Webby, 15 Jun 2016This is the worst phone I have had yet and I have only had it for a couple of weeks and I extr... moreYou can go to Apps in settings and disable the ones you don't use. It could save some space. Personally I don't use Google services, so I disabled all Google apps. I have some apps, and 1 GB-internal left for now.
My device doesn't have heat problem. Perhaps it's rare, and Sony will repair it for you.
It takes about 2-2.5 hours to fully charge from 15%. I use the stock charger. It seems you can charge the device with some other manufacturers' chargers, or via a USB cable connected to your laptop. I don't know much about hardware, but I think using the stock charger is fastest and safest.
You don't have to manually clean up RAM. You don't need third party apps to clean up RAM either. The operating system will do that for you (I'm an Android programmer, I think that's correct). And from my views, you don't need any anti-virus apps. You shouldn't root your device, so third party apps cannot harm your data. (This might not be perfect, because there would be any security bugs.)
My country doesn't have policies about carriers locking contracts. We buy phones at full prices. Sony doesn't put any weird/crap apps into their devices. I don't know in case of carriers with contracts, such as in the U.S.
It's a good mid range phone for me. My last one was Xperia M2. I don't have much money, so this is my second phone from Sony. I have to say, Sony is doing a great job. I'm quite sure my next one would be another Sony Xperia. I think their products are worth my hard-earn money.
Have a nice day :-)
Still don't have an update. I checked my software online and it say up-to-date but the android version is still 5.0??
I've had loads different phones over the years. Nokia. LG. Motorola. Samsung etc. This is by far the worst. I'll just have to cut my losses & exchange it.
It was my first smartphone and i only can say that it is an epic shit if i compare it with desktop its like using a pentium 4. What i hate most is it speed of process. It is really annoying.
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.
