Summary: I love this phone, so much that I'm considering getting a back up when my current one fails one day. =) It's so not main stream - everybody has a Galaxy, iPhone, HTC... nobody I know has a Sony phone, let alone THIS Sony phone. =) The design is unique, it looks sleek and elegant, yet it is sturdy - not one to easily break because it's so thin. It fits my hand perfectly.
Summary: I didnt like it at all, I stopped using it after 6 months when I realized the it was not supported with TMobile. it works but data plan would be so slow. the other common problem, the buttons at the bottom of the screen is not responsive, the back case cover started falling after a month of use, and not fully attached, until I lost it, Loosely attached. the side charger cover is lost. the glow was very bad.
Summary: Good phone. I am using Galaxy Note 3 now and I have used this Xperia S for almost a year and half before giving it away. It was quick and very good looking phone. Even compared to Galaxy Note 3, it wasn't that slow either. However, glass was very fragile. Samsung phone glasses are very strong and seem to be scratch resistant. Xperia S started to show scratches on glass from second day. And back cover is very weak.
