In a nutshell

Touted by Sony as a mid-range phone, in fact the M4 Aqua owes a lot to the design qualities of Sony’s top-end Z series with its sleek and classy appearance. It’s waterproof as the name suggests, and Sony have also packed in an octa-core processor. The low price means some small compromises, but if you’re after a more than reasonable spec with good looks, the M4 could be the one for you.

Best for you if: you’re after supermodel looks but don’t want to pay high-fashion prices.

Not for you if: You're looking for something with the top-specs, more storage that's still got the water resistance and great camera, instead try the Samsung S5 Neo.

Full description

It’s fair to say the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua ticks a lot of boxes, being a decent mid-range smartphone that squeezes in some higher-end features at a very reasonable price.

It’s also a bit of a looker, bearing more than a passing resemblance to Sony’s high-end flagship phone, the Xperia Z3 – in fact you could think of it as the Z3’s little cousin.

We’ve already mentioned the octa-core processor which is at the cutting edge of mobile technology. This plus 2GB of RAM means the M4 can handle most things thrown at it.

It’s a pity Sony have had to compromise on storage, giving just 8GB of internal memory. Fortunately it’s expandable up to a whopping 128GB. So that’s alright then (phew).

The main camera is 13 megapixels and the selfie camera clocks in at 5 megapixels – good, but pretty standard these days for a phone in this price range. However Sony has also given its selfie camera a super wide-angled lens – ideal for group shots.

And because it’s waterproof, you can take pictures underwater (down to 1.5 metres, so keep an eye on your depth!), which we think is pretty cool.

We mentioned some compromise on performance, well the battery life isn’t as impressive as some other smartphones in this price bracket, and Sony tend to add extra software to their phones, which purists believe can slow them down.

But overall we think Sony have produced a very appealing phone in the M4, a phone with style as well as substance.

Our view: Good-looking, robust, and with some top-end features, for a very reasonable price.
