    imageThe Samsung Galaxy Note was the first to use GLONASS technology, but now the Sony Xperia S is set to have GLONASS support too.

    The Russian equivalent to the US GPS, GLONASS works in pretty much the same way, the difference being that to you as a smartphone user, you are now likely to get an even more accurate GPS reception, in fact as accurate as 2 metres.

    It is explained fantastically in the following video from Qualcomm, the manufacturers of the processor in the new Xperia S from Sony.

Never knowing when to stop, he spends a lot of time coming up with ideas. When he does relax, however, he can be found out in the forest walking his Dog, down the pub or enjoying food at local restaurants.


  • In fact, even older Xperia devices like Arc and Play already were using Glonass in their GPS 🙂

    • That’s interesting, I wonder why it was not advertised as much for some of these devices, it is a real advantage.
