Sony Xperia S
Advantages: camera & sound
Disadvantages: BATTERY, internet function, touch screen issues.
well, i bought this phone because i sincerely trust Sony as a manufacturer. I paid £314 for this baby which to me is VERY steep for a mobile. After careful consideration i decided to spend my hard earned cash after reading many positive reviews, as you do. The phone itself is impressive, but it should be for that price and with todays technology. Lack of wow factor is how i felt. You get all your standard features and to be fair the camera takes very good photos & the sound quality is superb for playing music on - typical Sony. But the battery life is terrible, i mean really bad.I have literally charged it 2 times in one day for at least 5 hours in total and at the end of the day it has ran out AGAIN! I think Sony have issues with battery life in general with there products, but you cannot judge them on that alone. The touch screen i feel is quite fiddly, you need to press the icons exact and with slight preassure and the back light doesnt seem to stay on for that long when operating.
It definately looks the business and i would say its main feature is the camera. Would compete with top of the range digital cameras.
However, i do feel Sony have rushed this product to compete with other makes such as HTC and samsung models. Im not completely satisified with the phone and will be selling it soon for a better one,hopefully.
Summary: snazzy looking, but feels rushed.
