i love this phone...one of the best in the market...to those who are still chosing to buy a phone, i reccommend Xperia Arc.......
thunderstorm, 08 May 2011in bangalore where can i get it except univercell ?...and how abt the camera quality friends?...Try flipkart.com with cash on delivery option.
A lot of hype about the phone.
After using it 2 months here are the:
- no SW update for 2 months, since buying it
- main menu does not rotate to horizontal view
- inconvenient contacts favourites management and search for contacts (alphabet on the number keys in the phone view does not allow searching contacts - you have to use QWERTY which in inconvenient while driving)
- battery drains by end of the day (total usage with some surfing and active widgets ca 1.5 days per charge)
- no silencing on rotating the phone
- had to hardreset after a month as it became too slow
- leather bag accompanying the phone does not fit the earphones once connected
- only one scratch resisting sticker comes with the phone
- charger connector not the same as HTC mini USB! (always need to carry your own charges if colleagues have HTCs)
- a little slippery surface of the phone
- no SEARCH SERVER capability for e-mails (gmail nor exchange active sync)!!!
- mini SD card stuck under battery - no easy removal
-rather good video recording
- good screen

Kam , 08 May 2011Sent my Arc back to Orange UK due to Wifi issues and poor camera (In my opinion). To top it... moreNever thought that you can return a phone when on contract? Is it a new thing that they are doing?
haseeb wali, 05 May 2011I would suggest arc for you because Samsung always focuses on spec sheet not on quality i have... moreI can confirm that too. Samsungs are good on tech specs not on real performance.
Had about the same problems with mine
I love the totality of this phone.. almost perfect.. but what i hate on it most is that.. at times it just suddenly restarting and it really disappoints me specially if i'm in the middle of doing something important on the phone..is that to say(yyping a message, browsing and replying an email), I really dont know whats the problem.. Any help? ,
Its biggest disadvantage is absense of front camera (secondary) camera..
Sent my Arc back to Orange UK due to Wifi issues and poor camera (In my opinion).
To top it off the poor response I got from SE on their forum was euqally poor.
I do buy a phone to find issues as soon as you turn it and I don't expect to have to buy 3rd party software to "fix" an issue that Sony should have thought about before release....
I have little faith in the quality control efforts of manufacturers.....Sony Ericsson might as well call themselves Samsung!!!!
I think I'll wait for the HTC Sensation...I have never had an issue with my HTC Desire.
It's a shame, the Arc had a lovely screen and great ergonomics for such a large phone.
All those happy with Arc, I am happy for you but for one will put with what is supposed to be a retails version of the phone having issues.....I think we've all become a bit used to taking it up the axxx....
As consumers it's about time we flexed out buying muscle....Should phone manfacturers be allowed to sell items with bugs???...
I've said my bit, so I'm going off to enjoy the weather and eat some chocolate :)
just got my arc, my question is.. should i charge it before turning it on for the first time???
in bangalore where can i get it except univercell ?...and how abt the camera quality friends?...
Asem, 07 May 2011Hello everybody. I wanna buy a phone which will be better SE arc or i phone 4g ? Thanks in a... morePliz da SE, is not a simple smart but a while technology and the futur, other gonna follow
wow this great,I'm very interesting this hand phone because this body is slim and very good operating system..maybe I'll buy this hand phone haha
arc is the best phone i ever had. just posting this to help you guys out there who are still hesitant to buy an arc. amazed is the perfect term i felt after tested my arc
No need to trouble urself that much.. juz download Mobo Player or Rock Player from the Android market. Those players support almost every vid format
hey, got this phone about 3 days ago. nice screen, i like the phone, but im not liking the lagging atall, it doesnt just flow smoothly while scrolling. similar problems?
I bought this phone yesterday, can't decide whether to buy the silver or blue. but i bought the blue anyway... I really like this phone, super-slim - fits in you pocket. Super fast - no lags. And GREAT screen - bravia engine really works! My only problem is that it lacks the support for other video format, so i downloaded Any Video Converter and this fixed this problem. Overall I'm very satisfied with this phone because it looks unique... I'm an artist by the way so i don't like copycats!
why sony ericson not putting its all the great featurs in a one single phone? Like samsung galaxy2 and nokia n8. When SE releasing the complete phone latest walkman,cybershot camera,latest desplay,processor,latest playstation certified without missing any single featur on smartphone. I'm waiting SE price dosent matter for quality
