Sony Xperia M2 Aqua Review

Sony Xperia M2 Aqua, just as its name implies, is a waterproof phone that proves once again Sony means business when it launches a new smartphone on the market. There have been some unsuccessful waterproof phones launched in the past and probably Sony learned from the mistakes of its competitors, as it was able to deliver a fully dustproof and waterproof device that is perfect if you want to snap some underwater photos. Of course, don’t expect to unravel the mysteries of the oceans with it; the waterproofing feature is guaranteed at depths of up to 1.5 meters in bodies of fresh water. Moreover, the time limit imposed along with the depth one is 30 minutes. However, issues like dropping the phone in a puddle, albeit rare occurrences, aren’t going to affect it at all.

 

Although the Sony Xperia M2 Aqua means business when it comes to dealing with water, this isn’t the only thing that makes the device a great choice when upgrading your Android smartphone. The price tag is quite affordable, especially given the waterproof aspect, but there are also other hardware elements that you need to consider. The device is quite large, even if the screen-to-body ratio isn’t the greatest, at 63%. You get to experience a 4.8-inch screen that is a scratch-resistant IPS LCD one. Its 540 x 960 resolution nets an average of 229 ppi when it comes to pixel density, which is a fair value for the device.

This Android powered device relies on a Snapdragon 400 chipset in order to make things work for you, and you will surely enjoy the performance of the Cortex-A7 quad core CPU, which has a clock speed of 1.2 GHz. The Adreno 305 GPU is the video card that brings your video games and multimedia content to life, while the 1GB RAM memory is enough to perform decent multitasking without worrying about lag.

 

The internal memory of the Sony Xperia M2 Aqua is not the largest, as you will only have access to 8GB of it, but you can expand it thanks to a microSD card slot, where you can fit cards that go up to 32GB in terms of capacity. This memory extension gives you enough space to build a decent multimedia library, whether you are interested in music or other content. Images taken with this phone are on par with those of more expensive devices, even if the 8MP sensor isn’t the largest on the market. You can still take HDR photos and you can make good use of geo-tagging if you want to build a small travel diary. The secondary camera is just a VGA one, but there’s still enough quality for selfies.

 

Battery life is quite significant when it comes to the Sony Xperia M2 Aqua, as you will enjoy a 2330 mAh battery that will provide a bit more than 37 hours of music playback. Be sure to check out the Stamina mode of the battery if you don’t want it wasted when it’s not necessary.

  • The Good :
    Waterproof design, low price tag, quad-core CPU
  • The Bad :
    Non-competitive screen performance
Our score:
4 / 5
