Description

The Xperia M2 Aqua seems to package the best of Sony's Xperia apps and experience in an affordable device, but it might be underpowered to handle it all. The phone features 4.8-inch qHD display (540x960 resolution at a lowly 230 ppi pixel density), the so-so Snapdragon 400 processor with Adreno 305 graphics and 1GB RAM. There is an 8 megapixels camera with HDR on the back, as well as a humble 1.1MP front-facing camera, and mono speakers.
