Sony Xperia M5 (E5633)
DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
The Xperia M5 looks just like any other Sony smartphone released in the last three years;the front and back are flat, while the sides are rounded with prominent corners. Unlike the pricier Xperias, the M5 is mostly constructed from plastic.
There's no fingerprint scanning button on the side like on the Z5, replaced by the more familiar circular lock switch. Below that is the volume rocker, and further down is the camera shutter button. The opposite side features a cover that when popped off reveals the SIM card slot and tray for a microSD card.
One of the biggest selling points for the Xperia M5 is that it’s waterproof. This feature is nothing new for the Xperia series, in fact it’s been one of the mainstays since the Xperia Z hit, but it’s still nice to see it sticking around. It's rated to handle 1m of water for 30-minutes.
At 5-inches, the Xperia M5 is fairly typical and some might deem it a 'smaller' phone these days. It still packs a 1080p resolution though, which combined with a smaller size makes for a very sharp display. Aside from the fact it’s an absolute fingerprint magnet, the LCD display is vivid with accurate colours. Viewing angles could be better though as there’s an obvious loss of contrast when you tilt the device to the side.
