Bought an M5 last night. With the exception of initial installation which became hot, the phone never gets warm compared to my previous z3+ or s6. It runs as cool as my current Note 5.

Still too early to comment on the battery life. As for camera, focusing is fast but picture quality wise, it's just alright. Just not as impressive as the galaxy or note 5 camera. Cannot expect too much since it's an upper midrange phone, imo.

There's a slight stuttering when moving around pages on screen. It's not bad lag but it's there. Wifi reception is great. I'd expect that from xperia phones especially from their upper end models.. Hahaha..

Sound quality is acceptable but not outstanding in any way. A bit teeny high but loud enough. Btw, there's a firmware update ota already.

Yes, there's a slight pause for image processing before the next photo. Also, using touch to capture almost always produce better images compared to using the hard camera button (in my case anyway). I'm certainly not an avid photographer with a mobile phone. So far my photos were taken with the so called superior auto mode.

Tried taken by Sony Xperia M5. The autofocus mode is greatly improved and fast speed detection. I notice that before you shoot you might experience abit grainy effects hope they will solve soon after shooting the image process is much more sharper and natural to real life. Details are much more realistic.

Overall the phone might not be running on the best processor snapdragons but with the pricing given its still a good deals with Sony new camera sensors. Those who dun really wanna spent much. It is just like an Iphone 6 carnations.
