SE, 05 Mar 2012Hey, did you root Xperia S? Because it's UI is different from the original one.No I didn't, I just swapped the home launcher to Go Launcher instead due to its extensive customizabiltity
Also, I had the wallpaper swapped

The XP does feel good, but I've only held it that once for well under 10s
Will get to play with the XP again in due time, in maybe a few weeks or so, just not any time too soon
i hate this crazy samsung fan boys.samsung just tricked your eyes by samoled.unnatural colors etc.well you have to trick people in this business.sony is way ahead of sucking samsung.

Optimizatons play an important part in bringing performance out
On stock ROM, the Xperia S is faster than the SGS2, and has better battery life despite having a higher resolution screen
Speaking of which, the screen reproduces images in quality miles ahead of the SGS2, including whites
A more powerful GPU on a phone is kind of moot, considering games that look as good as Real Racing 2 run perfectly on the Adreno 205
Adreno 205 being slow? Name me a game that has managed to slow the Adreno 220 that didn't slow the Mali400MP down, benchmarks aside
To put things in perspective, the game Order and Chaos online runs better on the weaker Tegra2 platform than the Mali400MP, as can be seen when the LGO2x and SGS2 were compared side by side, despite the Mali400MP being the better scorer in benches. This is where Optimizations play a bigger part than just brute force alone, and the A220 lies inbetween the T2 and M400MP
You're just another one caught in the numbers game
one year old s2 is far better in tearms of speed and performance...sonys hardwsre is very poor..adrenno 220 is very slow compare to the quard core gpu of mali400mp...its3 times faser than adreno....best of luck for sony with this phone ..no memory crd slit what a shame.
Linsanity, 03 Mar 2012Yip, but TFT poor viewing angle is undeniable true, and stock earphone from sony is bad@I do not understand why view angle is a problem for cell phone. Do you plan to share your personal SMS, Email, Whatapp message to people around you on bus, on train, in hallway?
When you do share what's on your phone with your firend I think they will be close enough next to you to see the screen in an acceptable angle where this would not be a problem.

hey, im planning of buying xperia s
but i cant decide which is better, xperia s or s2?!
and what S2 can do that Xperia S cant!! please. please Help!
I dont mind the reflection when using outdoors because its your choice i mean you can always cover it a little or change your viewing angle. But what amazes me is the quality of the screen based on your picture specially the first shot. Really nice.
Marcel, 05 Mar 2012To any one who has the phone, how is the sunlight legibility?
ThanksShots of the Xperia S under direct sunlight (and an angled shot)
Handling the arc S with my non-master hand taking photoes is not easy x.x
Screen was set to 50% brightness
Maybe I'll take a few shots when exploring the desert if I get the chance to somewhere later this year =P
