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
[deleted post]the arc looks really really nice.
...but the hardware is rubbish compared to everything else on the market.
beautiful on the outside, horrible on the inside
any phones expert here can tell me how to change sms notification tone cos i downloaded one at zedge app and set it as notification tone but when i received sms the tone didnt change it still the same default tone...
will this phone eat a lot of its battery if we use the camera regularly.(keeping WiFi,3g etc off and having software like juice defender)
Well I know I said I was still very happy with my 4 years old SE Java phone and that is way must of SE fans talk wonders a about new phones but don't actually buy it because they don't feel the need to upgrade at every new generation, or at every 4 generations lOL... It is true that last year I wanted an X10 and didn't bought because my K810i was still almost as new and it is true it still is 1 year latter and so I shouldn't had bought an Arc and wait for whatever will come in the future but I liked it so much I just went mad and bought one... I surrender to the Arc.
Say what you want, it is a truly wonderful and awesome phone!
Bigger battery would be nice has I love a phone with long stand-by times but I guess it is ok, having slightly higher stand-by time than Iphone and dual core phones I guess.
this phone seems to have very small internal memory... wont tht be a problem to install applications?? cause i heard sumthng like android apps can only b installed to ur internal memory.. plzz help., planning to buy one soon....
Anonymous, 21 May 2011We're 0.1 behind SGSII for Design, wth? Yeah well thats how mature ppl are, this phone was like 9,9,9 and now its been voted down.
they wont admit to it, but they have been doing it for a long time.
It seems some samsung fanboys are messing up with their voting results.
How come wave got more votes than arc?
Wave is a good phone, but arc seems to be a really good phone.
Come on people lets make arc into the ratings it deserve. Vote.
Perfrmnce-10 (arc doesnt got 1080p and etc... so its less on features so 9)

Anonymous, 20 May 2011The "facebook inside Xperia" update is available already in the new Xperia mini(s) r... moreFirst of all, none of the new Xperia's r available so it doesn't matter if they have it or not.
Secondly i'm talking abt Xperia Arc here not minis.
Morover Facebook integration in Xperia Arc and Play will be brought by android 2.3.4(next week) and there will be no 2.3.3 version for these phones. That's what i'm sayin'...... hope u understood what I wanted to say...
