Announced this year at CES 2012, with some fan-fare the Sony Xperia S does pack some punch, in a time where really few handsets have come out and made an impression on us the consumer. Sony have built on what they know, but moving forward from Ericsson. The handset still looks distinctly Sony, with its curved back and plastic strip separating its buttons from the main screen, plus the S has a real solid well-built feel to it.
The main gripe people have with touchscreen phones is the slow response, luckily this is now being considered important by manufacturers and more time and resource has gone into this. Luckily for Sony their Xperia S is very touch responsive, something Sony is exclaiming about this handsets and it does seem quicker than many of their rivals. The S comes with a 4.3 inch screen which offers 720p HD resolution and showcases videos really well. It also has a 12MP camera which again is up there with some of the best.
Inside you will find a 1.5GHz processor and 32GB of storage, which is up there with many of the top of the range handsets available at the moment. It also has a HDMI-out port and NFC support. On the operating side of it, the Xperia S when it launches in March will come with Android 2.3, however an update to 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich, will follow shortly.
So far O2 and Three have stated that they will be offering the Sony Xperia S although other will probably follow suit nearer the time. There are other handsets out there if you cannot wait till march so why not check out some other mobile phone reviews.
