I love this phone.all in all it's a great phone. but the price of this phone here in the philippines are just the same as the Samsung GS2 and LG Optimus 2x. making me to think to go for GS2.
I have this beauty for a month now, and I can tell you guys, this is one hell of a smartphone, incredibly fast and smooth, easy to use with lovely UI and the most eye catching design, no regret at all, it's simply perfect for me :-)
Updated! Unlike other times, this one is my own review of the device ;-)
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc - The Ultimate Multimedia Device.
1/ / First thing to mention, is the fantastic design, it's simply
the most eye catching design we've ever seen from Sony
Ericsson, the Arc shape makes it absolutely comfortable to
hold in both landscape and portrait modes , and with
extraordinary weight of 117g and the premium build
quality, we just can't expect a better body for a device with
4.2 inch screen!
2/ / On the body you can see the power button and micro
HDMI out port at the top, first mic and the lanyard loop at
the bottom, standard audio jack at the left, notification LED
light (unique feature), micro USB port, volume rockers and
the dedicated camera key (rare feature between Android
based handsets) at the right, 8mp camera lens, LED flash,
second mic (for noise cancelation and stereo recording) and
the loud speaker at the rear, and at the front you notice the
ear piece, proximity sensor and three hardware keys: menu,
home and back buttons. And of course, I didn't mention the
screen because you can barely see the edge between the
screen and the black border surrounding it when the screen
is off! And this beauty might be available in three colors!!
Surprised, huh?! There are two official colors, Misty silver
and Midnight blue, but a pink version has appeared on web
too (for Ntt DOCOMO in Japan) .
3/ / In term of hardware, Arc has everything to run the
Android 2.3 gingerbread fast and smooth, 1GHz Scorpion
processor, Adreno 205 GPU, Qualcomm MSM8255, 512MB
of RAM and 320MB of internal storage. And no need to be
worry about the internal storage since you can install
everything on your memory card with gingerbread.
4/ / This device has the most customized and customizable
UI. Plus with Timescape and Mediapane. The Xperia UI is so
beautiful and gives you full control to change things as you
see fit. For example you can sort your main menu desirably
and you can make folders easily by dropping an icon on the
other one. And you can’ t miss the cool overview mode that
shows all your widgets in one screen, all you have to do is
pinch and you can see all your widget large enough instead
of seeing all home screens with tiny widgets.
Now let’s get to business and see why they call it "The
Ultimate Multimedia Device"
The Camera, Screen (image output) and loud speaker (audio
output) are the most involved parts regarding to multimedia
matters, so let’ s take a look at them:
5/ / Camera: Arc has an 8mp auto focus camera which
features Touch focus, image stabilization, geo- tagging, face
and smile detection, with LED flash and capable of recording
videos at 720P HD 30fps, But that doesn't end here,
Because you have the award winning Exmore R mobile
sensor which has twice sensitivity compared to normal
sensors and it means that you' ll get much better images in
low light conditions! You think that’ s all?! No, you're wrong!
Because above all other camera phones, we get an
extraordinary feature for video recording and it' s the
"Continuous auto focus feature", that means you don't need
to be worry about the lens distance from anything while
you're taking videos! Isn’ t it cool? Yeah I know :-P
6/ / Screen: This device has an LED-backlit LCD, 4.2 inch at
480× 854 capacitive multitouch screen, which is scratch-
resistant too, capable of showing 16m colors with perfect responses to your touches. And let me tell you that this isn't JUST
another LCD! They have put the amazing "Mobile Bravia
Engine" on this device. And it means that you have brighter,
sharper and super natural colored images! And again, that's
not all! They’ve done something else with screen so it has
much less reflection, so thumbs up for the brilliant sunlight
visibility of the screen!
7/ / HDMI output: well, beside the very nice screen you get
full HDMI out too! so you can see not only your gallery on
your HD TV, but in fact you'll be able to see the entire UI on
it, so just plug it to your HD TV and start playing angry bird!
Everyone will be surprised :-)
8/ / Audio output: Thanks god! unlike their other recent
phones, this one has an excellent loud speaker , very loud
and high quality...plus the 3.5 mm headphone jack that it'll
give you great audio quality for sure, since you have nice
equalizers too. So don't worry about the sound at all.
In the end, believe me or not, this is an absolutely unique
smart phone. Some people call it The Android Smartphone
with luxurious advantages! Suit yourself and call it whatever
you like but … wait! No need to look for power button,
Press the home key, swipe to unlock ... now enjoy this
beauty! … And hey! Get the hold of yourself! It’s just a
SE2010, 20 Aug 2011 Look at this beauty: http://www.xperiablog.net/2011/08/20/luster-white-xperia-arc-spotted-again/lol oh ya! we should definitely inform "Roar" about this, he loves white stuff :-D

Ganesh, 19 Aug 2011Users, After OS installed what is the available space in this phone, does 320 MB enough to in... moreI'm sure it's more than enough if you're a normal person like me, i've got dozens of games and apps installed on my phone with that so called "little" amount of internal memory, and i have got hardly enough time to play with all of them, and when you don't use the apps, you'll know it's time to uninstall them, sides u can always move your apps to your memory card. Don't listen to what other fan boys said cause no amount of memory will be enough if you don't know how to manage your apps.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2011it is useless smartphone, because no video call camera. Err no, not true, i don't use video calling, and i'm pretty sure most of us here don't use that anyway, so, be gone now~
