@papa. Yeah, using the Phone Companion was a bit of a pain. But after trying 3 or 4 times, we had a look at the tutorial, you have to plug the phone exactly like they tell you. Very weird way though.
Im using SONY Xperia S nd Galaxy S2..So i can say that SONY Xperia S is better than Galaxy s2..The main difference is the display and camera..The Bravia engine is better and superior than the Super AMOLED Plus on Galaxy S2..

jacky, 12 Jun 2012Does it support divx,xvid or flvyes install qq player,rocket player,etc
I made a small calculation mistake in my earlier post. Apologies for the same.
At the current consumption rate, a fully charged battery would last me about 83 hours, under standard usage as demonstrated.
83 hours ain't anywhere close to 120 hours (which would be stellar!!), but is very good in itself.
I have been hearing a lot about the bad battery performance of this phone. I personally am used to hooking up my phones with a charger every 12 hours or so, hence never really had much issues. But given that I like pretty much everything else about this I thought I will run this phone through its paces and see how true or otherwise those 'low battery' rants are.
- I have been using this phone for just about 28 days now
Timestamp : 11-June-2012, 9:45pm
- Charged it to 100% using the charger and cable provided in the box
- Put display in auto-brightness mode
- Disabled the Bravia engine (switched it on again for watching movies, but later)
- Switched off Wi-Fi and data
- Set Network mode to WCDMA(preferred)/GSM
- I use Llama to manage my profiles: Vibrate only when at work between 9am-5pm and at home between 11pm-6am. Loud when outdoors. Normal at other times.
Usage till now:
- Phone calls - about 108 minutes by now. Missed calls 14.
- Texts - 76 texts exchanged
- Music - Listened to songs for about 18 mins
- Video - Watched 2 videos - Total duration 8 minutes 43 seconds (switched on Bravia engine during video)
- Radio - 4 minutes
- Wifi - Switched on for a total of 18 minutes. Checked mail. LinkedIn and Facebook updates.
- Mobile data - Switched on for a total of 85 minutes. WhatsApp, Mail, LinkedIn, PlayStore, Office mailbox sync, Gtalk, Google Maps navigation for 6 minutes, streaming music using 8tracks for 12 minutes.
- Games - Played Ninja Chicken for 10 minutes, Angry Birds space for 4 minutes, Temple Run for 6 minutes.
- Camera - 4 photos at night with flash. 11 photos during daytime. 1 video for total duration on 51 seconds.
- Changed theme 3 times in between and wallpaper 2 times
I still have 21% battery left.
Approximate battery usage
1.21% per hour
I will continue till 10% battery (because beyond that my battery management app will kill all processes and further enhance battery life) and further update the post. But at the current rate, a fully charged battery should last me nearabouts 120 hours with normal usage. I would say this is brilliant for a smartphone.
[deleted post]hey hw to update to build version 6.0.A.3.75 mine is 6.0.A.3.62,,,,help me out????????
SONY Xperia S, 13 Jun 2012dont worry at all..... mine also had same prob @ the beginning..... wen i took it to the serv... morehey bro hw to upadate to build version .75?????? pls help me out,,,,thanksss..:)
yes im having the same issue after switch back on the phone from sleep. do you use other launcher app?? exmple: (GO launcher ex) because it might be caused by the launcher app.
just updated to phone SW 6.0.a.3.75. i used SUS (sony ericsson update service) because i wasnt be able to update via PC-Companion. (had try for hundred times
*with SUS it took you 300mb of file size download.
NOW, i am curious whats the changes or major improvement for the update? is there any site were SONY's people could answer this? exactly.
Lucas Lun, 12 Jun 2012Anyone of here would recommend Sony Experia S?? If then,why?? Beginner of using smart Phone..its a great phone but i wld suggest wait for xperia acro s.. its better designed and will be around the same price.. i dont like the touch sensitive buttons on the phone,. they are difficult to hit a ttimes.. acro s wil not have that problem.. all the best !
LouisDR, 12 Jun 2012because the 12MP pictures with this camera, the quality is badddd, looks like 2MP or VGAOr maybe you don't know how to use it! Have a look at these pics taken using SXS camera at night:
Conclusion: SXS camera is awesome if u use correct settings!
guys this is the best phone trust me it's battery ain't an issue I have used a Symbian Nokia 701 and found out that xps S is better in terms of battery
!!!! CONCLUSION THIS PHONE ROCKS IN EVERY DAMN ASPECT.
Rohit, 13 Jun 2012A great phone.. Nice display, good camera,sufficient memory.. A good purchase indeed... But i'... moreyes I am facing this problem too, i reinstalled the app works fine but it happens every now and then :(
Rohit, 13 Jun 2012A great phone.. Nice display, good camera,sufficient memory.. A good purchase indeed... But i'... moreYup, but I don't there is a solution for this untill ICS

andi, 13 Jun 2012I've got that problem after a month of using my Sony Xperia S. I though before it's virus so I... moredid you made some changes to move app from phone storage to internal storage? because i got the same problem but only after moving app to internal storage because some app i guess run in backround and should be in phone memory...
Rohit, 13 Jun 2012A great phone.. Nice display, good camera,sufficient memory.. A good purchase indeed... But i'... moreI've got that problem after a month of using my Sony Xperia S. I though before it's virus so I installed antivirus app but it's still there that dead icon. I just updated my SXS a couple of days ago to the new FW update xxxx.75 and it's gone that dead icon showing every now and then. But when I got that dead icon it does not affect anything though.
A great phone.. Nice display, good camera,sufficient memory.. A good purchase indeed... But i'm facing a small hitch, every time i restart my phone some of the installed apps are shown as a crashed icon and when clicked is promts application not present.. Is anyone else facing the same issue???
