I have been using a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for a little over a year, but recently my friend gave me back my Xperia Arc S... i have started using it again as i have missed it! I think the over-all design is beautiful and the camera is just as good as what the Note 2 has, and it almost has the same ppi as the Note 2 so the screen is crisp & sharp too.
As mentioned by others though i have to agree that the internal memory is just not practical or realistic for use now days, apps are getting bigger and i have i stalled a few minor updates but it has already come up with the "Low On Space" warning... such a shame, this is the main thing which ruined it for me!
Mine also tends to get very hot and has always had the over-heating problem right from when it was new... has anyone else experienced this?

Nhyra, 18 Aug 2014Why is it that when I snap a picture and I want to view, the picture comes as crashed or blurr... moreInternal memory is only 320MB. And unfortunately, most of the pre-loaded apps cannot be moved to the 8GD card. So even on my phone, I find the card virtually empty, but the phone memory full. So all I can afford is Skype and Whatsapp. No Facebook etc since there is no memory. There are complicated technical solutions for this involving something called rooting, but I haven't tried them yet - but they will free up the phone memory for you. Look up 'rooting experia arc s' on google and see if you want to try that....otherwise, we just have to limit the usage of the number of apps :(
Nhyra, 18 Aug 2014Why is it that when I snap a picture and I want to view, the picture comes as crashed or blurr... moreXperia Arc S has only 512 MB RAM that's why, even if you have 16gb SD memory the problem is your internal have no enough space,
Why is it that when I snap a picture and I want to view, the picture comes as crashed or blurred.
Also I have an 8 GB memory inside it but yet if I want to download an application, it tells me I don't have enough memory.
