Finally got my M2 updated to Kitkat 4.4.2 official firmware today (18 Aug).
So far no issue encountered. Apps run smoothly.
Yes, now you could place app data to the sdcard and free up internal memory storage!
The update is done via Sony PC Companion on PC.The process took approx. 45 mins.
Apparently Sony does not allow ART runtime switch.it's rather strange.
I will review camera apps etc. in detailed later...
So far, so GOOD.
I bought this a week ago, I dint any issues with this phone. i use wifi on it almost all day n i dint find any lagging problem. the browers is fast compared many smartphones. bit low on camera quality but its still alright. i use apps n play a few games for few hours & at the end of d day the phone is still on.
Overall this is a good phone to buy. But the cost is bit high..

If you stop using the Auto mode, EVERYTHING turns out ok.
Instead use the Manual mode + various ISO setting as well as HDR; you will b surprised that M2 has a good camera.
Hi it's Me again...
I accidentally drop my phone yesterday in a shopping center from about 1.5 meter high when holding my son. Amazingly, it's okay and there's not even a single dent or scratch on it. I guess it might be Z1/Z2 master design that helps this? Perhaps...
I also just realize that all my music stored in my M2 can be updated by the help of Sony Walkman Application. Simply tap setting (3 square dot) on the right top corner and tap "Download Music Info". When it's done, all of my music (even if I renamed it wrongly before) were updated included with its art as well. Wonderful!
Indeed, M2 camera is not the best out there. But since Camera is not something that I used often in a phone, it's quality didn't bother me at all. I only need it sometimes for work and if I do need a camera, I will bring my pocket camera instead. ^_^
Browser works awesomely fast too. It loads images pretty quick. Don't know what happened on those who comment it was slow. Have you guys check with operator or WiFi connection? I even download a 50MB+ apps in just 20 seconds where transfer rate on WiFi hits 2MB/Second.
M2 might not be the best hardware in the market, but Sony Support make it really handy and exclusive...
So far, I'm still very satisfied.
I will comeback and update it again.

I bought an M2 for my mom, I myself have a Z1. Her headphone, the one the came with it, is not supported, tried mine headphone, not supported either. Tried both on my Z1. both work.
The curious thing, both, on the M2, do not work and the sound continues going out from the internal speaker, but the button and microphone are working, so it's probably a software problem. But when will it get an update? No idea...

zamryzs, 10 Aug 2014if zenfone 5 against xperia m2, which of these smartphone is the best? because I don't know wh... moreHi Zamrys,
If you need Battery Performance, Reliability, Software Support, Flat and Thin design, Awesome Music Player and Incredible Processor, I recommend M2.
If you rather to have Higher and Crisp display + Camera performance, then Zenfone 5 might suit you better. But take note that Zenfone 5 Battery ain't quite satisfying. My coworker who work right by my side in my office bought Zenfone 5 and do the exact same activity like I was did and His phone only last until 1300hrs.
Also you might also want to consider the after sales support and accessories availability as ASUS is considered a new cellphone brand.
Hope this will help.
I just bought this phone on my birthday couple days ago and tested it performance right after it was out from the box.
I downloaded all essential application that i used, do settings and play games on it until battery reach 15% from 35% pre-charged capacity.
The day after, its fully charged at 0540hrs, i was continued to download all applications that I needed and standby on WiFi about 5-6 hours. Played games, test camera, chat, emails, sync my contacts and check my Facebook.
When I was going to sleep at 2330hrs, i was very surprised that my Sony M2 battery still holds 20% power and still be able to standby for another 5-6 hours!
This is the best phone that I ever had in terms of Battery Capacity, Music, Design, and Processor.
Highly recommended to people who seek performance and reliability in a cellphone.
I think overall the phone is good but the camera is crap! The main camera is too sharp and is rubbish when zoomed in and we'll for the front camera it's so Bad!
