Jean83, 31 Aug 2013Average Sony phone again.They continue to cheapskate on display and camera as usual.Fast chips... moreI fully agree with you. Sony xm is a very cheap phone. What u get is what u paid for. Screen is far better on my xolo q700. Built quality is less than average with sqeeking plastic all around. Display is straight from a cheep Chinese vendor. Can't really compare with xperia p or u or sola. Tough competitor for micromax etc. if u want a fast chipset and graphics with poor display from a reputed company, there's hardly anything that can beat it.
ruchika, 02 Sep 2013ya it is gud n better in all specifications......but m not satisfy wid it. coz m buying galaxy... more@Ruchika. Galaxy s4 mini price 28k and Xperia M is 13k phone. 15k difference :P
I brought this cell two days back... its fast snappy and delight to use...
not so sexy (cant expect it to be at 12500rupees)
the first thing i checked was
BOOTLOADER UNLOCKED ALLOWED: NO
thats was unexpected .... as its not a free sim phone
ya it is gud n better in all specifications......but m not satisfy wid it. coz m buying galaxy s4 mini...., how's dis one
[deleted post]Sorry! I meant she is not a gamer! But Asphalt 7 and 8 was installed and tried by me, 7 worked flawlessly while 8 overheated it a lot! But is a good gamer device.
Move obb file/folder to sdcard and then while gaming put it back to the phone emory, that way u can temporarily solve memory issue!
As you have read this entire review, this is the best phone in its class! no one can compete with it, performance n battery life are awesome. Camera n whitebalance will be fixed via update....
So dont think much just buy it.
Only if you are flexible with your choice of OS and are fine with lumia 520, then that is this phone's strongest contender! Else just buy xperia m!
Bought it for my mom! She is a gamer so all usual apps and some average running games! Heats while on internet but every phone does! So overall this is d best phone out there....
james79, 01 Sep 2013Performance should be identical to xperia L which is above average for its class.Performance numbers are in the review, and you can see clearly that its not the same. The M actually betters the L in some cases but mostly its left behind. They do not use the same chipset, things like cache size is not the same, L is generally a little better but they are both ok. Whats more important is that they have the same GPU, class leading.
jaLp, 01 Sep 2013Guyzz.hows xperia m???what u say this phone is gud performance ya nt???i want to buy???plz.say... morePerformance should be identical to xperia L which is above average for its class.

james79, 01 Sep 2013It may be synthetic scores but real life gameplay is awsome - even beats my xperia T with bett... moreI do not game at anything but my 3x27" eyefinity rig :))
As a phone with couple of productivity app and a few more for killing time,the difference would be undetectable.
P.S.enjoy your games at 4" ;)
Jean83, 31 Aug 2013Average Sony phone again.They continue to cheapskate on display and camera as usual.Fast chips... moreIt may be synthetic scores but real life gameplay is awsome - even beats my xperia T with better display and more power! I'd rather have awsome gameplay than laggy mediocre game play with better screen!
abhijitbiswas, 31 Aug 2013But xperia M has expandable storage unlike the last year's xperia U. You do get 5b on xperia U... moreThat expandable storage will be useful for photos, vids and music but for apps this is dreadful! For me its a no go as I use xperia T which has far superior internal memory!
Only problem with T is the gaming peformance compared to L and M as some how sony has done a great job with the latest phones- just check the evidence on youtube!
very nice Entery level android phone with dual core processor and (jb),but wait to reduce the price speed! and go for it (BLACK is my choice);-)
Average Sony phone again.They continue to cheapskate on display and camera as usual.Fast chipset?!?! Since when krait become that much faster than A9?!?
And finally,prefer to have an excellent screen than few points more in sintetic bench.
Rajat Khanna, 31 Aug 2013I sugest people not buy this phone. This phone has a restart problem......Yes you are correct im facing the same issue daily as it is mentioned in the review itself, this phone has not only has average display and camera but also this restart and crashing problem as im saying this as an advanced android user and I'm sure I have not installed any 3rd party apps so never consider buying Sony.. Just think why sony is offering so much features in such a price why not Samsung or htc?? Think
minori_aoi, 30 Aug 2013As a former Xperia U user, I think it's going to be a worthy successor of Xperia U. Cheap pric... moreI'm using Xperia U as my secondary phone, i need multimedia storage only on my primary device. So, U is clearly better for me, and even if I load up 2GB MP3 I have lots of space left. I understand that U is somewhat limited for those using it as their only phone, but M is more limited still.
For moving internal memory to external watch youtube dedemonstration.
james79, 30 Aug 2013Well the xperia M has even more limited storage!But xperia M has expandable storage unlike the last year's xperia U. You do get 5b on xperia U but thats it.
On xperia m its 1.5gb of the box, if u uninstall most unnecessary apps(on sony allows to remove preinstalled apps, Samsung doesnt) it wil go to 1.7gb and once u insert a sd card n move all multimedia on the card, u have almost 2gb free memory to install whatever u want.
And we can all hope n request sony to roll-out a move to sd card update! for all xperia jb devices!
