Sony has launched two selfie-centred phones, the Xperia M5 and the C5 Ultra. Both of these phones pack a very powerful front and rear camera.

Sony’s M-series has always been supplemented with mid-range specs, but the new Xperia M5 is plethoric with high-end specs.

The M5 camera uses a hybrid auto-focus system to bring focusing time down to a mere quarter of a second. It has a f/2.2 lens and can do up to ISO 3200. It also supports 5x zoom with no perceptible loss in quality and 4K video recording.
