Sony Xperia S review
The X-peria S has a very premium build quality.Xperia S seems to have everything in place - good hardware, excellent built quality and design and a very good display.
Processor:Qualcomm MSM8260 Snapdragon 1.5GHz dual core , 1 GB RAM ;
Display:4.3-inch LED,1280x720 pixels;
Storage:32 GB on board;
Camera:12MP with 1080p videos;
The glass deftly conceals the display below and it’s hard to see its boundaries once it gets switched off.It sports a beautiful design and comes with some big upgrades from last-years' models like 12MP camera and 720p display.There are a few strange design choices here though. Firstly, the rear has a small Sony Ericsson emblem on the bottom, unusual considering the two companies have now parted ways.
Below the display is one of the most interesting design element, not just on this phone but on any we have ever seen. It’s a thin strip of see-through glass that separates majority of the phone from a thin plastic chin at the bottom. Floating within the glass you can see icons for the three main function keys – Back, Home and Menu – but you don’t actually press the icons to actuate them. The actual pressure points are placed above the glass strip and below the display and indicated by three tiny dots.
Sony Xperia S comes with a 12MP rear camera with f2.4 aperture, along with 1080p video recording support. As you can expect from Sony, the Xperia S camera performs brilliantly and takes some nice and detailed shots. Be the indoor clicks or outdoor shots, Xperia S does not disappoint.First off, the hardware key will take you straight to the camera, even if the phone is locked.Camera is placed bit far at the top.Can take 3D panorama shots as well.In night videos, you'll get a whole lot of noise and the zooming effect isn't very smooth either.
On the right side, you will find the two-stage shutter button, volume rocker, and HDMI port, while the left houses the USB-cum-charging port.
Battery placeAnother disappointment with Xperia S is the fixed battery. Although the back cover is removable, the battery is still not user-replaceable.
