The back of Pro is a fingerprint magnet, just as bad as the backpanel on Galaxy S, that is ugly!

SE, Please remove the buttons they are so ugly and the silver color peels out after a while. I looks so cheap :( That is my only complain but the phones looks promising. :)

I used to be an SE die hard fan but 4 years I didn't buy any SE phone because of the poor, old fashioned, recycled and ugly designs. I hope SE will be back in their former all days.

Common SE!!!

I'm digging the Xperia Pro. Always want a sliding qwerty keyboard.
Everyone at XDA will going to be busy...very busy.

It's a real pity that SE have decided to give up on mid-range, numerical keypad phones. I have an SE C902 and I guess I'm stuck with it, because I don't fancy the competition (I've tried them all) and I don't want a touchscreen phone, unless it were very small (like the LG GD880 mini, which looks and feels great, but is a bad phone). From what I read, lots of other SE fans feel this way, so why is SE ignoring us?

Se introduces its most innovative and high end phones in this event like other brands.but it doesnt mean they dont introduce mid end candy bars in the future.they know that their candy bars and slide phones are popular among their the way these beauty xperias arent affordable for every i bet you se will produce some new mid end phones in some months later.they know how much popular se elm is as were k800 k850 k750 etc.

Sony ericsson disappoints me more and more everyday. Please don't say I'm a hater. I used to be a SE fan and had a T290, K300 and R306.

The problem is, SE has neglected the low end and ultra low-end segments. Sure, Xperia phones are awesome, but where are those phones for calling and texting? Now I have a Nokia 3600 Slide, and Ican't find a similar phone in SE. And if I find one, the price is not the same. And as you gop down, you'll find very few models, if any.

Right now.. my personal opinion..

2 LG
3 Nokia
5 Apple

where is sonyericsson..... is on 6 place..Luckly with all excited fans here. Me.. no more I am a excited fan.
I am not saying that New xperia family( Arc, Neo, Pro, Play) s**ks but they are not extraordinary phones with nothig out of ordinary.
Where is a manual equaliser (not presets) in music player?? Did sony ericsson manage to make one?
Vga front camera( 0,3 MP) when all the competition has 1.3 or 2 MP front facing cams?! Maybe is not that important for many people but in case of video call, quality is much better and you can zoom more or make HD chat with 2 Mp cam... so.. only VGA.
Where is the support and where are the (in time) updates for all sonyericsson product range?
Xperia Arc is X10 in new clothes.
Technologies such Exmor R and Mobile Bravia Engine are only marketing facts.. not something extraordinary.
All are mid-range phones.. and maybe will be all midrange phones with high-end phone price.. because Sonyericsson don't have a flagship to compete with other mobile phones producers...
This is the true Sonyericsson right now is fighting in the mid-range market, no more interest from for SE ...the highest battle.

Sony Ericsson surely brought in some cool designs and features in those new phones, but i am disappointed in the quality of how the phones look. Ever since they left manufacturing products in France, their phones became crappy in how they feel. I am a huge fan of sE, but i am disappointed because i was looking for a phone called or rumored to be called the X12, yet it did not show up yet, MWC is not over yet, so maybe SE will have a surprise up their sleeve. Anyway, nice phones with nice features, but i have to say the quality aspect of the phones has decreased in comparison with the P series and the like. I miss the P-series, i wonder if it will ever come back or the people who designed it will make a newer version. I hope so :)
