egawady, 19 Jul 2012Does this phone support VoIP ? Can I use Skype & Viber on it to make calls oIP ??Would you consider this phone better than Xperia Arc S aside from the internal memory and camera? I have an Arc s and im dying to have this phone. I love my Xperia so I wanna make sure that I wont regret changing phones if I buy this.
Nice smartphone, its fast (even being an smartdragon s3), very atractive, GREAT CAMERA, best phone ive had (the last phone i hgad was an iphone 3gs)
nick, 18 Jul 2012I bought this phone. It's benchmark is 3,300. S2 just score 3000 or lesswhy i have s2 ice cream score 3950
After all these months, finally got ICS on my Xperia S and loving it! Great stuff Sony, the SXS toting ICS is now truly a great phone.

Or we have to purcha... more Mine came within the box (with car charger, extra usb cable, 2 nfc tags, hdmi cable, stereo headphones etc) but i guess the contents of package vary from place to place. So, you better check out the box and the list of its contents printed outside just to be sure!
In the same price of this phone I can buy Samsung galaxy s3 which is way better than Sony xperia s.. samsung quad core > Sony dual core
qman, 19 Jul 2012just bought the phone second hand and was wondering about battery charging time... realize a p... more What charger are you using? Mine takes about 1hr45min to charge it from under 10% to 100% using sony (EP800) charger. Time to charge depends on what charger you use and battery condition (i.e. caliberation). Also, if you swith off and charge then its faster (about an hr & a half). To check the battery health, perform a battery test using the service menu (*#*#7378423#*#*).
anyone can tell me why i can't send picture to samsung galaxy s3 using nfc? it kept coming out error. but SGS3 can send me the file using nfc. but i can't find it.
Hey can anyone tell me whether the box includes NFC tags and HDMI cable?? Or we have to purchase them separately?
just bought the phone second hand and was wondering about battery charging time... realize a phone with these specs your only gunna get a days use out of it but it takes me a good 4 or so hours from about 2% battery to full charge....
does this sound about right or u guys think there may be an issue with the battery??
AnonD-42603, 19 Jul 2012Ow ok, but in my case it works fine, but still be observant of the things that will work best ... moreya... advanced task killer.... but it uses 20 mb ram... so .... i clear the tasks by long pressing the home button.... and it really works..... i will always have 270+ mb of ram available.....
Ow ok, but in my case it works fine, but still be observant of the things that will work best for your XS, and the task background is a good idea specially to those apps or games that doesn't have the "exit game" command. Even though I always thought it was like an SOP when creating apps or games. hahaha. Now I know why ION's battery was increased or maybe it has something to do with external SD card. Hey any specific app for the task background app killer?

So it's not a good idea to restart phone everyday to conserve battery. Not at all. You can install auto background task killer app like "ram booster pro" to conserve battery.
just bought the phone the other week, updated it to ICS, so far everything is fine. The real challenge is the battery though. I really can't complain because with a display this good battery will discharge faster. I am just really trying to find a way to make the battery last for more than a day. Here is what I do
1. Turn of bravia engine when really not needed.
2. maintain brightness to 50% and backlight off.
3. Turn off bluetooth and GPS when not needed.
4. Those vibrate on touch can be disabled.
5. Lower the screen time out to a minute or below.
6. Data and Wifi off when not needed.
7. Restart the phone at least once each day.
8. Remove unnecessary widgets.
9. Use simple wallpapers not animated ones.
You can do some of this at the same time using the power saver function or using the xperia tags
Hi All, I am going to buy this phone. Need few clarifications.
1. As for all phone users, the speed of the phone is very important to me. Like any phone user, I hate waiting for ages to open an application. In terms of speed, how is this Phone's performance? Copmared to Samnung Galexy S 3 or Apple 4S, how is the speed?
2. I want to get the phone upgraded to Android 4. Is this a good move? Are there any risks? Does it impact any functionalities of the phone badly?
Than you very much,

Anyone who has encountered some lags on opening the apps. after ICS 4.0.4 update can overcome the problem by downloading some applications from the playstore. One app. called "Dialer one" from the playstore will open the phone dialer app. in a sec rather than having to wait for 3 seconds after the ICS update. Also, I download a launcher called Android 4 ICS launcher. This launcher resembles the Google stock ICS 4 launcher very much except that the icons used are still the Sony's own icons. However, this launcher greatly improved the scrolling experience of the Sony's ICS launcher after the ICS 4.04 update. Anybody encountered the lagging experience after the android 4 ICS update may overcome this laggy problem this way before the next software update from Sony.
