This phone seems to have the same problem when recording a video in quiet environments (so-called "cicada noise"), same with Xperia Neo.
I'm so disappointed about this cause I realy wanted to buy this phone. I don't understand why the putted a very cheap microphone in a phone which price is about 600 €. SONY makes mistake after mistake. So sad.
I hope they fixed that within upcoming phones.
P.S. sorry for my english
I reckon this dual core will be good for a 2 year contract. As I see it, quad core will only be needed if Android 5 (jelly Bean) brings in a proper desktop mode for tablets and 4.6" and bigger, high end phones to connect to large screens. My guess is that these 1st gen quad cores at Barcelona are not going to make the grade. To be proper desktops they need 2 gig memory. I also suspect they are missing key hardware and connections to dock properly and that's why the Galaxy s3 is postponed. It will have the connections and memory to go the extra step... I just want a phone to fit in my pocket and for me the Xperia S ticks all the boxes. What do you think?
pepeliit, 25 Feb 2012Oh man!!! Li-Ion 1750 mAh my gosh another phone that only last when you start working and last... moreWith 32gb of flash memory, I don't need memory card slot. If you do not like it don't buy it, it is not rocket science!
pepeliit, 25 Feb 2012Oh man!!! Li-Ion 1750 mAh my gosh another phone that only last when you start working and last... moreits a nice phone....bright screen,good cam....but the only big problem...is....that this mobile will never run high graphic game.....but if it runs it will run very slow fps.....due outdated graphic chipset adreno 220.......tegra 2 should be better....no doubt that its a best camera phone.....but it will outperform on loading heavy apps.....u can see the review of htc sensation xe....though it has less resolution than this mob then also it out performs......so my choice is to go with galaxy s2 still it will remain a flagship phone till the realese of tegra 3 mobile with quad core processor
I really hope they'll have a good turn-over this year, because smartphones like this should not become a rare attempt at innovation, but welcomed as a standard
Will wait for this device to launch & then I will decide between galaxy note & xperia s
This phone is already released at least in Sweden. It's available by 2 networks
Check their websites!
this phone doesn't just look awsome its specifications are awsome too! i am planning to buy it but it hasn't got LTE :(
Official release is slated to be in March 2012. Awesome phone, can't wait 2 try it...
Zephyron, 26 Feb 2012Correction, 20.8 GB distributed amongst video, music and picturesThanks a lot palm for ur details. Could u tell me about the video player, it's stock or new revamp coz Sony is bad at video playing can't support divx/xvid...
andi, 25 Feb 2012Any idea if the "music unlimited" and "video unlimited" of SONY is already... moreThe SONY Music Unlimited Service is currently available in Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Spain, United Kingdom, and United States. More countries to come.
DarkZide, 20 Feb 2012rELease the Xperia S.. So we can Xperience it!it has a 1.5GHZ DAUL Core... hehehe...
pepeliit, 25 Feb 2012Oh man!!! Li-Ion 1750 mAh my gosh another phone that only last when you start working and last... moreYet another one who jumps to conclusions without having hard facts in hand
Comment there is quite cynical in fact
Check the posts below on my comments on its battery life
It's not the best out there, but it's nowhere as hopeless as you make it sound
8h52min on browsing, video, text, phone, photo and music with screen on 75% brightness before dropping to 4% is good enough for me
Having 32GiB of internal memory is good enough for most, and the internal memory speeds are faster than any SD cards out there to support the high speed camera capture features of the phone, similar to the Galaxy Nexus. Using a slow to mid end SD card will just slow the phone down and drain even greater amounts of battery
If you're worried that much about storage space, just use BOX to transfer data onto the cloud. You get 50GBs worth of it with Android anyway
Even when 20.8GB of memory for purely videos alone, I can store more than a few movies like Star Trek XI, Aliens VS Monsters, an Episode of Gundam UC and 2 Episodes of Top Gear Season 18 and many other small video clips + my own video recordings in a mix of 720p and 1080p and top it off with well over 2000 pictures from my digital camera and place a music collection of 1700 pieces in
For the record, no SD cards are as fast as the internal memory of the XS, not even class10 microSDs
Oh man!!! Li-Ion 1750 mAh my gosh another phone that only last when you start working and last at the end your working period damn!!.
Hoping to buy this phone but it turns out to be another High powered phone but without Endurance. I hope that i am the one who is mistake my comment.
Btw are you sure it has no external memory card? another flaw for it
Thilanka, 24 Feb 2012guys is it true that we can't change the battery of this beauty? if yes then we have to throw ... moreyes i heard the same, its only the thing which tending me to think again and again abt buying this mob.
