Xperia S: What’s in your box?

by XB on 16th March 2012

in Accessories, Xperia S

The Sony Xperia S is now starting to show up in many parts of the world. The UK mobile operators have the Xperia S available despite sim-free stock being in short supply. Elsewhere in Europe, stock is also available in many countries. In Asia, stock is available in Singapore, whilst Malaysia should get stock from 21 March 2012. There’s been no official word on when India will get the Xperia S, but grey imports are already filtering through to dealers.

Now that the Xperia S is ending up in people’s hands, we thought we’d ask what accessories people are getting in their bundles? The UK SKU’s all have a HDMI included, but mobile operator O2 offers the best deal including both four SmartTags and the Sony Smart Headset. So then, what did you get in your box? Remember to highlight which region/carrier your Xperia S is from.

    You don’t actually need original Sony SmartTags. Here is a video (turn on the subtitles) on how to use any cheap NFC chip with the Xperia S:

    (I am not the author, just linking it)
    So if you are worried, that you didn’t get enough SmartTags with your phone, don’t be.

  • M Usman

    Sony Xperia S White via Phones4U on Orange – phone (lol) standard earphones :(, hdmi cable, manuals, usb charger, and an additional screen protector with cloth (one screen protector readily applied to handset). I’ve had this handset for a week now. I’m facing severe battery drainage issues. @Tej:disqus – can you please do another post and ask people about their battery life, Sony UK says they need enough feedback to provide a fix. Many thanks. 

  • Boyimace

    I got a new contract with o2 but didn’t get a headset? Only a voucher for the tags, wtf? Anyone now if I can still get them free?

    Hi Billbond

    What CPW store did you buy the S in?

    I got mine in the CPW store in Swords Pavilions and had no smarttags. They said I should call Sony. But Sony said it’s up to the retailers

    Both Sony and CPW refuse to provide them. I’m really pissed off

    Thanks a lot

  • Sandra

    Bought it at Wupti and got 2 smart tags

  • spatch

    Australia, unlocked via Dick Smith Electronics retail outlet:

    Standard Sony Ericsson headset;
    Micro USB cable + charger;
    2 x NFC Smart Tags (black + red).

    Interestingly, Sony has bundled a pair of their MDRZX100B monitor headphones with the Xperia S — not in the box, but both packages were wrapped together in shrink wrapped plastic. These headphones retail in Australia for $39.99, so I was impressed to get them for nothing. They sound ok, but for free they sound pretty good to me.

  • Sa7hvik
