I really hope they'll have a good turn-over this year, because smartphones like this should not become a rare attempt at innovation, but welcomed as a standard
Will wait for this device to launch & then I will decide between galaxy note & xperia s
This phone is already released at least in Sweden. It's available by 2 networks
Check their websites!
this phone doesn't just look awsome its specifications are awsome too! i am planning to buy it but it hasn't got LTE :(
Official release is slated to be in March 2012. Awesome phone, can't wait 2 try it...

DarkZide, 20 Feb 2012rELease the Xperia S.. So we can Xperience it!it has a 1.5GHZ DAUL Core... hehehe...
pepeliit, 25 Feb 2012Oh man!!! Li-Ion 1750 mAh my gosh another phone that only last when you start working and last... moreYet another one who jumps to conclusions without having hard facts in hand
Comment there is quite cynical in fact
Check the posts below on my comments on its battery life
It's not the best out there, but it's nowhere as hopeless as you make it sound
8h52min on browsing, video, text, phone, photo and music with screen on 75% brightness before dropping to 4% is good enough for me
Having 32GiB of internal memory is good enough for most, and the internal memory speeds are faster than any SD cards out there to support the high speed camera capture features of the phone, similar to the Galaxy Nexus. Using a slow to mid end SD card will just slow the phone down and drain even greater amounts of battery
If you're worried that much about storage space, just use BOX to transfer data onto the cloud. You get 50GBs worth of it with Android anyway
Even when 20.8GB of memory for purely videos alone, I can store more than a few movies like Star Trek XI, Aliens VS Monsters, an Episode of Gundam UC and 2 Episodes of Top Gear Season 18 and many other small video clips + my own video recordings in a mix of 720p and 1080p and top it off with well over 2000 pictures from my digital camera and place a music collection of 1700 pieces in
For the record, no SD cards are as fast as the internal memory of the XS, not even class10 microSDs
Oh man!!! Li-Ion 1750 mAh my gosh another phone that only last when you start working and last at the end your working period damn!!.
Hoping to buy this phone but it turns out to be another High powered phone but without Endurance. I hope that i am the one who is mistake my comment.
Btw are you sure it has no external memory card? another flaw for it
Thilanka, 24 Feb 2012guys is it true that we can't change the battery of this beauty? if yes then we have to throw ... moreyes i heard the same, its only the thing which tending me to think again and again abt buying this mob.
Any idea if the "music unlimited" and "video unlimited" of SONY is already available worldwide?
please can anybody explain this to me....people in India, France & other countries got their hand on the Xperia S...and the unboxing videos are just getting numerous on youtube & in the same time Sony says officially it's "coming soon" how is that??!! the phones bought by normal people in 3 continents & they are posting videos about the picture & video samples , UI & how fast is the boost...it's all over youtube ?!! please explain this.
87ROCK3R, 25 Feb 2012Hi Zeph, Thanks for sharing all these info about the Xperia S, appreciate it. If its possible,... moreI'm a bit of a portable hifi audiophile, so quite frankly, no cellphone speaker, no matter how 'good' or loud they are, can ever impress me really, so kinda the wrong guy to ask here >_>;
Not touching on quality, the speakers on the Xperia S is somewhat louder than that of the Xperia arc/S
Not as loud as either the RAZR or the Live w/ Walkman, but sufficiently loud enough to wake me up in a bit of a shock after setting a flashbang explosion as my alarm ringtone (ex military, got woken up that way while on field practice before)

If its possible, could you give us a feedback about the audio quality of the speaker? Thanks again mate :)
tiju a joseph, 25 Feb 2012Advantages of sony xperia s: high resolution screen,1.5 dual core processor,
12. 1 mp camera,... more8 hours 52 minutes run time
1.5 hours on HD video through HDMI streaming, 6 minutes of talk time, some snapshots and video recording, a bit of web browsing, some Twitter and Facebook, a few file transfers from the netbook not surpassing 3 minutes.
'Having a charger all the time' is somewhat a harsh, invalid point
32GB of internal memory is plenty, and pairing the fast camera = extremely fast internal memory of >30MB/s read and 14+MB/s write. No Class10 microSD comes to that kinda speed, none, zip, nada, zero.
MicroSIM is hardly a disadvantage, when it can be used with all phones with a simple to use adapter and has higher storage capacity than regular SIMs (telco dependant). One would only say this if one is afraid of an... inconvenience... of no significance
OTOH, normal SIMs can't fit into a MicroSIM phone without first being cut, which risks damage depending on chip layout
