I agree. battery life really jialat, not sure if its gonna be an ongoing problem or cus my phone still quite virgin. Already charge n discharge about 4 times liao still like dat. today left home at 9am fully charged, at abt 7pm battery totally flat liao. Another problem is the dust cover at the usb port. everytime i open gotta pry it open, damn scared it break
same same. When pull out that time the thing like very hard to turn away to plug in the usb port. so like don't dare turn like that.

It's the display eating up my batt.... What's the use of getting a smart phone when there's so many limitation? Brightness 5%, less widget, off GPS, of WiFi, off Bluetooth, dun synchronize +++++ might as well get use back my army non cam phone

Edit: all tat and the batt life still bad
Sony fake their specs alot... Batt, ram... Bravia engine off to save batt, camera see nth in bark room... Is it only my set or wat? Remember arc taking photo in a black box? My xperia s took nth in a black room.. ( Exmor R sensor)
don't just blame Sony. My old Samsung Galaxy S is a piece of sh*t the battery can't even tahan normal use. must off 3G to get 10 - 11 hours. Maybe can blame Android

lol everyone can have their opinion and this is juz my opinion... Haha. I'm a Sony fan, truly one.. In fact I'm anti apple... Tats y I bought xperia s like not long after its out.. Looks good on paper.. Perhaps it's juz my set, auto rebooted several times... Apps blackout after load (simple stuff like sms and settings) I noe the sample shows good low light video but bro, I own a set here... Doesn't show on my set... So, low light picture taking, apple did a fairly great job, ny xperia s took yellowish photo... Exmor™ R only for videos? And specs wise, batt 1750 -> 1700 and ram 1gb -> 600+mb... Y is tat so? Bravia engine, maybe it's awesome but due to batt prob, I'm not even using.. Waste of the tech... The quick launch. . Isn't really quick, I'm sorry... Maybe it's juz my set but I dun think it's worth spending so much for this piece of Sony.

If sony have fake their spec, apple and samsung also. Go to apple forum and see how people complain abt their battery life on the 4/4s. Just now i went out with a few edmw members and they also commented their samsung nexus battery can hardly last 24 hrs.

These are smart phones. These are not older phones. Older phones are for sms, calling, mms and have 4096 colors. Smart phones have 16M colors, u game, u web and u work on it. Any smart phones now that can last till the end of the day is consider very good.

Dark room...even my DSLR cannot cant take photos...

The reason why Apple did a good job in photo taking is because they set everything for u. U aim, shoot. Thats it. Xperia S is more of a cybershot phone. Play ard with the settings.

For the 1GB thing, u only got 600+ because the rest goes to the OS itself. Dun expect other phones that have 1GB to have 1GB inside too. Be realistic.

Not abt the timing, I noe it depends on user but 1750 mAh -> 1700mAh? I am charging 3 times a day... Like I said, maybe its my set or my setting.... Didn't arc s took photo in a black box? As advertised... In Singtel shop last time.. Using the same sensor, shouldn't xperia s be able to do the same? My dark room still have light from window, black box dun even have an opening...

Yes, maybe yours a lemon. My set got no problem and it should perform the same as Arc S using the dark box.
