Fraser Sequeira, 05 Aug 2013Guys ....the phone looks good. I would just have one issue before buying this phone. It comes ... moreQuattro would not be a couple of thousand bucks extra but lesser..my advice to go for grand instead of this if the mtk chipset is such a concern..anyways this ofers only 4 point mulitouch which shows its a no deal for a 5 incher
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!
sony xperias official person said it will b release in october. its that really truth? otherwise i ll b go with samsung or htc.. its very f..n disapoiting fact by sony.

because all.features are awesome and price is low.
AnonD-171681, 02 Aug 2013What is the reason for these high configurations (such as- 1.2 GHz quad core processor, 1 GB r... moreWell, Sony wants to compete with budget phones like Micromax and Karbonn and others, that's why it's so cheap. Also, it uses Mediatek Processor, and not Snapdragon, which is significantly cheaper, and used by almost all budget phones, which allows it to reduce their costs, and thus, the retail price of the mobile.
