Nearly all my music jumps from quiet to loud and this nuisanse of a command totally ruins the loud parts. Really, really bad idea.
AS the Xperia Zs baby brother, I thought that the M2 was going to be a pretty good med range phone. ere are my opinions and facts after 8 weeks of usage:
Price: £149.99 or with EE £30 cash with £13.99pm contract Style: Slim, has a nice weight to it. Nice big 4.8" screen. I think it looks pretty sweet.
Use: I only need a phone for calls, texts, music, camera and the occassional bit of ebanking - The Camera is sweet although it got bad reviews but I see nothing wrong with it, texting and calling is normal and online usage is pretty fast and smooth.
Now... The issues
My phone is 8 weeks old. It has crashed "Sudden Death" on me no less than 4 times. One period in particular the camera area dangerously over heated, i mean, really hot. This happened when upgrading from Jeallybean to KitKat. The phone died for about 20 hours. Totally non-responsive and all of a sudden the next day, it switched on but with 1% battery life.
Since then, the screen takes 3-5 seconds to display when blacked-out. The ear-sensor which blacks the screen out when on a call takes about 5 seconds to display when moved from your ear (a really big pain in the ass when calling an 0845 number) and beyond the sluggishness of it all and constant crashing after the KitKat upgrade, it still crashes when attempting to store onto the SD card.
I am just back from EE store who flashed it there-and-then. When this was done - SIM card not recognised. My phone is now on its way to England and I am praying I get a replacement...
Final Thought: I know mid-range phones aren't meant to be as good as the £300-£500 range, but you would expect it to function AS A PHONE. I believe we perfected the basics of a mobile phone 20 years ago. They spend too much time making all the new twerks and tweeks that the basic functions are being overlooked. Tis a shame.
My m2 dual camera is not workng properly.
All d pics i take cmes blur...
Camera quality is not good...
Is there any solution here
jagdeesh , 23 Sep 2014Poor camera qualityIf you (or rather, your phone) still remain in the out of box Jelly Bean OS, then YES, the camera is bad.
If you have updated to Kitkat, just learn about how to use the correct camera settings for shooting. With the update, M2 camera software also received its upgrade. Frankly, it's not bad.

Dont move selected shortcuts data to sdcard.
It is just a common issue.
When boot up, these data in sdcard won't be executed...
Hi folks, I've update my D2303 with official KitKat 4.4.2 update build number 18.3.C.0.39 around 10 days ago and my firs impression of the update are very good. However I've noticed that when I restart my phone shortcuts to home screen of all applications that I've moved to SD card are missing and I have to make the shortcuts to home screen once again.
Did anyone else have the same issue?
Do you think that if I reset my phone and wipe all data this issue will be fixed?
Thank you in advance for your support.

Those who encountered issues becos they didn't go thru the process properly.
OTA (wifi) or thru PC is the same. So long as you read the update instruction carefully.
I was wondering if i could get a virus if i update to android kit 18.3.C.0.37. Can i use wi-fi or do i have to use a computer to do the update please?
IF Sony Xperia M2 increase Ram to 1.5 GB -- it will be Excellent
