I had a go with this handset a few days back. And i feel right now in the market its the best Android handset anyone can get. Im talking about the overall experience, i mean the user interface, hardware, looks etc. It feels quite unique in the hands. Not so broad, bulky or anything like that. Very smooth to use. Im just waiting to buy this now when it is available in Goa.
mangesh patil, 19 Mar 2012yesterday i bought this phone & its awesome.where did you get from ?is it released in india ?
its wonderful to see a phone that can beat samsung galaxy s2 so easily !
But i personally feel the design feels a bit plasticky and a bit cheap !!
I never imagined Sony produce such kind of a design !

got mine delivered last friday and i had 2 nfc tags in the box. fyi i reside in Sweden.
but just to make sure double check all the "hidden" compartments of the box, as i really had to look for my tags, they are tiny :P
I see lot of people complaining about the battery life. But isn't it true that Xperia S supports fast charging capability. I read that you can have almost full charge with 1 hour of charging. Can the XS owners confirm this?
If this is true then I don't think there is any need to complain about the battery life. I guess we can give the phone a break for 1 hour to recharge before using it again.
Just my thoughts!!!
[deleted post]Second that. I believe this could be cheap in manila, people there gotg so much money now, high end products are very cheap in manila now compared to some years ago when the stores were afraid to hav expensive models in stock. But now, filipinos buy everything expensive they can find and prices have fallen a lot, i believe the xperia s cud be very affordable!

[deleted post]Thank you for this.. It is easy to get lost here, with all the people who come to prove a point, instead of users who have used the phone and can impart their opinion on the phone. Do you think it is worth the money you paid for it? How is its multimedia capabilities?
Can anybody tell me when is this phone will be released in Malaysia? I've wait for it for long time. =(
It is quite clear that there is new kid on the block and Samsung users hate this new kid, the Sony Xperia S. They have been voting against it and have been placing negative comments about this phone. I have not own one but I have both held the Samsung S2 and Sony Xperia S in my hand and without a shadow of a doubt I would go for the Sony Xperia S. And for those who want to hate and are hating the Sony Xperia S, the specs speak for itself.
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.
