AnonD-56230, 25 May 2012one of the dumbest phone i ever seen... not at all worth for 30K+... the two thing that is bet... moreStupid cmnts hre if skpe free service available why should think sim video call which charges high .....
I have been using this phone since last 3 days. Earlier I had Iphone 3 GS and HTC Desire S. This phone has amazing display, camera and features. Processor is fast and everything opens quickly. I don't know why some reviews say its hard to put the small plugs which covers the charge slot back in. Infact I like those plugs as they make the phone look more elegant. I don't feel the loud speaker is dum. Find it pretty decent and much better than my HTC. Headset are cool too.
I do face battery issues with it currently. Hoping some fix with ICS release on it next month. But I had similar issue with HTC which was equally bad.
Overall a gr8 phone. Loving it.
What is the SAR value of this phone? Some website state that it is 0.78, whereas others state that it is 1.30.
Anonymous, 27 May 2012"3.73 update, android update" does not exist.Buddy, google out "Xperia S 6.0.a.3.73 update" and you'll get it... I've updated my own cell then how cant it exist??!
And one more simple way to do it is connect your cell to pc via USB using pc companion software and you'll automatically get a update notification!

advice, 26 May 2012i used gsmarena photo and video compare tools and compared these phones: nokia n8 ,galaxy s3 ,... morewtf! do you have xperia s to compare it to other phones? this device is awesome. if u dont have then buy it and you will know the answer.
advice, 26 May 2012i used gsmarena photo and video compare tools and compared these phones: nokia n8 ,galaxy s3 ,... moreDude seriously??.. First of all, your basis of comparison/rating these cameraphones is flawed, coz the tools you are using are not reliable, read what gsmarena itself states:
" Since cameras are optimized to shoot real-life scenes and not charts, the GSMArena Photo Compare Tool isn't good for comparing exposure accuracy and dynamic range (printed black and white does not compare to a bright light source and a dark shadow)."
Second, as stated previously, for a valid comparison you need camera samples shot at same time(with same conditions).
That being said, you should do real life testing of all above cameraphones with same photo samples taken at same time and then rate them, if you are really interested. Else, stop such ridiculous comparisons!
Have a look at the N8 vs Sony Xperia S camera comparison link below and see for yourself how Sony camera beats N8 camera!
There are plenty of other neutral video reviews pointing SXS camera to be superior (or at least at par) with iPhone 4s (which btw uses Sony made sensor) and various other smartphones like HTC One X.
And about SGS3, we'll have to wait for its release for proper comparisons. I, however don't believe it will beat Sony as far as camera is concerned.
Weee, 26 May 2012how about its performance of the camera on low light or when taking pictures at night?.. It should be good. The exmor R camera sensor does a really good job at giving good quality photos at low level lighting.
i used gsmarena photo and video compare tools and compared these phones: nokia n8 ,galaxy s3 ,s2,iphone 4s,xperia s,htc one x,and one s and these are my results :
the best still camera phone is nokia n8 next to it and very close the s3 ,the 3rd place went to the iphone 4s.
the best video camera phone is the galaxy s3 next to it and very close the iphone 4s,the 3rd place went to xperia s.
this is the first time that i see a phone that can beat the iphone in the video recording.
also i would like to confirm that the one s camera is better than the one x camera but both are no match for the other phones.
Anonymous, 25 May 2012Plz tell me a 10k phone which is better! Lol.. i bet u don't even own it and are just trolling... morehey buddy, i guess another mobile phone competitor paid you to speak ill of this magnificent device!!
shame on you...
Weee, 26 May 2012how about its performance of the camera on low light or when taking pictures at night?.. Low light performance of the SXS camera is very decent for a smartphone. The details n focus is pretty good (better than most other cameraphones).. you can actually take very good night shots with the correct settings! There is a bit of colour noise though which i hope might be rectified with ics update. Day shots are excellent with rich colours n details. Overall SXS has the best smartphone camera performance imo! If u r looking for excellent low light/night photography then of course u need a proper Digicam/DSLR.
super s, 26 May 2012is this update avlabl in india,,,plz reply tnksYes, .73 stock firmware update is available in india. U will need the sony PC Companion installed in your computer with a good Internet Connection.
