Cons
gingerbread,battery

I am very satisfied with this phone,having it for a month,and only dissadvantage is its battery that lasts 1 day.2 cores are enough to handle any program that exist for smartphones and all that talk about quads coming out is nonsense cuz there is no need for more cores.this is a smartphone not a pc,there are other things that are more important to develop.

Camera focus is dead slow for night time or low light level shots. iPhones and even other lower megapixel phones produce much better photos in general. When I compare my photos of an event, the quality is embarrassingly poor compared to those taken by my friends. I've tried various settings - it's the phone. Others have complained of xperia s focus problems too.
As the 'supposedly' excellent camera was one of the main reasons I bought this phone - I'm *extremely* disappointed. If ICS update doesn't fix this - I'll never buy Sony again.

Amazing phone with distinctive design. Like capacitative buttons and camera function by only pressing shutter button. Duo coreprocessor and internal memory will work well with ICS upgrade. Loved app when you link hdmi cable to TV. Great phone at reasonable price.

The Sony Xperia S is an awesome phone. The screen looks great and I love the 12MP camera.

Here's my <b><a href="http://wirelesscomputing.co/wad2">Sony Xperia S Cell Phone Review</a></b>!

Anyone get more than 1 day out of the battery?

Thanks,
Hunter

although this phone has only just come out, its not that expensive. its almost the same price as the samsung galaxy s2 but has more features than the samsung. a lot of companies are going to start bringing out quad core mobiles, such as htc, so this phone, while it has a lot of recent technology, its kinds out of date with the dual core processor. but for the price, its a top phone

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
