Hahaha I wonder what sony is doing with its price strategy. You've got to be kidding me! $850 oh no thank you sony, water proof? I am not buying for my fish, I'm buying for myself. So, if you think water proof is the key to success, you are wrong. Not too many people drop their phone in water.

Haha, one can buy the galaxy note 2 for this price. Two nexus 4's and the nexus has a quad core krait. I like it, but its too pricey

$815 for that mid-range specs?
they must be out of their mind.
only die hard fanboy would buy those things.
people with right mind would choose other phones.
there are many cheaper solutions with same specs and better build quality out there.

If this phone were to come up 6 months ago like when hTC One X and Galaxy S3 were launched, I would definitely pick one up without breaking a sweat!

anyways, good luck with overpricing your midrange products of very suspicious quality sony, i hope you announce more public losses of your company.
not one model of the growing xperia line didn't convince me to buy them, midrange at best but price shoulder to shoulder with s3

I can't stand Sony phones they are horrible and this one is just ugly, I had a Sony Xperia S hated the thing, I have always been a Sony Ericsson user but since changing to Sony I have seen a horrible tacky change.

This is expensive because its russian price. For comparison nexus 7 here is being sold for 350 usd instead of 200. So in USA or Europe this phone eill be cheaper at least 100-200 usd

Xperia TX cost exactly the same price. This is just real, non-subsidized price.
