I'm giving a comparison between Sony Ericcson Xperia Arc and Motorola Atrix....These are ALL facts and can be checked at “gsmarena’s” specifications.... Nothing here is my opinion. All is factual.
Arc has a great 8mp camera with more options. (Exmor R sensor is a minor tech improvement, but there is no CCD lens, just a plastic lens, NO wide angle lens, No large camera sensor) Motorola Atrix only has a decent 5mp camera. (Nokia N8 is the BEST camera/video phone)
Arc has a 0.2 inch larger display. Atrix has higher screen Resolution. Both have outdated LCD screens. Although the Arc has LED Backlighting, which is better. (Nothing compares to a Super Amoled screens by Samsung)
Different Android customizations, although both are fully upgradable. Motorola is more upgradable due to faster CPU, higher ROM and more RAM
Arc talk time is 7 hours, Atrix talk time is up to 9 hours. Atrix , in theory will have longer time for internet, movies, GPS, music , general usage etc.
Arc battery is 1,500 mAh, Atrix battery is 1,930 mAh.
Arc is slimmer at 10.0mm as compared to Atrix 10.1mm..
Arc is 125 mm long. Atrix is 117.8 mm long.
Arc is is a beautiful designed phone. This is its main selling point.
Both phones are excellent plastic build quality. Both made by Foxconn in China.
Motorola Atrix has Dual-core 1GHz CPU. Arc has 1GHz single processor CPU. (Dual core is only used when needed, thus not really affecting battery life)
1080p, full HD video playback is possible with Atrix via a HDMI cable to TV. Full HD is not available in Arc.
Atrix has 1GB RAM. Arc only has 512 mb RAM.
Atrix has 16GB storage. Arc only has 320mb. (Need to buy a memory card for Arc)
Atrix has a secondary Camera. Arc has NO secondary camera.
Atrix has a finger print reader. Arc doesn’t.
Atrix has HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps. Arc only has HSDPA, 7.2 Mbp.
Motorola Atrix has several add on options such as a docking stand etc....
All this info is not biased and can be checked at gsmarena’s specifications.
great phone, beautiful to hold and use, very fast and great interface, keep up the good work sony
AnonD-23341, 24 Sep 2011Is "Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread)" considered a fast version? Because when I google... morePlease research what phone is suitable for you. There are hundreds of comments/opinions here. Everybody has different needs and tastes.

May I know is "Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread)" considered a fast version? Because I've googled and realised the latest version is already 3.2. So is it recommendable for me to buy this arc?

I have both the Arc and the Galaxy2. IMO from using both, the Galaxy is far superior in almost every aspect. The Arc is better looking, but it specs are quite outdated and in fact 2009/10 specs. Both have about the same battery life.
Of course, the Super Amoled Plus screen is far superior and has no yellow, blue etc tint problems. The screen for me is the most important as I use it for photos, videos, games etc
I guess you pay for what you get. The Arc is a cheaper, basic phone, while the Galaxy2 is the current best smart phone and costs more. The Galaxy2 is the winner and I will be selling the Arc soon.
[deleted post]Here is GSMARENA report on Samsung Super Amoled Screen. The Most Respected source of Mobile phones in the World.... 13 May 2011.
All in all, Super AMOLED Plus screens and mobile phones are really meant for each other. It’s a perfect match that reveals all the strengths (unrivaled image quality, perfect viewing angles, energy efficiency and great sunlight legibility), without suffering the traditional OLED weaknesses (higher production costs for larger units and shorter life).
We really can’t see any other screen on the market that could come close to the brilliance of the Galaxy S II unit.
