2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Neat, simple design
  • Very well-made and durable
  • Water-proofing is a welcome perk that gives the Xperia M5 an extra edge
  • Good display - gets great marks in terms of maximum brightness and has fairly accurate color rendition
  • Xperia launcher on top of Android runs nicely, and looks good
  • Decent speed/performance
  • Decent front and back cameras (although a little sluggish)
  • Good battery life
  • Beautiful, dual-glass OmniBalance design - the frame is even sleeker than the Z3 and together with the new materials exudes even more luxury
  • Ultra-slim at 6.9mm
  • Light, and pleasant to handle
  • Water-resistant
  • Excellent display with rich colors and nice viewing angles
  • Xperia UI doesn't stray far from stock Android 5.0.2 Lollipop - it's simple and fluid, with some added features like Sony's small apps
  • Good speed/performance, backed by powerful hardware
  • Very good camera
  • Dual stereo speakers provide good, clean output
  • Good audio quality
  • Rich feature-filled multimedia apps for pictures, videos, music
  • Decent battery life
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Average loudspeaker
  • A lot of bloatware comes preinstalled
  • Tends to overheat when put under stress (during gaming, watching videos, etc)
  • Gets hindered from operating at peak performance due to thermal throttling down
