Hi guys, for those who have an M dual I have a question. I will be buying this phone but I need to confirm this first, is the Xperia M Dual able to receive SMS and send SMS at the same time for both sim cards? For example, I'm busy texting on sim 1. I am constantly receiving/sending text like chatting. Will this mean that I will/will not be able to receive text messages from SIM 2 when I am constantly using SIM 1 for text messaging? I heard some info that you can't receive/send SMS on both sims at the same time. Usually I send tons of messages on 1 number then also on another number (group annoucements usually). How about for call? Can the two numbers be called at the same time? How about for traffic/data. If I turn SIM 1 data, will this make SIM 2 unreachable? Cheaper brands here in the local market can send/receive calls & text at the same time.
AnonD-18715, 24 Nov 2013Which camera app you're using....
Like many said i don't find the camera as average from your... moreI use 3 depending of special settings:
1.Snap cam hd paid on daylight it's simply the best for it...has also a great video recorder...
2.Camera fv-5 for its handy commands and focus lock.
3.Ucam on night flash portrait has some nice features.
Camera is better and better, hope for new updates:
I will do some more tests on stock camera after the latest update.

Best mid-range smartphone by Sony in this range. Audio, video, performance and also camera are best. Great job, no doubts go for it.
yce, 23 Nov 2013yes it really does, and maybe on future will do better, but remember: no stock camera!

Well friend, i only wanted to help about finding an information...
Honestly it's so sad that Sony developers does not fully realise how it's to use day-to-day the phone, not only to manufacture it.
My most issues were with camera (i do not have the dual one...in my country mostly, in my region, is's almost no service available for Sony smartphones, so dual it's quite late on the market) but, i haven't got any answer (on Sony care) about a more evident fact in camera settings(even pc companion it's not working). Were only my guessings about someone who did read them in a way or another. My prayers were not answered by this date, by those latest updates.
I've updated again (not by pc companion) my M and not a big deal (maybe because it's a beta testing firmware).
About your sadness i know it's kind of unfaire fact, but even with that, somehow M remains the best priced option android smartphone. I hope as much as you, that next updates will solve the camera, storage and this dual issue as best as possible. Sony did good things in the past but still not perfect, i honestly belive M will reach the best of so-called marketing perfection!
