Yusei, 09 Mar 2012outdated? ROFL
Dude specs isn't everything, look at WP, they are super fast in Web Browsing... moreYes... outdated! This is the same as the arc! Sony is just playing catch up with big names! And sadly, as always, it is one year too late! But let us let numbers do the talking! Let's see how the Xperia S does in the market, alright? Next to all the quad-core devices coming out this year... including, yes, the GS3! With any luck, maybe Sony's 2013 flagship will probably catch up with the former flagships of 2012! Now that is worth a ROFL
one thing this shoot-out failed to mention is the price difference between the S2 and the Xperia S. this year old flagship is a winner in my opinion. Sony did a great job on the screen, i give them that but not that's not enough. the SAMOLED plus still fares well and the all out performance of the S2 makes me lean towards it.
Rip, 09 Mar 2012It's a shame that Sony's flagships become midrange cr@p in no time!
This is another Xperia... moreoutdated? ROFL
Dude specs isn't everything, look at WP, they are super fast in Web Browsing without DC or QC.
At this time, Sony just use a tecnology that is stable and works perfectly, wait until you see the QC phones and my Xperia S will do everything like them, with, better camera, better sound, better screen and so on...
Thank you for helping me decide for what phone to buy. I was between this two, i have seen them both live but the HD resolution of the xperia s has made the difference for me over the galaxy s2. And what i lacked in order to buy the xperia s was your post. I am not a core addict since i do not play any games in my mobile and i believe a dual core phone is more than enough.
Zephyron, 09 Mar 2012For the record, I'm getting my SGS2 back soon enough, and I'll do a nightshot in pitch darknes... moreCouldn't Agree with you more. White paper lovers can stick with these Samsungs and all else BUT THEY LACK SENSE AND STYLE. User experience is exactly the reason why I gave up on GS2 and went for ARC S. Hell it fits better in hand. The ergonomics are way better and I have no complains. Also this fuss over the "AMOLED" & viewing angles... really it doesn't matter as much in reality. In fact I found GS2's screen to be too dark in dark areas missing details. While Arc S does much better. More over the, buttons, the direct sun light legibility is better in the Arc S. All in all the overall experience I have had with Arc S is much better than that of GS2's. Its more about Clever sensible designing than creating hype in the specs sheet.
I speak for the likes of myself... no real discredit meant to the hot selling (hyped) GS2.
RamyRamz69, 09 Mar 2012And when Haybausa is released your S3 will look like a toy :)Sony LT29i Hayabusa - dual core
Samsung Galaxy S3 (definitely will have Quad core)
Iphone 5 (will get quad core)
LG Optimus 4X HD
Huawei Ascend D Quad
All have quad core

r41n, 09 Mar 2012Xperia S beats GS2 in every way. This is an in between relaese. GS3>Xperia S> GS2 since ... moreIt's a shame that Sony's flagships become midrange cr@p in no time!
This is another Xperia X10... late to the party specs and softwarewise!
Enjoy your already outdated Xperia S!
r41n, 09 Mar 2012Xperia S is lot better in almost every aspect. It's galaxies away from GS2. specially the design.Better? I don't think so... Probably... maybe, the same (maybe)! And to think it only took Sony (SE)more than a year to finally catch up with the phone that has been at the top spot for almost a year! Lol...
And even then, they couldn't match it
How pathetic is that!! Pathetic!
Kesper, 09 Mar 2012The Xperia S is yottamiles ahead of the S II :))Xperia S is lot better in almost every aspect. It's galaxies away from GS2. specially the design.
i switched from galaxy s1/moto atrix/lg optimus 3d to this phone and i must say this thing is a monster. it bascially eat up all the past android device i had owned.
Actually, video recording in front facing camera is damn possible in galaxy s2. Go to video mode and select 'self recording' in the video option on the top left corner.
I think Xperia S deserves the extra cash for its design and camera
Xperia S > Galaxy S II
Galaxy S III probably > Xperia S
If the Xperia S had a newer generation GPU and quad core processor I probably would have bought it by now.
I don't want a 4.8" phone.
