Sony Xperia M Purple - Expert Reviews


With their flagship device Sony Xperia Z out of the way, the firm has released another Xperia model with Sony Xperia M that belongs to the mid price range. It seems like all the big companies have timed their products conveniently with HTC Desire U and Samsung's Mega Series ready to go head to head with each other. The Xperia models have done very well in the country in the recent past, with great touch screens and resolutions along with, clean and classy designs. There have been some criticisms against the company for their overpricing of devices, but people still seem to buy them. The Sony Xperia M has a 4-inch TFT capacitive touch screen that unlike its predecessors does not have the bravia engine technology for support. Still the screen is impressive like it has always been with Sony, though it still falls short of the HTC Desire U, in terms of clarity and color clarity.

The display is scratch resistant which does make it score over other displays that have the frequent problems of finger marks. Taking into consideration the dimensions of the device, Sony Xperia M has a length of 124mm, breadth of 62mm and height of 9.3mm, and weighs 115 grams. The software platform is excellent with the latest Android Jelly Bean, while the hardware too, is imposing with the 1GHz processor and 1GB RAM. Therefore, the device comes pretty close to being termed lag free. The 1750mAh standard lithium-ion battery somewhat ends the trend of the terrible battery life that Sony is infamous for.
