HTC Desire, Sensation (XE,XL), EVO, SE Xperia line, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix, RAZR, iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S (and many other phones) all FAILED because they lack Xenon flash hahaha. Seriously dude. Not everyone wants/needs Xenon flash on their phones.

It's not quite out yet, so battery performance couldn't have been tested in the real world.
Provided the screen size and the processor, I think this 1750mah battery will also perform somewhat similar to what other phone's battery is performing.

I agree with the comment about 12MP camera. Those who know little about Digital Photography, will know that these huge numbers don't matter

Looks pretty awesome. It should really come with a card slot, but otherwise great. Luckily there is a decent amount of storage.

Those gigs get eaten up pretty quickly. 12mp, 1080p, not to mention all your own music, movies, and music videos. They really should have a card reader I think, but at leat they are offering 16GB and 32Gb and nothig less.

Sony must be a little sore about losing the memory card format battle with SD so they are opting for cardless phones :)

> In reply to [deleted post]My DSLR have 18mpx APS-C sensor and 1080p video recording facility and uses 4GB CF card, but it enough for what I normally do. So, imho, 16GB is more than enough for a smartphone, unless you collect and install all application and games on the market, of course...

HD Screen not mean HD video recording. How many phone with HD Screen do you know?

FULL HD is: 1920 x 1080 not 1280 x 800 :|
