sisore, 09 May 2013Glad to hear that. But its kind of hyperbolic by saying that its as thick as a book, no?but it is .. when SP is in a leather pouch.
I think they could have made it a little less heavy and thinner ... also don't see the point of a non removable battery and then they add a reset switch which you still have to take the back cover off to get at. May as well have had a removable battery.
Maybe someone will figure out how to remove SP battery and upload the video :D

If SP had not been a metal brick (maybe a bit less metal and more attention to detail like ArcS and decent camera like ArcS) I might have upgraded!
I would like to ask gsmarena Are the results of Loudspeaker Is With Xloud On Or Off? Plz Clarify

But I'm not stopping you, you can go on as you like :)
Sony phones have always very weak loudspeaker, hate that...What can't they make a speaker you can actually hear ringing in your bag ?? Won't buy Sony for that reason

Seems to be taking long time to release the L so we can compare the camera quality etc ...

I've been coming back here every day since last week, still nothing..
I like Sony product, I used to have a CMD J5, but somehow I just feel that Sony will always design a cool looking, rather trendy phone, but then always seem to lack some substance inside. For example, my gf use to have xperia mini, and I have a xray, pretty cool phone at the time they were released, but after a while, the limitation of such phones just become so overwhelming. Nowadays, in particular in terms of smartphone, there is no justification of small screen size at all, and lack of internal memory, especially the user accessible one, will be a big No No. So the SP is flawed in that it has only 8gb of internal memory, and even having a SD slot still.make this phone a slight disappointment. No matter whether you have a phone that is high end or mid range, you are still utilizing the same system, same bunch of apps, so lack of memory space is a big turn-off. Additionally, the poor performance of the camera on a Sony phone is totally inexcusable. I was considering a SP, but now I rather look some place else.
I guess the lack of battery test must mean that the phone performs really good and you have not run it through yet. Or whats the holdup?
Why does not have battery test for this phone?
This phone look great for less budget.

Does a phone really need to be thick and 155g in 2013?

AMOLEDS loose their wow factor after 1 yr of use... as happened in my Galaxy s2,.
