Ms E, 02 Jul 2011i can't choose between xperia arc and samsung I9000 gallaxyS ??plz opt arc..!!
Billy, 02 Jul 2011The screen is good on the Arc, but nothing compares to Super Amoled or a Super Amoled Plus scr... moreas i have said, get an Arc & a unit with SA or SA+ like SGS or SGS2 and compare them both in actual use.
what you read does not necessarily applies with actual user experience. SGS & SGS2 battery drains faster than ARC's. it may be true that SA & SA+ consumes less power but what i'm trying to say is, upon using this screen technology to smartphones, SE ARC's implementation of LCD technology ourperforms SGS/SGS2's SA/SA+ implementation when it comes to battery life.
this is something you won't understand with reading alone even if it's written all over the pages of every pages of every website in the internet.
how many people use and how often do people use front cameras. most times we hold our phones to our ears when making calls. so quite yapping about arc not having a front camera.
Billy, 02 Jul 2011The screen is good on the Arc, but nothing compares to Super Amoled or a Super Amoled Plus scr... moreYes you are right nothing compares with Samsung Super Amoled screens.
Nothings else on the market is as useless as they are.
Too much contrast and too little resolution, problems with reliability and what's up with such high viewing angles? Much of the time my preoccupation is not that viewing angle is too little, but that it is too high! Don't remember any situation were the angle on my Arc was too little to use but I remember a lot of occasions were it was to wide and that I don't really want the people next to me to see my screen. Little privacy, please!
And what about colour rendition on super amoled? The Arc and Iphone are just PERFECT!
bought my arc 2 days ago in manila. comes with 16gb micro sd. i bought it with gingerbread 2.3.3 already installed. facebook integration is great!
i am not into the dual-cores. i value functionality over processor-speed. anyways, it is already fast even with a single-core.
i bought this because i'm a heavy facebook user. thumbs up to SE for the "Facebook Inside Xperia" feature!
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2011use one so that you'll know the difference. i speak as an experienced user.
i'm not as good... moreThe screen is good on the Arc, but nothing compares to Super Amoled or a Super Amoled Plus screen. Plus all Amoled screens consume less power.
U can read this all over the internet. Its a fact, not an opinion. Gsmarena has done several tests and comparasions.
For me personally a mobile phone is all about the best available screen quality with good battery life. Having the best screen quality really enchances the users pleasure.

i'm not as good as you in reading brochures & spec sheet but i think actual user experience tells everything rather than just comparing spec sheets.
i was relly want this mobile but this mobile doesn't have front camera...
Performance is only average when compared to the latest smart phones. Phones had 1gig cpu in 2009.
Battery life is still bad like the X10 or all Android phones.
Only has an old technolgy LCD screen. Just look at the comparison by gsmarena. The Super Amoled Plus on the Galaxy 2 totally destroys the pathetic old LCD screen.

[deleted post]This is just another pretty looking phone from SE. Its aimed at girls and younger people.
Just a bigger version of the X10 with HDMI. So, its already a failure. Sorry SE, you have failed again.
Still using an outdated LCD screen.
Gisam, 01 Jul 2011What different with GPU and CPU? Can anyone explain which is better thanks in advance..GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit. This hardware processes graphics display on your screen so a good GPU will give you good display. CPU is the Central Processing Unit. This hardware is the heart of your unit. This controls the speed or processing time of your applications to run. So a good CPU and a good GPU will make your unit operate really fast.

Im planning to replace my Wave with this phone but I've read in the SE ray's forum that Arc has wifi issues. Can someone share me their experience if they have this issue? (I wish Arc doesn't have any of those issues I've read coz I dont know what phone to buy anymore if Arc has it)
Thank you in advance
