Have to agree with the former comment, looks great.
The only thing IMO that lets the Sony handsets down is the Timescape UI, saying this its not at all a deal breaker as you can easily change it. If the Samsung S3 or a new HTC could make a handset this good looking I would certainly snap it up.
Failing that im certainly going to get this phone. Such a good looker.
Although the processor doesn't beat the 4S, the density (resolution too) and the multitouch melts my heart!
I hope it's sound engine is better than Arc S~!
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2012Will this Xperia S have Gorila glass? I see a mention about scratch-resistant, but not really ... moreit uses scratch-resistant mineral glass.
It's like the one used on watches.
nowhere near as strong as gorilla glass though.
it's better to use a scratch-resistant film on top of it.
Vitaliano G., 21 Jan 2012Led flash?, you've got to be kidding. Oh men, that is just wrong in this phone. Is just that h... moreYour right, it would be really better if this phone comes out with a XENON FLASH.. & then I guess it will be the BEST phone on the Market. :)

Teo, 20 Jan 2012I think we All need Quad core 5GHz, 1TB + card slot up to 100GB, Super retina clear black Amol... morehaha! and that will cost us $5,000-$10,000 USD with 10 yrs contract. people can't appreciate the new things coming. always looking for a better option even the unit they're discriminating at has not even been released yet. let's wait for the XPERIA S to be released first so that all of us can see what its performance is. i love this phone and for sure i'm gonna change my iPhone 4S by the end of the month then i'll buy windows phone to serve as my spare phone. i'll bid goodbye to iOS and RIM for now until they're back in the game again, i think i can live without BBM. =))
