I bought this phone last month without big expectations but I was really surprised by the design and by the performance of the phone especially after the update to KitKat which brings new features and unleashes all the power of this phone. Highly reccomended.
This is my first smartphone.I have never done a system update before.Can someone guide me step by step to update my Sony Xperia M2(D2303) to the new kit kat update 4.4.2(18.3.C.0.37).Are there any measures I should take before updating ?
Waiting kitat for central europe 3 -.-
But the phone is still good for me with 4.3 fast, no lag
Sold my M2 with half price after 2 months, very disappointed as the phone keeps hanging without any games/ applicatons installed. The front camera is a very very big fail, u cant even see urself under low light condition. I am much happier with lenovo S960 now.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2014Hi, I am planning to buy in a few days. I read your comment that the result of updating the OS... moreUpdate OS to official Kitkat 4.4.2 firmware is now being released by Sony based on various regions and telco.
If your region is ready to receive the update you will b notified via the notification. Then it will tell you the update needs to be executed via your pc through PC Companion by Sony.
Just follow the step by step on screen instruction when you plug in your phone to the pc.
Read instructions carefully and don't rush through the process.
If you haven't received notification to update then be patient. It will come.
Or, you can go to phone's Setting, then click About Phone, then click Software Update and check System. You will find out whether the update is ready for your M2.
Oh yes, the Kitkat update is good and effective on software optimization. Make sure you follow update instruction carefully.

I read your comment that the result of updating the OS to Kitkat is good. Can you help us or post prolly the steps how you did it? If not mistaken there's something that you said that it should be done thru PC. I really appreciate your help. Thanks!

jomzky, 25 Aug 2014sony xperia m2 or xiaomi mi3? need ur opinion pleaseIf you dont play heavy games, then go for M2. Othertwise Mi3 has more powerful chips for the purpose.
Another thing, Mi3 runs on MIUI system; if you like the UI it is very good.
M2 is on more familiar Android style topped with Sony UI.
