I think sony didn't want to leave those electronic parts on the back cover because its poor build and if it sucks then it will be a huge issue, doing this (adding an extra layer) will ensure those parts are where they are supposed to be, but they should've done a better job with the back cover, thus making the phone thinner and a big lighter.

I think you get a few tags included in the box but I'm not 100% sure. It can also vary from market to market so I do not dare to promise this. Ask your dealer before you buy them separately.

so the iphone is pushing technology or at least they were at the beginning, then HTC then samsung and then the iphone again taking real advantage of 8mp backlit sensor, now HTC again is pushing technology, so I'm trying to understand if Sony wants to follow the steps or other or be a leader and push technology (not just copy what has worked to others, and not a good copy but a water down version)

You are absolutely right uli, but what I ve noticed by the amount of bloatware on the 2012 line is that SONY is trying to integrate their mobiles with the rest of their lines to the point that it becomes suffocating.
So for example all devices in the house will speak the same language, buy from the same media shop and share them between devices. Of course that doesnt mean that they are doing a good job, actually the opposite. They are doing a horrible job and I dont want to get in to details.
Innovating in the mobile industry is way low in their plans. They have a few "cheap" devices to pay the bills and the rest are all used to experiment with the Ericsson fan base.
Somewhere you had a list with the negative things about the S, I cant find it but please add GPS problems. It s been documented in a few sites.

Thanks for the reply uli, it s so sad when there are so many lists that point the bugs on these phones that we started getting disoriented. No it wasnt any of those, if I am not mistaken it was about the S, but it really doesnt matter anymore.
