Sony Xperia S unboxed, in the flesh!

When I arrived at home a couple of days ago, I was surprised see two units of the Sony Xperia S waiting for me. The folks from Sony Mobile Philippines sent in a unit and then our friends from Widget City also shipped in a review unit. We’re unboxing both and will be using them in the next two weeks and share with you some results along the way.

I already wrote my initial impressions of the Xperia S over at TechWireAsia (where I contribute on a weekly basis for Asian-related stories) last night but will be adding a few more notes and samples today as I get more hands-on time.
One of the first things you will notice on the Xperia S is the brilliant high-definition display. With a display size of 4.3-inch, the screen resolution is 1280×720 or 720p giving it the highest pixel density we’ve ever seen on any handset at 344ppi, even beating the 326ppi Retina Display of the iPhone 4S.

As such, you get really good picture quality, superb clarity and crispness. You’d definitely notice this when playing HD videos. Sony claims it can display 16 million colors.
While this flagship device did not come with the quad-core chips that’s being touted by many other manufacturers during the recent MWC, the Xperia S still boasts of a pretty capable hardware configuration that can take on some of the other flagship handsets like the Galaxy Nexus or the iPhone 4S.
