I found a typo: "Size: 114mm × 72mm × 8.1mm, 141g"
The 114 mm should be 144 mm according to the source.

this all sounds impressive but what about their software? are there any info on that? can It be compared to sense which I prefer, touchwiz and other well known skins? this phone did get my attention but I need a good sounding phone like support for ultra high quality audio or to have beats (it does boost the sound quality even though its just an eq) on board. and the last question will the off contract version support europeans bands?

Who cares about the software, right? Just root it and flash a stock OS on there and it will be buttery smooth.

Probably has MIUI on it. Slap on a custom launcher and it'll feel much like a standard Android UI, but more polished. I used to run MIUI on my N1 with Go Launcher installed, and later on my OG Tab with Nova Launcher, worked great with both. MIUI has some awesome themes as well, if you're into that.

With a former Google exec becoming CEO, you can bet it will be close to stock Android... I would think.

That is why Samsung's ass will get kicked. The is no better deal for an Android smartphone.

Xiaomi is already beating SS in China with their older model. SS has great world sales though so it would be an interesting competition to see who is the top Android dog if Xiaomi exported this world wide as well.

Double the performance of the Octa???
What the hell are talking about? Tegra 4 GPU has about 75 GFLOPS vs SGX544MP3 51.8 GFLOPS, which is ''only'' 50% more which is still a lot. And I know that everything is not about GFLOPS, it is just the raw performance. However Tegra 4 has better performance than Octa but it consumes more battery and more heat. Yes Tegra 4 is great in performance but not by that much.

Looks very nice. Looks like a Nokia that isn't a hunchback or really really fat. Take notice Nokia.

By far the best value for money on the market, period.
Low asking price yet absolutely premium design and materials and absolutely top notch specs.

I kind of feel it has a lot of Sony DNA in it.
