Loads of flaming here, please Samsung fans, remain at your forums.
I have a few fun apps I've found which do pretty well on my arc, mostly free:
Advanced task killer (payed): very good for battery life, lasts 2 days now with heavier use, with the free one all apps restart fast after closing and there are no settings to control them.
Rockplayer (free): good for video (also audio and flac)
Meridian (free): good for audio and flac (video not so much)
Please tell me that how to connect internet to my laptop via sony ericsson arc ?
Great phone, but I thought the placement of the power/camera button and the headphone jack were extremely annoying. And the ROM was too small.
Maybe I'll buy it again when the price drops.
Lol old something in late 40's not like 80 or 90 n they were trading in their HTC n overheard something like no value when resell bla bla bla leaved the shop soon as I got the phone
ps3, 10 May 2011For those who hate se arc go play somewhere else we know u guys just jealous of our arc the fa... moreEven old couples :O. Old people use mobiles too? NEVER???? As for trumping the HTCs maybe but I can say with confidance working at a phone shop aint seen an HTCcome back for a trade in yet but we've been inendated with X10 mini pros and Experia Plays. It's a shame too because SE used to make such reliable top end phones.
DD, 11 May 2011Dear Members, I wish to know if it is worth purchasing a Sony Xperia Arc in Mumbai,INDIA an... morexperia arc is the 1st smartphone for me coz im not into phones b4 just something bout this phone make me interested so far im happy this is my 1st android xperience while some bragging bout other phone with great cpu great gpu aww come on even that phone got great proces`r nice graphic wat game or movie can u play with that? god of war? gears of war? gran turismo?all the best games is either on consoles or handheld heck they dun even have resident evil games on it. besides arc has very nice display even from youtube HQ video ,gr8 camera ,gr8 video capturing can do stuffs like other droids so u dont need all great stuff on your phone is your life so complicated u need a phone that can do all things for you?its sony u talking about they been `making` electronics for over 50 years n u guys been `using` it like wat 5-10 years? they can even make a phone capable of playing ps3 or other intense graphics games if they want to but that will make peoples not buying their other product. so if u want to buy this phone just go for it. the phone got its own style n aura !
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.
