Sony's Xperia S hits the right notes [Review]
08 Jun 2012

The Xperia S is well-equipped for entertainment, with an amazing screen, HDMI and good streaming capabilities. It looks good, but suffers a few knocks thanks to its bloated rear. Overall though, the Xperia S is nothing short of a revolution for Sony and one of the best Android devices on the market. I have no doubt in my mind that once the Xperia S receives the Android 4.0 update, there will be nothing holding it back from claiming the top spot in the hearts and minds of Android lovers the world over.
