Anonymous, 02 Mar 2011Yes Front camera is very useful and entertaining.missing it will be a draw back for ARC. Front facing camera is used on an average of 10% to 30%, but i have never seen a person video calling each time and every day, it is used for far distance calls for example which is an occasional thing, or for two dumb friends living in the same city who want to see each other all the time.
I would gladly sacrifice the front facing camera for the slim wasteline, because i really rarely use it for testing purposes. If u dont that ur device is slim and lightweight then go for the Neo.
AphelX, 03 Mar 2011Pretty much the Xperia Arc does not have the secondary call cam because of it's thinness. Perh... morearc is much better than play compare and see them plus play is so breakable only 5 mp no face or smile detection no hdmi out, arc is the best choice i'l go for arc
Pretty much the Xperia Arc does not have the secondary call cam because of it's thinness. Perhaps a sacrifice to the phone's Arc design. Still aiming to get this or the Play. Nice one SE!

But it is very good in other features - UI, pics, vids, web surfing, cams, games, etc since phones don't get support for dual-cores at the moment.
No phones have all features.
sonyericsson phones are beautiful.!!
Arc is one of the perfect example....
Its screen is good....
And is one of d thinest anroid phone....
This phone will fail big time if it released in the US without a secondary camera.
I've been using SE phones in the past. Now in the US, we're paying a 4G data network to get an extra feature like video call. Without the front camera, I rather get the Atrix 4G or Vibrant 4G.
This is near perfect phone if only it did have the front cam. Though by my usage I rarely use video calling. Was the front cam removed because there aren't any left space in the phone hardware because of the arc design? I am using Satio and am planning to upgrade to ARC this march. I'm all hand down to buying this
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2011i swear the first time arc was unveiled, i saw the front camera is checked at its official websiteSE decided to take away front facing camera from arc so others can take neo.

Anonymous, 01 Mar 2011No front camera. This phone will fail again just like the X10 if it goes to AT&T.Stop the useless comment about secondary camera. You are just being picky.
