Hi
What is the thing with internal memory, is there any problem with installing the apps, how many without removing the others?
What is the screen glass made of, i mean is it Gorilla glass and how durable is for scratches?
Can you wear it in pants or it will brake, you know how good it's build?
And finally the battery life 1, 2, 3 days? I know i know, ''if you are a heavy user'' blah blah blah
And can u use led light for flashlight from the box or you have to download an app from android market?
And one more tricky question.
If buying again would you choose this phone or SGS2?
I ask this because provider put almost the same prices between this two 100 (the contract is for 2 years), so little help is need it.
Thanks for it.

The best ANDROID DEVICE i have used so far (* used 5 different types already)

It costs me 330 EURO (S.Asian Region Price). I must say that the investment is well paid off.

Even with a single core CPU it can perform as good as Galaxy S II (which is equipped with a Dual Core CPU)

Key Points:
1. Very Fast Device; Almost 0% response lag.

2. Battery runs well up to 8-10 hours under heavy use. ( 2hrs talk, 1hr HD video, 50 mins browsing, 45 mins game, rest includes Text msg, Reading books in Adobe Reader, social updates on wifi, Maps and Android market and a little bit of music)

*** On average use it lasts almost 36-48 hours.

3. Highly customizable home screen, u can add folders and put apps in it and keep it in the home screen for quick access) Enables more shortcut in home screen.

4. Very Good Audio Quality, Great Camera & 720p video recording is one of the best i have seen so far.

5. Even with a minimum screen brightness (0-5)% you can work quite well, i keep it 25-35% for me.

6. Runs HD games smoothly.

7. Please do not install Any Task Killer software, it basically creates pressure on CPU and also drains battery a lot.


** Those who are worried about battery, I can assure u that the battery performance will increase after 1-2 weeks use. The battery started to take heavy load easily for my device after 10-12 times of charging after 2 weeks.

** So if you are planning to purchase an Android device within 250-280 Euro, I would request you to increase the budget little bit more and invest 330 (Asian Region price) on this. You won't be disappointed.

For a single core device, it must be pretty powerful than a dual core unit since it will be getting ICS by next year. Smashing!

This has better network speeds (twice as fast) as well as a faster processor as compared to the original arc. Can people stop saying it's just an overclocked arc?

I can tell everyone that i use this phone for about 2 weeks and i was pleased to have it...at first,coz it works a little bit faster then my ex phone SE Satio,and the display it's quite good,but i'm not verry satisfied of the camera...it works fine,but pictures came out plasticate...seems a bit unreal comparative with my ex phone,and above all,the music quality is lower than Sony phones...at least this is my opinia.
I'm planning to leave behind Samsung and return to Sony....I think that this SE Arc S will satisfy me more...:)
