A good review from gsmarena but some people writting strange comments here on the xperia s forum well they can write what ever they want about the xperia s it really dos nt matter the fact is the Xperia S is a top notch mobile in almost any department no matter what you
doing with the device and the battery life is actually pretty good after three 3 weeks having this device so i have nt hade any problem at all beside that the htc one x have no support for radio and the for this device is very high its just a question if its worth it the only i can say about the Xperia S is that it is worth any single penny here you get a lot for you money

Now to the subject, if you take out the sound and camera quality N8 is old, outdated and awfully old.

Did you notice that you can create shortcuts to your favorite albums/tracks/playlists in the my music tab of the music player? Just long press on an album and select add as shortcut

Look. Let's make things clear. Sony is the best company ever in this Universe. Absolutely no one beats Sony. Sony is God's company of products. Sony beats the $*** out of cheap Nokia or Samsung phones!!!

Xperia guys u r wasting ur time fighting those n8 freekz.
I mean cum on...u r buying a phone not a chamera...and u living zombies of symbian fans think u can beat 'THE ANDROID'
this platform even changed the life of duying samsung with its own power or else SAMSUNG is dead...
n8 can't even do 20% of what XPERIA S do
Please try to accept & respect the new innovations,otherwise u wil get backdated urself,
There was also a time n8 played its game,now please
