Audifone, 14 Nov 2015Please don't buy this phone. Might be not all pieces are faulty. But why would anyone like to ... moreI just bought this phone and it easily heats up. So I guess I need to trade it with a cheaper one. When I turn on my music for 2hrs, it died. Satisfaction not guarantee.
Buying this was a big mistake. I thought by the name Sony their product are good, but this phone is just a waste of money. Using this phone for a month now and experience shutdown once, the 4k video is not working properly, built it camera app Face in picture flickers and almost unusable. It is also blurred sometimes. My old asus phone which is cheaper is more reliable than this more expensive M5 dual. When you read review of sony other model phone also have problems. This is my first and last sony phone in my hand, never again. They are good only in advertisement.
Please don't buy this phone. Might be not all pieces are faulty. But why would anyone like to risk their money. I was a fan of this phone after looking at its specs. Now I feel like to sell it for some other android piece. Yesterday, after using it for a week, it was not turning on. It was dead. People from sony's service center asked me to submit my piece, as they have to send it to their repairing center, which would take at least a week. Now they have provided some crappy piece of Sony Xperia L2 as a stand-by piece. If any phone making company's piece can not work properly even for 10 days, then they should stop their business!
Ishu, 13 Nov 2015Little bit confused with xpria m5 dual and galaxy a8. Which one is better?Don't buy M5.
