Not very good at all
The Xperia M5 really is a let down. The exterior and display are very tempting at first glance, but once you get into the details a lot of key specs are lacking. Sony seems to have splurged all the budget on the design, display, and front-facing camera, leaving the Xperia M5 severely lacking in processing power when compared to similarly priced and even cheaper rivals. On top of this, the rear-camera isn’t going to impress many and the battery life is quite bad for this price class. The long and the short of it is despire an appealing outer shell, do not be fooled, you can do a lot be... Full review
A handsome handset with decent specs
Small body with great capabilities
The best Sony smartphone until now
Nicely built, performs well in general use
Battery and display impress, camera does not
Another solid Xperia
Competent but not the best in the business
Loaded to the brim with compromise
I HATE this phone!
Always getting error messages when going online. Storage space is far too small to handling more than 2 apps. Huge waste of money!Less
It's ok because
The screen is dull and the lighting when taking a photo really dull and sometimes the buttons get stuck when pressing!Less
Worst phone i ever owned
phone often freezes apps pop up by themselves you have to remove battery to reboot when freezes. now phone will not charge this phone is only 6 months old. poor picture quality when you use the cameraLess
Very Poor Camera
Worst camera i have seen, i have old Samsung S2 that has much better camera then this stupid 13mplx camera, i am very disappointment from Sony, from today i will never buy any product from Sony.Less
I hate it.
Overheating makes the phone frozen constantly. Not existent warranty. I had Sony in great esteem until now. Total waste of money and effort to fix this phone.Less
Serious memory issues...
Basically, because the onboard memory is partitioned as phone and internal memory, and very little will use the internal memory, no app from Sony, Google, no Facebook, Twitter and so forth, you rapidly run out of space on the phone memory, while having a gig + sitting doing nothing on the internal... Ok, the music player is well specced, but my cheapo, entry level LG III, at half the price, which I bought the Sony to replace, runs rings round it in every other department... I gave the Sony to my partner, who uses it as a phone, which it's quite good at, and as a BBC Radio iPlayer handset, and while iPlayer seems to be one of the few apps that transfer to internal memory, it seems to store downloads on the phone memory, or both! So problems there too... Taught me to be more questioning about the internal set up of a phone, but will avoid Sony in future...Less
good camera back and front and best display..5.5 SONY is best productLess
Good phone with junk screen.
I finally decided to upgrade from my previous Xperia Arc due only to speed/storage issues. Being so happy with the previous Xperia, which I had for 3-1/2 years & took a beating, I decided to stick with this product line & got the Z3 Compact. In my first month, it fell out of my chest pocket while bending over at about 1'. The screen totally fractured & the phone is now useless. In searching Google, there are substantial reports of similar failures. This phone is far too fragile to last out your contract. This is nowhere near as robust as my previous.Less
I hate it kinds is slow maybe because of just 1 GB ram but over all happy with it . use a task killer and I only keep 2 process in the background that makes it little bit more faster... Over all happy with this $250 phone so I can use straight talk and get out of contract crap...Less
Worst phone ever on voice quality. Not recomended
Bought this phone at Windmobile, started having issues right from the first day. Lots of issues with phone line, static, inconsistent voice quality, bad speaker phone quality, when call end button pressed it would take 3 to 4 seconds to end the call. After 3 weeks of usage it's gone to warranty. Even Wind staff not recommending this phone to anyone... don't go for this phone even if it's free...Less
