james2312, 11 Jan 2014I agree. I put myself a limit of 500USD. According sony it should cost more than the xperia Z ... moreWait.. You willing to wait until August if this phone cost $550 at launch? To save $50? In August it isnt worth $500 anymore, if you pay $550 in Feb/March you get half a year with a top of the line phone, 50 divided by 180 days, thats like just above a quarter a day. Your logic is illogical.
Protocol, 07 Jan 2014Best mini phone I have ever seen. Hats off to Sony. I just don't like non removable battery. I... moreI have the xperia zr(which you can call xperia z mini). Removable batteries make your phone thicker. So, to fit all those high end specs in such a small body, a compromise has to be made.
cc, 07 Jan 2014That black front panel with big bezel is so ugly...Do they have designers at Sony ?? Well, it's a dust and water resistant. What were you expecting?

Anonymous, 12 Jan 2014price range for this mobile?At CES '14, Sony said the price is more expensive than last year flagship, Sony Xperia Z but cheaper than current flagship, Sony Xperia Z1.

Its An IPS Triluminos LCD with superior viewing angles and great contrast.

This is the perfect smartphone I've ever met so far. Just perfectly crafted in any angle. I dont need no jelly case in this. I surely love to just show its beauty. Specs checks all my boxes too. 10 stars
