Came out on 3/27.
Overall feels not so different than the X10.
Gingerbread 2.3.2, 335mb of ram, 380 mb of rom and not everything can be moved to the sd card.
Asphalt 5 and Lets golf came with the phone, but speedwise, I can't really tell a difference between the X10 and the Arc.
Exmor R's nice, and the camera speed's just incredible. But so far only the midnight blue's out in Taiwan, and all sold out within the 1st day in retail stores.
Phone's really thin though, but the battery life after 1 night of charge got me down to 83% after 3h 13 minutes with no game play and only wifi on it. It should be ok.
Good job Sony Ericsson on keeping qualities alive even though the customer service does continue to suck just as bad. But in comparison with Samsung's I9000 with all those glitches and bugs, I still prefer quality over hardware and software glitches.
BEST PHONE EVER. I can't wait anymore for release. 4 more day, and it'll be mine :)))))))))
beverly hills ninja, 29 Mar 2011will this phone have continuous autofocus and video light in video recording as in the xperia ... moreit probably will. even my X10 Mini Pro has continuous auto focus. i dont see a reason why they'll remove this in Arc
will this phone have continuous autofocus and video light in video recording as in the xperia neo? would be glad to hear a reply soon.
Hey. Does anyone know if it would be compatible with ATT 3G or TMobile 3G. ? Also will the phone selling in UK be compatible with ATT 3G? Please advise.
after da release of arc, nokia, samsung, lg, are all fcuked! No more android to beat d arc! SE is just 2 goood!
Due an upgrade, was looking at the Arc through Orange in the UK.
Was told last week that the new Sony range would be released on the 1st of April. Called today and have now been told that these phones (Neo and Arc) have been pushed back, with no date given. The Play still looks to be on course to be released through Orange on the 1st of April....even though O2 in the UK have pushed back release until bugs are fixed....Lets hope Orange don't release a buggy phone like they did with the Samsung i8910......
Orange are also looking the release the Motorola Atrix sometime in May.....
Thought the UK users might like to know....:)
