'If you need a good-looking phone in this price range which will last up to two days on a single charge, then by all means consider the Xperia M2. '
'Using a large screen and flashy design means the Xperia M2 can easily pass for a top-end phone at a glance. '
'We found that it could last for two days of normal use between charging. '
'Screen isn't competitive.'
'the sound that came out of its speaker was disappointing and muffled.'
The Sony Xperia M2 Aqua is a new water-resistant version of the original 4.8-inch Android smartphone, great news if you like snorkelling.
'Camera is sub-par, sorely lacking in detail.'
'One other pretty rubbish element of the screen is what it's made of.'
'You need to get around the 300ppi mark to get really good sharpness, and the Moto E does better the Xperia E1 despite its larger screen with 256ppi.'
'It’s not a terrible screen but – you guessed it – the Motorola Moto E offers a much better one. '
'all key are easy to feel and press without looking, with deep and clicky feedback to them.'
'Noise cancellation worked well in my tests, as the Z Ultra blocked out a good amount of loud street noise, but I did notice a persistent hiss. '
'It's almost impossible to reach anything in the top half of the display or on the opposite side to your hand.'
'While the overall footprint of the Z Ultra is large the sheer thinness of the phone is very impressive. '
