If their are companies that don't innovate their designs are the ones that I mentioned before! You have Xperia S, Xperia P and U, that share the same design, than u have Xperia Sola, Ion, Acro S, Go, Tipo, Neo L and Miro...so tell me, is Sony not offering many design options? Even this SL is not his final image! And another one called Mint is coming. I think SONY is the best in product and design field... the internals question, maybe you want a quad core, ya?! For what?! Dual core is more then enough and nowadays you even don't scartch his full usage. Many people don't give Sony enough credit but in my opinion is has good as HTC or Samsung with better looks :D

Samsung doesn't hold a candle to Sony neither for the updates nor design. They are superior in the low-middle ranges. But Sony isn't even close to Samsung or HTC when we talk about flagships. Apart from having a very pretty face, the Xperia S is lame as a smartphone. It looks more like an upper mid ranger when performing. And the price point is ridiculous.
I like Sony design and hardware. My first phone and smartphone was a SE. But lately if you look to the top of the smartphones 'food chain', Xperias are a big flop in everything else but design.
aqua24, 13 Jul 2012so true. you need to lift weights first before you can press those buttons!! sony still have ... moreAre U crazy?! SONY has everything to do better then Samsung, costumers aren't very smart in my opinion! Samsung old models don't get ICS instead of SONY with their Xperia line and walkman, except Xperia Play. Their hardware price/quality is the best, specially in low and mid-range models. SONY has the best designs, not the old boring same designs like Samsung and HTC. Their Extras like headset pro and smartwatch are amazing. The downside must be their marketing strattegy, because they have everything to go forward and compete with samsung.
Sony is making best quality phones. Better than Samsung and Apple.

Perhaps the Snapdragon S4 processor in the SL will change things.
Hassan00107, 13 Jul 2012gsmarena correct the name Sony xpreria s not sony xperia x.I don't think you understand.
By saying family of Sony Xperia "X", X can be any letter or word Sony wants to name their phone.
Examples Sony Xperia U, Xperia P etc.
After 17 Nokia phones, I got my wife a Sony Xperia S. She loves it! I'm due a phone in January, and I'm hoping the SL will be an upgrade on the S!
I want to like Sony phones, but I can't. They all have the same look, but worst of all, the internals are mediocre. They seem to get the people who want anything with SONY written on it all excited, which is usually me, but nah, not with this lineup.
I think that that color blue that you've said was originally a Lavender one.

Ayman, 13 Jul 2012I can't differentiate between Sony phones, they all look alike!You are truly right ...
the worst phone button constraction ever made. outrageous. if only sony phones would match the product quality of their other departments...
