This phone is totally useless. It has so little memory it can't even accept it's own update. Very little can be transferred to the memory card, even after you have paid out for that. Sony are not interested in the problem I have contacted them many times, but just get told (slightly more politely) 'tough luck'. I will never buy Sony again, not just because the phone is rubbish, but also because of their poor customer service. If anybody has a solution to the problem I would be interested to hear it, although for me that information might now be too late, as I have currently lost my phone. (Blessing in disguise?)

spoke to son who claim there sould be at least 3 gb left after android os. I upgraded to marshmallow to get the sd card incorporated in the total memory, however this isn't an option as on other models.

I've had this phone for not even a week and I hate it. They've locked the bootloader, made it impossible to root, can't use the adoptable storage feature of Android M and can't even transfer apps to the SD card meaning there can only be about 20 user apps installed at any time. To think this thing is worth over $300 outright here in Australia... I'm going to be selling this Xperia secondhand and use that money to buy a new LCD and digitizer for my Galaxy S5, at least it's rooted and I can use custom ROMs, not to mention install as many apps as I want/need. I really wish Sony had of thought this M4 and apparently most of their other models through...

I cant download any app even though i have 712 MB as free internal memory. This is really frustrating especially after i had to delete and move a lot of importan apps and information to my SD memory but still cannot download new apps.

I hope you can assist, this is not good for the sony brand

This device is perfect, but... only the 1.26 GB out of 8GB is usable... Can Sony company make this device with at least 4 GB usable memory?

hmm... so they can do what others not. If i have a candy factory and i write to the package 1000g. But this package have only 200g. Can i say: it was 1000g just my workers did eat 800g ? No. they will hitting my butt till get red. So why they can do and why have no law for this Fake information like 8gb. because this actually only 1.2gb. Will not surprise me when some Chinese company will make phone with 1TB built in memory. but you can use only 64gb from that. terrible lawless world to "elite".
