EH: We really enjoyed our time with the Xperia S and will miss it when it goes back, and that’s not something we say often. One of the things that bother us about this phone is that Sony had come really close to making the best Android smartphone on the market, but squandered the opportunity by making some novice mistakes. The phone should have had Ice Cream Sandwich at launch, the display should have been of better quality for a flagship device and the capacitive keys below the display should not have been so frustrating to use. These three things are the ones that stick out when we look back at our experience with the handset. Had Sony taken care about these we would have readily ignored all the other issues, which are pretty minor, to be honest.
