Sony Xperia M2 Arrives On EE Network
While the spotlight has been focused on the flagship Xperia Z2, Sony has released a mid-range smartphone that became available for purchase a week ago.
EE now have this reasonably priced gadget in stock for those who love the signature Xperia design and capabilities but are on a tight budget. It was announced to be ready for pre-order two months ago and buyers might have been getting fidgety over how long the phones took to arrive.
But arrive they have and you can sign up on the EE 4G plan with a deposit of £19.99 for the handset and monthly payments of £18.99. Other mobile operators including 02 and Vodafone also offer the M2, but through third party retailers.
Vodafone deals for the M2 appear to be the cheapest, starting at £17 per month. But you only get 250MB of data, and this on their 3G network.
Should you wish to skip the monthly bills and buy the phone upfront you can get it SIM-free at Carphone Warehouse for £219.95. Phones 4U offer the same cash price.
The Sony Xperia M2 doesn’t even pretend to be in the same league as models higher up the specs ladder, but for just £180, it does offer definite value for money.
Don’t be fooled by the plastic chassis, there is plenty to be happy about should you invest in this device. For one you will have a clear 4.8 inch HD screen to view your media. Of course you won’t get the razor sharp imaging of the 1080p display on the Z2, but at least its screen is bigger than that of rivals in the same class such as the Moto G. Its camera is also superior to that of the Moto G but prospective buyers may be lured to buying Motorola’s offering thanks to its significantly lower price tag.
You can get a Moto G for as little as £135.
But those who fork out the extra pounds will have a more powerful device on their hands, powered by a quad-core processor. The camera app on this phone blows that of the Moto out of the water too.
To make matters sweeter, the M2 is available in dual SIM, allowing you to take advantage of offers on different networks.
