The Xperia M2 has a width of 2.8inches (71.1mm), a length of 5.5inches (139.7mm), and a thickness of 0.34inches (8.6mm). It might be possible to operate it with one hand, but depending on the person it might feel big. In addition, the weight of the Xperia M2 is about 5.2oz (148g).

Xperia M2's battery performance

The battery performance of the Xperia M2 is 2300mAh, which is a normal capacity. Compared to other smartphones, the Xperia M2 has a normal amount of battery life. There is nothing to be worried about with everyday use. However, if you are using the internet or playing a game for a long time, you might feel a bit frustrated with the battery life.

Xperia M2's general rating
