"No, the pentile matrix is just a bubble. Unless you don´t look for it you won´t see it. The picture is great, I would never go back to TFT displays."
not true! the pixelation is quite bad on this phone, especially for red and blue colors/fonts. the reason is the pentile matrix, which results in a effective pixel density of only 166dpi. a tft screen like with over 200dpi will look much better.
i have the xperia mini with only 190dpi and the tft screen looks much crisper that the amoled of the s advance (233dpi * 2/3 for pentile).
nevertheless pentile amoled has great contrast, bright and vivid colors, which is amazing. really... but pixelation can be a real turn-off, if resolution is important for you
I bought this ph 1st week of June. infact after 2 months of research and raising my budget by 2k. The ph is amazing. From gorilla glass to crisp screen even in bright sunlight to smooth switching between multiple browser to running multiple apps simultaneously(after opening a app press home button instead of back button). Voice during calls are loud enough to keep the ph slightly away from my ear. The screen is super sensitive so need to adjust as slightest touch is registered.
Now the pain points:
1)runs out of juice fastest
2) just read about zooming software so need to search and install soon.
3) just completing after every call, the ph loses network for say around 10-15 seconds. Not sure if its just my ph problem.
Infact never came across the sound problem as few others have pointed out here.
Overall a satisfied user at this price range. Many do expect much more yet during research I dint find any other ph providing these features at this price.
I plan to buy this phone this weekend. Can someone advice on the GPRS speed?
As per the manual it says 32-48 kbps only whereas sony xperia says upto 100+ kbps speed.
Im really worried about this since most of my usage will be Internet with GPRS (not 3G).
The manual also says "Class 12 (4+1/3+2/2+3/1+4 slots)" Not sure what is this.
Kindly advice please.

joe incinarate, 20 Jul 2012how about the pixelation..is it very bad??No, the pentile matrix is just a bubble. Unless you don´t look for it you won´t see it. The picture is great, I would never go back to TFT displays.

Skyrix, 20 Jul 2012Its better if you buy a Sony Xperia U as compared to this phone. It has a far more crisp and a... morexperia u is a pathetic phone if u compare it with galaxy s advance because it has only 4gb of phone memory and no memory card slot.so you are stuck forever in the low memory issue in it.other wise it is good.
can some1 say if i can plug hdmi or usb-on-the-go to this fone?!?!??! did any1 tried it yet????
trilok, 19 Jul 2012me don't know about smartphons,
but i want to buy....
any budy tell me S ADVANCE is better ... mores 2 is better.. but S advance is value for money.. differences are minute and depends on functionality which is important for you. S2 has 1.2 GHZ Dual core.
S advance has 1 GHz Dual Core. S2 has 8 MP Camera, S Advance has 5 MP Camera. Screen of S2 is 4.3 inches and of S Advance is 4 inches. HD video capacity of S2 is 1080 dpi and of S advance is 720 dpi and there are other minute differences for a price difference of approx. Rs.5000/- S2 is costlier by approx. Rs.5000/- and for Rs.5000/- less S Advance is a real value for money and just as i said earlier depends on functionality for which phone is required by you..
