Sony Xperia M4 Aqua

Great camera and durable design.

Unveiled at the Mobile World Congress, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is one of Sony’s latest mid-range offerings. At first glance, the phone shares a lot of design similarities with the popular Sony Xperia Z3. Indeed, like the Z3, the phone has glass front and back panels and rounded corners. While it can be hard to tell the two phones apart from a distance, the plastic band and slightly chunkier design distinguish the M4 Aqua.

One of the major attractions of the M4 Aqua is its durability. Its innovative design protects the phone from dust particles and water. In addition, Sony have made some change to their Micro-USB charging port technology as unlike their other waterproof phones, the M4 Aqua’s port does not need to be protected by port to keep the water from damaging the phone.

Beneath the surface, the M4 Aqua is powered by a formidable Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor complemented by 2GB of RAM. The phone also sports a powerful 2,400 mAh battery which can deliver up to two days of battery life. Like other phones in the Xperia range, the M4 Aqua also has Sony’s innovative Stamina mode which can extend your battery life by up to four times by reducing background activities while the screen is turned off.

If you love taking photographs on your cellphone, you will love the Xperia Aqua M4. On the front of the phone you will find a generous 5MP camera with a wide-angle lens for selfies and video calls. On the back of the phone there is a powerful 12MP camera which has an impressive range of features including HDR, photo burst and automatic shooting. The Superior Auto mode can recognize 52 different scenarios and configure the optimum settings to take a perfect photograph.

Sony Xperia M2

Good-looking mid-ranger.

Released summer 2014, the Sony Xperia M2 is the follow-up to 2013’s popular Xperia M. Aimed at the mid-range section of the cellphone market and packed full of features, the Xperia M2 has a lot to get excited about!

In terms of design, the M2 has a lot of similarities with the early-2014 flagship, the Sony Xperia Z2. The M2 has a sophisticated design with flat panels on the front and rear of the device. However, in order to offer the cellphone at a lower price point, the M2 does not use the same premium materials as the Z2. While the front of the phone is covered by glass, the back panels is coated with a slim layer of clear plastic which gives the impression of glass.

The cellphone sports a 4.8 inch screen which is big enough for watching videos and playing games on, but not Sony Xperia Z Ultra large! In addition, this size screen prevents the phone from becoming cumbersome and difficult to operate single-handed. The display has a qHD resolution which takes advantage of the display technologies that feature in Sony’s Bravia television range.

The M2 has an 8MP primary camera which uses the same Exmor RS technology found in Sony’s lineup of cameras. Exmor RS allows the M2’s camera to perform well in poorly lit conditions by minimizing noise and improving clarity. The M2 also has HDR which allows you to capture clear photos and video footage when there is a strong backlight. In addition, the camera application has a number of creative filters and easy sharing functions.

Although the M2 is a mid-range device, it has great performance. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 1.2 GHz quad-core processor that is backed up with 1GB of RAM which delivers effortless processing without comprising your battery. This is because the quad-core processor is asynchronous which means that it can deliver just the right amount of power needed to perform a task.

One of the most praised features of the Xperia M2 is its great battery life. The phone has a capacious 2,3000mAh battery which can provide enough power to get you through at least a full day and perhaps even longer if you only lightly use the phone. In addition, the Sony Xperia M2 has a Stamina Mode which can dramatically extend your battery life by shutting off all unnecessary processes when the display is turned off.

Sony Xperia T3

Sony Xperia T3

Sony Xperia T3

Great mid-ranger.

Released August 2014, the Sony Xperia T3 is the follow up to the Xperia T2 Ultra which was released the previous year. If you are looking for cellphone with a large screen and a great design, the Sony Xperia T3 may just be the phone for you.

The Sony Xperia T3 has a 5.3 inch screen, while it is not as large as the cumbersome Sony Xperia Z Ultra, it firmly places the T3 into the phablet category of smartphones. While the T3’s 720p screen is not Full HD like other cellphones of a similar price, the display features Triluminous and Bravia TV technology which makes it vivid and very video friendly.

However, like the Z Ultra, the Xperia T3 is incredibly slim. Indeed, it is the slimmest phone of its size in the world. The design of the Sony Xperia T3 is quite interesting as it seems that Sony have merged the traits of their mid-range cellphones with features from its more premium handsets. On the front of the phone there is a glass panel like the Z2, but the back panel of the phone is made from plastic. In addition, like Sony’s flagship devices the T3 features silver accents and metal buttons.

The Xperia T3 is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 Processor and 1GB of RAM. This set-up allows for smooth processing and multitasking. The cellphone is fitted with a non-removable 2,500mAh battery which can provide between two and three days of charge depending on how intensively you use the cellphone. As well as a capacious battery, the Sony Xperia T3 feautures Stamina Mode which helps conserve battery power by turning off unnecessary features when the display is not active.

