At last I updated my SXS last night after struggling for few days after I saw my SI number released since June 22. The new album is awesome but there are types of photos that you can't zoom by tapping twice. Quickpic app still the best for me. There's little lag when exiting from some applications back to main screen as icons on the launch pad does not show immediately. It seems my Xperia Arc looks smoother. However, I am still playing with my SXS running ICS and sometimes after few days or after few reboots, then it's getting better in terms of speed and s

1) It supports all headphones with a 3.5mm jack
2) Battery life depends totally on the apps you run. As i am a heavy user i need to charge my phone before and after work.
3) Stil have not seen a phone which can beat the xperia S solely on design. Cant comment onthe jeans part : p
4) This is no longer a SE phn. Its just Sony so expect much better reliability.
If I was you and have the cash I'd definately buy it.
Hope this helps : )

After I tried to reset and tried flashing nothing worked. Then I tried restarting the phone by pressing power button and hold it while pressing volume up for 3-5 secs(well other handsets I guess does not restart but will turn off the phone) and then I turned it on again and reconnected. Afterwards I never had an error message during the update from PC Companion. Hope it does the same to you guys=)

On sonyxperia blog, Sony have acknowledged that the error or problem why a lot of SXS users cannot download ICS is their fault. They immediately started re-releasing ICS and they even informed users to try right away to upgrade their SXS (at least those SI numbers included in the list).
I bought this phone today and its the best phone ever also somehow got it for very cheap :) !!!! trust me this is the best
This was the best update i have seen so far from sony unbelieveble what they did and it is quite big update about 362 mb and runs very smooth the sound cammera video has increase alot and some new apps i didnt reconice any lags or issues so far iam very satisfigth if you update your xperia s do it via sony update service pc companion dosent work well at moment it worth to update you wont regret it
[deleted post]I suspect the ICS that I am trying to upgrade my SXS for many times last night getting error message after 85% of downloading is technically not available yet in Sony's server despite PC Companion says "Update Available) because I have tried in our office today and I did not get the error anymore but it says "update not available" (at least in Saudi Arabia). I'll just keeping trying to check both through PC Companion and Sony Update Service.
