I am gonna buy a new phone. I am torn between the HTC One s and the Sony Xperia s.
I want my phone to have lots of memory or a micro sd slot.
It should have a respectable battery life.
I plan to use it for atleast 3 years so the build quality needs to be exceptional, cause I drop a lot.
I also do heavy duty gaming and HD video viewing so the phone should handle that too.
I really don't care if I don't get ICS outta the box, only that I should be getting it sometime this year.
A Really loud speaker.
Also here in India it's not feasible to buy a unlimited data plan so cloud services will be pretty much useless...
I use a X10i currently for the past year.
Please help me to decide as they're priced almost the same.
Much of hat you described seems to be in line with the factors that the Xperia S had in mind. It has a fantastic screen 1280x720 HD screen, 32GB internal memory although no SD card slot. Ihave found it to have about a day and a half battery life with quite a lot of usage. Unfortunately you will not get ICS but will get an update through their Sony PC Companion in Q2 hope this helped.
