When I start going the unlocked phone + prepaid SIM card route, I will definitely have Sony as my #1 choice. I love thier UI and their designs are perfect. And while their colors aren't as vibrant as the Nokia Lumia series of phones, I like that they at least try to make different colors for their phones.

sorry people, but probably no 2013 phone can beat the nokia 808 in camera, remember that phones are still stuck on the moar mpx phase, lenses are very important. Anyway, most of the times, nature > tech The human eye has 250 mpx and better autofocus better than any camera, nuff said

The mp race is over if you did'nt know they already made 20mp+ phones. But sony is improving the sensors at the moment the exmor r was already a big improvement and now it is the stacked exmor rs sensor in this beast. And probably also an glass lens as they would make it out of glass and alluminium

Anyone have any guess on the carrier. I'm hoping Verizon but it seems by the name and bands it's going to T-mobile or AT&T :(
