3.5 mm audio jack
phone ear speaker
8 mp camera
finally usb port
i guess due to space limitation there was no place left for front facing camera
i find this to be fair trade...
You know how this phone fails? No Seconday video call camera! All the competing cell phone manufacturers are producing phones with secondary cameras because that's future technology. Why didn't Sony decide to put one in
? I have no idea.
[deleted post]i agree...
x10 was not up to the mark
se did few mistakes and as a result in arc they have removed it... and promised timely updates
Many x10 users are even happy with their phone and those who are not should have checked the phone 1 b4 buying

Dear Haters, get a grip.
If you do not like this phone, go somewhere else.
Dont start to bash this phone like you own one.
This one doesn't have secondary camera???
Thank You Very Much Sony Ericsson!
You make.me.believe the front camera is a useless thing. 2 thumbs up.
distributor, 26 Jan 2011Im happy cause ARC dont have secondary camera , cause i never use it so i don want it . Cmera ... moreHello Distributor, I can see that you are a SE fan.
So, you would know that SE said lifetime support to the X10, but has stopped support after 10 months. For this reason people will not trust SE.
SE phones have really stunning looks, as that seems to be the SE marketing plan. And SE will sell well. No other company has chosen that design/looks path.
But SE lacks the latest 2011 technology, and thats what many people want.
You can't compare SE to Nokia about quality. Nokia is light years ahead in quality and service/backup. N8 is Aluminum with the highest shock rating of any new phone.
Im happy cause ARC dont have secondary camera , cause i never use it so i don want it . Cmera is super 8MP with Exmor R . ARC have 854 x 480 multitouch Reality display with mineral glass + bravia engine . BAD SE SUPPORT ??? well this phone will get officially ANDROID 3.0 i guess is very good support from SE . Bad battery life ??? did you use it to test ?????
Come on Anonymous this is SE not cheap Nokia .
Kelbo, 25 Jan 2011As a sony ericsson user, I've had a few SE phones, and at this moment I have an xperia X10... ... moreDo you even know why se can't get their updates on time? The answer is the timescape and the mediascape. And what they did to arc so that x10 troubles will not happen again? Timescape into widget and removing mediascape. Arc is running 2.3 gingerbread, and se is starting in my good book. Dual core? Se is waiting for the 3rd gen chip so they can use it same as htc.
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2011I just hope that the ARC won't start and end on Gingerbread. As a sony ericsson user, I've had a few SE phones, and at this moment I have an xperia X10... they are the slowest phone and with the worst battery life.
This (xperia x10) has recently moved to android 2.1 when there is 2.3 version in the market.
In other words, it is a recent android version now, but when will it come out? like somebody said here, maybe at the end of gingerbread lifecycle, and with no plans to upgrade to their consumers. Once you fall with them, they totally don't care about you anymore.
Their xperia x10 comes, at this time, with android 1.6 user upgradeable to 2.1. I've tried some other phones, and SE does not stand a chance.
Battery life..... the lowest I've ever seen in a mobile phone. even after a month of charging/discharging.
They tell you to turn off mobile data, connection, and everything but phone, but what sense does it make to have a smartphone with the "smart" turned off?
Screen has a very beautiful contrast, but then again, you need to reduce it to minimum if you want your battery to last a day, so you have something you cannot use.
Today, every manufacturer is announcing a dual core mobile, and this is behind what I've seen
If what you want is a phone that can be upgraded when new version of android releases (this is important, since new apps and functionality improve experience), a decent performance (their phones are very laggy), a battery life I would not recommend this phone,
Do not bother writting SE for support or questions... they just do not answer. Google it if you don't believe me.
sachin kundu, 25 Jan 2011guyz i m totally confused plz help me which one is better desire hd or i have to wait for sony... more I understand you . Both of them are good phones DHD and ARC . But i think is better if you buy ARC .
