Sony Xperia S repels dirt and recharges fast
posted by Alan F. / Jan 26, 2012, 8:05 PM
What wasn't listed with the specs is the fact that Sony told Swiss web site PocketPC.ch that thanks to the phone's "UV-active nano-coating," the Sony Xperia S repels dirt and also protects the device from the everyday wear and tear that a smartphone faces. Another feature on the Sony Xperia S is the improved lithium-polymer technology that allows the device to charge in half the time of a regular battery. Just 10 minutes of charging time will get the Xperia S up and running for 1 hour.
The Sony Xperia S will be launched overseas in the second week of March with its U.S. cousin, the Sony Xperia Ion, rolling out in the second quarter.

Beats galaxy s3. While you people are hungry for big processors. Which is the only thing the galaxy s3 will be superior in But the other specs will be almost the same. for me this device is uber cause of dot switch. And ice screen sandwich its made for dual core not quad core. Sony is smart. Its like playing playstation 1 game on playstation 3. Love sony. Don't bring quad crap until jelly bean.

How does it beat the Galaxy S3... you don't even know the specs of the phone, or what it looks like. "ice screen sandwich" ... no quad cores on ICS eh? Nice to know you aren't a programmer or hardware developer.

I'd love to see you face when your XS will be lagging in front of the GSIII..

Boom guess what, the Xperia S has a better processor than the S2 which doesn't lagg. Both phones won't lagg, get over it. What is the difference between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S? Nothing really in terms of software because both don't lagg even though one of them is a single core.

Oh, Apple will just come out with the same things months later and advertise the heck out of it like they created it and were the first. Then they will get the Patent Office to issue them a patent on it and start suing everyone else that has had it for over a year by then. From this article it makes it sound like the S will not hit in the US and only the Ion. Is that true? I kind of liked the better PPI on the S over the Ion and the clear spot looked cool...although it looked like a point of weakness that would break. They both have true HDMI though which is great.

Well Xperia S sure can't beat the "king of phones" sgs2. Fanboys can dream too, right? It's funny how sgs2 don't have both of the above features and yet, the Xperia S have all the sgs2 features. It pretty "pathetic" (like you said) that we are comparing it with last years flagship against this years flagship. Oh wait, did I just say Xperia S is a flagship? Sorry, my fault guys. Xperia S is not even a flagship.

Galaxy fans defines blind love. Go to the galaxy s2 video review on phonearena and in the ending moments while the reviewer swipes through the homescreen you can see(not galaxy fans like i said blind love) the glitch. While there was no glitch in xperia arc. Windows phone and iphone both have proved that its all about the software stability.

Just tested the Xperia S, Android v2.3.7 Felt really light for 144 grams due to its weight distribution, and pixel density is very impressive Viewing angles are much improved VS the arc/S Changes in camera software include full on manual ISO controls now, which was missing in the previous Xperias Some changes on the lockscreen as well, where app shortcuts and widgets can be assigned =) Floating Prism (transparent antennae) looks much nicer in real life VS the photoes.
