Sony Xperia S Smartphone

This one is one of the new kids on the block. Sony launched the XPERIA S with style and neat design in mind. It forms part of the Xperia NXT range and many would say this is by far and away the best in the series. I for one certainly agree. You must remember the Sony Ericsson phone? This is the successor to that phone, which was a favourite for many of us for many a year around two or three years ago.

The Sony Xperia S has many all singing and all dancing features but the first thing that caught my eye was the giant screen. Packing a 4.3-inch screen display this becomes a beauty when you may want to playback your videos, watch a YouTube stream or even go on the BBC iPlayer and watch a full length program in the same way you would watch television. What a wonderful way to pass the time on those long coach journeys going north.

The Sony Xperia S is an Android phone, so at your disposal are the thousands of apps that you can upload to your phone. However, I am going to say a little more about the fascinating display screen; it is a beauty with high definition technology. The screen resolution is also so tight and crisp that it is more than likely better than your television you are watching right now. The pixel resolution proudly boasts 1280 x 720 and that is sharp, let me tell you! I found the Sony Xperia S much weightier than the Samsung Galaxy Ace or the Galaxy S range phones but that would be down to its thickness. It is thicker than some of the Samsung slim line smartphones but it will still comfortably slip into your pocket with no trouble at all as it is still only just 10.6 millimeters in thinness.

The Sony Xperia S may be made entirely of plastic but don't let that worry you because this really is not a cheap looking smartphone and does not leave the impression of anything less than a high quality top of the range experience. The most wonderful feature about this phone was the slight curvature in its back. Apparently it is so designed to fit neatly into your palm. Well, what a revelation that is. You may find you will have to do a lot of charging on this phone as you will be using it a great deal.
