I am willing to buy this phone but there are several comments related with hanging problem and battery issues. Any idea of it is a general issue with this phone or a specific device unit problem.
nick, 05 May 2012xperia s is much better than sIII sIII looks uglier its nt worthagree !!! agree !!! agree !!!
i somehow agree with FO it is not a pc that needs multicores.. as of now i want to get this :) and yep it has a better design than sgs3.. design matters a lot for me.. iphones and samsung somehow have similar designs in their designs.. cant even distinguished which is which
advice, 04 May 2012bla bla bla ,you are completely wrong and what you said is illogical . did u watch the videos... moreNow Now, don't cry just because he hurt your feelings, and plus some of the things that he mentioned are true. So he is not "completely" wrong.
ummm.... the phones memory storage is 32gb but what is the amount i can use
like the sony xperia p is 16gb but the user capacity is 13.... so i would like to know that what is the user capacity for this phone thank you
I bought this phone 2 months ago from O2 store in UK. After 1 month of satisfactory use, the display was having a problem of producing a yellowish tinge on the screen. O2 guys promptly replaced the phone as it was a manufacturing defect. Now, another month later, I installed some heavy duty games and it was working perfectly and now the phone is hanging most of the time and im not able to restart the phone even. Until Sony does somethin really worthwhile in the software front, im not goin to recommend it to anyone. Period!! I have to visit the store again..So disappointing!!

I've just bought the experia S as a replacement for a stolen Nokia N8 and I have to say that I'm deeply underwhelmed with it.
The battery life is terrbile - 1 day (and that's with manually turning off wifi when not in use) - N8 managed 3 with same usage pattern
Build quality is not great - the plastic back cover feels flimsy
The camera lens is in a stupid place when compared with the shutter button - if you hold it 'landscape' so the shutter button is in the right place you're very likely to have your fingers over the lens
The radio is a bit iffy (manual tuning is not very accurate and auto tuning misses strong signals)
As an Android newbie I find the application management (sorry, that should be 'lack of application managment') laughable - it takes quite a lot of gestures to kill apps via Settings, the unlock prcedure a bit long (press power button, swipe, enter PIN - there isn't a need to swipe)
The back, home & menu buttons are sometimes very unresponsive and the clear plastic strip with the icons init and the bit below that appear to be fairly pointless (i.e. phone longer and heavier than necessary)
On the plus side the screen is very good, the bundled headphones good (though lacking proper in-line controls) and the ability to write apps on the phone in AIDE will be fun.
On the whole if you are a happy N8 user (OK this might be a rare breed), I wouldn't recommend replacing it with an Xperia S.
There aren't even any religious reasons to want Android now that Symbian is open source
Is the 32Gb USB Storage? Or can we even move apps to the 32Gb. I felt really disappointed when I could not do that in my S2.
I think I kind of agree with FO2.. If there will be a diff. in performance bet. a Dual and Quad Core phones it should'nt be that much of a diff. bec. its not an actual PC which will be running particular softwares that would eat up Processing Speed where the multi-cores will come into play.. I'd say a single or dual core would be enough and this phone seems to be a good buy compared to the others with the same specs. Just sayin.. ^_^.

Quad core is of no real advantage when it comes to mobile CPU. Samsung has bee... morebla bla bla ,you are completely wrong and what you said is illogical .
did u watch the videos that show the performance of the s3 or did not ?
í m not able to connect my XPS to my samsung led,there is no displaying of TV launcher when i connect it to the TV with the hdmi cable which came with my cell???
rmx, 04 May 2012does it support track id??Yes, yes it does and even if you don't have a Sony/Ericsson Xperia Smartphone, you can always download on Google Play :)

Quad core is of no real advantage when it comes to mobile CPU. Samsung has been tryin to buy ppl into d idea that multicores are better than single or dual. But d truth is mobile operating systems aint still designed 4 such. So also the apps running on the OSs. So the more cores a phone has the hotter it will get since most of the cores are not been utilized, hence a waste of power; converted to heat. That is why SAMSUNG & HTC use bigger batteries to make u think it will last longer, but actually it's just to feed d hungry, power wastin CPU. U might see alot of benchmarks being posted indicating a better performance of multicores. But these are just "MACHINE PERFORMANCE". "HUMANS" are the ones who will use these phones not machines. In whatever way a machine indicates a better or faster performance of multicore over single or dual core, our human senses, especially d eyes, can't tell any difference. So what's d point of havin multicore. All u need in a smartphone is good architecture build up, & a single core can perform as well, even out perform a multicore. So the CHOICE is yours now to decide
i bought this phone 2 weeks ago
now it hangs a lot
is there any fault in my unit or is all xperia s like this
i was thinking about getting dis phone because of the.. can anyone help me out which to get between this and samsung galaxy s3? sorry for the noob question but does quad core have a big difference over a dual core? i dont know much about phones :/
