Summary: What the Sony Xperia S does, it does very well. Performance is fast, the screen is great and the camera more than adequate. Owners however will have to wait a bit longer to get the most from the Sony Xperia S, when the Android 4.0 update drops. It’s a wait that for some will be too long.

Summary: The Xperia S is larger and less flamboyant than last year’s Xperia Arc, offering rock-solid performance behind the highest quality display you’ll find anywhere today. The case could be a little more stylish and the capacitive buttons can be slightly awkward, but those issues are soon forgotten when...
