is the internet fast on the phone becuase i need a phone with a fast internet? HELP!?
Cooldude, 15 Jul 2012Lol.. and why would u think that i'm a Sony Fanboy?
I had Samsung Galaxy S(chosen over ... morei think u r a fan boy,because fan boys always believe that their favorite brand is the best brand,even if they have hide some facts about their phones,as i told i am using the xperia pro and i am ready to tell u the cons and pros of the phone truthfully ,and i used the xperia s and i can tell the pros and cons of it too.
i know that xperia s ICS is different from xperia pro but believe me not very....
u r free to prefer xperia s over S3,but xperia s was released to compete with galaxy s2 ,iphone4s but not to compete with the next iphone ,the galaxy s3 or the htc one x,although the one x has a bad camera.
sorry but for me comparing xperia s to the s3 is very illogical.
i don't like sony UI or touch wiz UI,i am using holo launcher and advices my friends to use it regardless of their devices brands.
regarding the camera i didn't say s3 has a better camera,but i am talking about zooming and the black dots issue which was present in sony 2011 devices and the xperia s,u can read the engadget review of the xperia s.
regarding the screen :u r again free to think that xperia s screen is better than s3 screen although most of the famous mobile phones blogs think not.
i did not try the xperia s with latest updates so i can't comment about the touch buttons issue.
the only company that i hate is apple,a lot of my home equipments are sony branded ;)
but as i told u i can not cheat on people.
sony xperia s....ics 4.0.4,at this moment is bthe best phone....better than s3....
Hi friend,please help me to choose phone.I am gonna buy new phone.I have compelled to get Galaxy SII or sony S one.Which one Better?please help me!!!!!

oishiwild, 15 Jul 2012is it true for what i see? there is no Memory Card Slot? only the internal 32mb to 1gb is the ... moreThe memory is 32GB not MB!
I have had the phone for three months now and overall very pleased with it, I was told ICS would be out two months ago, but still no sign of it, where is it Sony?
The only gripe I have is with the touch sensitive buttons at the bottom of the phone, the illuminanted icon shows the 'button' but the actual touch sensitive part is above the icon on the main phone screen, gets a little getting used to, also the touch pad seems a little un-responsive; Why did they swap the Menu icon and back icon buttons arounds, all other android phones have the menu button on the left and back button on the right; just a little quirk, again getting used to it.
lionej\l boss, 14 Jul 2012people told me that the phone with non removable battery isnt a problem but can i ask a quest... moreit's not really a problem though. Having non-user replaceable battery is a disadvantage since if battery's life will end, you need to have it replaced at the service center rather than buying a new one and replace it by your self.. does it make sense?..
Hey Guys to take screen shot on ur Xperia s just hold volume down key and a power off key for a second.. Ur screen is now ready to upload :)
AnonD-7804, 14 Jul 2012All flash memory are like that. My 32GB flash drive only have 28GB usable.People the remaining memory is used for ur os i.e. for android ...... thts the reason it shows only 28gb user available.....so njoy
AnonD-63103, 15 Jul 2012Plz confirm...Yellow tint issue is still there with XS or this problem is resolved now...the yellow tint is a display issue. the new phones should not have it. if you have the yellow tint issue you can get the display replaced under the warranty.
advice, 14 Jul 2012thank u for discussing politely....which is a strange thing for a fan boy.....as i told u i am... moreLol.. and why would u think that i'm a Sony Fanboy?
I had Samsung Galaxy S(chosen over Xperia X10 mainly because of SAMOLED screen, 2 years ago) before and currently have SXS along with Samsung Wave. I was originally thinking of getting the HTC One X few months back, but after a lot of internet study and checking out HTC One X, Sony Xperia S, Samsung Galaxy Note (GS3 was yet to launch) myself at demo stores, I went for SXS. So much for being called a Sony fanboy!
Now, back to topic.. Dude there was no need for such explanation as I already know everything you mentioned about Sony UI as well as Samsung UI (and yeah i'm talking about SGS3). Oh, and btw the SXS ICS is very different from Xperia pro/any 2011 device UI!But, have you used/owned any Samsung android phone? Perhaps, then you might not have said anything about its UI! I have already explained to u why i prefer SXS to GS3, and i can go on and on now.. but i think its pointless!
Let's stick to the camera.. I do agree that SXS camera has higher noise than say SGS3 camera in low light conditions when using auto mode, but you sould know that it still has higher details and better colour! And with perfect settings the noise can be minimised (which i have mentioned to someone before on this thread). Also you should know that in normal daylight the SXS camera blows away any other mobile camera performance with its stunning details n rich colour (sometimes even as good as my Canon Powershot SX 210IS)! Ok about zooming.. i know noise reduction could be better on SXS by better post-processing of the raw image, but its still better than HTC OneX which are way too grainy (due to oversharpening). Also, grain in a fully zoomed pic is visible on a non HD/ normal pc screen and not on SXS screen or any HD screen (e.g on my HDTV). Samsung has better noise reduction but owing to its inferior details and pretty washed-out colours (also lower resoultion) as compared to SXS, I would still say overall SXS camera is better!
And fyi, Sony can capture green grass/blue sky/brown hills without any black spots on 100% zoom unlike Xperia pro!!
About screen, I have used both SAMOLED/HD and Sony bravia screens and can confirm that the SAMOLED has better contrast (esp black) and viewing angles, but SXS has better/vibrant/natural looking/bright colours and is very crispy (342ppi)enabling one to read smallest desktop website fonts without zooming, and better sunlight legibility at lowest as well as max brightness! So, overall i say SXS screen is better!
Yes, i agree touch buttons require getting used to, but thats no problem after a while esp after latest updates!
I'm getting a feeling that you really hate Sony and are hellbent at opiniating people against it! You highlight all the positives about SGS3/Camera while hiding all the negatives & vice-versa for SXS, calling/assuming every other person (justifying Sony/SXS) a fanboy!
is it true for what i see? there is no Memory Card Slot? only the internal 32mb to 1gb is the available data space?
Plz confirm...Yellow tint issue is still there with XS or this problem is resolved now...
Hey guys..i m planning to but this one.plz tell me whether ICS upgrade is free or chargeable..
advice, 14 Jul 2012thank u for discussing politely....which is a strange thing for a fan boy.....as i told u i am... moreSamsung S 3 isnt smart enough it has a poor design with cheap plastic and game performance is awful...i have used both n found xperia is smarter and innovative too..wait this year Samsung will lost from the market...smart n posh ppl are not gonna buy this cheap n flashy thing any more that i believe....
