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.

I'm using an Xperia Play right now, and it's a piece of crap. Sorry to burst your fanboy bubble. Sony isn't all that.

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.

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"

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.

Well, I guess that quote can be confirmed when it was said that Apple praises Sony.
