[deleted post]We will buy a dual-core Arc when android uses its power to the full. Dual core or Quad core when they will come are only useful when the software utilizes them to their max. You got your answer now?
[deleted post]SE goes step by step not immediately picks the crap from the market and place in their phone. They take time to give us the best and if you don't like the phone it is your opinion so keep it to your self. This forum was not made to fight on companies or mobiles this was made to help each other out. So only people who own the handset are likely to comment. Secondly what is the innovation of Samsung they only pick chips from the market and assemble them if you say AMOLED is their achievement its ok that they worked on OLED to make them better but don't deny the fact that the first one to make the OLED platform was SONY and has achieved many goals and they have one of the best OLED's in the world the only thing is that they do not put them in their phone because they have BRAVIA Engine and OLED is way expensive. Pioneers are not always successful but in the electronics SONY was the pioneer of many products and is successful. So Sir please avoid fights.
AAA, 29 May 2011Any body tried any video player which plays all kinds of formats....like mkv..in arc.pls anybo... moreI am using MoboPlayer. I had tried RockPlayer previously but I later switched to MoboPlayer as we can use touch gestures to control volume and screen brightness. So, even if by default Arc supports only mp4 and 3gp formats, we can use MoboPlayer to make it play any format videos.
Dear haters, you cannot deny se makes good phone software.
You can only bash se for no dual cores, probably because you dont own arc & never enjoy it.
Btw, 2.3.3 is available for sg via pc companion.
I had X10 before and got excited but this one is even better. Even if with the same GPU like X10, the Gongerbread is doing a great job. All in all... is awesome.
[deleted post]My friend, for todays world, single core scorpion CPU of the Arc is more than enough. No need for expensive and battery firsty dual core.
Plus, dual core is still unstable and samsung phones with it suck in terms of sound, gps and camera.
So yes, I will buy one, sometime in the future when SE as made them work properly, till then, keep it as I am more than happy with my ridiculous sluggish and really small 1ghz scorpion processor on the arc.
What will you do with a dual core in a phone anyway? LOL
i brought se xperia arc. this phone is rocking . i prefered this single core mobile instead of dual core mobile due to the following reasons:
- There is no proper perfect infrastructure and Operating System capabilities to utilize the wholesome goodness of this hardware upgrade.
- While we have heard about battery melting and battery blasting, a super powerful dual processor would mean risking a lot with the safe usage of a mobile battery.
- Upgrades in other mobile departments are pending, which makes the technology underutilized.
I guess people in france think sgs II with dual-core is outdated. They already have tri-core long before samsung was founded.
hi! everybody im using arc and while surfing I came to know about sw update,but.when i connected my arc to laptop for update it showed ur phone is already update can sumone help me will be very greatful m staying india thank u
just bought my arc!love it. still have to go through all the functions though. 3 premium games are free with this - am i right? how to access them?
finally very happy to have a arc. i cannot understand why so many sgs2 fans are messing around on arc form .2 different phones 2 different setups .
sgs2 fans just for your information sgs2 has so many errors .but so far arc is fine .am a SE fan for years now.they never copy others designs like sgs2 copies apple iphone 4 .
Angel, 30 May 2011Should I or should I not buy this phone - That is the question...
NOTE this is NOT a review i... moreThis is a good comment. I am not fan for any brands, owned Nokia, SE, and Moto phones before. This year, a lot of my friends just want to wait for the dual core phone to come out then bought the single core phone with cheaper price, Desire, Incredible, Pro, Neo, what so ever. I just happenly got an Arc which I like about its shape. We do knows the pros and cons of single and dual core. But that's not the only factor when we bought a phone.
And when searching some comments and info on the net, then seeing those sammy fans keep attacking other product on other phones forum. They are more annoying then the Apple's fans. Although I don't like Apple close ecosystem, but I do respect them to produce most part of the phone (hardware and sonftware wise) base on their own, that's not easy. The SGSII just base on the success of Android. And from my point of views, Android are about open and different choices, no such things as 1 phone or brands that monopoly it.
ps3braviavaio, 31 May 2011That true man..i dunno why they come here bragging bout their phone to us who bought xperia ar... moreYeah man..Samsung has no innovations at all..And still many ppl are saying that Sony Ericsson doesnt give updates.But see the Xperia x10.It came out with 1.6 and now going to be 2.3.And Arc just been released for 2 months and immediately an update for better performance and touch responsiveness..What a blast by Sony.Really a good move by me whom was having a nokia 5530 which always crashes and freezes frequently..Tnx Sony Ericsson

How is the keyboard for text message? I had X10 before and the texting keyboard part was small and not that responsive. That was a huge disappointment. Now I have HTC HD 7 phone and the keyboard is really responsive and fast. But I dislike the picture quality of that phone and the fact that I can't put my music as my ringtones. I know the SE Arc is expensive and I don't want to waste money buying if the keyboard is bad.

For all of you dragging about the dual core, it seems you won't enjoy it powers since you need to get a quad after all ...
check this out :
i quote : "Interestingly enough, the dual-core processors just began to roll out as mass market devices. We haven't even stopped raving about them yet and here we go - NVIDIA's latest project makes them look obsolete."
value your money get a cheap but powerful enough phone for the moment (right phone for the right time for the right price) and than go for quad (of course after it will be crucial to user) that why i never buy a new tech unless it is to be used.... poor samsung fans put your money for nothing and drag about it...
