Damn!!! It's about time they use at least 32GB of internal storage as standard, heck it's 2013 not 2007!
geordie81, 16 Jul 2013why do camera phone makers do not realise that you surely have to increase the sensor size and... moreYup, too bad they went with a 1/2.3" sensor. That said, it is bigger than the Xperia Z's (and many other's) 1/3" sensor, as well as most competitors.
It will be exciting to see how the G lens performs.
Mobilemaster, 16 Jul 2013Good specs, but the internal storage should be 32 GB.the samsung s4 zoom is like a the abomination from the (incredible hulk movie) and the SONY XPERIA Honami
20 MP camera is the HULK stonger > better > and more good looking i work for SONY MOBILE and this is going to be epic like the AVENGERS!!!! BUY IT PEOPLE.....
stop producing 16 gb versions..we want 32gb/64gb/128gb
with external memorycard slot support upto 64gb,battery 4500mAh
I was waiting for either this or the Lumia 1020.
The sensor size in this one, 1/2.3 is just pathetic!
My old N8 has a bigger sensor than this!
Wtf Sony? Y u no put bigger sensor?
I hope this sensor size isn't true.
popye, 16 Jul 2013Sony has history of not being gracious enough in providing large internal storage in their phones.You're right, but maybe this time they will change their mind. :D
Bezel is way too big, the display covers under 65% of the front(do the math from the dimensions).
Sony Fansss, 16 Jul 2013Yes..AGREE...better come out with 32GB vision...16GB really not Enough for heavy duty user...I... moreAgree with you. Companies should now start selling phones with 32GB min upto 128GB as external. 16GB is insufficient if one plays an 1080p video or a Superior game.
bruce-wayne, 16 Jul 201316 gb?and people are complaining lumia 1020 has only 32gb even though it will be available in ... moreIt will be available in 64 GB, you are right, but that version will not be available everywhere, but only at a carrier in America. I can't understand Nokia. They choose a bad OS, they choose to not add a micro SD slot. :P
Guess ppl missed "expandable" which means it uses memory card. "non expandable" means no memory card.
Sony has history of not being gracious enough in providing large internal storage in their phones.
More people would buy this, instead of the Lumia..with android OS being the main reason
Ridiculously low built-in memory. Also they aren't in the world able to achieve good quality pictures from this size sensor (MPix/Sensor_size).
In the race of smart camera phone, nokia has been,leading all the way, inspiring other companies to follow its footstep....
whatever be it, nothing is better than the Carl Zeiss optics...sony should have,gone with CZ lens...it would have given a tough competition.
16 GB of expandable storage is too less but these aren't official specifications. Sony G Lenses aren't as good as Ziess Lenses and the senor size is just 1/2.3" which isn't that good, Sony should at least make it 1/1.2" and it must have pro-like camera settings otherwise people looking for a cameraphone despite the mobile OS, will either opt for Nokia 808 or Lumia 1020.
16 gb?and people are complaining lumia 1020 has only 32gb even though it will be available in 64gb...
The design is ugly! The specs are great! Come on SONY keep track of making stylish phones!
geordie81, 16 Jul 2013why do camera phone makers do not realise that you surely have to increase the sensor size and... moreYes and the software is very important too. If you schrew up that then no matter how good the camera is supposed to be, it will still take bad photos.
