Summary: I really wanted a quadcore phone with native HDMI output but I could only find MHL output options. Not wanting to deal with converters and possible compatibility issues while traveling, I settled for this dual core phone with the HDMI output. After a few weeks of use I am very happy with this purchase. I have noticed a few hiccups while doing multiple processes, as I expected.
Summary: I really enjoy this phone, especially the camera but it has severe speed/memory trouble. It takes a while to load applications, my music pauses if something else is processing at the same time and the battery life is horrible. Sometimes it erroneously says I have no memory to update apps. It does have a decent power-saving mode that is useful (especially at night) and I recommend using the least bearable brightness level.
Excerpt: Nice design, ok quality, could be better, i dropped it from a distance around 1 meter and display cracked, awesome camera plus camera features. Battery is really bad, have to charge it 3 times a day. Multimedia is handled really nice with the native applications.
at this time not a better option to buy ...sony lags in updating their devices timely

Excerpt: xperia sl is good option but not the best option ...still have some camera low light issues not burst shot mode ...still no Jelly Bean out there ....one of the worst battery backup i had seen on this device like this ..which have some minor issues ....
Pros: better display, internal storage, 12mp camera, good performer
Cons: battery, worst camera at low light, Still no JB, sharp edge at corner a bit uncomfortable
Summary: Pros: - Elegant design - The construction material does not feel like plastic - The sound is excellent - The screen is beautiful, you can see it even in bright sunlight - Enough RAM for games and applications - Beautiful images generated by the camera (with good light conditions), not so much at night - Beautiful 1080p HD videos - Never generates lag between changes applications or screens Cons: - No slot for memory expasion (but 32 GB is enough) - The battery does not...
Summary: Really good phone , it has a good storage and it gets the job done Really good phone, its nice and elegant (One of the best looking phones I've had) But, the camera button is unresponsive and doesnt work for me , the battery is good enough to do the job , the phone wont connect to my usb port for my sterio , but its a phone and it works so its ok , but over all its a good phone but needs work (updated 3/3/2013)
Summary: The screen display is super cool, definitely best display quality phone in market, not "One of". The battery has no problem at all. It only takes 2 and a half hours to charge from 0% to 100% and it lasts for several days which is absolutely acceptable. This phone is stylish and runs application fast. For me, replacing battery is not an issue. As long as you know how to use screwdriver you are fine. It uses a standard battery under the back cover. DIY!
Summary: I got this phone because I wanted an unlocked international compatible smartphone that was a bit different. I had researched many different options, and I have always liked Sony products so I picked this up. Upon doing some research this is just an Xperia S with a factory overclock. It ships with ICS and supposedly come April we will be getting Jelly bean.
