The SonyEricsson store in The Annex in SM North Edsa is small but they often have new units shortly after launch. U find it next to the HTC store, which again is next to the Cherry Store ahah. That was so fun to see so i had to take a photo of the two stores side by side, the cheapest crap Cherry to the left and the most expensive crap HTC to the right. Cherry and HTC should join and make some mid-price crap, and i would not be surprised if HTC is made at Cherrys factory in China =)

As a fellow software engineer i have written lots of programs in my life that was less than optimal but i am still brave enough to say that HTC Sense is a collection of junk and badly written software, and at Samsung things are just as bad or even worse

Does SE Arc S has the lag problem like the Samsung Galaxy I9100?? The Samsung lag problem was very troubling and I want to ensure SE Arc S is a better phone.
Anyone can confirm on this?

upgrade to sony 2.3.4 firmware and you will notice the difference, battery life about two days with average usage, faster, smoother and more responsive

go to sony ericsson service centre or do it your computer.

SWYPE input is the best additon on this phone

How is the compass of Arc S?

I am asking because i have an Xperia Pro and the compass is real bad, and its not only mine has the problem. Is it better on other Xperia series phones?

I have been the happy owner of an arc s since a few weeks. I must say that at the beginning i was not impressed by it.... I didn't like the case, i didn't like the widgets but zt the end of. The day it works well...the battery last for all day, the camera is nice and also the internet surfing is smooth. It is not the best on the market but i'm satisfied. Well done sony
