Bought two units of M5 last Sep 19 but my husband and I encountered problems in less than two weeks of use. His phone shuts down on its own, even on a high battery level, and will only open if you plug with a charger. When it opens, date/time settings don't update automatically as it should. The store replaced it with another brand new unit but it has the same issue. My initial problem with my unit was lagging and hanging even there's no multiple apps running and it sometimes click random screen parts without me doing anything, but now it got worse when it started to have the same problem of turning off by itself. That's 3 units with the same problem. I hope sony can fix that because we love the phone,great cam and sounds. Going back to the store again tomorrow. What a hassle!

Mangkuk, 11 Oct 2015sent your m5 dual for warranty claim. i just do and waiting to collect my phone back. cannot w... moreI got the same problem, sent my phone to sony repair center, they called me back and said it is a default firmware problem which they can't be solve at this moment. Asked me to wait for another 3-4 days.... sux
I was so regret to buy this M5 dual. Bough this phone 2 weeks ago, the battery could not be charged up to 100% while the phone was switch off, whenever it charged to 80%, the phone will stop charging. I took it to the HK Sony customer center and they canÂ’t give me an explanation for that. They gave me a report saying that there is not man caused damage and I took the phone to the retailer and exchange a new M5 dual. Same problem was found with the new phone and problem even getting worse, the phone will suddenly shut down (with more than 70% battery) and no matter what I tried, they phone canÂ’t be switch on again, unless I plug it with the charger. It shut down 3 times in a week and I was really piss of as I have dated my friend to pass him something and the phone suddenly shut down and I could not reach him at all. I went back to Sony customer center again and told their staff there should be a default factory problem with this M5 model and asking whether there is any solution. They just ask me to leave my phone to their technician for checkup. I told them 2 phones with the same problem and you really donÂ’t think it is a default factory problem? They couldnÂ’t give me a better answer but give me 2 choices, one is leave the phone to them or take the phone to the retailer and see whether they could offer me a new phone. I decided to leave my phone to Sony as the retailer didnÂ’t do anything wrong in this case.
They called me back today and admitted these 2 problems are all caused by the default software of the phone, they didnÂ’t tell me which software, but I believe is the default android written by Sony. They canÂ’t fix my phone by now and need to wait. (I donÂ’t know how long I need to wait) Why I should pay for a phone which has not been tested probably before it released to the market? Also, I really donÂ’t believe none of the staff in HK Sony customer service realize there is a default factory problem with their phone. I am totally disappointed with the product and also the after sales service provided by their staff.
Other than the above mentioned, the phone heat up very easy, the battery die so fast (compare to the Z1 compact and Z3 I had), sometime the apps will freeze the monitor and canÂ’t function even you press the return or home button.
Does percentage jumps when u restart your phone while charging? Is that normal? I need ur reply. Ty
pwcc, 11 Oct 2015Silly quection ha...z5Before i ask this, i already review and read more articles that you do ^_^ So its better for me to ask about this. I'm asking about differences and i guess z5 dual is par with m5 dual although m5 is mediatek and z5 is snapdragon. So take time to read, much better not to answer my question with your non-sense grammar in English :D
AnonD-439693, 11 Sep 2015Does M5 Dual has a gyroscope?you asked the right question. NO, IT DOESNT HAVE A GYROSCOPE. capitals only to ensure that every one reads. it has proximity, halleffect, orientation, accelerometer and magnetometer only.
thephoneguy, 27 Sep 2015you know that Samsung A8 uses Snapdragon 615 right? A chip that is well known for overheati... more70C is understatement. After a software update, when i checked the temp, it showed 83*c on cpu z app. I couldnt believe that!
Z, 01 Oct 2015I owned a Gold Xperia M5 the phone in ok but it tends to become hot compared to my former Xperia TX.xperia tx is a dual core with very low end processor. M5 had octacore clocked at 2 ghz. Trust me, this heat is nothing compared to snapdragon 615 and 810. Also, came to know that initial batch of m5 had some manufacturing defects and heatup more
Z, 03 Oct 2015I just realized that my gold xperia M5 have a severe screen bleeding. From the warranty book t... moreyou are 100% correct. My old xperia device displays are much better. Bleeds from the top. Very clearly visible and very irritating. Makes me question the capability of the designers and engineers. Didnt expect such a thing on a mid range flagship that costs 35000 inr
