Sony Xperia M4 Aqua officially available in the US for just $199.99 (unlocked)

$200 is not a brad price for what the Xperia M4 Aqua has to offer, starting with the fact that it's a dust- and water-resistant smartphone - we don't get to see many of these at this price point. Running Android Lollipop, the M4 Aqua sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor. Other features include a 5 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, microSD card support, and a 2400 mAh battery. There's also US LTE connectivity on board (compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile, but not with Verizon and Sprint).
The Xperia M4 Aqua will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but it's not clear exactly when that's going to happen. Check out our Sony Xperia M4 Aqua review for a closer look at the smartphone.

It has VERY bad product quality (consistency). Seen so many have to return or go to warranty here (Vietnam)

It would be much better if you can show the complete data from a trusted source. I know some people are just trying to help by providing useful information but without a proof from reliable source it will only make you sound like a hater because you can find the same story about the other phones from other OEMs.

M5's helio soc have lots of issues. Shuts down and have inconsistent battery drain issues like blackberry z10. Stay away from helios, m4 aqua 16gb is still a better deal. The only nitpick I can say with m4 aqua are the big top and bottom bezels but that's forgivable to others.

Oh....that figures. Good that it isn't really available in NA to my knowledge. Just read an review on the M4, the device is great for its price. Just go unlocked, get a microsd and you're set. Flash a custom ROM if necessary. If only the Moto G had the 615 as well...insta buy.

For $200, it's way better than the Moto G.

So for the same price you'd rather get a phone with 1gb Ram + Snapdragon 415 vs this with 2gb RAM + Snapdragon 615.

It is cheap for the price.If you dont play games m4 aqua is the perfect device. I used the device and my experience was great.better than the old Z .but almost good as Z2. Only cons is that adreno 405 sucks in gaming. Camera quality is fabuluous actually way way better than moto G 2015. Yes it is true,m4 has less issues than m5. i am so sad that,sony made a good camera for the device.but not having great,gaming experience. Sony usually goes wrong in atleast something of their e ,m,c,t series. Only the Z series has no cons.
