keep buying the crappy android... not realize that manufacturers play with customers by launching a new model every three months and devalue a lot previous models which cost so much to buy?? this is not to stop! So I´ll NEVER leave the quality and exclusivity of Apple and iPhone.. The best technology company ever.
not a fan of big screen. for me a 4.0 to 4.3 inch screen with tiny bezels, good camera and removable battery is my ideal super compact phone =)
Ba Xun, 01 Mar 2013Smaller please! like 4.6 maybe. All these huge phones are annoying me. I like sonys Z waterpro... moreI have a 5.5 inch "Galaxy Note 2". Trust me - one gets use to it. I tested a friends 4.8 inch Galaxy S3, and I was surprised how "tiny" the display felt.
the 4.8 screen will get smaller due to lack of physical buttons because it will have on screen buttons just like the nexus series and it's sibings!
i wish this be the next NEXUS phone.
but it is said that it will come with android 4.2.2
so it becomes less likely :(
i was about to purchase xperia z, but now that i read a smaller version is coming... DAMN! buy,wait`??
this is a S4 killer for sure.
just an IPS screen and juicy battery, then S4 is done.
Ba Xun, 01 Mar 2013Smaller please! like 4.6 maybe. All these huge phones are annoying me. I like sonys Z waterpro... moreDont be bothered by the screen, Xperia z and zl are still the smallest with 5" screen phones up to date. Even smaller than most 4.7" phone.
all new phones coming from top android manufacturers like HTC,samsung,sony,LG have snapdragon 1.5-1.8ghz quadcore,13mp camera,2gb ram,4.7-5 inch 1080p screen,jelly bean onboard
So the dealbreaker for people buying these phone would be:
onboard software doesn't matter since there is always a possibility of other phone UI(even non-android based UI) to be fully ported over to your phone.
Smaller please! like 4.6 maybe. All these huge phones are annoying me. I like sonys Z waterproof phone but 5 inches is so big.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 20134.8 is too small. No reason to wait for this mini phone. Give us 5.2 or 5.3 inch. 4.8 inch is large enough, why do say it is small. You people like it when it is large as a slipper.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 20134.8 is too small. No reason to wait for this mini phone. Give us 5.2 or 5.3 inch. So buy a Phablet not a phone
I hope it packs a beautiful screen maybe with Bravia Engine 3 maybe?:D. The best loudspeaker and camera because in the Sony Xperia Z they arent so impressive. Also I hope it will be omnibalance and 6.9-7.9mm thin and built with the same material of Z and water and dust resistant. Also to pack a bigger battery and stamina mode too. I know all this is a lot but Sony please make this last effort to be the smartphone leader!!!! pleaseeee
Vladik, 01 Mar 2013If you think 4.8 is small and you want it bigger, I guess you're compensating something.So if you say 4.8 is not small then its not small? Who are you to decide other peoples display size? Its too small, i have Note 2 and would like to stay at around this size if Sony had an option. Not all of us are little weasels like you who are afraid of the new trend with 5 inch phones.
Sony haven't announced anything as this is a leak from a tipster! It probably won't be released till about September anyway which is 7 months away!
will this phone have user repleable battery? Most of the phones that have recently come out do not have this option. Only LG Optimus G Pro and samsung have offered this option. I had battery go bad on Galaxy SII and LGO4X. So i choose phones with this option.
If all these rumors were true...then bring it on Sony.
Its high time to be aggressive. 4.5-4.8 screensize is a sweet spot. I don't mind redundancy, as long as you give us a lot of great choices.
psysect, 01 Mar 2013its not good at all..every mounth a new phone??why sony?? in order this better that sony zoom... moreIt's still a rumor and maybe the h2 flagship from sony which may come in october like the.xperia t
