I have this phone for 2 monts now. It's great. I use camera every day, isn't the best, but it's nice for every day camera and for this price. When playing music, if you have xLoud feature turned on at highest volume, it is a bit distorted. The screen is nice for every day things. And video recording is great. It has a steday shot stabilizator. Design is very nice and durable. Nice scratch resistant screen. But
I personally prefer to use pouch, because back is made of some sort glass. And please geeks, be quiet. This is not phone for rich people because it is a MIDRANGE phone, not the "premium" phone.

Try to upgrade it to KitKat and do manual setting in Camera (read comment from expert 123).
I was also thought that it's not the best one out there, but soon after I tried manual setting and also upgrade to KitKat, I was stunned! M2 Camera result beats my wife's iPhone!
I used my M2 with all data all day long. I used it start from 0600hrs and when I'm going to sleep, it still have About 15% to 20% left.

Have you tried to connect via PC Companion Software? This might help.
I came to own an xperia m2 just for a month. I am beginning to explore the unit but i get frustrated because it always stops, i cannot use it at all. I need to wait for the battery to get empty before i can turn it off.
It is so frustrating knowing that it is sony.

Developer support is still small; the device is not a year old yet, but we will be getting there.
The S3 has an excellent developer community, so why upgrade? Specs for specs versus the M2, the S3 is still an excellent phone.

Hi Lukax amd those wo asked about KitKat Upgrade.
There's 2 options to upgrade it.
1. Via Sony PC Companion through your PC.
2. Via OTA (over the air).
If your phone already get notification, then you can upgrade it to KitKat.
I upgraded my M2 via OTA. Just make aure you have a fast WiFi connection as this upgrade will need to download about 350MB.
To check it, just go to update center and tap system. You will need to download it first before. Please be advised that upgrade process after you finished to download it will take about 40-50 minutes.
Anyone (M2 users), Trust me, Camera result are much better after you upgraded it to KitKat. I proved it my self! It even much better than my Wife's iPhone4!
Is it using Corning Gorilla Glass 3? and how about installing a tempered glass as additional protection? thanks
Is there a guide how to manually install kitkat on m2 for those who haven't recevied the update yet?
Expert 123, 22 Aug 2014Those who STILL saying that M2 has poor camera are those who have yet to update their firmware... moreThank you for the information! Now I have a better feeling about the upcoming Aqua ^^
[deleted post]Hi Koyal,
I think it's not fair to generalize this phone specification with aftersales support in your area to all of Sony all over the world. Here in Indonesia, we have a great support center. I had a difficulties before, when I upgraded my M2 software upgrade. (not on my KitKat upgrade). It shows no progress when updating via my Laptop. I called Sony Support Center and they guided me through with all detail and even follow it through with email afterward just to check whether my problem solved or not.
I really satisfied with Sony Support Services so far and I really don't think your review represent my experience correctly.
Just for your information, I had several different mobile phones brand in the past, and no support center better than Sony Support Center services so far. My experience before with other famous brand, they didn't helped my any bit at all but direct me to go to their service instead of trying to assist me firsthand.
Don't ask urself, just replace the s3 with this beast. The camera is perfect for midrange, the screen can't show the picture well, but when u download it to PC the picture is very good. In Bulgaria we started to recieve KitKat last week. Very powerfull combination between CPU and graphics, I play Fifa14 and PvZ2 without sign of lag.
