Web browsing speed has also improved as well as the camera. yes, S4 processor is faster than S3 but is hardly noticeable in real life.People should compare Xperia S running ICS 4.0.4 latest firmware version with other phones rather than comparing it while it is still on Gingerbread 2.3.7 while others phones being compared are all running ICS 4.0.4.

You should update to Ics 4.0.4 immediately. After you updats to the latest ICS 4.0.4 version 6.1.A.2.45. which was out recently, all the above problem will be gone. I have update mine and the 3 buttons at the bottons are very responsive now. Battery life is also good, it last more than a day under normal use. Camera has been improved. Try it and you will see the difference.
cplover23, 07 Sep 2012i dont know what these guys are talking, do you even have this phone? have you ever tried it? ... moreI just wondering, why people always compare to S3? Why not HTC One X, or One S? Because S3 is THE MOST POPULAR SMARTPHONE TODAY! Not saying that it's perfect, but it's near-perfect. We can do a dogfight if you want. Browsing in Xperia S is definitely laggy, scrolling isn't smooth. Right? Be honest to yourself. S3 is almost lag-free, had that phone about 2 month only saw 3 or 4 lags from all time (I used the browser quiet often though). This phone is laggy when you run in the homemscreen right? especially when there's a live wallpaper glowing behind. S3 bested the dual-core Snapdragon S4 which is about 2 or 3 times faster than Snapdragon S3, so don't speak about that. Now screen, honestly, I own the Xperia Arc. I really love that display, although I like the GS3 more because it's sharper. But Xperia S is different. I really love the display, I like it more than the S3 (except for the viewing angle). S3 has a terrible outdoor visibility (GSMArena, you're wrong), while Xperia S is actually one of the best. But screen wise, I still think One X is the best. Camera, not to say this is bad by any means but, actually, besides the megapixels, the GS3 bested this in most thing. I write this, as fair as I can, just keep that in your mind. I like Samsung, I like Sony, I like Nokia, I hate Apple, so you know I don't hate this brand.

Been 2 weeks with this phone.my dislikes are the 3 microscopic buttons at the bottom,i need a magnify glass to see them and they dont always respond.the camera doesn't seem like 12 mp.the battery is inbuilt.the screen goes black and locks when I dial a number so I can't hang up .the battery is very weak like everyone says.apart from my dislikes it's just another android phone..can't really brag about it.
i dont know what these guys are talking, do you even have this phone? have you ever tried it?
i have xperia s and i find it really good! though focus on camera during low light is hard but i found a solution to that problem and now i cant complain about this phone..this is awesome i have an s2 and sensation e before but this truly stand out among all. the screen is also brilliant compared to amoled screens and i had a comparison of this over my uncles s3 and find this more premium and more elegant than the s3 and the screen of the s3 is good and sharp but colors are sharper and more realistic on the xperia s, also s3 is too big. performance wise the s3 is faster when browsing but just a few seconds faster and for me thats not a big deal.soon enough xperia s will be like nexus ang i bet s3 fanboys will be jealous when xperia s got the latest software first... kudos to sony! sony is the only company who updates phones unlike samsung who release too many phones and support just few of it..
symbian fan, 07 Sep 2012Guys how can screen shoot on xperia s ! With ICS update it was like this
Press the Power button and Volume Down key button together and wait 1-3 seconds. Screenshots will be captured. All the screenshots are saved in SD card in following location - Pictures\Screenshots.
What a big piece of junk this phone is . When i dial a number the phone locks itself and doesnt unlock untill the person im dialing answers or my call goes to message bank ..

Android applications run in a sandbox, an isolated area of the operating system that does not have access to the rest of the system's resources, unless access permissions are granted by the user when the application is installed. Before installing an application, the Play Store displays all required permissions. A game may need to enable vibration, for example, but should not need to read messages or access the phonebook. After reviewing these permissions, the user can decide whether to install the application. The sandboxing and permissions system weakens the impact of vulnerabilities and bugs in applications, but developer confusion and limited documentation has resulted in applications routinely requesting unnecessary permissions, reducing its effectiveness. The complexity of inter-application communication implies Android may have opportunities to run unauthorized code. ( love droid)

I will take a wild guess and say the 1st one, because even though Apple has been admitting exactly the opposite of that half way around the globe, I guess the almighty minds of some Americans who cannot even make a coherent sentence (they punished more the phones which they ruled as not infringing than the ones which they said were infringing) must be the beacon of enlightenment for future generations.
Thinus, 06 Sep 2012I want to upgrade to the Sony Experia S? Do you guys recommend it? Or what would be suggested? i recommend
Samsung fanboy, 06 Sep 2012If u want future. If u want best . if u want beast ..go for s3 Samsung will have no future after losing the court case to Apple. They have a tough time trying to recover the 1 billion dollar compensation. Their GS3 may be banned from selling as well. What do u think their future will be. My advice will be to switch OEM, do not stick with Samsung anymore.
