mathaniyer, 26 Jul 2016I've had this phone since January 2016 and I regretted the choice within 48hrs. 7 months later... moreI also don't like this phone but I have to make some corrections
- This isn't a decent phone for price. The value of this phone is really bad (but I believed in the marketing about octa core and 2 gigs of Ram while it's only reaching about 30'000 points in a tutu (or 37'000 since Marshmallow but still only little above iPhone 5 level)
- It is waterproof, they even say you shouldn't take it into salt water because it destroys the sealing
- Battery is the only thing I like about it. And 20% in 30 mins isn't much. I remember my iPhone 5 with battery draining iOS 8 and old backup on it lasting less than 1 hour
- The screen doesn't even have a small border. The bezels of this thing are huuuuuge. Some 5.5 inch devices are smaller than this 5 inch device
- I don't think viewing outside is that bad, other phones aren't better but this is pretty ok because Sony phones are very bright.
- Back of it is soooo bad. I have scratches or more like strange discoloration which look like dirt all over it, completely full of this. It also is full of fat from fingerprints. But it's not slippery. It's more like the sides are slippery while they are way better quality than this mistake of a back
Sukhi, 24 Jul 2016Seriously? I bought this phone last year in July n mine is working all fine. so stop mislead... moreWhat the hell are u talking. For example, my iPad never heats. And when there is something on your phone not working, you have to talk about it and not be happy with it. And why do u love it more than iPhone 6 Plus??? WTF?! This is a high end phone, no comparison to this overpriced low-mid-end phone. And I have it myself. I would appreciate if I could change my Xperia M4 Aqua to your iPhone 6 Plus (mine is perfectly fine because I'm using a case but I wouldn't care if your iPhone had damages all over the place, I would still change).
Coco mcskeane, 28 Jul 2016It's a phone...
Honestly, where do you think they could fit a fan to cool down the chip?
Goo... moreMy one runs cooler with the new marshmallow 6.0.1 update.
Also the way it plays music has changed, i can't tell if its much more quiet than before. But the quality of sound has went up, i think.
(using a 1-2 months old Sony Xperia M4 Aqua)

Honestly, where do you think they could fit a fan to cool down the chip?
Good luck ;-)
I downgraded to this last month.
Its fine. Stick a 32 gb micro card from tesco in it for a tenner and it's golden.
No problems with overheating....
But I'm not ten?
I love the Sony music player. It Let's you share music more easily than android or vlc on the handset.
Pretty impressed by it IMHO ;-)
mathaniyer, 26 Jul 2016I've had this phone since January 2016 and I regretted the choice within 48hrs. 7 months later... moreIts not made for salt water ... it is waterproof , but maybe read the specs before droping it in the sea....
After the android 6 update feels like a brand new phone! Excellent job from sony one more time !
LisaK, 26 Jul 2016I agree, battery life is good, I play games, I browse most of the day, and have to charge ... moreIn here the phone gets burning hot (literally burning hot, can't even hold it in hand) if we play some game on it. Angry Birds 2 is a perfect example, can't play longer than 15-20 mins without letting the phone to cool down. :/
sood, 20 Jul 2016NOW update is available in india There is no marshmallow update for me,,i am an Indian user,,but when I am chakeing for update it shows there is no update,,,but when I am updating my phone at March it shows that it is small security patches,, and then my phone getting so much hot,,if I use few minutes gaming like clash of clans,,or real racing 3,,and dischargeing very soon.... when I am telling that things to Sony care they says that when android 6.0.1 update coming,, this problem will be fixed,, but when android 6.0 update comes?????
navas India , 25 Jul 2016Very very low sound, marshmallow 6.0.1 M4 Aqua I confirme since marshmallow update sound quality went to terrible
I agree, battery life is good, I play games, I browse most of the day, and have to charge my phone at the end of the day, when I don't play games and do not use it often or as much it can easily keep me up to a day and half. everything is perfect for this range phone, except internal storage, but that I knew before I got this phone, so invest in a big sd card!
I've had this phone since January 2016 and I regretted the choice within 48hrs. 7 months later and the phone is needing to be replaced. After dropping the phone in the ocean (salt water) it was permanently toasted. RIP. In conclusion i would stay far far away from this device....heck I'd rather have my old iphone 4 than this...
-Decent device for price
-Water resistant (not waterproof) so you can get it wet a few times without worrying (I took pictures underwater but the camera lens started fogging and eventually thats how my phone died...too much confidence in its water resistant feature)
-Good looking phone
-dedicated camera button
-Fairly fast processing (little to no lags)
-Not waterproof !!
-Call Reception is ptrettay prettay poor
-Battery is terrible (100%-80% within 30 mins on the toiletin the morning) and phone heats up really badly (my understanding is this happens due to the water resistant coating on the chip and internal components)
-the screen has a small border which makes it prone to picking up even the slightest unintentional contact with your palms)
-There is poor viewing in outdoor sunlight even with the brightness cranked at 100%
-Back side is easily scratched and phone slips out of your hand fairly easily
-Long boot up time
-Quiet speakers and poor positioning (bottom instead of front)
-earphone is quiet on calls compared to other phones
-headphone jack is somewhat loose and is prone to disconnecting from your headphones
-Insufficient storage space (
After updating to Android Marshmallow, do anyone know how much space is left in 8GB version?

Anonymous, 23 Jul 2016Honestly such a bad phone, don't buy it. Got this phone last year in august 2015 and its alrea... moreSeriously? I bought this phone last year in July n mine is working all fine. so stop misleading people by saying, 100% battery drain in 10min...mine rake like more than 9-10hr to drain 100% battery. plus every single hardware n software on my phone is working well to. n about heating problem...then which phone don't have heating problem? all the phones due to heavy processor have heating problem...so stop complaining n enjoy what u r getting. n seriously speaking I love this phone more than my iPhone 6 plus.
