Sony Xperia phones look good but have sharp edges which do not feel good in the hand. It's a big trade-off. So why doesn't Sony make rounder edges? Surely that is not beyond the bounds of reason and science?
Apart from that Sony is getting better and protected smartphones are the way forward, but even Sony's soon-to-be-released models like the Xperia ZR are still showing Android 2.1 when the Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy S4 are running 4.2.2 ,,, why are other manufacturers behind on this I wonder?

No dude, S4 is a beauty! The premium and elegant feel of plastic is unmatched by glass/aluminum.

It's a bit hard to detect because I had seen many people saying they prefer polycarbonate over glass or alunimum. Seriously, every post regarding GS4 will have it in them

The best looking android smartphone for me is the Sony Xperia Arc.. i dont like Xperia Z because it is flat w/ sharp edges, it is beautiful but it feels awful.
I want a Sony Xperia Arc design w/ larger screen and thinner bezels=best looking smartphone -- better than htc one(small-looking display with huge bezels)

as long as it has good speaker, good camera, good battery life than i would accept an older chip assuming this is a high end phone.

I'm a sony fans and i find your comment shows how narrow your mind is. You actually disgrace Xperia fans.

When the 1st touch-enabled screen smartphone appeared, other OEMs that followed is copying, and thus should be named as copycat, shouldnt they?

Would that first touch screen phone be an HTC perhaps? I had one years ago running Windows with a stylus which you touched onto the screen, though you could use a finger nail.
