Reviews for the BQ Aquaris M5.5

80% BQ Aquaris M5 review
Source: Techradar English
The Aquaris M5 is the spearhead of a new mid-range crusade, and it has a lot going for it. With a big battery, Android Marshmallow, a good processor, a healthy serving of RAM and a lovely screen, it compares well to most of the competition. Yet with a camera that is mostly average and some bugs and other issues on the software side, it needs a little more polish. Moreover, if BQ wants to make any real headway in the UK, it will need to adjust its pricing. The Aquaris M5 can be had for as little as £150, but it takes some effort to find it at this price.

The BQ Aquaris M5 is a fantastic phone, which offers fantastic sound reproduction, impressive camera abilities and an untamed Android experience all for an affordable price. It's hard to fault this budget smartphone, which has only recently entered the UK market.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 405: Integrated graphics card for ARM based SoCs. Depending on the used SoC the clock rate is around 500 MHz and features 48 unified shaders.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

615 MSM8939:

Mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU cores (Cortex-A53, 64-bit capable) and an Adreno 405 GPU. Manufactured in a 28 nm LP process.

5.5":

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.162 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


BQ:

BQ is a Spanish company of the Mundo Reader S.L Group, which develops smartphones, tablets, 3D printers and robots.

The market shares are low and mainly concentrate on Europe. The number of reviews is quite low and the achieved ratings are average (as of 2016).

A Russian company with the same name sells smartphones. This BQ is independant from the Spanish brand.


76.75%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
