Sony Xperia S

 

Sony's latest flagship Android phone is a HD screen, 12MP camera packing monster. But is it all bark and no bite?

Simple comfortable design, HD screen is great, Good overall performance

No expandable memory, Camera is way below expectations, Screen and design don't quite set our hearts alight

Sony waves goodbye to Ericsson with the first phone of the new era

Powerful and fast ; Good stills and full-HD video ; Decent media/app hubs

Mediocre design ; PlayStation bits disappoint ; No Ice Cream Sandwich

Sony Xperia S

 

Design, build, audio and video playback, library of content, plenty of apps and features

Strange on/off button placement, music lacks a little life

Fine video performance, spec and features; it's easy to recommend the Xperia S

Sony Xperia S

 

The Sony Xperia S is the flagship handset in a line-up from a newly refreshed Sony Mobile. With the Ericsson branding swept aside, Sony is striving forward with a new range of devices for 2012. It's perhaps too simplistic to slam Sony Mobile's flagship...

Distinct design, high resolution display, good camera performance, NFC, stable

No microSD card slot, battery not accessible, no Mac support for file transfer, doesn't seem to make huge steps forward

It's perhaps too simplistic to slam Sony Mobile's flagship handset because it isn't running on the latest processor hardware. Device performance isn't governed simply by hardware, there's a huge dollop of software in there too, even if top-notch...

Sony Xperia S review

 

HD, movie-watching greatness ; Crisp and clean OS ; Standby to pic-snapping in 1.5 secs ; More power than most ; Handy inclusion of smart tags

Slight rattle in the build ; Vital daily recharges ; No Ice Cream Sandwich out the box

Smart, stylish and specified to the eyeballs, Sony's Xperia S is a serious rival to the iPhone 4S

Sony Xperia S review

 

Goodbye Ericsson. Can the Japanese powerhouse go it alone?

Fantastic screen ; NFC capability ; High quality camera ; Premium build ; Large internal storage

Easy to drop ; No microSD slot ; Slightly poor battery life ; Fat chassis ; Only Android 2.3

Update: We've taken a better look at the NFC capabilities of the Xperia S and played with the SmartWatch in a bit more depth - check out our findings.

Sony Xperia S review

 

The highlight of the design is the transparent strip of plastic along the phone's bottom, with its own white backlight. This strip contains the Back, Home and Menu symbols in a stylish way but does present a problem. It feels natural to tap the icons...

The Sony Xperia S looks good and packs a decent set of hardware components, including an excellent screen and camera. Aside from the standard Android complaint of abysmal battery life, the phone is let down by its main control buttons – a triumph of...
