Is this last years phone coz it's still got the "Sony Ericsson" logo in the back :)
Exciting phone for me, an s4 krait processor from sony. It's gonna be a great phone
A little bit of fun there and I'm called a 'troll' - check out all my posts on here - you'll see I'm no troll...
But there's a serious point to all of this...
This year is all about quad core, just like last year was all about dual core... and in both years now Sony has failed to keep up with the competition... (last year single core, this year dual-core only)
Their flagship Xperia S this year? Removed micro-sd cards and came out with old software...
They need to catch up big-style to even be considered as a serious manufacturer. And I have an Xperia Play currently, just in case you were wondering on the phone I have...
It's time that sony makes better display panels than backlit LCDs atleast for their flagships.they certainly have the knowhow to do so.
Nice.. More troll in every sony news update.. That should be a good sign.. Cause if they already had a good device in their palm, what on earth they posting and reads this news. Anywhere nice design sony. Keep it up. My new replacememt unit will this lt29i.
Fongy, 31 Jul 2012Sony... bringing last year's phones to you... today.Lol.. Troll.. Whats on your mind assume what 2012 device should be? Quad core? The devices pack with s4 krait far superior then quad core.
Why oh why do they have to use LCDs that suck. It's Sony, they used to be great at display tech! Kind of ironic. Also, their "transitional phase" design team sucks big time. I thought that after the Xperia Arc it's only going to be better. Nope :-( Not a single stylish phone this year.
This Is SOOOO my next Xperia :)
But Guys did you notice the phone logo
it still say SonyEricsson >> is this mean they made this phone be for the separation..
that is really something
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2012Ericsson doesn't have a big business? Do you have any idea how stupid that comment is? Ericsso... moreI wrote success, read it carefully. Sony bought Ericsson(I mean the mobile department for 1 billion $). If Sony is a small company as you say, then how on Earth they could buy a big company?
Anyway I know about the CPU Ericsson CPU stuff.
Mobilemaster, 31 Jul 2012The big battle could be between Samsung and Sony one day. :) Anyway, it will be hard for Sony ... moreEricsson doesn't have a big business? Do you have any idea how stupid that comment is? Ericsson is one of the biggest telecommunication company and have many patents. Period. Sony is not accomplished a half of what Ericsson has done in this industry. Ericsson dropped out of SE because it was obvious not profitable, not because they are small.
I will give you one example.
There is very few companies that are capable of designing and shipping their ARM chips worldwide.
Qualcomm - Snapdragon
Nvidia - Tegra
Samsung - Exynos
ST-Ericsson - Nova
Apple - Ax(some)
Yes, you heard that? It's Ericsson and they still make the most of chips for Sony mobiles. Sony is simply incapable of making those chips and have almost no telecommunications patents.
At the end of the day, the company that has telecommunication patents and can make their own chips will win this competition and that's why Apple goes crazy about buying some companies. It's purely about patents.
Anyone who has a slight insight in this industry knows that Sony is small company, regarding to this matter.
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2012Bonus points for the removable battery and the sd card.
I'm not one to overly fuss about asth... moreAgreed. I like the looks of the S/P/U much more, but, whatever the looks, I'll get used to them on a phone I own. Features like the removable battery and Micro SD are always welcome no matter how long I them on a phone.
Apart from being a rather featureless (in terms of looks, not functionality) slab of plastic, I somewhat dislike the meager battery. I'd happily give up on the slim middle and have the phone in the same uniform thickness to accommodate a bigger battery.
Only if it comes out with quad-core Krait, Adreno 320 and more RAM, I would wait to buy this phone 100%. I knew that it won't happen whatever it's Sony or SE.
I'm quiet like aesthetics thing, that's why I will never buy SIII. But for Sony to release a dated-spec phones, I may have to go with Samsung.
Marco, 31 Jul 2012The screen had very disappointing viewing angle, and not the brightest. The photo samples look... moreCan you please give some argument why view angle si importent instead of blabbing around?
The screen had very disappointing viewing angle, and not the brightest. The photo samples looked very good though :)
@CyprusYid: If this international version will be launched perhaps in October, I doubt that Sony will push another as early as January. Perhaps there will be a new one in March/April or so. Though the great thing is that this will probably drop significantly in price between it's release in Oct/Nov to when January comes around.
