amit, 23 Sep 2011SE needs to put in the front facing cam to challenge the Galaxy S2 or the iPhone. If not f... moreWhat's with you guys? Can't read specs on a phone that's been around a while? Nothing better to do than write comments on a board that obviously you have no real interest in or knowledge about? It DOES have a front facing camera! Back to school now children..
TechSavvyJaz, 23 Sep 2011SE, put a dual core CPU into it and I'm onto it in a flash..yea yea yea i bought an htc sensation 4g the dual core peice of junk...even a nokia will out class it in perfomance (sarcasm).
im not a huge s/e fan after getting x10 when it first came out but they seem to of pulled their fingers out and are producing some good spec phones that are getting updates pushed pretty quick wish they put smart dial and dual core on their phones other than that they are looking really nice...
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2011Tell us, what can you do on a Samsung Galaxy SII that you cannot do on Arc S?Look cool...
Compare SE arc and samsung galxy plus.. Which is better?practically i mean?
se ARC is one of the best phone ever built. Everything is top notch quality except for the 320mb storage. Best gps reception and in call quality out there. Well done SE.

3rd Element, 23 Sep 2011Don't they sell protective film? Can't live without one myself.Yes they do sell Screen Protectors, in fact the device comes pre-loaded with one, if you look closely it can be removed. Also everyone who sells it in the UK certainly i think includes aditional ones in the box.
So that arguement certainly doesnt stand up.
it looks infinitely better in white, which is unusual. The black ones generally look better and are far easier to maintain.
The original Arc needs more internal ROM for apps, and a front facing camera. SE should have used the ARC S to address these problems!!!
Dual core sucks battery...charging the battery takes a lifetime to fill-up. Xperia Arc S means xperiencing the right smartphone for you...make believe...
It's also available in Australia from Mobicity, they have it listed as "in stock":
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2011maybe this phone doesn't have the best performance but this is the sexiest phone i have ever seen.+1
nope, 23 Sep 2011nope! nokia n9 is the sexiest phone among them all if you would only be honest.to be honest, nokia n9 doesn't have any appeal to me. I've seen a china phone that looks exactly like N9. =)
PulsArian1331, 23 Sep 2011Looks sexy! But still Sony Ericsson hasn't learnt! 2 major drawbacks on this piece of hardware... moreSE needs to put in the front facing cam to challenge the Galaxy S2 or the iPhone.
If not for this i would have certainly bought this phone. I don't care if it's dual core or not.
I use skype a lot and what's the use if i cant use the video call feature.
Front facing cam is a must for any 15k above priced mobile.
