Come on guys.. Don't blame nokia for everything.. When android was in its development Nokia already launched smartphones through SYMBIAN (5230, 5233, X6, N8).. Don't forget it.. If it isn't for Nokia we wouldn't have learned about smart phones..

Every1 is fancy wit those names oni...
A lot of ppl never compare it seriously~
Retina display?
It's juz wording~
Ppl juz fancy wit those bombastic words...
If Apple n Samsung really hav their tech upgraded/improved~
Y cant they came out LED phone screen wit Full HD 1st?
SONY can even use old tech (TFT) n make it clearer n more reality than other brands~
SONY tech is greater than others...

Hey haters~
Dun keep saying SONY hav bad screen...
Pls look at SONY Xperia Acro S~
It has a HDMI output...
Wat does dat mean?
The phone has enuf resolution n hardware to output HD images / videos...
Why other brands dun hav it?
Coz they dun hav dat kind of tech n resolution...
So haters juz keep quiet n play wit ur plastic phone~
N watch how SONY gonna win as it always...=]

Belle,symbian, wp7.8 all flops. So you guys dont have any rights to argue that the new os will be a flop. Wp8 will soon flop coz nokia is so narrow minded, they dont want to switch to other os.

My life is boring?
Whose the one saying "need long usage time"?!
Hang out wit frenz then stick 2 ur phone screen till nite?
Ur life is worse than boring then...==
Stupid statement~
"The worse to hold overtime is undoubtedly the xperia z. And galaxy s3 maybe ugly but most phones now get a cover"...
Lik u said all the phones getting a cover~
Then most of the time u r holding the phone wit the cover...
The cover quality is the one 2 b questioned~
Hav u ever tried Xperia Z wit a cover then compare it wit GS3?
Or u juz saying it by ur imagination?
Obviously u cant try it~
Coz u cant put a cover on a sample phone...
If GS3 nid to get a cover 2 look nice~
Obviously Xperia Z wins...=]

If only the Xperia Z could dual boot either Andy of FFOS... Here's hoping for the future.
