Anonymous, 31 Aug 2011Why not Dual-Core???dual core is too hungry .. and its not necessary now .. maybe later ... this phone rocks .. hdmi port thats a great idea ... phone looks awesome ..
I allready have 1,8 Ghz processor on my xperia arc, with unlock boot loader. And only one problem: 512 ram, this is not enough.
Single core, 512mb ram... Please go back to the drawing board then equip it with dual core and at least 1GB ROM. Then we can talk.
and 320mb storage is NOT ENOUGH!!! Wheres the front facing cam? Come ON SE u gotta do alot of R&D. :S
AnonD-2075, 31 Aug 2011you're quite right...it's samsung's fault...their dual was a bit early....What's interesting is that most CPU/GPU taxing applications from AppStore/Android Market are games. Any productivity related daily-used apps generally don't require dual-cores anyway. I can't think of anything more than games that iPhones will get once they get the upgrade. You can inform me on that.
The dual-cores really shine when it comes to desktop-like web browsing experience, 1080p recording/playback, etc. I already have dual-cores and I wouldn't look back to single-cores ever for this reason, not to be a gamer on a phone... And it's only going to get better with optimization.
Sorry SE, but your marketing is already discovered by XDA dev, the default arc processor is 1,55ghz, but SE decided to underclock it to 1ghz, and now they will launch a "new" arc S with 1.4ghz plese next! My arc is running at 1.9 ghz... The same goes to galaxy sII the default clock is 1.5 not 1.2, and by the end of the year, will pop a galaxy sII super
Does it come with a front camera??
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2011Why not Dual-Core???Dual-Core will com on 2012!) I heard that from my friends))
hope this is a warm up for the Xperia Duo... if not, i'd dare to believe that SE is on its way to the gutter...
Sony Ericsson is failing really hard to keep up with the rest of the market. It's almost winter now, the Nexus Prime and the iPhone 5 are coming out, and they still don't even have a dual-core phone. They could be waiting to see what the iPhone 5 has to offer though, to then release a device that is better than it/doesn't lose to it.
WHat a shame sonyericsson.. SE dissapointed me again and again :(... WAKE UP SE.. :(
AnonD-2075, 31 Aug 2011you're quite right...it's samsung's fault...their dual was a bit early....You are being harsh on Samsung here... For the record sake LG Optimus 2X was the first phone with dual core and not S2.. Moreover dual cores arw not only for apps.. A 1080p video wont work great with a single core... There are many other advantages of a dual core over a single core such as in multitasking.. You cant really blame the manufacturers.. Google should have updated its version earlier...
On October in Europe
Sony ericssson is sucks....the world now is about dual-core 4G.....but SE still so long behind other companies!!!
Is ram more useful or a processor..whats their individual role???
i guess these days you cannot by a phone once it came out without regret...!?

AnonD-2075, 31 Aug 2011we are talking about the same line....both droid apps and apple apps dont need a dual core til... moreSurely but Android phones with dual core processors have been in the market for a few months now... What i am saying is the Android Marketplace is taking a whole lot of time to launch apps for a dual core phone... This wont be the case with Apple...
it's just an xperia arc overclocked...
You make me sick SE, no dual core, no ram improvement, no front cam...no design revolution.
