No need to justify all costs. AJ could slot to put the memory card - toga and many would have bought this phone as well - many refused to buy it because of the restrictions, which could not be - artificially created for marketing purposes.

Rep: (54)

I agree, there is little memory. However, everything is subjective. For someone, the image component will exceed. For me personally, this phone is not suitable, but 4 GB for personal use would be enough for me. You do not download videos, you will watch movies on this screen - dubious pleasure. There is a player for music. As an option - a headset with a memory card that Sony has announced. 4 GB for documents, pictures and other things. There are 50 GB on Box cloud memory. It can be rejected for such a price. Smartphone is very good. But this is all, of course, ways to solve objective disadvantage - low memory.
