Sony’s new Xperia M2 is the more compact of the models it introduced at the MWC this morning. With a qHD display and Snapdragon 400 SoC, it’s a few steps removed from a top-shelf smartphone, but certain specs like its eight-megapixel camera help elevate it a little above the chaff. We’ve already shown you how the M2 compares to the Z2, as well as given you a hands-on of the phone itself, and now we switch gears and see how it measures-up to some of its competition, putting it against HTC’s One Mini.
