Sony Xperia S Review
The Xperia S is another promising handset from Sony and it appears that the Japanese electronic giant is getting back in shape. The new smartphone packs a superb 12Mp rear-facing camera, Android 2.3 and NFC. It has a 4.3″ display with 1280×720 pixels resolution. The Xperia S is powered by a fast Qualcomm MSM8260 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, Adreno 220 GPU and 1GB of RAM. It also supports dual-band UMTS (900/2100) and quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900). Its 12Mp camera features 3D functionality, LED flash, zero lag shutter and 1080p video recording. Let’s not forget the 3.5mm audio port, Bluetooth 2.1 and 802.11/b/g/n. Of course, its DC charging port also doubles as a microUSB data port and its micro HDMI port is definitely a nice addition to an already amazing handset.
It weighs 144 gr, which is not so light and measuring 128x64x10.6 mm, the phone is reasonably thin. It’s easy to notice that the Xperia S has good materials with excellent build quality. The phone feels solid in hand; however some people may find that the USB port cover is a little awkward,the same goes for the HDMI cover. The headphones connector and the power button are located on the top, and the entire design is uncluttered and quite sleek. On the other hand, as the HDMI port, volume rocker and the camera shutter are located at the left-hand side, it may feel a little cramped. It’s worth noting that the Xperia S lacks any physical keys as they are integrated in the display.
