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.
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.
I have a problem with my Xperia M4 (E2303). Seem like the internal mic is malfunctioning or there is a intermittent issue inside, in a phone call no one can hear what I say, but I can hear them. I have to use headphones or put the phone in loud-speaker mode to work around the problem. If I tap with my finger on the mic area, sometimes the audio is good but it quickly goes back to not working again
when someone is calling me I do not hear the person but the person can hear me what is than the problem plz help

Anonymous, 05 Mar 2017Terrible phone. Cannot wait to upgrade. It disconnects from our 24/7 WiFi every few minutes.... moreAwesome phone. I bought it a year ago for 180 euros and so far it has proven itself as a great phone in the matter of price. Has fallen on the ground many times and survived. No lags, no technical issues, everything works fine. I have a good experience with it and would recommend it to everyone.
AnonD-646277, 20 Feb 2017great phone
until it updated to 6 and then decided to brick itself.
gps no longer works, pho... moreTerrible phone. Cannot wait to upgrade. It disconnects from our 24/7 WiFi every few minutes. When on a whatsapp call, it changes to aeroplane mode and cuts the call off. It has also, on occasion just dialled one of the numbers from my contact list. This while on the table next to me with nobody anywhere near the phone.

Ray, 08 Feb 2017Comparing with HTC Desire 826 dual, which one is the winner?Neither, buy an older used high end phone, which is always better than new mid range phones. iPhone 5s is good, Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Xperia Z3 and all this stuff.
I had the phone for over a year, with an over all great experience, although I have a couple comments on it:
It gets REALLY hot on the back close to the charging port.
Camera is really slow to pop-up when you select the camera app
Overall audio of the phone (When listening music, videos, or on a call, weather using speaker or not) is very low.
Back cover scratches really easy, unless you use a cover, but since the phone heats really easily and high, it is not recommended to use one.
Frontal camera is quite bad.
System still works good for me. Barely no crashes or whatsoever. Definitely a great brand but looking forward to a change in the near future.
Well, i had this for one year, never dropped it and, then one rainy day i fell on pocket where i had phone, from outside of it nothing happened, but inside it's mobo just died. So yeah rip cheap plastic potato.
until it updated to 6 and then decided to brick itself.
gps no longer works, phone and wifi signal drops all the time.
apparently a common problem.
no room for apps either but some you can at least move to sd card.
if you root the phone and enable adoptive storage it come a very good phone. Else not.
Wouldn't recommend it at all honestly; just a waste of money on my part. It's worth a mention that I don't really take a lot of care when it comes to tech; I keep dropping it and such. I've had this phone for about a year now.
+Nice build; pretty sturdy from what I've experienced. I drop my phone A LOT and it has only gotten 1 crack from over a year. It's worth a mention that I have a crappy bendable plastic case for it; saves the back from any scratches.
+Main cam is great. Captures the detain very well, even in dim light.
+Waterproofing is p well done for a low-end phone. Makes showers and walks in the rain a better experience.
-There are a ton of built in apps that you can't uninstall, you can only disable them. Takes up MOST of the built in storage. You have to constantly "clear cache" to free built in space. And you can only transfer a handful of apps to your SD card. Getting the 16GB version doesn't help.
-Front cam sucks under anything that isn't wonderful/natural lighting. Shutter on both cameras are slow as hell, hardly use it because of this.
-The back part, near the camera, gets hot really fast, especially if you're using a lot of apps, playing a game, or watching a movie. And not the "normal" kind of hot. I mean "it becomes too hot to touch" kinda hot.
-Gets really laggy over time
-When immersed in water, the touch sensitivity gets really messed up, also the audio jack takes a few tries to work after that. After a while though, it fixes itself.
-Take note of the low RAM; you think you might be okay with it, but you won't.
-Audio jack doesn't work sometimes; gotta take a lot of tries before it works properly again.
-Crashes/resets for no apparent reason; this also includes apps.
-Battery. Takes a while to charge; turning it off doesn't really help
TL;DR: Not a good phone. You can buy a high end phone from ASUS/OPPO/HUAWEI for the same price, even cheaper, and have an infinitely better experience. Waste of money. Only good thing about it is its waterproofing, and it doesn't even do it very well.
