Sony best, 27 Dec 2015Bro this is mid range phoneMaybe so a mid range phone, but it should run for longer than 3 weeks before dying! And longer than a week before giving problems and I reckon that AU$377 + $25 shipping is not all that "mid-range" pricing. After all, the Asus Zenfone dumped the Intel Atom processor for Qualcomm without much affect on the pricing!

I am from Indonesia
My M5 Dual get restart itself coz of weak signal
But no need charger.Normal again..
Yes, big problems with this M5, First it shuts down when signal is weak and will not restart until plugged in to power. Gets very hot in use. Crashes when playing busy games. Then eventually died completely within one month. I believe the problem is the MTK processor. If Sony replace the MTK processor with 810 Qualcomm Snapdragon this will be a really great phone. I sent phone back to retailer in Hong Kong, waiting for replacement...... I hope, or maybe exchange for Samsung Galaxy S5, more reliable for use in Australia. I got the M5 because specifications attracted me, but now I believe reliability is better.
Sadie, 18 Dec 2015I received my second replacement M5 Dual last Tuesday. I'm hoping the third time's the charm. ... moreUpdate: 13 days in, no automatic shut down issues. I am on LTE all day and heavily use mobile data. This looks promising. By the way, the guy in the service centre said this new batch of phones was shipped from Singapore. Don't know if that makes any difference.

The issue existing inside M5 is called 'battery lock'.
Old battery rev is 2 or below...while new battery rev is 3.
Follow the instructions below to check whether ur M5 is facing 'battery lock' or not;
How do we get a refund for sonyM5? I have used 3 different sony brands in last 7yrs and M5 is the most disappointing. Battery drains,power shuts off and camwra hangs. WORSE OF ALL sony offers no solution. I think buyers of M5 must all file a complaint with DTI or consumer complaint organizations.
