Unannounced Sony Xperia F833X being sold in Croatia

It isn't unusual to see an almost endless supply of prototypes getting leaked over the Internet, and Sony is no exception.

What is, unusual, however, is a prototype, or a test model, being sold weeks, maybe even months, before the real deal goes out the door.

I still use Vue and still enjoy it, but as with all things in life, there are some aspects I'm not terribly fond of and they tend to surface over time. That's not to say any of them are deal breakers, not personally, anyway.
