Sony Xperia M5 overview

  • 1Description

Never miss a moment with the black Xperia M5 E5606 from Sony. This photo-friendly smartphone features a powerful camera array that includes a 21.5MP rear shooter and a 13MP front. The cameras are bolstered by several sophisticated technologies, including Hybrid Autofocus, 4K-capability, and 5x Clear Image Zoom, that will help you shoot like a pro.

Under the hood, the M5 is powered by a Mediatek Helio X10 chipset, which incorporates an octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex A53 processor. It comes with 16GB of base storage and 3GB of RAM and supports microSD cards up to 256GB in case you want additional room.

In terms of display, the Xperia M5 houses a 5" IPS LCD touchscreen with a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution that allows you to view vivid 1080p content without pixel loss. The hi-def display is supported by Sony's Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, an advanced contrast enhancer that brings out the details in all your videos and pictures.

Bluetooth 4.1 is available for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as wireless headphones. High-speed 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi lets you enjoy wireless Internet connectivity, and GPS with GLONASS is onboard for using location-based apps and services, such as Google Maps. The Xperia M5's body is rated IP65/68 to be water and dustproof and its integrated 2600mAh battery can deliver up to two days of power depending on use.

GSM / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM networks and is 4G LTE capable. LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband Internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backward compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Note: Not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports. You can check which bands this phone works with in the specifications.
North American Variant / US Compatible LTE
The E5606 is a US variant of the Xperia M5. The E5606's LTE radio is tuned to frequencies that are most often used in the United States and North America. It can also be used in other parts of the world; however, LTE access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network. To ensure this phone will work with your carrier please check to make sure the frequencies your carrier uses are supported by this phone. The full list of compatible carrier frequencies can be found here, the frequencies this phone supports can be found in the product specs.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.
Hybrid Autofocus
The Xperia M5 features multiple photog-friendly technologies, including Hybrid Autofocus, which focus on your target in 0.25 seconds.
4K Capable
The M5 can capture 4K video, meaning you can record every moment in vivid, lifelike detail.
Clear Image Zoom
Get up close and personal using the Clear Image Zoom feature, which lets you zoom up to 5x without losing quality.
Waterproof and Worry-Free
With a IP65/68 water and dustproof rating, you don't have to worry about getting your M5 wet or dirty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Awesome phone The only thing which I don't like is its small memory 16 gigas only
Date published: 2018-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good device for the price Sleek look, solid build. Good price.
Date published: 2018-09-20
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Good. The camera does not have quality as expected, and the phone can not be activated as shown on the carrier's list provided by B&H. Shipping took 19 days, no big deal because I knew it wasn't in stock and ups had a 2day delay, not B&H fault. The phone came with a USB charger, a USB wall adapter, and earphones by Sony. Not my best transaction by B&H but I'll get over it some time. I would rate better if I could activate the phone, I'm in the US zone with the right carrier shown on the list, that's why I purchased the phone...to use it not to have a paper weight.
