Sony Xperia M5

 

Sony's mobile division is in a strange place right now. It's killed off the Z series and launched the Xperia X and Xperia XA without altering the design formula it's used for years.

Sony Xperia M5 review

 

More storage, more power, more megapixels – for a lot more money

Sharp, vibrant screen ; Stylish water-resistant design ; Solid battery life

Sluggish camera ; Too similar to M4 Aqua ; Performance isn't the best

The Sony Xperia M5 has a gorgeous screen and is a competent phone in every other way, but its a small, expensive upgrade on the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua.

Sony Xperia M5 review: A mid-range handset for UK selfie fans

 

A sluggish chipset and mediocre battery life fail to make the Xperia M5 stand out

Ultimately, though, the Xperia M5 struggles to distinguish itself from the similarly-priced Nexus 5X and Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo. Its large front-facing camera and copious selfie modes will no doubt be enough to sway some, but those after a more general...

Sony Xperia M5 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony invites you to 'take photos like a pro' with the Sony Xperia M5. It's a mid-range mobile phone that offers great call quality. But does it have a long-lasting battery and fast processor? We spill the beans in our full review below.

Sony Xperia M5 review: Shoots 13MP selfies, but is the rest of this phone any good?

 

Sony's mid-range Xperia packs a punch, especially if you care more about selfies than raw power

So, with the Xperia M5, you have a decidedly mid-range phone in a stylish-looking frame. That’s a pretty good proposition if it weren’t for the price: £299 is a lot for a handset like this, no matter how nice it looks when you look at what you can get...

Sony Xperia M5

 

A mid-range smartphone that surprises and intrigues, the Xperia M5 serves up a great display and camera combo that is an undoubted feather in Sony's cap.

Fantastically sharp and bright display; Solid performing camera; Good multitasking performance

Plastic frame feels slightly cheap

All in all, the Xperia M5 gets the necessary things right, and surprises (in a good way) on a few others. When I reflect on the Xperia M4 Aqua, this smartphone's predecessor, the slightly sub-par display and propensity to heat up come to mind. With the...

Sony Xperia M5 Review: Not Very Good At All...

 

The Sony Xperia M is targeted as a upper-mid-range handset retailing for an RRP of £300. This puts it in the same price bracket as the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo, members of the Samsung Galaxy A and C series, the Google Nexus 5X, and the Moto Z Play, and at...

Good screen, nice design, decent front camera

Poor processor, low battery life, bad primary camera

Best avoided. The Xperia M5 is severely lacking in several key areas and there are much, MUCH better smartphones at the same price

Sony Xperia M5 Review

 

In terms of processing power, look and feel the Sony Xperia M5 is categorized below Sony's Xperia Z flagship line of smartphones. However, like the Z-models it's dust-proof and waterproof and has a lot to offer in the photography department. In the...
