veeru lamba, 22 Jan 2012sony has released awesum phones...bt the negtive iss dat.....no ... moreBut does it really matter so much?
Sure xenon light is brighter than led flash.
But better thing with led flash is that it lasts longer and can be used as torch/flashlight. With xenon flash its not possible because xenon will heat up and burns out in longer use.

Here is a scientific research paper:

Quote: "Statistical analysis of PPP [Precise Point Precision] results shows that the performance of
the combined GPS/GLONASS solution is superior to that of GPS-only solution."

And from Sony Ericsson itself:

Quote: "Sony partnered with Qualcomm to test the technology in San Francisco, finding that with Glonass and GPS combined, accuracy improvements of up to 50 percent could be seen. Better still, Persson claims that Glonass is only active in "problematic locations," remaining unused (and conserving battery life) in areas with adequate GPS reception. "

Anonymous, 22 Jan 2012GLONASS alone may be worse than GPS, but existing Sony Ericsson ... moreYou're very wrong here. Being given perfectly calibrated instrument and badly calibrated instrument, result of using both instruments won't exceed results of perfectly calibrated instrument. And if using both instruments simulteniously, then it will only lead to worse resuts.
