Sony Xperia M5

Design and Screen

Featuring its maker’s distinctive OmniBalance design, Sony Xperia M5 is built to last with premium glass finish on both its front and back as well as with stainless steel on its corners.

The construction should put your mind at rest when the device is subjected to occasional knocks and bumps. Your peace of mind is further guaranteed by the phone’s resistance to water and dust. Sony says the Xperia M5 can even be rinsed under a tap if it gets dirty.

Sony Xperia M5 is impressively slim at 7.6 millimetres. It sports a 5-inch diagonal display with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The IPS panel, backed by Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, is designed to offer immersive, wide-angle viewing experience.

The Cameras

Since this is a camera-focused or selfie-focused device, it should be expected to impress in this department and it didn’t fail to. On the rear, you will find an amazing 21.5-megapixel Exmor RS sensor with Hybrid Autofocus to enable you take jaw-dropping images.

The selfie camera comes with several features to enable you take perfect selfies every time.

Hardware and Software

Somewhat surprisingly, the Xperia M5 runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, which is not the latest.
