    I do accept as true with all the ideas you have presented for your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for newbies. May you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

    @Bhargava – you will be taken more seriously if you consider using less expletives. For every phone manufacturer I can find someone like you who thinks that they are the worst company in existence. However, I like the look and the specs of the models reviewed about and will be considering the purchase of the Xperia S.

    Two questions: You write – \While Xperia S doesn’t come with the external memory card slot \. I have read elsewhere that there is a memory expansion slot in the Xperia S.

    Also you write \Xperia S comes with the “Micro SIM Card” support only while Xperia S can house normal SIM Card too.\. Could you please clarify this statement.

    Yes, Sony Ericsson is GOOD Bich. I have experienced its worst quality and sevices it offer so called warrenty. The biggest Fucker,ass holes are sony ericsson. Now take a deep look at right or left to corner on screen. You will find some pixels are dead(It means they dont change color remains black, simiply black dots). That means bravia engine or some shit isn’t working or LCD is screwd(Manufacturing defect). I have given phone to repair with in 7days of my purchase(25 november 2011). They repaired and gave back the mobile on 24December2011(They say its will take not more than 10days well it takes 1 month). Now here is the fun We will have an battery indicator on home button. it should glow in (Green,Yellow,Red and White) after repair it glows(Sky Blue,light green) if you ask service guy he will say colors change due to display change(LCD replacement). When you get a call or you make a call, you can hear other persons voice but you cant talk(Your voice will not reach to destination person). When i go to service center show the problem they say that motherbord has to be changed(That means they have changed my display but screwd my phone mother bord creating new problem) Till date i have not recived my mobile phone(21 January 2012).
