  • Sony is thinking we are fool(which I am) while in Pakistan we have QMobile Z12 with Better RAM and Better Internal Storage And Low in Budget
    :D

  • lol MediaTek MT6735 for 24k with only 1.5gb ram? even infinix note 2(costs 16k) have better specs MediaTek MT6753 with 2gb ram. 24k is not even the local price. It should have been priced between 14-18k.

  • Sony is class of its own. Good quality hardware and perfectly optimize software.
    The good thing is the quick android update.

      • You mean to say, Sony’s display quality is equal to qmobile’s display, sony’s cam quality is equal to qmobile’s cam quality, sony’s build quality is equal to qmobile’s build quality. Sony’s R&D quality is equal to qmobile’s R&D quality ?
        You just enjoy your “q” here is nothing for “u” .

      • Bhai Sony is excellent in software stability and updates which matter most of the users. And also Sony is great at other general hardware.

      • Hardware main build quality, screen quality,speakers etc bhi atay hain.
        Sony ka software bohut stable hai aur tez. Infinix ki unoptimised UI kabhi muqable nahi kar sakti Sony ka, 3GB RAM k sath bhi nahi.
        Aur updates to daitay hain an Sony walay. Samsung aur Infinix ki tarha to nahi k phone bech diya phir bhool gaye.

            • Both my Note 2 and Hot 2 got the marshmallow update three days after I got the phone. And don’t know what unoptimized UI you are talking about either. I would take it any day over the fugly, bloated Xperia skin. I had an Xperia T and i remember navigating on it seemed like wading through mud.

              • Hot 2 was released 7 months ago in Pakistan and is an Android One device in Africa not so not giving updates would have been unjustified. I’m talking about the original hot.
                With the battery size some Infinix Phones have they should last much longer. It’s because of the unoptimised UI.
                Xperia T was ages ago (2012) and was a product from the Sony Ericsson pipeline. Sony revamped the UI in KK which was the most stable and long lasting KK amongst all phones. Since LP they went for a minimalistic approach. Marshmallow is nearly stock. They are testing stock Android based UI since mid last year. Sony has come a long way in reducing/removing the cluttered UI. Comes second to Motorola’s simplistic UI.

  • its a good phone on paper but why so frugal on the ram ?!

    also , at THIS price , a fingerprint scanner is a MUST !

    • MediaTek ka kui qasoor nahi hai. Unoptimised OS ho ga to kharab chalay ga. Sony k sab phone jin main Mediatek hai, un ki battery timings Snapdragons sai behter rahi hain pichlay saal.

    • To be honest, I’m always crying for low battery on my snapdragon based lg g3, whereas my mediatek powered note 2 easily lasts me an entire day of heavy usage, and then taking only half an hour to juice back up.
