BARCELONA: SONY UNVEILED the Xperia M4 Aqua smartphone at Mobile World Congress (MWC) on Monday, an entry-level waterproof smartphone that offers IP68-certified submersible features for under £250.
Sony said it launched the mid-range waterproof handset in a bid to “reboot” the mid-range phone market.
We got a hands-on at the show to see just how well this budget device translated to real world experience.
The Xperia M4 Aqua has a very similar design theme to the rest of the Xperia Z line-up, and reminds us a little of a slightly bigger version of the Sony Z3 Compact, which in terms of design is no bad thing.
It fits nicely in hand and the material it is made with means the device feels comfortable to hold, albeit a little cheaper than its higher end counterparts, as you’d expect. It still feels pretty decent for a device of this price point.
