do not matter, bcoz if Sony is gonna out A HAYABUSA in summer than, Samsung is gonna blow them out of the battlefield by taking out its FERRARI i.e. Galaxy S3. no pieces of any sony phone will be left even the MINT I will be boomed by S3

if it doesn't matter then stop trolling and go buy your anorexic Samsung.

I'd rather have Sony flagship if they get everything right..namely a big battery, s4 processor with adreno 320, 12mp camera and a screen of at least 4.5 inches.
And I hope the "Mint" will fill all those boxes when my contract ends in october.

They are gonna release an S4 in what is probably the same month that the galaxyS3 is released? who thought of that roadmap?? lol.

Sounds nice, but no thanks.

you are in the minority buddy. The vast majority are waiting to see what the SGS3 brings as its going to be a lot more powerful than anything with an S4 chip in it. Cant get mad at us for comparing everything to the "biggest phone" of 2012, the same way people used to compare everything to an iphone. for all comparative purposes, the galaxy series is the "iphone" of the android world... the device which all others are measured against and found wanting.

I think things are about to change (finaly and hopefuly).
More and more manufacturers are closing the gap between Samsungs flagship and theirs.
Sony is just one of them and I talk only in terms of mere specifications and numbers.
Design and beauty is not something you can put on spec sheet.
Think about it and try not to be (or at least try to be less of a) stupid fanboy and another consumer/sheep.

sorry, im not swayed by design. Im swayed by horsepower and a spectacular screen.
Its amazing because I dont share some crazed notion of beauty over horsepower, im a "stupid fanboy". Got some evidence to back that claim up?

lol at hayabusa vs ferrari, thats a good comparison as a ferrari (or samsung) wouldnt stand a chance. sony is a pretty solid company and most if not all their products impress me in every aspect, maybe they can replace my iphone.

That's a lot of new electronics for the NXT series. Looks like Sony is going to release more than what is needed similar to Samsung and the Galaxy brand.

For the months leading up to the Xperia S's release, it seemed to be a great phone, combining both physical aesthetics and powerhouse hardware, but when it actually came, quads were but a month away, making the S seem feeble with it's outdated GPU.

I'm afraid the same thing will happen with the Hayabusa, where un-leaked phones currently in development would just appear and blow sony's flagship out of the water in terms of internal hardware.

As an owner of a GS2...
And waiting like the rest of the world for the GS3 reveal on May 3rd...

One thing that for me, that might just make the difference when my contract runs out at the end of the year...

It's all very well having a quad-core, etc. etc. but ultimately, after having GS1 and GS2, having a GS3 which is a bit bigger, sharper and faster is, well, underwhelming...


What I am intrigued about with Sony is their Smart accessories - i.e. HD headset, watch and even NFC tags... it adds a different element to the mobile experience - something lacking with other manufacturers (I guess HTC have 'Beats Audio' - but no headphones with it)

The only problem is that the Xperia S is so lacking (no expandable memory, etc.) that it's not worth the investment...

Let's hope these two new ones are worthy competition...

I'm happy to wait!
