To all those who are asking about battery life :-
In gingerbread the battery was draining fast no doubt.
But ics update has improved it alot. No problem in battery department after Ics update.
Also i keep my brightness level to 50%+ my wifi is always on and i get around 18 to 20 hours.
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2012nothe only issue with XPERIA S whn compared to S2 is battery life... i m not sure if XPERIA S is having better battery life than S2.
Guys i wanna buy this phone but when i compared its video resolution with that of samsung s3, u can easily find the diffrence that even though samsung s3 is having a camera of 8mp its qulaity to capture image and video is far more better than SXS. can any one suggest me which 1 to buy? Also, after reading the reviews, i assume there is a big problem with the battery and other features of SXS.

i think the xperia s has a higher pixel density due to its smaller screen also has a better primary camera. if you want more information just read gsmarena's comparison of the two

[deleted post]Hi,it is normal for smartphones to heat up when in use as it has a lot of applications running in the background. It is also normal that the battery drains fast when wireless communications such as WI-Fi, mobile data or 3G and Bluetooth are being used. Or try repair your phone since it is upgraded to ICS maybe it is a software glitch.
If PC Companion is already saved on your computer,please be advise that you uninstall it first then reinstall the updated version prior to repairing the phone software.
Note: Please be advised to back up your personal data saved in the phone memory such as contacts, messages, files, photos and videos before doing this procedure to prevent data loss.
Here is the link to download the updated PC Companion: http://www.sonymobile.com/global-en/tools/pc-companion/
To do a software repair:
1. Open PC Companion
2. Click Support Zone
3. Click Start
4. Phone Software Update
5. Click Start
6. Repair Phone
If the issue still persist, you may proceed to the nearest Sony service centers in your place.
Hope it helps!
I m bit confused now... some says battery got improved with ICS updates some say they are still having the issue... could any one please provided me trusted facts :)
A reply will be much appreciated.
[deleted post]I dried the battery in Five and half hour if The Brightness set to 100%. I used it for browsing and chatting. And for the data connection I used Mobile Network. The device is not so hot like u said :)
Hi pals ... I have a small question regarding my SXS ... It gets heated up too soon and the battery drains jst too quickly just in about 8 hrs ! Does anyone know why this is happening ? Is there any problem with the handset ? And yes ive upgraded it to ics already
can anyone pls post me the advantages of going to xperia s over s2??pls..
anyone having problems playing dead trigger in their xperia s?
my gameplay is smooth no lags
but their appears to be some graphical hitches
some textures of the zombies' clothes seem to look....transparent/translucent
I tried taking a screenshot but the screen registers normal textures
it seems the problem occurs only when I move around in my character
do you know Xperia Go?
'Made to resist'
It said the phone with extra durability and the spec is the same about Scratch Resistant Glass.
Because of my experience problem with the screen, I can doubt that the Xperia Go still has poor scratch resistant glass too! So be careful ! Do not BELIEVE it.
One of the big merits of this phone over other Android smart phones is that it does not have to be rooted in order to install ICS rom before the official update released by the each SI number. There are already Swiss and German generic version of ICS with firmware version 452 or a newly leaked UK version of ICS with firmware number 453. I have installed the version 453 using flashtool 9.0 and the procedure is just simple. Sony released pre-rooted ICS rom for user to download, unlike other leaked rom from the XDA-developer which required a rooted device. Good job Sony.
I was no doubt about Sony about scratch resistant glass so I just put it into my pocket without worried. And I regret it, I should doubt it for the first time when I bought it.. Ugh :(
Yeah SONY is MAKE BELIEVE :)
About pre-applied screen protector, Yes there is pre-applied screen protector but I didn't know it until you guys mentioned it.
So I can say:
The function of pre-applied screen protector is to PROTECT the scratch resistant glass. I'm sorry, it sounds FUNNY to me.
Maybe the Gorilla Glass is too humble to say their product as Scratch Proof Glass than Scratch Resistant Glass.
