btw i would like to ask some qns as i am new to android.

I realised that these few apps such as email, gmail,messenger and google+. They are automatically sign in when i click on all these apps.

I would like to manually type in password when i click on all these apps due to privacy purposes. can these be done? how?
lock your apps with password

or logout all the apps after use

LOL joking la. like u say where can pick the best. JUST lucky to have a good set. I believe whatever u buy depend on luck. Whether it is car, laptops, etc there is bound to have some tat have problem. For my case, XS is really good no defects so far. BOI, I highly suggest u send it back to service centre and make a big hoohaa, likely they will do a 1 to 1 exchange. To me ur set really have problem hope u get a better set soon and enjoy XS

mine have abit too.. at the bottom and the right side of the screen. But must turn on brightness to max and white background then look very closely to see it. Think i should go down ask for exchange too? XD

The issue with the yellowish tint seems to be rather prevalent. XDA forumers are also reporting the same thing:

[Q] Xperia S' screen problems - xda-developers

Some are speculating that the problem lies with the glue that is used to attach the screen layers (just like on the SG2 and iPhone) and will disappear over time.

Let hope so, this phone deserve alot of attention. So far, it is one of the best out there.
Anyway, hoping ICS coming soon and cross finger that it will help lengthen the battery life even more.
I saw this just now, is this true?
from pocketnow;
"The reason the battery only lasted 8 hours is pretty clear looking at that battery stats picture (Look at the blue bar just above the 'Display 41%' stat).
The phone isn't going to sleep either because there is a bug in the firmware (similar to the ARC when it first launched with the camera preventing the phone from sleeping) or the reviewer was listening to music for 80% of the time."

Just tell them all the problems u got from the phone and c what they can do for u. The best option is change a new 1. Then if they dun want, say that the phone give so much problems and then u r disappointed with SONY. lol try to act sad and angry.
