'It’s disappointing that Sony hasn’t matched the Z3’s Full HD display, but this is still good for a phone this size, and it matches what the competition currently offers.'
'The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact packs a larger screen than its predecessor in the same size body, it has tonnes of power, it's completely waterproof allowing for underwater photography and it has a good camera.'
'fairly sharp picture'
'Very heavy Android skin.'
'It’s a nice phone, but the only thing that stands out at present is a totally unacceptable overheating problem with the camera. '
'It's a catastrophe for a smartphone maker that prides itself on offering among the best camera experience. '
'On the other hand, we weren't entirely satisfied with the screen's performance under direct sunlight - it seemed washed out and it was difficult sometimes to handle.'
'A rectangular two-sided glass slab held together by a metal frame makes for a premium styling which feels equally nice to look at and handle.'
'With decent hardware and a price tag of around ?300, it is a solid phone. '
'Video recording quality is bad.'
'It will feel comfortable to most users and the Xperia M4 Aqua is very thin and light for a mid-range phone at 7.3 mm and 136 g.'
'the upper half of the rear of the phone became noticeably hot after just a few minutes of even ordinary use.'
'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. '
