Sony Xperia M2


The Sony Xperia Z2 is one of my favourite flagship phones this year, thanks to its slick, metal and glass design, superb screen, tonnes of power and brilliant camera. The downside is that all that great technology costs quite a lot of money. If your...

The Sony Xperia M2 has a sleek, attractive design, enough power for your day to day tasks and doesn't cost the earth.

It's got a disappointingly low resolution display and arrives with the old and outdated Android Jelly Bean on board.

Although the Sony Xperia M2 looks pretty slick, it's let down by its low resolution display and its old version of Android, which makes even its affordable price way too high. For much less money, you could snap up the Moto G or spend a little more and...

Sony Xperia M2 review: Dial M for midrange


We are about to explore the Xperia M2, a smartphone with an agenda of its own. Task number 1 is to upgrade the popular Xperia M. Check. The M2 brings a bigger screen (and ups the resolution), the chipset is better and the camera resolution is higher....

4.8" LCD, 540 x 960px, 229ppi, Gorilla Glass 3, ambient light sensor ; LTE connectivity ; 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) ;...

Resolution is relatively low for this screen size ; No Android KitKat on launch ; Non user-replaceable battery

Sony Xperia M2 Review


The Sony Xperia M2 is a mid-range device, which takes an aim at the increasingly-competitive segment of the market. Sporting a potent Snapdragon 400 chip, 1GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera, the M2 is well-equipped to spar with the competition. At...

Attractive design ; Vast arsenal of connectivity options ; Record-setting battery life

Unacceptable call quality ; The display's glass is reflective ; The camera produces low quality stills and video footage ; Way too expensive for what it brings to the table

In conclusion, the Xperia M2 is one truly inconsistent, bipolar device. On one hand, you have an attractive design, adequate processing power, and record-setting battery life. On the other, the display is mediocre, the camera: poor, and call quality...

Sony Xperia M2 Review: same iconic design, more modest package


The Sony Xperia M2 may not have the same impressive specs as its higher-end brothers, but at least it still offers the same iconic design as you'll find on phones like the Z2. Join us as we take a closer look!

Great build quality ; Compact form factor ; Smooth performance ; Exceptional Battery life

Poor camera ; Price ; Low-res display

Sony Xperia M2 review


A mid-range classic in the making, or a phone at the wrong price point?

Flagship design ; Impressive battery ; Attractive Sony UI

Poor camera ; Lower res screen ; Body scratches easily

Sony has launched its Xperia M2 handset into a very crowded market, one populated with ageing flagships and some already impressive new handsets. Can it build upon the success that the Xperia Z2 has brought though?

Sony Xperia M2 review


Our review sample was supplied by Clove which is selling the Xperia M2 for £210.

The Sony Xperia M2 certainly looks like a premium smartphone, but carries a surprisingly mid-range price tag. With a more impressive camera and more storage, we'd be really impressed with the Xperia M2 for that price, but we think you can get more for...

Sony Xperia M2


It looks like an Xperia Z2 but it costs a lot less

Large screen ; Slick-looking design ; Has 4G ; Decent battery life

Low-res screen for size ; Overzealous photo sharpening ; So-so call and speaker quality

The Xperia M2’s colours are a little off too, lacking the pop of the Motorola Moto G, whose colour calibration is a bit better.

Sony Xperia M2 Review: In Depth


The Sony Xperia M2 looks like its premium brethren and packs a wallop at under half the cost. A real bargain and a beauty to boot. Read our review »

Great, premium-aping design ; Good performance ; Feature-packed camera

No KitKat ; Rivals sport sharper screens

The Sony Xperia M2 does a fantastic job of bringing the Xperia Z2 style and some of its awesome features to the mid-range market. The screen may lack the clarity of some of its cheaper rivals, but the design is solid and attractive, the 8-megapixel...

Sony Xperia M2


Sony's flagship Xperia Z2 is one of the most feature packed phones on the market, but it does come at quite a price. If you're after the same slick styling and good looks, the Xperia M2 could be the next best thing, which sports a similar Sony design...

The Sony Xperia M2 is a solid looking phone that’s let down by its software, screen and camera - not to mention its price. It’s far too expensive for the specs you’re given, as Motorola’s Moto G trumps it in several ways for a lot less cash. There’s no...
