Sony Xperia M Dual REVIEW:


Sony seems to get back in the competition by offering high end devices like Xperia Z, Z Ultra, Z1 etc. and the series was mainly appreciated for performance and mostly the beautiful design. Now it entered the budget and mid range segments too by offering some new phones like Xperia C, Xperia M dual etc. Today we have the Xperia M dual in the sub 15k segment, which comes with a dual core processor and follow the same design as the of Xperia series. Let us find out more about the phone and how it performs in the real world.

Design & Display:

As said earlier, the design follows the similar concept of Xperia series but not exactly the glass back design. The backpanel is actually made of good plastic and is removable. The backpanel has a slight curve and the matte surface feels so good to hold. It’s pretty thin at 9.3mm and also feels lighter at 115gms. The overall is design is pretty decent but bezels could have been reduced a bit. The phone sports a 4inch TFT screen with 480x854 resolution and 245ppi. Viewing angles aren’t that great and colors look okay. Brightness levels are not sufficient and the front glass is somewhat reflective.

User Interface:

The device comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and users can upgrade to 4.3 Jelly Bean. Most of the UI feels stock but Sony has done good amount of its own tweaks to the UI and it feels almost similar to the UI found in Xperia Z. There are some themes where it changes wallpapaers and icon colors correspondingly. The lockscreen can be customised and you can also have music player controls. The notification panel has few toggles and Sony has added some of its own custom widgets. Overall the UI feels lighter but sometimes you can observe sluggishness which is not so often.

Camera & Audio:

The device is equipped with a 5MP auto focus camera with LED flash at the back and a VGA cam at the front. The camera UI is pretty much similar to what we have seen in the latest Xperia phones. Sony has added a bunch of scene modes, options and tweaks to experiment on the picture. Image quality is not so good. Color reproduction is average but still the images captured have a good amount of detail. The camera can also record videos of 720p at 30fps and the quality here is also pretty average. Audio output is very good and clarity is pretty decent but loudness levels could have been better.

Connectivity & Additional Features:

The phone comes in both single sim and dual sim versions and you need to use micro sim card for this phone. Network reception is good and we didn’t face any call drops. Call quality is a decent. Though there is a good amount of clarity in in-call audio, loudspeaker is not so loud enough. The phone also supports Wifi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.0, FM Radio, 3G, NFC and A-GPS. Internal memory is only 4GB out of which you get somewhere around 2.5GB available for storage. The device also supports micro SD cards upto 32GB.

Processor & Battery:

The device runs on Snapdragon S4 Plus chipset with Dual-core 1GHz Krait processor, 1GB RAM and Adreno 305 GPU. Though the device runs smoother in UI, occasional hiccups can be observed during multi tasking or using heavy apps. The device scored pretty average in benchmark tests, with around 9K in Antutu and 4k in Quadrant. Some of the heavy games are playable well but occasional frame rate drops are observed which is not quite often. The battery capacity is of 1750 mAh and the battery is removable. This is quite average when compared to the batteries equipped in the latest phones and the phone easily last till evening of the day. Put on the Stamina mode and you can get easily for more than a day.


Decent design
Thinner and lighter


Camera is not so great
Low internal memory
Screen resolution lesser compared to latest rivals


So far, the Xperia M has its own share of considerable pros and cons. With most of the latest rivals having better specs and performance, Xperia M leaves a lot to be desired. The decent design and thin profile might feel appealing, but average camera and most importantly lesser internal memory are not something to adjust with. For the price you have lot of other phones in the segment which offer something better. So if you’re looking for a device in this price range, the device could be decent enough but make sure to consider the rivals.
