ATTENTION! This phone IS NOT waterproof. The claim that it can go 1,5 meters and over 30 minutes is total bullshit. It got killed being submerged in 10-15 centimeters for 3 minutes in a pool with clean mineral water. How it even did that and got water into the lenses without tripping the LDI is beyond me.
I've bought a sony m5 and then a week after it starts switch off itself and crash when i want to open an application.i was very dissapointed about this and i hope in the future sony will improve their quality
jun, 05 Sep 2016My m5 before automatically shot down. Then it was replace by the company with a new unit. Now,... moreMy unit also is still with them almost 2 months now. They said they are still waiting for the part
PCB to arrived. I'm really dissapointed with Sony.
Absolute crap Dont buy there useless never had a phone with so much problems never again I'll go will Sony
Poor Battery Performance , overheating issues , switches off on itself while in my bag. Ridiculous phone.
Which one of these is worth more for its money, xperia m5(290 usd), HTC desire 630(230usd), or p8 lite(190usd)? I know the price ranges are completely different i just want an honest opinion on pros/cons of each of these options.
Visal, 21 Aug 2016Guys , im hoping to buy Xperia M5, Is it worth to buy it rather than HTC butterfly 3 ??No fault issues, been back for repair still came back with no camera function lot of people experiencing these problem,s
My m5 before automatically shot down. Then it was replace by the company with a new unit. Now, the problem again is that it loses signal. It was returned to the supplier for repair until now, the unit is with them it's almost two months.Is these really the characteristics of Sony Xperia M5 unit or the defect. What will I do with this?

Is this a option? I really like the camera and the 4k video. What doe you guys suggest? It is not nearly that bad everyone is commenting here on the site!!
my m5 shutted down when i lost signal, took it in they replaced the battery and now the phone is a dream. very fast and does not lag at all, slows down a bit when the memory is full but that is only noticeable with the auto rotate of the screen.
i would say all in all its a great phone, it does heat up but so does the other phones too. my friend has a Samsung s7 and his phone also gets hot under continues use and so does my friend with LG G4.
This phone is simply trash. It gets hot a lot, it stalls a lot, it so slow, pictures are slow, and it crashed when i used it in water. DONT BUY IT
I've used the Nexus 5 for over 2 years and this phone still cannot compare in terms of speed, size and many other things.
The only thing Sony m5 has going for it is the camera. But that's very slow too and photos are very large which means 16gb out of the box is just not enough.
For the money $400 from kogan I would say it's an OK buy. Nexus are still better for general use for me.
bobswarley, 24 Aug 2016i think the HTC butterfly 3 is much better and so far Always possible to compare it: http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=7592&idPhone2=7464 HTC is little better by specifications on paper :)
