> In reply to hahahah @ 2012-11-16 18:08 from 04%I - click to readThe LUMIA 920 is a truly amazing phone, the only downside is NO memory expansion. MY next phone is going to be the Lumia 820 as it is the 4G LTE W8 version of my Android SGS II

Be in no doubt that had the Lumia 920 had memory expansion it would have sold in buckets and my phone. There is NO reason for anyone with the Lumia 900 to upgrade to the Lumia 920 as without microsd it's an Iphone and a small upgrade.

The problem ALL manufacturers are facing is Samsung aka USAIN, I love my SGS II and this is the problem
Samsung (USAIN) brings out the best first and are already selling, EG the Prada III MOTO XT920, the SGS II was selling months before.

So another Android No, I think the next big thing is Windows
So again the Xperia T after the SGS III.
As regards to the Iphone

In the NXT series they learned the first part of the lesson, the Xperia S and Xperia U were very good phones for their respective classes, but had one serious flaw: No card slot. Every phone ever since had a card slot, except ofcourse the SL, which is just an overclocked S.

Im sure Sony i already aware of the latest demand among a fast growing number of users, namely the need for bigger batteries. However, even if Sony surely most know this, i am not so sure they will do something about it, and thus they create a showstopper again.

Im also worried about Sony trying to force us to use Whitemagic displays, and then maybe they will conclude that "Whitemagic saves so much power that we can get away with a smaller battery".

I hope for a Note 2 competitor from Sony, and then i dont mean s-pen or whatever fancy software the Note 2 has, what i love about my Note2 is the display size and battery juice.

Sony should aim to be the Trendsetter not the follower.

So, Sony is about to release a phone to compete with Galaxy SIII and iPhone 5 and they orgasming about that? In 2014 they could also release a phone to compete well with Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5S and be happy about that ... better later than nothing

Now, there are no reason to Bring Lumia 920 here. Nokia will announce their future Gen Lumias next year. And there are a lot demand for lumias at this moment. Yet Lumia 920 will be cold by the arrivall of xperia Odin and Yuga. But I think it's important to think about future. So, sony shouldn't make or even say something about a smartphone that rivals some old smartphones. They should say that GSIV and Next Iphone 5 will rival next xperia flagship. It's hard to survive the smartphone market without being cocky. Think for future. Make better smartphones. Make a smartphone with a better than all full HD display, a chipset better than S4 pro(tegra 4 wayne or novathor A9600). Use a better gpu than adreno 320(PowerVR SGX554). Use a better camera, use a flexible screen. You don't take the competition to them, Let them take the competition to you. Common sony. If you lag behind like past, you will never succeed.

> In reply to niki @ 2012-11-16 17:41 from gC7r - click to readthe look of the phone is something personal some people find iphone 5 look better than the xperia s others don't ,for me the xperia s design is better than iphone5....
but iphone 5 has a better screen with excellent color accuracy ,and great viewing angles,while xperia s screen suffers from very reflective surface and poor viewing angles ,and as u might know sony uses a cheap scratch resistant screen that must have protector cover fixed on the top of it..the funny thing that this protective cover is scratch magnet!!!!!!!!!!!

regarding the camera sony knows that some people think that the more the megapixel the better the camera ..which in reality is not true ,and that is why the images produced by the xperia s couldn't compete with the galaxy sII and the iphone 4s although xperia s has more megapixel............

if u have xperia s......just zooooom......if u know what i mean.

Why would they want to compete with s3? S3 is over 6 months old and about to be replaced in another 6 months. They should bring out a challenger to potential Iphone 6 and S4
