  1. WTF Sony! Where do I start with what all is wrong with this one! 6.1 inches with 480X854? What on earth are they smoking? Forget the resolution for a while, 6″= is still an extremely niche category, and to limit yourself to that, trying to compete with the Galaxy Mega with a lower price (presumably) is foolhardy IMO.

    What’s wrong with a 5.5″ 720p screen? That cannot possible cost more than a few bucks extra to manufacture!

    As for the SoC, the quad-core MSM 8226 on 1.2 Ghz again rather than 1.6? And to top it all, it’s probably still going to cost more than the Moto G2.

    Fellow muggles, this is a classic example of what not to do if you’re trying to retain reputation, regain market-share and start making money in an ultra competitive industry.
