The Sony M5 Xperia, many people think that the device will fall in the mid-range segment, but considering the price, this smartphone ranks premium access.

The Xperia M5 design Inherit from the Xperia M4 Aqua, but it comes with more finishing and take special care by Sony. The device housing is created by the renowned designer of Sony Omni Balance philosophy in everything looks beautiful and luxurious. The plastic angled metal imitation, but rather solid and sturdy. It has moderate weight and especially notable four curved and soft edges.
However, this one is Selfie centric smartphone, so the device has the large light and camera sensor on front to take a selfie which is not looking pretty in term of design but it’s understandable because this selfie camera has a resolution up to 13-megapixel. If both (sensor and camera) are made slightly compact, perhaps M5 will be compliments itself over the front design. The Xperia M5 housing covers with tough glass is very sleek and looking fashionable. However, the device housing is quite sticky, but hard to find scratches.
The Sony Xperia M5 is equipped with 5.0-inch IPS screen which is moderate in size, it comes with a Mobile Bravia Engine 2 technology, Full-HD 1080p resolution so picture quality of the M5 is quite excellent, no grainy phenomenon, not green or gold possessed.

Previously, Sony pretty faithful to Snapdragon chipset for stability and good performance, but it’s easy to push the price-up, so recently they tied-up with MediaTek for the mid-range Xperia line, and Xperia M5 is a testament when it comes with a 2.0 GHz Octa-core Cortex-A53 MediaTek MT6795 processor.

Many argue that the MediaTek chipset performance can not match with Snapdragon, but maybe this time they should think again, through the performance evaluation by AnTuTu Benchmark and Geekbench 3, scores of M5 equivalent to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC.[flagallery gid=53]

In low light conditions, the camera just a little short of breath, have to use the manual focus to regain good metering quality for this smartphone. Images start to begin quite a noisy and phenomenon, but not any other serious issue.[flagallery gid=54]
