sony xperia arc, is amazing phone,from technical side,but the problem represented in the pattery it dos't stay for along time.
I have been using Nokia E7 and other N-series ones but now I want to try the Xperia Arc. Its my first day and I am liking it. Anybody who can tell me how I can make maximum use of it?
Dazyn, 07 Dec 2011The phone's been great, but I've recently handed in my phone because of a Wi-Fi dropping issue... moremine is happen same after handset OS upgrade to 2.3.4, wifi connect but few second lost, but this is nothing to do with your Arc, after my router ( linksys )software update from internet, now very smooth , no wifi problem at all, please try up date your router from it manufacturer web
Can you please tell me how to update my ARC to 2.3.4 ??? (What I have to do)? This is my first android phone... please advise...THANKS...
The phone's been great, but I've recently handed in my phone because of a Wi-Fi dropping issue where the phone just goes through scanning, connected then disconnected over about 10 seconds. Means I can't connect at all, really. Anybody else having this issue? It stopped after I went to 2.3.4. but came back a week later. Pretty annoyed, the only thing that spoils a GREAT phone.

It is a little flexible, absorbing the shocks when the phone falls down. Mine has fallen maybe 5 or 6 times both screen facing down and back facing down. Didn't get scratched nor did it break.

Adding to my reply, forgot to mention touch response. No issues, top notch touch sensitivity and the word prediction and gesture input is the most effective compared to other brands.

I am really sorry that I am not able to give you a detailed reply but I can make my point here. Whatever you see in the phone specifications is really there in the phone and everything works perfect. No issues till now for my phone. I have this phone since 8 months. Display is what I like the most, true colors and brightest display. BRAVIA makes even low resolution pics and videos look great on this big screen. With the updates that we receive periodically, the phone keeps getting better and better. It is fast, it is smooth. Great music quality. The two microphones makes noise cancellation most effective and the other person listening to you can hear you very clearly even when you are in a noisy environment. The ear piece is also very loud and clear. If I start saying like this I can go on and on, so to be precise, everything works perfect. Also, all the high end games are compatible with the hardware of Arc. And the demerits, battery life is the first demerit. With hardcore use like movies, browsing and gaming, it may last 5 or 6 hours. With messaging and calling maybe 8 or 10 hours. Listening to music or keeping the phone idle is almost the same, will last a day or more. And another demerit is the color peeling. My phone is silver and the color is peeling on the bottom edge of the back cover but it is not noticeable, only if I show it, you will notice. My friend has a midnight blue Arc, no color peeling issues for that. That phone is around 6 months old. But no issues with the functionality of the phone.
To be honest, I do not find any other demerits with this phone. The low battery and color peeling I have learnt to live with. But owing to the quality of all the other features of this phone, I consider the low battery life is negligible. You name any brand, I can give you examples of people around me who have faced atleast one intolerable issue with smartphones of all other brands. 3 of us including me have Xperia smartphones in office and no issues, absolutely no issues.
its a nice fone wit xcellent features its simply superb....
xcellnt for gaming
Its perfect; relating to the battery power, led display, screen size n resolution, sound, bravia engine and mainly the fantastic camera, n the price;than any other smartphone. its unbelievable- make.believe - sony.
