4 months since i'm using this phone.. none of the above you said i faced so far.. and yes i use the same E2363 model by Sony.. overhating haven't happened, it getts a bit hot in some games which is normal due to the Snapdragon 615 gpu.. then you says this: ''Once brightness level also reduced to 50% from 100% automatically.''
that's the light sensor dude.. i didn't knew someone wouldn't know this ._.
even K850i from 2007 year has the same sensor.. place the phone under the stronger light it going to increase the light or brightness.. and opposite to weak light conditions
over heating problem, camera is not good in night mode, whenever i use call app it always mis behaves. battery back up is worst. and one main thing is it does not support OTG.
I'm using Sony Xperia M4 Aqua 2363 for more than 6 months.After usage of this phone for these many months my experience is as follows.Software bugs haunts this phone to a great extent.First of all,the phone definetely overheats after some simple tasks such as restrating phone,using Camera,viewing videos and photoes etc... Some other software bugs include: ringtone doesn't come up at random times.Needs restarting the phone to make the phone ring again.This is very annoying.
Default in-call volume is very low so i increased the volume but, it returned to default volume after a few days automatically.
Once brightness level also reduced to 50% from 100% automatically.
Call quality of some calls are definetely poor whereas some are really good.This might be a problem with my cellular service provider.
Software lags at some situations.Whenever i browse through some options in the settings,i felt some lags.
Thank God,I never experienced automatic restrating problem with this phone so far.
Camera quality is average and faces minor issues here and there.
Album app was crashing randomly but i disabled that app and installed a third party app called "Quickpic".Now no any problems.
Sometimes the phone fails to detect the SIM card after a restart but it can be rectified after restarting the phone again.
These are some of the bugs mainly software bugs that affects this phone and it definetely has a bad impact on myself.Sometimes i became so sad due to the problems with this phone.Since these are software bugs they can be easily rectified by another software update(Marshmallow update).But i have no means to update this phone as high speed and stable internet connection isn't available in our area.
I think this post might be useful for everyone who is looking forward to buy this phone.Thanks to reading this post.

M4, 09 Mar 2016Have you guys receive new android update for this device cause I just received the update Same here
I bought this on jan 19 for 16000.
As many of them has said it has heating issue but you can cool it with in fraction of seconds when you dip in water as it is water resistance.
so far batter has good capability 2 days if usual usage purpose even you listen songs.
Assurance for battery is good.
Ear phones provided by sony is not worth, now a days most of company's doesn't provide good earphones.
Good thing is light weight you can easily and it is handy.
Camera for this is not much better but good with HD pics.
I bought this for good camera,light weight and the most water proof capability.Over all its good.

my xperia m4 is 4mos old. recently, without touching anything, it says sd card has been removed. most of the apps have been transferred to the sd card since memory is always full. result? can't use the phone except for texts and calls; no internet (fb, etc.). if you restart or turn power off, it normalizes for a few minutes, then it goes back to the problem.
never seen a phone this expensive but very low quality.
this is the same case with my friend who just had his unit (a C4, 6mos old) repaired. same problem .
advice to potential buyers: check other brands. think 10x before getting an xperia.
Have this phone for a few months now and in general its great phone for that price. I mainly use phone for calls, messages and internet not heavy gaming or such things. Sometimes it heats up, yeah...And so? Its never been a problem. Only huge drawback is its internal memory, which is always full even if you store your data on SD card. It gets full already of android and Sony apps which you can`t uninstall, so you get that full memory message very often. But in the end my grade is still 8/10 if you use it as a phone not gaming machine or computer ;)
M4, 09 Mar 2016Have you guys receive new android update for this device cause I just received the update Ya me too gt update
Had this phone for two months now,and its working just fine,it has a good camera,nice screen and battery life is ok(battery life still depends on the user and on how many apps installed/working on the background,,,its sleek though the bezels are a bit annoying but its not a deal breaker for me,the os which is 5.0 is ok though 5.1 from my m2 aqua is more smoother,patiently waiting for the marshmallow update,the speaker is loud,u wont miss any notification,problem is its heating,it really gets hot while on gaming,and using data/wifi and doing multi tasking(data on while taking photos/online gaming(coc lol) so its still under users control regarding on its heating prob,,,,inspite of the pros i still like it it still meet my smartphone needs

Ur problem refers to u r turning on the third party flashlight and u r opening ur camera app. Its the problem. Or if it is not means go to settings >apps> cameras and clear data and restart
Bought the m4 aqua on the the 12Th of Feb and had nothing but software issues and cannot use speaker phone. This phone is a rip off. Wind would not honour they're warranty as I tried to replace the phone the second week I had it And Sony will not replace it either. Do not buy this as it will only turn out to be the most expensive paperweight you ever purchased. No wonder Sony has gone to a second rate electronic company. Maybe it's because they don't stand behind they're own product. I feel completely ripped off and spoke to a superviser basically told me they don't stand behind the product and will not replace it. Absolute garbage!!!!

Totally disappointed with this model n sony service center. Went down 3rd times for motherboard n battery failure yet sony serv centre claimed cannot xchange 1 for 1 under warranty. Ridiculous.
I am using SONY XPERIA E-2363 since last six months, but from last four days, the rear camera is not working. The message "ERROR, CAMERA NOT AVAILABLE" appears on the screen. Got a problem, how can it be solved and what are the probable causes of this malfunctioning?
Can anyone help to get rid of it, please?
