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? :)

Everytime you switch off the phone and switch on it back, some apps (mostly apps that you downloads) randomly crash and become grey boxes, if you touch it, note " Apps not found". Quite annoying for me especially my favorite apps randomly crash..other than that, this phone is great, suite my need perfectly..period.

A lot of reviews complain about the touch buttons being not very responsive but when I used my friends Xperia S there was no problems at all. GREAT phone

Must See This ..

Regarding issues, it has been solved in upcoming phones like in India u wont get this prob bcoz this problem was sort out way b4 launch in INDIA(10th april)..

Means u wont get problem in any upcoming XS anywhere.


Advantages ..

Music n its interface
Best Screen Till date
Futuristic Design
Quality
TV Launcher
Resolution with High PPI(342)
Camera
NFC
Fast Speed
50 gb cloud storage(dont know about life time)
Anti Stain Coating
Fast Charging capability


Disadvantages ....

-Micro SIM
-Dosnt supports divx Formats(Runs limited video formats)
-Automatic Ambient light sensor control
-Battery Life(Same story for all android phones)
-Photo compression
-No Card slot
-Poor viewing angel but better than old SE phones
-Old Bluetooth(2.1)(even nokia 4k phones have 2.1 version)
-U cannot transfer more than 4gb in drive bcoz it FAT32
(u can check regarding this in xda developers forum)
-U cannot take out Battery(If it gets prob u have to give phone instead of battery which is not a good sign)


If u need somefeatures which are its disadvantage better wait upcoming phones like SGS 3 etc.

My SXS works perfect and I don't have even a single issue since I bought it 3 weeks ago. SXS is really a piece of beauty thanks to SONY. I would like to think that all SXS in the whole middle east has no issue at all whatsoever. Now, I am just waiting for the ICS for my SXS to be available very soon.
