What else can you expect!

On its own, this device is a delight to use.
The 4.3 inch AMOLED display with 256 ppi is crystal clear and crisp. Its not HD, but it becomes evident ONLY IF I compare it to my larger Xperia Z. On its own, screen is clear, colors vivid, bright in sunlight. But its a 16:9 aspect screen so its a bit narrow and will need getting used to while typing (4.5/5)
Device is super smooth and responsive. The 1.5 GB ram is more than enough and dual core vs quad core is only for gamers. On this device, gaming is not going to be a delight due to small screen, but performance will not show any lag whatsoever, be it gaming or running games (5/5)
Call quality, network reception is excellent as expected (5/5).
Front and Back camera quality is also excellent, more so in bright light. Dim light performance is a bit poor (3.5/5)
Its dual Sim, so great advantage, especially for my use. (5/5)
Battery life lasts easily throughout the day with still 20-30% left with moderate gaming, calling, browsing and video playback. (4/5)
Internal memory is low (8GB-5GB usable) but not a deal breaker for me as it is expandable (3.5/5).
What else can you expect! Yes, there are phones in & around this range with some better features (specially the S3, Nexus4) but none of them have the dual sim capability. Also, I prefer this 4.3 inch size rather than the phablets. So its ultimately a matter of personal choice!
