Hi, I purchased Sony Xperia M5 Dual in April 2016. After Using 1 months, I like to put my opinion below:- (1)Display :- Better (2)Front Camera:- Better (3)Rear Camera:- Best in class (4)Performance :- Better (5)Sound:- Good Clearity. I don't have auto shutdown problem. Even there is little bit heating issue but I can able to manage it. For me, this phone is best in class just for Rs.25000. Thanks.

btw for me Sony Xperia M5 Dual is enough for me. Go ahead to get a high end phone if you are afforable. M5 is a mid range phone but still perform as well. Higher pixel camera (rear and front) on a mid range is quite rare. Mediatek Helio X10 is actually should be enough for yours who want to have a better phone but quite hard to get it. Xperia M5 is your choice!
Now Sony has solution to fix the autos shutdown problem. Only you need to do ks send your phone to Sony service centre and wait patiently for one month to repair. After that, you may use your phone as usual.I tried before and it works perfectly.
karthik, 01 May 2016sony m5 is far better than z3+Sorry bro, but I beg to differ. I watched a youtube video and I realised that the response of the Z3 was faster than that of the M5. It should be the other way round, because the Z3 is 2.5Ghz quadcore and the M5 is 1.5Ghz octacore. If the Z3 is better than the M5, then you can imagine what the Z3+ has. I haven't used the Z3+, but after the comparison between the M5 and Z3, I got the Z3.
Irritating! I bought it last November or December 2015 (I guess). On 4 February 2016 it just automatically shutsdown and won't turn On anymore unless connected to a power source. It was over-heating, then I decided to remove the simcard and put it on another phone so I can text and call. Amazingly, M5 is working properly again, I can play games, play music, watch video, etc. Going to bring it to a service center soon and hopefully will be able to use it with a simcard this time. Irritating part... it will take 2 months to have it back according to the lady from the service center.
I have purchased this phone when it was launched.. I have replaced it from service center twice and also replaced motherboard on my third handset.
1st time I replaced it because it was heating too much very quickly also the back cover got opened. I had this problem in first two days of use so I got replacement under DOA.
2nd handset was getting switched off suddenly and was not getting started unless connected to charger. I got it replaced too, Thanks to sony service center.
3rd handset was getting switched off suddenly and was not getting ON again so they replaced the mother board and battery of the phone.
now its been working for a month since the replacement and hoping it will work better and longer, but I can not trust this product anymore
