I'm using a Xperia m. I've tried many of the
popular call recording apps in the market. But all
of them mainly records my voice (what I'm
speaking to mic). Other party's voice can be
hardly heard and sometimes only my voice
Is there any other effective app for recording both
parties voices clearly?

Review cum Problems of Sony Xperia M (C1904)
Android version 4.1.2
Build number: 15.1.A.1.9
Kernel version: 3.4.0

Bought this Xperia M (black) on 20th August 2013 from Jumbo Retail.
Hardware: It packs a great uni-body design just like the Xpera Z. It also has a slot for attaching a cord/sling. Rubberised back with big “Sony” branding in the center and “Xperia” at the bottom. The aluminium power button is also very elegant in looks.
As for the processor and RAM, It houses a dual core 1Ghz Snapdragon Krait processor which is from the latest series of Snapdragon Processors said to be very powerful and battery efficient coupled with Adreno 305 GPU (Again the best in this price group and better than PwrVGX GPU’s of some MTK Cortex processors). Also has very eye catching LED notifications light.
Software: I won’t talk of the features of Jelly Bean but yes the Xperia Timescape theme in all of these 2013 Xperia Phones is outstanding. My last phone was a 2011 Xperia Mini ST15i and since then the skin of Timescape has improved a lot. (You won’t get such a good experience of android in any of the ugly looking Samsung’s Touchwiz or HTC senseless HTC sense - yes I am a sony fan). It has a very good feature of small apps and also to open and access recent apps. Sony might also update all of the 2013 phones to Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie next year.
Camera: Not the camera I expected, flash is mis-caliberated as well as the focus about 40% times (sony shall have to look into it in the coming updates for the phone), Flash doesn’t fire while using HDR and you need to have super stable hands while using HDR in low light (though it does what it says, takes up nice photos in low light). 720p Video Recording is extremely crisp and good, front camera is decent as well – No complaints here.
Music: Earphones are on-the-ear, clear and decent but the MH-650 in-ear earphones I got with my last Xperia Mini are a class part but unfortunately they don’t work with Xperia M. Music from Loudspeaker is really loud and amazing.
Performance: It has the best of processors and RAM tuned in the best way and thus delivers exceptional good lag free experience, I tried playing Temple Run 2, pressed home, immediately pressed call button to make call and it happened without any delay (Note: This is a small test to check speed in everyday usage, several badly tuned phones fail this even being dual core and having 1 GB ram). Phones also plays 1080p videos seamlessly using MxPlayer.
Display: at 245ppi in this 4” display, its better than Xperia L, Lumia 520, 620, Grand, Core etc.
Battery: 1750 mah battery which is equal to that of Xperia L is more efficient in Xperia M, mainly bcoz of 0.3 inch smaller screen than that of L. Goes for 12-15 hours on heavy usage without using any “Stamina Mode”, I am a power user and when I say heavy usage, I mean really heavy usage i.e. calls, messaging, continuous whatsapp, few photos as well.
Others: It has NFC no other phone in this price group has that, I bought Xperia Smart Tags online for Rs.250 for 2 tags. Very useful if you know how to make use this extremely handy feature. Phone reception is very clear, light weight. It has premium build quality. Sony features inside the phone like SenseMe slideshow are also very good.
Problems: My last phone had 420 mb internal storage, and had ICS, in ICS I was allowed to move apps to SD card with the same thing I overlooked that this phone has 4 GB internal storage and thought that I will move apps to my newly bought SanDisk Ultra 32 GB SDHC Class 10 card but to my surprise Android 4.1 Jelly Bean does not allow any app to moved to the SD card (blame Google here not Sony), Thus, it has ended the possibility for this phone Xperia M to be future proof unless you root it (void warranty) and become superuser to move apps to SD Card. – I shall do this after my warranty expires :D.
Bigger Problems: (Before you continue to read please note that I am a poweruser, I use all the features of the phone and observe them very closely and also want all things to work perfectly, you might or might not experience these issue in normal usage)
Problem 1: While network strength is poor on 3g Network and you use cellular data the phone tends to heat sometimes. Its not a problem unless you make a call in that time and then feel the so uncomfortable heat on your ear.
Problem 2: Camera focus and flash is miscaliberated, Flash should fire in HDR mode.
While taking snap in very close range (Macro) the phone can not just manage to focus properly. Sometimes the flash either completely washes out the image or sometimes I get just a black image and nothing else.
Problem 3: Use GPS in car, while charging and the phone will turn into a heater, becomes extremely hot, you cannot place it near your ear while calling its so damn hot, all phones get hot while using GPS but this one crosses all limits.
Typical Review: Buy it, its worth it. Camera problems and heating issues will be solved in upcoming updates. I know they will because the Xperia Minis ‘s heating while charging problem disappeared like magic after updates. I know Sony, I trust the company.
Music: 9/10 (9 because earphones are not in-ear)
Overall: 9/10 (This is my opinion since phone is way better than Samsung Galaxy Grand (cortex processor, bad screen ppi), Xperia L (poor screen 228ppi, not so good 8mp camera, not so good battery), Galaxy Core (again cortex processor, bad screen ppi).
kenxtra, 28 Aug 2013does it have Tv out??NO tv-out... but if u have a DLNA certified device you can connect it
who would be the winner if we compare it with LG optimus L7II or with samsung galaxy Ace 3
I am planning to buy this mobile as it meets all my requirements. Can someone tell if the SIM slot is micro-SIM or mini-SIM?
sekhar sreeram, 28 Aug 2013Please guide me
Galxy core or xperia m
Which one is the best
And I'm game lover which is... moreit is for every reason better than core
dont be so ambitious for camera
it is ok not that bad
in future it would be improved in coming updates ( just like xperia L )
if you are a gamer then never never go for core.
core has unnamed gpu while xperia M has best gpu in its class (adreno 305) which supports every game.
and the quality of Sony products cant be matched by samsung at all.
you will definitely get an update for Xperia M so dont be upset over camera it would be improved soon
see other features
2 krait core processors
one touch functions
better look and ui
and *****you won't get any scratches on xperia M due to scratch resistant glass i bet****
go for it
all this is said by someone who has used this phone.

keval, 28 Aug 2013Thanks.....that was Half lie !!!!!!!!!!!
Xperia M is a good phone....i agree !!!
but as said here battery backup is not gud ... regardless the 1700Mah, it stays only almost 15hrs
And you cannot move the apps to SD.. noteven by using any software...(i hv tried all of them buddy ) ..Only way is to root the phone ... but ur warranty will be void
