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...
NOTE : To get rid of ics lag, use sus (sony update service) and repair the phone.
Turns lag free
