On the sides are tickets miniHDMI MicroUSB and conveniently covered by security flaps. There are dedicated camera button, power button, volume controls and headphone jack 3.5 mm jack.
A really absurd detail of Xperia S is at the back, which displays the top card SIM largest we have seen. At first we thought the Xperia S had no access to the battery. To our surprise, we abietrto the back cover to find that … the battery is integrated and can not be replaced. No, the entire back cover is removed only to insert the SIM because there is not even slot for MicroSD memory cards.
Nor is it something that frustrate the terminal or anything, but if the input card SIM had been at the top, for example, Lumia Nokia 800 , the same could have been removed detachable lid and drain a millimeter or two his thickness.
