I guess that helps, comparing the difference in prices, SXS is only a bit expensive but has better specs than SXP only SXP has white magic technology. How about the battery life, how long does it last with heavy usage? Thanks again.
Nick, 23 Aug 2012After updating to ICS my phone battery last for only 7 hours with simple use.Battery is draini... moreI had similar issues. They were solved after resetting the battery (press volume up and power button at the same time until the phone vibrates 3 times - about 15-20 seconds).
I am an Xperia U user, but to all those who are complaining about steep battery drain after upgrade to ICS, here's a solution:
I had the same issue in my U running Gingerbread...After research for a day, I found out that Google Play Store would startup automatically during standby/sleep mode and drain all the battery...Now every time I Force Stop it when not in use...In your case it can be any app which drains the battery...So Force Stop it manually when not in use...
Note:The app which eats all this battery in sleep mode is not actually shown in Battery Use...
Has anyone here has problems charging the phone? I mean, today it had 37% of battery I starts to charge it like 19:15 I watched a movie in my computer I spend like 2h:30m watching the movie and when I saw the phone charging it was 55%, just 18% of charge in 2h:30m? I think it takes too much time to charge
eipaul, 24 Aug 2012Thanks! By the way, where did you bought your XP? Is display of xperia S better than xperia P?... moreI was suppose to buy xperia P but i bought xperia S instead (after reading forums and comparing specs). I bought my SXS at Super Market somewhere in north edsa. I've heard about the display issue of SXS (the yellowish tint display) but mine's none. I've heard that defect occurs on the 1st release of sony's xperia S handsets. And later on was fixed by sony. Since the SXS was released in Phil a bit late (compared to US) i presume SXS in the Phil don't have display issues. My SXS is 1month old and doesnt encounter any problem so far im happy with my SXS.

If you have budget go for xperia S. Its a lot better than P when it comes to memory capacity, battery life, and speed performance.
