The Xperia™ M2 is another great mobile phone from Sony. The specs on the phone are between the specs of the Xperia T3 phone and the Xperia C3 mobile phone from Sony. The Xperia M2 comes with an 8 MP rear camera. Note that the forward VGA camera. The front camera is not very good but the rear camera is excellent. The price however gives away what you are buying.
The user manual for the Xperia M2 has been listed below so you can compare before you decide which Xperia to purchase. This is a mid-range mobile phone much like the Lumia 1520 mobile phone from Nokia. The specs for this phone is as follows which has been listed below.
Multimedia is always at the top when it comes to new mobile phones as everyone wants a mobile phone with all the bells and whistles. Being a mid-range mobile phone it comes with some bells but not all the whistles. The M2 mobile phone comes with the standard Xperia camera at the rear being an 8MP camera with X4 digital zoom and a VGA front view camera. This is not a major issue as not that many people are into selfies as yet. It also comes with an 4.8″ display which is nice and large and comes with the standard Xperia features such as Geotagging, Image stabiliser and also with Red-eye reduction. It can view images in the following formats – BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG and WBMP. Video recording is in the 3GPP, MP4 format and it can only play these video formats. If you want to play other formats you need to look at a media emulator which will do this but it uses more battery power. If this is a major issue to you then look at the upgraded Xperia such as the Xperia C3 mobile phone.
