Guys,coming from a former m5 user who encounter prob with the sd card,i suggest if u still wanna use sony then go for z3,or z5 if ur budget allows it,altho i dont use sony anymore but I still believe in the brand,now im using samsung a8,i can tell you altho the a8 is suppose to be a lower mid range vs the m5 but daily usage has been much better than the m5,and the a8 camera thrashes the m5 in terms of focus n speed in capturing,and stability in reading the sd card.currently the a8 is the best midrange samsung has,and just a tad more expensive than m5.

I planned to upgrade mine to z5 compact but i felt additional 8k pesos is another ripoff!!! Z5 compact has lower specs. Rear cam and fingerprint scanner are its only advantage to m5. Im planning to get LG G4 instead.
