Summary: I got the phone in January and to be honest I have mixed emotions, I get really angry at the phone because it is way too laggy but it compensates for this by having truly outstanding sound quality. I know that the phone is quite cheap because that RAM is very expensive and that if the phone had as much RAM as the LG Optimus Nexus (2GB) or at least the Samsung Galaxy SIII (1GB) then it would be at least £100 more expensive.
Pros: Great design, great sound quality, great camera quality, I love the exploded overview and the (if you increase the brightness level) very bright screen.
Cons: Way too laggy (not enough RAM), hate the fact that there aren't settings in the notification bar (like there are with Samsungs) ,I don't really like the music player app because you cannot swipe the screen across to change song, you cannot change the volume from the screen and there isn't a way to check how many songs ( if you want to check then you need to download Realplayer app WHICH IS 30MB).Also the battery life is quite short if you use is frequently.
Sony Xperia S - Sony Plunges in with a Crystal Clear Phone

Excerpt: "...part in the market as Sony wished, then this device would clearly be towards the top of the pile. The beautiful display combines with a genuinely attractive device that outdoes Apple and other Android competitors. But looks aside - can the Xperia S keep up? The new Gingebread processor is fast, and allows for seamless transition between a reworked user interface, which shows drastic improvements from previous models. That being said, an occasionally ...
Pros: Beautiful screen, fantastic camera, fast processor, large hard drive, Android apps
Cons: Glass screen will scratch easily, not very robust
Summary: I bought one of these for my wifey, got a great deal ($580) and it's suprisingly good! She's very impressed with it. Arc S has same shell but is upgraded over the older Arc. Good hardware design, it's good looking, slim and light, has a curved back that feels very nice in the hand. It's actually comparable is size and slimness to my Samsung Galaxy SII (the king of phones at the momment), 8-megapix camera takes some sharp as shots and they look good on the 4.2" screen.
Summary: I have been using the phone ( which I picked up for £90.00 second hand) for about 2 months and as I spend most of my day in the office I can charge the battery whenever so that being my only major fault with the handset I am very happy. Stunning photo's, good sound, superb display.
Pros: Good looking, fast for single core, excellent camera.
