My friend got his Xperia Arc yesterday and just awesome. Fast, responsive, screen is simply beautiful, camera and video are fantastic and truly enough design is I would say the most beautiful design I've ever seen. Since I am still enjoying my Xperia X10 and want to wait the OS upgrade to 2.3 (Gingerbread), perhaps I will wait SE's dual-core and hopefully with video-call camera. SE rocks!!!
I love my xperia brand...just waitin to see wats new from SE cuz am stil rockin my x10...just love the UI from sony..after d update from SE on x10 den ill knw...I love d arc a lot...
haters if u hate SE don't waste ur tym here

my moni goes to SE forever
Siegfried, 29 Apr 2011NO DivX/ Xvid support.. no bluetooth 3.0..Download Moboplayer from market. Will play all video files.
Arc is really great phone the only thing bothers me is its internal memory just 320mb and when i donwload the android application most of them are stored in internal memory instead of 8gb SD card and doesnt ask for the option where to store. If it continues like that the internal memory will end soon.THEN..?? Any suggestions on that???
I've been a SE Fan through-out since i always enjoyed da "walkman", "awesome camera" and "shortcut keys for browsing". However, I always found da battery life was not that good. I wanted 2buy xperia mini but smbody said evrythin is gud but battery life. What about Arc?Is it lasting?
this phone is the best phone i have used so far.. one question though, my phone doesnt play .acc and wma music format.. i just red the specs it should play this formats.. any comments>
i have seen this phone. its awesome. but lack of video calling facility. i'll wait for the next model of arc with video calling facility
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2011Arc looks much better than Galaxy 2. G2 is just another copy of iPhone's design.don simply say for other model phone..all phone got own nice function
hai SE fans,lot f guys r here to post bad comments about SE,especially samsung fans.they r really got feared in the SE technology,samsung phons hav poor design and bad build quality.they are jelous towards SE BOYS.for a gud build quality sony spend 90% effort and 90% money ,but samsung gave 0% effort and 10% money on their design and meterial quality.so quality devices are always costly.like sonyericsn.samsung spend a few amount of money in design and quality,and they try to include more specs and they forgot to improve the quality bt only hav the quantity.samsung phons hav enough specs,bt they lack beauty and quality and not even a single beautiful device for them,so they are angry towards SE.this is the real reason why samsung boys hate se,SONYERICSSON TOP ALL OTHERS ARE DUPE,THUMBS UP FOR QUALITY,ie SONYERICSSON
Hey, I recently bought SE Arc, I'm slightly pissed off since it doesnt provide Contacts Grouping option. :(!!! And the SE Companion doesnt provide a option to take backup of the mobile completely. Do you guys have any answers for this? Pls share... I cant even see the contacts vcf files getting listed in the directories... :( I'm losing flexibility i had in Symbian phones...
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2011Arc looks much better than Galaxy 2. G2 is just another copy of iPhone's design.I agree with you ..the only thing samsung knows to do is copy apple and motorola....and the arc is a really awesome phone...1 prob no video call cam.
Diehard, 29 Apr 2011I found this opinion on x10 forum , That's not an issue at all. I've been using this phone ... moremy friend...keep your phone side by side with the arc and you can understand the difference..the arc is definitely better in terms of display with the bravia engine off....i compared with the x10 ....and with the bravia engine on you can understand the sharpness....it matters my friend...you cn check videos on youtube with bravia engine on and off and i x10 with hd wallpapers the gradients become blurry becoz of 65k and in arc the same gradient backgrounds donot become blurry....thanks..am not arguing with you my friend...just am telling you ..do check it out
Hey guys..I am planning to get an SE xperia arc from my friend in Uk while he is coming to India. I am really a fan of this wonderful device which tops the list of Android devices on date.
Off late after my choice I came to know the phone lacks a front camera..Now friends is that a great problem?
I wil use my phone for web browsing,music,video etc..
3G video call is not that common in India yet..correct me if am wrong.
Also, can this secondary camera be used for video chat in yahoo,gtalk etc in the phone..through a Wi-fi connection..
I wil use m phone for at least 3 years,wil i be making a wrong choice by missing the front cam?
The fact s arc such beautiful a device & gud n specs too,only d frnt cam dept. poses worry.
Looking forward 2 ur replies pals:-)
I found this opinion on x10 forum ,
That's not an issue at all. I've been using this phone since July last year. The 16M color is just a marketing hype
It's not an issue at all, at least for me. 65k & 16M colors of the same type of LCD screen doesn't have much difference. Better check it out by comparing it with vivaz's screen, it's 16M colors but w/lesser resolution (360x640 vs 480x854) than X10. IMO, screen resolution is more important
Well said mate, 16M reality display of ARC is the best marketing hype around, they charge money for the same quality types, thats why we have to say that the reality display is on Xperia is just a hype and a brand name to suck some money,it is a waste of money buying the ARC
But its all about what they about SE 16M displays, yes they not much differences than their 65K,
but 16M from other brands are very much ahead of 65K,s or even 16M from SE phones.
I wrote this review based on SE fans and other brand fans reviews
The sony ericsson xperia arc is very beautiful and this is the best android phone in this year ! .. :D
Arc is a great Android phone. It may not be head to head with those dual-cores devices. But bottom line...it can deliver. Great for what it can do.
