Unannounced Sony Xperia G to have a 4.8-inch display, might not be waterproof

0. phoneArena 14 Feb 2014, 16:59 posted on

The Xperia G seems to be a mid-end smartphone, so it shouldn't cost too much. Sony may want to announce it at MWC, at the same time with the rumored Sirius...

I kinda like the camera placement on the center of the phone. Thought at first the back panel is made out of matte material but it's also made out of glass. Nice hardware for a mid-range. Sony is really stepping up this time.

Probably glossy plastic like the recently found Z1 Compact... which has bothered many people already...

But if its strong enough, then is fine by me

Do people really care if the phone is waterproof or not?
Are we talking showers with our phones?

For some it matters. It's a plus. Just in case of accidents.

I do take showers with my phone. I bring my phone when I'm also in the toilet. And I listen to music when I'm in the tub! ;)

Each phone has its own advantages and disadvantages.
For some people viewing angles are important but I'm
sure most people will not have a problem with Xperia SP screen.
Because smartphone is a very personal device in fact some people will use a Anti-Spy privacy screen protector and the screen has a good quality.

And built in white balance settings will help you with color
reproduction.

Its the successor of the Sony Xperia SP maybe?
But why a quad core 1.4Ghz,like in the Moto G,not a dual core krait 1.7Ghz,in the Xperia SP,
when that dual core krait is better than that quad core crap...
Sony..impress me more.

Sorry dude but durability is much more important than something useless like "ultra thin bezels" That's why most of us use protective cases.

Thanks to waterproofing you can bring your phone to any place without worrying about your phone will be damaged because of water or without having to use some bulky and expensive protective cases that will make your phone bigger and thicker.

Its not hard to make bezelless smartphone from a flimsy and thin plastics even some chinese manufacturers is able to do that.

The waterproofing is not some sort of gimmick like what Samsung does with its phones. Waterproofing is practical and way more useful than you think!
