If it had an dual-core Krait i could buy this, instead of SGS3. But I am dreaming of phone with ~4-4.3" HD screen within more compact size than this.

seems liek a lot of articles about Sony phones fail to provide any mention of the availability of ExmorR sensors.
Tell us which phones have ExmorR sensors. It's really important for most people to take shots in any kind of ambient light.

No improvement, unless it comes with MSM8260A ( Snapdragon S4) processor. Otherwise its just same as HTC One S Asian Version. :P If this is the config, then I ll surely move to Sony Hyabusa!! No need of Xperia SL!! Unnecessary Job Sony!! This wont increase the sales!!

very beautiful and elegant! Sony have really good designs that can even make the Iphone jelly.
the only thing that could look better than that is a pink n9... but not the lumia (it is a cheap copy)

IPhone design same for years and same for Samsung. They even keep galaxy s without even tiniest different design.

Xperia go, acro s, ion s, gx and sx is having totally different design. Ur bias make all the different.

Why all the wasted space below the keys, it has a smaller screen but is almost as big as, and feels bigger than, S3!

Based on the same chipset but the real life user experience of Xperia S is so far against that phone. Boils down to optimizations, eh?

... it's terrible really... because all Sony are doing here is p1ssing off existing Xperia S users - by releasing a better version 6 months later..

...worse though... the specs are horribly muted in comparisons to the big boys (Sammy, HTC, etc.)

...they need to catch up.. AND FAST...

..just think how how outdated this phone will be in September when GNote2 and new Nexus phones come out.. as well as new iPhone...

..and then again in March 2013 - where there will be improved quad cores and this is rocking an overclocked, dated dual core with no prospect of future software upgrades...

...remember... people typically have a new handset for 18 months now... and this is 2011 specs coming out at the end of 2012...

...not good...
