  1. Meh maghihintay na lang ako ng official release. Mahirap magpakawala ng 19.5k sa bagong model na grey unit. Iyak ang consumer pag faulty ang first batch of production.

  2. Just got home from Sony Concept Store in Fairview Terraces and saw that they are already selling the Sony Xperia M5. Retail price is 21k for cash and 23k for credit card.

  3. 20k lang to? i was expecting a 25k+ price tag, this being a “super-midrange” (in sony’s words)
    now excited to see how much the grey market will sell this, haha.

    1. oops, looks like 19.5k is the grey market price.. if what DoJ is saying is true, id get it for the official cash price then.. and hoping for a first-release discount like what they did to the m4 aqua and c4.
