Hello friendz...
I was recently used Samsung Galaxy S2 , Galaxy advance & galaxy ace plus....also used nokia N8

My Findings are.....
*You can upgrage your Arc s to android 4.0.587 (latest ultra speed)
*Really fast phone....(1.5 ghz)
*note that only single core processors are efficiently using apps to their cores since all apps in android sucks of transferring execution information to single cores..(now a days)... we can hope for 2013 for efficeint multicore apps......
* so single core processors with greater clock speed is really fast (world fact) in the case of android mobiles...
* but windows phones efficiently uses both cores but lack of apps & games..
*The camera quality is awesome....(quality grater than i phone & galaxy s2) but technical aspects are different....
*Multi face detection up to 5 faces...powered by exinor chipset....
*The super phone available at this cost.....
*a lot of custom roms & moded
*Watching video is awesome in HD bravia LED screen....
*if rooted & installed Link to SD...we can move all apps to sd and now i have installed more than 370 apps in my phones + hd games adrenaline 7 hd included...
which was not possible on my galaxy s2.....
*Superior sound quality & xperia x-loud......awesome crystal clear sound...
*we dont need to buy a digital camera...(i was using Nikon SLR camera) but after bought this phone i always used my phone....because it gaved brigher photos in dark conditions also.......
*rooted my device & can conect USB pendrive,mouse....etc...

Really awesome...I love my Xperia arc S
now class 10 32GB memory bought for it...

I had my Xperia arc S upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich but afterwards i can't seem to find the list of available WiFi connections, thus i can't connect to the secured ones which need passwords. Any help? In the settings i only am able to turn WiFi on but not choose which specific connection to use T_T
