Very good phone for the money

kastor has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Phone is great for my everyday usage, great mix of everything for good money.
I have it of 6 months now and i had no issues or problems with it. Simply put it is best u can get at this price point ( got mine for 225 euros, now it's even cheaper)

Sony Xperia M5! The Super-Midrange Smartphone of 2015/2016

ZiqSonyTech has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

The Sony Xperia M5 was dubbed the "Super"-midrange phone of the year in Mobile Choice Awards 2016 and I wouldn't agree less....Great water resistant build, impressive performance, good enough solid battery life(1 day and a half on normal average usage) and awesome cameras for great value of money! Truly a wonderful phone to have! Expect it to last around 2/3 years!

Build quality
10.0
Great build quality with IP 68 waterproofing.
Reception
9.0
Great value for money.
Call quality
9.0
Vocals are crisp and clear.
Internet
9.0
Internet is smooth and runs well.
Multimedia
10.0
Music is superb with Sony's music enhancements such as ClearAudio+ and VPT Surround Sound. Video is also crisp and clear together with Sony's Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 Tech.
Camera
10.0
The 21.5 MP main camera is awesome in many ways and it can record in stunning 4K video footage! The 13 MP Selfie camera is just "selfie-tastic"!
UI speed
9.0
Sony's Xperia UI runs smoothly as always and it's great that it can be upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and hopefully it can be upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat soon.
Everyday usage
9.0
Everyday usage is great and it seldom lags although it does get hot and auto restarts at times but, it is acceptable.
Text input
10.0
Text runs quickly and smoothly throughout many social media apps especially WhatsApp and Wechat.
Display
9.0
The 1080p display is great and clear and there are a number of modes to boost the image quality and color gamut of the device which is always welcome.
Battery
9.0
The 2600mAh battery gives a solid good enough battery life of 1 day minimum(for heavy usage) and up to 2 days maximum( for light usage) which on average, will give a solid 1 day and a half of juice (for normal usage) per charge.

Pros

  • IP 68 water resistant build
  • Crisp 1080p display
  • Solid good enough battery life
  • Superb cameras
  • Great Value for money

Cons

  • Gets warm and hot at times
  • Suddenly auto-restarts once in a while
