Oppa Sony Style...
The best mobile phone brand died with Sony Ericsson's death. Shame on you Sony for killing it! And, of course, for ruining the Xperia brand...

Laughing on Sony when your beloved Samsung hasn't fixed S3/Note 2 lockscreen yet

Typical Samsung fanboy behavior

samsung was never even brought up on this thread... this is more of an FYI on sony phones' bugs/glitches.

kinda annoying to see another sony vs sammy "warzone".

can't we all just get along?

All positives and negatives will be compared to their respective competition. That's why Samsung can and should be compared here. I found it as strange as randomuser did when people having a good laugh over this find the same issue in their 'infallible' and 'superior' gadgets. We are not here to have a war. But we can't hold hands either as long as the hypocrisy remains.

@ the pro-Sony / anti-Samsung sub-human species: the point you're missing is, nobody mentioned anything about Samsung or any other company for that matter and you bulldozed your way in to defend Sony and slag off Samsung.

Are you really that sad ?

Seriously, are you really ??
