The Rant

After reading the flagship specifications do you think the price tag seems justified? A wooping 50000 for the phone that has mediocre specs. I don’t know what Sony was thinking while making this device. But in my opinion this has to be the flagship with a budget phone’s specifications. Heck, I don’t even feel like calling it a flagship! What are your thoughts on the latest smartphone offerings by Sony?
