I have had this phone since 2015. It still works just fine. There is not a scratch nor a crack on the screen, the Touchscreen works great still. And I have not been using gently to say the least. One time I dropped it in 50 cm of snow. Looked for I for 5 minutes And it worked fine.
Avoid like the plague it does not have a recovery mode. It just vibrates 3 times and does nothing. So if you have a password on it it's goodbye phone because you can't reset it if you forget it. Rest assured I will never buy or recommend Sony phones to anyone including my worst enemies.
I purchased this phone in may 2014, till now I enjoyed my phone company with no issues. The photo clarity is awesome, battery condition is always good. The music was fabulous in sony phones compared to others. Sony is best in camera and music. Now I am upgrading to Xperia A1 as M2 is 3G supported not 4G,less ram i.e., 1GB and low internal memory i.e., 8GB which results less apps maintainance . But I am missing my M2, hope A1 don't disappointed me.
I've used this phone for 3 years now (since 2017). The battery life is still awesome like day 1. Normal, heavy usage (fb, browsing, use as hotspot/tethering) can last me more than a day.. I even once left the phone idle for 4-5 days and the battery still is at 60-70% which is amazing for a 2300mah rated battery. never really bother to update to the latest android version since the space is really limited and I'm guessing it will make the phone lags in some apps. But the downside is, the phone can be erratic and have a mind of its own sometimes (suddenly restarted, freeze, battery level dropped and turned off, the sim card cannot be detected, and whatsapp frequently crashed).. But of course, happened only once or twice every half a year or so.. I guess i would still be using it till it rot if not because of that great battery life. I have another phone which is a lenovo a806 which rated its battery caps as 2300mah too, but only work for 8 hours or less and needs recharge, and yes, the phone is not even a year old yet! so SONY >all! would buy another sony for sure.
my think is bad phone is always stop i cant play 1 game i cant do thinks 1 g ram 8 rom i think is rly bad
I have been using this phone for 3 years. And I am proud of this phone. The battery last longer unless if you use 4G network. It is quite durable and solid build smartphone. Good Stamina mode.Very nice features for mid range smartphone in 2014 ( I still remember Walkman :)).
Of course, this phone is pretty outdated and offers only 1GB Ram. So, you cannot basically open the multiple task at the same time or the phone will lagging. The final updated Android for this phone was Android 5.1.1., whereas many smartphone nowadays offer you the latest Android update.
The worst thing about this smartphone is front camera. Definitely not recommended for selfie lover. Sometimes, I cannot use this phone on outdoor due to the sunlight. The pixel is not that high, basically you will having some problem when messaging on outdoor. Charging the battery when using the phone can get overheating. The internal memory is very low, very dependable high storage on SD Card.
You can use this smartphone for daily use, but I strongly recommend to pick other smartphones. Sony M2 software was already heavily outclassed by the competitors. Even Moto G4 provide a better stats with affordable price. 3GB Ram smartphone is become common nowadays. 1GB Ram smartphones no longer become relevant. But, I will continue to use Sony M2 because the battery life is awesome.
I've been using the phone about 3years now I'm still enjoying the phone, very durable.
I have been using this phone for over 3 years now. I have to say that I've used it quite roughly over the years, and I have to say, the phone is pretty durable. Probably due to the rubberised edges. It's not the best with performance, but after two major software updates, I can say that the phone performs just as good as it did when I first got it. I haven't had any problems apart from the absolutely terrible front camera, and the pretty low internal storage space. It's a great phone but I don't believe it's suitable for you if you're looking to buy in 2017. However, it sure has kept to Sony's reputation of long lasting phones.
I have been using this phone for over 2 years. So far it is still functioning well. The only thing is that it does not have a good front camera. Selfies dont look nice.
Razvan, 19 Jun 2017Sony Xperia M2 or Samsung Galaxy J5 ? I had xperia m2 for 1 year, it's a really good phone, certainly better than j5
Hi guys.I have a sony xperia M2D2303,but recently my phone,has been giving me problems.It would turn it self on and off again,but when its turn on itself its then freezes.Please help me.
I used the M2 for little over 2 years. After about 1 1/2 years there was a issue with the sims. When I connect to my phone data, both sims stated to stop working and the network is not available. now even when the phone is on and i can see the network bars, if someone calls it says the phone is switched off and i get an alert after a while. From what i see, the problems in the M2 are mainly related to dual sims and network. other than that it's ok.
Hey guys, anyone have last updated fb messenger with new features... I'm on Android 5.1 lollipop but my messanger have no new features... Any solution? Why is that? Thanks.
Well, after all I read about the "upgrade" issue, after months of doubt ,if im going to upgrade my Xperia M2, finally I've decided to do an upgrade and based on my experience, it was a success and features are all functioning well and it has gone way better than before. About Android 5.1 camera issue is not far than when it was on Kitkat. For me i dont expect that much from a midrange phone like this one than its high end brothers, just simply having the SONY logo on my phone is what im proud of. BTW the build number I have right now was 18.6.A.0.182.
