you r really smart :)
SXS looks like a pretty great phone to me...been long tym since i've been in the scene w/ other brands, sony included (been a little tight on money lately...haha)...although i have heard lots of great stuff from samsung's S3 too...but i'm more of an aesthetic guy, i might take this as my nxt fone (sooo not sure yet!!!)...i guess it really depends on where your interests slant when it comes to buying a new fone...
reading comments sections here never gets old...haha
love the way fanboys hate fanboys...LOL
mr A, 18 Jul 2012I have upgraded my phone to 4.0 ICS I dont like it at all So 1- how can I switch back to 2.3... more You can go back to 2.3.7 GB using the flashtool and flashing your region specific ftf/firmware manually. You can uncheck the wipe data/cache option to preserve your data/apps. Go check the xda xperia s section where you shall find everything you need!
SONY Xperia S, 18 Jul 2012Ok. Pls tell me how to test light sensor ?.... =)Auto brightness control is present near the SONY name between led notifications u can see a place a little darker wen viewed under sunlight. Cover the area with ur finger and ull notice the change in screen brightness
nick, 18 Jul 2012I bought this phone. It's benchmark is 3,300. S2 just score 3000 or less I don't belive in benchmarks much, but just for its sake, i too get a quadrant score of 3310 with stock Sony ICS firmware (.452 build no OC)! Wait for the next update (due shortly) as users claim 15% increase in benchmarks!
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2012Did you try them both, coz i got them both and i just want you to know i chose to use the xper... more I totally agree with you on this! But some adamant fools just won't get it, as they can never really think beyond Samsung's quadcore/its spec sheet/features.. let alone trying the real world performance and comparing it with say SXS or others!
I feel that SGS3 is best samsung smartphone till date (Nexus being just as close) but people just get caught up in all the overhype created by fansites/blogs!
Just went to smartphone cafe , the price is 28,700/-.
And they are giving insurance+ goodies.
Sony just like samsung wants to make its mark in the mobile industry.
And definitely it will give tough competition . We all can se how they entered with xperia S 'amazing phone'.
I bought this phone. It's benchmark is 3,300. S2 just score 3000 or less
sony is any time beeter than samsung coz samsung dont provide more than 4x zoom which is bad
This phone is not as much good if we compare to SIII so better go to SIII if we compare with price also.
mr A, 18 Jul 2012I have upgraded my phone to 4.0 ICS I dont like it at all So 1- how can I switch back to 2.3... moreJust perform a master/factory reset now. I bet, you'll love ICS. Backup your data b4 doing this.
Battery not user replaceable! God, why this? only that's why I bought Arc S instead of this, though I've budget and a desire to buy this phone :(
oceng, 17 Jul 2012how to screenshot after ICS loaded??power key + volume DOWN.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2012You just admitted Xperia S doesn't have Gorilla Glass. We can't trust its screen unless it's p... moreDid you try them both, coz i got them both and i just want you to know i chose to use the xperia s, and its simply to tell... first, xperia s is really looks nice ( for me). S3 UI looks cheap FOR ME, I always watching video and I really like the bravia engine (even you dont believe) with more natural colors than SAMOLED. I always listening music in my Xperia S and sound is superb, camera shot of SXS is the best for me. The only thing I like to S3 is its faster when i used for web browsing. By the way, I have a tablet and that's i always use for web browsing..
I have upgraded my phone to 4.0 ICS I dont like it at all
1- how can I switch back to 2.3.7 OS.
2 - will I loose my data if I switch back.

its not all about HARDWARE..consider the features also..you don't need a very high end hardware since phones are upgrading each year. As long as your phone do well(no lags, smooth UI and wide variety of features) it is enough already. and I guess what makes samsung S line up beautiful is thier screen. but it doesn't mean it out performed every handset on the market.
SONY Xperia S, 17 Jul 2012There is no auto brightness option...... But phone is awesome... Have it from June 19th....The SXS has autobrightness it just doesn't work the same as other phones. When you set a brightness level that will be your minimum brightness and the phone will scale it from there. Also it outputs much different values than most phones allowing for less flicker, you shouldn't even notice the change. The auto brightness on SXS works great and if you don't believe me get ahold of an SXS and go into the service menu. Test the light sensor and you will see it does have autobrightness.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2012You just admitted Xperia S doesn't have Gorilla Glass. We can't trust its screen unless it's p... moreYou obviously have no idea what you are talking about.
1. Gorilla Glass is a marketing scheme. If it is soo good then why do iPhone break all the time. Gorilla glass will shatter just like any other glass. It depends on the factors relating to the drop not the glass. Also the thickness is the big thing that will protect the glass.
2. The battery on the Xperia S has gotten much much better with the updates that have fixed the drain. Sites need to retest with .73 update and up in order to see true battery life.
3. Only certain models of S2 have NFC and it is hard for the basic user to figure out which do.
4. MHL is a joke, a full hdmi port is far superior. You have to have an extra dongle with MHL that must also have an external power supply to work. Also there is no way to do USB otg while using MHL which rules out using an external drive to store large movies and files.
5.Xperia S has secondary mic for noise cancellation and the sound quality is one of the best on the market.
6.Xperia S has much better build quality then samsung devices which feel like children's toys.
7.The screen on the SXS is amazing compared to the S2 screen. Amoled sucks for whites and the colors are far to over saturated.
You are obviously the fanboy here and anyone who bought a S2 over the SXS is a fool. If anything buy the Galaxy Nexus because it is the best Samsung device right now besides the S3 simply because it is built to Googles specs.
