Wordsworth, 05 Aug 2013Perfect example of a company losing the opportunity to capture a market segment despite having... moreThe official price is 16k, cant be such a bad deal for a mtk chip packed inside a sony device, still better than your canvas 4 & all other loser brands which over the same chip in more or less the same price & with lesser quality & reliability, not to forget with the shtiest camera's & resale value! This even beats the grand offering actually more at a lesser price from a reputed brand...way to go..best budget phablet ever!!!
Dying to have this phone launched i believe its 30th sep for india..havent used a sony phone in ages & this actually compliments my needs ( 5 inch, dual sim, 1gb ram etc)..in the meanwhile im stuck with a grand :((

Perfect example of a company losing the opportunity to capture a market segment despite having a product to do so! Kudos to Samsung for successfully doing this with the Grand some time back. Sony INDIA dealers expect release at Oct end/Nov'13 at a price of >19K. This makes me wonder, is Sony even listening? GSMARENA is the leading global mobile review site, and to not react nor respond to the pulse of the market is just lame.
Guys ....the phone looks good. I would just have one issue before buying this phone. It comes with a MTK chipset.The same chipset that is used in all the cheap local brands around the globe ( Micromax, Karbonn, Celkon, Xolo, Lava, etc). The chances of encountering lagging issues in the long run are pretty high. My suggestion - Put in a couple of thousand bucks extra and buy a Samsung Quattro before you regret your decision . The specs are almost the same.
mediatek is better and more powerful than qualcomm chipset.. just refer this link...
Eagerly waiting for device not to buy (I have Xperia ZL) but to see hows Sony going go get the best out of MTK6589
Making fast phones with fast processors is nothing great
Lets see how amazing will be use Sony UI on a MTK6589 at a low price point
I just wish Sony should have waited for MTK6589T it offers better clock speed(1.5Ghz) and better graphics
Thank you so much guys...
So it means that it's processor will show a poor performance than that of Xperia-L or Xperia-M?
Is it's processor is faster than dual core snapdragon S4 1 GHz? , as it is Quad core 1.2 GHz.
On reading all the reviews I changed my mind and now I am planning for Xperia-L or Xperia-M....
enough waiting...would b going for another cell,sony's not only the one mobile brand in the world
The reason why this phone is so cheap is because it uses the worlds cheapest chipset & processor from Mediatek which is used in all cheap rated high spec phones like micromax,xolo,kaarbon & all other China phones.But the only reason that you should buy this phone is because it's SONY. Make,Believe!
