So far, all those users who wanted to get a waterproof smartphone, could not do much more than buy one of Sony’s high-end, or the Samsung Galaxy S5, among some others. He Sony Xperia M4 Aqua has come to change that. With mid-range features, a good camera, and water resistance, it aims to take over the market.
You may be one of that select group of people who considers water resistance to be a feature they would love to have on a smartphone. And it is that, as much as some say that it is worthless, there is no rival for a mobile of higher level than water, and that is why water resistance becomes for many something essential. However, paying 700 euros to buy a waterproof mobile is not always an option. Now Sony has launched the Xperia M4 Aqua, a mid-range smartphone that is characterized by having water resistance, in addition to some other notable features of the company. One detail to keep in mind, for example, is that the USB port does not have a cover, but rather the same technology as in the Xperia Z3 is used so that this port does not require a cover that prevents the smartphone from getting wet.
Mid-range, but good camera
For many users, having a quality camera on the mobile is also key. In fact, it is the most valued component when buying a smartphone. Perhaps that is why Sony has decided to integrate a high-quality camera into the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua. And, a company whose sensors are used by all the major manufacturers in the market, must have the phones with the best camera, even if it is a mid-range. What others install on a flagship, Sony installs on the Xperia M4 Aqua, so we find a main 13 megapixel camera, with a 5 megapixel front camera. It should also be noted that the battery has an autonomy of two days, which can even reach seven days with the Ultra Stamina mode. It will not be ideal for a smartphone, but it might be necessary to activate this mode if for some reason we need to save battery. However, what we like the most is its technical specifications. Its five-inch screen with HD resolution is enough for a mid-range mobile, and its 2 GB RAM memory exceeds what we usually see in a mid-range smartphone. In addition, the processor is the obvious one for a mobile of this level, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, with eight cores and 64 bits.
Its price is 299 euros, although if you buy it now, between the months of June and July, you can get it with a Sony SmartBand Talk bracelet as a gift. It is available in three colors: white, black and red.
