hello guys , can somebody tell me is buying this phone(ARC S) now is good or a bad idea?
Sony Ericsson 's fasted Android 2.3.4 boxed phone ,
The design is over attractive , The back curve is really charming , Great display , with reality and Sony BRAVIA engine , Great at Music .
Video player plays 720p mp4 or wmv perfectly :)
But It can also play 1920*1080p videos at any format by using Mx Player from Android market ,
Camera is Too good , and also in the dark !!!
when Its too much dark , increase the ev level and see the great result !
Exmor r technology for camera is good ,
Just a little Battery problem like all droid phone ,
Use low brightness , and increase it when u need it !
Use a app killer and kill the apps after using it ,
U r battery life will increase 2 times !
i have a problem with the new version of android 4.0.4 the wifi disconnects without any reason although it works in the same mobile at the same time with version 2.3.4
Hmm I just got dis new sonny experia arc and I am already having battery problems d battery cant even last 4hrs even without d 3g being on whereas my friends android can last 3days isit just my fone or isit common?
bought this phone few days ago, its very good overall, but there are some mayor problems:
-the firmware isn't well polished, often suffers from lag spikes and issues because of bad drivers, takes some patience to fix.
-battery is weak(i forgive that, after all its so slim and has many features)
-screen brightness doesn't change automatically although it should
-the biggest one: wifi has very weak signal, from what i've seen its hardware problem and can't be fixed. wifi drops signal when others still have 50%, and i have to be 2m from router to get full signal.(tested with 3 routers)

One thing i hate about the sonyericsson xperia arc s is that the camera has no date stamp which is bad.next time sonyericsson should build phones with date camera stamp.
Been using the phone for a year now........still find it the best buy available in the market considering the price performance looks
update my arc s to 4.0.4 .587... it runs perfectly smooth n well... although you must reboot the phone in order to help some apps to adapt the new update..
I've just bought the Xperia Arc S from Egypt at 2400 L.E. and I've been using it for over a week and i updated it to the latest 4.0.4 ICS and I'm not experiencing any difficulties or droppings.
I have been using Sony Ericsson mobiles for more than 10 years now and i love this product, i will get the Xperia S as soon as it arrives to Egypt.
