I think the Xperia S is a gr8 fone. Seriously waiting for it, now I realize wot I've bin missing since I got the dumbest smartphone called blackberry.
Just had a little play with this in the office as a test handset and albeit the handset is nice, the screen is nowhere near as crisp and clear as the Nexus.

I know benchmarks don't tell the whole story but how come if the xperia... moreThe reason why the Xperia S performs so much better compared to there Sensation XE, despite the screen resolution disadvantage, is because hardware is only half of the equation.
Software optimizations written by the Sony Mobile software engineering department makes much better use of the same hardware than the HTC development team did.

For the record, Beats is overhyped garbage
It is an awesome phone with better spec than Galaxy S2. 32GB is more than enough for everything (is is not a PC anyway).

Linsanity, 03 Mar 2012Yip, but TFT poor viewing angle is undeniable true, and stock earphone from sony is bad@Well that's your problem if you are not satisfied with stock one I am satisfied with one I got with my neo as I said before you can get better one from market if you want , as the point is phone capability of doing better than other's but its fault with earphones(well at least according to you). And when it come to viewing angles it is not much problem practically in real life as only problem arise when you go for show off or comparison.

Darknight307, 03 Mar 2012and what are u guys "Quadcore lovers" gonna do with a quadcore "cellphone"... moreAgree with you 100%. I would never change my phone for quad CPU. my Sony Xperia Arc S is not even dual and works great as fast as my Nexus.
and what are u guys "Quadcore lovers" gonna do with a quadcore "cellphone"? work with "Auto CAD" or "Adobe photoshop" on ur cell phone??? what do u really use ur phone for other than..calling of course..surfing the net..music..photo or video shooting..check ur mail...gaming & stay connected to facebook or twitter. all that can be simply done by only a single core & 512MB RAM...even Android itself as an OS it doesn't need more than this to operate fast. and here is a phone with dual-core & 1GB RAM which will make any app goes very fast plus a 12 MP cam captures photos from sleep mode to shooting in less than 1.5 secs which makes it the fastest phone in market. it's just not about putting in a phone the latest tech or specs. if u really need the quadcore or the 3 or 5 GB RAM in ur phone for ur daily life tasks...wait for the GSIII or HTC one X. but with all respect the Xperia S is not an old one..it's fits all the needs & even more for a Smartphone in 2012
