Sony is one of the world’s most reputable techno-companies with roots not only embedded in producing excellent appliances but also in producing superb smartphones. It has produced smartphones in all price ranges and the Xperia M5 is the latest increment in the line of Xperia M smartphones.
Body and Display
Ever since the Z series turned up with its glassy front and back panels, Sony has somewhat stuck to giving all of its newer releases the same build structure and quality. The Xperia M5 follows similar lines by having glass panels at its front and back with a glossy metal frame in between. There isn’t much that can differentiate it from Sony’s flagship Z smartphones except for the fact that the LED flash is situated almost in the center of the back panel. Why is that? We certainly don’t know and it doesn’t really makes the Xperia M5 look any better.
The display though, is another story altogether. A 5.0 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a tremendously good 441ppi pixel density offers not just 1080p HD resolution but also slicker and sharper graphics. The M5 also comes in with Sony’s trademark water and dust-proof technology making it a little heavier than other devices. Still, no love lost though as it provides some much needed metal against water and dust damage.
Sony has constantly gone with greater megapixels rather than going for something different like HTC’s ultra-pixel or Samsung’s dual-pixel technology. Nevertheless, it is still working great and the Xperia M5 offers two huge sensors. The primary camera features a mammoth 21.1 megapixel sensor with phase detection whereas the secondary camera (secondary only by name) boasts a devilish 13 megapixel sensor. The megapixels speak for themselves and there is no denying these cameras their rightful place as two amazing snappers.
Hardware and Software
Just like the larger megapixels, the Xperia M5 shelters 8 cores of 2.0 GHz Cortex A-53 processors with 3GB of RAM. This provides popular muscular strength to tackle any sort of lag and the 16 gigs of internal storage expandable up to 256GB is joyous news indeed. The M5 runs the Android v5.0 Lollipop operating system but so far, we don’t know as to when you will be able to upgrade it to Marshmallow.
