Definitely my next Xperia.
One question: Due to its water resistant characteristic, does it have a enclosed battery or a removable one?
Is music and movie unlimited free when using this device?
could any one clarify this for me?
I Love Sony Phone. But 1 Feature Is Missing That Is " Xenon Flash ".. Sony Corporation Have To Add " Xenon Flash " In This Next Time.
The design of this phone looks better than the Xperia S in my opinion, nice phone!
I love this phone! The moment I saw it, read it's specs... remarkable. My heart was set out to buying the Nokia 808 Pureview. Then it changed after looking at this monsterous, beautiful, fully equipped phone. I don't know with you guys, but the screen is okay. I mean, if the phone is shock and water proof, why would Sony put a weak/easy breakable glass, right? Dual Core is enough. Why ask for a quad core? Maybe because of gaming, surfing needs. But sometimes, we bite off more than we can chew... Thus, choking us. (Figuratively speaking... hehehehe). So I guess for me, dual core is just fine because it's pretty much like the dual core is a V8 engine, a quad core is a V12. Yes, V12 is faster in terms of acceleration but in maintaining speed, V12 and V8 are pretty much alike. Plus V8 is much more efficient. Just like dual versus quad, not too much of a difference. Anyways, Love this phone, waiting for it. Peace out. =)
Finally there's an sd card slot. And the device has wet finger tracking too, which helps out alot when using it with wet hands. An all rounder phone. :)
I wish that its production unit will be equipped with 3300 mAh battery :)
love this phone hope it will be better than xperia s which did not get a good reviews from all the reviews i've read.
Vengmax, 03 Jun 2012Yeah,Me too :) But one thing that make this phone still not perfect is the GPU,Adreno 220 :/ S... moreya u got a point there.......another negative point is its card slot is expandable only upto 32 gb....while samsung galaxy s3 got 64.......
Vengmax, 03 Jun 2012Yeah,Me too :) But one thing that make this phone still not perfect is the GPU,Adreno 220 :/ S... moreyeah, If it could come with S4 MSM8960, it could be the best & it can even compete with those quad core dudes in the Market, but Sony Why you are making a good phone with little dissapinting specs?
Im a Die hard Sony/ SonyEricsson Fan, now I'm using a Xperia PLAY, & I need a good update where it should have
better dualcore or quad core,
more than 1GB RAM
32GB internal storage & MicroSD slot
atleast 4.5" HD display

good audo quality with clear bass & clear stereo
bravia engine, floating touch techs
more than 13MP cam
Exmor R sensor
Xenon Flash & LED light (for video & torchfunction)
when will you make a beast phone like this SONY????
SONY uses corning gorilla glass on their Bravia 3d LED hdtv sets only. They perhaps use dragontraill glass on certain models of their mobile devices.
Wind, 02 Jun 2012Dude, that doesn't matter that much. Gorilla Glass is a brand, and who knows, maybe the non-br... moreI've seen a review video on Xperia active's glass .. They hammered it,throw a big rock (almost 3x the size & weight to d active),a wrench,a screw driver to drill it onto the glass.. And the result, nothing happened.. The glass is as good as new,the UI itself also act as good as new..
best features... only thing s it must be a quad core phone... still sony rockzzzzzz..
i dont see why people are complaining about this having a s3 processor. if sony put in a s4 krait, the price would go up. and even if it's not fast enough for you, go to xda and get an overclock kernel.
pojhe, 03 Jun 2012Xperia Arco S is not IP67, it is IP55 and IP57. So its water and dust resistance not good as X... moreNo.. Ip57 means its dust and water proof only it tells the level. . 5 stands for dust and 7 stands for water resistance... Active and this has same level of water resistance... Only difference is dust rating. . It can bare some pressure until you put much pressure on it.. This is acceptable for a high end model. . .
