My experience with Xperia S.
Can update to Jelly bean and ICS. Super! Without updation also its very good.
Battery - Its normal that we tend to loose battery in Sony sets for long time listening music, playing games and videos.. Its normal.. Good battery :-)
Video capturing, playing - Fantastic!
Games - Very nice experience with good clarity!
Style- I guess it beats all recent smart phones.. Looks really superb Narrow King! Epecially BLACK Wow:-) Very smooth finger touch experience.
Heating Its normal friends dont worry.. but frankly, (dont over load your phone with apps or countinously use the phone without rest). So do not worry its safe :-)
Processor is cool and simply fast...!
Good that sony has launched such a beatiful phone Xperia S...People who own this set
enjoy thier moments a lot...Enjoy friends...
OOPs I feel very impressed about the xperia s device even if i havent gotten it yet. but i must say that as i leave here now, i am walking into a phoneshope to get mine so i cvould also get on the xperience trail so i could be very factual when convincing someone about it.
It's really a bad phone. i have this phone having battery problem it give a back up of only 4 hour and i submitted my phone to service centre they took 40 days to repare the mobile. sony service support is really bad.

AnonD-67911, 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.. :-)
