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It's got a disappointingly low resolution display and arrives with the old and outdated Android Jelly Bean on board.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 em teste: M de médio

 

Como aposta da Sony para a gama média, o M2 terá dificuldades: a concorrência é grande, e aparelhos como o Moto G provaram que é possível oferecer uma performance melhor por um preço menor. Isso vale sobretudo para o display e para a câmera: a tela do...

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

 

The mid-tier mobile market has become a brutal arena of cutthroat pricing and ever increasing specs. As flagship devices continue to increase specs, some truly capable phones are emerging in their wake in the lower tiers. The Sony Xperia M2 is their...

Sony’s attempt at making its premium technologies available to the masses.

 

The Xperia M2 delivers an enjoyable experience. The software is versatile and the hardware, although modest, is powerful enough to keep the M2 competitive. Unfortunately it can't compete against its rivals at this price point. We're afraid Sony has...

Nice software, Strong connectivity

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?

Hands-on: Sony Xperia M2 review

 

We like the design of the Xperia M2 as you get a device that looks like the more premium models in the family, but you won't pay as much for the privilege. The display was good and the device feels nice and solid in the hand. It would have been great...
