Ghamar, 24 Jan 2014Way too expensive and I don't care how good it is!!!And your iphone is not expensive?
this phone is already available in switzerland with the price of 529 sfr. cheaper here.
Anubisss, 24 Jan 2014So you are talking about samsungI'm talking about the boxy design; all brands have a strong identity and hold to their design path, but in the case of Sony that design is too boxy even for today's brick-phone standards. Even back in the days of Sony-Ericsson, Sony's phones looked all edgy and lifeless and were a lot less popular because of that.
Are crazy people in here?
Where exactly is the high price?
In the chipset that the phone uses? In the camera 21mp? Or in its resistance? In display maybe? Ok, could be better, but all the rest fits in this price and phone!
I wasn't expecting something lower!
Good Sony.. I think I'm leaving my 1 month old lg g2 for u!
Sony is good but they better get their pricing right in order to profit.
M and M, 24 Jan 2014If only they made the design less boxy and edgy a lot more people would like them; it's unappe... moresony changes design once a year(thought there are exceptions where some phone looks more different),most dont even change their design like samsung,motorola,apple
and all phones look boxy kinda bad argument
If only they made the design less boxy and edgy a lot more people would like them; it's unappealing, almost scary to look at the Sony lineup, looks like a clone army.
Don´t understand why everyone are complaining at the price! OK, its expensive, but look at all the other top spec phone! (Samsung, apple, HTC, Nokia, LG). Everyone has the same price or higher! And YES, this is a top model phone, noe something like all the other "mini´s" out there.
Final price or preorder price from the website? it its final its 700 USD+, TOO much! I say why not buy a touch enabled i7 or i5 powered laptop or something in that amount!
geordie81, 24 Jan 2014well that's because its sweeden, scandanavian countries have much higer salaries in general th... moreWe in Sweden do definitely not have higher salaries then UK or the rest of Western Europe, we actually more often have lower salaries!
I'm from Sweden, and if costs €520 here, it'll probably cost around €450 or something like that in the UK. Never ever buy electronics in Sweden... I buy from Amazon.uk.
beckon, 24 Jan 2014Kinda expensivewell that's because its sweeden, scandanavian countries have much higer salaries in general then the uk and western europe, prices in these countries are often inflated, much like they are in australia, i used to live in denmark and it was more often the not the case.
