My phone is 3 years old. The charging jack is damaged and won't connect to any computer, it only charges, which also means i can't use Xperia companion (yes, I've tried different cables and computers and drivers), the microphone stopped working so i have to either use the loudspeaker or earphones, it randomly reboots and overheats although i don't think that's a big issue compared to the other things.
Like it quite a lot, the battery life could be better. Only worked out the second sim slot did NOT work after warrenty was over. Otherwise it is a great phone.
This is the worst phone I had ever purchased. Battery failure, heating problem, just LTE no VOLTE. When you go to the service center they asked you to change its parts and demands huge sum of money. Worst experience with Sony ever and not recommend anyone to go for Sony products.

Steward, 18 Apr 2018Bought this model 2 years ago, 8GB internal is horrible as apps will automatically upgrade and... moreI've never used a Sony smartphone but If automatic updates eats your phone's space, just turn off automatic updates in 'Google Play'.
Anonymous, 25 Apr 2018I bought, actually I was gifted this phone in September 2015. After using two and half (2 1/2)... moreI bought this in July 2015. Almost 3 years now and the phone is dying on me. Abnormal shutdowns when the battery hits 25-30%. Extreme heating while browsing the internet. I have stopped playing couple of weeks ago, the only game I had installed on my phone for the past 1 year - FIFA Mobile. Battery life - the less said the better. The battery won't charge properly since last couple of weeks.
The phone is not bad at all. It ran beautifully for the initial 1 & half year but then it was all downhill from there. Went to do underwater photography once in 2016. My friends made full use of the water proofing of this phone that day. Have been a Sony fan, but I couldn't convince myself to upgrade to another Sony phone.
I was waiting for a good midrange device as I didn't want to splash 30k+ INR on a device which I will be using moderately (The average usage for Social Media - FB, IG, WA; few calls, couple of YT videos, few songs, and an hour of gaming). The Nokia 7+ came around. Felt it was a bit overpriced. Luckily I got a 15% discount coupon from Nokia + 5% cashback effectively making it 21k INR for the 7+. And for that price I think it is a steal. Waiting for the 7+ to be delivered today!

After using two and half (2 1/2) years, the same, above mentioned happened with my phone. It's swollen and the heat is very high, where all of a sudden, it started updating all the applications last night. Is there any remedy to fix this problem? Or Changing the phone is the only option?
Bought this model 2 years ago, 8GB internal is horrible as apps will automatically upgrade and eat up lot of space. The battery swollen a little bit and it's like applying salt on wounds, and finally this device easily built up heat like a heater.
I updated 2 app two days ago, Clean master & 360 security. after that, the network of one of SIM (with GSM network) disable. I changed LTE & GSM between two SIMs. again, the SIM with GSM network disable. I think one of those app, change setting of network to disable all GSM networks. How can I solve this problem?
DO NOT BUY
I have 2 of these E2333
At 1 year, the same week the following happened to the phones:
Phone 1. The Ram module died making the phone unusable. Blue Screen of death.
Phone 2. The CPU and Motherboard have dislodged from heat and the phone can only be started by holding tight just near the nfc logo at back.
Please save yourself the trouble and do not buy Sony at all.
mali, 06 Mar 2018why my m4 aqua dual dont have 4G?because maybe your provider don't support or have 4G yet ? mine is running perfectly on 4G or LTE
For all Reporters, dont forget, sony phones will heat alot so don't use it hard core... because heating damage the circuit, so keep it as phone, not psp or pc...
3 phones i brought for my friends all of them complaint and it used only for one and half years. the repairing charge they ask for each is 10000 .
