Sony XPERIA E5 Announced: Hopes for better Xperience??

It's fair to say the budget Sony Xperia E line hasn't had the greatest of times. The Sony XPERIA E was a bit crap, the E2 didn't exist and the E4 ran Gingerbread. But can this shitty classic line of mobile phones turn it around with their newest release? I, for one, doubt it. OBJECTION!
But let's not speak too soon. This new phone runs on android Marshmallow, and looks good. Let's hope it has more market presence than the E2, or I suspect quite a few heads will roll at Sony Xperia's budget division. This phone is likely Sony's last shot at the budget market, and it needs to be good. We hope to get a unit for testing, but our chances aren't looking good the way our relationship is panning out with our Japanese frenemies. In our honest opinion, phone makers need to do something to differentiate themselves from one another, and Sony has failed to do that in recent times, instead choosing to behave like the Asian Apple. This is shown through the clear lack of creativity in their most recent phone, as opposed to the rubbish but cool LG G69.
