Since when is a 4.6'' HD display less than normal? I do agree that Sony could do better, but this is fine.

0.3 mega front-facing camera is below par.
10 hour talk time are not spectacular, not to mention it drains faster on LTE use.

ICS soon to follow? That's what they said with LG Thrill. 4 months later, we're still on Froyo. I definitely won't buy another LG and will be suspicious of ATT update promises.

I believe it could launch with ICS in tow or if now it will obviously be updated soon enough. In regards to the Design since I own an Arc, I'm still kinda 50/50 on this one.

Y'all haters need to STFU.!!! It's still an amazing phone with specs that a lot of recent Android being released have, such as dual core, LTE, FFC, etc. The only thing it doesn't have is the newest Android version, but it'll probably be upgraded in the near future. I'm glad Sony dropped the Ericsson from its phones. This phone looks AMAZING and I would love to purchase it if I was an AT&T customer.

This is what is wrong with Android. The user are all about spec. This phone look great and I really don't see what so great about ICS yet. I am waiting for all the bugs to be work out first

Xperia S and ion will have GB in the demo models. Available in Q1 & Q2 and is upgradable to ICS maybe on its final model. To ICS fans, dont be disappointed because of its GB OS. It is still a demo model. IT WILL BE UPGRADED
