many of you worry about Sola not having HDMI facility...
But it is replaced with a better one ie DLNA...
The difference between both is that HDMI is wired where as DLNA is wireless...So its better to go for Sola:)
The big hit of 2012 Xperia S has somethin to be defined and in search for an answer the phones released outside have a sonyericson logo but some phone released in india have no logo why is that....indian xperia have no updates released yet 6.0.A.3.6.26 is the older version and the new one is 6.0.A.3.6.73 Software updates can fix issues including; display problems, signal and connectivity problems, or, can help if the phone locks up or does not charge properly. but not in india so sad ya ...
Sony does have the volume less for the music out put in headsets but it depends afterall on the headset as well, if you see carefully the tip of headset have 3 lines or 2 lines the one with 3 lines gives you surround quality, but Sony gives you the rubber airtight plugins to give you the best sound effect notice that....cheers guys
it does not have front cameera...thats the one and only drawback of the phone.
