Question: When this phone gets an ICS upgrade will the onscreen 3 software buttons not show because the Xperia S has the same buttons as hardware?
How does that work for ICS based apps that would have placed their settings button (the 3 dot crazy roaming non-intuitive ICS feature) on the right hand side of the three software buttons?

and it s not that expensive , only HKD$ 2980 with the data plan, so happy,, i hv finally got this dream mobile phone,,,,,,,,, Lmao
I bought this phone 3 days ago and I wasn't comfortable with 4.3" screen. I think 4" was best. Its awesome phone no lag no hang very fast. UI is clean. Overall nice phone n yes power button is at top so get a hand strip so it dont fall. Its a nice phone for day to day usage browsing taking pictures (outdoor). Phone doesnt feel cheap plastic come on n its not very light so u ll feel it in ur hand. I recommend this phone.

Great phone absolute a phone that could challange Galaxy S2, Galaxy Nexus, iPhone 4s, i my self own GS2, iPhone 4s alredy But compared them all. The Sony works fine. Only thing I say is bit bad is of course battery time if you are active user. I had to charge mine twice a day. Good thing with my galaxy i got extended battery kit. Witch lacks both from iPhone and Sony. But camera is the best you can get on Android device atm. It could have been a little bit better in my opinion. Since its supposed to be Sony flagship. Great but not the best
It's a superb phone. Really awesome. Only disappointment is not so durable. Made of soft plastic, not good for rough use or keeping it in jeans pocket.
just tried the Hd connection software thingy with my TV......WOW. works with just about any TV brand.
Having fallen out of love with Sony Ericsson some years ago I REALLY wanted to like this first Sony solo....and I almost do.
The screen is excellent, The volume from the internal speaker is also excellent The call quality is excellent The design features at least a little originality The battery life is OK (the battery may be hidden behind a fixed panel that's not that easy to remove but it's a normal battery and CAN be replaced with a little effort) There's no memory card slot (but there's 25GB of available memory internally) The camera is very good (by no means excellent though at present) The software is old but an upgrade to ICS is apparently due around April The sim free cost is reasonable (though contracts seem less so)
So far then a very nice phone I'd be happy to own.
But next comes the three virtual buttons on the bottom of the handset. Above the very nicely illuminated icons are three tiny silver dots. These are where your finger should touch to activate the relevant button. Worryingly hoewever they rarely work first time. In fact sometimes they work better if you touch just above them, sometimes to the left or right of them, and sometimes right on the dot. To be stabbing away at my premium, high end Sony phone like some demented morse code operator is not what I had in mind when I opted for such a "high end" phone.
I hope it's a software issue and I hope Sony are fevering away right now on a fix. If not it's going straight back where it came from. Oh well, fingers crossed for a solution or it's back to Samsung or HTC :(
