Here are a few more things I found out after a few weeks of using Xperia M (C1905):
The main cause of heating in this device (at least what I found in mine) is actually not the heavy usage of gaming or apps. It's the 3G mobile data activity.
As I said in my previous review, the part that gets hot is actually only the top half of the device, which is probably inconvenient to some, but better than when the whole device gets hot to others.
Here is my classification of heat-causing activities in the scale of 0% (cool) to 100% (super hot):
With mobile data off:
Screen off, no activity - 0%
Casual activities - 5%
Playing games - 10 to 20%
Heavy games - 20 to 30%
Ongoing call below 10 min - 2%
Ongoing call below 50 min - 5%
Ongoing call, 142 min my personal maximum - 20%
screen off (background data activity) - 5%
Casual activities - 10%
Browsing & connection activities - 30%
Playing games - 20 to 35%
Heavy games - 35 to 50%
Ongoing call below 10 min - 10%
Ongoing call below 50 min - 25%
Mobile data on:
screen off (background data activity) - 20%
Casual activities - 25%
Browsing & connection activities - 75%
offline games - 40 to 60%
Online games - 50 to 80%
Ongoing call below 10 min - 40%
Ongoing call below 50 min - 60%
Better don't play games or use the phone at all.
So, the main cause of heat is 3G mobile data activity. wifi? not so much.
It's also a battery eater too. I switched the mobile data on in the morning at 100% juice, found out drops to 89% 3 hours later without any usage at all.
Total opposite when mobile data is off, it can easily last for 2 full days on casual usage.

Hi all! sorry for long text ;P
I have a problem with my Xperia M (C1905) and headphones.
I have a pair of headphones model Yamaha pro 400 and I can't get any sound to them on Xperia M, the music just plays on the speaker in the phone itself and not in the headphones. It works fine with the headset/headphones that comes with the telefphone from the box.
Why is that?! The headphones (Yamaha Pro 400) worked perfectly on my previous phone and works on my computer!
Please anyone have any ideas of what it could be?
Sorry for bad english.
I am really enjoying this phone so far. I can run all apps with good performance, good design, thin, good height, good quality, 4 inch screen. It was not expensive compared to other phones. perfect phone for me.
