Sony has been a big name in the electronics game for a long time now, and while a lot of their Android-powered smartphones do take a long time to get to the US, the Xperia M4 Aqua is readily available and affordable. Based around their more expensive Xperia Z line, the Xperia M4 Aqua features the same water and dust resistance, making it submergible as well as capable of standing up to spills and drops in the sink, or worse. The Xperia M4 Aqua is powered by the same Octa-Core Snapdragon 615 in other 2015 flagships and it has a Sony 13-megapixel camera as well as a dedicated camera button for easy use, too.
It's on offer right now on Amazon for $199.99, which is a reduction down from the usual RRP of $299 and regular price of $249 or so. This is a GSM-based smartphone, which means that it should work just fine on T-Mobile, AT&T and MVNO networks that run off of those networks such as Straight Talk and others. The Xperia M4 Aqua is a great idea for a first-time smartphone or a cheaper option for a gift this Holiday for someone not on a contract or something similar. It works well and has a lot of the same features that other Sony smartphones are known for at a cut-rate price.
