As a new season of Android smartphones launch to much fanfare, it’s worth remembering you can still get quite a modern smartphone for a great price. Try the Sony Xperia S for example, which today (with a coupon code) will set you back $298 (plus $15 shipping) from Mobileciti.
Two premium Android smartphones eye each other off nervously before entering into the Battlemodo arena. One sells itself on its insanely high resolution screen; the other on its insanely fast camera. Only one of them can be our preferred Android superphone — which one will it be?
The Sony Xperia S is a very attractive phone — I’m testing one right now — but users overseas have complained that there may be defects that cause a yellow tinge to come across its otherwise gorgeous 342ppi display screen. Sony Australia’s commented on the issue, which it says affects only a “small number” of units.
The Xperia S intrigues me. It’s Sony’s first phone since breaking up with Ericsson, packs a 1.5GHz CPU, 12MP camera — and though it runs Android 2.3 right now, should get Ice Cream Sandwich before June. Maybe that’s why Sony can’t pin down an Aussie date, despite booking a briefing with Giz next week. The highlight: a 4.3-inch (1280×720) ‘Bravia Reality’ display, which at 342 pixels-per-inch, bests the iPhone 4’s 326ppi ‘Retina’ display.
Nobody’s ever really cracked the smart watch concept, but Sony’s new offering pairs with either the Arc S or Xperia S to let you check email and messages on the move without getting out your phone — and it actually looks pretty good.
For a long time now Sony has made some of the best cameras out there. Love the iPhone 4S camera? Yeah, because it’s got a Sony Exmor sensor in it. Sony’s two new Xperias are also pushing the visuals mighty hard.
