Right now my phone battery is at 84% after 12:09
I used 3G data browsing for 20 min, a couple of calls and some 30 photos today.
Call standby 38%
Phone idle 22%
Android system 6% Wi-Fi 2% Android OS 2%...
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?

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).
with new update .75 battery life is excelletn, 2 days without any problem (whatsapp all day, wifi/3g all day, push mail, browser about 2h per day, 50sms/day, 30min call/day) better touch sensors (back, home, settings), slighty improve focus but still that is problem.
It's quite splendid. 5 minutes ago I just plugged the HDMI cable into a Panasonic Viera ... and I was ready to watch content on it. No problem whatsoever.
The battery runs for about 1 and a half, max 2 days, the speed is quite good and there's no problem with the custom interface Sony has built. Waiting for the ICS update in late June but till then, it's a wonderful phone to have.
battery life is poor but the handset and it's performance is super! The handset only lasts for a day and runs out at night. Like full charge in the morning and a dead battery at 11 o clock at night. Not so reliable due to the poor battery but yeah anyways. I just can't wait for the Android 4 to come out for this handset. But that won't happen soon.
Sony has acknowledged that a limited number of its Xperia S smartphone have issues with the display. Specifically, the display will take on a yellow hue when the phone reaches a certain temperature.
"Sony Mobile Communications has identified that the display on a limited number of Xperia S smart phones may show a slight yellow tint if exposed to temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit)," said the company on the matter.
Sony says that the number of affected Xperia S smartphones is small, and that owners that have noticed the yellow tinting on their devices should contact their local customer service center. Sony promises to fix the issue at no cost to the customer.

I'm disappointed in its 12mp camera because when I zoom in, there's a lot of noise. I haven't tried to display it in the pc so I don't know if it's like that because of the very high pixel density of the Xperia S.
i've checked this SXS spec on sonymobile.com it says it has memory external on it, but gsmarena spec says there's no memory external on this SXS..
Which one is true??
has anyone updated their Xperia S to ICS yet?? if u did, how was it? feedbacks please

Yeah, there is a lot of noise in pics..(which isn't expected in a 12MP cam) I hope they improve on cam interface in ICS.. and the noise is visible when you zoom the pic but otherwise it looks great.. Also in low lightened area, pics are frustrating... I hate to use it at night... Badly hoping for that update...
