I got this phone 3 weeks back.
New to android then.
Now I'm saying this:
ARC is everything you ever wanted from an ANDROID.
Learn to use an Android.
Learn to choose which apps should run in background, which shouldn't.
Learn to drop apps that you barely use.
Dump the Class2 Stock microSD and buy a Class4 32G.
GET a good 3G data plan.
Learn to switch off features that consume battery.
Learn to love your phone. And it will love you back. Immensely.
Since the T68i I've been a Sony Ericsson fan, had a few minor detours but on the whole I've loved what SE do.
However. I owned Satio and after a few tweaks managed to make it into a half decent phone to add to its fantastic camera. SE let themselves down by using Nokia's symbian OS. I now have an X10 which I love dearly.
Ahead of time I knew there would be three contenders for my next upgrade, the Arc being the one I hoped would be the best choice re spec and camera. Alas, since the release of all three it seems the Arc is lacking somewhat in comparison to my other two choices, Sensation & Galaxy S ll. From what I've read on the other two threads it seems the Sensations camera isn't up to scratch but apart from that the Arc might not be as fast or as future proof as either the Sensation or the Galaxy S ll.
I get a feeling I might not be going for a Sony Ericsson phone this time but if I can be convinced by any of you guys I'm welcome to your opinions.

Ive had this Arc a few weeks and i am not impressed with the camera on it, my w995 was much better. The lack of zoom unless in 2mp(RUBBISH)and can't in video mode. Take a photo even being close to something and then zoom in and it just does not become clear the picture seems soft, hope there is something i can do to change this because i got the phone as they highly recommended the sony camera technology and screen,feel like going back to the w995 :-(
already had my arc, however there is no memo, task, and calendar application like other smartphone, hope there is available application to download.
I got my xperia arc a few days ago maybe almost a week. Its a great phone, but the battery life makes me frown upon it. I'm not sure if most android phones are like this, but it can barely survive a day even without using the internet or playing games in it...you have to constantly charge it (I bring my charger everywhere I go now).
I also hate how the speaker is behind the phone, I wish they were built on the sides (could have moved the camera button since its hard to hold onto the phone when pressing
