Zero shutter lag? Do you have any idea what that is? Of course you don't or you would know that even my Arc as zero shutter lag, same for XperiaS and XperiaT and I think all Xperia range.
Samsung by the other hand only got there at SGSIII and it as nothing to do with hardware and computing power but on how you design the camera itself.
May I remind you an S4 (and xperia S is S3, not S4 krait) can match a quad core chipset in almost any benchmark?
seems to me this is a great handset and if I didn't bought my Arc a bit more than a year ago I would go for this one.

It has the same screen, processor, amount of ram, gpu, etc than the Xperia S, it´s the same phone with a (not so much) better camera!! At least They should give it a quad core processor and better gpu

2. Screen size and tech (believe it or not, a lot of people like AMOLED better than the Bravia engine).
3. Latest OS version (and you are sure to get at least Key Lime Pie and [Lollipop???] when they come out).
4. Revamped GPU.
5. SOFTWARE and UI related FEATURES. This is the key selling point. The one. Direct call, pop up play, live thumbnails, zero shutter lag, smart stay anyone? Among many others. (And these features are possible thanks to the Exynos 4412 CPU and overclocked Mali 400 GPU horsepower).

1: I agree but very handy if the OS support that.
2: Amoled screen is a hype by sell-mans who get paid by Samsung. Second the Bravia engine has way more live colors and sharpness than overhyped (fake oled) Amoled screens from Samsung.
3: Sony does, you are going to ignore that? Sony has always get fluid on Android OS.
4: Said nothing a little bit better but you will not notice that in real live.
5 also the Dual core 1.5 Ghz has more support from the OS and aplications has also more open for the Dual core.

And i also think that Adreno 220 has little bit more horsepower than the Mali400MP.

So, the only what SGS3 has advance is the Quad core CPU power what also not yet support for OS.

And never you hear that Xperia S has all hardware out match SGS3 except the CPU, only Sammie lovers brag about it.

Second i also said that Quad core are not 100% out of OS.
Third,we all know that SGS3 has advance over the Xperia S if we talk about CPU nothing more than that.

I also thing that Mali400 is not powerful as the Adreno 220 GPU that remain we will see.

1. 4 cores (not the best feature).
2. Screen size and tech (believe it or not, a lot of people like AMOLED better than the Bravia engine).
3. Latest OS version (and you are sure to get at least Key Lime Pie and [Lollipop???] when they come out).

On a side note, Sony plays cheap with the CPU to pay the expensive design/materials.

It's only the matter if the OS support multi-core or not. Whatever it's dual-core, quad-core, 8-core, 16-core, 32-core, if the OS support multi-core then yes.

As far as I can remember, iOS and Android were supported multi-core since age ago.

The reason dual-core S4 does better than most quad-core today is another story entirely, not relate to OS. Even S4 will have quad-core soon.

Others specs just decent and lower then xperia s. But we knows how sammy fans re-act.. So if you like.s3 why you even bother to read this news ? Oh yeah right samsung had no others news to be told.

Why Sony stuck at 4.3"? At least, make bigger screen as a choice.

Sony really should think of a naming convention for their phone models. Not only will it aid consumers in differentiating between models, it might also help them in marketing their phones.

doesn't the Lt29 Hayabusa have a 4.6" display which is the only difference from it and the LT30 Mint ? so, what's so special about the Mint that made Sony give it a higher model number ?????
