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 /mediascape) as compared to one of the worst motorola customization(motoblur).
Android 2.3 preloaded + 2.4 already being tested 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 case 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)
Arc lover, 10 Jan 2011Guys, its true that atrix has got many times better hardware, but as far as style and interfac... moretegra 2 cant keep up with competition
tegra 2 is 1.5 x faster than snapdragon 8255 but it is hungry of battery power
the next generation dual core snapdragon that will be released in q2 is 3x faster and 5x more energy efficient than tegra2
SAMSUNG and SE and HTC know this and refuse to use tegra 2 in their phones but LG and MOTO not!
As much as i like the Arc, the Atrix seems the better phone power wise, with dual core, 1GB ram and has 1930 mah battery (never trust standby times of companies, either overexaggerated or under). Even SE fans have to acknowledge that at least. Multimedia wise the arc may be better thanks to Bravia engine and 8MP camera, but thats about it so far.
Guys, its true that atrix has got many times better hardware, but as far as style and interface is concerned, xperia is best....!

look at the hits, 70% with 334891 hits. So many discussion/interest about this. And wow look at the votes. SE Arc, you got my money. To me your CPU and no secondary camera is no big deal. I'm not looking to turn you into a PC, thus dual core is just a waste of money and battery. Looking forward to meet your cousin in February. Your sexy body plus the latest os is a plus..
i am 100% agrre with you
SE phones are unique like apple
but if you look at samsung-lg-moto-nokia -etc phones they are like each other
No doubt there are a lot to look forward to this year's gadgets. Of all the smartphone gadgets i've seen at CES, one of the most stylish smarphones is the ARC. I gotta hand it to Sony, they've redesign the phone albeit not so much on the specs. Comparing to the other powerhouse smartphones, they tend to look bulkier and almost the same as each other.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2011SE wants to redeem it's name with this shiny new phone. however, people that has the original ... morethis time SE starts with 2.3 while other manufactures are announcing phones with android 2.2
so this time SE is one step ahead and even is testing android 2.4 on arc
Sony and google are 2 most reliable companies in the world and both have good relationship with each other so expect more from SE android phones in future!
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2011the Arc might be a good phone on its own, and if SE have learned from its mistakes, then why a... morethe x10 is a complicatet matter. It was the SE's first android experience, in times when android was just starting to shape up and had a minor share on the market. Not many have expected such high pace of development for android and such fast releasing of new versions.
SE paid the price for the lack of experience and timescape/mediascape UI which was hard and demanding for upgrade.
Finally, they probably decided that x10 is a thing of less priority after a more than a year after the release. The software upgrades will still roll out, but putting new android on it is too complicated and would also, if implemented, jeopardise the sales of upcoming midrange SE android phones.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2011Here, for all fools who are barking about the bad SE update experiences..
"Mr Skogber... morethe Arc might be a good phone on its own, and if SE have learned from its mistakes, then why are the X10 owners being left out early? only barely a year on the handsets, and no support already? come on, the x10 series have SUPERIOR hardware by the time they were released, and packaged with a promise that it can be updated with (it comes with 1.6 when other phones are releasing 2.2) recent and future version of android. but SE dropped the ball on us.
SE like Motorola used to be on top. but both falter and nokia became number one. now, motorola is slowly coming back and SE with this phone seems to follow suit. and sad to say nokia is the one falling now.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2011i think u are wrong . XPERIA ARC have better camera than N8 . is not only MEGAPIXELS who make ... moreWhat u think LED flash in this phone can take beter photos then Xenon flash of nokia n8 in dark.
This phone is the king and the whole company and I think that Sony Ericsson has overtaken Nokia and Apple in every aspect!
