It has been a good first smartphone, still in daily use after 3 years.
Where I was stung was the internal memory, advertised as 4GB but only 1.5GB available for apps due to all the pre-installed cr@p, I wrongly assumed the SD card could be used for apps. A few OS glitches which have needed googling to solve,
Two technical problems I am facing with this mobile. First one, Its microphone is not working after three years and I always used to press external speaker on while conversation. Secondly charging problem; I have replaced many times data cable.
leo, 11 Sep 2017I have had a very annoying issue with camera. it is getting worse. I have checked the sittings... moreAll of you guy now we are on Sept 2017... what do you expect from the 2013 phone ha ha ha ha ha ha ha LOL
I have had a very annoying issue with camera. it is getting worse. I have checked the sittings and it's at 5 MP, still the picture look like it's 2 MP. is it a software issue?
I'm also getting the 'password needed to decrypt storage' message. Sony Support's answer was to suggest I buy another phone, even though this one is less that 3 years old. I'll probably take that advice, but it won't be another Sony! Appalling customer service. If this was a ploy via a software upgrade to get customers to buy new phones, it looks like it's going to misfire, big time.
My xperia m got 'password to decrypt storage', I already given up (my phone is 3 years old), so I lay this phone rest in peace
Screen issues, bluish color.. Not enough RAM and capacity/ ROM. Camera quite good, battery very poor but otherwise it's been a good ride
z1 is a lot better than this. Xperia m cant handle most of the games avaliable on play store
Chupacabras, 20 Jul 2017It is very laggy. I have this phone for 3 years, and it is more and more laggy and buggy. I ha... moreyou can uninstall application,games if you not in use, you can empty the internal storage memory, you can clear the cache data from setting>storage>clear cache, & go to settings>about phone & create developer options in setting & you can windows animation scale select off, and also stop the application if you are do not in use then your mobile is very fast & quick to action
It is very laggy. I have this phone for 3 years, and it is more and more laggy and buggy. I have restored it to factory defaults several months ago, and it did not help. Probably all the updates slow this phone down. And the capacity of memory storage is very small. It was soft of OK 3 years ago, but now in year 2017, I would not recommend it.
I love this phone.I have never dropped other device as much as this one but it is so hard and robust. Battery is still good after 4 years. Slow and small but hard as a rock :)
After 3 years phone is still working amazing...what an amazing phones m and m2 were!
Darkfalz, 04 Mar 2017This was a great little phone. Only major shortcoming was the 4GB storage (2GB for apps) which... moreI am not sure you know this or not but you can install 7.1.2 on this beast without no problem. And internal memory you can increase by choosing adoptable storage option in nougat settings
this phone is amazing , however the internal memory sucks. over all good phone, guys this is 2013 phone so stop complaining buy iphone if you want hahaha
The Xperia M is a good phone, better for work than gaming and souch, but still it's a good phone, I had it for about two and a half years, but it lasted longer than the htc desire 620 I got a year after using the Xperia M, and the htc desire is dead, personally the Xperia is better, because it lasted so many hits and falls, and the memory isn't that bad.
Both the wife and I brought the same phone, wanting to come away from the iPhone. What a bad decision! I think this Sony phone is possibly the worst phone I have ever owned. The memory is shocking, always full and asking you to get rid of apps / data etc. Also after a year of ownership my wife and I are both having charging issues. The charging port is definitely a weak spot.
Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish.
I'm going back to apple
