Moore Welsch, 17 Sep 2015I have doubt with processor. Isn't Mediatek = mediocre ?obviously the engineers at sony know better than to generalize processors based on their brand.
pakya anak, 17 Sep 2015the performance still can unmatched z3 compact....so i will keep my z3 compact or rather upgra... moreits not supposed to. both phones you mentioned are flagship level and arent supposed to compete with the m5
No OIS ?
the performance still can unmatched z3 compact....so i will keep my z3 compact or rather upgrade to z5 compact
Hmm.. I'm a sane person, still bought Z3+ and so far happy with it especially after the latest. 251 update. Is it really necessary to mock people who bought Z3+?
Is it otg supported??
how is the camera autofocus speed? you don't mention it
"The M5 is still plagued by the typical for Sony non-even edge-to-edge sharpness"
This reviewer needs to know the basic of science and a little bit of photography would help.
You cannot and will never get a perfect sharpness across a photo. Does he/she reviewer know that a camera glass is round, is not 100% flat, so the image project on to a sensor will be sharp in the middle of the frame, but never around the corner edges. Just like a human's eyes.
Ok guys, so... Check your key test findings. You've put "M4 aqua" instead of M5, and "loudspeaker //todo". So yeah, that.
Now regarding the phone, upon reading the introduction i found myself thinking " well, might as well get this one instead pf the z3 compact" (because of the screen that is, and as long as all the other stuff worked properly). But no stereo speakers, no battery test, benchmarks that are as good as nothing until you guys get your hands on the final software... I'm sticking with the Z3 compact.
I agree, this is closer to beta testing. Perhaps you should have waited a bit longer, but as long as you update the review in the battery and performance pages it's still nice.
Also, i dont see anything wrong with the sample pictures... I mean yes, the corners look soft as f*ck, but otherwise the pics look amazing
I honestly want to be fair, and I think overall this is a very capable phone. The photos look really nice with tons of details and polished overall output. I don't see reasons why somebody should do bad-mouthing to it.
Give credit where credit is due.

I have doubt with processor.
Isn't Mediatek = mediocre ?
Gsmarena that's not reviewing, that's beta testing that you've done over here. I know you wanna be the 1st, but with a non-final firmware the only thing you can be objective about is the design and built quality, nothing else.
Sony as ever, don't have the best post-processing in their photos... Despite a new sensor, they still manage to make it look mediocre. And its not even looking good for the battery life.
And where can I find this phone in EU?
I certainly hope so, otherwise it's going to be hard to sell compared to redmi note 2. Sure, you get more megapixels and the IP rating, but is it worth paying double for that, especially when the performance is basically crippled?
Btw, GSMArena has benchmark results for redmi note 2 but no review? At least I wasn't able to find any. Would be an interesting comparison.
Still waiting for the xperia c5 ultra review..
It has been released for about a month now
Anonymous, 16 Sep 2015Does anyone know if this phone will have fingerprint sensor for security?i see round regular power button, therefore might not have finger print sensor.
no wifi what does that mean? ,,
does it means that it cannot connect to any wifi spots?
The benchmark results are to low with Media tech x10 , may be with software update it wiil improve
