soulkeeper, 03 Dec 2011is it true that the arc has a color pealing problem? what color has this problem, i would prob... moreUmm....what can i say! Yeah, it's true, kind of.afaik, some of the arc owners have faced this problem, when others don't.& it's not color specific, the problem is with the silver coating in the buttons & the sideline.but a very few of the users have the issue, so may be, just may be, it's not a big deal.
& regarding ur battery issue question, all i can say that i'm a heavy user, & with one full charge in the night, i can easily go through the whole day with 4/5 hours of net browsing, downloading, chatting, youtube, a couple of calls, watching video & a little bit of listening music.i don't text, though.but yes, I've to charge in the night.So, with a normal use, u should make at least 1.5/2 days.
Hi I am having problem with it when it got restart on its own I dont know why it restart plz suggest smthing for it

Sunny, 02 Dec 2011Hello all,
I just purchased SE arc. Its a beautiful set but with very less battery backup. ... moreFirst of all, don't be upset for draining the battery so quickly.se has done something strange with xperia arc, that's why the battery comes in stable point after using the set for 7/8 days.i can say that from my personal experience, & I've seen plenty of users facing the same issue.
Btw, u can take some steps to save ur juices, like as, always turn off bluetooth & wifi.turn them on only when u need to use them, after using, again turn it off.select ur data mode gsm only, when u r not using 3g.keep ur screen brightness under 50%.try to avoid widgets & live wallpapers.if u r not in a need to keep yourself updated every moment, or using a limited data plan, keep the background data traffic off.there r plenty of softwares in the market like task killer, advanced task killer, juice defender etc.with all due respect to these softwares & its users, i don't think that they r really that useful.there r some system files in android & timescape ui, those r meant to be run in the background all the time.so when u install a program like juice defender, it force closes that programs.after a short while, that programs again begin to run & juice defender again kills them.this process run all the time,& i don't think it's very healthy.better install an antivirus, it will close all the programs that r not meant to be run in the background, & leave the others.anyway, it's my personal opinion, & the choice is yours.
& one more thing, mark my words, NEVER EVER EMPTY YOUR BATTERY.this is very harmful for a Litheum based battery, this kind of manner reduces total life cycle of ur battery.
Hope this helps u.......

Sunny, 02 Dec 2011Hello all, I just purchased SE arc. Its a beautiful set but with very less battery backup. ... moreTry to check the running application in the background of your phone. Setting>Applications> Background/Running Applications. Then it will show you all the running application you didn't know running. To close it all, look for Task Manager and end it. Hope it helps.
