    Its MRP is Rs20490/-, once it’s available everywhere it will sell for like 18-19k or even less…

    These days phones on preorder before launch in market get no discounts!

    This atleast isn’t a rebranded phone! coz chinese phones don’t come with onscreen buttons and such form factor n build quality!

    Anyways mediatek quadcore is way better than broadcomm dualcore! So this phones main competition galaxy grand is taken care of…
    Only problem on this phone is 4gb internal…

    But I believe Sony will this year launch a move apps to sd card update and fix this issue!!!

    At 20+ grands, most will prolly opt for the Xperia SP or the Galaxy SIII. Priced at 15-16K, this would have knocked the stuffing out of the Canvas 4, Titanium S9, Pinnacle FHD etc. not to mention the bewilderingly low specced Galaxy Grand Quattro!

    Mediatek quadcore proved to be faster than Samsung’s Broadcom dual core. Sony also has better 2390 mAh battery which is not mentioned here. 720p and 1080p screens are just marketing gimmicks, please don’t fall for them. Hi-res screens drain the battery much quicker. Only the 4 point multi touch in this is worrying! Let’s wait and watch how it performs!

      firstly it has a 5 point multi touch! secondly, do u use so many fingers on a phone together? Coz I am a techsavvy geek who is a very hardcore user yet I havent used more than 4 fingers on the screen. I have had many fingers on the screen but inly used 3max while even gaming….

      Rest of your facts remain true though(about battery n prosscr)!!!

    disappointed ! only thing distinguishing this from other made in china, rebranded in India phones is the extra 4000 in price and “sony” tag . what were they thinking ?
    come on sony . . . start an exchange offer and give 7000 discount on this after a month !

    ok so the phone is 960 x 540 Pixels and has a TFT screen.
    Not worth the price

    Seems to be expensive when compared to Galaxy Grand as Grand has 8GB internal Memory as compared with 4GB in this one and also Grand is now available at 17.5K approx. The only better thing is this has quad core and grand has dual core.
