Sony Xperia M2 is the successor of last year’s popular mid-range device Sony Xperia M. Sony Xperia M2 is better in every aspect compared to Sony Xperia M, which is good. Now Sony Xperia M2 comes with a bigger and higher resolution IPS LCD screen, better processor, better camera, better design, and better battery life. But is it worth buying? Let’s find it out.
The Xperia M2 Dual has Dual SIM with Dual Call support (but without the LTE connectivity)
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (planned upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat)
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 processor, Adreno 305 GPU and 1GB of RAM
8MP camera, single LED flash, 1080p video recording, dedicated hardware shutter key
VGA front-facing camera with video recording
8GB of built-in storage, expandable via the microSD card slot
Active noise cancellation with a secondary microphone
2,300 mAh battery; STAMINA Power Saving Mode
So as you can see from the specs list of Sony Xperia M, it comes with the same mid-range specs that all other mid-range devices come with. The only downside about Sony Xperia M2 is its screen resolution. 4.8-inch screen with qHD (540x960px) is simply not acceptable on today’s date. Even in the fewer prices, you can get up to 1080p display smartphones in the market. But having said that Sony Xperia M2, comes with great battery life. Sony Xperia M2 can give you up to 16hrs 40min of talk time, 9hrs 48min of web browsing and up to 10hrs of video playback.
So it is worth buying? That depends on your taste. If you are okay with the display resolution and looks and design is your main priority than yes go for it. If you want at least 720p display and performance are what you want from your device then go with Motorola Moto G 16GB or Samsung Galaxy Grand 2. But wait! there is some more. Right now you can get sealed packed Sony Xperia Z around 38,800 from Aamachhori.com. Though Sony Xperia Z is a year old device it comes with a 1080p resolution display, powerful CPU and GPU, better camera and water resistance features. So this deal makes it even more complicated.
