The mid-range smartphone market is currently saturated, which wasn't the case even a few months ago. There are a ton of new smartphones in the Rs. 18,000 - 25,000 price range, most with unique features and quite a few touting octa-core processors. Entering the fray is the Sony Xperia M2 Dual, a smartphone which promises good camera performance and long battery life.

Sony Xperia M2 Dual Summary

The Sony Xperia M2 Dual has a Snapdragon 400 under-the-hood and looks good. What it doesn't have is a good screen and camera. The phone does perform remarkably well in the battery-life department, though.

  • Highly overpriced phone from Sony!
    Debojyoti Kundu (May 8, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Sony M2 Dual is a good looking phone completely let down by hardware specs and nonsense Sony pricing. Whereas the original Xperia M cost around 13k during launch, Sony has ridiculously priced it at 21k. Come on Sony..what were u thinking while pricing this product?? At 21k you are offering a 540*960 display with 229 ppi instead of a HD panel, 1gb of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory when Moto G is offering HD panel IPS display with Gorilla glass 3 and 16gb internal memory at 14k. Even the pricing of Galaxy grand 2 is also better than yours considering it has a HD panel and 1.5 gb RAM at similar price . Good design and Sony brand name is not enough to fool customers this day. Should have been priced around 15-16k. Highly overpriced and not good value for money.

  • good phone
    Mathew (May 3, 2017) on Gadgets 360
    I have been using this phone last 1.6 yrs, its awesome, still working fine, performance is good. I have accidentally dropped it 4 to 5 times but not even a single scratch. Camera not so good, gets heated often specially when you surf internet and when you play games. Phone is good but its too expensive
