M4 offers little new from Sony, but stuck with far too little memory.
The m-series from Sony is a little problematic. While the Z-series belongs to the absolute top tier with both design as performance that justifies the price tag and E-series belongs to the slightly more expensive budget segment with a really good balance between price and performance, the M-series never found quite right. Often the price tag a bit too high in terms of specifications and the phones ‘ actual performance. At the same time, it is a tricky price range just above the budget headset as the M-series are struggling in, where it’s always been difficult to find the balance regardless of manufacturer.
Xperia M4 make in each case a good try. Just like its predecessor, is the trump card this water resistance that has become a bit of Sony’s hallmark. The news here is, just like with Xperia Z4 Tablet, the USB connector made watertight without the need for a protective cover in front. It provides significantly less wear on the cover, much simpler charging and the magnetic contact that would otherwise have been commonplace at Sony for charging has been removed. Whether the charging plug keeps water resistance after prolonged use remains to be seen, but there should not be any problem, according to Sony.Just water resistance is default for Sony, which means that it can swim if necessary, but mainly it’s about injuries that spilled the glass, the spigot in the dass (apparently more common than many people think) and sweaty workout doesn’t involve any problems or concerns.Just for the training portion supports your phone also ANT + heart rate monitor, among other things, if you don’t already own such with Bluetooth (which of course also supported by handset).
The phone itself takes design cues from both Z2 as Z3-series and feels in many ways familiar. Here can be found one of the other main points of the phone, namely the screen at five inches. Simply a little larger size than previously traditionally for lurking in this price range, although it hardly begins to be unusually long. The resolution is set to 720 p, which still must be considered as approved and even if we do not get any wow-feeling of the picture quality, we have hardly anything to complain about when it comes to the screen.
On the flip side we find one of the pieces that would otherwise been scaled down from the Z series, namely a 13 megapixel camera instead of traditional 20.7. However, such images are fully approved, even if we never directly raises an eyebrow over the quality. However, what is funny is that the camera software is largely the same as the Z-series, minus the filming in 4 k resolution. This means that you have a variety of different camera modes both pre-installed and available for download to customize and add some fun to your subjects with even the front camera should have wider catchment area to improve them if you’re the type who likes that sort of thing.
On the inside we find Snapdragon 615 combined with two gigabytes of RAM. It provides 64-bit operations and eight processor cores in two clusters to operate your phone around with.
Performance in the test package are the same level as the Xperia Z1 or Accelerometer. At the same time, it goes a bit after HTC M8s, who is also running on the same systemchip. At the more practical use, we should not say that the lags or feels slow somewhere directly, but compared with the very fastest, you of course have to wait a little extra on that apps should open or menus to load.
Xperia M4 available in two versions, with 8 or 16 gigabytes of storage. Unfortunately, the former model who found their way here and then a quite significantly overweight variant. Of the eight gigabytes available, only puny 1.5 gigabytes that the user himself has to economize, and that’s after we uninstall the bloatware that runs the uninstall from your phone. Considering that Sony does not do too much extra mischief in the form of own launchers and similar in their phones, it feels very hard that there is so little memory available. In addition to the smart function will have a few småappar floating on the screen on top of the standard apps, it does not feel like the camera effects Sony built in justifying the system takes up to much of your memory.
On the other hand, it is said that Android 5.0 supports to save apps on the memory card and Sony phones. At the same time, it is far from all apps that support such a function and those it is never over in its entirety to the memory card but it wont be about half the app added.Even if memory card can offload it is thus no rescue, especially not when you can get older releases of Z-series with more storage space and generally better specifications for somewhere around the same price tag depending on the model.
It is also a bit itself Sony has to compete with this. Even if your budget may not extend to buying any of their top models are Z1 and Z2 are still skilled phone series that is available for either just below the price tag for the M4, or just over. We are not saying that the M4 is a direct bad phone, but it has definitely the limit with too little free memory and when former top models still have consistently better specifications feels the lack of charge port door as a relatively quite small comfort. There are many pitfalls for phones in this segment and unfortunately, Xperia M4 stuck in one.
On the other hand
Dan Isaksson: Fun camera to although it feels not optimal having to wait to find focus, M4 Aqua suffer from. However, feels good in the hand Phone, something that offsets and learning help when phone comes with down in the water, I know myself how friction causes the cell phone has more difficult to slip out of his hands.

Questions and answers
Supplied with Microsoft Office as to the plates?
Nope, just to to it all is the virrat app OfficeSuite which stands for the work here as opposed to against the tiles.
What is it bloatware?
PlayStation-and kamerarelaterat, there is a part of, but even antivirus and testvariant of Garmin’s navigatorapp.
But water and open contact … it sounds a little dangerous
You may of course make sure that the plug is completely dry before you try to download if you bathed with the handset, but otherwise it is nothing strange.
One option: Sony Xperia Accelerometer or Z2
Z2 costs a few hundred more, but is many times better and waterproof. Accelerometer is equivalent, but with more memory, better camera and a lower price tag.
There are no major errors in the pictures, but nothing to write home about.
