5.1.1 or wait for on air update ;-)I am facing the auto shutdown issue. Service center has replaced the phone but i still hv the issue. Eagery waiting to return the phone since there is delay in the s/w update too.
AnonD-455476, 17 Oct 2015What update did you do? Try to update first all the sony installed apps especially Facebook, albums, music and try to install cleaning app since software update is not available yet. Also restart your unit.
Am I that lucky that I got a nice unit last week? Also, for those having battery problem, try to update sony's built in apps and to use the stamina mode to improve battery life.
