It is time that that Sony replies to Motorola’s latest budget smartphone the Moto G, and Sony just utilized the perfect platform, the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2014) and launches the Sony Xperia M2.
Along with the Z2 Sony managed to launch it’s squarish styled budget smartphone, the Xperia M2. This is a 4.8 inch display screen, with amazing finish giving it a perfectly balanced feel to it, similar to the Xperia Z1 Compact which features similar dimensions.
4.8 qHD display having a resolution of 540×960, seems to be pretty decent, though it is an edge bigger than the Moto G(which is 4.5 inches) but the resolution of the G, is a bit better 1280X720. But the pixel density is a bit disappointing, with a figure of 229ppi, which is extremely low(Moto G 329ppi)
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz Quad core processor with 1GB of RAM. Supports 4G like all the latest releases and has a 2,300mAh long lasting battery. It has 8 gigs of internal storage along with an microSD slot for additional storage.
8MP EXMOR RS lens along with flash will enable decent photography and records videos at 1080p, an edge better over Motorola’s Moto G which is only a 5MP one, which records 720p videos.
With a market which is pleased by budget smartphones, Sony has been right on the edge of falling off, but with the release of the Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2(Top end smartphone) and Xperia M(a budget smartphone) Sony may get itself out of the danger zone.
The viable competitors for this device is the Moto G, which according to me, is far more superior, but the wait is for the price tag that Sony labels it with, after that the conclusion could be more specific. So far it is expected to be around 300$(18,000 Indian Rupees).
