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 ...

my m4 aqua dual didn't even lasted 1.5 yrs..it's totally dead. was having heating problem from beggining,moreover this set is not repairable...means once any hardware problem arises it's a scrap.
also it's restarting problem began just after my warranty failed
don't purchase it ..i suggest
if u r a sony lover then better go for xa dual in this price range.
My phone did not even last a year . I wouldnt recommend it yo anyone to buy a sony . Consider Samsung or huawei

buy the up and comming brand trying to establish reputation
I've had it for about an year (since my previous Z3 compact broke its screen for the 2nd time).
This was easily in the top 3 of worst mobiles I've had in my life (taking into account comparable phones of its time). The 8GB memory limitation is a nightmare. It has come to a point where I only have whatsapp installed in my phone.
It finally broke up this weekend, and I'm replacing it for an XA1 - perhaps repeating the mistake. Let's hope not
I am very unhappy with the Xperia M4. This phone has been repaired twice under warranty as there is a problem with recharge function. Even after being repaired twice under warranty Sony would not replace the phone. The phone has again lost its recharge function. It is a lemon and I will not be buying another Sony mobile phone after their poor customer service.
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2017Wouldn't recommend it at all honestly; just a waste of money on my part. It's worth a mention ... moreHuawei mid range phones are barely better
Asus mid range phones are worse
Oppo phones are heavily overpriced
better go for an old high end phone which you can get for a good price. examples: iPhone 5s, Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Xperia Z3, like already mentioned

I got this phone for more then a year an a half, no problem so far. I dont consider myself an heavy user, but i play games on it for about 4 hours a day. Nothing from previous comment happened to me. I will be eligible for an upgrade in october but i was thinking about keeping this phone till it stop working and continue on a lower price plan to use this phone that is serving me well

hi Guys.. just wanting to ask if upgrading the M4 to Marshmallow is better than Lolipop? I've been using this phone for more than 7 months now. So far it served me fine (actually not truly well) if you ask me cuz I got the 16gb variant.,.. Thanks in advance :D
Have been considering to buy this phone for a while now but after going through the opinions here I`d rather sacrifice and go for a Z2 or 3
Do not buy this phone. After a year of using it, my xperia protection enable it self after draining my battery. Xperia Anti Theft Protection has a bug which you cannot activated it even entering your correct account and That was my case so I brought it into the nearest service center to unlock it. They fixed it and successfully unlocked my phone. Worst case is that it is only just the beginning. After unlocking my phone, it started to misbehave. System starting to stop responding, SIM will randomly stop working etc so I brought it again to service center. Once again, they fixed it, they've managed to have my sim signal back, etc..
After a month of using it. It happened again, same thing system not responding, sim is undetectable, no imei, worst is my xperia keyboard is not working too.. So I brought it for the 3rd TIME. ONCE AGAIN THEY MANAGED TO FIXED THE PROBLEM. After using it again for 3 months same thing happened! problem become worst. The main OS is not responding, I've got blue screen, loading screen takes 30 minutes then crashed. I will not bring this phone anymore to service center. Im gonna buy another brand and wont use sony product anymore. This is a warning guys.
