Sony Xperia M4 Aqua Smartphone Review

 

Hot diver. Sony refreshes its waterproof and dust-resistant smartphone series Xperia M Aqua. The Xperia M4 Aqua can convince us in many respects, including the bright 5-inch IPS display with the HD resolution, a fast octa-core SoC from Qualcomm as well...

good, bright IPS HD display, case IP68 certified (waterproof and dust-resistant), clean build quality, wide angle front camera, LTE Cat. 4, Bluetooth 4.1, Android 5.0 Lollipop, fast SoC and a lot of RAM, storage expansion up to 128 GB, decent battery...

tiny internal storage, high temperature development, low contrast & black value too high, a lot of bloat ware, integrated battery, long charging time, plastic susceptible to scratches, camera performance in low-light situations

The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is a compact mainstream smartphone with many good features. We liked the bright IPS display with the HD resolution as well as the color presentation and the good system performance. Other positive aspects are the voice quality...

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua black

 

If style and durability are your goals, then it's worth your consideration. But if you want your phone to do anything more besides look pretty, then it's best to move on.

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

 

The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is a stylish and affordable phone sitting right in the mid-range segment, but borrowing design clues from Sony's top-tier products…

Good looking display ; Good performance for daily tasks ; Great, stylish design ; Water-resistance is a nice extra ; Good call quality

8GB of internal storage is not enough (but there’s a microSD card slot) ; Camera is slow to focus and images turn out mediocre ; Video recording quality is bad ; Slow re-charge times

The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua features one of our favorite designs for an affordable phone: it’s slim and stylish, and while it’s all plastic, it has the looks and feel of a more expensive gadget. This, however, would not mean much if the phone could not...

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua review: should you wait for the Xperia M5?

 

We have a go with Sony's mid-range waterproof smartphone, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua.

: It’s waterproof and its battery lasts for more than a day, but two great features can’t quite make up for its shortcomings. With the Sony Xperia M5 about to launch, and the likes of the Samsung Galaxy A5 bearing down on it, I can’t give a good enough...

Sony XPERIA M4 Aqua Dual Review

 

Typically every year at MWC, Sony announces a new Z series smartphone and many were expecting to see a Sony XPERIA Z4 launched at MWC this year. Well yes, now we do have a Z4/Z3+ however Sony didn't leave the announcements dry at MWC. What we got from...

Good Screen and Sunlight Legibility; Good Music Quality; Good Build Quality; Waterproof; Good Performance

Feeble Loudspeaker (During Calls); Noisy Camera Performance at Night; No USB OTG Support

The XPERIA M4 Aqua Dual is quite a good phone for its price. It was launched at Rs 24,990 but can be found on the internet for around Rs 23,000. It does have a few drawbacks, the most obvious one being lack of USB OTG support and another being the weak...

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua review

 

The Sony M4 Aqua is a cut-price version of the company's flagship Z3 smartphone. Sharing a very similar ultraslim and waterproof design, the M4 Aqua has a large HD display, an 8-core processor and runs Android Lollipop. It could have been a great...

Darn. Things started out so well between us and the M4 Aqua. It just looks so nice. We were really rooting for it. We knew that for the price there would have to be compromises. Most of these are expected and are acceptable - a lower resolution screen...

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua Dual: Water-resistant, good battery; but price could be lower - Tech2

 

We review the water resistant Sony Xperia M4 Aqua Dual smartphone which sports the Snapdragon 615 SoC and a 13MP camera

But looking at the performance and features, it is difficult to recommend the phone specially when there are so many competitors which offer better feature set and performance under the Rs 20k price point. Some of the phones that immediately come to...

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua review: Beautifying the mid-range - Pocket-lint

 

The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is one of the first waterproof smartphones to offer exposed ports, meaning no faffing around removing a flap to reveal the Micro-USB

Lovely design, good performance, great battery life, familiar software experience, microSD support, waterproof

Average camera, display not brilliant, speaker not amazing, max 8GB internal memory (is actually less than 4GB)

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...

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua review

 

The mid-range waterproof marvel

Great waterproof design ; Clear screen ; Very good battery life

Poor performance in some areas ; Only 8GB internal memory ; Some features missing

The Xperia Z4 is still on its way, but while we wait the Japanese brand has taken all the sophisticated design language and shoved it into the mid-range Sony Xperia M4 Aqua.
