I am surprised with the. Reviews here i recently purchased the xperia m5 E5663 dual and i must say it is a very good device battery is a huge improvement over that of the s6 and performance is fair 2 say on par with that of a z3 i havent experienced any of the problems stated here and got like 20+ minutes of 4k recording..
Overall i think it a very good phone for its price..... Ps i think sony could have included a good pair of hi res in ear buds tho...

Anyways the Z5 is a good choice it is just ridiculously priced especially on installment plans. Good luck on your new phone.
i bought this phone in oct....so for no major issues...battery average(obvious with 3GB of ram),as far as heating is concern it get heated at back that too is ok...not to the level someone can fry an egg on it.camera is awesome both front and rear..
music and camera in unmatched with any brand.(music not even iphone).
Siraj_enriq, 10 Dec 2015xpria m5 or htc one A9? pleas...!I dont think its good to go for m5. I used my phone for 10 days before the battery had problems. I cant turn on the phone at all and had to change the battery. I also had other problems such as overheating, random shutdowns, lagginess and couldnt turn on unless connected to charger.
Expensive rubbish. normal performance lasted 2 weeks then the problems started. Most troublesome is the phone shutting down when I travel outside city/suburban signal range and I can't restart the phone until I plug it into a power point, even though the battery is fully charged. Because its a dual sim version not retailed in Australia by Sony, I can't get any help from them .
It does get really hot in usage. Games apps crash, and lots of little irritations making the phone one that I feel like throwing into the rubbish bin. Hong Kong supplier will not exchange for a replacement, they want to repair it! So another $25 to post it back and be without a phone for goodness knows how long!!! I think I'll avoid any phones with MTK processors in future.

I dont know why they are still selling. Maybe they have a lot of brandnew stock in their warehouse.They are taking the risk to sell them and hoping no one return it back bcoz of its defects.
Im going to SM North Edsa now. let see..

Happy for those who dont get any problem with their phone, but seriously and sincerely the problem is actually real and we are not trolling here.
Anyways, could you please share the location where you bought it ? I bought from Jusco Tebrau city JB, they cant do anything i might go to service centre later to solve this :(
I bought sony m5 sept 5 2015 @ sony sm north annex philippines.
November 30, 2015 i returned it
Switching mobile Gsm to Lte shutdown
They replace it after 5 days they said its now the second batch.
Now im using this phone after i used its flashlight, about 30mins
Of usage basically the phone will standby while using it and ofcourse the phone will get hot also just a bit. Now when you press the power button it wont turn on. You have to force shutdown and restart again. You cannot turn off the flashlight coz you cant open your phone.
Il be replacing this phone with z5 as per memo xpress after replacing with a new m5 and still get some problems thats the time you can as for other model replacement but still a sony brand.
