Picked up the Xperia S back in June. Great design, love the transparent strip but the back was so prone to scratches. ICS is great on the SXS, but sometimes laggy. The home screen is also often laggy, especially after returning from an app. Widgets are also exclusive to Xperia Home, and can't be added to third party launchers, which is quite annoying. The battery barely lasts a day and runs out at about 5pm when used on and off from 7am. Also, the camera takes great pictures, when you see it on the phone (Bravia mobile.) When you transfer them to a computer, the pictures look very washed out. All in all, the SXS is a great phone, if with some cons.
