Don't buy this product!
I have bought it and regret it so much.
It has problem at the usb port whenever you connect the usb to a charger or a pc the touch screen will become annoying.
Each time you tap the screen it will tap everywhere in random rapidly!
I have communicate with the support team and follow their direction to update the system but still the problem not solve and they recommend me to go to the nearest supplier which is I know i just a parody.
So, I plan to sell this phone and change to HTC then tell my friends about my experience
don't buy this product!
i have bought and regret it.
it has glitch on the usb port.
whenever you connect to charger or pc the touch screen become useless because tapping anywhere each you touch the screen. its a fatal error
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2011hi my wife have that phone and she love it but today camera just gave up all it says is ; came... morego to the settings and make there factory resert!)It can works ar made an update with SEUS!)
you'd better go with SGSII. it's now less than $550, but still one of the best smartphone in the market.
I need your suggestions regarding online purchase of this phone from snapdeal.Is it safe to buy from online and whether device comes under service warranty.
Thanks in advance
Suggest all who buy the phone get the firmware updated from the PC... I am using it for about 1 year now and it is the best phone I have used to date.
I just buy Sony Arc ... within 7days the system is totally shut down & i CANNOT OPEN ANYMORE ... & even few days I using that one sometimes Gallery is not working.. what happen? When I trying to return they dint not exchange !!!! Manager whats to give in Service Centre first (Its mention in receipt within 7 days you can exchange/refund!!!!!) I really excited to use it but now I disappointed.
hi frnds,pranav here,,,from where did u get arc for lowest price any online choice
hi my wife have that phone and she love it but today camera just gave up all it says is ; camera unavailable.phone is only 6 weeks old.
dihan, 18 Nov 2011does xperia arc support nfc....plzz help everyone..umm.....technically,for folks like us,who r using xperia arc,nope....arc dosn't support nfc,arc dosn't have the hardware.but the japanese version of arc,xperia acro,has the nfc functionality.
Btw,why r u so interested about nfc?nfc is still in testing mode in most country,not massively used,proper use of nfc should take at least 1 year.i don't even bother!anyway,if u want a xperia with nfc,u have to wait for sometime,future xperia line will come with nfc,se already declared to use nxp for nfc functionality.
Till date i have used more than 15 smartphones of different brands but found arc as the best.Awesome performance awesome look superb love you ericsson....
have been using the arc since may 2011 and have found it truly different to other smartphones on the market.
the camera is amazing! exmor r technology really does make a difference! i was at rihannas concert at the o2 on monday; had really good standing seats but still quite dark for my fellow standers to capture great pictures in low light conditions; i instantly showed them as they were interested; nothing but WOW was the reaction! i also caught her in high-def video! the let down was that its only 720p!
the screen is ssoo crisp; i was watching iplayer on it and every aspect of top gear was ssoo clear! the bravia engine does make a difference! the widget for screen brightness should have more than 2 settings!
then i connected it to my tv via the hdmi output and there is such a super connection; no issues with the picture or sound! plus i could control my phone to flick through the gallery with my tv remote!
i used the connected devices option too! i can wirelessly connect to my internet tv or media server ,like a playstation 3, and i could access all my phone content with no wires! another super feature.
usual android response; easy to use, lots of great apps that are cheap and cheerful and flash suppport for internet browsing! the new update from sony has provided screenshot capability, mcafee trial and wisepilot! so im safe to try the security, and its very good; scanning, backing up and phone tracking and emergency texting all built in! wisepilot is def better than standard google navigation!
iv used my phone as a modem as well! very simple to do, and you have internet on the go for a laptop or tablet! the phone has a data counter so im in control of how much i use; its real time as well, so no need to check with your provider; set alarms for your allowance so you know when you are close or have finished.
battery life from my experience over the months has been excellent! i managed to get 10hours straight talktime from a fully charged battery on several occasions, with some battery left over still! some smartphones cant even manage 7hrs.
the design is slick and thin; handset is very light.
what i would like to see is something with optical zoom on the camera, front facing camera, 1080p hd recording, massive built in memory say 16gb/32gb, more battery power, faster processor and dual core hardware, better loudspeaker.
i dont mind the handset being a little thicker and heavier for all the above!
in terms of what i think software can do: dr dre deats headphone support, auto cache cleaner setting, when screen is locked auto data disconnection feature and connects 5 times in an hour when on standby!
i love the little things like when the screen is locked it looks as if an old tv was switched off; how cool is that!.
overall its one of the best handsets this year (check its awards, theres ssoo many!), it is very well priced, so i can def say its a bargain everywhere! go get one of these or the updated version Arc S!
