freakazoid, 29 Mar 2011Neo is better than HTC desire S -- cheaper, higher 8mp camera, video autofocus, bigger battery... moreAmong your gripes...I think the #1 on your list may actually be legit.
But numbers 2 and above will always have a remedy. Theres a ton of customizations that you can do with an Android device.
Neo is better than HTC desire S -- cheaper, higher 8mp camera, video autofocus, bigger battery (desire s has only 1450mah; neo has 1500)
my only gripes:
1) low ram. some sites mention it lags coz of the low ram.
2) physical buttons. they are soo last years' look. SE should Use touch-sensitive keys.
3) poor sms UI -- text box still TINY: you can't see long sms when typing.
4) icons are so small, like they're anorexic. Needs fatter, more colorful icons.
5) homescreen is just 5, not 7.
yeahhh finally released on march 29..
does someone has already buy this phone?
tell us what you think about the performance..
and confirm the RAM 512 or 380? lol...
asad, 29 Mar 2011specifications seem to be good but no match for nokia n8no mach ? in which way ? metal casing ? or an overrated camera ? anything other than that is better on neo
Looks like Good Mobile. I'll buy. I'm bored of Nokia and its not-so good cameras
asad, 29 Mar 2011specifications seem to be good but no match for nokia n8I tried the N8 on the emax store, and the 12mp camera is not good.. when I take pic of the salesman, the pic comes out with yellowish tints all over, although the showroom was well lighted. I take a Galaxy Ace to compare, and the Ace's pic has no yellow tints.
But my husband was impressed with the N8 (despite the yellow fringes).. but I think any 5 mp camera is good enuf. No need for 12 mp,and you still get yellowish shots, even with strong light.
Just visited sonyericsson site. they have changed the status From "coming soon" TO "NEW" for ARC and NEO.
Fawwaz, 28 Mar 2011Its available now on sonyericsson's site. * also Xpeia ArcWhich Sony Ericsson website are you looking at buddy? The one I'm looking at still shown both the Arc and Neo as "Coming Soon". These handsets however, can be pre-order through a few UK retailers, and one of them is SE UK.
SE has developed fantastic design for its latest phones. Nokia is losing the battle. SE phones look like they are from the future.

Too much money or I better say "Too Much Monkey Business" from Sony Ericsson! I better buy another X10 instead, more cheap and with Gingerbread in the following few month. You made a very smart move regarding X10, if you'll keep your promise, of course, so please, Sony Ericsson, don't give us Neo with a skyrocketed price.
MnM, 28 Mar 2011Okay, so it is shown on the SE's website that Arc and Neo have been released. Is it true? What... moreSadly, they're are still listed as preorder on the SE UK website. The Xperia Neo unlocked is £369.99 (about $590 USD); Xperia Arc unlocked is £419.99 (about $670 USD)
Okay, so it is shown on the SE's website that Arc and Neo have been released. Is it true? What's the price of these gadgets?
