I wouldm't trust anything from China as being real, odds are its a clone.

I'm not sure it's actually a fake. Plus the counterfeits from the country are cloning the more popular OEMS such as Samsung and Apple but rarely do they ever clone Nokias, LGs and Sonys. Homegrown OEMs Meizu/Xiaomi/Jiayu (the latter 2 especially) are being increasingly cloned due to their popularity over there.

Most of the clones are iphone clones, s4/s3 clones and HTC One clones.

I've actually seen (and tried using) some Xperia clones, but they're extremely rare compared to Galaxy clones which you can find almost everywhere here in our country. :

I would love to see a major overhaul of Sony's UI, not sure why, because their current one is okay. I'd just like to see what they'd do...

Yes, it's too big, yet there are many people who bought the galaxy note so it might find its niche, especially in japan were many people would rather buy sony than samsung, if they have an option.

The side menu on the app drawer is already available at launch. On the pictures itself, there is no UI seen.

In fact, that SoftVer is kinda like dev support which in case XperiaBlog reported there is a PTCRB certified XZU firmware in the form of 14.1.B.1.510

Good info, though in the way it was delivered does not read very well.

You drink too much coffee today or does that keyboard suck that bad?
