Xperia C5 Ultra Hands-On_6Sony Mobile unveiled two promising new mid-rangers earlier today in the form of the Xperia M5 (E56XX) and Xperia C5 Ultra (E55XX). We’ve all had a chance to glance over the lovely press shots, but if you want to get an idea how the handsets fare hands-on, then check out the videos (in Russian) below.

Sony has confirmed that both handsets will only arrive in select emerging market countries, so don’t expect to see wide availability in Europe. We imagine Sony will be pushing the newest Xperia Z range in Europe instead once they are announced in the coming weeks.

  • I have a feeling that the presentation was in Russia, and only there. )) Unexpectedly.

    Xperiablog, I want the old mobile version of this website, its hard to opes links when they shrink so much. The old version is light, and not eating my mobile data like crazy. Return it to where it belongs. Thank you

  • shhh

    Agreed, but there’s a button on the bottom so you can opt for the old mobile version.

  • Mohamed adel ali

    could you add English one i don’t know this language

  • Interesting. Two different representative of Sony mobile communications in Russia talk about the different materials the rear panel of the Xperia M5.. I believe more in the second (it’s plastic). And the glass too cool for the middle segment.

  • 3rdflyleaf

    Agree. I like the old version of mobile site. It’s hard to navigate with this new mobile version.

  • dragonsneeze

    Waiting for the photo samples.

  • Amel_Marie

    Even the mobile version is lagging and not stable. I often accidently swipe it to the next topic when im scrolling down to the comments.

  • ryq24

    So based on the pictures and videos above Russia will be one of the first country to get these phones aside from Hong Kong who almost always is one of the first to get all new phones regardless of brands.

  • Jaissal S

    Both of these phones look very cool! I bet people are excited about the C5 Ultra! Maybe the Z5 is around the corner? Maybe not as its so soon after the Z3+. Im still going strong with my Z1 lol.

  • I know C5 Ultra is just mid range but there’s something magical with it that I can’t get it off of my head :|

  • Akand


    M5 is only for selected markets???? I was already planning to grab GOLD one. Won’t it really come to Germany??

  • Akand

    M5 review:
    Sony says: A super mid ranger
    I say: A budget flagship.

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    The last Picture seems like it has an AMOLED display… I mean just look at the Black Levels !!!

  • Thariq Mohammed

    Xperiablog, the new ui is nice, but it not much efficient, it’s take a lot of time to load(take 2x more time than previous) and I think reason for the delay is, first it loads the destop site then convert it to mobile version.
    Please consider the issue

    Thanks for your thoughts. Would everyone mind posting any feedback they have on the mobile site here:

    This will enable us to collate all feedback. Thanks!

  • kido

    Yes please xperia blog switch back

  • iia3ezu

    If it’s a Mediatek ship, it ain’t ‘flagship’. Please wake up.

  • zymo

    Z5 and Z5C leaks!

    Z5 and Z5C leaks!


  • Wolf0491

    the power button has fingerprint scanner?

  • zymo

    yes, that’s what the pic and recents rumors and leaks suggest.

  • Wolf0491

    Glad they didn’t put some stupid button under the screen. much better choice

  • zymo

    indeed, that would look ridiculous.

  • Akand

    Biggest Bottom Bezel ever. Gonna be another flop device. It should have followed C5 Ultra like bezels. So my waiting for Xperia upgrade has no end. Maybe M5, if it’s available in Germany.

  • zymo

    M5 has bigger top and side bezels than Z5 or Z5C. New design will probably appear at MWC along with new SoC.

  • Akand

    You’re right. But it could be considered when you can save about 50% of hard earnings.
    I can consider more bezels, little lower performance if I can have superior camera, premium build quality just paying 50%.

  • Svnjay

    Just like the Y concept.

  • zymo

    50% is little bit übertrieben. According to recent rumors M5 will be priced around 400 EUR. And because you’re living in Germany you have to pay a bit more (430-450EUR).

  • Abdul Ghani

    What the hell sony just killed m5 January is safe to release new.flagship with killer specs like helio x20 2k screen 5.5 inches new sensor with fast capture and all manual controls with raw then there is finger print selfie camera too big battery wireless charging and whatever crap.they can put now no one will buy m5 except me

  • 21187

    bezel is not that big come on

  • Thariq Mohammed

    Xperia Z5 and Z5 compact leak
    Finger print sensor(Z5 display confirms)on power button(z5 compact confirms)

  • SM

    what’d be the pricing for the Indian market for both?

  • Simon Setyadarma

    I think there’s flagship with Mediatek (?) :| Even One M9+ used it

  • Sho Firdaus

    both xperias have smaller bezels than the iphone in the picture. The part with navigation keys is part of the screen, not the bezel. are you stupid or something?

  • First ugliest front camera module otyer than that pretty good second WTF is thisnnew mobilre website it is laggy amd choppy and i often swipe to next article by accident and takes longer to load and is uglier

  • Cristiano de Oliveira

    I want a c5 ultra *-*

  • Stanly

    I really like the back of the C5. No idea why but I do.

  • (??????)donald(??????)

    Little bit 1/8 Google Online Cash .

  • Le Kawaii Potatoe

    Sadly, OnePlus did exactly that.

  • Confruggy look at this. It’s the cover for the M5 shown on the german page. So it probably will be available in germany!

  • Akand

    Maybe I am. But my child who will born after 4-5 years later (hopefully) knows that the part with navigation keys is part of screen.
    Don’t you think the bottom bezel looks bigger on the picture?
    And I would like to request you to think before calling someone stupid. Try to learn some manner, my friend.

  • Akand

    Hoffentlich. M5 gold one is gonna be mine then. For the waiting period for the Sony Flagship equipped SD820..

  • Akand

    Hopefully. But on the picture it looks bigger than predecessors to me.

  • 21187

    Look at the top bezel in the picture – it’s easier to see. Bottom bezel is same size. Clearly they are slimmer bezels than any Z before. Not even a stretch of the imagination would justify saying “Biggest Bottom Bezel Ever”
