Mugizi Roland Roxy, 25 Sep 2011It lacks inbuilt TV player and the internal memory is very Small. It should be upgraded up to ... moreSigned under... It has 2 low internal memory. Just like the HTC Desire (original). Than you root it - change the ROM and use A2SD with EXT partition... and... the phone is slower that way (read/write 2 SD sys files)... They should upgrade it yeah, just like HTC did with Desire S... Think about it... :)
PS: Great phone BTW - my sister has it... ;)
It lacks inbuilt TV player and the internal memory is very Small. It should be upgraded up to like atleast 8GB. Otherwise I like its sleek design.
Why can't people write the plainest of English? now that is really sad!!
if this phone use screen super amoled ,i think it very good because now i very like it
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2011this phone win by a mile in the looks department against samsung s2. however, feature wise, sa... moreFeatures does not always mean user friendly, it can only mean complication. BTW, I personally do not find any practical features with my SGSII which can really impress me!?
The messaging feature of the SE Ray/Arc impress me, as they are so easy to use without taking any lesson - very logical. One messaging feature is very impressive - when typing with the normal keyboard, I can just swipt my finger from left or right; or from right to left, and it will move to the qwerty keyboard. How simple & easy - this is what I call design.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2011wow! how many phones do you have? does arc s have secondary camera?No secondary camera.
Yes, I do buy a lot of mobile phones often, even though I mainly use their basic features - I'm not the IT type of person.
If I like the look or if people say that it's good, I'll just buy it.
I purchased the iPhone 4 (2 of them at the same time) because I liked the look of it, gave one to my sister-in-law; and kept one for my own use. I used it for exactly 7 days, not impressed at all (do not like the trouble of iTune), I gave my iPhone 4 to my girlfried (she is still using it - she had never use or try Android phones, she like the iPhone). I went to my service provider & brought a BB 9700, which provide good call quality and look professional.
I brought the SGSII because the electronic store manager said that it's good (with good screen and good function, and that he is using one himself). The phone is light & thin, which I like, but the phone does look kind of cheap. I really wish there will be a more pocket friendly toouch screen phone for me to purchase, then came the SE Ray. I purchased the Ray right away when it was available. I was using the Ray on my Japanese trip, which I found that the smaller screen not as comfortable to read the map. other than this, I'm quite happy with SE Android phone.
After I got back from my trip, I went to look at the Arc S (the first day when it's available for sale), I really fell in love with the look of the white Arc, so I purchased it.
If you are looking for a user friendly good looking Android phone with good performance and no hang (unlike SGSII & iPhone or Moto Atrix), go for this Arc S.
this phone win by a mile in the looks department against samsung s2. however, feature wise, samsung s2 won by ten miles!
I got Arc S for 3 days. It's absolutely faster than Arc with all of Arc's great features. The battery is improved and it last all day heavy use. 10 out of 10.
My Samsung SGS2 is faster in most respect, but not by much. SGS2 sometimes hang, but never happen with my Xperia Ray. My Arc S is brand new, so I'll not comment for now. But I do not think that there will be any problem with my Arc S, as it's basically got th same internal as the Ray.
The Arc S is definately more friendly to use then my SGS2, and the Arc is so much better looking. My SGS2 (black color) is a bit cheap looking, the whitee version which came out recently does look better.
Do not install Skype, it drain the battery so unbelivably fast! Battery should last for one day without problem, even with data & background data turned on - provided you are not a heavy user.
Dhaval , 19 Sep 2011Sony ericsson really you cant compare this with samsung galaxy s 2... Bcoz galaxy 2 has bett... morefor ur knowledge it has sony bravia display , led not lcd even its ram is 512 it can way ahead than galaxy's 1 gb ram
Sony cheats I have xperia x10 and it su..ks. They wont upgrade the firmware where as samsung and htc does it a year ago. Dont biy sony friends they just cant keep up with the smart phones. there phones look smart in thpictures but in hand it is not worth compared to rivals
To thos who's owner ot this device please share us how last the bettery life . I wish to get one of this but use to be owner of x10 bettery life is not good .
Why do they make such a high end phone without the without the basic feature of video calling with the front facing camera ????. That's really sad ...
, although very much enjoy the pocket friendly size of the Ray, I ws not so happy with the small fonts until now that I have installed the "spare parts' apps., which I can enlarge the fonts size for a very comfortable reading experience.
Still, I'm thinking hard of getting te Arc S in white, which is very attractive to my eyes. I got bored with the look of my black iPhone, and I do not even like the white version at all.
