I got this phone for more then a year an a half, no problem so far. I dont consider myself an heavy user, but i play games on it for about 4 hours a day. Nothing from previous comment happened to me. I will be eligible for an upgrade in october but i was thinking about keeping this phone till it stop working and continue on a lower price plan to use this phone that is serving me well

hi Guys.. just wanting to ask if upgrading the M4 to Marshmallow is better than Lolipop? I've been using this phone for more than 7 months now. So far it served me fine (actually not truly well) if you ask me cuz I got the 16gb variant.,.. Thanks in advance :D
Have been considering to buy this phone for a while now but after going through the opinions here I`d rather sacrifice and go for a Z2 or 3
Do not buy this phone. After a year of using it, my xperia protection enable it self after draining my battery. Xperia Anti Theft Protection has a bug which you cannot activated it even entering your correct account and That was my case so I brought it into the nearest service center to unlock it. They fixed it and successfully unlocked my phone. Worst case is that it is only just the beginning. After unlocking my phone, it started to misbehave. System starting to stop responding, SIM will randomly stop working etc so I brought it again to service center. Once again, they fixed it, they've managed to have my sim signal back, etc..
After a month of using it. It happened again, same thing system not responding, sim is undetectable, no imei, worst is my xperia keyboard is not working too.. So I brought it for the 3rd TIME. ONCE AGAIN THEY MANAGED TO FIXED THE PROBLEM. After using it again for 3 months same thing happened! problem become worst. The main OS is not responding, I've got blue screen, loading screen takes 30 minutes then crashed. I will not bring this phone anymore to service center. Im gonna buy another brand and wont use sony product anymore. This is a warning guys.

Had experia for 5 years, updated to xperia 3m,, hate, hate, hate going to Samsung
Phone is not bad, i'm using it for a year now.
Wifi connection is poor so im using data (to avoid the hustle of turning everything on and off).
Storage is always full (I have sd card and everything moved to it but to update one of moved apps:
1) uninstall updates 2) update the app 3) move updates app to sd card 4) install updates again. )
Call quality isn't the best. (people often don't hear me well).
everything else is good.
Phone rarely lags, gps is good, phone fell down quite a few times but screen didn't cracked.

I wish to change a new phone after three days use. The 8GB storage is a biggest problem, less than 2 GB can be used actually.
I have this phone since January 2016. I didn't have this many issues with any other phone in 17 years (in June 2000 I bought my first mobile phone).
I sent my M4 it to be repaired 4 times in the last 14 months. I'm not dropping it, I didn't put it in water, even to test it if it's really waterproof.
The secondary microphone get's broken, you can't use the microphone while on speaker (for example when skyping with video people can't hear you), I've had that replaced 3 times.
The earphone plug is not working anymore, I'm not a heavy headphone user but I would like to listen to some music occasionally.
The GPS reception is just horrible, keeps loosing connection even when it's set to High Accuracy mode.
8GB storage is almost insufficient because you get only 4GB of free storage, the other 4 is for system. I bought the phone believing SONY can't be a bad choice, but guess I was wrong.
apexx, 29 Mar 2017Is this phone supports otg?No, it does not support OTG.
my sony xperia m4 shows 883 mb ram after upgrading to marshmallow.phone goes very slow.i contact xperia service store,xperia customer care number and also xperia support forum.but didn't got any proper solution. now... wowww..they solved the solution.. change the motherboard. now i have to pay approx 7500 indian rupees. they even don't give a reason.
before buying this phone, once visit the sony xperia forum and search ' m4 aqua ram problem, already many people faces same ram issue.
