I've been using SE Xperia Arc S for 5 months and I find it slow for what I use it for other than calling and texting (reading, watching videos, games), otherwise I think it's a decent phone. Recently though, after 4 months of usage I found hairline cracks on the top casing and I've searched online and it's quite a common problem with the Xperia Arc models.

Why these high end Xperia phones does not have secondary cameras? Isn't it important to have secondary cameras? I am confused. Is there any other way to compensate not having secondary cameras in these phones? I need to buy this but not having the 2ry camera makes me unconfortable... Can any one advice me on this? Many Thanks... Sachith

> In reply to prakash.gupta @ 2012-07-18 05:52 from ut2a - click to readWell prakash, you'll definitely have problems playing some HD games but not all of them. I cannot post the games' names because it can be considered advertising. The main reason some HD games won't run is, as you said, due to the low RAM this phone has. If you stick to Android Gingerbread and get rid of the bloatware (and don't keep too many app running in the background) you may succeed at playing HD games but your phone will catch some heat (that's common in the Arc S because of the 1.4Ghz processor and the Adreno 205 combo). Anyway, I encourage you to stay away from Android ICS as it has some problems with HD Games (for what I read, it's Google's fault, not Sony's)- Hope I helped you.
