One of us really should visit a eye doctor.
the design is excellent, screen is good but unmatch superamoled plus, nova display,
Ex mor sensor not so good search it in google,
No front camera to make videocall
Lack of internal memory
only single core
ONLY scratch resistant,
lg optimus black,sgs2,N8,motorola atrix is 100% guaranteed than crap SE arch,
For Those Who planned to buy arch review it 100x before you bought,
Appu, 17 May 2011Tnx in advance ajmail....This is one of the best device for me...Previously I had an xperia x1... morebuy an android phone which isnt sony ericsson then. most come with tons of internal memory, but as usual, sony ericsson strive to be the worst
Ajmal Basheer, 16 May 2011MoboPlayer.Tnx in advance ajmail....This is one of the best device for me...Previously I had an xperia x10 and I trade-in with this beauty..Really nice mobile..One thing that Sony Ericsson bothers me is the low internal memory..But it doesnt matter as long as the phone is not hanging...
Best camera? Android phone? Are you insane? Camera takes c*ap pictures, 1.X mb in size, lacking detail, full of chroma noise/ And also 1 core cpu. fail. Arc is only about its design, really!

This is my opinion :
This is indeed the best looking device I have ever seen! But this is not strange since It's a Sony. What's even better is that the 8 mp camera with the new sensor will keep the X10 successor the best android phone and camera. So this device will have a brilliant camera, stunning display, the latest version of android plus the sexiest design you could ever get!! I don't think it could get better than this, but wait let's not forget it's a Sony which means you will still get the premium and classy feeling while holding it. Brilliant job SE! I am indeed impressed.
[deleted post]That is rather strange... all my friends with X10, and X10 mini or pro are very happy with them and do not have hardware problems.
Well being it only 5 months older you don't need to worry as warranty takes care of everything.
[deleted post]go to sony ericsson.com choose your phone x10 go to software downloads and update service, you can update your software , and possible correct the issue , or call sony ericsson support , do you have atnt or the x10i international version , you can send the phone in through sony ericsson under warranty if you bought it from a reliable source , they may have you send in proof of purchase

MP4 format has better quality over avi format even WMV has better quality as Avi format.
[quote]6- the internal memory of G2 climbs to 32 GB and that is so great and can be expanded to 64GB if you choose the get an additional external memory card[/quote]
It just support up to 32 GIG.
[quote]7- front camera in general is not so important for me and to many people as it is expensive to use on many carriers to make video calls so it will be only used by few[/quote]
I agree, it's just extra feature over the Arc.
[quote]8- usually SE phones comes only with window office viewer and the Pdf liscence to be purchased separately, but on G2 is already there[/quote]
Not importent, you can donload those program.
[quote]9- to be honest the cameras on any mobile phone does not deliver the real photography parameters that we require since the sensors and the lenses are so small and I dont find it really a heavy weight argument feature on any phone ,,[/quote]
De Exmor sensor has many advance over all phones.
[quote]10 - yes the screen makes a big difference to the user and I think that both screens are ok for a normal user.9/quote]
The screen from the Arc with the Bravia engine, has alot more reality colors/depth and sharpst in all phones. The Bravia engine is advance feature, non single phone can't compate it.
Sun, 16 May 2011If you have been directly offended by someone you have every right to answer! I would do the... moreMy case is something like u...
As u can't take any direct attack on sammy, I just can't accept any attack on SE...
Btw... I already said that I accept sgs2 is the best(for now)
it has been a while that we can see these nice discussions on forums about opinions for phones and recently the competition is between Arc and G2
I always say that I am a big SE fan and I have so many phones in my collection but let be honest for a while that G2 has more advanced features that the ARC
let me tabulate my thoughts :
1- as both mobiles has the same size , many of the normal people that do not understand the technology in depth will purchase the cheapest one and also the most beautiful one .
2- its also depends on publicity and reputation , and usually normal people are driven to the brand that proved by years that offers the best in all aspects , such as service , approach and brand continouity.
3- as SE fan I love so much Samsung phones also and let be honest that this competition among phone companies makes this industry to blosom and be as it is today ,,, imagine if there wasnt any competition then ther would not been this extreme efforts to have the most advanced pproducs as we have tooday .
4- SE Arc has many features that makes it inferior to Samsung G2 and this is my opinion depending on my requirements on the phine usage .
5- G2 has DivX and Xvid players were I require all the time to play my films on the phoen , whereas SE Arc has MP4 only ans this makes the limitations for the Video format ,,,
6- the internal memory of G2 climbs to 32 GB and that is so great and can be expanded to 64GB if you choose the get an additional external memory card
7- front camera in general is not so important for me and to many people as it is expensive to use on many carriers to make video calls so it will be only used by few
8- usually SE phones comes only with window office viewer and the Pdf liscence to be purchased separately, but on G2 is already there ,
9- to be honest the cameras on any mobile phone does not deliver the real photography parameters that we require since the sensors and the lenses are so small and I dont find it really a heavy weight argument feature on any phone ,,
10 - yes the screen makes a big difference to the user and I think that both screens are ok for a normal user.
regardless of all the differnces between the two phoes still I am considering to purchase both phones as both are icons in the mobile world today ,,,
please , please let us stop these childish fights over same subjecs over and over again and let us appreciate that the technology has reached to hights that made the world a better place ,, not to forget thhat all mobile companies have contributed to this industry and all to be appreciated for their efforts
abhi, 16 May 2011If u beleive so much on mobile- review and Murtazin than what the hack r u even doing on Gsmar... moreIf you have been directly offended by someone you have every right to answer! I would do the same! But don't generalise! Answer directly to that person! Altought....I haven't seen eny direct attack to you!
Secondly....why are you keep talking about the future??? It's the present that matters! And in the present there is the unanymous oppinion that G2 is the best! The interest on Arena on G2 is huge!!! Arena says that right now G2 has no direct competitor....!!! Last year Samsung dominated with the I 9000 and wave...this will be again Samsungs year!
I dont care bout your phone.
Best indoor browsing=vaio series
Best indoor gaming/bluray=ps3/bravia
Best outdoor gaming=xperia play/psp(even this outdated device beat your so call superior phone in games term)not to mention upcoming ngp(psp2)
Best phones=xperia arc gr8 features gr8 camera pics even in pitch black can do what other droids do
Doesnt have anything like above=samsung
So guys if they think their phone is like god of all phones(is it just them?)let them be thats all they got
Been using Xperia Arc for 3 weeks now, it's a great phone. elegant design, fast enough for the applications i use, takes great pictures, nice audio. hdmi is a bonus for me. only missing is a secondary camera for video calls. also, its battery would only give you a day of moderate to heavy usage; need to charge it every night. All in all, still a good buy. specially if you are not quite a fan of "iphone-look-a-likes".
