Conclusion: Great design. Great screen. Great UI. Great camera. Great connectivity. Great phone. Specs are always only part of the story. In turn, no quad-core will be no problem for the majority of Sony Xperia S users. That the phone is so consistent in other areas is its real saving grace and one that users wouldn't fare badly dwelling on while basking in the phone's 720p, fast-capture, 12-megapixel, PlayStation certified splendour.
Pros: Classical design, Great HD screen, Fantastic camera, Attractive UI
Cons: Viewing angles distort blues, Capacitive buttons too close to screen, No removable battery, No expandable memory
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is an excellent phone, boasting an incredible camera, slick design and fast performance. Compared to phones of a similar price like the Galaxy S2 (to which it is currently similarly priced) it’s not quite as powerful when it comes to things like gaming, but its perhaps a more stylish (if slightly less beefy) alternative.
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 you see the phone’s super-sharp screen in action.
Conclusion: Sony?s first solo effort is a masterpiece, and a great way to enjoy movies, music, apps and the web. A sterling camera and desirable body round off an excellent Android mobile. We?re already looking forward to checking out the rest of the Xperia family.
Excerpt: Almost every smartphone review seems to begin “for those who don’t want an iPhone…” – the Sony Xperia S is different, requiring no excuses when compared with Apple’s overlord of mobiles. This is a phone for those who desire a usable, brilliantly adaptable and competitive smartphone, full stop – and that's despite only running the 2.3 'Gingerbread' version of Google's Android operating system , with the update to Android 4.0, or 'Ice Cream Sandwich', not planned until the...
Pros: Design, build, audio and video playback, library of content, plenty of apps and features
Cons: Strange on/off button placement, music lacks a little life
