got this phone in the uk with a 24mnths 3 mobile contract, have to say its a tad disappointing. The camera quality isn't that good, pics look somewhat yellowish, the battery life is below par i get about 10 hrs battery life and that too without much calls or texts for that matter the phone is in idle mode most of the time. The box had hdmi cable and 2 nfc tags :D. However if you are not worried about the battery life push the brightness bar to half way mark and you will fall in love with the screen, the 1.5 ghz processor works like a dream, everything is smooth as silk. The front facing camera does a good job in video calling. I would still recommend it over the S2
Guys Can I ask a question? I bought this phone 3 days ago. does your xperia S freeze when playing high end games from the android market such as samurai II vengeance or Brothers in arms??
I have had the sony xprsia 4 two weeks now the phone has got the same chip as the htc xe so its not the old chip at all.The chip is up todate for those peaple how want to know.The phone is really fast and fast on the internet and even fast still on wifi if you charge the phone from 1 percent iv notice that the battery is started to last longer. I i use to have the x10 and i really hated it be this one is the best phone that i have had up to now and i have had loeads so if yr looking for a really good phone this would be the 1 i would reconment to any 1 some take from you wont go wrong this be phone ever best sony phone ever i know iv got it
polishme, 19 Mar 2012galaxy s3 coming soon Polishme I like how you have put it,"the Samsung galaxy S3 is coming". The Sony xperia S is however "here" and is already making it present felt. The fact that you are also looking forward to the Samsung S3 would also underline your admission that the Sony xperia is indeed far more superior to the Samsung galaxy S2. I would be very careful also about the galaxy S3 rumour. Have you been reading how the ICS update is going and have you receive your update for your S2 as yet? By the way, to all the Samsung users who hate the Sony xperia S, if you were to push the votes down to 0(zero) its still going to get chosen over a pump up votes Samsung galaxy S2.
Kunzle, 19 Mar 2012Do anybody knows when this phone is coming to Tmobile UK?I've just ordered one online from Tmobile UK. The website still says coming soon but I spoke to one of the assistants on the 'web chat' thing and she upgraded my contract there and then, gets delivered weds.
I had a go with this handset a few days back. And i feel right now in the market its the best Android handset anyone can get. Im talking about the overall experience, i mean the user interface, hardware, looks etc. It feels quite unique in the hands. Not so broad, bulky or anything like that. Very smooth to use. Im just waiting to buy this now when it is available in Goa.
mangesh patil, 19 Mar 2012yesterday i bought this phone & its awesome.where did you get from ?is it released in india ?
its wonderful to see a phone that can beat samsung galaxy s2 so easily !
But i personally feel the design feels a bit plasticky and a bit cheap !!
I never imagined Sony produce such kind of a design !
polishme, 19 Mar 2012galaxy s3 coming soon Please get the hell out of Xepria S forum with your promote SG3 crap!!!!

got mine delivered last friday and i had 2 nfc tags in the box. fyi i reside in Sweden.
but just to make sure double check all the "hidden" compartments of the box, as i really had to look for my tags, they are tiny :P
I see lot of people complaining about the battery life. But isn't it true that Xperia S supports fast charging capability. I read that you can have almost full charge with 1 hour of charging. Can the XS owners confirm this?
If this is true then I don't think there is any need to complain about the battery life. I guess we can give the phone a break for 1 hour to recharge before using it again.
Just my thoughts!!!
[deleted post]Second that. I believe this could be cheap in manila, people there gotg so much money now, high end products are very cheap in manila now compared to some years ago when the stores were afraid to hav expensive models in stock. But now, filipinos buy everything expensive they can find and prices have fallen a lot, i believe the xperia s cud be very affordable!

[deleted post]Thank you for this.. It is easy to get lost here, with all the people who come to prove a point, instead of users who have used the phone and can impart their opinion on the phone. Do you think it is worth the money you paid for it? How is its multimedia capabilities?
