For those who want their m2 to last longer, factory reset the phone just like what I did this morning. It really improves the battery!
The things I don't like about this phone is the low memory and sharpness, poor camera and battery after the 5.1.1 update. Don't upgrade if you don't want these problems. But overall, it is a lot snappier and a better performer than galaxy a8. I have been using this phone for more than one year but the new galaxy a8 lags like 3 times more. I'm happier with xperia m2 than galaxy a8.
Great phone, rock solid GPS, killer battery life UNTIL 5.1.1 released. Does NOT support Lollipop.
As of 4-11-2015 Sony support are unwilling to support any backdate to previous version of software.
Current bugs: 5.1.1 kills GPS, Wi-fi, Camera, 60% battery drain in 8 hours and your handset will get warm doing nothing.
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2015And how is it if I upgrade mine from jelly bean to kitkat?is it better overall? Yeah, still us... more Bro don't update to kiatkat 4.4.4
Use the default android version. Kit kat version is very bad. My camera quality got worsened. Phone sometimes hang also. Now I am thinking to upgrade to lollipop.
And how is it if I upgrade mine from jelly bean to kitkat?is it better overall? Yeah, still using jelly bean.
Sony m2 :)
The worst phone
Picture quality too worst
Friends Dont buy this phone
Ali, 30 Oct 2015I have had my Sony Xperia m2 for around a year and half now and bought it mainly for its camer... moreThe only way is go back to kitkat since sony still didn't give future update for camera fix (and maybe they never give it). I already downgraded mine. Trust me kiktat is better.
I have had my Sony Xperia m2 for around a year and half now and bought it mainly for its camera. Up to the recent update the picture quality was exceptional, however after installing 5.1.1 lollipop I have seen a huge diminish in the picture quality that I am receiving. The photos are overly sharp and painting like with a poor colour quality. If anyone has any idea of how this will be fixed, I would appreciate a response.
Phone certainly not on high class standard but, as it IS a mid-range phone (concerning it's price) I'd say its worth the purchase.
manish, 23 Oct 2015Same happened with me also after updating to lollipop , camera quality decreased.......!!!!!!!I have been suffering from the same problem has been overcome return the factory settings of the phone but then all will be lost personal data
Ever since the update 2015 I've lost all my personal contact ringtones my phone doesn't ring very loud even though it says my ringtones are there when a contact rings it's just the same ringtone for everybody I never had any trouble before the update
I'm used m2 aqua as a gps via Here maps.I drove more than 15.000 kilometers with it in this summer and it is worked perfectly.After upgrade to lollipop it does't work any more,not miss the location just never find it....so please how I can downgrade it to 4.4.4
bad experience while calling in the new update(lolipop) while making a call,else it is good
Immensely disappointed after upgrading my phone to 5.1.1 lollipop..Photos clicked are so very poor, no detail whatsoever as if its a painting..Haven't expected this from SONY. Have always been a sony's fan and hope that this issue will get resolved soon..Thank you..
