[deleted post]SE has already said that Arc is not gonna have the same fate as x10 & it seems true bcoz day by day the phone is nearing it's final unit & se has released many videos showing that the phone is almost complete.
But in case of x10 it always looked unfinished, so that was a reason for late release.
Arc is an amazing phone!!!
Check this article which shows how much advanced is Arc's multitouch as compared to devices present on the market -
Just check out a new video showing how amazing is Arc's camera -
SE Xperia Arc over motorola atrix -
A great 8mpx camera with Sony's award winning Exmor R sensor, led flash, autofocus, smile detection, face detection, image stabilization, video stabilization as compared to poor 5mpx camera of atrix without anything.
Great 4.2 inch LED backlit Reality display with Sony's great Mobile Bravia Engine as compared to poor old gen simple LCD display of atrix.
SE's great customization(timescape /mediapane) as compared to one of the worst motorola customization(motoblur).
Android 2.3 preloaded as compared to old 2.2 in atrix.
Almost double battery life(460hr) as compared to atrix's poor 250 hr standby time.
Extremely slim at 8.7 mm as compared to atrix.
Unique & the sexiest ever design in touchscreen phones as compared to ugly iphone copycat design of atrix.
Body made from premium materials as compared to poor quality body materials of atrix.
Arc will be very soon connected with Sony's Qriocity media on demand service as compared to nothing on atrix.
SE has always been great in sound quality but motorola sucks. Therefore much better sound quality in Arc as compared to atrix.
Motorola atrix has dual core processor but I don't care about it unless I get at least good battery life. Atrix has much better internal memory but it doesn't matter anymore in Arc bcoz we can save apps & games directly to memory card in android 2.3
1080p video playback is possible in atrix but it doesn't create any diff. until we have a screen with comparable resolution.
Atrix has 1GB RAM but it doesn't matter bcoz Arc is giving a ultimately smooth experience with 512 MB RAM(as reported by everyone who has previewed Arc)
The best cell phone to UK, Australia, Canada and Brazil: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cellphone_gun.jpg Any review about it?
[deleted post]up to date, ATRIX?
it doesn't even have android 2.3?
before when x10 had android 1.6, everyone was complaining 'bout how sony is soo outdated.
and now what?
Sony is one of the first to release the 2.3
who's outdated now?
amazingly slim, and Adreno205 GPU is great. But... so small internal memory for installing apps? I dont like to install apps to memory card, thats a big disadvantage, should have been at least 2GB internal. And i expect the price to be a disadvantage also.
5 Reasons why ARC is better than Atrix
2 Screen size
3 Camera Pics 8MP v 5MP
4 Camera Pic. Quality in the dark (Exmor)
5 Bravia Engine
7 Latest Android Version
8 Battery Standby time
9 Choice of colours
10 Image of brand and you!!
That's 10 without pushing myself to hard!!
