Got the Xperia S on Friday from Phones4U in the UK. Fabulous screen (I believe it's got the highest PPI of any phone currently available in the UK) and great camera. If I'm honest, the battery life is disappointing - after using Wi-Fi, GPS, or playing videos etc. then you should expect to recharge every night (but then again, isn't this true of pretty much every modern phone?). It's also towards the physically large end of handsets available, but not as big as the Galaxy Nexus or Samsung Note. I was also disappointed to find that, unlike in some reviews I'd read on the internet, the phone did NOT come supplied with any NFC tags.

However, overall this seems like a great phone so far. It always makes me laugh when reading these opinions when people get all excited about User Interaces and whether it plays games or has the latest software, when hardly anyone comments on what it's like at making calls. The Xperia S is comfortable to hold, I get a very good strong signal and the audio is loud and crystal clear. Sony, after all, does have a pedigree of making high quality audio and video equipment, and I think this is reflected in the Xperia. Also, my previous Sony handsets (I have a T310, T610, and P900) have all carried on going after pretty much every other handset has crashed, or screen cracked, or just generally bust, so I'm hoping this will have a long life too.

Best out of all in row. Best battery usage. All other phones you may have to charge in half a day. Features are best out af all.

It's more towards efficient data processing therefore energy saving. And all 4 cores fires up together, it's just some will stay idle. They still consume electricity.

its heavy, its not as curvy as the x10, but its well thought out in design and the chip and software works well, its quality over bleeding edge
