Question before I buy. It listed: HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 - LT26i which mean 3G for AT&T?
is this alreadyavailable in saudi?? where's i can buy in saudi?? pls give me specific stores in saudi to buy this smartphone "SONY Xperia S not Sony Ericson".. what about the price is it true between SAR 2.280 - SAR2,350?
dont be fooled by sony... this smartphone is impossible to operate with one hand. the white version stains easily because of the matte finish and the 3 selection keys (i think resistive keys) are not very responsive. check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3uxhpdaDKw
Went into orange shop today to get the S and they said its not out yet even though the website says it available!???
Just got it 4 days ago. LOVE: Feeling in hands, screen size and quality, quality of materials, smart dialing (finaly), TV app (TV HDMI out), music app (edit tags, and controls on lock screen), alarm app, and LOVE the camera (even if i notice some noise on the HD videos)
Don't like (but don't mind): usb/hdmi cover, menu/home/back sensitive butons tricky to get used, no removal battery, no Micro SD slot (even if we can use with an adaptor conect any memory usb key to the phone).
wma?, 13 Mar 2012ive ordered mine but i cant see wma listed as handled in the white paper - is it?Google don't want to support microsoft's proprietary file formats on android os. However the phone's hardware definitely supports .wma or .wmv.
Why they just didnt make display edge to edge? this looks like old fashion not nice at all so thick frames !!
I bought it a week ago, its amazing and the screen is charming but I have noticed two days before whn I open a white color on it there is a light brown color (like light burn) coming from the lift edge of the screen and from the bottom... Do u have any idea???

Best phone so far along with the Xperia ion. Of course, until Xperia Hayabusa shows up!
can any of the owners lemme know if we can click a foto even while recording a video??? very useful yet undiscussed topic...
Sony Lover, 13 Mar 2012Yes, it supports traditional 3G video callNo, this phone does NOT support native 3G video calls.
You can't select voice OR video call whenever you select a contact.
You can make video calls via Skype or Gmail, provided that:
1- Both phones have the same programme installed.
2 - You have paid for a data plan and you still have sufficient data limit (video calls spend several MBs).
3 - You have Wi-Fi available in the place where you are making/receiving the call.
That is not what traditional video calls are considered.
Native video calling implies selecting "video call" from your contacts menu and placing a call wherever you are, without any third-party programmes installed, without needing or worrying about Wi.Fi connections, even on the move, without paying extra for it, or even needing a data plan.
UNFORTUNATELY, that is NOT possible in current Sony phones.
