But will reduce performance.
All snapdragon 615, 810 phones heat.m4 can heat nearly to 70 celcius.but only when gaming highend games.
If you are a gamer seriously don't buy it.
And lack of internal storage is a huge problem.
Buy from premier mobile mt lavinia.Or singer.
Dialcom and celtronics and other companies @ ideabeam could sell faulty devices.
You should really really test the device well before buying m4.it is the most buggy and problematic phone by sony.
Some devices work well.
I didn't buy the device because of this. Still waiting to see if sony fix issues in android 5.1.1 which will hit in November.
And any way i follow the xda thread The Spanish firmware. 112 i think is the firmware which least heatup and good performance.
If you want otg buy sony c3 instead but rear cam not good as m4.
I am from SL too. I have tested the device intensively.
plz don't buy this phone i bought it 2 days ago bt main problem is heating when use net only 5 min then set is heat more no one phn heat as compare to m4 so plz dont buy plz

I just bought it couple weeks ago,anz this phone continously not reading the memory card. Heating problem
I bought an M4 not too long ago. It was fine for 3 weeks, but it suddenly went into restart loop (auto restart, but kept showing the Sony logo repeatedly). It happened a few times a day while using camera. I thought it was not a big deal, until it restarted, and hang, while I was on whatsapp, calls or youtube. So I decided it was unusable and sent it back to Sony Care Centre Singapore. A week later i went to collect it, and learnt that the technicians had merely done a software update. Within 5 minutes of turning it on, the phone went into restart loop again. I didn't even log in to google account yet. Sent it back to the store clerk, who seemed embarrassed. So the phone went back to the technicians, with the footnote "unable to power on if not with charger means charging, auto shutdown" (clerk's words).
I know some people have been saying their M4 is working fine so i'm hoping to get a replacement unit. However i will probably sell it off to buy another phone. Have yet to decide which one to buy.
Karthi, 16 Sep 2015Its a aweosme phone and heating is not a issue at all. Other than that battery file is awesome... moreThankz friend....
I'm really confused with the heating issue.......i think i'll go for it......
I deeply disappointed with this phone. I asure you don't want to buy this phone. I just bought it couple weeks ago,anz this phone continously not reading the memory card. Heating problem is serious especially on hot temperature or if i opening 2 apps. This phone has suddenly gone death like twice this week. I'm done with this phone. Just don't buy it or you'll regret it.
Thanks a lot buddy for your helpfull ideas.i'm not a heavy gamer so i'll go for it
lasith sl, 15 Sep 2015Yeah machan. i will also buy this beuty in next week.but looking forwrd ur answers for these q... moreIt will take atleast a month for m5 to come to SriLanka
And price will be about Rs. 55k or more.
lasith sl, 15 Sep 2015Yeah machan. i will also buy this beuty in next week.but looking forwrd ur answers for these q... moreSony m4 has 5 issues 1.heating
2. Phones has nearly 3GB at first boot. After updates only 1.3GB left
3.full hd video quality not excellent. But camera pictures are great.
4. Some games will lag after the new update. So please don't update if you play games.
5. No OTG
Well the phone has same performance as the Samsung A7 and A8 but cheaper.
I would recommend premier mobile rs.34900 with 2 year warranty.
Or buy from singer.
Don't buy this phone without warranty.
Some units can have problems.

Manju, 14 Sep 2015hi frds.. i'm looking frwd to buy M4 aqua bt many of them share their opinion about phne is mu... moreHai Manju,
I bought this phone 2 weeks ago and it works fine. Yeah there is a heating issue but its not a big deal so far. If you browse and charge the phone simultaneously the temperature will rise to a bit dangerous level but it will cool down immediately. Overall Processing camera and battery life is quite good. I daily disconnect it from charger at 5.00 a.m and I usually plug it back around 9.00 p.m when the available battery is some where 20%. I used FB, Whatsapp, Viber 24*7 runing with 3G on. Still didn't try 4G and hope to do it soon.
Hope this will help you.
