    How your unreleased flagship phone not ship with Jelly Bean is beyond me.

  • Thx84

    Let me have it please!

    First Sony phone I'd consider buying, as long as the battery lasts longer than my Galaxy Nexus (which ain't hard to beat!)

    • Kenny O

      Just out of curiosity which G-Nex version do you have. I was pleasantly surprised with the battery life on the HSPA+ version, I'm getting about 20-22 hours of moderate to heavy use (very few phone calls though).

    Not the crappy snapdragon s3 processor with a shockingly bad for a high end phone adreno 220 GPU, it wasn't very good when it was in the qhd htc sensation way over a year ago. Powering a HD display, wow this SoC is going to perform crap. Shame on you Sony. I would rather use my old Galaxy s2 (international with exynos 4210) I think I will definatly stick with my exynos 4412 galaxy s3 and exynos 4210 galaxy s2. To make a good phone you need to start with a good SoC.

      Seems that you hadn't seen the video yet...they are using Snapdragon S4 you dimwit

      • http://twitter.com/JB_AndroidGeek Danny

        Thanks mate, miss read it. :) It's still not a great chip, if you look at the cpu integer performance of the dual core chip it is only mildly better than last gen, TIomap 4460/4470 (1.5ghz) or exynos 4210/4212 1.4ghz dual core chips and is not even close to the current gen quad core cortex a9. It may have a few features borrowed from the new A15
        architecture which gives it a bit of an edge over similarly clocked pure a9 architecture dual core CPU's but it is only mild. Although in the likes of quadrant, it looks much better than it is due to it's decent memory and I/O performance which massively bulk out it's score. The GPU is still lacking for a 720p screen. I would have liked to have seen a better SoC in the device as it doesn't look bad.

      It's not the S3, it's the S4 Krait. The gangbusters one.

  • Glenn

    Is it just me, or does the on screen nav bars look weird on a non Galaxy Nexus phone?

  • Danny Holyoake

    This phone, but with a Nexus name... oh god.

    • Kenny O

      Damn, you took the words right out of my mouth. I would love to see a stock 4.1.1 build on this device.

  • http://twitter.com/Alphonso_S Joseline’s Spotter

    so which one is supposed to be the better one? The T or the V? I would pick the V if it is the only one with LTE. I actually like these phones which is a first for me with Sony phones.

    Sony disappoints again!
    The Xperia S looks so much better than this.. Of course the specs are better, but that's not all that we need, are they?
    And why no Jelly Bean?? It always delays it's updates & manages to screw them as well. It's safe to assume that the 4.1 update will take an astonishingly long period of time.

    Good battery life and a Nexus brand and I would consider to buy it. Hope that the Sony Nexus rumors are true and it will have similar specs. Looking forward to november.

  • Fiona

    Uh oh, that looks like another rectangle with rounded corners. Look out Sony!

    Great phone, horrible name. Letters tell me nothing about which device is better in the Xperia line

    • moelsen8

      at least it's minimal.. which is what i like about it.

  • moelsen8

    i love what sony's doing with android (especially their naming.. or lack thereof compared to the usual suspects). these products look terrific. i really hope they break into the us market a little more.

  • sky stanojevic

    All my phone/carrier decisions will be placed once the Next nexus is announced .. and i really REALLY hope sony gets it shinning time with the Nexus brand.. they need it.. sony makes nothing short of High quality stuff :)-

  • aatifsumar

    Aside from 3 Android Buttons instead of 4 (VERY welcome, btw), don't see how this is too different from the Acro S and XPERIA ION.

  • Mohammad Akawi

    Helllllloooo, DUAL CORE I have been wishing for month for a quad-core Sony phone since my experia s sucks battery life due to the cores are alwayyyyssss running on maximum performance. This phone is a 4.6" experia s.
