[deleted post]Appu : You need to install SWYPE keyboard on Xperia arc . I installed it using step by step instructions and there were no issues . I agree video playback capture is beautiful and so is photo quality . The wide screen aspect is really enjoyable even when playing games . I use a transcend 8gb Class 6 card which is better for HD video write speeds . The device works perfectly without any glitches and I can give a 9/10 score to it . I bought mine from Letsbuy.com at 24659 with a icici discount offer last month .

I also experienced some random reboots but no more such problems after I have changed my memory card to a 32gb class 10 one.

[deleted post]nick please tell me what the hell you would need a duel core for at this time anyway ,
Got mine this afternoon, not many where left in the stores in this island but I managed to get one of the last.
Didn't need it because my old SE was still fine after almost 4 years but decided what the hell I want this!
I was a bit undecided because of price and because in the store there also was an Vivaz which is hard to find here and they are also good phones and much smaller and by now, much cheaper but I went for it.
I have to say, it is not as good as people in here say it is, it is even BETTER!
Loving it although still a bit lost with android because this is my first android phone.
Huge bonus, thought it would be too big for my pocket but it is great! Very comfortable in pocket because it is so slim and the battery looks to be powerful enough.

Cell, 15 May 2011No one can say that SGS2 in not loaded with feature nor the SE arc is better in features and p... moreWell said Cell. Its the practical approach.
I totally agree that most of time we are ridiculously arguing about the "features" which we can hardly differentiate with our naked eyes. I am sure manufacturers are having a great sales figures by just changing minute details of couple of features. infact i doubt even if they r changing (upgrading) any.
The cell phone technology reached a stage where they r just playing with some minute details. For the past two years there is no evolution. I seriously doubt if there will be any till next couple of years.
What i mean by evolution in this context is that, we have come a long way from brick sized hard key phones to wafer sized smart phones which are nothing less compared to or pc's.
But from last couple of yrs we r stuck here fighting for minute details. I wonder what could be the next big change in phones. Is it "wafer sized smart phones to invisible (nano) super phones!!!
Got this phone for free so I like it. :)
Only thing is that it heats up whenever I use it.

Then again I also have an N97 with that waste of space 32gb and have to say that even for today's standards 8gb is plenty enough... or did you need more? LOL
