Sony Xperia M5
The Xperia M5, which no one expected, is more or less in the same market segment, but couldn’t be any more different. A pocket-friendly 5-inch display and reserved design would make you mistake it for the Xperia Z3+ at first glance, and more careful observation raises the question whether the flagship is worth the premium.
Mediatek’s most powerful chipset to be found in an actual production device powers the Xperia M5 and the 3GB of RAM is just as much as the Z3+ has. What the top model lacks, though, is the new 21.5MP camera sensor, which debuts on the M5. The 13MP front shooter shared with the C5 is also in favor of the M5 and the IP68 certification is another check box with a tick.
Sony Xperia C5 Ultra
The Xperia C-series was conceived as a selfie-lover’s smartphone – a 5MP camera on the front with an LED flash is enough to attract a certain crowd. Ok, what if you up the front cam resolution to 13MP, and bump the display size to 6 inches with almost non-existent side bezels?
In comes the Sony Xperia C5 Ultra, a dream come true for the social-media-obsessed narcissistic folk. Or simply those who can appreciate the vast screen estate inside a relatively compact body and couldn’t care less about selfie-photography.
