Well If u say so, I guess I must say bye bye psp emulator if I buy this phone but that's not a big problem, I still can install my boy app (an gba emulator) on e1 and it will definitely running smoothly.
Hey u know what, I play pokemon too Haha :-) but different version: leaf Green, fire red, emerald, and ruby.

I'm not interested with m or m2, coz since I have Sony Ericsson live with walkman I only like phone with great speaker, but I only like sony coz rich of entertainment feature not like S*msung.LOL.

I think you'll need more RAM at least 1GB RAM to play heavy game such as NFS MW, Dead Trigger, RRC 3, and Asphalt 8: Airborne and you need more advance GPU such as Adreno 305 or higher if you want lag-free experience (no matter if you play a game use emulator). Xperia E1 support up to 2 multitouch. Yeah PSP emulator need at least 4 multitouch. I used DRastic NDS emulator to play Pokemon HG and it need 4 multitouch to activate several Action Replay cheat codes. And Xperia M and Xperia M2 support up to 4 multitouch.

Xperia E1 vs. Nokia X
Android 4.3 vs. Android 4.1
Google apps vs. Nokia apps
1.2Ghz Cortex A7 vs. 1Ghz Cortex A5
Adreno 302 vs. Adreno 203
1750mAh battery vs. 1500mAh battery
12mm thick vs. 10mm thick
Pricier vs. Cheaper

There isn't much differences between these two. If you like louder speaker, then choose Xperia E1. If you like cheaper price tag, then choose Nokia X. If I were to choose between these two, I'd choose Xperia E1 simply because of the presence of Google apps. But if you are on a tight budget, then Nokia X is for you. Maybe you can install Google apps afterwards? XDA? The reason why I love Android is customization.

> In reply to Freakymous @ 2014-03-13 17:22 from 6}WL - click to readThe problem is I'm not in Europe I'm in Asia my country Indonesia.
And it suppose to be launch today.

Anyway bro, I forgot asking about gaming, actually I don't very like games in playstore, I like installing emulator and download the game for that emulator rather than games in playstore.

U know PPSSPP emulator in playstore right? I Once install that emulator to my device Sony Ericsson live with walkman and playing "Need For Speed" game but it's laggy?
Do u think all PPSSPP game will running smoothly in Xperia e1?
Also How many multi touch in e1? Coz I think need at least 4 multi touch for running emulator gamer (coz some game sometime asking to press multiple key at the same time to perform something)

FYI, my SE live with walkman spec:
Android OS: v2.3 upgradable to v4.0 (I'M now using gb 2.3.4 with moded firmware)
Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon
CPU: 1 GHz Scorpion
GPU: Adreno 205

So I think Xperia E1 with better processor (1.2 Ghz Cortex A7) could handle Real Racing 3 with no problem. :-)

Even with only 512mb RAM, Android 4.3 can run smooth and quick thanks to light and fast Xperia UI. And I think Sony will give this phone 4.4 KitKat update 3-5 month later.

If you're looking for WP skinned phone with no GMS (Google Mobile Services) go with Nokia X.
And with 512mb RAM it can run Android 4.1 smooth and quick too thanks to Fastlane UI but NO GOOGLE PLAY STORE.

Feel free to ask everything you want. But I think Xperia E1 already out in the rest of Europe, included my country Germany. What are you waitin' for? Take your buck and get this one!!!

If u looking for camera this phone definitely not recommended.
If u looking for perfomance then buy high end one (Xperia Z, Z ultra, etc.)

So, buy phone depending on what do u need.

Battery STAMINA Mode
saves you wasted battery drain. It
recognises when you’re not using your
display and automatically turns off the
functions you don’t need, while keeping
the notifications you want. As soon as
you press the power button to wake up
your screen, everything is up and
running again.

Yes I know dual sim is more expensive :-) I mean, in sony site, it said e1 with dual sim has front camera+flash and some people said the information in sony site is wrong also in this site (gsm arena) it said it's not have front+flash camera so which one is true???
Actually I don't like dual sim phone, but if the e1 dual sim has this feature, then why not?
Also does dual sim consumption more battery life?

Oh anyway, what is sony stamina feature? Hehe :-)

Sorry bro, for asking too much question :-)

This phone isn't bad at all, to get one thing out. However, I have a massive gripe with the fact that the screen is 4 inches. What the hell? Sony, understand that if people want to buy a 4 inch phone, they won't buy this phone with bare specs. I think a ~3.5 insanely cheap phone with the intent to sweep the masses like old school nokias did, a 4 inch phone that is quite good(exactly like what the xperia m was), EXACTLY 4.3 inch Z2...3...4 Compact(really important, seeing your trend you really want to enlarge compact devices), patch the way through, ~5 inch flagship and some tablets.

That is, if I was given the plan for smartphones.
