I've bought this phone last saturday then I updated it to the latest firmware, all I can say that I'm so disappointed with its battery life and WiFi performance , now I kinda regret buying it.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2012hey i also have xperia s, bt its battery backup is very poor, it hardly runs for 3 hours if i ... moreDepends how long do you have the device and how did you prime the battery. Now mine lasts about 8 hours straight full use and about 2+ says of normal use.
I have mine since April. It largely improved over first 10-15 days of use. In that period I tried to drain the battery below 10% before fully recharging - always a good practice despite the claims that it doesn't matter.
If you look at the battery use (Battery indicator Pro) you'll notice that the display drains about 80% of the juice if you play with the phone. Keep the brightness down to 40-50% which is more than enough in all but outdoor sunny environments. Try to fully recharge it whenever you can but only after it has been almost completely drained (drain it on purpose if needed be). You'll see the improvement soon.
PS. Force resets drain additional juice, and they happen with ICS while I did not experience them with GB...
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2012I own arc and xperia s, did compared there camera sample captured.. and it amaze me 8mp vs 12m... moreI agree with you. Even my Sony Xperia S has a very poor "auto focus". It takes take to focus specially in a not well-lighted environment. I am also using iPhone 4S with 8megapixel but my iPhone 4S has a better picture quality both well-lighted and not well-lighted environment. I just hope it will fix with Jelly Bean including the very laggy Timescape UI.
I own arc and xperia s, did compared there camera sample captured.. and it amaze me 8mp vs 12mp, bec. there's no big diff. why?.. compressed image are the same if you zoom it up to 50%. then yes arc is the winner. arc camera is more snappy than xperia s. if you want proof? go to sony talk look at what they complaining about the camera of xperia s "poor auto focus".
