in Hands On, Videos, Xperia E4

Xperia E4 unboxingThe Sony Xperia E4 (E2105) has seen its first video unboxing in what looks like a retail model. The device is booted up and a quick tour given around a Sony skin that will be familiar to most readers. The user who took the video (adrianisen) did complain about the responsiveness of the display. He followed up the unboxing video with another video showing just what kind of problems he faced (see below).

Separate videos include a comparison between the Xperia E4 and Xperia E3. Looking at the handsets side-by-side seems to show that the Xperia E4 suffers from a slightly more washed out display. To give an idea of performance, another video shows how GTA San Andreas fares on the Xperia E4. Check out all four videos below.

Thanks Ben!

    Is it just me or rounder corners make E4 looks less expensive than it predecessor?

    l thought it would run 5.0. l am 1 funny guy.

  • Rodney

    Didnt know there was a corelation between the roundness of corners and price ?

    This a diffrent design, a diffrent take. I like this one.

  • Timel

    Laughing at his unboxing video. First time saw someone literally destroyed the box. Having said that, so disappointed about the display and performance. Hope it will improve once it is release officially.

  • Troy Strömberg

    The new design looks way better than the old models.

    Display quality could’ve been a bit punchier (maybe it’s more accurate than the E3?). Seems like Sony picked a cheap display to keep cost down. Hopefully the display touch problem is resolved soon with an update. It also would have been nice if it was at least splash resistant. Otherwise performance is decent. It’s ok.

    Well what do you expect from a guy that covers the z3 with Nutella!

  • Omarion07

    It looks pretty decent to me given the low price tag. Good job Sony!

  • David Hvatov

    E4 sucks. Ugly design for me.

  • Omarion07

    Man its an entry level phone that costs 100 euros. Its definitely not going to look or perform like a flagship!

  • Omarion07

    Is that you Timel? For realz!!!

  • ? ? android ? ?

    its not the final product guess

  • Jerry Berglund

    Haha, he just rips it open. haha. Well this guy was kinda famous for his bashing of Sony Ericsson and Sony-phones and very pro Samsung. But reseantly he been nicer to Sony and more Pro HTC and Samsung doesnt seem to be hes favorite choise that often anymore. And he more often says. Nice to Sony-phones and seems rather surpriced. But sure, he founds this issue with the screen. Sure its good he finds it. But he do kinda make it crazy. Who do click that often onto the phone in normal use. But when it comes to gaming there is a issue. Maybe it can be a problem with the screen.

    I find impressive that this low budget device can run san andreas at max settings with so little lag. Cool stuff.

    If it goes on like this. Time to bid goodbye to Sony.

  • Niels d. G.

    Hmm… The E4’s display contrast seems very low, shallow blacks and the screen seems very reflective.

    Amazing device, it runs gta pretty smooth

  • doraemonboi

    Is sony trying to make people get hyped up for Z4? U see E4, M4, Z4 tablet. But no news on Z4 phone.

    E4 looks good though.

  • what is the “2” that comes up before Kitkat logo when you tap on android version? I get “1” in my Z1 Compact.

    division due to fierce competition and are going to concentrate on above
    mid-range tier..and then next phone from E Series gets launched -_- . I
    dont get sony at times -_- . every E series phone is crap.!

  • adneon0

    Width of phone is weird .. the whole design is actually weird.. This type of design was never expected from sony. Actually looks like a lumia and chinese phone hybrid design >_<
