The display has beautiful colors and looks very lively. It reacts without hang or delay. The here locally attached Reklamtionen about poor response time of the display can not confirm and understand maybe.
The processor runs smoothly and round, no Rückler or similar. The sound of the headphone output is perfectly okay and delivers a clean and balanced sound. Is not as loud as the iPhone 5S but loud enough about anything to perceive his environment ;-) The built-in speaker should not be operated at maximum volume as it is otherwise overloaded. The speakerphone is good, but in the open or noisy environments not very convincing, as should access better to external devices.
We come now to the software: ships with Android 4.4.2, but is immediately after the first time the latest version Android 4.4.4 available. This is going great round and it all fits. In addition, Sony has intregriert own update app that also brings its own software up to date. Personally, I think it's great that Sony's models so maintains and keeps up to date. For the rest I use the Launcher Halo, which is free to visit the Google Store. This can easily be adapted with different themes, backgrounds and skins and has several nice effects. This launcher also runs beautifully smooth and clean on the Xperia M2, which in turn also shows here that fits the hardware vote.
For processing, I can only say it all sits in the right place and makes a high quality impression. In the white version compared to the pictures on Amazon here is a chrome strip around the unit admitted what makes it look high. From my side I can only say that we in this smartphone can not go far wrong. At first I had my doubts because even the few negative postings, but I was pleasantly surprised. Hence my strong buy recommendation!
But not even last an info that may perhaps interest some. There are spare parts for mobile phones, such as the battery cover (EUR 15), the battery (org. Sony EUR 20 -can even be replaced because gesteckt-), display glass with frame (about 35 Euro -Displayglas and LCD Display can be replaced separately) and many more.
