BIGBOSS78, 14 Dec 2012I'm going to buy a new phone, but I can't decide: P or S?
I know specs, BUT I want YOUR opi... moreThats difficult to answer. We cant have both, I use XP. Overall and number wise XS is better than XP.
But i chose XP,
1.It can handle most of the things that XS can,
5.Slimmer body in the sense that it look pretty on the side the curved tapper back shape made it look like a 8mm phone.
6.Premium aluminum case,
7. fits right on hand
8. on experience ICS update made a big impact to battery, it last longer by almost 30%. Stand by hours could last 1 week. But remind you it only has 1350 battery. if you're a hard user this is not for you. For moderate user it last 1 day, for hard user it could last 10-12 hours. Charging time is 30-40 min from 0% to ~100%.
Bad side of XP: none removable battery but sony center can replace it for you. Ignore 13gig if its not a problem to you. Other than those its +++ amazing phone.
I have no experience using XS but i choose XP based on item 1 thru 7 on my list above.

I have been using sony xperia s for a month now and i love this phone but I have a problem....available ram is only 250 mb or so and when i play a game it goes down to 80 mb nd during the gameplay it pauses and begins to flash....plz can someone tell what is wrong its really frustrating
its quite a sensation using sony xperia s
a very good phone and very good features
i am using xperia-s since last 3 months. overall good phone, but most poor part of the phone is 12 MP Camera.
Sony makes and belive to make people fool by wrong information about its phone. The camera of xperia-s is poor then Galaxy S2. It is not 12 MP, it is less than 8 MP. Photos in daylights are brighter then the light (difficult to identify the face), night photos are pixlate. Very bad Camera I have ever seen.
my brother send me xperia s to soudi arabia bt i am disappointed about battery support........... itz very poor what can i do now?
Personally I must say i fell in love with this phone when i first saw it and did not hesitate to buy it but i really am disappointed in the phones's battery life,i mean i have done everything there is to reduce the battery's consumption,SONY PLEASE HELP US WITH AN UPDATE MAYBE...I LOVE THIS PHONE..

sebilion, 11 Dec 2012I bought this phone 2 months ago and I am really disappointed... the battery life is really po... moreI'm sick of reading people complain about the SXS.
Now there are heaps of things which increases the battery discharge, some of those things are:
1) live wallpapers (which are really cool by the way)
2) illumination bar (mine blinks when i have a msg or miss call)
3) touch vibrate and sound
4) Sony bravia screen (increase brightness and colour) and the SXS has a big screen and more PPI which will increase bat discharge.
5) Apps which constantly tries to connect to web to update (OTA)
6) Apps which are open but not doing anything
Just turning above things off will help minimize battery discharge.
RAM (SXS has 1GB)
Those who own a SXS has a section where you can see how much ram the phone is using that the total doesn't equal 1gb. That's because X amount (around 300mb) is allocated to the phones operation. The rest is for apps and games. Now unless the phone has a pop up saying "can't play or open app" due to not habing enough ram space, there's nothing to worry about. Sony have spent bundles of cash in R&D and found that for 1gb of ram is enough for the average user.
i have been using the Nokia N8 for the last 2 years and have updated to the SXS as my plan has finished. I'm a photo nazi and love taking pics of everything hence my requirement for a good camera with my phone. The image quality on the SXS compared to my N8 is the same or in most circumstances better than my N8. Also when I compare the image, I upload and compare on a PC not from the phone screen as the screen doesn't show true. Only thing I don't like about the SXS camera is that there's no way to turn flash on, the phone always makes the choice for you.