There is an 8MP main camera on the T3 with a flash which is great for taking photos with. The Xperia camera application is refreshing simple to use. There is a superior auto-mode and a good selection of manual modes for even better photographs. The camera application also has a number of creative filters to experiment with.

The Sony Xperia T3 also has great connectivity options as it supports 4G for super-fast internet. In addition, the T3 also has NFC (Near Field Communication) which allows you to connect seamlessly with other Sony electronics. This allows for easy mirroring and sharing.

Sony Xperia M

Sony Xperia M

Sony Xperia M

Great price, even better specs.

Released in early 2014, the Sony Xperia M is one of Sony’s most notable handsets to enter the budget end of the cellphone market. If you are looking for a cheap Android cellphone with a great range of features, the Sony Xperia M may just be the phone for you!

Featuring a pleasing symmetrical design, the Sony Xperia is not only comfortable to hold but it also looks great. Its distinct blocky design is a refreshing change from other Android handsets. The cellphone is also available in a range of shades, allowing you to pick an Xperia M which matches your personal taste. The Xperia M features a 4-inch 854 x 480p resolution screen which puts it on par with the Samsung Galaxy S2. While this resolution is by no means the best out there, it is perfect for everyday use and browsing the internet.

On the back of the phone you will find a 5MP camera which is complemented by an LED flash. The Sony Xperia photo app has a range of modes and settings that grant users greater control over their photos. One of our favorite features was the HDR mode which really helps improve the image quality and color accuracy. Although often omitted in budget cellphones, the Sony Xperia M has a front-facing camera. While the sensor may only be 0.3MP, it is suitable for the occasional selfie or video call and sets the phone apart from other budget handsets.

One problem with budget handsets is that they often lack power. However, this is not the case with the Xperia M as the cellphone is more than capable of multitasking with its 1GHz dual-core processor and generous 1GB of RAM. The Xperia M also has a respectable 1,700mAh battery which can give you more than 10 hours of talk time. Unfortunately, the cellphone only comes with 4GB of onboard memory. However, there is thankfully a microSD card slot which allows you to top-up the internal memory.

One of the most exciting features of the Sony Xperia M is One-touch technology which uses NFC to allow you to connect your phone wirelessly to other Sony devices. For example, by simply applying your phone to one of Sony’s BRAVIA NFC remote controls you can mirror the content form your Sony Xperia M to you your Sony television. This feature is perfect for sharing photos and videos!

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

The power of the Z3 in a smaller device

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is considered by many analysts to be one of the most feature-packed phones currently on the market. As the name hints, the Z3 Compact is quite comfortable to handle and is comparable to the sizes offered by both the LG G2 Mini and the HTC One Mini 2. Still, it should be noted that the Z3 comes at a slightly larger price than either of these models. Notwithstanding this price variable, there are several notable improvements regarding the Z3 Compact in comparison to the Z1; its predecessor.

Boasting what is known as an OmniBalance design, the Z3 Compact is intended to be comfortable regardless of how it is held or what it is being used for. Additionally, it appears aesthetically pleasing from any angle. Still, we should not forget that the 4.6-inch display is quite large for the diminutive dimensions of the phone. From a purely physical point of view, the Z3 is indeed impressive.

While this smartphone is indeed a mini, there is nothing “mini” in regards to its processing capacity. Powered by a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, users will have little trouble downloading the latest apps or playing their PS3 or PS4 games (a hallmark of Sony phones). When this is combined with two gigabytes of RAM, the Android 4.4.4 operating system will normally run flawlessly (although some have reported crashes when downloading pictures from the camera). The extra memory allows numerous applications to be run simultaneously without needing to reload; an obvious benefit when interfacing with numerous different systems.

From a digital and graphical standpoint, the 20.7-megapixel camera is actually the very same found in the full-size X3. This resolution is backed up by several additional features that Sony has chosen to add. These include an Exmor RS sensor and a “G” lens that is useful when taking wide-angle photos. This camera is also capable of taking videos in 4K mode; a recent trend in many compact smartphones.

From a functional standpoint, one of the main selling points is the ease at which the user can access all buttons as well as a highly responsive screen. The X3 Compact is also equipped with an extremely long battery life. For on-the-go individuals, this is a feature which should never be overlooked.

So, the Xperia Z3 Compact is an ideal phone for those who do not wish to sacrifice functionality for a smaller overall size.

Xperia Z3 is a great choice for those who own a PS4 as the cellphone can be connected to a controller and can be used to access your PS4 using your home Wi-Fi.

Another new feature of the Sony Xperia Z3 is Lifelogging. This application keeps a log of how long you have been doing certain activities. This includes counting the number of steps you take and calculating how many hours you spend running. However, in order to get the most out of this application you will need the Core Smartband to track moments where you do not have your phone to hand.
