Bought this from from the USA & using it in India. I don't think the official update of the ICS has come. Any idea when its coming? Secondly, how otherwise do I update it to ICS. I don't want to wait much. Thanks!
how to screen capture..upgraded it to ICS.. then i cnt screen capture anymore..help..thanks..
i am using this phone since last 3 months and did'nt had any kind of problem except the camera as i've also used arc and according to me arc had a better camera....someone commented that the quality of the camera can be improved by many apps that do not compress the clicked image... can anyone please tell me the name of those apps as i love clicking photos.
i'll be really very thankful
Bought this phone, for me its fast enough nothing to complain about that
-the camera is mediocre can't believe its a 12mp
-the screen is great so colorful and lively
-battery this is where I get nervous it drains kinda fast even in moderate internet browsing, no games and calls I think the reason was the screen's visual performance.
-sounds its loud enough for me
-the capacitive keys I find them unresponsive from time to time.
Overall my comment seem to be more on the negative side but I would still recommend buying this phone and I still love mine, its stylish, performance wise and the best of all its Sony, reasons not to buy... well there are definitely more better features that Sony can't offer upto date, the battery lacks juice and for an avid file/app person think if 32gb is enough for you, no more no less.
Arun, i think you are using cheapest headphones to your sxs , so please use brand earphones or sony headphones too , you can feel better than previous , Technology wise i feel comfortable than previuos phone(Neo V),especially Clear Bass,Clear sound, Clear Stereo , you should compare with other brand phones using same headphones ,
Guys . If you are from India , you can buy sony xperia s in 25400 inr . From timtara dot com (using coupon code given on website).. But the only issue is they will ship after two weeks . So if you have time,you can buy it from there . 25400rs is unbelievable price isn't it .Thankyou.
best phone out there, for sony fanatics they know thats y they dont buy anything less than sony!!!
ash 62, 15 Aug 2012Then do u have any idea of how to download games from play store without using credit or debit... moreDude unfortunately Vodafone Mumbai doesnt support service provider billing hence has to be on credit cards.....for asphalt7 it keeps verifing liscence before u can play and when you do that best to be on WIFI or 3G as GPRS speeds so slow that it wont allow the DRM liscence verification to happen fast enough for the game to start.
Arun, 14 Aug 2012Hi All,
I bought this mobile from Sony showroom Bangalore.
Here are the thing... moreLOL Arun, you should be a comic writer..
Here are your points opposed :-
1. I bought the phone on 13th july and upgraded it to ICS on 15th !!
2. Which samsung phones are you comparing ?? S2 ?? Hell its faster than s2, my brother has s2 and i have used it more than you imagined.
3. Camera is the best !! It performs poor in low light that i would agree but its already written on most sites so SEE it before buying, instead of moaning after buying. Use camera apps and it gets better :)
4.Worst audio output !! what were you hearing from before ?? Something out of the earth i suppose :P
5. Touch buttons just take time getting used to, i am using since a month and i dont even have to hit it for a second time even if i use it at midnight !! Take it easy bro !!
6. Micro sim has better reception if you dont know plus they are not gonna charge you millions for a micro SiM !!!
7. I never bleed to death by the CORNERS of this phone :P
And as someone said.. SELL IT.. go to your Samsung which has the WORLD BEST SOUND, WORLDS BEST CAMERA, HAS SMOOTH CORNERS, HAS BETTER RESPONSIVE BUTTONS, AND LIGHTNING FAST.. Enjoy !!
shrikant, 14 Aug 2012all the mobiles companies who so ever using Android OS are cheating with the customers all ove... moreyes, this is really disgusting . many android phones may have fantastic features,but they have poor battery back up . I am also a victim of it . this is really a crime . every mobile company should keep this point in view.
i bought this half a month first i was quite impress with this phone then various problem arise with this phone.
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2012Said a Samsung lover. Did you haar the low quality audio from SGS3 Right there, he must be a samsung lover abusing SONY's hard work
Arun, 14 Aug 2012Hi All,
I bought this mobile from Sony showroom Bangalore.
Here are the thing... moreYa kiddin, SXS has best audio capabilities under the smartphone market. 'BEST' mark my words.
'audio quality is worst i've experienced' JACK plz.
Supplied headphones are always poor for phones especially to reduce their cost n also i dont felt here any need to supply expensive in ears as most users (music lovers) have their own. Take me, i have SONY XBA-3 headphones.
SXS provides pretty decent soundstage while managing mids and highs separation (at an entry level mp3 level).
BASS feels very deep that completely fills ur ears n wud make u do head banging. Some distortion kicks in making BASS li'l lower at higher volume, not much though. If someone abuses its audio quality then i suppose he is comparing a PHONE to high end WALKMAN or COWON.
I wont say this will make u throw your high range DMP's but yeah its a good thing as (what u call) all in one device. Its audio quality is undoubtedly better than my SONY e373 Walkman, this is what i can say for comparison of its audio output.
As far as its camera goes, be satisfied from what one of the best smartphone offers ya. Hey, it haven't got Xenon flash, what did u expected (a professional cam lol).
Let me tell u a pro camera has a bigger radius lens that allows more light to come in making pics more detailed reducing blurs.
If its the shape that mocks u then ok its ur opinion. I think its the most beautiful handset i've ever seen.
U said 'do not buy it'
I say 'u haven't bought it'
a new Dark silver edition already came out by Sony. See the news,
Reuel, 12 Aug 2012lol I thaught ash sounded like da short form for ashwin or somethin any ways didnt mean to off... moreThen do u have any idea of how to download games from play store without using credit or debit card. I wish there an option to buy games by phone monthly bill like we have in playnow.
(I really didnt wanted to do that at all but just for having a taste of what android games are) i downloaded shadowgun and asphalt 7 for FREE .
Got lucky there that shadowgun is installed.
Shadowgun is doin great while asphalt 7 setup says 'unstable connection' every time i try to install it. I tried downloading asphalt 7 from torrent but they say i gotta root my phone. Like hell im gonna do that. Shadowgun is really a new experience for me (n im addicted 2 it) but the point is how should i buy games then. Any suggestions please?
