Sony smart phone iterations are largely incremental when it comes to the design and the M4 aqua is no exception to that. The both glass panels really look nice. Although both are finger prints magnets. But the side panels are made of plastic and cheap which looks awkward on your phone. The power button is positioned nicely. The performance of the smart phone is very good with 2Gb RAM which is enough to run more than a couple of apps than one. The Antutu bench mark score is 34287 which is wonderful. It is not at the best but good enough.
The geek bench mark 3 score is 571 on single core and 2313 on multi core. The only problem is that the device gets heated with simple tasks. The pictures taken were quite detail however the camera has a few modes. UI functionality is greatly modified with the small apps which is really good. We have tested games like Asphalt 8, Modern combact, FIFA 15 the games are running pretty smooth with out hiccups it got a 4 star performance score and the graphic details are also good with 3 stars.
Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is the medio core at the best but also over priced because of the waterproofing design. It is a device which feel ok but not too great. It is available at a price range of 22,000/- It runs on the lollipop version which is the latest.
