It's nice to hear from SE confirming that all their Xperia lineup for 2011 will be receiving Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Hopefully roll-out will start early of first quarter next year.
melski, 13 Nov 2011i really like sony ericsson product since i first had it in way back 2003,i'd like the quality... moreI agree with you.
Quaity is awesome in SE, one of the best all round phones with no actual bad points. Camera is very good, screen is great, sound is awesome, good signals for wifi, gps, bluetooth and gsm/2G and good battery.
My K810i is still in great shape after 4 years of very heavy use (battery as new) and my bros T-610i still kicking ass after 7 years run.
So I can say the SE phones may not have the best specs.... but you will never get a crappy part on them.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2011Would like to know how does the phone battery manage with average use or more than average use... moreIt does pretty well. I had a N97 before the Arc and it did had a bit more battery life but then again it had a smaller screen and slower cpu so it is normal it had better battery life with the same capacity. By the way, it was rubbish in all regards.
I manage 2, sometimes 3 days with some very reasonable use. Of course my old K810i has better battery time but it is not a smart phone.
SE phones always gave me good times, maybe less on standby than Nokias but awesome in talk time so I wouldn't say SE phones have poor reputation on that issue. It is more a complaint from non-SE users than a real issue.
By the way, also compared with the iPhone 4... mine averages double battery life. ;)
slow no way guys ,just dont load too much apps ,useful apps only people remove shitty useless apps
weeeeeeee i jusr both my xperia arc for 1800qrd and its very aawesone i lkove it my first smartphone and my last phone maybe :)
Would like to know how does the phone battery manage with average use or more than average use such as if you were to watch a video clip on it especially given SE reputation for poor battery life?
I have had my arc since release and its still as quick as the day i got it. Im a previous iphone owner and wanted a change, the arc was my choice and ive not regret it.
Specifications are substantial, its easy to use and there have been regular software updates provided by Sony Ericsson.
Above all its a fantastic looking phone, and in my opinion looks and feels far better than other phones in its class.
I have been using this phone for just over 6 months now, and I have to say that I love it, its awesome!
Unlike the majority of my friends and family that have smartphones, my battery easily gets me from morning to night with a moderate-high use.
The Android Gingerbread 2.3.4 currently being used is as good as other handsets, but its not the generic software that sets this phone apart....
The 8.1 MP ExmorR camera is the best I have ever had on a phone (Despite the fact I had a Nokia N8 with a 12mp camera and Xenon flash previously). It excells at taking a poorly lit photo subject and making the best photo I have ever seen on a mobile device!
My most commonly used feature is the 'Facebook Inside Xperia', which links my contacts with their facebook profile to use their fb profile picture as a contact picture and their status updates show in my phonebook. The other feature of Facebook Inside Xperia that I love is the ability to 'like' music on my fb via a little thumbs up icon while I am listening to a track.
Overall, this is THE best phone I have ever owned, and the only reason I can see that I will be getting rid of it is to replace it with the next Sony Ericsson Xperia!
This is one of the best smartphones i've ever used! Super fast with the 1.2ghz processor! It's camera really won me over! Being an 8.1 megapixel camera it really is good quality - also has the exmor R. The screen quality is good and can be seen at most angles even in intense sunlight! When sony ericsson released this they really did up their game.
waiting for d next and laast gingerbread update for xperia arc 2.3.5 ......multi sweep angle and playstation certification wow .....ice cream sandwhich is going to be awesome
i really like sony ericsson product since i first had it in way back 2003,i'd like the quality and designed as of now my old T-610 model still kicking batt.not yet been replaced compared to other brand quality call and i still using it for my roaming.But now i have this new XPERIA ARC it's simply amazing i call it "The Beast".my friends and relatives is also switching the brand because they knew the quality of sony ericsson that i had, keep up the good work guys!!!
