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.

Sony best, 27 Dec 2015Bro this is mid range phoneMaybe so a mid range phone, but it should run for longer than 3 weeks before dying! And longer than a week before giving problems and I reckon that AU$377 + $25 shipping is not all that "mid-range" pricing. After all, the Asus Zenfone dumped the Intel Atom processor for Qualcomm without much affect on the pricing!

I am from Indonesia
My M5 Dual get restart itself coz of weak signal
But no need charger.Normal again..
Yes, big problems with this M5, First it shuts down when signal is weak and will not restart until plugged in to power. Gets very hot in use. Crashes when playing busy games. Then eventually died completely within one month. I believe the problem is the MTK processor. If Sony replace the MTK processor with 810 Qualcomm Snapdragon this will be a really great phone. I sent phone back to retailer in Hong Kong, waiting for replacement...... I hope, or maybe exchange for Samsung Galaxy S5, more reliable for use in Australia. I got the M5 because specifications attracted me, but now I believe reliability is better.
Sadie, 18 Dec 2015I received my second replacement M5 Dual last Tuesday. I'm hoping the third time's the charm. ... moreUpdate: 13 days in, no automatic shut down issues. I am on LTE all day and heavily use mobile data. This looks promising. By the way, the guy in the service centre said this new batch of phones was shipped from Singapore. Don't know if that makes any difference.
