For all u wondering whether to buy this or not, read this -
- its got amazing screen, good color, good brightness, tilt angle badness is overhyped
- very good camera, simple interface, good clicks
- bful design, esp white color
- very good network signal strength always
- amazing sound thru headphones! Stock hphone = sennheiser
- in call loudspeaker little less volume, music etc pretty loud but lil more treble
- wi fi signals comparitively weaker.. If my ipad shows 3 bar, arc s shows 1. Bt maybe ipad has more powerful radio, idk, but phone did drop signal few times n i sit lil far from router.
- no lags, smooth as butter live wallpapers, will lag little if RAM goes below 70~75 but only when u come to desktop frm menu when live wpaper is active, else smooth
- no secondary cam, but tango works with primary cam n i think skype will also atleast for voice calls
- UI is simple neat n easy, apps load up quick, cam pics take little xtra tym to render when viewing gallery bt thats ok
- it does heat at back if u charge n use wifi/call, else it does not
- timescape will take up lots of RAM as i hv read, dont use it, u wont miss anythng gr8
- internal memory IS lil less, but u will hv to make do unless u want to root n remove bloatware
Thats all i can think of ryt now, ask me if u hv queries.
This is for GB n not ICS

I liked This Phone ... For All Specifications ... I Just Only Want To Ask About Its Battery ...??
B'coz Its Written : Talk Time :Up to 7 h 25 min (2G) / Up to 7 h 35 min (3G)
So Does it Improve By Usage ...??
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2012is arc s really upgradable to ICS ? tnx Yes SE Xperia ARC S is upgradable to ICS, but not upgradable to JELLY BEAN
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2012is this phone better or xperia neo l?This is faster than the neo l (1.4 GHz). Plus neo l runs on ICS, w/c means higher cpu and mem requirements.
I got the chance to compare my Arc S w/ Galaxy S2 when I went to a mall the other day. And I have to say i'm quite impressed w/ my Arc S. It can match the s2 in terms of browsing and homescreen speed. Plus the color on the s2 is not that better than my Arc S. Unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to test the sound quality of the s2.
Apart from the crack above the proximity sensor (mine's small, though noticable since the phone is white), this is indeed a decent device. Bought myself an IM820 HDMI cable and a DK10 dock and paired it with a Logitech keyboard/mouse combo. Can do some light internet browsing (news, email check etc) without having to wait for the computer to boot. For all I care this is the future of computing; this sort of functionality is what's going to kill off the desktop, laptop, heck even tablet computers in the upcoming future.
It's a very good phone at the price of 250 euros,because:
-the screen is very bright ,vivid colors,decent blacks,all with Bravia Engine;
-the battery is decent:5h of video playback,3-4h of web browsing(at 100% luminosity)
-the Android 4.04 update;
-very good headphones;
-can do very good photos;
-CPU+GPU don't have any lagg(if you use task manager to clean RAM).
I recommend this phone!
Shaleen, 28 Aug 2012Yesterday i've got the update 4.1.B.0.587 via udate center i've done it through wifi and i mus... moreI sort of wished I had an arc, (maybe my girlfriend will upgrade soon and let me have hers:) I am quite intrigued to see how good it is hooking up the phone to tv for gaming in HD, and then using the usb connection for an xbox or psp controller.
Yesterday i've got the update 4.1.B.0.587 via udate center i've done it through wifi and i must say this update is awesome the touch experience is super smooth now. No lags in gaming even play HD games like shadow gun. So those who were cribbing because of ICS update can update their phone and can feel the changes.
Where i can find memory in menu . I don't find memory . plz give me a solution
