BQ Aquaris M5 review

 

Can BQ make the big leagues?

With a sizeable battery, strong processor, pleasant design, quality screen and surprisingly good audio, the Aquaris M5 makes a great impression. But with some bugs and quirks, an average camera and oddly variable pricing, it has some annoying niggles.
