WHAT WE LIKED
  • 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

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • Average loudspeaker
  • A lot of bloatware comes preinstalled
