Sony Xperia E4 – Review, Specification, Features, Price and more

Xperia E4 is an easy-to-use device and have a user friendly interface that makes your workflow even more better. The one of the most highlighted feature in E4 is battery life promises to give 2 days life that’s incredibly powerful. Xperia™ test the battery life in the laboratory and the Xperia E4/E4 Dual lasted up to 48 hours on average until battery exhaustion. Sony wanted to give some premium features with this device and its expecting to come. After battery life, you can see the specs about the display is bright, generous 5” qHD display and IPS, which call a popular quote of Sony : Unlock the Entertainment, Unlock the world.

5″ inch Larger Display


The large 5″ qHD screen with IPS makes the new Xperia E4 more good. These days people love displays which looks larger, but not extra large like a tablet and the 5 inch screen size smartphone’s is the perfect choice. E4 have scratch resistant glass to protect against common scratches. The same technology used with Sony TVs is using this device screen. IPS technology makes this device display viewing angle sharp & rich and the angle of viewing looks perfect from any side.

If we talk about display resolution so it’s not full HD, but at this price Sony giving a bomb phone, Resolution 720X1280 (720p) is the first HD display resolution, but in this Xperia E4 resolution is 960×540 little less than 720p so you can call this display HD because 720p & 1080p videos are run like a charm in this device because of 5” display.

2300 mAh, Long Life Battery


The most highlighted and Sony promises quality in E4 is battery life. Sony says, we test the battery performance of Xperia E4, E4 Dual in a laboratory and found the battery can live up to 48 hours (2 days) in default settings, no more battery saving tricks used or Sony STAMINA mode ON during the test. STAMINA mode is also in E4, which makes the device battery performance more better you can’t think. This mode stops all of your functions & apps if you’re not using the display, once you press the power button ON everything goes wake up again.

5MP (1080p) Back & 2MP (720p) Front Camera


5 mega pixel camera in back with 4X zoom give you more benefit at this price Xperia. The back camera can record video in Full HD 1080p, which Sony doesn’t give yet in any Xperia series at this budget. During a photo shoot you can use the premium HDR effect and make your pictures more clear.

Front camera is 2MP and can capture photos in 720p HD. I don’t think earlier devices of Xperia have 2MP 720p HD front facing camera. This is a good chance to take a Selfie in HDR with E4 low budget device.

Multitasking with 1GB RAM


Android™ fill apps store with creative/entertaining apps, but if your device can’t run no more apps because of less RAM, but now you didn’t need to worry about RAM because this Sony brings 1GB ram in this low budget Xperia device. With 1GB ram you can run multiple apps and do multi-tasking like a Windows 10.

Official Sony™ apps not taking too much room in RAM, so you didn’t need to root your device and make uninstall official apps. Many Xperia users found official apps comes with Xperia devices are more creative than other brands official apps that’s they didn’t need to ignore official Sony apps.

No more External, Internal is 8GB


According to my test 8GB storage is not more that you think, and in 5 inch screen device mostly folks love to watch HD videos & movies, and you know these types of files takes more room in your storage, but these days 8GB internal is going common and according to my experience most of the people use internal storage for apps and other major files.

Ultimate Performance with 1.3GHZ Quad-Core Processor


With 1GB ram and Quad-core processor you can say that the Xperia E4 is an ultimate device. Quad-Core with 1.3GHZ clock speed run multiple apps simultaneously and boost your device work flow like a charm. Overall, if you see these most technical feature you found all of your favorite that makes an Android better (Quad-Core+1GB Ram+8GB Internal+Low budget = Xperia E4).

Android™ 4.4.4 (KitKat)


Kitkat 4.4 version is coming with new Xperia devices and last time Sony also announced kitkat upgrade for some devices. The lollipop is not yet coming with Xperia devices, but soon it will surprise you.

Creative SONY™ apps


If you are previously using an Xperia device so you know Sony gives pre-installed apps which are creative & unique than other brand’s phone pre-installed apps. As it is, this time you get some cool camera apps that makes your friend’s life more better. Some of them are : AR fun(This app scribble and draw on top of what you see through the viewfinder with animations, objects and texts.), Portrait retouch(It gives you real time effect on camera with some makeup effects that makes your selfie more better) and more.

Price : Budget Phone

As you know the E4 is a low budget phone so the Price of Xperia E4 (Single Sim) is Around $112 (including VAT.). Dual price is around $125-$130. (Note that the price you seen here, maybe change according to the market value, to see exact price please go to your favorite online store after release.)
