I have been using this fone for 3 weeks now and I love it!!! Battery life is surprisingly good. Of course you cannot expect a smartfone to last a day if you keep the default settings on. But my arc lasts more than a day with heavy internet usage. If I keep internet/gps off then the battery last 1 and half to 2 days wich is superb! I would recommend people to keep GPS WiFi 3G EDGE turned off when not in use and see the battery do wonders. keep widgets for each service. also download task killer apps that wud kill any background app u r no longer using. If you follow these steps, any smartfone will last more than a day. I have switched many smartfones and Arc seems to be giving the best battery life of all. Credit goes to Gingerbread power management I suppose.
Looks are gr8 but Im a bit skeptical about the muscle of this mobile. the plastic looks cheap and the battery cover finishing is not good as your fingerprints become prominent there.
Great display, superb music, superb camera... this fone put a whole in my pocket but it was really worth it. Auto Brightness feature is also enabled in retail version. Plus my set came with a free HDMI cable. Hats off SE... u have created a marvel!

Xperia ARC ..number 1 .....!!!! http://www.techradar.com/new... moreYes techradar is right with the review,yes its nice in the hand as i tried in a shop BUT i cant get one because they have sold out where i am.So i will have to wait and just read the reviews of others using Arc and be just slightly jealous.
Is there a software program on the android market that could play avi and divx videos for the sonyerricsson arc?
And if there is a program
could it play 720p videos or what?
Thanks in advance
Another nice add of the amazing Arc :D

Anonymous, 23 Apr 2011I fully agree with you, only in real life circumstances we can see if a phone is good or not. ... more
I think the neo is a winner here! It has a much comfortable size, front camera, better battery life and better price.
If you don't mind the super sexy looks of the Arc than go for the Neo hands down :)
The Arc, Neo, Play are best sellers here in Canada anyway.

There are s0 many annoying Samsung Iphone and LG user trying to put down this beautiful device. Sony Ericson Users don't bother on checking out other cellphones because we are satisfied with our device. They just don't get it. Sony delivers "QUALITY" which other products don't have. You'll know this if you have ever used SE.

S/E made a public statement in which they mentioned that the stock will be limited during this unfortunate period. E.g. in my country it's not even in stores yet.
