I havent bought the phone yet. My apartment mate just bought it. Right now i have a 3gs and note.What are your general impressions about it? Especially when it comes to the display and battery life, how are there?
(also what was your last phone, so we can see where you're coming from)
I am impressed by the phone to some extent . First the phone looks good but not good as the press shots sugest. And the curve on the back is barely noticeable from from front or back.but from slightly side view it is one of the most beautiful gadget. Back is made of soft rubber like plastic which has a great feeling when holding. Build quality is good which was problem with previous xperia arc. It makes my note feel like a cheap plastic toy.
Screen is gorgeous but colours look slightly less vibrant next to my note but they look more natural which very evident if you take pictures from both devices and compare it to real objects. There also seem to have more range of colours like some shade of yellow are indistinguishable in my note but clearly visible in xperia.viewing angles are also slihtly better but there is no blue tint like my note.
Camera is very fast and pictures are rich in detail.but i only checked on xperia screen not on monitor and in good lightning.13 mp may sound a lot more than 8 but i found no major bw xperia and note. One thing i can say is it takes picture very fast.
The highlight for me was sound quality when using headphones. I am no audiophile but you can easily hear diff between t and note.
On software side xperia customization looks very good and is fast.
My short review if you want to know anything specific feel free to ask
