Well, about the 1.5GHz processor, you guys might considering using 2500 mAh for you not to charge from time to time hehehe. But everything is awesome !! I got freaked out when I got the news about this unit. I'm using Xperia Ray and hoping this unit will come here in the Philippines.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2012@ retail always a unlock version is available out of US and in US once you get At&T versio... moreAT&T will unlock it if you're a good customer over 90 days, and in some cases earlier if you're doing international travel. This is the first SE well Sony that I have been impressed with in sometime.
[deleted post]just to mention i mean from sony starting with name H
Anonymous, 11 Jan 2012Everything is just fine but where is the Gorilla Glass?! scratch resistant =/= gorilla glass .... moreWait until MWC at Barcelona when Samsung surely gonna bring Galaxy S3 to blow it away. I don't like Samsung (built quality for their flagships is junk ) but that doesn't make Sony the best. It's like whwn Galaxy S2 blowed away Iphone 4 ... then, Iphone 4s appeared(returned the blow)
Wow, the battery life is terrible! How are so many people actually interested in this thing? Looks-wise it just looks like another boring black brick of a phone.
12 hours only for music playback? 4 hours only for 3G talk time? This thing is a joke!
I was just about to buy a Sony Xperia Arc S some weeks ago while searching for similar phones I discovered Xperia Pro (like Arc but with keyboard although no S version)so it's great because I am a former blackberry user.
Now Sony is about to launch some awesome devices and I have no doubt I'm gonna buy one of them. The question is:
Will Sony launch a phone with this specifications and a keyboard? If they do so I'm sure they will catch a wider target than if they don't, me between them and last but not least more customers will be satisfied.
Sony please give a kyeboard version of this phones.
Everything is just fine but where is the Gorilla Glass?! scratch resistant =/= gorilla glass ..
anyway this phone should be made into a smaller body (3.7 inch screen) imo
Sony is literally blowing the competition out of the way, idd rather buy this phone instead of the SGS2
Great entry sony ! hope you will bring best technology to us...amazing spec ... i just dnt like its look rest is good
i think sony will be the most popular phone manufacture soon.they are strong in every field you can imagine. audio quality,camera quality,display technology etc.by the way this phone has a stylish design and awesome specification so the only concern remain price.hopefully sony adopt a reasonable price tag for it.
panzershrek, 11 Jan 20124 hours of talk time? that's awfulConsidering the specs, its dual core 1.5ghz man.. It should use more battery power in its processes. Try to read the specs carefully.. Your such an eeewwwww. LOL peace yow!.... :)
we can order it from japan when it is released....most japanese smart phone are No1 in the world...
