KF, 31 Mar 2012really?? the N8 despite being about 2yo, it still beats the S with or without the xenon. OH an... moreLol!You are such a great fanatic of a company who is losing ground,Mr.Elop should recruit you as their P.R.O...Even their great PURE VIEW 808 will unleashes it so called 41 Mp with Carla(gay's name)OS,it is still the dying OS,I rather buy a Canon camera..By the way,i use HTC Radar....:))Chao!
N8 is still better in still pictures and videos although the 1080p.
great design and quality, this is the right way. testing before commenting ..
Sony is going from bad to worse.
The Xperia S design is the EXACT COPY of HTC TOUCH DIAMOND 2.
Guys, check this out...
EXACTLY THE SAME DESIGN. CTRL C + CTRL V.
SONY, WHAT A SHAME!!!
go wash your stupid brains: even nokia 808 with carla is a fart-sniffer old junk android compared with this sony.fans of symbian are like the fans of vw: they think that from old farty vw beetle, vw still remains a good brand, no matter what they do, anything can't compare with vw. this is the type of stupid thinking
Apple pie, 31 Mar 2012hey!!!hold on there Can you tell me where are iphones,samasung phones, nokia phones, htc phon... moreNokia also make them in EU if you don't mind. Samsung make them in their native Korea. But Apple, Sony: never. They stay loyal to China... :DDD And that's the answer to the most disturbing question lurking in your mind: "Why don't I have money, why don't I have job?" Get it? Some small chinese boy steals them from you.
O'rly , 31 Mar 2012Oh please, do you even know how cores work? having an extra cores are only useful when your ca... moreLast year when samsung, htc and lg came up with dual core phones what sony said is that a smartphone doesnt need a dual core processor and the year results an utter failure for sony ericsson xperia series.
Now the big boys come with quad core cpu, sony introduced their dual core and now saying dual core is enough for a smart phone. We cannot trust this brand anymore.
I was a big fan of sonyericsson when they introduced cyber shot series and walkman series in the past.
But with xperia series I'm very dissapointed. Low RAM, delay in software updates, bugs, frequent force close, poor loudspeaker performance(except Xperia S) and outdated hardware.
Sony is now on the verge. Guys, you have to move on.
r41n, 31 Mar 2012Most of loss of sony is because of japan earthquake, thailand flood, and psn hack. Sony's decline in sales started in 2008 and in 2010 sales declined dramatically and in 2011 it shows losses.
I have the Xperia S. When plugged into my 2 year old Panasonic plasma TV via the microHDMI cable, I can control the phone using the TV's remote control. This functionality isn't limited only to Sony Bravia TVs. The Xperia S probably uses CEC which is part of the HDMI spec. CEC allows HDMI devices to control each other. So any HDMI TV set that implements CEC should work with this Xperia S feature.
theaffidavit, 31 Mar 2012That is pure fanboy comment. Processor - 600 Mhz ARM 11 Vs Dual-Core 1.5 Ghz GPU - Broadco... moreMissed the super fast camera in xperia S,while it takes about 5-6 seconds in N8.

Processor - 600 Mhz ARM 11 Vs Dual-Core 1.5 Ghz
GPU - Broadco... moreok ok spec-wise, the brand new xperia s is the clear winner (except maybe the GPU since I dont believe the Adeno 220 is better than the Broadcom inside the N8), but feature-wise, the N8 has some missing feature in the S such as FM-transmitter, USB OTG etc..
Don't get me wrong, its a very solid phone from Sony, if android is my choice I would choose this over any plastic brick from Samsung or the overrated One X.
booy, 31 Mar 2012geez your N8 doesnt even have an exmor R sensor, Nuff said, brotha
KF, 31 Mar 2012really?? the N8 despite being about 2yo, it still beats the S with or without the xenon. OH an... moreThat is pure fanboy comment.
Processor - 600 Mhz ARM 11 Vs Dual-Core 1.5 Ghz
GPU - Broadcom BCM2727 Vs Adreno 220
Sensors - No Gyro for N8.
RAM - 256 MB Vs 1 GB (U can open lots of tabs and also open lot of apps at background).
Screen - SD Vs HD.
720P Vs 1080P Video capture.
Xperia S GPU and processor can handle apps very good , Even in Ads N8 lagged and can't run even apps which run smoothly on iPhone 3GS with almost same specs head to head except camera and TV-out.
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2012"N8 is still the best camera phone (until pureview 808 starts rolling out)...the xperia s... morereally?? the N8 despite being about 2yo, it still beats the S with or without the xenon. OH and everything on your XPERIA S can be found on the N8 (and even every other sym^3 phone) except the number of apps.
