Money well invested!!

Was having doubts while purchasing this phone but somewhere in my mind i was sure that my 16K will not be wasted. And after testing the phone thoroughly for 20 days, I m happy that I invested my valuable 16K in this piece of art.
Without much ado, i will now directly jump to

Words fall short on how to describe the AMAZING-NESS of this Wonderful Phone :)

I dont why this hoopla is being created around the 4GB of memory provided for user storage.
See as simple as that, its not for those high-ended people who like to keep tons of data on their fone for which they are crying foul over the less storage.
I personally find 4 gb more than enough for my file storage on top of it Sony provides additional 2Gb sorage for applictaions, which, in other fones is around 170-200MB approx.
So, guys other than that "alleged" flaw there's nothing bad in this fon...

Please Go through this review before writing a review.. :D

I will start with the main point everyone is mentioning.
NO EXPANDABLE STORAGE!
But before you deduct 1 or more stars for this, know about its OTG (On The Go) feature.
You can connect any pendrive of any size to it just via a small cable. This indirectly means you are adding external storage.
This also means due to less data actually stored on phone & all your heavy data outside on a pendrive, the phone will process even faster & smoother.
A pendrive weighs like what 20gms?

& 4GB is like a b...

This has a removable Battery!

@Yuvananda Praveen I must tell you, you are one of those people who are blinded by rumors and space issues. First thing, it doesnt have an embedded battery, it is user removable. Then the 4GB problem. No one, and I mean No one will store 10HD videos. And one more thing, 5-6mins of HD videos dont have 300mb. Movies, 3hr movies, that are HD, come upto a size of just over 890mb. Dont say things you dont know about. Also the 1300mAH battery is enough as, people who know the technical aspects of a...

Fixed internal memory is not a bad feature at all

Don't have much to say about many other things, but to those of you who are complaining about fixed internal memory, let me tell you that it IS beneficial.

The MicroSD cards that are used in the phones, come in 3 classes (wikipedia it) and normally the ones which are sold in the market for phones or are supplied in the pack are the ones with least speed.

An internal memory, on the other hand, increases the speed, lowers the amount of effort that processor needs to make to access a removable...
