Its a cool set but there is one limitation. You cannot send sms to more then 50 contacts at a time. Can anyone suggest the way to creat group contacts in contacts category? Can I send sms to group of 200 members?

I have updated my arc s from gingerbread to ICS 4.0.4 2 days ago .... and it is running like HELL...
very glitchy and slow .... while accessing to the gallery , phone and contacts it takes more time than usual
even the games also running slow...
i think ICS has downgraded the phone visual effects too..
The gingerbread was far better than ICS 4.0.4

I have read a lot abt many smartphones incl high end Xperias and I found out that this phone Arc S has the fewest issues compared to others. Great phone indeed. I love this phone ;-)

If you have battery issues with the Xperia Arc S, then you don't understand how to tweak Android, or are a heavy user. I have owned LG & HTC smartphones, both with 1500mah batteries and battery life was 2-3 days with normal use. If you play games online all day, then you most likely will only get 1 day from battery.
1. Update phone to ICS, to get improved battery life.
2. Lower screen brightness indoors to around 25%.
3. Disable screen savers, live wallpaper & use a black background instead.
4. Disable bluetooth, gps, mobile data, sync, wifi, google search & set standby (sleep) to 1 min. or less.
5. Don't trust the tiny battery icon, with about 1 bar left, it still has 30% battery remaining. Use a battery notifier to give accurate %.
My results were 3.5 days use, with battery still showing 10% remaining. 10 phone calls, 4 sms, 30 minutes gps in car, 60 mins. installing and removing software and 30 minutes playing hd video.
Just go to settings and check battery to see what is using the most battery drain.
Can anyone tell me if newest upgrade is as fast as 2.3.4?? Im thinking to upgrade, but i have seen some ICS arc S phones, and they feel like they are lagging compared to 2.3.4.
My Arc S gets heated up quickly, even with a casual facebook browsing. When I play games like "World of Goo" or "where's my water", the battery temperature rises upto 45 Deg Celsius. Is it something normal? or Is there any problem?

Coruscate, 10 Aug 2012Using Quick System Info Pro I found out that my phone Memory is only 340 MB shouldn't it be 51... moreIt has 512MB of RAM but a big chunk of it is taken up by the OS which is always running , the amount of available RAM at any given time hovers around 335-340 , as for the CPU , all mobile CPUs are from ARM , either v6 or v7 which is the newer of the two. The MSM8255T is the chipset ( which has an ARMv7 based CPU called Sanpdraon S2 and an Adreno 205 GPU ) not the CPU
