discreet formalization, with MediaTek instead of Qualcomm

The Sony Xperia E4 smartphone indeed embeds the platform MediaTek MT6582 with its 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB RAM and modem 3G +. Its predecessor had, as a reminder, opted for the SoC Snapdragon 400, which gave access to 4G / LTE.

It offers a screen 5 inch in a 960 x 540 pixel definition (for a resolution of 220 ppi), one or two SIM slots (depending on the version), 2 and 5 Megapixel photo sensors and flash memory 8 GB expandable by MicroSD card. The previous model was content, for the record, with a 4.5-inch screen, a 0.3-megapixel sensor on the front and a 4 GB flash memory.

The non-removable battery of the Sony Xperia E4 is a 2300 mAh model which gives hope for up to 12 hours in communication, near 50 hours in music and in 600-700 hours in standby, roughly the autonomy of the Xperia E3. At the exit of the box, the user will find the system Android KitKat. So see if the manufacturer will deign to provide the Lollipop update afterwards.

In short, with this new iteration, the entry level of Sony gains on certain aspects and loses on others, perhaps less essential. Although hammered by all operators, 4G is not everyone's priority. To take advantage of this, it will now be necessary to turn to the manufacturer's mid-range, currently represented by the Xperia M2.
