Anonymous, 03 Apr 2011with SE concentrating their promo on their Play phone, they seems to forgot this phone. this i... moreBrightness controll could come via a software update...
And people are going on and ON about the lack of a video call camera! If you REALLY need one, then go for something else...I myself prefer using skype on my laptop, in HD ! I think Ill only consider using video calling in cellphones once its HD quality, with NO choppy framerates! right now video calling is of terrible quality, even with facetime on the iphone.
I remember when video calling was once a big thing...But i promise, I only used it ONCE on my N73 back in the N-series days.
My only concern about this phone is the build quality...I think im going to have to buy a case for it(metal)
It does Not have secondary camera for video calling. So i am not gonna buy it. I would prefer neo.
just bought mine sterday from univercell chennai(india)...well i fell love with design of de phone..its realy look awesome,bright display better dan my x10...camera is impressive,its realy nice to watch videos in dis phone,speed,gingerbread...but i dnt like de loud speaker of dis phone it is not very loud,and music through headset also not gr8 compare to x10...it cost me 27000 with free Bluetooth headset....i saw play to but it cost more...any am happy with dis phone...
with SE concentrating their promo on their Play phone, they seems to forgot this phone. this is a great looking phone too bad it does not have secondary camera and brightness control feature, if it does then it would be complete.
When is this phone begin to sell in the USA? Why is it being sold in Europe and Asia and not in America? Just curious
ha ha ha. sony is to supply the camera module for apples i phone!
eat that apple fanbois
Tel2, 02 Apr 2011I seriously don't know why gsmarena choose to antagonize all SE phones, includin d SE play, ju... morelisten you snob! GSMArena is the only site that has so far the least (or even zero) biased reviews. They treat every phone like they own them in their daily life and treat them properly. And about the Xperia Arc, I like this phone and so do GSMArena as you can see this phone in their top 3 daily interest phones. Also their review tells that this a great, great, very great phone. Unfortunately this phone is coming at a time and situation dominated by geekylicious stuff such as dual-core processors, very powerful graphics, HDMI, 3D cameras and displays, etc. and as follows. So dont worry. GSMArena is also concerned like you only due to its availability now in a crowded sea of ultra-geeky smartphones. So, if you like it, then buy it. If not, then dont bother nitpicking about it. I have this phone and I LOVE IT despite some of its flaws. And I also agree with their this review. So go for what your heart wants. No harsh feelings I ever meant to you.
I think it's okay there are no front facing camera, but there is one thing that make me feel disappointed, why there is no auto brightness for the arc
Seylan, 02 Apr 2011Misty silver or midnight blue? Hmmm....?Most review even GSMarena's preview (not review), they preferred Misty Silver than the Midnight Blue as the blue is a fingerprint magnet. Once both colors are in front of you, from there you can actually decide which one is best for you. Like when I bought my X10, I choose the white X10 against the black.
I think the stats is awesome for this phone...but the pics...they seem to be a bit oversharpened...especially if you look at the photo comparison tools...
wonder if it'll easily break in the middle though :(
[deleted post]So you are talking about the camera only. If you had older Samsung phones and you say that those have a weak camera I believe you. Example my Omnia HD can take awesome photos and videos. Samsung was the first mobile phone manufacturer who made a 10 MP camera phone with 3x optical zoom, so they are good. :) SE is also very good in terms of camera. Motorola is average, HTC is average.
AnonD-422, 01 Apr 2011 Seeing ARC´s design there is nothing left to say . i believe tht ARC have first class q... moreDon't tell me that Samsung is on a ZTE level LOL! I am NOT only a Samsung fan, but I disagree with your statement. They are good, and they are on the SECOND place in sales. By the way I don't want to fight with you guys, because I like SE too!! :) As I said I like Samsung too, I own a Samsung, and they are great. Some Samsung phones have a weak signal(example my phone). This is sad and annoying, but I am sure that the newer devices have a better signal. )
jps, 02 Apr 2011OMG...OMG....again no smart dialing, SE team has gone crazy, dumb or what....!!!??? I immediat... moreYes, there is NO Smart dialing, but this is so big problem lol?? :P I can live without that feature. :))
About the front facing camera, they did a mistake, but you can buy the Neo, or Neo Pro, as I know those have a Front facing camera. :)
