Out of all, Sony is one of the companies that keeps it as stock as possible.

Re: The 8GB model storage only has only 1.5 GB free

Oh and a little fun fact. This little information comes from the official M4 Aqua xperia care site:
When installing an app, you can choose to install it on either the internal storage or the memory card. If the internal storage is full while the memory card has a lot of available space, it is a good idea to install apps on the memory card.

What about that?
It seems this option, or something is amiss here.

Does Marshmallow fix this?

Marshmallow will be a little different. SD card will be for media only but you can also merge it to internal memory to be able to install apps, but in that case the card won't be available for media files.

Well You can store media files there too, just as in internal storage. When will the M4 Aqua get the Marshmallow update?

From what I have read, external memory will be for media and internal for apps. We will see.

There is no exact date for when the aqua will get the device.

Re: The 8GB model storage only has only 1.5 GB free

Got this phone, it looks nice but its storage is dissapointing. My question/issue is when i move photos videos to my external card and then I use Sony Pc app to move them to pc, the pc companion does not find any pictures or videos. Same issue with Picasa cannot find any pictures. So I have to manually move them to pc..
Why Sony PC Companion cannot locate and move photos to pc?
Also photos in sdcard are stored in DCIM/100Andro and if you use internal space its using DCIM/Camera is this normal?

 

PS. I also use Picasa to transfer photos videos with my older phone but Picasa cannot find any new photos/video or photos/video at all neither Nikon View NX2 neither Windows10 photo app....
