This looked very nice from the pictures, but man is it another huge clunker! 10 years ago we laughed at people who carried around their huge "phone booths". Today, it seems everyone wants their phone to be as huge as possible. Good luck finding a useable model with less than a 4" screen. What good is a phone I can't fit in my pocket? Not to mention that these huge-ass displays and ridiculously useless processors drain energy like hell, and you're lucky if it lasts a day at work. I won't settle for less than a week's normal use out of one battery charge. It's time manufacturers get their act together and start making phones that do what they're supposed to again.

Hi - Will there be updated reivew once ICS is released for the device? I think it has been released now.

I'm struggling to decide between HTC One S and this one. I have a Nokia C7, and I haven't used the NFC for a long time so thats not so important.

I saw the Galaxy S 3 - pretty amazing.

I really do question while they printed distorted, inaccurate and misleading information and have since made no effort to rectify it.

Lets hope we get an update to this review with more professional test methods and analysis of the display.

The current review is not very helpful for me as the flaws in it are blatant and the analysis very poor. How can you conclude that a phone turned to a level of being 50% brighter than another phone shows poorer blacks. It's like saying that a red car has worse braking than a blue car from a test done while driving the red car 50% faster.

Widen up your view people. Go read multiple reviews. Bashing simply because you only follow 1 P.O.V really sounds like rigid-minded extremist.

Other professional reviews rant more on GB-not-ICS out of the box, but praise the display and average battery life "from their 1 week use of the phone as their daily driver".

gsmarena... what have you turned you readers into? :P

Hmmm... Now I can see why I prefer real-life-feel review from "The Verge". But I still love gsmarena for the more detailed technical review.
Best tech info + best real life opinion = Almost perfect picture of the device :D

Anyway already bought my Xperia S. 1day+ battery life with my light browsing/gaming/chatting. I guess not being in the social network bandwagon saves me a lot of time, money, trouble, and unnecessary anxiety/need to check+update status. :P

Internet really has turn people to attention-poor skimmers who know everything but nothing... LoL

this review is a screen and battery nightmare. Can gsmarena please retest and analyse where needed
