SONY XPERIA S !!! :))

GREAT PHONE , GREAT SPECS !
I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A PHONE THAT CAN KILL ANYONE WITH LOOKS .
Unfortunately ..no phone in the market could do that ...but but but after seeing this phone i can assure you even if you are not willing to buy this phone , go and have a look !
this phone is out of world ..its a piece of art ..

many PRO'S lesser CON's

PRO'S
* SUPER LCD SCREEN 342 PPI !! ( NO OTHER PHNE MANUFACTURER HAVE REACHED NEAR IT )
* VERY FAST PROCESSOR 1500 MHZ !
* LOTS OF ram 1024 MB !( MORE THAN THIS IS NOT AT ALL REQUIRED )
* 12 MEGAPIXEL CAMREA ! ( NO OTHER SMARTPHONE HAS IT )
* SCREEN SIZE IS PREETY GOOD ( NOT BULKY LIKE SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE )
* BATTERY IS OF lithium-polymer technology WHICH CHARGES THE PHONE IN HALF THE TIME THAT OF ANY OTHER PHONE ( WWOOWW ) AND 1750 MAH IS NT THAT BAD AFTERALL .

CON's

* NO MEMORY EXPANSION SLOT . ( AFTER GETTING 32 GB OF INTERNAL MEMORY , DO U REALLY NEED ANY MEMORY EXPLANSION SLOT ?? )
* CAPACITIVE BUTTONS ARE HARD TO FIND ( DONT WORRY , AFTER IT GETS UPDATED YOUR PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED .)
* ITS GINGERBREAD !! ( "ICS" IS ON THE WAY )

THATS ALL ...if there are any other pro's or con's do reply .
we will love to know .

Wow.. :)

This phone is definetly going to make you speechless the first time you take it in your hands.. I was a Sony fan but my last phone, a xperia x10 mini pro was almost useless. So bought this with a bit of hesitation on April 12 from Sony store.. A week long usage has proved to me that this is an excellent phone and truly one of the best from the Sony's camp after a long time..

Pros:
*Superb and unique design..
*The highest pixel density screen in market(Beats the iphone and the new ipad)..
*Also this is better than the AMOLED screens in some aspects. Mobile BRAVIA engine makes video viewing a pleasure..
*Great cam.. Ability to take a snap within 1.5secs is very handy..(Other phones should follow this too)
*32Gb storage space is more than enough for most users(technically around 26gb is only available)
*Processor and chipset supports almost all the games in the current market. Until energy efficient quad core processor based phones are available, going for dual core ones should be a wise decision..
*I am not a big fan of customised android ui. Although this version of timescape UX is clean..
*Sound quality is great with the accompanying headsets. Sony has added a lot of customization options to the Music player which is great..
*I havent got the firmware update yet, still battery is sufficient for me. Comes to around 45% after 15 hours of normal usage..
*Supports GPS and GLONASS. Acquires a quick GPS lock when compared to my previous phone..

Cons:
*Read a lot of reviews that say that the capacitive buttons take time to get used to. Still battling with them each day.(Probably have to wait and see)
*Little worried that the distinctive glass part might crack on fall..(Still havent found a good hard shell in the market for this phone)
*No way to switch between playing songs without waking up the touch screen..
*Although call reception is good (bcos antennae in glass part), the wifi reception is not exceptional..
*When all the current phones come loaded with ICS, Xperia S owners(me included) have to wait for the update. And I have to say as a x10 mini pro user, I havent had a previous good experience in this aspect..
*Moving out from the SD cards is a drastic step which might not please many. Although a good news is people can connect their external usb storage(thumb drives) and access their media via a cheap OTG connector(Havent tried this yet)..
*Although marketed as playstation certified in some parts of the world, playstation store is not yet available for India..

The bomb

Well this is a phone everyone should be looking forward to.
The specs are something that all knows, the thing that matters is the bonding between the software and hardware.

The sony xperia S has an awesome timescape UI, the experience is out of the world, the integration of the social networks with the user contacts is presented in a very detail way.

The battery life of the phone isnt that great. Most people are paranoid as the battery cannot is not detachable, but yeah if one wants to change it, he can easily do it as it is just fixed with 4 screws.

The looks of both phone colours are awesome. The cover is made out of a genuine secret technology rubber which also has a polygon coating. . to prevent marks and aging. Due to this the white color xperia s doesnt get the finger print marks like the arc s.

Yeah sony has a very fast loading camera, its a BADASs.

The translucent strip gives a very trendy look to the phone. Although, it doesnt change color according to the background like the xperia U. Maybe sony didnt include this feature coz it already has a low battery back up.

I have the onex and the xperia s, frankly speaking go for the xperia s, coz there is not much that u can do better with a quad core in the present app market and the user xperience is almost the same with xperia having a better screen.

Lastly the HDMI port, well the bravia engine renders perfectly renders into a 42 inch screen.

Not to forget, it is also a play station certified mobile not tested that yet but should be good :)

The Smartest Smart Phone

The best smart phone in the market. I waited for the Galaxy S3 reviews.. but when I found Xperia S better than those > I bought it straight away. I feel happy about the decision. The phone is awesome in looks, the special features are
1) GLONASS - 3 metres accuracy + position gets locked instantly
2) Hinglish key board + swipe - no other company provides this
3) Music Player- look and feel is great, downloads album art + "senseMe" is a great addition
4) there are many great apps and extensions that Sony provides (they can be downloaded or flashed but originality can't be matched)
5) VIDEO quality has no match...best in the business...plus BRAVIA ENGINE can be turned off when not used!!... (boo to people who say that bravia engine sucks up the battery)
6) Don't get fooled if some one says that it has less viewing angle...cos I have many of my samsung fanatics reviewed it >>> no loss at all
7) And when people ask me how do u manage when it hangs (battery can not be removed) --- well press POWER + VOLUME UP...

its the best phone that fits into a guy's pocket... exactly what do want more that 4'3" ???
