Just got the M2 last night.
On the specs vs price point, really value for money. Nothing to complain about, especially when the phone is packed with specs much more higher than the upcoming release of Nokia's XL in Singapore in couple of days time... Mine is a D2303, with a different Qualcomm's chipset than the much common 822X that can be found in most other budget chinese phones in the market.
The camera is much better than the Nokia Lumia 525, but as with the older Xperia J, pictures taken exhibits some marginal level of pinkish tones like my Blackberry Z10 do... Yeah, manual is highly recommended. The "intelligent mode" by default when camera function is triggered, gives too much enhancement on the pictures that makes the end results too un-natural...
On battery heating... it is common with SONY phones, so as others from other brands, should a user keep the radio/connection channels go on doing other activities, such as gaming, media playback, network sharing, bluetooth music play... It's normal. I had the phone played a full length movie last night, in the end, the heat... or should i say the warmth is roughly about 32*c, which is about the kind of armpit warmth of an active adult.
Battery... i couldn't comment yet, since i had just got the phone last night. But when the set was unboxed at the retailer's counter, sim inserted, engaged to GSM network, after payment played a movie, till midnight 12++, the battery meter drops from initial 50% till 38% at the point where the movie stopped... I guess i have to do a juice down of the battery power today, recharge it to 100% full, engage 3G connection, do some movie looping... then i can determine how long can the phone last per charge...
Complains? Yeah... Besides i don't like the idea of having non-removable in-built battery, the other biggest gripe i have is the damn glossy back, a damn finger print magnet...
Otherwise, this piece is really a good buy!
i bought m2 about 1 week ago...every 10 minutes i use the phone...the temp is rise means my m2 is geting hot...is there anybode can help me what should i do?
-lucky-boy-, 08 Jun 2014I am planning to buy the Sony M2 in July.Has anyone bought it & can you tell me the pros &... moreI just bought this phone yesterday. It is a decent phone, with NFC and it is very sleek (in my opinion)
The camera is okay, the wifi and network is good (supports LTE for mobile data). However, the ram is only 1gb which makes the phone quite slow and a bit laggy when running high end games. The secondary camera is also a bummer, and lets not forget the speakers. Xperia M2 comes with xLoud features, but personally i think the speaker sounded like they are about to explode any second when set to max with xLoud enabled
I am planning to buy the Sony M2 in July.Has anyone bought it & can you tell me the pros & cons from usage experience ?
To test camera you should use Manual mode, never ever use the crappy "Superior auto" mode. It's useless and pictures will look like shit.
Instead choose manual mode, one EV below 0, or HDR activated. Also, chose 4:3 (8Mpixels) instead of the 16:9 (only 5 Mpixels).
Btw, heating is not a problem, its normal when mobile data / wifi is used, or in games.
