The first Xperia NXT series from Sony, this phone comes with an usual candy bar looks and a large screen with three tiny Android buttons under it.
Xperia S use old TFT LCD but still can produce a sharp and colorful images it’s all because Sony implemented this Xperia with mobile BRAVIA Engine.
12 Megapixel camera on Xperia S is another point for this phone, even the user gets full controls for taking image and video like Exposure Value, ISO, Focus Mode, Metering Mode and White Balance (manual or presets).
Sony gives this phone a dual core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm MSM8260, which is a great processor for this phone because there is no lag and stutter, and fluidly running all Xperia S features. The battery last for two days in light use, i think the processor does not making the battery suffer a lot.
Xperia S got Android Gingerbread 2.3.7 on board and some other pre-loaded apps from Sony.
Sony Xperia S is a media-based smartphone, it is great for watching movies and listening to some music, the processor did a good job so there is no lagging and the browsing activity will flow smoothly, and the storage can be extendable to 32 Gb. But if you prefer a good looking and stylish phone and more performance or much better display, you will not take this phone as your first Sony-brand smartphone.
