Sony Xperia S

Sony Xperia S is an Android 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) phone, powered by Qualcomm’s MSM8260 SoC (“System on a Chip”) which consists of a dual core processor at 2×1.5GHz and the Adreno 220 graphics chip.

Sony Xperia S has 1GB of RAM and a  4.3-inch display which packs a resolution of 1280 x 720 for an impressive 342 pixels-per-inch (ppi) density. The camera of the Xperia S is yet another impressive part of the puzzle — a Sony Exmor R sensor with a whopping 12 megapixels.

The Xperia S features a 1750mAh which will serve you for less than one day when used heavily. If you keep your Wi-Fi on most of the times and use lots of music, camera, video usage, then you would soon drain the battery. However, if you use it carefully, it can be used for more than a day and a half. The smartphone offers a talktime of 7.4 hours and standby time of 19.2 days.

The price will be €599 which is around $750.
