> In reply to Shaaz @ 2012-04-19 09:21 from wdQR - click to readI traded-in my Arc S for this phone approximately one and a half month ago, didn't find the phone got much improvement over my previous Arc S; except the screen resolution & camera is better. Internet speed is okay, but not great. Then, a little over 2 weeks ago, I brought the HTC One X & found that phone to be in a different class - so much faster then the Xperia S, and much nicer to use, and better build quality. There are lots of good functions with is missing in the Xperia S. I also prefer the screen colour of the HTC One S (more natural). The HTC is much faster in talking pictures (0.7s), and I especially like the continues shots function. Xperia S photo quality is better though.

Price difference between the HTC One S (4.7" screen, quad core) & Xperia S (4.3" screen, dual core) is not that much(approx. 50 Euro), so I suggest for you to also check out the One X from HTC, then make your choice.

> In reply to Genuine_Review @ 2012-04-19 07:43 from vG9n - click to readI just bought SXS a couple of days back, I was getting an icon on the notification bar which asked to update the firmware like you did. I used the link: soneericsson/update and i followed the instructions and installed sony companion and attempted to update. But a message came on my computer that said software update failed. Then nothing was happening for a couple of minutes. I tried to turn on the phone but could not and the back of the phone is very hot. I am clueless what has happened and now what to do. Please guide me. The phone is still not turning on. The phone is without warranty. Is there a chance that the software has been corrupted or there could be a malfunction. If possible please ask somebody knowledgeable and reply to me coz there are no sony service centres in my country and i m totally clueless as in what to do. Looking forward to your reply.

I have a very important question and I dont seem to find a solution.. Many of my apps run in the background even after using "TASK KILLERS" and they shutdown the apps, after a while when I check what apps are running I see the same app again and again! This just means that task killers are useless my RAM is always ALMOST Full! Please help?

I am using this phone since the day it launched in India...April 12....I have got the white one.. Still can't stop gushing... its the best screen the World can ever experience... Sexiest looking phone till date..stunning camera and interface...waiting for ICS update...Hope the phone sets the sales charts on fire...though SONY has bad marketing strategies......
