Looks perfect.. Whenever X S gets Dirty use a rubber and make it look as New

Strange that there a very few reviews from the big names (GSM Arena, Engadget, etc), seems that Sony haven't sent out many press models.

Posted by dibdin
GSM Arena should be giving their review anytime soon now. Not sure of the others.

Hello to all.

I am a new user of this forum, but I have been reading all your comments for a long time. Thanks to that, I finally decided to get a XPERIA S.

Yesterday I went to the Sony Store in Barcelona around 7pm, and I got the last one they had in black. (They still had like 6 or 7 in white).

I have to say that my first impression when you turn on the device is.... The Screen is Fu#@ing awesome . My previous phone had a Super Amoled screen and I thought that was the best we could get from a mobile device. I was wrong.This one is georgous. The details, the colors, the images look so real as if you are looking through a window...
Overall haven't got time to try anything else. I'm still waiting for the microsim to arrive.

But another thing I really like and I want to say is that the clear cristal antenna, works as a notification bar and turns on when you got a notification. (It's not as cool as the Xperia U, but works quite fine).

Last thing I want to mention, the Spanish Edition of the Xperia S cames with the following items in the box:

-Xperia S
-Charger
-HDMI cable
-2 Smartags
-Headphones
-USB cable
-Screen Protector

If anyone wants to ask anything about this device, feel free to do so. I will try to answer all your doubts.

Before I had one in my hands, I thought it was a good phone, now that I have one, I think it's a great phone, and despite the fact of not been the BEST in hardware like other models presented in the MWC (4core,41mp camera), I love the design and the screen.

See ya later.

So they don't give any headset? What about normal ones, do they work?

No, they don't, because of the different audio jack. You should buy iphone headsets in order to work.

Wish this was the Retail box for the Xperia S. Its so much cooler

Sorry I forgot to write the headphones. I have updated my post.

In any case I am not going to use them, because they give me for free the Sony MDR-ZX500.

Benares out.

I got the last one they had in black.

hey bro my congrats! it must be great pleasure having such a great phone with you
have you checked the music player? can you tell something about the sound?
and how the notification bar (when you touch the top bar on the screen and wipe it down) looks like? does it have any shortcuts to different app or functions?
thanks in advance,

I paid 599€ but because it was the first units in stock worldwide in Barcelona, I think I've paid a little bit more. (But I got a 60€ Earphones as a gift).

Online shops are talking about 500€ as its real price. Arriving around the 10th of march. At least that's what they say here in Spain.

@Benares

Can you please comment on the audio quality of the phone ? Would be great if you could compare it to your previous phone and/or some MP3 player.

benares,

There have been some reports that the capacitive keys about the transparent element are very much hit & miss, how have you found them on your phone?

Thanks. The capacitive buttons seem to be only major gripe at the moment.

That review was terrible. I much prefer the other guy that does them unboxings. That guy in that video he mumbles to himself all the time & wastes time in the video not knowing what he is doing. Useless. Looks nice though!! Funny free sweetie gifts in the box

is the audio jack different to other phones then? ive got an apadaptor in my car to play through the headphone jack but its a certain size

Posted by Arne Anka
What other phones are you comparing with ?

It is same as IPhone and HTC for instance, but different than older SE phones.

Had a look at the dummy model (white version) earlier today. It looked really nice and not that much bigger than the Arc.

I'm always whining about how slow these phones are to get here to DR

Gosh! Android has not got the same love here. BB is leading the sales yet. I think I'll get to see the XS in late Q3 or early Q4.

Posted by Bonovox
Oh I never clicked on it. Just asked at Sony store near me they said they are not sure but when all new spring stock comes in in April they might stock phones.

Just seen white dummy model in Phones4U. I have a question. Is the white one matted or glossy body?? The dummy was matted and I would worry for dirt sticking to that. Phones4U doing half price Urbanears white headphones with it

It has an Anti-Stain Coating which makes it easy to clean.

Posted by Bonovox
Well,in the real world we shall see how that adds up. Cos these so called anti finger print coating on screens do not work. And would it not wear out over time?? The Phone Arena review says the anti stain coating never worked. Anyway positive review although the photos look good full size it is still in my eyes not a huge improvement image quality wise. Night photos were poor. And there is still alot of fuzzy colour noise even in daylight at crops. Oh well I sign off from the Xperia S

I've seen alot of idiotic cases in camera reviews.
Like Eldar making cr..ppy shot with Arc which had nothing to do with it's real quality.
And than I took amazing pics with it.

So I will judge when I have it, tuesday.

There already some differencies in opinions between websites like speaker loudness.

Posted by Bonovox
Speaker loudness we heard in Tracy & Matt video review it sounded loud
