Yes. He is right. Switch to GSM ONLY and my battery didnt drop much overnight, that is more than 6 hrs or ard there.

I can reproduce this defect 100% of the time anyway.

Note the last picture where the launcher looks the same as what we have now. I hope they can change the launcher's design or whatnot....

true haha, i hav an xperia play, n i tink even after upgrading to ics, the overall design (home, icons, ui) would look the same, but only with added ics features.

gone through some searching, n i've actually installed the apks extracted from xperia s, n now, my Play has some of the cool looks from XS, like calender, music player, home, tools widget, phonebook, call log, etc.

Didn't drop much is about how much? My battery drop 3%/hr on idle mode on WCDMA preferred/GSM but have just changed to GSM only. So trying to have a gauge.

Yup same. Tried it out just now, very unreliable performance on my XS. On default sensitivity, more often than not it doesn't work. Didn't try the other sensitivity settings before uninstalling.
i use the easy detection setting

My advice will be..

Don't worry too much abt the battery usage...

We buy a phone to use...not pay money to buy worries...

It's a fact now smart phones are battery hunger devices...that's why we call them smart..

lol

True, when you get Dual Core processor phone, you already worry about the battery life and indeed that our Xperia S has a better battery life compared to Samsung S2 or Note so imagine when your processor has been upgraded to a Quad Core and your battery technology cannot catch up with the processor technology and speed.

Busy busy busy busy x.x

Anyways, if you guys want something else other than the 'Xperia Home' launcher once ICS hits all the platforms, use either Nova or Apex Launcher

Nova is slightly lighter (Nova Prime is the paid for version), Apex has slightly more features than you can get. You can rename homescreen app names and change the icons on both launchers

Should you have the knowhow and are capable of replacing the Xperia Home launcher with either of these (IIRC, I'm using Apex myself), you'll be able to bring the previewed widgets onto the homescreen effortlessly

Anyways, the announcement of the Xperia L w/ ICS was announced earlier than I thought it would, thought it'd be announced slightly later in the week

Anyways, look forward to ICS
