So I m using the cell since 2 days ...i sold my galaxy s 9000 to buy dis one ... There are some thngs which I dont like or I woul prefer galaxy s or the galaxy s2 over the arc as..
1- the graphics card is laggy as compared to the galaxy s.
2- no support for other video formats.
4- no internal memory.
5-shorter battery life.
6- no stock task manager.
7- no stock file manager.
8- no un necessary home screen removal.
..but overall as excluding these things the fone is fabulous superb design super screen super music quality..but as d price is sony should have done or shoul do hard work to refine dis fone or to solve these particular flaws..

From there you can start messaging people. But do you think you really need to use the Whatapp? I don't use it. I do not know anyone who really uses it.

vikram, 05 Jun 2011can this be used as modem via data cable?
presently i use nokia and this feature is very us... moreyep if u mean tethering it can easily do it (just be careful ur carrier/service provider might charge extra for using it as a modem. unsure how they track it, but apparently vodafone AU charges for internet use through tethering.
Overall good phone, I expected the camera to be better at night, tried it in karaoke, was pretty bad, video was pretty good.
Had no problems with lag, gps works great, calling and music is good, also I think the loud speaker isnt loud enough, but that can also be dependent on quality of music. battery life could be better, oh and I suggest removing from the case when taking photos with flash as I noticed with the case on that the flash bounces off the case(i have a silicon one), and it produces bad images through that.
Plenty of great phones comming out and out atm, I would say all can be great depending on personal use and expectations, one thing I find good about the xperia arc is that it was way lighter than the iphone4, htc incredible s, htc desire hd (those were all the phones i got to compare it).
this phone has everything to be the best in the market except a front camera and that is a huge mistake from S.E. so many apps today let you communicate through that secondary camera.
sorry but you have lost a lot of potential customers with this omission. i'll bet the next phone out will have the same features plus a front camera! till then you lost me as a buyer

can you create folders on the menu page that comes up listing all the apps? or can folders be craeted only on the home pages?
also (i'm sure this has been answered before, but i missed it) - how to cope with all the apps running in the background (apps>running>the whole list comes up). does one have to stop each one manually every time?
have been using the phone for a week, and am fairly happy with the battery, camera and video. there is a bit of lag at times when switching from one page opertaion to another, but nothing of much concern.
haven't upgraded to 2.3.3 yet.
and ajmal - i can't seem to start the whatsapp thing - i mean it does get installed but it doesn't go beyond a message telling me that charges for 1 sms have been deducted from my balance!
Just restart your android phone twice a day and you will notice exceptional battery performance and backup . This is from my experience .
