not happy with the battery and the camera button is hard to function, should press very hard to make it work!!
Battery is very poor!!!
otherwise am very happy with the cell
pls suggest any ideas!!!! for the battery
if u need a better cam with super contrast reality screen,and cute design and a superfast 1ghz processor.then go for xperia arc.if u need bad and crap design with unstable amoled screen go for sgs2,
Today I got to play with the Arc for a little bit.
My first impressions,
Overall a very large phone, but rather thin, nice build quality, and it's not so "bent" as they would like you to think. It doesn't stand out that much.
Camera is way to close to the upper right corner, both when I and my friend who got the phone tried to take a picture our fingers were covering the lens because that's how you hold the phone, over the sides like a real camera but you can't. So you have to hold it more in the middle while trying to press the miniature camera shutter on the other edge of the phone, total ergonomics design failure! Pictures though looked ok once taken, and the processing speed was quite good.
Screen, large and very responsive but sorry, LCD is so old tech. Get your phones some Amoleds, do you hear me Sony Ericsson.
Thats it for now.
It runs Android, nothing special there.
I am getting 2 handphones for my children. I find all this technology a bit mind boggling. So for you tech savvy people out there, which phone should I give them (and they dont mind having the same phone) : IP4, Ericsson Arc or LG Optimus.
please do not buy the phone .please do not be fooled by its beauty. It has many defects i am telling you as i used it. The battery do not lasts more than 3 days. Video and pictures takes time to load. Audio quality is lower than even the lower end smart phones of sony ericsson. There is no video calling camera. Camera is good but the video recording produces poor pale colors such as pink insted of red sky blue insted of green, there is some duplicate frames also the videos are over sharpened and fast winding.

arc is really superb in its features n d cam clearity n display is mind blowing but d main disadventage is d mob gets heat if v take 5snaps n d battery packup is very very poor..i returned d mob by d next day of purchase..
I bought this phone 2days back and i am loving it..it is very fast,sound is good n the battery backup is better than x10..I would love to see arc in white color.
Can anyone else that actually HAS an Arc, tell me if you als already have small scars on the display after several days? And if so, does the handset have an additional, removable plastic layer to protect the actual (scratch free) screen? I'm not sure about this and I don't want to damage the display by trying to remove it. Please give your opinions, thanks a lot!

Two of my officemate got Galaxy S and the color is extremely over saturated and the result is that colors are no longer natural. I don't know exactly how to describe it but screen looks blueish or greenish. When both of us compare side-by-side with my Xperia X10, I still prefer the natural color of my Xperia X10. Even them, they claim that X10 colors are more natural than theirs.
Just got my Arc - opened the box and was impressed with the looks of the phone - it's a style statement. Have not powered it up - will post once I get down to it.
Can anyone tell me if this phone is available in the USA? If yes, then tell me how/where I can get this phone. I am just drooling over to get this phone. Reply soon.
jus hope SE doesn't launch other shades for d arc after a while.. i wanted black at first but now i know that d closest i can get to it is midnight blue. but still its okay AS LONG AS SE doesn't launch d black after i actually get d blue.. Dat would be SHEER DISAPPOINTMENT.
im, 06 Apr 2011I like every bit of the arc but the only thing thats made me think twice is the phone memory..... moreyou can't install apps directly to the SD-card, but once you've completed installation, you go to the applications menu, tap on the app you want to move, and select 'move to memory card'. Easy as 1,2,3.
Guri, 06 Apr 2011Go for.. Samsung galaxy S II - no phone better than this. it got Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex... moreAnd one should also be ready to pay a hefty amount of money to buy sgs 2 while Xperia Arc is available for much-2 less price.

Samsung phones with super amoled screens suffer from Screen Burn issue.
Morover blue colour showing capability of amoled screens degrades very fastly resulting in poor blue colours.
White colour in amoled screens contain bluish tint.
Colours in amoled screens r extremely over saturated & far from reality.
While displaying white colours amoled screens consume 3 times the battery life as compared to LCD screens.
Amoled screens r more of a bane rather than boon.
The screen it is the very important part of phone all the function phone had screen have to display and the quality of screen show the quality of function ,even nokia understand that and given AMOLED screen to there flagship phones for beter display.
Battery back up which is also importand and AMOLED safe battery, lcd and Android and fast havey processor eat battery.
so i realy dought that this realty display is as good as AMOLED display or not ?
i think not at least not by looking ;(
im, 06 Apr 2011I like every bit of the arc but the only thing thats made me think twice is the phone memory..... moreYes... As long as the Android OS is 2.2 (Froyo) and above, you are able to store the applications in the micro SD card. It's an awesome phone!!! :)
This phone is thicker than 10mm, only the thinest part which is a small portion of the phone is 8.7 mm thin, it seems like cunning to say 8.7 mm thin, other manufacturers have given their thickest part of the phone, very funny any one can attach a 5mm thin part to the phone and say this phone is the thinnest phone in the world
