[deleted post]I tried disabling data usage and wifi.
Just normal usage with messaging and calling even then it drains too faster.
Wifi Direct is missing.
I upgraded expecting wifi direct.
I mailed sony about this issue no reply from them even after three days.
1.5 ghz with dual core But too slow comparing with live walkman.
I feel my money is wasted.
I prefer to roll back to 2.3.7.
Only thing satisfied with ICS is supports tamil font.

I think majority who updated to ICS feel SXS is slower than the previous GB which I agree. I notice especially transition like screen to other screen pane as you can see widgets are opening few seconds. What Sony really did a good job is the ICS for Xperia Arc. My Xperia Arc is so smooth and fast with ICS and I don't see any lag especially those widgets on my Xperia Arc. I just hope Sony would release a firmware update to fix this lag that most of us experience.
[deleted post]dont waste ur time using pc companion, it never worked for me and many others. Just download and install SUS (sonyericsson update service) and follow the instructions (easiest and fastest way). Other method is with flashmode using flashtool (bit complicated than using SUS) Goodluck.
Dart2012, 28 Jun 2012any idea that will sony upgrade xperia S to android 4.1 jelly bean?Well dont expect too much for it,,sony plans to inject the 4.1 os only for the new upcoming xperia's with better core, gpu, ram, and stable firmware .As for now there still loads of issue of ics update. I still got main issue for wifi signal drop and poor wifi receiver after the update.

Today I updated my fone to ics. Its just awesome. But I feel that the socialnetworks like facebook,twitter, and other apps the scrolling speed is slower then before update. Is it just me or anybody else experiencing the same. And I feel that the battery backup is lesser then the.75 firmware update. Need help thanks in advance
does this phone support 3g video calling ? or video calling without 3rd party software
any idea that will sony upgrade xperia S to android 4.1 jelly bean?
Hi. I have tried two different versions of ICS update on my SXS, one was Swiss version and the other one is given for my SI number. I completely agree that ICS has changed SXS almost in every aspect, most of them are positive but few are worst. altogether I'm not happy with ICS. here are the negative things.
1. Screenshot function is missing.
2. eats up battery.
3. eats up RAM like hell. in fact this the most negative part. On GB, i have never seen available RAM going down less than 260 MB. but on ICS, it goes below 150 MB even on standby mode, I dont know what all unwanted applications run in the back ground but it is a serious problem. and this leads to battery drain.
4. Mobile signal and wi-fi signal reception have become poor. I have wi-fi in my home and GB used to get very poor signal in my bed room, but i was still able to browse on my phone without any hick up. unfortunately, ICS does not get that least wi-fi signal in my bed room. and it is the same with mobile network signal.
5. Home screen does not show icons immediately after exiting any application, there is a lag. (This lag was not there in Swiss version)
Though the ICS has got lot of amazing features, unfortunately I have to go back to GB because of the signal reception.
Hmmm..... I have updated my SXS with ICS on the day one when the swiss version was released, I found hell lot of bugs and yesterday I updated with the version given for my SI numbers, both the updates left me with a great disappointment but nothing better than that. I never expected that Sony will simply through some shit like this. here are the problems with ICS for SXS
1. Screenshot function is missing.
2. home screen does not show icons immediately after exiting any application.
3. The major problem... It eats up RAM like hell.
On GB i have never seen available RAM less than 280MB.
But on ICS it pulls available RAM down to 120 MB. Gosh!!! I installed RAM booster and shocked to see hell lot of unwanted background processes running even if you dont use the phone for some time.
Few things have been better like walkman, album, movies... but unfortunately... phone's performance has been completely screwed up.
I'm just going back to GB. the better one.
