Hi there am torn between the arc and s series of xperia, can anyone provide me with valuable info regarding the functionability, battery life, compatibility with other programmes and more sepcifically with the fact that this is time am about to own a smart phone
if ur a videophile like me, DO NOT buy this phone.
personally, the video quality is excellent and plays 720HD with no lag at all. the images r sharp and the speaker quality is loud, despite what anyone says.
the colors, while not as vibrant and rich as amoled, r probably more true to life, which is why i like this phone.
UNFORTUNASTELY, THIS PHONE CANNOT PLAY FILES LARGER THAN 2 GBS, which excludes about 80-90% of movies i convert to 720HD MP4 quality.
i tried it on 2 movies, falling down and total recall, which ended up being bigger than 2 gbs.
2 other movies, final destination 5 and the darkest hour, were both under 2 gbs and they played well.
if u dont mind limiting ur movie choices than i highly recommend this phone.
but if u dont like to be limited in what movies to watch, than dont bother buying it.
if u do insist though, feel free to buy mine as i will be posting it on ebay soon, too bad.
FYI-i tried converting Falling Down (with michael douglas) twice just in case the first version was bad.
both times it failed to play on the phone.
Does Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc support Skype? It is really important for me. I am planning to buy one but I need Skype on my upcoming phone..please help.

Open Settings>Wireless and Networks>Tethering and Portable Hotspot. Enable USB Tethering. In some PCs you might need to install PC Companion to get this feature to work.
Nandar, 12 May 2012should i buy Arc OR Arc S or Neo V ? arc can upgrade ICS? When?I don't recommend any of those you have mentioned. Just go for Sony Xperia S and you won't regret buying SXS and really worth every penny you spent.
will sony give a latest update to this xperia device to increase it`s performance by increasing the 1GHZ speed to 1.4 GHZ speed processor? Nokia increasing their customer satisfaction by increasing the processor speed of the phones.
Thanx Sony team. It`s a great phone

amaze, 02 May 2012thanks Shen..but disabling my data traffic will mean i cant get any messages from whatsApp and... moreI get your problem. I use Whatsapp a lot too.
I use the app "Juice defender"
It manages your data connection to optimize battery life i.e. it turns it on when your phone is unlocked and turns it off once the screen is off.
It then switches it on periodically(if the display is off) and so you'll have no problem getting whatsapp messages.
Alex123, 07 May 2012hey someone help im trying to decide between the xperia arc and the xperia arc s, which 1 ?Why don't you wait a couple o month when the rest of their 2012 Xperia line come out.
Also the Arc's price will inevitably drop once that happens so its a win-win. :)
Alex123, 07 May 2012hey someone help im trying to decide between the xperia arc and the xperia arc s, which 1 ?I have Xperia arc.. I advise arc s cuz its faster.. Otherwise everything else is the same..
my best friend uses Xperia arc and am using Xperia pro. his phone's brightness was always 60 to 70%, and data traffic is always on and he use 30 to 45 mins web browsing and 3 to 3 to 3:30 hours voice calls, and he get avarage cell life. after that he switched off the data traffic when not needed, noe he is satisfied. And the media is unbeatable, cam is no. 1....I love his phone, and mine too.
