it smaller than xsp plus its waterproof ability.
look into the photo. its like a camera button. its surprise for mid-range user.
i'm not into specific brand, much better if sony includes the sony xperia zr LTE connectivity, this is the best design sony so far. covers from mid to high end.
Good specs, good size for the people complaining about big phone!
8gb is enough as long as it have card slot then buy 62gb sdcard.
I think I'm waiting for this. coz I like its thin bezel on 4.6" screen. so it will be a little bit small phone. good to carry on.
wish for that is to have a shutter button, battery replacement. :-)
You are right junay 8 GB is not enough
I'm using the Z and she's damn good
Im confuse between this n the SP what do u say bros which one
junay, 28 Apr 2013This is a great phone but the 8GB storage made it inferior to the 2 yr old Galaxy S2. It shoul... moreHi Junay,
1. It should have 3000mAh battery. But 2330 is enough for 4.6 inch screen. Choosing the number of cores is an option in all jelly bean mobiles. U can select 2 cores if u want to save battery.
2. 8 gb internal is more than enough. U may xpand memory using SD card.
3. Best feature about this phone is it's 2gb RAM complementing a good processor.
Only thing that we need to look for is the pricing of this phone. Sony needs to careful in that respect.

So many of the tech giants are so def to the they sell to. Hahahaha. I think its just plan stupid to produce what you like and ttry to sell to to people who want something else. Even apple that produces phones to have almost all that the consumer wants, "game playability, good resolution, etc" is so deaf to the wants and demands of people. Imagine jailing an os to the point where you can't use the bluetooth except with other ios devices. Can't do many productive things eg(web development with phpmysql) except to play games and waste all your time because they are so deaf to customer demands. Imagine an xperia using adreno instead of powervr. Sooooooo annoying!

It shoul... moreI agree with you about the 8G not enough but this a midrange device .Also about the 3000MAH battery ,how many flagship phones this year have a 3000MAH battery??? look at the S4,HTC One,Xperia Zand ZL all quadcore highend devices with no more than 2600Mah battery .
new9star, 28 Apr 2013are you mad ? it'll be in Q3 .. not Q1So what ??? I believe the price is gonna be higher than usual midrangers (Example : Xperia SP for 450$).
brynn, 27 Apr 2013True Sony has crippled internal storage for years.I just can't understand why they are doing this. Sony is a famous, Japanese company. The less known Japanese Fujitsu(and probably Sharp) can make phones with 64 GB of internal storage and Sony can't??? Those phones are also waterproof.
This is a great phone but the 8GB storage made it inferior to the 2 yr old Galaxy S2. It should have at least 16GB inernal storage for apps. And since it has Quad Core, it shoul have at least 3000mAh. Sony should listen to comments and suggestions.
Smartphone Fan, 28 Apr 2013Compared to the price of the SP ,The ZR is going to be around 500 Euros ....LOLare you mad ?
it'll be in Q3 .. not Q1
