The fact that Chinese brands have come into India and displaced everyone else is indisputable and inescapable. We've said it so often that it's becoming fatiguing. Yet it's the truth, and it shapes the landscape against which every company, from tiny Indian import houses to giant multinational conglomerates, must now operate.

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua Dual Summary

Sony has chosen to emphasise features rather than specifications for its new mid-range offering, the Xperia M4 Aqua Dual. This phone doesn’t have the fastest processor or sharpest screen, it does offer a few compelling advantages. Most importantly, it’s waterproof and dustproof (within reasonable limits), but it also offers a great camera and excellent battery life. We were impressed with its ability to work after being left in water for a while, and photos came out well too. While it lagged behind some of its new competition in terms of benchmark scores, it lasted very nearly 10 hours in our video loop battery test. This is not the best phone for those obsessed with speed, but it will do very nicely for those who look for overall quality and capabilities.

  • No Value For Money
    Padma Bhojan (Sep 11, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    I bought this mobile for 24k in Bangalore, and dint actually use it for the first 10days waiting for nano sim and other mobile accessories. From 11th day, the time when I started using the new phone with lots of excitement I started noticing issue with clarity of speech and heating problem. Camera is also not that great as compared with any other device. Approached the dealer to replace, they said replace option available only for the first week. Started living with same problem for few more days and noticed the mike is completely gone, got to hear nothing from the other side. Also handset wasn?t receiving signals at all ... Handset is with the service station for already 15 days and managed to see lots of customers in service station with crying and angry faces. Sony, you lost your credibility because of mobiles. Highly disappointed with the handset and service. People say NO to Sony mobiles.

  • Not Water Proof- Total Waste of Hard Earned Money
    Shivarpit Katoch (Jul 31, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I bought this 'wonderful' mobile 6 months back. Due to my running and cycling activity, I sweat a lot and so this was best option being 'water proof'. It worked well during all my activities. It used to get hot and I washed it under tap for 2-3 times to my curiosity and no problems. About 20 days back, I went for cycling and got caught in monsoon showers, rest of my cyclist friends covered their mobiles in protective wraps but i kept mobile in pocket and cycled for half an hour in rain. As soon as, I reached home and took out my mobile, it was dead and didn't start again. I took it to Sony service center and when I mentioned this mobile is 'water proof', I was told it is not water proof but ' water resistant'. The phone was kept for 10 days at Sony service centre, Wave mall sector, 18 Noida and returned to me without any repair. To my shock,I was told to take it to some local repair shop. Hard earned money wasted without any repair....feels really bad.
