Sony Xperia M doesn’t have any of the hardy Z’s waterproof or dustproof survival skills either, with just a scratch-resistant screen to protect your precious.
The biggest corner cut in Sony Xperia M is that there’s just 4GB of internal storage, and only 2GB of that is available for storing apps. You can add 64GB in a microSD card, but the M’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software won’t let you install apps externally.
Sony Xperia M disappointing 5-megapixel camera, which has auto focus but no optical zoom, and the front-facing camera is barely worth bothering with at 0.3 megapixels. No HD video calls on this, although the rear camera can record 720p video.
At 1750mAh it is not the biggest but then again this is not the biggest phone. Screen to battery capacity ratio is pretty good though on the Xperia M and at least a days usage is certainly possible and you may stretch to 2 for the lighter users.
To be honest, if you can afford it, go for the Sony Xperia SP as it is much better than Sony Xperia M.
It has a bigger display at 4.6” with a better resolution. It has 8GB rather than 4GB. 1.7GHz dual-core as opposed to 1GHz, MHL connectivity, 4G and an 8 megapixel as well as the bigger 2370 mAh battery.
