As I can see on this site the majority of the comments are being posted by people with very poor knowledge of what's going on in the mobile phone industry. You cannot ask somebody WHAT MOBILE PHONE IS SUITABLE FOR YOU!!! It's outrageous.
Before you buy it, go and compare it with S II side by side. Check the colors, especially the white color (in SII it's blue more than white), feeling in hand, quality of plastics, looks, performance (SII is the best at the moment), accessories, price, camera, etc. Decide for yourselves not the be sorry afterwards.
I bought this cell phone from Vodafone Romania and the bootloader cannot be unlocked for free: "Bootloader unlock allowed: No". Ask before you buy it if the bootloader can be unlocked or not. You need this if you want to put on it custom ROMs. More details on Sony Ericsson site.
Don't get me wrong, Arc S is a wonderful device, camera is good (it satisfies my needs), screen is beautiful, design is sleek (everyone who sees it loves it), internal memory is enough if you don't install all the shit on the market and forget that you have it. It was on almost the same price with S II but the screen and design made me choose this one. I don't need dual core and all the powerpack that S II offers (I would not sacrifice the beauty for the muscle). Be wise and think if you are more than an average user to buy the right one for you.

> In reply to Asif @ 2011-12-25 19:13 from n54c - click to readI am currently using my arc S to reply to your post right now :) yes, you can store apps on external memory :) i would recommend this phone, i didn't know what phone to get aswell but this one appealed to me, worth the purchase only problem i've had is the watermark on the back that says HD under the camera has faded, get a case to stop this, or just dont touch it, also v nice screen, handles any app i've thrown at it no prob and it quite fast cause of the processor, definately worth the purchase :)

> In reply to Asif @ 2011-12-25 19:13 from n54c - click to readNo dont buy it... its a very good phone.. but samsung galaxy II is a better choice ( though its big ).

For ur question .. it entirely depends on the apps itselg.. some can be moved to the SD card .. while others remain in phone memory and thats were arc becomes shitty cause of its measly 320 mb internal memory ... which fills up in a jiffy.. and the phone becomes extremely slow.. as happened with mine.. so u have to choose between apps and uninstall u dont use to have others... this is where samsumg II comes in with its 16 gb internal memory...and the battery of arc is reaaly shitty as compared to galaxy SII.... so its ur call.. otherwise i still love my arc... just hate its internal memory issues and battery... :P
