The difference is M5 is super mid-range phone at mid-range price while M9+ is super mid-range phone at flagship price. :-p
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2015M5 just a mid-range, not flagshipIt's a high end phone yet sony calls it "super mid range"
Flash, 12 Aug 2015Unfortunately M9+ photos look much better...So you already tested a M5 with the new camera sensor and all?
Stop the BS...
Not interest with camera phone anymore, already got Sony Mirrorless hehehe
C5 Ultra is my next phone
AnonD-292864, 12 Aug 2015I don't see any difference.You must be blind
Yeah the Xperia M5 is not the first phone to use phase detection, but its sensor has more PDAF points (192 AF points spread accros the entire frame) than most phones like S5, S6 or iPhone.
So it will be better for autofocus tracking wich really important if you trying to take pictures or videos of moving subject.
look nice, but knowing Sony they totally mess up software and algorithms.
The same was before, before launch with testing software everything look pretty good, and after everyone get their phones... totally mess, FC after using effects because of heat, weird working HDR, lack of details, HUGE compression etc etc...
