i'm a student from malaysia. i already use it for 2 days and i've experience that this this phone warm a bit. about the camera, you should not worry the camera is superb. but there are some camera apps will be error to open . but if you like taking picture . so yes it is worth it with the 4k video and the 21.5mp. although the phone is water resistant i suggest you to not put it in water or rain.
just buy it a week ago. superb phone. doesnt experience anything like overheating, autoshutdown. camera is great, phone is smooth. maybe because my phone its second batch. just buy it if u want it.
Amigoss, 28 Oct 2015i shocked from your opinion about shutdown problem in M5 please advice i just bought one NOW s... moreDude,do not open.just throw that fone on their face. Its crap fone.ol m5 dual got shut down issues nd wont turn unless connected to usb charger. Buy other brand.
TeyTers, 22 Nov 2015wait for marshmallow update. it is almost around the corner. Yeah I'm waiting for updates too.
I am from Malaysia. Dont buy this phone, it overheats, battery only 2600mah and it is very pricey. The 2nd day i used, got charging issues. I sent my phone to service centre and luckily get to claim a new one from directd. Then now im using note 4 . Happy with it. Luckily i sold my m5 quickly or else it will face the shutdown problems as i saw many people mentioned it. I suggest you all buy
samsung note 3/4 or either Asus' phone. Sony sucks man . I will never buy sony again.
Shut, 15 Nov 2015should i buy this phone? I saw a lot of negative comment. Does i goes to Malaysian user also? ... moreI strongly not recommended this phone. Because even it 'mid-range' but the price still high. And in malaysia you can find high end phone that has same price like m5 dual such as z3 or z1 compact or even z2. If you look for a phone with a long battery life maybe you can buy lenovo k70 with a 4000mAh battery life. Mi4i a good choice too.
I dont about the overheating issue... But please dont use it underwater for first batch before week 40.. I got this phone a month ago and after 2 day without issue i use it underwater. For the first 10 minute the phone just working normal, i take underwater photo and video and then the nightmare suddenly happen. My so 'waterproof' m5 dual goes half green and blurrinh then auto shutdown itself. And it never wake again 😢😢. I send it to the sony center and after a month of torture without phone i finally got my phone back and sony eventually change it to the new phone with 4215 second batch and new motherboard. I use it for three week it just work normally but suddenly after i use 4g simcard the trouble comeback. The overheating issue and not only google chrome but every browser that ever existed cannot work properly. But for camera thumbs up its a great camera all working normal. 4k video such a beautiful video. And i forgot to tell that before my old phone broke the camera not functioning properly and some camera app cant even started.
xxITERUxx, 23 Nov 2015Looks like i'm not the only one having shutdown issues. Bought mine from Hongkong. Was only us... morehey be careful. if you had experienced the shut down issue means your device is faulty anyway. so my advice to you. take it to sony center and ask for a healthy replacement before it's too late and they can refuse.
Looks like i'm not the only one having shutdown issues. Bought mine from Hongkong. Was only using it for 3 days when suddenly it died. Had to use a charger to start it up. Batt's not even empty yet. This happened to me almost everyday till this weekend. Following the advise of a friend I simply removed the sims, turned the phone on and let it sit for an hour, then turned it off and put back both sim cards. Now it's been 2 days and no shutdown yet. Will still monitor for changes. Just one question, has anyone tried using a ps3 controller for this? There's no option to connect a ps3 controller in settings, unlike my old phone m2 aqua.

I bought one yesterday (Nov 19, 2015) in Trinoma Mall, QC, Philippines and after charging the phone, I tested the video of primary and front camera.To my dismay, the front camera is blinking. Tried to restart it and it goes all right but when I tested it several times, it happened again... and again and there's a time when the rear camera also blinks. I don't have any idea if this is normal (since it's my first time using a sony phone) but I would like to have it replaced right away... :(
