Xperia M5 sized up against Xperia M4 Aqua

by XB on 17th August 2015

in Hands On, Xperia M4 Aqua, Xperia M5

wpid-wp-1439844697681.jpegSony Mobile launched the Xperia M5 relatively quickly, especially considering that the Xperia M4 Aqua was only released a few months ago. If you want to get an idea of how both handsets size up against each other, then check out the pics below. They show a Gold Xperia M5 against a Coral Xperia M4 Aqua across all angles. Both are attractive handsets, but which gets your pick? Let us know in the comments below.

    Both are beautiful ,but they are similar and it is hard to know which is which and that it a reason I hope Sony bring new design.
    As for whuch is more beautiful , IMO the M5 withthe gold color is more beautiful ,however when looking on the back if the phone the flash of M5 is on the right of the camera while on M4 aqua it is below it and it looks better below it.
    The M5 has a cleaner look because the USB is on the bottom while on the M4aqua it is on the side.
    I don’t see a SIM flop on M5 so I guess it is next to the SD card on the same flop (which is better )
    TL;DR : M5 is better for Gold, USB place, No Sim flap, but M4 is prettier on the flash place.

    I’ll still get Xperia M5 even if you compare it with Xperia Z3/Z3+

  • Night Guy

    But no stereo speaker -(

  • akzidenz

    True but i think the flash placement was because it had better performance in picture lighting there are maybe the sensor size meant it couldnt be closer

  • Timel

    it is also so to curtail flash ‘bleed’

    This is a mid-ranger…

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Right. I have a Z1 and I consider this is a worthy upgrade than the Z3+.

    Going to have it next week :)

    Actually in photography, the farther the flash is from the lens of the camera, the more flattering the photos can be. Direct flash is not usually good.

  • Matt

    the flash ist flashing the lens 0,0

    phone will always have direct flash which is not good. if you can turn flash away (bounce flash) or add diffuser in front of them it will be better

  • Night Guy

    Actually im confused which should i buy, z3c or m5… m5 seems doesnt have a lot features only good camera and 3gb

  • Night Guy

    Also full hd but will be not much difference cuz z3c got small screen

  • Alessandro Berti

    I choose M4 because I have M4 =) anyway, I suspect M4’s battery life will around 10-15% greater than M5 (M4 2400 mAh vs M5 2600 mAh, but HD vs FHD screen and big.LITTLE vs true8core)

    I can’t wait to get one. I hope the camera does not disappoint.

  • Da Fuq

    Wait for reviews. The M5 has a new camera, so hopefully it will be much better than the entire Z series.

  • Itsarapong Intoum

    Let check the priority then.

    If the camera is your main priority then the M5 of course a better choice. especially if you love to selfie :)

    otherwise go for Z3C :)

  • I got M4 when it came out so I’ll stick with it. Nonetheless. M5 is an awesome phone too. Just a shame they’ve released it 2 months after M4. Seems kinda soon, but oh well.

  • Great Dude

    Everybody flag and ignore.

    There is no official Xperia blog, but there is however an official Sonymobile blog which there I didn’t find your claim and that is why I flagged you because of sending wrong info to people or in another word (TROLLING).

  • Great Dude

    Maybe a further flash is better and that make some sense ,however aesthetically I think that further below is better than further to right side.

    It will be even better if they make a circular around the flash or increase its size.
    Of course that is for me, maybe others will see it more beautiful that way.

  • jxPerience

    Z3c better, M5 is very big compare to other 5″ devices

    Sony Malaysia has announced the price for Xperia C5 Ultra and Xperia M5 for RM1399 and RM1599 respectively.

  • that’s a sad hobby.

  • costunga

    I’d love to see M5 in Europe…

  • MoYeung

    Some people have claimed M4 has overheating issue, can anyone confirm?

  • Timel

    Of course it does, the camera of M5 will disappoint you definitely

  • Timel

    C5 ultra is ugly, I’ll go for M5 which has better specs and it’s not too huge but so bad that the M5 comes up with bulky bezels…

  • Alessandro Berti

    The last software update took a big step in heat management .. Let’s say, with the “reduced power” option in the Stamina mode there is no perceived heat, without you could feel some heat but not unbearable.

  • r41nier

    well reflections appear if the flash is parallel to the direction of the lens. so being farther from the lens means there is lesser chance of reflection. reflection may be lessened but diffusion and softness is not improved. softness depends on the size of the light source while diffusion depends on the distribution of light.
