After taking a quick look at the Sony Xperia S in our hands-on video we thought you’d like to see the Sony flagship being reviewed so we’ve got the first video from our series here for your viewing pleasure.
The Sony Xperia S comes in white and black, inside a carton box which only features the Sony branding; interestingly, the good old Sony Ericsson logo survived. Besides the phone, the box contains a microHDMI cable (which is always welcome), USB cable for sync and charge, headphones, charger, screen protector and your usual literature.
Don’t look for a battery inside the box because the Sony Xperia S doesn’t have a removable one (even though we wish it would). However, the company has clearly taken design to a new level distancing itself from last year’s aspect. Given that it’s the first Sony-only branded phone on the market, the company has put a lot of effort in trying to adopt new design guidelines as well as different, superior materials which make it feel more premium.
On the hardware end, the Xperia S packs a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch 720p screen, twelve-megapixel camera with mobile-Exmor R backlit sensor, 720p-capable front-facing webcam, NFC support, HDMI-out, and 32GB of internal flash storage.
