Sony Xperia M is now official with 4-inch screen, dual-core processor, Exmor RS camera

0. phoneArena 04 Jun 2013, 04:05 posted on

Ladies and gents, meet the new Sony Xperia M smartphone, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean! What the "M" in its title stands for is not clear, although "mid-range" would be a fitting guess as that's the category this smartphone belongs to. It packs a 4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480 by 854 pixels, a dual-core Snapdragon processor, and a 5MP Exmor RS camera that can capture 720p video at 30 frames per second...

This one should be the successor of Xperia J, Heck, Xperia J isnt even 1 year old yet but it lags even in normal homescreen navigation, i hope this one is a lot better. Good to see more colors being offered.

I guess this will be quite good. After all, the Xperia J is powered by Snapdragon S1. Didn't even know that that exists..... And this is by Snapdragon s4. Quite a huge different.

I bought a Sony Xperia M a month back. There is some camera problem with the model. always i take a picture from the camera it comes with bluesh colour. due this the actual colour of the picture got changed. i register a complaint to customer care and brought the phone to service centre, they replaced the camera but the problem is not resolved. i think all the phone with same model are having same problem.
I bought Sony phone as i heard that sony is the market leader in camera quality but i think i wasted my money.
Is there any option to replace the phone and i can go for some other model of sony phone. My Complaint Number/Ticket Id is 13123100782 (31st Dec 2013) and my Job number is W113123100782 (1st Jan 2014). My Contact details :- Vikas Sharma, Mobile number : 9311566760. Request you to please do the needful as on urgent basis. PLEASE HELP ME

Not really. Sony already released Xperia E which is priced same as Lumia 520.
But the Lumia 520 has much better specs
(WVGA vs HVGA on Xperia),
(8GB vs 4 GB),
(5 MP vs 3.2MP on Xperia),
(S4 dual core vs old single core) etc..

I think this is lumia 620 competitor.

That's bases on specs alone though...I guess some people would prefer android...others would prefer wp

But Lumia 520 is huge success while Xperia E is a flop at least in India.

The reason is specs are very bad for what you are paying.
HVGA screen and android lags like hell on those old processors.

But the processor on this new Xperia M should be good.

true that!
xperia j, xperia e and the recently released xperia L is a complete fail where i live. and this xperia m will follow soon.

good exterior, sh!t interior.
even the s4 mini has better resolution and ram and bang for the buck than this.

and most importantly sony is overpriced compared to other low end phones.
