nice but still SONY cant seriously call this a flagship when other manufacturers are popping out flagships with double the processing power and RAM and JELLY BEAN!

And yet Mr. Bond picks this beauty from the lot. So, not bad after all.

Only thing I dnt like is the processing power and ram like u said other phones have more but for some reason I always liked Sony phones and the design they put on there phones they have a special place in my heart cuz my first phone was a Sony . So ima just get it and test it out and see how it performs.

Oh boy... SONY is really into some serious movie-marketing since the company is making lots of very popular movies such as The Amazing Spider-man, the Bond movies and so... and it really uses that part in its advantage and advertises its own smartphones witch is not such a bad idea since other companies don't have that opportunity. Is it helping? Well, we'll just have to see about that, I guess, but I heard some people complaining about that advertising is spoiling those movies witch is not the case with me though.

THE PHONE I'VE BEEN WAITING for and I knew it would be 99$ just like the iON. and to let phonearena know it's A HIGH END DEVICE AND FLAGSHIP you still don't want to compare the GSIII LG OPTIMUS G OR NOKIA with the XPERIA T JUST BECAUSE it's not a quad core doesn't have to be a called as you say it LOW END DEVICE. I'm buying this phone the BOND PHONE and it will be my SPY PHONE. Since i can't afford the GALAXY NOTE II i'll buyt his baby. AWESOME can't wait
