An early 24hr review of the Sony Xperia M5, a flagship-esque smartphone that costs around £300, has a selfie-tastic 13-megapixel front camera and waterproofing as well as stainless steel sides. Impressive for the price, right? Definitely, but what’s most interesting is the fact Sony went with a MediaTek Helio X10 instead of a Qualcomm chipset. How does it stack up after 24 hours? Check out our early hands-on review to find out and fire any questions in the comments section and we’ll do our best to answer them in our full review.

  1. was happy with my z2 and decided to buy m5. just bought one and experiencing overheating. less than 5min with data use and the fon abnormally heats up. what sucks even more is that the shop doesnt have any refund policy. i requested it to be changed to a different model as i was advised that the mediatek processor is what's causing it to overheat plus it's octacore. i just spent so much for a fon that in essence is not allowing me to use data or else i get my hands burned. sony phils service sucks.

  3. I have just bought a sony xperia m5 today and the phone freezed twice.
    also the m5 sometimes sayd, when i wanted to use the camera, that another applicilation was using it so i couldn't use my camera!!
    I'm going to bring it back to the shop tommorow and i dont know if i should get a new one or ask for my money

  4. My advise to the people don't buy this phone, i have bought this phone 4 months ago and i was impressed with this phone but now not turn on and i have tried every way they asked me to turn it on but noway, it's very disappointing and it's happens with many people around the world and if you not believe me you can write on google search (xperia m5 won't turn on) and you will find this. i said this because i don't want to anyone else to have this bad product and for me i will not buy sony product again.
    THIS PHONE TAKE 4 HOURS TO BE FULL CHARGE… VERY BAD

  5. I am using this phone feom a past couple of months and facing issues with battery as it won't last for more then 1-2 hours on gaming. is it normal? it also takes around 3.5 hrs for a full charge.

  6. +Btekt putting aside the price and color, which phone is better (battery,camera,design,durability,softwere+updates)? Sb wants to buy Z5 compact or M5 (btw.how bout fingerprint here and fast charging-is it any help or better?). Welp help. And thanks for great quality review.

  7. This would have been my next phone if not for the shutting down issue. Got the Z5 instead. Hopefully Sony has fixed this already as it really is a solid super midrange phone.

  8. I love your videos, but you have to dig more in the phones, Xperia M5 has 3 speakers, stereo front facing and that mono speaker at the bottom, basically the same as the M4 Aqua

  9. Great video. But may I ask for a comparison video between the M5 & the S5 Neo as they have roughly the same screen size and same price range concentrating on speakers, benchmarks, general performance, battery life and camera. Cheers.
