I hate to say it, but this is the first time since the Sony Ericsson P990 that I've wanted to buy a Sony phone...
I still reckon this was a failed Nexus phone.
I just hope Sony back it up with proper update support (has been an absolute fail in the past) and an unlocked bootloader.

And finally we get to see and feel Asahi Dragontail glass :D

21. MC1123 (Posts: 1210; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
yeah..HTc designs are good too but still nokia and sony are way better!!
HTC 8X is just a rip off of Lumia phone btw!!!

nokia designs suck, period.
although the side ports on this phone looks good, it's still just a rectangle.

Agree and true, but let's not forget Samsung P300 calculator phone edge2edge design phone....

That's fine. But you can't take away the fact that Samsung handsets 'sell'.

VERY nice looking phone! Always wanted an Xperia, but every time I get a new phone I totally forget they exist then I'm like SH*T! I wanted to try an Xperia and I'm past my 30 day return period!

The button has a circular look to it. I'm pretty sure Apple will sue for that. It also has a similar shape.
13. cripton805 (Posts: 745; Member since: 18 Mar 2012)
I'm not trying to troll on Apple, but I really do think they will sue...
15. HTCOE (Posts: 190; Member since: 20 Nov 2011)
nothing new in the design at all...the email sent out about "The Extraordinary Is Coming" must have something to do with a feature on the Sony Software or camera capabilities. other than that this design is not extraordinary by any mean it's looks nice just not to that exaggerated word at all..just saying

Did you notice the curved Asahi Dragontail glass?
I seriously think Sony have pulled out all stops and gone for it on this one. This design is so much better than the Ericsson days!

@cripton805 hows apple gonna sue the company in which they stole from in the first place! smh
29. cripton805 (Posts: 745; Member since: 18 Mar 2012)
You can sue anyone. Doesnt mean you will win

Hopefully it'll go on sale quickly. I was annoyed earlier, but today could turn out to have been a good day for my phone to finally die!

A thing of beauty......I absolutely have to have one of these babies Z or ZL choose your poison. I believe someone asked the question as to where is the Extraordinary in this? I suggest you get a new pair of glasses as you will be hard pushed to find a more beautifully designed handset than this.

So you're telling us you have not heard of the Razr, Razr MAXX, Razr HD, Razr HD MAXX, Razr M, Atrix, Atrix 2, Atrix HD etc?

Have you been in a cave, isolated from all of mankind for the last 6 months? Oh wait, you've probably been brainwashed by Apple products..

Hmm. The flaps looks sturdy enough to last.. and man, it comes with Dragontrail glass! I think it's better than the 'soft' GorillaGlass 2. we'll see how it fairs later
23. cncrim (Posts: 364; Member since: 15 Aug 2011)
Indeed a beautiful phone, however over all I still like to many other phone because not clean and simplicity.......
27. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
Will be buying this phone for sure, can't wait.
