"There’s no doubting that the matt black plastic back is very different from the shiny backs we’ve seen from Sony Ericsson, and here in our hands, the Xperia S is much more comfortable. Your fingers don’t slip from a hold, and the curved back helps to push back into the palm of your hand, letting the handset rest comfortably. That said, the curvature of the phone doesn’t mean it’s a ridiculously slim smartphone, sitting at 10.6mm thin, over a millimetre thicker than the iPhone 4S. While that doesn’t make it a brick by any stretch of the imagination, there is a fair amount of heft to the handset that may make it a touch heavy for some.
