very good review, you guys covered everything!
ps. The guy in the 13mp selfies is damn hot, let him know! xd
If you go to camera samples and video samples comparison tool you will discover that M5 is delivering a great photos and videos. It is really Super Mid-ranger, It is really Sony.
How would you rate the photos/videos on the M5 vs Z3c? Especially in low light? Sorry if I missed this, but seems like a relevant comparison.
Guys can we use fast charger on This phone? I am going for this phone but ITS still not released yet in my country.
still cnfuse...which 1 is btter? m5, znfone 2, z3 compact....plz help me
I want to buy this phone....however after it's price drop and final firmware ...The softness around the edges doesn't matter..Obviously you are not taking the pictures around the corner and the main is going to be in the center..So Y won't u care about the edges...I doesn't understand that if it is said autofocus in video are sharp or not...

Moore Welsch, 17 Sep 2015I have doubt with processor. Isn't Mediatek = mediocre ?I agree with you. But this company (mediatek) has worked hard enough for their latest offering so it (Hello X10) gets so much praise and anticipation. Surely a comparison with its SnapDragon counterpart (generation wise, not cost wise) would prove interesting. I in particular are very interested in its "no heating" claim so it'll have to compete with the 820.
the tech nerd, 17 Sep 2015So true bro, I totally agree with you, these early benchmark scores and the camera samples wer... moreHow do think these guys get a hands on on these devices. Manufacturers hand almost stable devices to them so that a hype can be created for the device using the reviews. So, sony is also at fault and its not just gsmarena a lot of tech bloggers get to review these devices
Okay didn't they advertise this one as their midrange flagship? If this is their mid range then it will be interesting to see what they mean by low end
guyz where is the external speaker of this phoe?
I hope the manual mode will be much better than that right?
VoloKin, 17 Sep 2015Gsmarena that's not reviewing, that's beta testing that you've done over here. I know you wann... moreSo true bro, I totally agree with you, these early benchmark scores and the camera samples were used as if to scare of early customers
Moore Welsch, 17 Sep 2015I have doubt with processor. Isn't Mediatek = mediocre ?That was old thinking but new mediatech x10 processor rocks with score around snapdragon 810 without any heating problem
pakya anak, 17 Sep 2015the performance still can unmatched z3 compact....so i will keep my z3 compact or rather upgra... moreThese synthetic scores of m5 will surely change as the chipset used is actually very fast and with no heating problem
Kinp, 17 Sep 2015"The M5 is still plagued by the typical for Sony non-even edge-to-edge sharpness" T... moreYou are right in general, however if you compare the M5 and M4a samples to other phones, the loss of sharpness is more pronounced. It seems the quality of the lenses are not that good, to me. Even without GSMA mentioning it, the sudden circular band of unsharpness is rather obvious.
