Sony Xperia E4


Continuing its assault on the entry-level to mid-range market, Sony's Xperia E4 is a solid offering. It's biggest competition however, is its yet-to-debut LTE-sporting brother.

Solid processing performance; Good battery life; Very well priced for market

A bit too plastic; Other variants with better features on the way

All in all, the Xperia E4 is a solid entry level to mid-range device. While I had my initial reservations about it, particular as its design was not particularly eye-catching of definitive, it won me over with its great processing performance. As an...

One Minute Review: Sony Xperia E4


Sony's latest smartphone line-up includes this $129 budget number. We trialled one for a month and while there are no performance surprises (good or bad), for the price it's a real deal. A MediaTek 1.3GHz processor is sufficient for smooth Android...

"Up against the $239 Moto E, its closest competitor with very similar specs it’s the budget champ for sure."

Sony Xperia E4 review


The Sony Xperia E4 is an entry-level phone that lacks 4G connectivity, but does offer a large screen, a capable camera, a big battery, and a decent amount of memory. It's available for under £100 on PAYG, or on the cheapest monthly contracts.

Sony Xperia E4 Dual Review: A Fish Out of Water


Good battery life

Poor camera performance ; Expensive ; Average display

Battery life notwithstanding, Sony loses the plot with the Xperia E4 Dual. The official price of the phone is Rs. 12,490 though it can be purchased for a slight discount online. Still, the price is too high considering that even HTC managed to pack an...

Good size phone


Good points.\nGood size phone, good battery life, load tones,\n\nBad point.\nThe cable for charging is far too small, you have to have the phone plug on the floor or leave it to dangle which could damage the phone and charger, also the same would...

Great phone for a small price


I bought as a replacement for a mucn more expensive phone and it compares quite nicely, I had bought value handsets which broke easily so was a little wary of buying a mobile at under £100 but its nicely made and strong
