Sleepingduck, 06 Jul 2016Guys,my friend had an Xperia Z(bought on 2012) and it is still okay now..no lags or issues at ... moreI have it. It's ok but it's not worth 200Â€. Better purchases for that price range are:
iPhone 5s (good update support; used)
HTC One M8
LG G4 (but I heard it has a boot loop problem, if you don't want to risk that, buy an other phone; sometimes there are good offers for it, if not used)
Nexus 5x (very good update support for an android)
Galaxy S5 (used)
LG G Flex 2
Oneplus 2 (not sure about the price in other countries, in Germany it's 400Â€ but it should be 200Â€ I think)
Xiaomi Redmi 3s (newest)
I have a question, I need chagne my phone soon, and I thinking a bout this M4 Aqua, and Samsung J7. Which is the best?
mondo kabando, 05 Jul 2016This phone is great for those who like to take pictures, great quality, best there is. It is a... moreLol no camera of this phone is so bad. I compared it to iPhone 5 and that made better pictures. And it's also soooo slow. It needs 5 seconds to take a picture with Sony camera app, with google camera still 2,5 seconds. So if you really want a phone with a good camera, don't buy that phone.
Honestly this is the worst phone that i have ever had. I bought this phone because the company advertised it like some type of God phone. for example,they stated that it has 2 days of battery and that i can watch my favorite movie 36 times in a row, but i struggled to get through my day barley using the phone. after about 3 months of me owning this phone the microphone on my phone unexpectedly broke down and i had to talk to people on the phone through speaker. i called Sony and they told me to factory reset my phone which was a struggle to save all my stuff to my PC. after i reset my phone, i noticed that the phones microphone still did not work. Sony then told me to sen my phone to the repair store and promised that i will have it back in 2 weeks. this was a struggle because i had to use a flip phone that my service providers gave to me because it was part of the contract. at the time of writing this review, i have yet to get my phone back from Sony. it has been 2 and a half months and whenever i call Sony, they never give me a solid response of to where my phone is and when i am gonna get it back. i decided to buy the samsung galaxy s7 and have been satisfied ever since my buy. the phone is a little bit pricey but i pan on selling my sony xperia m4 aqua when i (or if i ever) get it back. also some other complaints of the phone is the overheating after 5 minutes of use, the extremely slow charge time, the terrible screen, and the tremendously horrible camera. also the phone is still running lollipop 5.01 when android 7 is in beta
worst phone ive had in a very long time, worked great for the first 6 months, never ever put it in water speaker fails and phone started restarting almost about an hour long bluthooth couldent start, flash failed, couldent even check my airtime *100# faild dmci error and the list goes on. my phone is in the vodacom repairs center now.
Suddenly my phone can't read sd card !!! Anyone can help me ?? What should I do ??
so i brought my phone in the water today (M4 aqua) and turns out NEVER PUT IN THE WATER my phone is still vibrating and the screan will not turn on anymore it glitches out and that but i cant do anything rn im going to hae to get a new phone i really liked this phone alot but now im having second thoughts
Soon marshmallow update
The only cons i found was the battery life,the screen display could be better and the 8gb of memory which nowadays are not enough.
Overall a good phone for its price
Sleepingduck, 06 Jul 2016Guys,my friend had an Xperia Z(bought on 2012) and it is still okay now..no lags or issues at ... moreA very big differences.
Z is many many many times better than this.
If only call/sms then get, but other than this, forget it.
I bought this phone 14 days back. Now front camera is not working. Pls help..
Guys,my friend had an Xperia Z(bought on 2012) and it is still okay now..no lags or issues at all(he sometimes use it underwater)..i'm interested with Sony so i decided to try this phone cuz i can't afford a Z5..can u guys tell me whether this is a good or bad phone..advantages and disadvantages perhaps?thx for spending ur time
This phone is the worst phone ever. mine has now been replaced for a new one 3 times. even the guy in tec support told me his son has one and they are crap. Sony release crytical updates that screwed it up first. then a new one. then overheated all the while and blue screened. then a new phone as it could not be fixed. then the camera dosnt work and keeps telling me no service no sim inserted guess wht.... a new phone .. these are crap do not buy one . I took advice of tec support. keep using it , keep sending it back eventualy they will run out of staock.. I will then recieve a different model.... Never buying a sony ever again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This phone is great for those who like to take pictures, great quality, best there is. It is also larger (length and width) to most phones from it's time.
The Reasons for buying this phone is the battery life !
The fact that you can really use it underwater and take pictures
The Music sounds incredible (even Iphone 6s cannot match the quality believe me ! )
It supports 4G LTE and will get the Android 6.0 Update which is nice
also it has 2GB of ram but you already know that anyway
the minus is really the fact that sometimes gets hot and 8GB of storage are nothing (but SD card slots will do the trick. Basically it just gets your daily jobs done The camera could have been better... :/
But i would definitely buy this phone over huaweii htc etc. Samsung is a rival to this phone if you ask me a simple comparison is the S4 :)
worst phone i ever have.. the first time I bought it i thought that it would last more than a year of me using it.. after a few months I was so so disappointed, and the promise of Android M hasn`t been release yet, and Android N is already on Beta testing, the Phone over heats especially when playing games, LAGS a lot, Android L 5.0 version is the worst of all, battery doesn`t even last 2 days. the only good thing about it is it`s water proof. nothing else.
The phone UI lags, the music app has reproduction errors, the task manager lags a lot, the brightness sensor sucks, the camera app is slow, the camera takes a lot to focus, the video stabilization criples the video quality, the MM update was promised long ago and is not yet delivered, gaming experience is horrible, underclocked cpu.The only good things about this phone are the water redistance and the design. As it is now, AVOID this phone 4/10 (I have had it for 4 months).
I had bought this phn 6mnth ago.....i served prblm till today...2times for repair company took it for a mnth...no camera quality no battry backup n also heating prblm..that means i totaly lost my saving on this phn...i don't get much relief or replacemnt by sony.....thanx
