Walkman designs are lovely and so as the Cybershot lines. Do not laugh at anybody's suggestions because Sony might just make it happen. Sony's Walkman line were the best phones with the best sound quality that even Sammy tried to outdo with their music phone series but those were all crappy! Sony, please use IPS LCD display like what LG uses or Super LCD screens of the HTC phones because they are all better than Super Amoled of Samsung. Best of luck Sony! You're getting there!

Any how Sony Managed to Give a Good Phone After Xperia NEO V. But only drawback from Samsung is its Screen Resolution, Brightness, Small Fonts and Icons.

I have to say I was thinking about this phone but after seeing it in real life I'm not happy about it anymore. It feels like a rectangle, and the display really IS terrible.. eh.

Just look at the galaxy s series with same design and made of plastic each year. Open your eyes.

Wait till the next flag ship and you will see it will still be the same design model like this year Sony Z.

FYI: the walkman app itself is pre-installed in all the 2012 Xperia's onward, maybe in some older models too!

SIV has the same crap like SIII, and all the rest of the galaxy families!

design is almost alike, just couple crap of features that doesn't count as innovation.

It deserves success, Sony is finally starting to nail it. An overall winner for the average consumer. If I want to churn out photo realistic renders, simulate fluid dynamics, photoshop, or just play MW, I'd do that on my pc. Any issues it has apart from viewing angles, the rest could easily be sorted out by an update. It looks, good, feels good and performs good.
You want to be a real enthusiast? unlock your bootloader, overclock it, and it will beat your average joes galaxy s4. Quit hating on each others choices.
