The Sony Xperia S is the current flagship of the Xperia series. It comes fully packed with a 720p screen and a whopping 12MP shutter. This is also the design trend for the rest of the Xperia series handsets.
This handset shipped with Android Gingerbread and we all know that the latest Android iteration (the Ice Cream Sandwich) is now out and that a lot of new handsets are pre-installed with one. But then again, this should not be your reason in ignoring the Xperia S. There are tons of features that you will enjoy on this handset and soon the Ice Cream Sandwich OS will also land on this handset.
One of the factors why this phone is a must have is its affordable price tag. Unlike other new-fangled flagships this handset is quite easy on the pocket. Today, you can get this handset at 470 EURO or $616.84 USD. You can also choose to get this under contracts and the cheapest plan is roughly at 22.46 EURO or $29.47 USD.
Let's talk more about other juicy features of this handset. The phone measures at 128 x 64 x 10.6mm and it weighs in at 144 grams. It comes in with a pretty big built-in storage at 32GB. This handset will let you enjoy its 4.3" LED backlit LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1280p and a pixel density of 342ppi. It comes in with a scratch resistant glass for its screen protection. You will also enjoy the phone's Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine and Timescape UI on top of its current Android Gingerbread OS. There is also the phone's whopping 12MP shutter with a resolution of 4000 x 3000 pixels and LED flash with auto-focus. Video recording is done at 1080p at 30 frames per second with continuous auto-focus and video stabilizer. The phone ships with a 1.3MP front-facing camera which can shoot videos at 720p at 30 frames per second. While other flagships are equipped with an 8MP shutter, this handset is heavily packed with a powerful 12MP shutter. Again, for its price you are truly getting an amazing handset with awesome features.
What's more is that this handset is not just all about its amazing screen and superb camera; it comes packed with features that no other mid-range handset can compete with. One of these is the phone's NFC features. With this handset you will get two smart tags (in the box) and an app support as well. You can place them wherever you want and make your life easier.
