The lowdown on Sony’s new mid range M2 smartphone.
The Sony Xperia M2 is exactly what an increasing number of new smartphone buyers are looking for. It may not blow anyone away with it’s looks, specifications or feature set, however with the smartphone market maturing, it could be a very attractive prospect for anyone looking out for a great deal.
If you’re reading Clove’s blog then it’s odds-on you already own a smartphone. Where that device sits in the tiers of power & price may be a little difficult to guess though, with specifications rising and relative prices falling faster than ever before.
What’s even harder to gauge it was what you may need from a new handset. If you’re approaching an upgrade period at the end of a 24 month cycle, or perhaps just fancy a new phone after a year or so, then the market has changed drastically since your last look.
Smartphones in the M2′s SIM free price range of around £200 are no longer cheap, cheerful devices to turn your nose up at. They are in fact powerful, capable machines that may even outperform the 2 year old flagship in your hand that cost more than twice as much not too long ago.
I won’t be going into Clove’s usual deep longform detail in this mini review – that’s reserved for flagship handsets – although if you’re interested in the M2 and want to know a few more details then read on.
