yesterday I tried the xperia s phone and I can say it is one of the best phones available now but every one should should know some facts : in game performance part of vga power is used by the hd screen so when comparing the xperia s with some of lower resolution screen phones the xperia s might lose.
the 12 mp camera is on the top of the market of course only second to 41 mp nokia phone but as most of xperia phones due to small camera sensor the image will become grainy if you watch it fully zoomed unlike the galaxy and iphone.
but what really was very annoying is the 3 small touch buttons,below the screen some times you need to press twice to do the job,and to be fair I gave my friends to try that and we all had the same issue but of course this issue will disappear after ICS update because the buttons will not be needed.
things I liked in the phone : top built quality better than previous xperias ,nice design and the phone can stand on its side by its own so taking photos while you are in it became easy or watching a movie with friend is also a joy.
the screen performance is great with nice black colors and good out door visibility.
the pressing of the camera button while the phone screen is off will take an image in less than 2 seconds.
and lastly I liked the earth moon live wall paper.
This is the best android phone up to date, with good camera and display quality. Sure Galaxy s2 is still a better phone than this but s2 is a year old phone now, and Xperia S did a great job for being so close with the magnificent s2. But this would surely suck in terms of specs when s3 comes out, and Nokia 808 for it's camera, so i'll just enjoy Xperia S' moment while it still last. Sorry guys but imho, this is a phone that should've been made a year ago, then this would be the best.
montmelo, 30 Mar 2012Agreed.... the best phone to date...best phone till april 2nd, next monday.
saeen, 29 Mar 2012I bought from Batha, no such issue with me. @saeen Yehey! I bought my Sony Xperia S last night and I bought the full package at Sont World Batha Riyadh (SAR2,399). I decided to buy the full package of SAR2,399 than the SAR2,100 because the full package is in fact cheaper. Accessories included are: car charger, the normal charger, HDMI cable, screen protector, headset+ear bud, 2 pcs NFC smart tags, Sony USB portable power supply, 6 months Internet 1GB per month, 50 SMS per month, 50 MMS per month and 1year Sony warranty. I spent almost all night last night to play my white Xperia S, lol. All I can say is that Xperia S is a gorgeous smartphone from SONY. The screen is incomparable and really gorgeous. Built is perfect really sturdy and very nice to hold. Browsing the internet is amazing you can read even the smallest fonts are truly readable without zooming. Camera is fantastic and the video. Bravia Engine and Exmor-R lens works really well. Lag-free thanks to its 1.5 dual-core processor that makes blazingly fast. I really love the screen because colors are so vibrant really unbelievable. Every single penny I spent for Xperia S is really worthy and NO regret at all. Highly recommended to all!
klaudio, 29 Mar 2012Sony leading in the camera technology? Check out the Nokia 808 Pureview or just the N8 release... moredifference with camera is Sony use Exmo-R technology, so the photos are better quality. Reason why Arc S from Sony Ericsson won camera phone of the yr last yr from EISA. N9 was available and didn't win the award even though they had a 12MP camera. Reason being the technology and lens you use is more important than just how many MPs it has. Now you have Exmo-R, 12MP. Well done Sony

DylRicho, 30 Mar 2012That camera on the Nokia Pureview will never produce good pictures. So many pixels on such a s... moreWOW this is a very desperate comparing.
Dude, you do know about Technology what Sony use?
Sony and Nikkon is the leading camera brand.
More pixels will not say it is better.

first interested to buy this HD marvel of SE. sold my new neo v and purchased on 1first release. But deeply annoyed with some aspects like the 3 function keys they way function. second no memorycard slot and the built in memory of 32 only 25 is acceessed by the user. Third just 1 week before the release SE promised this marvel phone will be update with all other xperia releases of 2011 to icecream sandwich And-4.0, but now they are backtracking for this & say you have to wait to end of 2012.This is some bad business ethics of compay like SE.
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2012True but check out the camera, 12MP! Sony still leads in that part.Sony leading in the camera technology? Check out the Nokia 808 Pureview or just the N8 released 1.5 years ago...
