    The HSPA+ and LTE frequencies listed seem to be wrong.

    AT&T: HSPA+ only, no LTE
    T-Mobile: No HSPA+, LTE only

    @_@?

    • Keith

      T-Mobile has 1900 HSPA+ and AT&T has band 4 LTE or AWS.

      For this phone, UMTS HSPA+ 850, 900, 1900, 2100, MHzGSM/GPRS/EDGE 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHzLTE Band I, Band II, Band IV and Band V

        T-Mobile has some 1900 HSPA+ but not nation-wide yet. Only if your area has been refarmed.

        • Keith

          True, only in about 49 cities so far.

          • Ben

            To be fair, it covers a ton of the population. Unfortunately the nearest refarmed area for me is 3 hours either north or south; I’m exactly half way between St. Louis and Chicago.

          • Keith

            Yeah, somewhere around 150 million people? I’m in Seattle but the building penetration isn’t that great and I’m on the first floor of an apartment.

    Could someone please let Sony know that more than half of the US is on CDMA network? kthxbai

    CPU/ Processor : 1.7 GHz Qualcomm MSM8960 Pro Dual Core*** Not a quad core

  • Jacob Serna

    Interesting phone though, I might have considered it had it not been for the HTC One. Only 8gb of internal storage is hard to stomach though even with the inclusion of a micro sd slot.

  • Ben

    The Sony store says MSM8960 Pro (I assume MSM8960T) dual core, basically the same as US SGS3, One S, One X, etc. Also the radio bands exclude AWS so if you don’t live in an area where T-Mobile has refarmed their PCS spectrum, no 3G on their network. Looks like a nice, relatively cheap LTE phone for AT&T. If you can do without LTE, a Nexus 4 might be a better option tho.
