Sony Xperia M4 Aqua review
- Great waterproof design
- Clear screen
- Very good battery life
- Poor performance in some areas
- Only 8GB internal memory
- Some features missing
The M4 Aqua is a decently priced smartphone that does a lot of things well, and a lot of things not so well. This can sometimes mean it's hard to decide whether or not a phone would be particularly suitable for certain people, but in this case the stars have aligned and it actually makes the decision a bit easier.Do you want a phone that covers the basics well, throws in some nice features like 4G and NFC and also looks nice? Do you only use your phone occasionally but when you do, you need to know that it will have kept its battery?Then the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is definitely worth considering, and if you bought it for those reasons you wouldn't be disappointed at all.A decent smartphone with some performance issues
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua
- The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua's slick, minimalist design is very similar to that of the top-end Xperia Z3. Its waterproof body makes it usable in the shower, and its capable processor handles the essentials well.
- The camera is truly awful, making it a bad choice for anyone keen on photography. There's a pitiful amount of storage, and Sony's insistence on bundling apps and widgets makes the phone cluttered right out of the box.
The M4 Aqua starts well with its luscious looks and affordable price, but the abysmal camera and storage woes quickly take the shine off an otherwise decent handset.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua review: Beautifying the mid-range
- Lovely design
- Good performance
- Great battery life
- Familiar software experience
- MicroSD support
- Average camera
- Display not brilliant
- Speaker not amazing
- Max 8GB internal memory (is actually less than 4GB)
Conclusion We love the look of the M4 Aqua and how, despite being predominantly plastic, it offers much the same design as Sony's flagship Xperia devices. It's a charming smartphone, especially in the coral colour as reviewed here, which almost tricks you into thinking it's part of the flagship line thanks to its metallic coat of paint.It's not all just about looks either, with decent battery and solid performance outpacing its sub-£200 price tag - and much of the competition. However, the lack of internal storage, along with an average display and average camera do bring it down a peg or two.Overall the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is a good mid-range smartphone, made even better by full waterproofing. That's one feature to make it standout in among the madness of the mid-range market, and therefore well worthy of consideration.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua review
Conclusion The mid-range smartphone market is always tricky, especially with budget devices getting so good. If you are looking for something around this price, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is a solid choice although the Honor 6 is worth a look for extra features. It offers flagship-like design, a great camera and a user-friendly Android Lollipop.
