This isnt to bad of a deal. Good for those who dont want a larger phone but want pretty top of the line specs.

Thats awesome! I love high end phones, but I don't like huge screens. 4.4 is much better for me than 5 inches and 4.7 inches. If a phone manufacturer made a flagship phone in a 4.3 inch screen size I'd be ecstatic.

Care to tell me what would you need a high end specs for?
Heavy gaming?
Heavy browsing?
Both are pointless on a relatively small screen.

Seems to me that the Xperia V has you covered!

I have sprint which is CDMA so I the Xperia V won't work for me. Although, I do admit its very very close to what I'd like as well as the water resistant aspect is a big draw for me. Pretty much I'd like the SIII in a 4.3 inch form factor. I'm not sure if they have HD 4.3 inch screens, but thats what I'd like.

I have the SIII now and its hard to reach everything with my thumb and requires a large pocket to hold, but I don't want to give up the camera or HD screen since I watch movies during my commute to and and from work everyday. And even if I was willing to part with the HD screen and camera, the lower end android phones seem to pose too many problems for my friends for me to try them.

i think Sony is the only company that makes HD 4.3 inch screens! And i am with you as well, still wating on a power packed spec monster in a pocketable size......and im sure we are not the only ones :)

Gosh your argument is a little...batty!There's not one person on this forum that can adapt to a screen size of 3.5-4.3 inches. I have massive thumbs and I am perfectly comfortable on the screen of the iPhone 4S and comfortable on the screen size of the Samsung galaxy SIII....

As far as gaming goes, you need to try gaming on a phone with a 3.7 inch screen such as the one V. It isn't all that bad. Its no worse then playing games on an iPod touch but better because the aspect ratio makes the phone wider.

I use a HTC one X and a prepaid One V on the side. I seldom use landscape mode, because its just irritating using a cell phone with two hands when web browsing. I don't mind double tapping....

The HTC One V has a relatively small screen that's 3.7 inches. The PPI is decent at 252 so legibility is good. I'm content with the screen size of the One V, I just wish it had a dual core processor. I just don't see how your argument is justifiable.

I'm with you on this. And no on-screen buttons to take up screen space, please.

It's insane how people go in awe every single time they see such utterly generic design!
I could've came up with that "design " in less than a minute.
There's absolutely NOTHING special and creative about it

What are you doing commenting you should be out designing for all the top companies!?

It's an opinion, and if you want 'utterly generic' look at Samsung's portfolio of black plastic clad boring phones.

And it has a Super-Retina display instead of iPhones Retina:) I hate how Apple manages to "brand" such features, and the rest follow the lead.

That's why I like google. Because they don't run for money like Apple and Microsoft.

THIS is what the iphone 5 should've looked like apple.this is one sexy beast.although the screen is a bit small for my preference [owning an s3 has ruined me :P] but still a pretty amazing mobile.honestly,an android shouldn't come rooted.it's easy to root your phone if you know what you are doing :| flyme os looks beautiful [MUCH better compared to it's Chinese competitor MIUI imo].
