Anonymous, 19 Apr 2011If an Arc user have given it a 10...who are we to oppose it. It's all about user experience.Ok, if a person gives 10 out of 10 for 1gHz,
there is no rating for him to give for an 2ghz,
if 1ghz is the max available he can give 10 out of 10
but if 2ghz exist it is No way, we can oppose him,
may be he is giving just because of his brand and voting to keep up his favorite brand famous,
it is just not only about user experience, rating is also based on fair comparison with in the same league

Siebatrone, 19 Apr 2011Only the design deserves 9.5, rating, others deserve only 8.5 + to 8.8 ratingIf an Arc user have given it a 10...who are we to oppose it. It's all about user experience.
Guys, I have upgraded to Xperia Arc and I am handing over my W995 to my wife. She will hand over her Elm to my mom so that my mom could get rid of her Nokia. And dad is already using my old W395. So, we're becoming a Sony Ericsson Family... LOL!!!
Sony Ericsson ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!
This phone isn't worth it. the very first thing that you should look at is the amount of RAM and internal storage. Install 3 or 4 apps and your phone will start the low memory message. If you love installing apps, then this phone is not for you.
wreck, 19 Apr 2011over-rated.? It should have been rated 9.5 atleast. Such a superb device.Only the design deserves 9.5, rating, others deserve only 8.5 + to 8.8 rating
Hey guys ... Apple sues samsung for copying Iphone 4... what a blow for samsung fans...who were crticizing SE...
Hope they learnt their lessons........Hats up SE. you are unbeatable!!!
Just tried the Arc... My God SE mean business now after making so many errors which cost them heavy.... Slim, light, and sexy. Excellent display to watch HD videos and the best sound you will get from a phone (I mean the quality not the quantity of the sound).....
Phonemaster, 19 Apr 2011damn this phone is over-rated!! wtfover-rated.?
It should have been rated 9.5 atleast.
Such a superb device.
I just cancelled my order because my uncle decided to sell his Arc. He bought it because he thought it was pretty, but he's a major noob. It's in perfect condition. I will have his device tonight for 400 euros. I can't wait. Is swype possible to download via Android market?
Phonemaster, 19 Apr 2011damn this phone is over-rated!! wtfLol! So was the sgs, it became the biggest selling mobile last year.
wedjat, 19 Apr 2011is it true this phone cant play movies that are downloaded from web??? which formats can it pl... moreWell if u have the web to download movies, then surely u can get a format converter? which converts certain formats of movies to other formats, much the same as a mp3 comverter does.
I bought the arc cuz of all the hype. I actually upgraded from ny HTC incredible S, a week of using the arc made me realise I actually downgraded!! Only good thing about this phone is the camera & nothing more. I used it for a total of 2 weeks & just today I finally upgraded for reals this time to the HTC desire S. If u guys are looking for a phone with an amazing camera & can compromise on the features of what a smartphone should be get it. But if u can compromise the camera then the desire a us ur best choice. I learned this the hard way after wasting arnd 400 dollars extra. But, I'm finally satisfied now with my desire s
