stan16, 04 Oct 2012not the one at the hardware stores.. i meant disinfecting alcohol.. loland how would disinfecting alcohol help?
I bought it few days ago, for about 320 euro in Bulgaria with no contract and I can't express how awesome it feels. The UI is very responsive and quick, and the 12 MP camera is impressive. Said that, the camera's auto-focus could be better - I had, on two occasions, problem with it in bright daylight.
However, changing the metering mode from face detection to simpler centered metering seems to have resolved that. Another drawback - at first the battery was draining like crazy - for half a day typical usage - some calls, little wi-fi browsing and few shots taken, it got from 100% to 30%...
Looking at the battery statistics it seemed to come from the screen primarily, and it improved greatly after reducing the brightness from 100% (which is actually to bright for my taste) to 50% (which frankly is a bit less than I would've wanted if the battery life was no concern). I also disabled the 3G and now use it on 2G network, and just turn the 3G, when I need the extra speed. This seem to extend the battery life from less than 12 hours to maybe 2-3 days, which is still very new for me as this is the first phone I bought in the last couple of years, and I've got a bit used to my phones lasting 1-2 weeks with no charging.
I am very satisfied with all other features as well - the sound quality - both the loudspeakers and the headphones, the noise cancellation - I made a phone call from a very noisy location, which was impossible with my previous phone and the other side could hear me just fine.
So in conclusion, all the cons, I have discovered so far, have simple workaround to overcome, and for this price the phone feels like a very good deal. I strongly recommend! :)
I have no words to express how much i love Xperia S . its ammmmmaazzing.. after the ics update it got even better. i have htc-one as well its a good phone but i love this black Beast.. :-)
