The Xperia M Dual, the predecessor of the Xperia M2 Dual was priced at around Rs 12,000 and was one of the best-selling smartphones in its price range. We are not sure why Sony has hiked the price of the Xperia M2 by Rs 10,000. Sony’s own Xperia T2 Ultra is available at the same price as the Xperia M2. Instead of competing with other brands, Sony’s devices are cannibalising themselves. The Xperia T2 Ultra is overall a better offer than the Xperia M2 as it comes with a larger 6 inch HD Triluminous display, 13MP camera and is only 7.7 mm slim in spite of using a larger 3000 mAh battery. Some of the smartphones in this price range are the Galaxy Grand 2, Motorola Moto X, Apple iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and the Gionee ELife E7. We feel that the Sony Xperia M2 is way overpriced for its features. What do you think? Would you buy the Xperia M2 at the current price? Let us know in the comments below.

SONY is the only company in world which is in great Loss and closing its outlet. But still making profits in India because of IDIOT INDIANS. Who are blinded by Brand Name not quality and functionality. Samsung and HAIER LEDs are best in price and features but MORON INDIANS will go for SONY KI LCD hihihi 🙂

@mohit *Bro first of all don’t call me sir because for all I know I may be a lot younger than you in age. *See as far as I have seen Nokia till date has never been serious about LTE for the Indian market.if Nokia were really serious about LTE then both Nokia Lumia 625 and Nokia Lumia 920 should have launched with LTE support for Indian LTE band 40 but they did not.What’s more is that Nokia has two models one is Nokia Lumia 630 and the other is Nokia Lumia 635 which is actually Lumia 630+LTE.for all I… Read more »
