I have had one as part of a contract upgrade for around four months. My main issue is the charge connection which is intermittent and has no almost packed up. A previous Sony model had the same problem. The phone is due to be sent back for repair, which is extremely inconvenient. It also gets very hot and hasn't much storage, otherwise it is okay. I would recommend purchasing one outright.
Sony is best mobile smooth running of my mobile phone and money is worth Sony is re value mobile phone other mobile phone no re value Sony is best choice sorry bad English
This is the worst phone I have had yet and I have only had it for a couple of weeks and I extremely regret it. I had read many reviews saying that for a mid range phone it was really good and I can completely disagree with all of those reviews. The first thing they don't tell you about is the actual amount of space on the phone. Every website I looked at before making the purchase claimed the internal storage is 8GB. Wrong in actual fact after the phone has been set up you only have about 1.5GB of space left. I inserted a 64GB SD Card but this barley helped me as very few of the apps can be moved over to the SD. You can stop updates of apps already installed but it won't help you much as you can't fully delete very many of the initial apps.
Another problem I am noticing is that even if you sit for 5 minutes going through your emails the phone gets extremely hot that you don't want to be holding it, especially if you are on the phone and having it up to your ear for any length of time.
Furthermore charge wears down very quickly my last phone would last hours of playing music with very little battery loss and the M4 Aqua will last maybe 5 hours but the battery will be pretty drained. It also takes a long time to charge the phone I estimate about 6-8 hours charging to get back to full battery. This is not good if you need to be contactable for the majority of the day.
I have to keep constantly clearing RAM and cache to try and keep a little bit of space on the phone.
Also the camera although it claims to be 13MP it is very poor the camera is exceptionally slow at both taking photos and also turning on. Even the slightest movement will give you a blurry photo.
If you are looking for a new phone please stay away from the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua it has been very misleading as a good mid range phone.

This is a very sensible phone for the price with contract but doesn't have a removable battery like some of the LG phones. With all the crazy stuff & people in the world you almost need a phone with camera and or audio at all times. A phone with a removable battery means a ton if your life is more than just about talking and texting.
worst phone , just under a year I had numerous bootloops and had to flash the rom a lot of times . don't recommend this phone , its a freaking lemon !

AnonD-547639, 11 Jun 2016Same problem, but my problem happened out of nowhere.If the phone was not use for a long period &or did not know the battery was flat.
Try to put the charger and charge the phone. It required a few minutes then you can see the charging signal icon counting %.
If you think it is not the battery, or you have done the above, do a hard switch off, by press + hold the On/Off button until it totally shutdown. This is force shutdown as the phone may be hang.
After you can see the screen, do check all the phone setting for anything out of ordinary.
Such as date/time & region not set. This will affect the phone performance.
Ok, so, im having this smartphone from six months and i am very pleased from functions this phone have. The strong side of Sony is the speaker. Realistic and full sound. Fast and smooth slides from the touchscreen. Very elegantly designed. Now the negative part. I have noticed that my gps signal is weak as nothing. Probably its very short antenna, that is incorporated into the smartphone. But i wait a planty of time, while the signal comes to my phone. When attached to the satelite the motion on google maps card is not smooth and has relative skipping. Thank you fotlr tour time.
Don't know why is there a lot of hate for the camera? Pictures are not blurry at all. It's really not bothersome, you just have to learn how to use it's camera and the focus time is not that bad. Only thing I should've done is buy 16GB model. There is no huge amount of free memory on the phone itself, so I have to install all apps and stuff on SD card.
Overall, it is very nicely built. This is my second Sony phone and I have no complaints what-so-ever.

Superb sleek phone but lots of problems. Missed calls which you didn't hear. Switches off by itself and finally boooom!!!!!!!! Dark screen. Just dead .
Can't do anything because the screen has just gone blank. Total waste of money because I'm still paying a contract for this phone.
M4 it's a smartphone. Not a tablet, not an laptop or pc. I don't know what do you guys expect. For the low price it's doing all the things that you need. Internet music photos calls und sms.... I see only complains about this phone. U guys buy an iPhone or Samsung. Same problems at extreme Preises.
Less than impressed - I've had this phone for six weeks and after coming to terms with the memory situation (8 gig but uses over half for the operating system?) and repeatedly receiving texts to say I've missed a call when it doesn't ring, I have a new problem. The ear speaker works intermittently so when I make or take a call, I have to use the loudspeaker.
After a visit to the EE shop where I bought it, I did a factory reset but it hasn't made any difference and as I've had it over a month, they won't exchange it. Obviously, now I am taking this matter further!
Can't help but feel cheated when a phone struggles to perform it's primary function!
This phone was good, I will rate it 7/10, the battery for me was superb. My battery last for 4days only for text and a few calls and it last a day using wifi, data and gaming occasionally. The only problem for me or the downside of the phone is its internal memory 8gb variant sucks, you will get only 2.4gb free space. So if you planning buying this phone i strongly recommended get the 16gb variant, the front camera was horrible specially in low light or dim area, i really like the rear cam its good and decent. This phone was not made for a heavy gamer, after 10 - 15mins playing heavy games it heat alot. In the end for me in my opinion battery front cam the performance was good, the downside of this phone dont get the 8gb variant, get the 16gb variant, the front cam was horrible in dim low light and it heat a lot on heavy games.
