Works fine on my Acr S but I have timescape and other bloat ware disable so they never come up running when u force close then. My arc s runs fine and I love the new feachers.

I think SONY should roll out all of their new phones with ICS. Anyone who knows a site where to buy these phones unlocked?

What more Xperia Arc as it has lower CPU (1ghz) against Arc S with 1.4hgz. Hopefully, 4.0.4 is far better than the 4.0.3 that Arc S got before.
