Sony Xperia S

Channel5
4 October 2014
  • 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.

Sony Xperia S review

5 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The Sony Xperia S is the first product to emerge from the newly consolidated Sony Mobile group. Although it'll inevitably be treated as the bellwether for Sony's attempt at going it alone on the mobile front, this phone's design and development can rightfully be attributed to the former Sony...
  • Pros: Attractive, distinctive design, High-definition display, Strong camera performance, Good voice clarity and reception
  • Cons: Ships with dated software, Color banding may spoil display for some, Still no good reason to care about PlayStation certification, No microSD card slot or user-accessible battery

  • Conclusion: What can we say in the end, but to acknowledge that Sony has hit the nail on the head with the Xperia S. From the characteristic design decisions, like a transparent illuminated strip, through an amazing HD display, to the ultra-fast camera, the first Sony-only handset is a delight.
  • Pros: Very good photo and video quality, One second from sleep to snap, Quality HD display with ultra-high pixel density, Distinguished design with a transparent illuminated strip, Hearty 32GB of internal storage, Strong loudspeaker with clean sound, Good call quality, Rapid battery charging
  • Cons: The capacitive button dots are hard to spot and not very responsive, Sealed battery compartment, No memory expansion slot

  • Summary: The basics The Sony Xperia S is one of the latest Sony smartphones post the recent Sony Ericsson era. It measures 128 x 64 10.6mm and weighs 144 grams. The Android 2.3 smartphone (an Android 4.0 is due in the second quarter of 2012) features a 4.3-inch scratch resistant TFT touchscreen,...
  • Pros: There’s only so much that can be done with touchscreen phone design these days, but it looks like Sony has nailed it. The Sony Xperia S is a striking phone made distinctive by its clean angular lines and illuminating bar running below the display, which also houses the antenna. It’s a real looker...
  • Cons: Unfortunately with its good design, there are flaws. The Sony Xperia S severely lacks in grip. Its plastic body can easily slip out of the hands in a hurry: however the hand eventually gets used to the awkward grip. And it has to be said that the Sony Xperia S is hardly compact. Some buttons even...

  • Summary: Sony Xperia S is the first device by the brand, after its divorce, of sorts, from its long time partner, Ericsson. Powered by Sony’s excellence in the sound and imaging, will this phone be able to help Sony regain its position in the Indian market?

13 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sony Xperia S is a beautiful high-end smartphone at a mid-range price and offers a neat break with the Sony Ericsson brand. Integration with Sony's cloud infrastructure makes perfect sense and both screen and camera are exemplary. The Smart Tag trick is a nice touch too.

REVIEW: Sony Xperia S

Tech Digest
14 May 2012
  • Summary: Despite a few design hiccups, the Xperia S handset is Sony’s best phone in a long time. It looks great, with a HD screen that really shines. Sony’s re-skinning of parts of Android is sensibly handled and almost always useful, while the camera is among the best we’ve seen.
