Hello guys, im thinking to buy this phone. But i heard about this defect called yellow tint. Does most xperia s users face dis problem or just a small portion of it? What is the rough probability of users facing this defect, like 1 out of a100? I also got news that only the first batch are the defective ones. Since this phone's almost a year old, i'm sure the first batch is long gone. But I'm afraid to believe it. So guys please let me know! Cuz this phone's a boss and too sexy. =)

Samsung galaxy s2 or sony xperia sThe choice between Xperia S and galaxy s2 purely lies in your preferences,both are amazing phones.
If you really have to get a 720p display go for S by all means,just know its LCD viewing angles suck and the blacks look grey. on the flipside colours are much more accurate and its alot brighter than the s2.Note also that bravia engine is a software which you will lose immeditely you flash ur device with a custom Rom
Galaxy s2 has a super Amoled plus display which is veery vivid and vibrant,the colours just pop,they are oversaturated and more punchier unlike the LCD accurate ones. on the flipside u get 800*400 resolution,in this time,2012-2013 this is just sad.
Overall if you dont plan on going geekzilla on your phone (flashing a tonne of roms) and viewing angles dont really bother you and u wonder what the hell does deep blacks mean, Xperia S offers the BEST STOCK EXPERIENCE,the ui is easily one of the best looking ones around.
If you want to go destructo mode on your phone,lets face it touchwiz is ugly,flashing a new Rom every now and then galaxy s2 has one of the most vibrant developer support i've seen and its going to be like that for a longer while,look at the galaxy s dev support!
put simply.... BEAUTY vs BEAST.. your choice.

Samsung galaxy s2 or sony xperia sLook to the left, theres a shootout, Xperia S vs Galaxy S2.
For me its a very easy choice, Xperia S has like 3x the resolution 720p HD display. I have used S2 and it was weird with the oversize display with so low resolution, everything seemed oversized and with cartoon colors, it was like a phone for the handicapped.
Its waste of money to buy so expensive phone now if its not 720p HD. We are not in 2009-2010 anymore, 800x480 is so outdated now.
