Sony Xperia S review: NXT of kin

Sony without Ericsson. Xperia S a couple of cores short and a year late to the flagship party. Doubters may still have a point there but the Xperia S has more things going for it than against.



We didn't run into a situation where the available processing power wasn't enough, so for the time being the dual-core vs. quad-core argument seems like a matter of pride rather than performance. read more →

  • Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support
  • 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA
  • 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine; Scratch-resistant glass
  • Android OS v2.3.7 Gingerbread, planned Android 4.0 ICS update
  • Dual-core 1.5 GHz Scorpion CPU, 1 GB RAM, Adreno 220 GPU, Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 chipset
  • The competition will soon have phones with quad-core CPUs...
  • ...and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box
  • Display has sub-par viewing angles
  • No microSD card slot
  • microSIM only

Sony Xperia S

The Xperia S is well-equipped for entertainment, with an amazing screen, HDMI and good streaming capabilities. But those looking for more well-rounded strengths will be disappointed. read more →

  • 1280 x 720 LCD is perfect for movies
  • Decent performance and battery life
  • Brings Sony vibes (and media) to your phone
  • Chunky with weak build quality
  • Camera output is only superficially good
  • Sony ecosystem needs to be more cohesive

Goodbye Ericsson. Can the Japanese powerhouse go it alone?

There are still some niggles but we think it says a lot that when writing the pros and cons above, we really struggled with the cons section. This handset may not be cheap – and it may feel like a Sony Ericsson without the Ericsson bit printed on the front – but we are really impressed with what Sony has done for its first solo foray.



Is it worth buying? At £450 sim-free, it's not cheap but it is one of the better handsets out there and one that we found encouraged a few "What is that?" questions from iPhone owning friends. read more →

  • Fantastic screen
  • NFC capability
  • High quality camera
  • Premium build
  • Large internal storage
  • Easy to drop
  • No microSD slot
  • Slightly poor battery life
  • Fat chassis
  • Only Android 2.3

Sony Xperia S Review

What can we say in the end, but to acknowledge that Sony has hit the nail on the head with the Xperia S. From the characteristic design decisions, like a transparent illuminated strip, through an amazing HD display, to the ultra-fast camera, the first Sony-only handset is a delight. Given the above advantages, beefs that we’d consider a nuisance in other handsets, like the fussy capacitive buttons or the sealed battery, here seem minor. read more →

  • Very good photo and video quality
  • One second from sleep to snap
  • Quality HD display with ultra-high pixel density
  • Distinguished design with a transparent illuminated strip
  • Hearty 32GB of internal storage
  • The capacitive button dots are hard to spot and not very responsive
  • Sealed battery compartment
  • No memory expansion slot
