Hi im from Malaysia, and i want to buy this phone, this phone is my first choice between Z2, C5 ultra and M5, i like a good front camera, and i like gaming and i want it to runs smoothly thats why M5 is my first choice considering the 13MP front camera with 3gb ram, but when i read all the negative opinion im afraid to buy this product, however i heard that some saying the new batch is release, is it true? is this phone is safe to buy now? please give me some info on this product espescially someone from malaysia, i am a sony fanboy and i dont want waste money on some failure product
M5 Dual is one to avoid, camera app continually crashes and shuts phone down, and then have to connect to power supply to start up again. Music app continually starts by itself. Finally after a month completely died and now waiting for it to be repaired
Aditya, 26 Jan 2016I have a plan to buy m4, is m4 doesn't have any problem? is it better than m5?? in my country,... moreHi, Im in Indo also

I have a plan to buy m4, is m4 doesn't have any problem? is it better than m5?? in my country, Indonesia only supply m4 which is 8Gb internal memory
i've always admired sony products but this phone made me dislike them now...
don't buy M5 dual... mine's been replaced 3 times and keeps having the same error.. automatic shutdown sometimes even while im charging it!!! its waste of money and time to go back again and again to service center...
AnonD-487868, 13 Jan 2016I have been using this mobile for 7days......and its an enough time to judge a mobile i think.... moreturning your network from lte/wcdma to GSM will not solve this problem, the solution is temporary, based on my experience. I suggest to go to your nearest authorized Sony center to give u a technical report for replacement of other unit or brand, not to m5.
hello guys my phone is from singapore and its working fine i am wondering why are you having the problem may be the new batch of xperia m5 is already resolve ihave a new batch from where i buy:) i hope you get xperia m5 from singapore or may be from japan not in taiwan or china:) i think there is some sort of problem in the battery
Kamal, 23 Jan 2016I come across alots negative comments about M5 Dual Sony, but i have been using Sony M5 for ab... moreThanks Kamal. I have really admired xperia m5 features. Am happy that you are saying it works fine. I intend to buy one. But would like to buy exactly like yours so that am equally happy. Have noted there are three versions of m5 coded as E5633, E5643 and E5663. Which code is yours? I believe your code is what is good. Kindly.
I come across alots negative comments about M5 Dual Sony, but i have been using Sony M5 for about 2 months now, so far the device works fine, camera absolutely super, battery consumption average. Its worth to buy M5 dual for its price....Best midrange smartphone ever from Sony... Sony User
Sony Xperia M5 Dual
Too fast discharge my battery 🔋
Plz give any risen
Don't Buying This 📱
Battery problem and west money
I bought this one as it released because i see that its specifications are much higher than as it expected for its price.. After I bought one with official warranty, it's really working ok the whole day. However, the next day when i wanted to change the back cover, i saw that the back lit was slightly opened, so i quickly went to service center and they made me a replacement.
Now I am using another M5 dual. There are some problems with using this one. The most annoying problem is glove touch error due to software conflicts.. When i turned on the glove touch mode, sometimes there are auto touches happened to some areas of the screen which is absolutely annoying. Another problem is speaker & microphone error as it is not working after i used many software at the same time.Therefore, i made updates from google play store & turned off that glove touch. Now, it's working quite fine.. I like its performance, resolution, selfie camera so much that's why i am with patient in using this one. By all means, it really worth for its price... :-) :-)
made the mistake of buying 2 Xperia M5's last december. Didn't last more than a week before the issues of units turning off and not able to run again without being connected to a charger.
Service for the unit takes 2 weeks. Plus you have to bring it to the main service center. Not just any service center nearby.

Amanur, Bangladesh, 07 Dec 2015How do I know that the phone is 2nd or 1st edition? Any mark there? What is the opinion of Sony?Bro.....Did u purchase this phn? I am very much interested to buy it. But after reading all the comments of different users, I am getting scared. Tell me something. I am also a BangladeshI.
I had purchased this mobile M5 on 9 Jan 2016 vide Invoice No. SLF02A011020102719 from Croma store Pune, Aundh., after using Sony mobile M5 very happily for Two years.
I think I made a mistake doing this. This mobile has major issues:
1. The battery life is being claimed to be 2 days by you. The M@ dual used to give me around 30 hours after a full charge. This one gives just about 9 or 10 HoursÂ….. ???
2. The mobile goes of for no reason unexpectedly anytime of the day or night, even when the battery has enough charge. Then the switch on button does not work. One has to connect the mobile to a charger or to a PC to switch on the mobile. This has happened around 10 + times in the last 13 days.
3. The mobile goes to one way communication, suddenly. The party cannot hear me and I can hear the party, irrespective of whether it is an incoming call or an outgoing call. And it remains this way until and unless the mobile is restarted. Real top irritant
4. One App downloaded from Playstore, Paid app, used to work well on M2. but on this it repeatedly hangs. I had sent error reports on this may times. but it continues.
Is it possible for me to return this mobile? I had an option of buying Apple and I did not, due to the good experience I had with Sony M2.
Kiambi , 21 Jan 2016Thank you very much my friend. I had really been put off by comments from others about Xperia ... moreKindly can someone clarify to me if there are different versions of Xperia m5 aqua? I read from one of us that those originating from Singapore could be more genuine than others. I am not sure if we can talk of genuine and fake versions because I haven't bought yet but I am just concerned as I decide to go for mine. I am in Kenya and have already seen this phone in our shops. Are they genuine? Please.
