It is better to wait a year while all the bugs are fixed, and last years flagships are not this expensive!

I rather buy a laptop with that much money......oh wait, I already had one.....actually I hate this kind of phone, UHD huh? can human eyes even tell the difference between UHD and FHD? in a NORMAL distance I mean......well yeah we can connect the phone to a TV, a larger screen so that we can enjoy the full detail or whatever......what kind of person who will watch TV in a close distance, just to proof the "awesomeness" or whatever, you'll ruin your own eyes.....feature like this just for marketing, they think that consumer is stupid enough to take this kind of bait, without understanding what it is......even if the phone deserve this kind of price because of the spec in it, it still annoy me......what's next? phone with 1000ppi, octa-core, 8GB ram, with $1000 price, and keep thinking that consumer is stupid enough to buy it, just because of the stupid numbers...

Its priced just a shade above iPhone5 -true, but some of the specs are high end too..
iPhone 5 is 4 inch screen with 326 dpi, this one is 441 and 5 inch screen..
Also i dont see how iPhone5 is better than this is anyway so it is supposed to be costly, logically speaking!!
iphone's dual to sony's quad
iphone's 4 inch to sony's 5
iphone's 16 GB to sony's 16+32
iphone's cotton resistnace to sony water+ dust (iphone's body gets scratches all over)
iphone's 8 MP cam to sony's 13

I don't see what the problem of being at the same cost as apple is. The only small advantage is the iStore has 1 lakh more apps but android does have all the major names in the business. iPhone5 is a good phone no doubt but so is this one and its priced all right if you compare the two phones in specs and capabilities

bye bye Sony

you have no sense of the market, you dont have a clue what is going on. You will end up just like NOKIA and Apple might Aquire you.

Learn from GOOGLE on how to price your product. £529 how many are you going to sell at this price? think about it.

withing one monsth it will drop down to £350 so it is best to sell more from begining at £350 - £399 and piss of Blackberries, Iphones and Samsungs
