I had the same problem with the battery losing charge but I went to the about phone settings, in the settings menu, and did all the tests and the GPS was stuck, reset it by getting the satellite to pick it up and my phone has been OK since, charges normally

I've just managed to do the software repair and have gotten everything back onto my phone so I'll see how it goes over the next couple of days.
Although I have just run the tests and my GPS isnt working either. I'll try see if I can reset it. Im just hoping I don't have to send my phone off for fixing.

You may experience that the battery drains quickly or becomes unusually hot on your Xperia E5. This is known behaviour caused by the AVG Protection/Antivirus app version 6.10.9 (released May 22nd 2018). We have asked AVG to release a new version to fix this issue as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, there is a workaround that will correct the behaviour immediately. Simply follow the instructions below to disable AVG Protection/Antivirus.

So done the software repair and reset GPS, still having problems. Now I've tried disabling the agv protection, so hopefully that will work. Fingers crossed

Have had massive problems with my E5 for last two weeks. Hope this cures it as it has cost me a fortune in lost work as im self employed and have lost jobs through this!

Just thought I'd let everyone know DISABLING AVG PROTECTION WORKED! Phone is now completely back to normal. Thank you

I have had exactly the same problem with my Xperia E5 and was just about to take it back to the dealer I bought it from to say the phone was faulty. Thank goodness I decided to "google around" first and found this thread. I have uninstalled AVG Protection completely (I don't use my phone for internet, only calls and texts) and now my phone is back to normal again.
Thank you so much to Sony Xperia Support Staff for providing the solution. :smileysmileythumbsup:
