atleast it is not as Brick, Thick, Heavy, Sharp edges like ur Nokia Lumia 9xx,10xx
and Sony atleast chages design of its flagship every year
not like Lumia 800,900,920,1020 same design language but different sizes :D

LOL you are funny, i dont own a Lumia phone!
But there is no doubt that the Lumia 1020 will crush this phone, even a tester of this phone said that it's nothing special!
And what about iphone and samsung? Their devices also looks the same for a few years now!

How can the Lumia 1020 crush the Honami if all the appeal the 1020 has is its camera? The Honami may not have a 40mp camera on board but its overall list of specs crushes the 1020's appeal by a long stretch.

Great, now all we have to do is wait for announcement and reviews and official camera samples.

What disappointment is that? Are you one of the little girls that keep on whining about the big bezel? Or is it the lack of xenon flash? Go have a coke and a smile.

Wait a minute, it's black, rectangular and has rounded corners, like the hundreds of things out there. Is Apple gonna sue them?

Perhaps you should read the articles you link. Asking "what would Sony do?", then designing something that looked nothing like any Sony product is not inspiration.

Both. I know it may get a bit annoying. Can't blame pa because these smartphones getting close to release date so its obvious

Sad, Not much leaks about note III ?? But that's great because we might get some big surprises.
we now know almost everything about xperia Z1 & iPhones. So not much surprises

Who cares about the Note III? It's a Phablet and it's a Samsung phone. It'll probably look bigger than the note II with an updated processor.

Pass.

Sony is really bad hiding their product from leaked unlike Samsung. We know almost everyhitng about it already.

It's basically just a black rectangle... What is so special about the design?
