Can anyone tell me what the purpose is of having a (clear black panel on the Arc??
@abhi: they sacrificed the unnecessary viewing angle to make the screen less reflective, and thats great.
@jaidev: yes as abhi said the loud speaker has a very nice quality and loudness. sort the page by rating and you'll be able to see a long comment about what the Xperia Arc offers.
@jack x10: yes mate, every phone has it's own users.
@userNOTabuser: apart from look, Arc has bigger screen, lighter body, probably more RAM (i'm not sure), second mic for noise cancellation and stereo recording.these are main diffs imo.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2011That made me lol!Infact viewing angles r just for show in phones. Take an example-
Friend -> hey dude what's special in this phone ?
Me -> This phone has great screen. If u look at the screen from 90 degrees the picture quality will remain same.
Friend -> great!! but where r u gonna use those great viewing angles ???
Everything goes blank................... No idea at all !!!
Mory, 17 Mar 2011 Hey Guys..
What´s the difference between (X1a - X1i) (X2a - X2i) (X10a - X10i) The X1a and X2a is especially for North America .X1a has NAM 3G bands while the X1i has EURO 3G Bands. That is the only difference.
NAM models always have a higher price, its always been that way.
No performance changes
Unless you need NAM 3G the X1i would be a better buy, and euro spec phones are prone to more frequent updates .
Mory, 17 Mar 2011 Hey Guys.. What´s the difference between (X1a - X1i) (X2a - X2i) (X10a - X10i)'i' is for international version and 'a' stands for american version.
Nice one Abhi! What's important in a phone unit is it balance between technology and usability.
Yes, other handsets have the more better DualCore processor but that does not entail increase in speed unless programs/apps start utilizing dual threading. Unless dualcore processors follows the how the i7 series of intel works it will not give better speeds as the new intel processor do utilize the others cores to help in processing. Point two, this won't be needed as the Arc is meant for normal casual gaming unless one is planning to challenge the gaming portable (i.e NGP, 3DS)

Pasha, 16 Mar 2011from this link we can say taht realyti will be the same as super amoled plus,becuse it is defi... moreI really can't understand why viewing angles r so important for a phone.
Nobody watches movie in their phone from a 90/180 degree angle. No one operates their phone by keeping it at 90/180 degree angle. And if someone does this than it's one of the most weirdest thing to do !!!
It's a added benefit to have good viewing angles but for me viewing angles don't count at all.
exellen, 17 Mar 2011Pre-order has just started in Indonesia (March 16th), bundled with Telkomsel at price US$625.ok preorder ark for 626 but how much cost the x10 in the past in indonessia? maybe cost the same, IM just making some plans to buy the ark next month, mine cost 640 dlls, by the way people complaining about front cam , I never use it on my 5 prebious models with videocall so why now? x10 is amazing too with 1.6 or 2,1
both Neo and Arc are available for pre-order here in NZ as well. Neo is $200 cheaper than Arc. Neo my heart is with Arc but Neo gets extra brownie points bcoz of the secondary camera. can ne one share their opinions?? (apart from how awesome the Arc looks!)

all you need to do is installing a DivX player, so no big deal :-)
