All in all, we like where Sony is headed with the Xperia M, an affordable device with good looks and solid hardware like this one could become the staple in its smartphone lineup, but it needs to come down in price first.

The Walkman app is a great, polished application that breaks down your music collection by songs, albums, artists, playlists and favorites.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

It also comes with dual-channel Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, GPS and Bluetooth 4.0. The Xperia M features NFC connectivity that is well integrated with other Sony products like its TVs for instance. You can easily share images wirelessly by just tapping a Sony TV remote to send the images to the large screen. Similarly, you can share music, photos and.

The capture pictures have very low level of detail (noise is visible even when the sun shines bright) and the tonality is a bit oversaturated, but are nonetheless usable for casual share-the-moment social use and people tend to like those popping colors.

Putting its size aside, what we really care about is to understand how good this screen is.

Camera

Firing up the camera is fast and takes around a second.

Sony brings its own custom camera interface.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)
The camera takes pretty good images outdoors when light is plenty, but it does not stand out in its class.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)

Apps

The handset might not have the largest display out there, but it handles most games and even the latest graphical masterpieces like Real Racing 3.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)
Sony might never go back to its Walkman fame days, but the built-in Walkman music player in concert with the great sound pumping from the rear speaker make the Xperia M a great device for listening to music.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)
Having the option to arrange your app drawer by most used items is great, the transition animations are neat, and Sony has bundled in a bunch of ‘Small Apps’ that work on top of your existing applications.

Battery

The battery is also user replaceable and that’s a plus.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)
The 1750mAh battery on the Xperia M lasts us two days with average use, and even a bit more if we were more frugal with calls and gaming.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)

Design

With high-end devices growing larger every year, the niche for a compact Android phone remains open and while the Sony Xperia M does not have the latest cream of the crop specs, it fits right in the compact paradigm with a good design and a modest 4-inch screen.
