in Xperia M4 Aqua

Xperia M4 Aqua_8Sony Mobile has started to ship the Xperia M4 Aqua and Xperia M4 Aqua Dual across a number of markets around the world. We have noticed the handset go on sale across retailers in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

The mid-range device is intriguing, offering a design that near enough mirrors the current Xperia Z3 flagship, with decent specs including IP65/IP68 dust/water certification with a capless USB charging port.

The Sony Xperia M4 Aqua is available in colours ranging from the usual Black and White, but Coral too. Some markets also have a Silver version on offer. If you’ve been contemplating picking up a Xperia M4 Aqua yourself, let us know which colour takes your fancy and why in the comments below.

    Red one reminded me my w910i..oh how good phone it was..

  • Svnjay

    I’m seriously considering getting this, or the Z3, Z3+ or Nexus 6. I love the White and Black models.

  • P9

    nice Sony, super real midrange killer, hope Sony get success with this!

  • Ashroft

    Looks weird without the G Lens,20.7mp and 1/2.3 logo haha

  • Danny

    I’m considering getting the M4 Aqua rather than the Z3 or the more expensive Z3+. 5.0 IPS screen, capless USB, IP rating, 13MP rear, 5MP front camera, and the White one actually have white bezels in the front as well.

    Despite it being mid-range, price is still a little too high for me. I might just wait to get it on the cheap.

  • GregLu

    The red one is just so beautiful ! They should release more colour for their next flagship … The real one i mean ;-)

  • It wasn’t vaporware, after all… It’s either this or the Z3 Compact. Most likely on black.

  • rzero21

    should have put the USB port at the bottom just like the Z4 to keep the new design as standard as possible so you can use several accesories across all models

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Does this mean the Z4 Tablet is close to being released?! I want it so bad!

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    The Coral or Red Orange one looks great, if they had a red (Like the Xperia ZL), or a darker red for their next flagships of have a difficult time choosing between that and black

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Go the Nokia route? 5 different colors!

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Maybe wait for the Z5?

  • Svnjay

    Maybe :)

  • Simon Setyadarma

    I might get Z3c instead of this, dunno why but I don’t like that the phone only sports 5 inch while the body looks so big (a.k.a. bulky) and I believe, the screen-to-body ratio must be below 70, around 65-68%
    Well that just my preference, but if not I think I’m gonna wait for C4 or lavender instead.

  • Simon Setyadarma

    That’s how they do to force people to use the exact phone for exact accessorie

  • rzero21

    And that’s how they loose money on unsold accesories. In my country I have seen several accesories for the Tablet S and that tablet has been discontinued years ago. Now you find Xperia Tablet Z2 and no accesories to be found. But if they had a standard set for their phones (like Apple did for their iPods and iPhones), Sony could sell accesories compatible with their phones no matter how many years pass on.

    Even today, Sony sells several audio equipment with docks compatible with Apple iPods and iPhones, but almost none for their own Xperia phones.

  • Alvin Zahran Majid

    your confusion is just the same as me, I’m confused either getting Z3+, wait for Z5, get Nexus 6, wait for next Nexus, this M4 Aqua, C4, or wait for next year at all.. I’m afraid that I’ll kill myself in regrets if I buy Z3+ because I have this feeling that their Z5 will be a major overhaul than the Z3+

  • Simon Setyadarma

    Well you right, the only accessories that support many Xperia only that charging dock or that cable, headset, headphone, and other music accessories..
    Maybe they should not produce too much and try to make one accessories usable for many Xperia phones, would be great like Apple did, like you said.

  • Simon Setyadarma

    I better get a Z3c…
    When the Z5 came let’s see the upgrade if it’s acceptable and really a major overhaul, maybe buy a new one…

  • ZR

    Already Got One here in India

    One thing that doesn’t sound fair though, that GSMArena doesn’t put the battery life update for the M4 Aqua into headline though, so that the image of bad battery life is still there where in fact it has almost the same battery life compared to z3 (after testing the retail build). But anyway if on budget this one should take the cake. If 100$ richer though, z3 compact is still better deal.

  • P9

    see the price of A5…

  • P9

    how was the phone?

  • Billy de Fretes

    blum bro.. msh m2 aja… ga tau di prj ada apa ga

  • Bought mine 3 days ago here in Europe. I can say I’m very satisfied with the device in term of performance, it runs everything smooth, no lag whatsoever, battery life is pretty good, cameras are awesome, they are really good even in low light conditions. Call quality is really good, I was suprised. All in all, the phone is really good and I would advise anyone to buy it. :)

  • marcyff2

    Hope so. gathering my pences at the moment.

  • the_matchless

    It better be…

  • Nikola Maruni?

    Personally I don’t lke the fact that a mid-ranger looks just like my high end Xperia Z3. Or Z3+/Z4 now.

  • Timel

    I want Xperia with Green Emerald color

  • xperiaDROID

    They should price this lower than the OnePlus One, then it would be a mid-range killer.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Do you know how the red Xperia ion looked like? I would like to see something similar on the next high end phone from Sony :)

  • s-emo


  • AXBiC

    Since the front of xperias turned white, it became the best color :p

  • dinesh

    My friend bought this on June 4. I’m from India .The product superb and impressive for usera

  • Deads

    The profit margin on assecories is so high that being stuck with some doesnt really matter.

  • Damien

    I like how they call the Z’s a Z line when they’re all the same design, same ideas. It should be called the Xperias. Not Z’s, M’s, C’s, E’s.

  • kaostheory

    Kinda think it’s time to retire the Xperia for high end, they should get the Vaio name back or come up with something better.

  • ryq24

    Great mid range phone. Too bad it’s too expensive.

  • Timel

    Whatever I think Sony should stop producing midrange devices, it’s hard to compete with chinese phones.

    I went to the chroma store here in India and had chance to play with M4. I think for sure that Sony did improve a lot with its Camera Softwares. Images were pretty sharp and noise levels were under the caution level….. I can Says after having Galaxy A7 and Desire 820 in hand, Camera was much better on M4 Aqua !!! And, Even the Front camera was much better !!!

    The NL 8 Gb version has 2,90 Gb available to the user. A little (150Mb) more if you delete the Facebook, Vine and Navigon app.
    And it is possible to move some apps to an SD card of max 128 Gb.

    the three colors of Sony Xperia M4 Aqua are great colors chosen property, but I prefer the black, it is a sober and elegant color.
