Xperia S videoThe Xperia S is the first Sony (Ericsson) phone that will be capable of 1080p video recording thanks to its 1.5GHz dual-core processor and Adreno 220 graphics. Obviously Sony Ericsson has been known for its great camera phones of the past, so the pressure is on the company to not only keep up with the competition in terms of imaging, but to be at the forefront.

We’ve attached some of the first Xperia S 1080p video samples that we’ve come across. The results look good, although not outstanding. The videos that panned over a landscape exhibited what looked like dropped frames. However, given that these samples are likely to be using pre-production firmware we’ll give Sony the benefit of the doubt. What we can say is that the audio seems to be consistently very good across the videos, picking out a lot of detail. We’ve also attached some 720p videos shot from the front camera of the Xperia S. These looked a bit soft to our eyes, see them all for yourselves below.
