Hemnath, 29 Jul 2012Chipset MSM7225A Semi Conductor 45 nm CPU ARMv7 600-800 MHz ARM Cortex-A5 GPU ... moreOops sorry I missed that one. But how is it better than the hardware used in the 2011 Xperias running with 1GHz clock speed coupled with Adreno205? :(
??? The "Scorpion" title was introduced after Qualcomm announced the QSD8xxx range, which run on the newer ARMv7 instruction set.
Seems like there are only a few people understands what an ENTRY LEVEL phone means...
Samsung galaxy Y (entry level):
- quad-core Exynos 5612 chipset Mali MP420 gpu integrated
- 720p super amoled display
- RAM 1 gb, 32 gb storage
- android 2.3 gingerbread (promised to receive continuous value pack update - not confirm).

Sony should change there name to creativity. These Japanees guys are simply outstanding in designs without doubt. All samsung is good at is copy (a sickness called copyingittis). Long live play. Long live sony.
Wow,, this "ENTRY LEVEL PHONE" ??? i hope PRICE of this phone will be more CHEAPER,,, so may be many people will buy this phone , even if this phone have OLD chipset and gpu, but sure for price at 1ghz proceessor (old MSM7227A :P), andreo 200, 5Mpx camera, 4" wvga screen, and "ICS". this will be realy fine for "ENTRY LEVEL PHONE"
And the real question for SONY is : Will this phone can be replace domination Samsung for Android Entry level phone???? hemm nope :P
How can anyone complain about the used hardware without knowing the recommend retail price? Guys u disqualify yourselves...
At the right pricepoint this could become a hit...
Even sony entry level devices troll kept making it a big fuss. Lol... sony dont force you to buy but just offer more then one devices to choose if you like sony. If you dont like it just go purchase other entry level brands. Untill now most manufacture come out with late spec or same spec since 2000. Like sd slot. Just one upgrade doest not means its totally surpass the old hardware and doest not means the old hardware were not pratical to use untill now.
Anonymous, 29 Jul 2012I was asking myself the same question. This is an entry level phone with adreno 200 gpu??? wowcan u find an entry level with the same or better display, camera, processor and ICS??
