AnonD-45523, 07 Jan 2013sony should have launched it with cortex A-15 based processor since snapdragon S4 is a generat... morePure Cortex a15 cores when compared to a9 or modified a9's as such are no boons to batterylife.unless they r used in Big little configuration coupled with power saving a7 cpu(as is expected with exynos 5 quad) or a companion core like in tegra 4 but yes performance wise they r superior.
Also since xperia z is now announced,it's testing must've been going on for 2-3 months prior.don't think any quad core cortex a15 cpu would've been ready by then.
Monster Specs! 5.0 inches but Smaller than Htc Dna, Xperia Z and Even SIII... Nice!
Pls release a mobile with same Specification and high battery BUT SCREEN SIZE SHOULD BE 3.7-4.0inch HD display phone with about 2000-2200mA battery...

Its actually qualcomms custom version of A15 the same way as their Original snapdragon is their own version of cortex A8 but slightly improved
Look at where the front-facing camera was placed. Reminds me of the N9.
wow amazing sony is my best.hope I cn chnge into zl frm xperia s.hm bt it will b great if the display size is a little bit smaller (xpra s display size is prfct)
T-Mobile USA got left out again, Sony why kill your diehard customers. Waited for this forever only to find out that i have to switch carriers to get it.
sony should have launched it with cortex A-15 based processor since snapdragon S4 is a generation behind when it will be launched other phones will be cortex A-15 based.
Although real world performance would be not that behind.
I am not sure about battery life since sony has been known to put smaller batteries
Rest of the specs and features look amazing
TMach, 06 Jan 2013You do realise that Sony was the second strongest performer after Samsung last year and out pe... moreSony was the third biggest smart phone manufacturer last year by market share (in quarter 3). They were good, but we will see what will happen this year.
Here is another link.
DDas, 07 Jan 2013Noooooooooooooo.................... Non-removable Li-Ion battery!!!!!!! Sony, Why???????????... moreIt doesn't matter that battery is Non-removable if it is of high capacity like 3000mah.Which will easily last for more than 2 years.
Its written its going to be released in Q2, they should release it much sooner. From q2 onwards all eyes and ears will be on sgs4.
Its best for sony to release this early and grab as much as market as possible globally.I had one and it was amazing with good quality. Also sony should lean a thing or too about marketing from nokia and samsung.
Taking sgs4 head on won't do sony any good, so its better to get it released soon.
XperiaUser, 07 Jan 2013I cant wait to own this BEAST fone, just hope battery wont suck my expectations. Now i can cha... moreWhen not using your data..simply shut it off under network settings and make sure under accounts and sync..that that is shut off as well,when not using it as well..I get two full days when having the features shut off on my android phone.
Non-removable Li-Ion battery!!!!!!!
85-94% there, compared to the soon to be S4.
End of the day...
Sony will have better camera and designs.
I'm getting this one, dust and water resistance!
Finally getting away from sammy, now back to sony since sony erric bar phone :)
