sonyfan, 12 Aug 2012You're wrong in saying that the 1.4 GHz cpu is no good. Why is it that ICS is running smoothly... morethe ICS is built by sony for each phone! The interface in the arc s is somewhat difference! It is better! ( remember also the difference in the price!) But if you read the benchmarks you'll know what i am talking about!! ( adreno 205 with 1.4GHZ is nothing!)

Why is it that ICS is running smoothly on Arc S? While ICS on live walkman sucks, too slow and full of lags. I own both phones so I know the diff. I shouldn't have upgraded my live walkman :-(
Jean, 11 Aug 2012The problem is from repairing so you should talk to them before the time passed! anyway the 1.... moreThe live has basically been and gone in the UK barring one outlet. Second Hand will soon be only option. Is arc s basically the same chipset etc but just overclocked then? There's some live walkmans on ebay but they're mainly imports as live was only available in white on 3network and black on virgin. The black one sold for £89 eventually - was I gutted! Sony need to bring out a walkman version of xperia p or similar. That is something I would definitely get. Perhaps with a glowing 'W' at the bottom of the phone instead of the glow strip. We need a nice dual-core walkman phone to do the live walkman justice.

User opinions and benchmarks prove that also! 1.4GHZ with a single core and very big screen with adreno 205 in the arc s is no good at all! If the live will be soonly in the UK for 120 i recommend you to get it even it is for that price! You won't find a better choice! ( good processing power and excellent performance with that price!)
Jean, 11 Aug 2012You should do that because i think with no choices now you'll use that live for a long time! B... moreYes! The digitizer got replaced and after repair I noticed the screen was lifting up in one corner. So I told them to sort it out and that's when I got the phone back with the lcd problem. So now I have to use the phone in landscape mode for texting and certain web pages like GSM lol. Games are only just playable. For instance on raging thunder 2 there's a chat bar and I can only read one line of text as the left side of my screen has black line about 1cm thick. Im wondering if I do actually need a new LCD because when I push the screen back down the line starts to disappear . If I could still get this phone for £99 then I wouldn't hesitate in getting another but now it's £145 which is why I was thinking about xperia play for £130. Would it be worth my while getting arc s? I don't use front camera so that's not a problem. Does the 1.4 GHz work well or is it all wasted on the large screen?
[deleted post]It is the best handset in mid range droids and has everything you need in a high end device!
[deleted post]It is for 170$! I think i listened that it is 12500rp but as a Lebanese i don't understand IND currencies!
james79, 11 Aug 2012The lcd has lines going across the screen all the way down and the left handside of the screen... moreYou should do that because i think with no choices now you'll use that live for a long time! But that mean that you did broken the screen and repaired it but the repair wasn't done very well??
Live does not connect with My Phone Explorer
is there any other explorer with the possibility of sending/receiving msgs over pc.

( proved by benchmark... moreThe lcd has lines going across the screen all the way down and the left handside of the screen has a thick black line that cuts off some of the screen. It was damaged when the digitizer was replaced. Nobody in UK will do the repair for me as they say they can't get the part. They all avoid it like the plague even though I've seen the lcd on eBay. Some are saying that they can't guarantee the lcd is genuine Sony and because I got the original repair done in a Mobile repair shop it has voided the warranty. Do I need a new digitizer as well as LCD and would it be worth me having an attempt at fixing it or is it too difficult? The screen wasn't stuck down properly either and for some reason keeps lifting out of the housing near the capacitive/home buttons at the bottom.
