xperia s is one of the strongest smartphones from sony and amongst all android phone,
my reasons are
when your battery is fully charge I noticed that the phone prevents the phone from excessive charge those of you who likes Samsung phones their phones doesn't have this ability the maximum a Samsung battery can last is 1yr after that then you start having battery issues.
2. xperia s is drop test is awesome
3. when you notice lag in your xperia s pls I advice that you avoid OTA updates from google play and set it to manual
4. try root your xperia s and install greenify.apk, greenify(donation package), xpose module, frame work.
for rooting goto xda developers
5. The HD is awesome apart from the sony bravia engine that's enhances pics, to edit your pics try installing picsay pro.apk
NB if you are a heavy user and you start noticing lag everytime I advice you wipe the phone because data clache, thumbnails etc needs to be delected.but don't forget to backup important apps, contacts
have been using mine for a year+3 months its awesome

Had this phone over a year and really want to change it. Freezes every so often and the battery is useless. I can't get 20 hours standby with it. One time it was dead after just 5 hours with it being in standby mode most the time.
i've been using this xperia s since august 2012, my first paycheck on my first permanent job, and i should say, its the most solid smartphone i've ever used. although it happen to be freezed sometimes, just a reboot would be fine and the hardware durability really amazed me, the screen, sound quality, button, is still as good as new. im using android 4.1.2 jelly bean, and really enjoy using it.
as for charging time, it only need around 2hours from 20% or below to be fully charged, and oh, im using another charger, Samsung Note 2 charger, the one with 2.0Amp charging current, i didnt use the stock charger because it is slower than the note 2's. the battery's also fine until now, no damaged, no swelling and such. as far as i know, Sony did it well for the battery not to overcharge when the battery is overheat or the temperature is quite high. that is why i never had any problem with the stock battery until now, 2years..
another job well done for Sony Smartphone, even though they are quite slow for the new model implementation compared to Samsung, Sony's smartphone are really solid and well made to be used for long time.
Was using this phone for past one year. Recently would hang while making a call or would be slow. Just reset the phone and was fine, only to know that now my phone only works on 3g network. It does not work on 2g, says unable to connect to network. Only 3g SIM card with 3g network coverage areas the phone works. Can any one help. Tried all stuff. Gsm mode ~ does not register at all. PleaSe help. Really good phone though.
And for charging.
When mobile data is in gsm mode, it will take you 3 hours.
When wcdma mode, it will take you 6 hours.
Thats all. ;)
Hi, good eve.
I've been using this phone since August 2012.
i did experienced some problems all you people are posting.
But I had successfully manipulated them to not interfere upon my usage for 26hours with mobile data continuously running.
I will tell you how.
Shut down your phone, and then turn it on.
Don't touch the screen till it locks itself.
Now unlock it. And use it as you prefer.
It will not hang or so whatever, even morethan a month without restarting.
If you want to prolong the battery life,
Turn your mobile data to gsm only,
If you are just using apps for messaging, then gsm is enough.
By chance if you want to make a call using an app, then switch mobile data to wcdma. Then switch it back to gsm after the call.
Hope it helps you.
