AnonD-88240, 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.
my friend if u all want gud battery backup plz go for third party batteries .that was best.example ERD EBACK.LIKE THIS COMPANY

U talk about the shape not being convenient, were U sleeping before buying the phone, u didnt check the display device n get a feel of this phone... no updates since two months, U want updates everyday i guess.... i would like to know what is your expectation from this phone as U are telling, 'nothing works as expected'?? what is the problem with the camera?? battery life depends upon how you use the phone & as it is battery life is short in android devices, you should have known this before buying one....
I bought this phone 2 months ago and I am really disappointed... the battery life is really poor and there are no new android updates. The camera is not as good as I expected from a 12 mega pixel phone. The shape of the phone is not convenient at all and nothing works as I expected it to do. I have no words. I trusted sony with my phones for years but this time it completely let me down.
AnonD-86112, 11 Dec 2012no, RAM is not 1GBIt is 1GB RAM. 300MB is reserved for the Adreno GPU and the Android system while the other 700MB is user-available RAM. Would have preferred a much better RAM allocation though.
AERO ZINK, 06 Dec 2012my experia is hang and restart when it start running on an application ......tell me something... moreI just want to share an opinions..I think there are some reasons of your phone misbehave. Either the application had a virus or the application is not stable (there are many applications which can be downloaded for free/paid bersion from Google Play are not stable much with each phone). It's better to upgrade your to the newest Android version to 4.0.4 version which the build number is 6.1.A.2.45 (if your phone didn't had the latest version. See the build number). Should have to protect the phone system with antivirus because sometimes the phone got misbehave infected by virus/spyware/malware..hope this will help you.. :)
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2012The Sony Xperia S is nice.I'm currently using it.It has one problem though,low battery life.Ev... moreYes, i agree with these. Sony phone have good/amazing functions and features especially the camera/display quality. But all sony phones (I think) have low-life battery/fast battery-drained and there's no card slot... Hope sony will added card slot functions for the next models.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2012it's no good that this phone hasn't memory card slotThat's true, buddy! Xperia S had all what I want but the most worst things about sony phones is...there's no card slot! Hope sony will consider to produce their phone with an external memory. The phone sometimes laggy/slower performance.
