    Lets not forget that Sony phones come with all sorts of bells and whistles in all their phones. Playstation mobile, connectivity to Playstation controllers and future compatability to ps4 games. Not to mention FIX (Facebook Inside Xperia) which is the single best facebook integration around (according to Tech Radar).
    Also the durability factors are really important for me, especially the water proofing.
