Final Thoughts!

Whilst it offers nothing special when compared to the plethora of new smartphones being released on an almost daily basis, it does have the looks and build quality to be able to compete and catch the eye of any potential suitor. But will this be enough? It all depends on how much TV airtime the handset receives and whether Sony truly pushes this handset to the midrange purchasers its aimed at.
