It’s not everyday that we comment on a device and its storage (or its lack thereof). But the Xperia M4 Aqua requires a special mention for packing only 1.26GB of storage on the device, effectively forcing the customers to add a microSD card on their device. The smartphone is the company’s latest midrange offering and is already selling in a handful of countries globally.
Although the smartphone can take microSD cards of up to 32GB, it seems terribly misleading that the company would endorse 8GB of usable storage and only have 1.26GB to access. We’re fully aware that software versions usually take a bulk of the storage, but it should still have about 4GB of storage for the users. It is a little out of the ordinary for the Android system to take up 4.03 GB of the entire system storage.
The Xperia M4 Aqua also has a 16GB model, which might be your better bet if this revelation is any indication. We haven’t heard much about the Xperia M4 Aqua with regards to an American launch, but we hope to learn more in due time.
