[deleted post]First of all dude, Gsmarena didn't compare Arc with G2 or optimus 2x bcoz it's not fair to compare HD video recording with full HD.
Btw, if u remember Gsmarena also said that World's best smartphone title will soon go off the G2 due to introduction of new HTC phones with much better processors than G2.
Also, Xperia Arc's image quality is spot on without even a single defect but G2 camera captures over saturated coloured images.
G2's gaming performance(graphic performance) is also very poor for a dual core processor.
Samsung won't be able to sell G2 more than last year sales of G1. This time other manufacturers have also released/announced competitive or better smartphones than G2. A lot of people have already gone for motorola Atrix, lg optimus 2x phones while many r waiting for other announced phones from motorola and lg. A big % of people r also waiting to buy dual core phones from HTC. iPhone 5 is going to be released in june or july which is going to sell like super duper hotcakes. Many people r buying SE single core new Xperias and many r waiting for the dual core ones.
Last yr galaxy s was the only phone standing in the market with nice specs and performance but this time all other companies have really great phones to offer. All this ensures much low sales of samsung G2.
Morover, SE 2010 didn't made that comment against Samsung, so replying him by showing so called superiority of samsung is not good at all.
I have the Arc & do love the screen & camera & is very quick but for me it is just a bit big & hard for 1 handed use like my HTC Desire.
The buttons are way to close to the bottom of the phone & there is virtually no gap between the buttons & the start of the screen, which makes my thumb hurt after a while trying to use 1 hand. There should have been more of a gap between the buttons & the start of the screen, there is plenty of space above the screen & they should have moved the screen up the phone a bit to make the handling easier.
Might swap for the Neo in July or whenever it comes out. Very good camera.
So this phone does not operate on Tmobile 3G 1700 frequency?! BUT the X10 does?! Is this phone even released in US yet?
Another video where the Arc wins in the camera category! Well done Sony, the reason you have fans is because you provide true real quality not only empty specs that means nothing.
Enjoy for now, the Arc is on the left and the iphone 4 is on your right :

AnonD-417, 09 Apr 2011we're going off topics on production and creations of technology. this should be a phone forum... moreRAM and ROM r commonly thrown about terms when phone companies sell their phones but how much is enough and what does it actually affect.
ROM: Read Only Memory -
It’s essentially computer memory that does not require power to store it’s data (non-volatile). In terms of a smartphone, it’s the internal memory where the OS is
stored. From what we’ve gathered, the internal memory is just Flash Memory (a special type of ROM) partitioned into two parts, one for the OS and the rest for apps to use. So,the OS partition essentially is true ROM.
RAM: Random Access Memory:
This is where current
processes that are running are stored and keep the data they need immediately available to them. This is the memory u see when u run any of the task manager showing u currently running apps and the available mem.
In other words, ROM is like your file cabinet where you store all your folders and files if you use an office context to explain and RAM is the secretary that you hire to find these files when you need.
Running low on ROM Memory
If you are low on ROM Memory, it means you cannot install more applications on your phone unless you delete one or more applications that already installed - in case the phone does not allow you to store apps in external memory.
Running low on RAM Memory
If you are low on RAM Memory, it means that total applications running in the background is maxed out. This will greatly slow down current phone usage or the current apps you are running. You need to close some of these background apps to free up RAM Memory.

Hi..could anybody pls temme abt d music output of this phone(or is it d same as xperia x10)? as i'm lookin to buy this phone in a few days n i lik'd all other features..pls anybody do reply:)
we're going off topics on production and creations of technology. this should be a phone forum.
still I reposted my question, still waiting for answers
*what is ROM and RAM and how it affect the phone ?
*there's some comparison about LCD screen and SUPER AMOLED, what is the difference of the both types of screens? is it just the colour and display ? or has it got to do with the sensitivity of the touch as well? what about the burn-in I heard of?
*I understand that downloaded apps can be saved in memory card and does not affect the internal memory, but there is some apps that requires the phone's internal memory. so does lagness of the phone affected in this factor? is there possibilities, for example showing sign of lagness with the free internal memory is low ?
regarding the battery life,
*does LCD or SUPER AMOLED screen affects the battery?
*why does android operating system are said to have low battery management ? which operating systems are at best of battery management
* what does the CPU functions as? I heard a lot about dual core and single core, what's the difference of dual core and single core? Is it for gaming purposes only or does it improves the smoothness of the phone performance and other aspects as well?
I really hope I would receive clear and detailed replies from anyone out there who knows about it, I'm really interested into getting a good phone for myself but I'm not that wealthy to make the wrong choice. it's one chance and I consider all my factors in it.
I hope this few questions posted could be a discussion as well for further understanding to the other GSM arena viewers. thanks for taking time reading this post from a confused phone user =)
