Arc is the ultimate multimedia device as SE call it, that doesn't mean that it's best in everything but we should be fair about it, arc has the most eye catching design and most customized UI and the most capable camera in low light which features continuous auto focus for 720P video recording, and it runs smoothly with no noticeable lag. so imo at this price range it's just awesome, nobody can ignore all these cool things except those who want to bash it.

They also don't recommend using it on other phones. I don't know what's the reason for it. It's a heavy technical stuff :-P
does anyone knows if this phone is already available in SE concept shop in sm mall of asia? and the price, please. thank you so much ;)

Arc and optimus have same OSes. Is it becouse it is not a sony ericsson?

Check out the real life videos of Arc, pro & neo shot during MWC(search on youtube) showing the killer performance of Exmor R in low light conditions.
Both r not outdated screens, only Atrix screen is outdated. See the gsmarena comparison between reality, super amoled, super LCD & clear lcd screens.
Reality screen of Arc is comparable to super amoled when viewed from top. But Atrix screen doesn't stand anywhere.
2.3 can even be run by a 600mhz processor and 256 mb ram. Android doesn't put any limitations for upgrading. So there is no benefit of processor & ram in upgrades.
No one buys a smartphone for talking. Arc's standby time is twice than Atrix proving that it can stand much longer than Atrix when used in other purposes.
1930 mAh is nothing bcoz Atrix has a power hungry dual core processor.
Arc's thickness is 8.7 mm. It's 10 mm only on the top. Got it ??
China doesn't have anything to do with build quality. iPhone is also made in china & chinese phones r also made in china. What do u have to say abt it ?
Will 1080p playback matter bcoz Atrix screen resolution is not even half of 1080p.
No need to buy memory card bcoz SE is already giving 8gb card in Arc.
Fingerprint reader with almost zero usability.
No carrier in actuality offers above 3mbps speed.
What abt those hefty amount of money u have to say for docks ??
I can buy one more Xperia Arc in that much money.
Arc will be available worldwide on 1st april. Got it ?

But anyway, i am going to wait for gsmarena reviews on them, then i will be able to decide easier, thank you so much for your friendly responses :-)

My opinion on optimus 3D - u should buy it over Xperia Arc if u can afford it but I don't think it's going to be any cheaper than galaxy s2. Optimus 2x is already on preorder and costs much more than Arc & optimus 3D is one step ahead of 2x. So it's definitely going to be costly.
abhi, 08 Mar 2011Yes... it has continuous autofocusThank you so much, you have answered all my questions except for the optimus 3D comparison versus arc, and tell me please, which one would you go for if they had same prices?
320MB internal storage means no hope for exciting updates(official or not) beyond Honeycomb.
I'm giving a comparison between Sony Ericcson Xperia Arc and Motorola Atrix....These are ALL facts and can be checked at “gsmarena’s” specifications.... Nothing here is my opinion.
Arc has a great 8mpx camera with more options. (Exmor R sensor is just a name, as there is no CCD lens, just a plastic lens, NO wide angle lens, No large camera sensor) Motorola Atrix only has a decent 5mpx camera. (Nokia N8 is the BEST camera phone)
Arc has a 0.2 inch larger display. Atrix has higher screen Resolution. Both have outdated LCD screens. (Sony's Mobile Bravia Engine is just a name, a sales gimmick, nothing else)
Different Android customizations, although both are fully upgradable. Motorola is more upgradable due to faster CPU, higher ROM and more RAM
