Very excited to see how Sony performs on its own. Betting within a couple of years, Sony will be challenging for top Android performer.

so the S3 on Sony beats the galaxy sII and even the nexus on ICS hands down?
not bad for a "crapdragon".
i thought i'd pass this first generation of Sony dual cores, but now i just might end up buying one ..with ICS, xperia s should be as smooth as can be

Then again, this benchmark is most probably ran on stock android, and if you're a viewer of this site, it's unlikely thatyour s2 runs on stock android.

If that is beating the Galaxy Nexus shouldn't the Rezound be getting around the same score?

Could be if only HTC could optimize their chips the way SONY does right now. . .
