ShalikaAshan, 06 Jun 2017use Xperia companion tool. http://support.sonymobile.com/global-en/xperia-companion/I bought 4, 1 for myself and 3 for family members. Yepp drop it and that's it, but anyway me and my whife have never droped ours but have had the same problems as many others with apps that stops working and the phone shutting down randomly, and after 1 year i now have 4 phones that does not start at all anymore. And the camera takes way to long to start up.
cam is good if its in a good light source.
speaker is awesome.
screen is HD so its perfect.
the main reason why you will buy this phone is the waterproof feature and it has served me well even on salt water, i know you're not suppose to use it there but i did and it still worked
and kept on working after i take it to shower and on the tub with me and my kid.
memory . memory . merory. that's the only thing that sucked about this i had known it would have been a deal breaker
not worth it
drop it once and then it's complete and utter garbage
shuts down randomly and many apps stop working at random times, including but not limited to google chrome, home screen and camera/album

Jane , 13 May 2017I'm using this phone too in almost 1yr my prob is I can't use the camera and I always reset be... moreYou have to try factory reset, on backup and reset menu. Before that, you have to backup all data on your M4 Aqua. Then, reset within battery more than 80 percents condition. After restarting, and back to default, please uninstall unnecessary apps you want. Don't update few google apps product or else, it just ruin out of your storage. Then, after uninstall few apps, your storage will increase. Not many, maybe just 3,2 GB average. Then you can install apss you want, and notice some apps that can be move to sdcard to keep your internal storage from out of space. Good luck.
It's a decent phone, I've tried marshmallow and it has a bad sound. So I went back to lollipop 🍭 and rooted the phone so that I can remove apps I don't use and increase the memory.
Awful phone. Simply awful.
Even though the RAM and processing power are decent, who puts 8gb internal memory, of which less than 3 is usable? I mean seriously.
Aside from that, the SD card can't be used as an internal memory. All this makes the phone slow as a snail. Each time I need to upgrade application, i need to delete other one to free space.
Additionally, the camera is pretty bad, and the battery life is too low. Not to mention it takes hours to be fully charged.
Awful phone, do not consider buying it. Not worth the money. There are much better low budget phones out there.
I have an Xperia M4 Aqua Commercial and journalist (1293-4994) and it's stuck on Android 5.0, can't be updated to 6.0 even with pc companion (it says the device has the latest software). I want to know if I can flash a different operator software via flash tool. Help!
Dont buy it, my phone lasts for 1.4 years only... 1. limitation of memory 2. its keep restarting
I have this device from its first week of release and still no problems (and i am using it for games very much ,over 5-6 hours per day) , about the heating issue ...after 1,5 years the battery lost 10-15% total power and at the same time the device does not overheat anymore , the battery has a problem not the device itself , too much power for a slim battery causes the overheat ...
