Sony Xperia S vs. Samsung Galaxy S II: S-hootout

 

Released nearly a year apart, the Sony Xperia S and the Samsung Galaxy S II are not that different - both are flagship droids with dual-core CPUs and 4.3" screens. But the newer Xperia S brings some fine upgrades, like the 12MP camera and the 720p screen.

Sony Xperia S review

 

Has spring 2012 brought a rebirth to the Xperia range, or just a rebranding? On the face of it, that's an easy one. The Sony Xperia S (codenamed "Nozomi")

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

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.

Sony Xperia S preview: Game on

 

In staging their grand return, Sony Mobile could've done a lot worse than the Xperia S. The fresh divorcees are back on the market, their new Xperia flagship kindly supplying the bang. And while the HD screen and dual-core processor are not exactly...

Sony Xperia S (unlocked) review

 

When Sony unveiled the Xperia S at CES 2012, many Android fans in the know dreamed that this ultrastylish handset could herald a new beginning for the company's mobile electronics. That's why it was even more exciting when Sony announced that the phone...

The Sony Xperia S flaunts an eye-catching design, Android 4.0, and a connection to Sony's large movie and music library.

The Xperia S has quirky capacitive buttons, slow 3G data, an uninspiring screen, and a pokey processor. Its $559.99 price is also steep.

Sony's pricey, stylish Xperia S is packed with multimedia tricks but is undone by a slow processor and lackluster display.

Sony Xperia S review

 

The Sony Xperia S is the first product to emerge from the newly consolidated Sony Mobile group. Although it'll inevitably be treated as the bellwether for Sony's attempt at going it alone on the...

Attractive, distinctive design ; High-definition display ; Strong camera performance ; Good voice clarity and reception

Ships with dated software ; Color banding may spoil display for some ; Still no good reason to care about PlayStation certification ; No microSD card slot or user-accessible battery

It's not thinner, faster, stronger, or in any other way better than the pack

Sony Xperia S Review

 

The Sony Xperia S is something of a smartphone stepchild: the first smartphone to bear Sony's sole brand in recent years, but developed under the loving care of the Sony Ericsson partnership the Japanese company bought itself out of. It certainly ticks...

The Xperia S finds itself launching at a tricky time for Sony. The company is partway between developing its own phones, entirely separate from Sony Ericsson of old, and between the last gasps of the ill-fated partnership. That tumultuous cradle shows...

Sony Xperia S Review

 

Sony is starting fresh after 10 years of marriage with Ericsson, and thus the Xperia S marks a whole lot of firsts for it. It is the first handset branded simply “Sony”, as well as the first with the new “Iconic Identity” design of the renamed Xperia...

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 ; Strong loudspeaker with clean sound ;...

The capacitive button dots are hard to spot and not very responsive ; Sealed battery compartment ; No memory expansion slot

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 Xperia S Review

 

Sony really needs to push the ICS updates out of the door, very quickly. The Xperia S seems to have everything in place - good hardware, excellent build quality and design and a very good display. However, Sony needs to get the UI sorted. When compared...

Premium build, Fits well in the hand, Excellent display, Lots of internal storage

Camera behaves badly during night shots, Timescape UI feels boxy, Needs Android ICS update quickly
