I have my arc since 4 days now and i can say when talking about sound quality after been listen over hours of music today the sound quality is absulotly excellent i ifen make few calls with the headset ( i use Koz Porta Pro very good headset )and i did nt reconice any noise or whatsoever the Arc is a overall excellent phone so and if some people who writting bad comment over arc they should better leave this section and go elsewhere and get them self a life
ronking, 03 Apr 2011ya i know that problem has an alternative but i need to make a desicion here can u suggest me ... moreI would just pointing out what I think as the weak points from both phones, and assume the rests are the good ones:
= Incredible S
- camera isn't comparable to arc
- video recording quality
- audio quality is not as expected from a costly device
- runs Froyo instead of 2.3, though it is upgradeable to 2.4
= Xperia arc
- no front facing camera (is this feature essential ?)
- smaller internal free memory - but isn't that arc and xperia pro sharing the same hardwares, coz if you check pro's white paper, it says total phone memory is 1 GB
(Incredible S has 1.1 GB of ROM but no info about the size of its free space)
- UI is not as good as HTC's (according to some people that I don't really care about this)
- no DivX/XVid certification - though the hardware can handle this format natively
And as of these are android smartphones, some of those weak points possibly have a solution by installing application. The choice is yours.
SPDR, 02 Apr 2011the cnet review for the arc said that the arc ahs a front facing camera, can someone confirm/c... moreNo, this phone does NOT have a front facing camera. I love the design of this phone and I am sacrificing the ff camera option to get this phone. Xperia Neo has the front facing camera option but the rear camera on the phone lacks a lot of options which are present in Arc.
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2011Use Wi-Fi if you need higher speed data transfer - up to 72 Mbps. ya i know that problem has an alternative but i need to make a desicion here can u suggest me which handset to choose
all of this technology is useless if your gadget got low battery... all we need is kinetic energy for every mobile phone
My Xperia Arc came with the HDMI cable, 16GB micro SD card, and a leathercase.....Bought in Denmark !
hiii every body i need a little advice i have to make a choice between xperia arc and htc incredible s please suggest me one ?
i heard htc's touch is more responsive and better than that of xperia is it so?
secondly xperia's low inbuilt memory and ram(320mb memory 512 mb ram htc has 1gb memory and 786 mb ram) a big disadvantage nd what abt HSDPA (7.2 MBPS for xperia nd 14.4 for htc)please suggest one taking all pros n cons of both sets in mind..?thanks in advance
hey guyss plzz i need some help i have to chose between htc incredible s and the xperia arc please suggest me one..?
heard htc touch is more responsive n better than xperia and moreover does the inbuilt storage of arc i.e 320 mb (htc has 1.1 gb)along with HSDPA of 7.2 mbps(htc has 14.4mbps)a big disadvantage .
please suggest me?
sum, 03 Apr 2011boss this section ain't for ARGUMENTS !!!! i said pretty clearly stop fighting discus what u w... moreyeah, sorry i know that! but some people just complain and bash other products even though they have never used it. im pretty sure the person whom i replied to earlier has never even seen a super amoled screen.
ok back to the topic, here are my views on arc: the standout feature of arc is its excellent design and build quality. its even better than iphone 4, or galaxy s2 or n8 IMO.
its almost a perfect phone. it would have been the best if it had an extra core and an amoled or high quality ips display coupled with the bravia engine. any way it does stand out from the rest.
sum, 03 Apr 2011thx for sharing ur experience . im in a tie with xperia Arc and Play i love playing games. but... moreIt depends on what you think is more important. The Play is of course better when it comes to gaming, but the Arc is thinner, lighter, has got bigger screen, better camera and is probably cheaper. For me, it was a no-brainer, but it depends on what you value the most.
I got the "blue" one, and yes, that was the only option. It's more black than blue though, but the subtle black/blue metallic gradient on the back really looks good.
nixonyang, 03 Apr 2011Hey, i just found out that the retail unit in Malaysia will ship with
Hi-Fi Wireless Headset... moreOMG, you already had the Xperia Arc in Malaysia???!
I've been waiating for like an eternity for the phone, and you've already seen it??? WHAT IS THE RETAIL PRICE, I MUST KNOW. ASAP. PLEASE. OR ELSE I'LL DIE.
Owh, if you own one, howdoes it feel??
[deleted post]Yeah, it is "flawed".
Cnet said that display on Arc is much clearer and brighter than super amoled on nexus s.
dave, 03 Apr 2011Cnet Said that the phones battery was very poor. Can anyone comment on how good the battery is?Cnet said that they got more than 1 day battery life easily but they called it poor bcoz of their own perspective of thinking.
For most of the sites Arc gave good battery life(including Gsmarena) .
[deleted post]boss this section ain't for ARGUMENTS !!!! i said pretty clearly stop fighting discus what u want to but in a mature way. like i own Desire right now so i know its flaws and Pros so when i will buy Arc i can easily compare. !!! something like that would be much appreciated by all the geeks like me :)
Jo, 03 Apr 2011Yeah, I agree with the poster who said that you guys should stop arguing whether some Nokia is... morethx for sharing ur experience . im in a tie with xperia Arc and Play i love playing games. but i also need a big screen with GOOD camera.. maybe i might go for Arc. which color did u bought i heard they only launched it with Blue and silver might arrive in few weeks ???
