I wish to know if it is worth purchasing a Sony Xperia Arc in Mumbai,INDIA and that too when all the market for new smartfphones is emerging with new upgrades and add-ons. I wish to buy a phone that will be worth buying right now and at least for next 3 years will be up to the mark. sounds quite high in expectations.But still need a suggestion abt the Xperia Arc or any other phone except SAmsung coz i have had a bad experience with 3 samsung products.Pls give ur sugesstions over proper brands.
Req.:touchscreen phone (android based) dual camera,and rest all the entertainment enabled device.
Budget < (INR) 29K.
i am not much into the talking so basic communicationis the only req.
Thanks a lot to whoever reads and replies.
At least it looks better than the Galaxy line-ups, Samsung fan boys should just stay quiet coz this is gonna make heads turn when you pull it out, and when u pull a Galaxy out (cept Tab), they'll all shout, of it's another Iphone ~
I bought Xperia Arc a couple of weeks back. Was using Nexus One before.
Besides the 'cool' look, it has to impress me yet. Cant make phone calls nor send messages - the 2 main features of any decent phone. The 'contacts' and the 'phone' don't respond! Everything else is good. Can someone tell what am I not doing right?
Happy User, 10 May 2011Hi guys Is there any way to turn off the vibration in dialpad?thank youOpen up the keyboard anywhere then press the settings located in the keyboard beside the enter button. The press vibration on keypress. Or something. All keyboard settings is in that menu
I just can't wait to buy one of these
I am most looking forward to the outdated LCD screen with its washed out colours and high battery drain.
[deleted post]you're right with the fact that it was one of the best selling handsets and it probably is a good handset. But I wasn't really talking about that. In the forum of that handset it says there was an automatically created way of voting 10 from several pc's or servers to create it's high rating. It only looks strange to me that this handset has got lost it's good rating in just 2 days! And it is a huge co-incident which handset is p1 now...
But on topic now: does anyone know if it is easy to replace the housing? I haven't found photo's and or a walkthrough for that.
Sun, 10 May 2011Durability and design??? Looks like main focus is not on the specs,features....but on looks! W... morethey aren't girlfriend but they can get u one (same example 2000 BMW vs. 2012 Kia? let's c u gettin any girl in the Kia)... and for the specs and features already explained myself i got a SGS1 and my friend had a HTC although my phone was loaded and faster but still we used the same apps maybe mine was faster a little bit so what... as for durability wellll Duuuhhh of course let's u after a while using a loaded phone with so many issues, and arc isn't inferior i told u in a normal experiments the dual core will be slight faster than 1 core unless there will be software just for dual core(which there's not for time being) and what are the extra features that will significantly let SGS2 be better than arc the screen yeah right the diff is obvious arc will turn the red color into rose but samsung don't...
comparing the price group GSMARENA put @end of any device SPEC. i notice this : THE ARC is cheaper than NEO by round 20 EUR
Very rapid downgrading of se arc along with neo and play in the ranking is not acceptable and beleivable.im doubtfull that it be an act performed by gsmarena itself in favor of samsung phones.
arc is awesome in every department and also real.life performance is as silk but wat about neo? same specs as arc with a slight difference but the camera and loudspeaker is the worst thing i have got in a high end phone like neo. read the review of neo carefully and all of u will understand the fact. se r not constant with quality the provide. they should release one phone in a year as iphone and that should b perfect as arc with no flaws in any department
For those who hate se arc go play somewhere else we know u guys just jealous of our arc the fact that this new sexy beast starting to get attention from old timer even a Newbie like my self just like when I go bought this phone there were peoples buying too heck there even an older couples trading their HTC overthis phone.
Cell, 10 May 2011Just to remind every1 that we're dealing with phones, so it makes me laugh when they talk abou... moreDurability and design??? Looks like main focus is not on the specs,features....but on looks! Where are we? In a beauty contest?...Phones are tools not your girlfriends! The most important things are features and raw power! I preffer 10000000 times an acceptable looking phone like G2 loaded with the best features available for a mobile phone then an inferior phone who just looks better!
Just to remind every1 that we're dealing with phones, so it makes me laugh when they talk about which screen is better well yeah right a human eye would c the deep difference, same for the dual core, until they invent software that requires this power i think a nokia 500MHz would do the trick (so a SGS2 will open a game in 4 seconds but arc needs 5... and i'm loosing a lot of money in the stock market because of that), so what matters here every1 is that 90% of us needs a phone that have a good look with a good OS and perform with the current flow with sufficient features so 90% of the phones from SE, samsung, moto, lg... have those phone so it's all about durability, well i'll give 1 month and just go and check the samsung posts and u'll c the issues (it started with the heating of the device during a call and it's true) it's not that SE are Japanese made they are Chinese same as iphone but the quality control what matters nowadays, would u buy a KIA or BMW? (and BTW KIA would have so many specs that 50% is useless)...
what i mean is that i know that SGS2 is loaded but i'll go with SE arc, Iphone, nokia for durability and design, look and i won't regret it. and gsmarena please post an objective review about SGS2 cause as a geek it's the best phone but as a regular guys it's a rack, and BTW what make a phone so good is the OS like Apple with their Iphone, every one i know got their iphone coz of the apps and the store not of the supper retina screen...
abhi, 10 May 2011What u r saying is also true that so much decrease in voting results is completely unbelievabl... moreYou are right, a couple of months ago the samsung wave had an average of 9.2 for months in a row! Completely unbelievable, and now this phone is decreased from 8,9 to 8,6 and the votes are suddenly from 42.000 to almost 44.000 in 1 day, while a couple of days ago there was a kind of lag in the votes for the Arc, resulting in about 500 new votes each day. How can it suddenly increase to 2000 votes in 1 day and the average voting results suddenly are quiet poor?!?!
Mobilemaster, 10 May 2011Yes, I have an idea. 3.1! The 2.4 you mentioned is already exists! I think that the Ice cream ... moreI have to refuse your suggestion, people will confusing it with Windows 3.1. How about Android 4.3...?
