Sony Xperia E4 Targets the Low End
Feb 10, 2015, 7:00 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Sony today announced the Xperia E4, an inexpensive Android handset that offers Sony style in a more economical package. The phone will ship in black and white colors and makes use of Sony's Omnibalance design language with a large screen lock button on the right side. The phone features a 5-inch qHD display and quad-core MediaTek 1.3GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. The E4 includes a 5-megapixel camera with many of Sony's shooting modes, such as AR Fun, Timeshift Burst, Creative Effect, and Social Live. The phone has a 2-megapixel user-facing camera, too. The phone has Sony's PartyShare feature for pushing audio content to home theater equipment and xLoud for improved sound. Sony claims the 2,300mAh battery is good for two days of usage when in Stamina Mode and the E4 has 8GB of built-in storage. The Xperia E4 runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat and will ship in select markets later this month. None of the U.S. carriers have yet said they'll sell the phone.

So much for Sony trying to be profitable in mobile...
I predict the new new head of Mobile gets promoted to customer after this crap phone flops too. Or maybe they can get a deal with T-mo or ATT and throw them out the door for nothing, but that's not very profitable until they start hitting millions of units.
What a shame, so many media properties, so much engineering talent, such mediocre phones.
