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 :)

By specification on paper a little bit HTC is better. But i'm always choosing Sony for their good quality of smartphones or others devices.

I purchased Sony m5 just 2 weeks ago.its back gets hot and get shut down automatically and then one solution to make it on is inserting power cable.
Is it used battery or new updates.
Sony service center jeddah refused to entertain as they only take mobile sets if purchased from Sony world.
My warrant is m2 telecom Riyadh. It also refused to solve my problem. I don't know what does warranty mean.
