Too bad Galaxies don't have beautiful designs and premium materials like on the Xperias.

Works both ways..

Hmm lets see I had 2 galaxies s4s hated the cheap plastic design but watevs decided to still keep em and try em out they both had the same problems they overheated got so hot couldn't even keep in my pocket. Returned them got an xperia Z and an an htc one so far so happy both feel better no cheap plastic and they dont overheat.

samsung dilute the quality of their galaxy line with too many unnecessary phones and similar soap bar designs. they shoul have kept their galaxy line limited to Galaxy S series, Note series, and S mini series and offered slightly premium design/materials. even if you pick up a low end xperia, it oozes premium-ness. same cannot be said about samsung phones.

Same here. Everyone asking about my Xperia V because it looks nicer than Galaxy. The problem with Sony is their marketing. Most people thought Sony dont make Android (more known for Walkman and Cybershot series) so they assume all Samsung phone is android. They dont even know Android belong to Google not Samsung

If you don't care about the premium materials of Xperia phones and waterproofing/dustproofing then why are you Samsung fanboys always say "Samsung is so innovative because they now made a metal phone and it is also dust/waterproof! I am so going to buy it." Please, fanboyism blinds you.

42. spiderpig2894 (Posts: 413; Member since: 10 Jan 2012)


Well, you are talking about Sony Ericsson and NTT Docomo is talking about Sony Mobile so there is a huge difference between the 2011 and the 2013 Xperias. I agree that the Play sucks, I didn't liked it since the leaks. Also, I am not a Sony fanboy, I am neutral. I just stated the fact what and how blinded fanboys always praise their favorite brand.

its Sony ERICSSON Xperia Play, and the article is about SONY. There is a HUGE difference. Even i say that Sony Ericsson sucked ballz. Try a SONY device and see for yourself.

Is it water-proof or water-resistant? Technically there's a big difference between the two terms often confused with each other. Sony's site says it is "water resistant"
http://store.sony.com/p/Water-resistant,-13MP-camera,-Waterproof/en/p/XZC6602WH

if we debate with just wrong facts we shouldn't be calling one from other side of fence as "fanboys" :)

Oh yeah. Didn't see that coming. Well, if I am a Sony fanboy I could easily just say it as water resistant but I didn't so I am not.

Sony has no innovation at all right now Samsung is the king of the phablet and smartphone. Sony just copying Samsung Phablet! Thats the truth! Metallic design and waterproof!Hello they just copy it from other brand.....i know Samsung also copy but they innovate bringing futuristic device. How many percent does Sony have in the market?NONE!LOL!

How ignorant of you. Please tell me how is the addition of a stylus more innovative then having a highly sensitive screen which lets you use most pointed things as your own stylus.

Innovation ? Samsung never created and manufactured an all new device that changed whole market. Real innovation is something like Walkman or Iphone. Samsung is not an innovator; Samsung copies pre-existing technology with mostly minor changes.

The Walkman was a massive innovation in the late 70's early 80's I mean come on carrying music around in your pocket was just a madman's dream till the Walkman came along.
