Sony Xperia M4 Aqua with Advance Features
A lot of people were raving about Sony’s Xperia Z3 last year which came with stunningly sleek design and was waterproof as well. But it came with a high price tag. This time though, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua seems to be a much more affordable version of Sony’s Xperia series. However, the internal specifications have paid the price and the phone has been toned down a bit. Nevertheless, it still is waterproof, has Xperia’s beautiful body and a 4G LTE.
Though the official release hasn’t been confirmed but Sony is set to launch the phone this Spring and will be available for Rs. 20,675
The design will remind you its predecessor Xperia Z3, and this isn’t bad at all. It has a glass front with identically rounded edges along all the sides. In fact, from some distance, you might not be able to tell the phones apart. But move a little closer and you will find out that the band is of plastic and not metal, as in Z3. It is slightly thicker than Z3 at 7.3mm thick. It borrows other features from Z3 such as a plain back design, minimalist Sony branding and standing-out silver power button. It is waterproof meaning it can survive all the accidental spills or you can take the phone to the bathroom without worrying about dipping it in water. A physical camera button outside means you can take photos underwater. Even the Micro-USB port doesn’t need a rubber port to keep the water out.
The smartphone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with an octa-core chip and is supported by 2GB of RAM and powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop. The 5-inch display has a 1280×720 pixel resolution which isn’t much to cheer about because the screen isn’t fully HD. But it does give you a crisp and bright display. Sony claims that the battery can run for two days and the phone sure does have a long battery life. There is a 13 megapixel camera at the back which can take amazing photos. The 5 megapixel front camera also lets you take better selfies.
