I bought the phone from Croma, Fort. The phones lock key does not work properly and neither does its 'sense' which says that the phone will remain on till you look at it. It does not vibrate when you pick it up if there is any missed call. Neither Croma or Samsung is willing to exchange the phone. It has been a terrible experience
Okay..I got it as it will be very difficult to get such specifications in one mobile so here are my compromises
1) It will be ok if the PPI is just 240 to 250.
2) It will be ok if screen size is just 4 or 4.2 inch.
3) Dual core will be ok, as not looking just for quad cores and 8 cores at all due to battery issue.
Now want upgrad it should be:-
1) more than 1 gb ram.
My specifications were:-
1) Display should be like S3 in Indoors.
2) Display should be like One X in Outdoors.
3) Looks of the mobile should be One X.
4) Camera should be like Nokia 808.
5) Additional features of S3 over One X.
6) Audio quality of One X.
7) Flash like Nokia 808.
8) Audio recording quality should be like Nokia 808.
9) Colors should be of S3 Screen.
10) Sharp and fine details from One X.
11) Battery should come for 4 to 5 days with normal usage like my Samsung S52222 mobile.
12) Dual sim active mode.
13) Do not want any background services running in the next version of Android which effecting performance of the mobile.

AnonD-252, 04 Jul 2012Xperia S is the ugliest phone ever, and 808 is the second ugliest phone ever!niether xperia s is ugly nor pureview. i think u should design them.
please guide me frndz ..currently using Sony ericsson arc S...but want to buy s3 should I go for it...is it a gud choice..CONFUSED,..
The more I use the phone the more disappointed I get with it. I can ignore the lags in the menu when you pinch to view all pages or widget pages, or the ridiculous lagging in watsapp n chaton. but now I've noticed that the multitasking isn't that great either. All S3 users try this...start a high graphic game(I tried Highway Ride),pause it after a few seconds of the game play beginning and press the home button. Then go to Task Manager and u will see the game is still in Active Applications. Now press the Center button again n open browser. Open www.gsmarena.com and now go to Task Manager and check Active Applications. You will see that the game you had paused is closed and progress is lost. Really pathetic Samsung...Is this the performance of a high end device???

I can ignore the lags in the men... moreAgree, most of the time my S3 while playing a web video content the frame freezes and the sound continue on the background. Now I have to go back to my S2 for the meantime until this issue is fixed.
