Sony Xperia E4 Review
The Xperia E4 won’t excite those of you hankering after the best new tech Sony has to offer. Its large display, however, may make it a worthy choice for those of you after big screen videos on the go and its promised two day battery life is certainly an exciting prospect.
Sony has a new low-end phone to try and tempt those of you whose bank accounts don’t stretch to the expense of its flagship Xperia Z3. Called the Xperia E4, this budget device has a large 5-inch display and a battery that will apparently keep it chugging along for two whole days — an impressive claim.
Key specs for the phone include a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, a 960×540-pixel screen, 8GB of storage and a 5-megapixel camera on the back. The E4 only has 3G, so don’t plump for this if you’re hoping to take advantage of super-fast 4G LTE data speeds.
Sony has yet to say exactly how much the phone will cost, but those specs plop this phone squarely in the bottom end of the smartphone market. To be competitive it will need to be somewhere around the £100/$150/AU$200 mark unlocked. Sony has so far also kept its mouth shut on exactly which countries the phone will be available, but we’ll update this article when we hear more.

Based on the images we’ve seen, the E4 has a plastic, rounded back with design cues like the silver, sticking-out power button and minimalist Sony branding you’ll see on higher-end Xperia phones. Although its 5-inch screen makes it quite large for a budget phone, it appears to have a fairly narrow bezel around the display to help keep the overall size of the body down.
