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.

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.
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

Please help. My phone keeps disconnecting from my WiFi. is there a seeing to prevent this? It also doesn't access my data at all even though I have plenty available.
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.
