Description

Sony Xperia M5, which can be viewed as a successor to the Xperia M4 Aqua, comes with a 5-inch 1080p display and is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6795 chipset, a 2.0GHz octa-core silicon that is a member of MediaTek's top-end Helio X10 line. There's also 3GB of RAM, 16GB of native storage and a microSD card slot, and a 2,600mAh battery at the back to keep lights on. Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sony's Xperia UI is powering the device. Undoubtedly, the highlight of the phone is its camera, a 21.5MP rear snapper that has an f/2.2 aperture and has a maximum light sensitivity of up to ISO 3200. The rear camera comes with a fast hybrid autofocus that is reportedly able to do its mojo in merely 250 milliseconds.
