Omg... if you look at samsung and htc line up also will have same 4shape design and curve. The phone look alike due to same home screen and thames. Not by design. Have you hold and look all sony line up in 360 eyes angels?

Is this the only form-factor/design Sony can handle?

Look: http://www.gsmarena.com/sony-phones-7.php

30 phone models and all look like this. Come oooon!

... plus in real-world usage you won't notice a difference between 1.5 and 1.7GHz (just as you won't notice a difference between dual and quad core either).

What is the point? It's identical except for the colour. Install a custom kernel if you want to overclock Xperia S.

Note to all....If you are thinking of getting this phone, DON'T. My reason, I have had the blue variant for a month, bought on 3 July to be precise. Without dropping it or any irresponsible behaviour on my part, accidental or otherwise, I noticed a hairline crack at the bottom of the phone around where the usb charger is located.

Popped into carphonewarehouse, they wanted to charge £169.99 to send it back to Samsung, their system would not allow them to send it back other than as customer damage or cosmetic damage which would incur the charge. Naturally, I said NO, I would send it back myself as it is clearly a manufacturing fault, left them an internet article which claimed Samsung was aware and were investigating the issue.

Just spoke to Samsung who stated it is not a warranty issue and to take it one of their Service Centres! A long argument later by which time I thought I was talking to robot and me venting about the appalling service etc. I decided I would but the likelyhood is that I will sell this as a B Grade used phone to CEX, take a loss and NEVER EVER buy a Samsung product EVER AGAIN. Not sure I can attach a pic on here but feel free to google "Samsung Galaxy S3 cracked case problems".

THIS IS AN ADVISORY, IF YOU HAVE ANY SENSE STAY AWAY FROM THIS HANDSET AND SAVE YOUR MONEY. Shocking for a so called premium handset. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!

Finally! The xperia s without the unjustified big size because of the useless capasitive dots! I hope they improve the screen too (if it lacks at all) so that i buy it for sure.

Wow!!! A whoooooping overclock upgrade of the crappy MSM8260 of the XS. Plus it looks stunningly beautiful like a brick that has a rectangular cap attached at the bottom. Can't wait for it to be released and not give a single f* about it!
