I have my Sony Experia S for a month now and I am impressed. The size of the phone was a bit awkward but now I am used to it and now there is no return.
If I see other phones with smaller screens it feels like I canít see. The performance is good and the battery life is good for me all thou a lot of people complain about it but for me it is good enough.
I must say so far so good. If I must say something negative that would be the camera is not what I expected but by saying that I donít say itís bad, I expected better.
The android interface is excellent and very stable and quick. Voice clarity is good and I have used the speaker phone and it could be a louder but I have managed to use it in my car with no problems.
My final word is that itís an impressive phone and the look is good and the phone feels solid but not as heavy as some other phones.
Great handset to be honest, Changed network mode to GSM only tho to be able to maintain better battery life, no major defects up till now for first 10 days usage.
Anyone of here would recommend Sony Experia S??
Beginner of using smart Phone..
akki_, 10 Jun 2012how is the pic quality of Sony S when taken in dark???
They're not good at all, they are not what the supposed to be with the 12MP cam and the "Exmor sensor" for night shots. i gotta say i am disappointed with the camera. i've searched for the prob in the web and have seen im not the only one with the problem, im just hoping the can fix those problems( useless autofocus, blurry fotos and full of noise) with the ICS update.
priya_ikbc, 08 Jun 2012Nope... you're not the only one.. Even am experiencing the same problem... mine is a month old... moreYes at nite it gets worst. I took some pictures last nite and they were horrible, the autofocus is useless, takes up to 5 seconds to focus and pictures are blurry. This the less thing I expected that could dissapoint me from this phone. Rite now I miss my Arc's camera, it's way better than this one. I hope the fix that in the ICS update too.

Right now my phone battery is at 84% after 12:09

You should have initiated your battery the proper way by charging it the first time for at least 16 hrs. Then you should (as I said time and again) let it (each time) drain below 10% before recharging and when you do recharge do it fully. It takes just under 2 hrs to recharge fully from under 10%.
That's mine, and its getting better day by day. I've got it for 5 days short of 2 months. Antutu battery test (471 when it was new and I wasn't happy then) places it way above say Galaxy S II. I need to test it again and I'm sure it would hit over 500!
My xperia s battery backup lasts for 2 days and 1 day working with wifi
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2012Battery life is very poor...without touch the phone its not working even not for 18 hrs.Search and read about how to improve the battery life on xperia s! Mine lasts about a week if not touched (i mean screen not waked at all), now see that can't be possible for the same handset, right?
AnonD-58202, 08 Jun 2012Anyone disappointed with the "12 MP" camera?? I just got this phone 3 days ago and t... moreI have SXS for 2 months now, I know there is noise in the pics captured by its 12mp sensor at 100% zoom (when viewed on other screens). It is a tradeoff for the crispness/ details captured with the tiny sensor. The pictures nonetheless are brilliant imo. Noise is worse in/by HOX & a bit less in/by SGS3.
It can be reduced by using better compression/ post processing of the raw image, meaning thereby, there is a scope of improvement. I'm hoping that ICS update might do it, yet I believe SXS camera to be the best out there till date!

The battery life is better than most other 2012 android smartphones, lasts 1.5 days on single full charge with moderate use! Try to find out what is eating ur battery so fast (using battery usage) and fix it Or upgrade to latest .76 firmware Or Replace ur unit (if faulty).
