Ivan , 25 Jun 2012Hello.My Xperia Arc S has a problem with the screen... It doesen't stop blinking everything is... moreSome applications like "Droid call blocker" can do this to your phone. Lights keep on and off automatically for no reason, an intermittent problem. What you need to do, is to uninstall app one by one, and figure out which app is the culprit.
mike, 15 Jul 2012NOTE : To get rid of ics lag, use sus (sony update service) and repair the phone. Turns lag freeNo need to use SUS if you perform a master reset after updating.
jk2096, 14 Jul 2012if you have any problem icream sandwich software.. Downgrade SONY Xperia Arc S to Official Gin... moreAll you need is to perform a master reset after upgrading to ICS, otherwise you'll get lag issues.
Soyam, 15 Jul 2012Is it true that this phone becomes even more slow after ics update ? that is right
when i close the camera application in the mobile i can hear a click sound and i can feel it in the mobile please everyone tell me if you have the same story and i asked some people they told me that the camera lens is returning back to its place is that true or i have a problem in my camera please tell me as soon as possible
Danyal, 12 Jul 2012I see the following update 4.1.b.0.431 is this the 4.0.4 can you confirm? You are not having ... morethat's the official update. as long as you are using the sony software management from the website.
Senal Evans, 15 Jul 2012Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is Realy SmartPhone.But.... What Don't Have Secondary Camera...What... morestill a smartphone. users these days barely use a front camera for video conferencing as a main use due to high data use. women use it as an option to do their make up.
This is a wonderful phone. I have one and it does what it says. Just wish it had more internal memory.
Gotten my Arc S just recently and upgraded right away to 4.0.4 and true that the performance has much improved. Sony has truely lived up to their word. My only concern is the workaround on how to play songs using music apps like 4shared or calling using a headset automatically working like plug and play without setting up Liveware. Any workarounds you guys might find out will be gladly appreciated. I'm going to work on this as well and will keep you guys posted as soon as I get it.
I updated my Arc S to ICS (4.0.3) but it had a lot of problems (WiFi didn't work properly, it was laggy and a resource hog, RAM was heavily used and some times the device itself became unresponsive). The latest update upgraded ICS to 4.0.4 and many problems are gone for good but some others remain (like the RAM usage and the Contacts issue (it never dies and stays idle in the background no mather what you do...). So I decided to flash my device back to Android 2.3.4 but I hope we'll see Jellybean for Arc S even in an unofficial version soon. I can only dream about the benefits of project butter in my Arc S.
i have already 3 time used (sony update service) but same problem.my phone lag.restart 7 time a day.application closed automatically..but when i was Downgrade to gingerbread my mobile worked great...
