Sony Xperia E5 Review


The Xperia E5 seems stronger than ever, with significantly better hardware compared to its predecessor in essentially every area: design, display, power-crunching, and even imaging. On paper, it's a worthy successor...

Signature design ; Good display ; No-nonsense software ; Good performance ; Very decent camera overall

Volume rocker's placement isn't optimal ; Earpiece produces muffled voices ; Camera sometimes messes up white balance

It's not often we get to say this, but it's probably best that, for the time being, you stay put and steer clear of the Xperia E5. That's not because it's a problematic device—the very opposite in fact! As a whole, we were pleasantly surprised by...

Sony Xperia E5 review


The Sony Xperia E5 is a decent mid-range smartphone, with an attractive slimline design. Priced in the competitive mid-range, it's not lacking in any way, but neither does it particularly stand out. We reckon it's a safe choice that won't let you down,...

We've decided to call the Sony E5 a safe choice. It's not an exciting choice; it's not revolutionary or pushing at any boundaries. Nope, but it's very safe. Asked by dave from uk on 19th Aug 2016 We used the standard setting straight out of the box. Reply

Sony Xperia E5 review


Not quite a budget bargain, and certainly no mid-range marvel

Attractive design ; Nice display ; Decent camera

Slow performance ; No fast charging ; Odd volume rocker placement

Awkwardly straddling the budget and mid-range categories, the Sony Xperia E5 doesn't quite do enough to earn a recommendation in either. There's nothing particularly wrong with it, but you can get better smartphones for around the same price.

Sony Xperia E5 Review: In Depth


Sony Xperia E5 Review: Sony's cheapest Xperia phone of 2016 costs just £99, has a 13-megapixel camera & 5-inch HD screen. Here's our full Xperia E5 review.

Decent battery life ; Respectable budget performance ; Rugged

Very basic cameras

Sony’s Xperia E5 is one of the cheapest Xperia phones you can nab these days, but holds up remarkably well compared with rivals like the Wileyfox Spark. Attractive and solid design work, respectable performance and battery life, and a decent HD screen...

Обзор смартфона Sony Xperia E5


Типичный представитель бюджетного сегмента на базе MTK6735 – интересный дизайн, неплохая фронтальная камера (и странная основная), неплохой дисплей, покупать можно, но с оговорками

Громкость звонка хотелось бы чуть увеличить – но уже некуда, вибрация слабая. Качество передачи речи на хорошем уровне, но динамик мне показался совсем тихим, хочется сделать погромче, а все, запас кончился. В рознице аппарат стоит около 13 990 рублей....
