Is that why over the S3 has outsold every Sony phone combined, the Xperia S/T/V's total sales figures will combined can't match the S3 figures alone nor the support. How shallow are you? And for your info, I'm no Samsung fanboy, I'm more towards HTC's camp

From the p900 to the Arc, i've used every brand conceivable which you can only dream of. that's the beauty of being able to have 10 different contracts, one doesn't have to worry about what to get because I just end up getting more than 10 different phones over 6 months. Yes, i've used Sony before and where did i say I was a samsung fanboy?

You only have to look at the earnings in the mobile division to see that both are failing horribly in comparison to Apple/Samsung and even up and coming stars like ZTE. Your only interested in has been brands, after 2014 they will probably most likely be either good as dead and concentrate on being a 3rd party software developer in the mobile realm as opposed to being continually being raped by the superior OEMs that are giving customers what they want and not a clusterf*"*k of releases like Sony is doing and with Nokia's non descript monotonous out of date approach.

Exmor-schmexmor. Till today, even old Nokia N8 shots ten times better photos than best Xperia.
The truth is, most phones cameras are just sold by strong PR and nothing more.
golemred, 04 Jan 2013what ? where is camera flash ?Underneath the camera!
Not really a Samsung fan especially after S3's poor build quality and customer service, I am gone for good! This looks like the PHONE for 2013, what more can one possibly want except for Sony to release this early March at the latest! Great job Sony!!
please release this first week of february so I can have this as a birthday gift from the love of my life... ok? :)
I'm a Nokia fanatic for all my life and currently an owner of the flawless Nokia Lumia 920. And I'm planning on trying Android as well and this is the phone I'm considering buying. Samsung sucks.

It's very good from Sony at making this waterproof. Now they should make some great commercials, as Samsung does with every of it's high-end device. They also need to sell it in a lower price. If they do this they will have a great success. Also the updates are important too.
Ive been a galaxy fan since the S1 but since the quality of the S3 I have lost interest in the galaxy range,
sony designs are absolutely beautiful and there hardware is finally catching up, so when the S4 comes out will be my next upgrade and if its not up to scratch then sony is the future for me :)
beautiful.. if it proves itself, i might get this instead of nexus 4..
I dont know why most of brands sony , samsung , htc etc are just jackal behind bigger screens !
I knew that Z has got a quad core and other futures .. But the big size is not really comfortable !
And why just jumping from 4.2" to 5 through just 2 other screen sizes
4.3 and 4.7 !
Why they didnt made screens with 4.5" !!!?
While We already saw the 3.5" !?
I think in my own opinion that 4.5" inchs is the best size if it could happen.
Grizzlyspid86, 04 Jan 2013I don't worry about the updates. I'm not using official firmware from Sony anyway. There's a g... moreNot beating a dead horse, Galaxy S was the 2010 flagship (S2 is the 2011 one). In the Sony side Arc S was launched in 2011, was the 2011 flagship and rivaled the flagship status with Galaxy S2 not the original Galaxy S (Arc S came out *after* S2 was already in the market).
Still I am with you that Samsung didn't do a good job support the original Galaxy S (but they did learn their lesson judging by the current support to the 2011 flagship). What can you say about Sony, do they ever learn anything?
3rd-party ROMs do not make miracles, they have to rely on the modules (drivers) that manufacturers release for their phones.
So, hows JB with HDMI on your 3rd-party ROM? It's either a "frankenbuild" or you don't have it, plain and simple.
