My phone charges for about 2 hours... battery drains very quick... oh well... but the screen is good... another thing I have experienced is that the phone sometimes removes apps that are saved in the internal storage... It becomes 4 kb... Oh well... I will just wait for the 4.0 update... hope sony will fix the bugs... :(( overall 7/10

Lack of memory card slot has put Sony xperia S missing the Feb 2012 MWC crown.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-03-19 15:28 from m7Ew - click to readthe price of xperia s here in manila is way cheaper than what i've expected it to be. if you are going to buy the gadget here in manila, i suggest you transact online. the least expensive price of the phone is around P24,900 which is at around $557 USD in cash. no contract. the most expensive price of this can be found in several malls which is P35,000 or at least $812 USD. if you want it cheaper, at least half of $557/P24,000 then better shop in DUBAI! it is sold HALF of its price in manila. =)

So you need to get some kind of ad killer to the apps. It will make the batterylife way better. The ADfree app is one of those apps that doesnt allow advertisement inside the apps.

Guys,

Been using this phone for about a week now. Here are my impressions:

Good Stuff:
01. Display - Absolutely stunning, spotless and accurate.
02. Performance - No lag or delay in any operation.
03. Sony Skin - Simple, elegant and minimal.
04. Camera - One of the best out there.
05. Accessories - free HDMI cable, free MW-600 bluetooth headset (pre-order offer, Jumbo, UAE), extra screen protector, NFC tags.

Bad Stuff:
01. Battery - Barely lasts a day. The battery widget indicates that Android system consumes quite a bit of energy. Even in standby mode, Android eats up energy. I've disabled all radios but still the phone is not energy efficient. I am hoping that jump to 4.0 might improve slightly. But all those background processes running in Android consume too much energy.

02. Not to comfortable to hold. I find the phone a bit too thin. I am used to bulky robust small screen phones. Still getting used to this one.

> In reply to Sony S or Sam S2 @ 2012-03-21 09:21 from uH$Y - click to readJust go and see it ... i replaced mine, i dont say s2 is bad, but actually it cant match the dazling display of sony.. i like the tiny led indicater its a pleasure to play with. i am not too much into technical details but if we look at the fundamentals sony is better than s2. BUT!!! never to forget samsung s2 was a hero of the previous year. its 2012 so you guys might know more about the technical stuff.

Still early to tell about battery as I just fully charged it the 1st time this morning. But I have bluetooth enabled, wifi on, downloading apps and surfing web on the phone, battery still seems ok.

Will revert back again once I have used this phone for a week or so.

Hi MOHINDAR, good day!
Well, that's a good news, full charging time less than an hour, but what about its battery life? Is it awful, unacceptable? or good? or excellent compare to other high-end smartphones? thanks @_@

Just got this yesterday.

The box itself was big, unlike other phones that comes in small compact boxes. Many accessories included in the box, including USB car charger, wall charger, HDMI cable, 2 smart tags and headphones.

The phone itself is beautiful. I changed from Samsung Note to XS. I would have to I prefer XS many times compared to samsung note.

Battery gets charged to 100% from 2% in less than an hour.
