Sony Xperia M5 review: Changing swim lanes

16 September, 2015
Sony’s tight flagship release schedule went in overdrive this season with the Z3+, Z4v and the Z5 all right on each other’s heels. Making no attempt to slow down, the Japanese are taking that spirit to the midrange as well. What are you waiting for? Upgrade.

      Well, I had the #autoshutdown and #overheat problem with some SIM carriers. All I had to do was downgrade to lollipop 5.0 and everything works fine. It's a great phone

                5months using m5 dual.
                Cons :
                1) overhate (cant playing game because feel Dam hot you know?)
                2) camera are often not function (needs to restard)
                3) no gyro so I cant take panorama 360 degree
                4) the camera too slow to taking picture compare to iPhone.
                5) charging Dam slow
                6) sometimes auto shutdown :(
                Pros :
                1) the camera capture very nice picture
                2) selfie camera Dam good
                3) the UI is great
                4) stamina mood pretty good

When I bring back to service center have broken piece inside they say due to drop impact. En waraanty is void for that cause.i just drop the phone in around my knees high en carpeted flooring with survivor casing. How is that possible if we buy original phone. En use for only one mont?

                            AnonD-442158, 28 Apr 2016"...but the test results we got seem way out of check, so w... morei know right? its been almost half a year and they still dont have a retail unit to test, and the phone's about to be phased out for the new X series. maybe GSMA doesnt plan to re-review the phone anymore.
