The cut off date for GMS certification of Android 4.2 is 24-Apr-2014, but I get if they certified it already then they could slip 4.2 into this phone. I don't know why they would do that, terrible idea, it's not bad it's not acceptable.

Don't know why everyone's moaning about 4.2.2, I'm using 4.4.2 on a nexus and it still looks and runs the same as 4.0.4 ICS. Only exception is Google now and thats hardly a game changer.

Red, gold,green, etc are common now a days like black and white before. Maybe there is a manufacturer could make the color to be 2 tone or 3 tone just like in coloring in cars. I hope sony could do this first.

Interesting but at least 1.5Gb of RAM and KitKat out of the box. They lose the chance to sell well this and the 816 here in Brazil.

Only 1GB RAM? No point in having the MTK octa then. . .

Even the good old 6589 quad has enough power to justify 2GB RAM.
