ThomasCarlsson, 04 Jan 2013Boring desing, just a black rectangle! The camera lens i still too close to the edge! Plastic,... moreWhere do you want the camera placed?? In a slim phone the camera has to be in a place where there is no display on the oposite side, or else it will protrude too much from the back, and it may give associations to breastfeeding like the HOX.
Of course they could fix this by:
1. Making the phone fat like Lumia 920, or
2. Use a small cam module with insufficient lens and possible no autofocus.
3. Have very big top bezel.
Which one is it you want? 99% of us want none of the 3, we rather have the cam close to the edge.
Libyan.Guy, 04 Jan 2013I dont know why most of brands sony , samsung , htc etc are just jackal behind bigger screens ... moreSony will already reviled 2 other devices
one is 4.6
and the other is 4.3
and in barcelona there will be one 4.0 this is all plus the 3.5 Xperia E
so you will have from Sony
and may be also 6.0
and those screens will be basic have a generation every 6 months
TMach, 04 Jan 2013Not really a Samsung fan especially after S3's poor build quality and customer service, I am g... morewell said... :)
the problem that the galaxy S2 better in design, also stronger than the SIII... and who knows, what's the up coming beast by Samsung, but thanks not for me cuz i always go with SONY!!! ;)
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2013So your basing your views on the build on not the bloated mess of a software that is Sony's UI... moreSo you are a HTC user and then blames Sony for beain bloated? I ben happy with all my Xperias Sony Ericsson and Sony, and im happy with Samsung NOte 2 now, but HTC android was a totally different story, worst phone ever, even Samsung Corby and LG Cookie owned it in reliability, easily, thats well done considering that Corbys barely worked at all. I was gonna stop using Android because i thought Android was so unstable and slow on good hardware, lucky i discovered that Sony Ericsson and SOny had Anroid versions that actually work and are snappy and reliable.
And how did we know you use custom ROMs? Because thats the only way to make a HTC work, so save the sermon for your own brand, please?
A haaaa...m happy 4 u sony...this willl definitely get back ur magic again. ...
where da fck is da flash??!!!!! O.o
Sony Cams are good. and such a gr8 device w/o a flash???!!!! Wat is Sony thinking??
no matter how good this device is, you have to know that it is still made by sony, means it sucks.
this is really a good all around device, and i can say, a"a smart phone should be" the premium look nature resistant, good hardware quality, excellent looking device, what can i say?? im really looking forward to buy this, and my old S2 as a back up phone, cheers Sony!! (^^,
What about the flash not available or still researching for where it should be placed...really disappointing all high end spec without a basic need...
sony is always no. 1 in design. sue apple dis one. hahahah. because of its design. hahaha. i think sony this time punch first.lol
golemred, 04 Jan 2013what ? where is camera flash ?I dont think there is a camera flash... and no need it, coz the camera has Exmor RS lolx... which can capture low light pic and video
sony pls think abt seniour custmor of age more then 40.
they need a simple java ph with gud keypad and big dialing font on display.
you can relaunch ur old ph like w995,k790 etc
with usb charger and 3.5mm headph jack.
popye, 05 Jan 2013I only buy devices that suit my taste that's why I only go for Nokia and Sony because they are... morewow...you're really tripping man...i see you dont own or understand anything about phones...sony hasnt showed ANY good phone till today...not because bad marketing or whatever...xperia line sucks...its a laggy phone...and the design, what about it?? only xperia arc was a very beautiful phone but the rest...again...design?? htc and samsung way ahead...first, let the new phone from sony come to the market, and then, if it really is that good, then you can start saying things that make sense..
code cracker, 05 Jan 2013******samsung was able to sell devices bcoz it took on apple in marketing tht created a lot of... moresony above samsung in quality and innovation?? what planet do you live...tell me 1 phone that sony made that support your statement...its been a long time since sony hasnt made any good phone...go to youtube and watch...after that, compare to samsung galaxy line...the only phone i liked from sony, was the ARC, the rest of them, NO INNOVATION, or if im wrong, tell me the innovations from sony
golemred, 04 Jan 2013what ? where is camera flash ?it's most likely hidden because of the mirror effect of the back glass.
according to rumors they might release this a week after they announce it so about jan. 14
