i like the stylish look of this phone coz this has the unique sophisticated look and i believe in Sony's products. plus this phone is water resistant! the only thing that makes me wanna back out in getting this is because of the upcoming Optimus G from LG. it has double the power of any of the new phones from Sony! 1.5GHz quad core CPU and a better GPU Adreno 320 which makes gaming better too! i hope Sony will make quad core phones in 6 mos or less than a year time that will be ahead than any of the smartphones out or will be out at that time. if Krait is still the best, then hope they'll still use it and make the CPU a little overclocked at maybe 1.7GHz and above and a RAM of 2GB and Adreno 320 GPU too! i know Sony will make a better device than LG at anytime so i hope it happens. i remember posting the Optimus G's features on Xperia S' page before XS' release here in the Philippines and before the quad core phones' anouncements and i remember wishing for Sony to release it and in a couple of months, LG was the one who announced it first so i bet Sony will go head to head against LG and Sammy this 2012 and 2013 as the best android phone maker. best of luck Sony!
amalchummar, 06 Sep 2012is sony xperia v really 1.5 GHz dual core kraitz???? because i dont see it in the specificatio... moreit only doesn't show here but it also has a Krait S4 CPU coz all of the flagships T, TX and V have the same hardwares inside and about the benchmark results? kindly look at the news here in GSMARENA about Note 2's benchmark scores result and you will be surprised that One V got the highest score among the androids that are out and announced that were already tested! S3 and One X were blown out of the water by the XV! ^^
Sid, 04 Sep 2012Why there isn't led backlit lcd display .....in it ?? But obviously this cost around 20000... moreSONY uses new technology that boosts the contrast of the screen in there new bravia engine2 screen is mindblowing..
CLY DE, 06 Sep 2012Phone is - IP57 certified - dust and water resistant - Water proof up to 1 meter and 30 minu... moreyes according to some source they are using a special gorilla glass which is also shatter proof..
Leo lopez, 07 Sep 2012how is it? is it available in the u.s already? does it support micro sim? i hope not.no, it uses the normal sim ..
nen, 07 Sep 2012when launch in malaysia & how much it cost ????I think its not going to be launched in Malaysia since Malaysia doesn't support LTE yet. I read an article in CNet Asia that this phone is not going to be launched in Malaysia, only TX and J will be available in Q4 this year. Let's hope this phone will be available after DiGi Comm. and Celcom Comm. launched their LTE early next year.
Yuri, 04 Sep 2012so, is it safe to say, that for ANDROID right now, it;s clear and so much better to get Sony X... moreNot ultimately, no...but it IS safe to say that a decent dual core (krait, scorpion, blah) has the ability to beat the gs3 for example...xperia's are not the only dual core powered phones out there...u ve got like 10 lg's clocked at 1.5ghz (optimus 4g lte, optimus true, nitro, spectrum, viper, and many more) you got the new Razr's and a lot more, all im saying...quad cores arent much better than dual cores... For me though, i had a great experience with sony ericsson, and i think this phone is perfect for me...so i think its the best device out there...for me
A smaller version of this would be perfect 4 me. 3.5" to 3.7" display with same features and design. xperia ray 2 maybe? =)
vish, 05 Sep 2012Relally bad experiance i have purchased the xperia U but this phone is having lot of touch pro... moreWhy you already got one? did you experienced it yet? Don't judge the phone yet while it's not yet been released.
how is it? is it available in the u.s already?
does it support micro sim? i hope not.
The phone looks awesome.. when will this be available in india.. waiting for this beauty..
This phone is perfect. I can't wait to put my hands on this beauty :)
From me, it was much better with Sonyericsson than Sony! That design... That sophistication... That functionality... none of those tastes could be found in any of these new devices. How many of you agree with me??
