Day before yesterday I got this in Sri Lanka. I like this phone very much. Still I am exploring this.
Using this you cant take normal video(3G) calls. But video cam is supporting skype.
Was able to briefly compare Xperia Arc and neo. They seem to share a common electronic design--but since each caters to different audience, Arc is higher-end lighter and has larger screen. While, neo feels a bit heavier, has smaller screen (same resolution though) but it also has a front camera which the Arc doesn't have(good for applications that support videocalls--e.g. Skype, etc.). The Arc is shaped nicely and more secure to hold despite it's size. The neo feels a bit awkward to hold--I always press accidentally press the side buttons and if I avoid it, I feel I might drop the phone.
Did somebody rooted their neo?? If yes then pls pls pls tell me how to root this phone and also how to downgrade this phone. Pls ans me in detail and links. Ur help will be very appreciated. Thanks in advance

Had mine for 2 weeks now. Everything is just SMOOTH! Gingerbread and Sony did very well in the usability department. One thing that could be improved is the smooth, curved housing which easily gets scratches no matter how careful you are. Mine's already showing tiny scratches even though I use a pouch--it will look old easily. Suggestion: immediately use a protective accessory (silicon case or invisible shield), not a pouch which will rub when you slide it in/out.
Mandar, 23 Sep 2011Can anyone please confirm if Neo is available in India?? if yes then at what price??Neo (8mp) is officially not available in India but you can buy it from grey market for Rs.19.5k.

kertoke, 12 Sep 2011OK! I bought this phone five days ago. My first experience is great. There are three main di... moreDon't Think this has a platic case, but Indeed very robust. I dropped my phone yesterday when I get out thru my Emergency Exit (It has Steel Staircase) It bounce three time and from the height of Approx.. 4m, the Battery flew away, back cover and mobile laying on the stair. Al Hamdulillah, Nothing Happen except some minor breakage in the side panel and with minor bulge. Al-Hamdulillah.
Yes I updated mine to 2.3.4 today from the USA. I love the new update, HD video recording mode now can zoom in or out. I have not test other features but ill update this once i play around with it.
To everyone out there reading this,
I have heard that one can't make normal video calls from recently released SE phones? My question to the owners is:
1. Does the new 2.3.4 update brings normal video calling facility (using one's phone number, not using any sort of app or internet connection) to the phone finally?
2. If not, then should I expect any software update from SE in the future to fix this?
3. Are Neo V and Neo same processing and performance wise (apart from camera) and is 512mb RAM enough for such a phone for moderately high use?
I have a xperia arc and my girlfriend a xperia neo and to be honest theirs not alot of difference between the two on benchmark tests using quadrant, its more down to the physical appearance of the devices
