First Phone: The Sony Xperia M2 Aqua
The Sony Xperia M2 Aqua
The Xperia M2 Aqua is apparently a display- and imaging-oriented Android (as are most Xperia models) that packs a couple of rugged perks. Its IP65/IP68 certification labels it as a dust-tight and waterproof model, which might make poolside or under-the-rain captures with its 8-megapixel camera more convenient. Its hardware includes a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, an Adreno 305 GPU and a 2330mAh battery. Its 8GB native memory and 1GB RAM seem to level with many other Xperias from Sony, though the TRILUMINOS display and Bravia engine were nowhere mentioned for this one.
