David, 12 May 2012Which phone shoud I buy Arc S or HTC SENSATION.plz help me.Depends on your need. If you're looking for a good camera, then you should buy Arc S. Never doubt the camera quality for Sony :)
But in the other hand if you're looking for some good prosessor, then pick Sensation. But specification is just a matter of numbers and letters on paper, you should tes drive by yourself those two amazing gadgets.
I was having the same problem with you too 4 days ago. But then I went with Arc S, and it's really worth buying. The phone has a better RAM management then my old phone, Samsung Galaxy W, which has the same brain with Arc S. Except for the internal memory, my Galaxy W is bigger, it has has 1gb user available.
Bought mine yesterday from Allphones in Joondalup. $398 AUD. Could have got it cheaper from Kogan but shipping and inconvenience if there's problems. Virgin wanted over $500 outright!
Up to now pretty happy with it. Screens not as good as the Galaxy S that its replacing, and no forward facing camera but small price to pay just to be rid of the problem Samsung. Connected up to computer straight after a full charge and first thing it wanted to do was update to ICS! cool.
Contacts syncing doesn't seem as smooth and complete as samsung. unable to link and show facebook and viber. probably something i'm doing wrong tho. Upto now tho, on second day of ownership the verdict is.. NICE.
Chris555, 11 May 2012I bought this phone on Ebay 4 days ago and im loving it to bits. Sure, it's not the latest in ... morehey did u receive any problems wid ur purchase from ebay n was it delivered within time?? N did u recieve warranty for ur phone?? Actually im asking dis bcoz d price in ebay is very less as compared to other sites like flipkart n so im in doubt whether the phone is absolutely new n der r no defects in it!
Hello, just wanna share about this phone.
I got this beautiful phone last night, before this I used Samsung Galaxy W. At first I was a little hesitated whether I should change my W to Arc S. W and Arc S both have the same processor and RAM, though W has a bigger internal memory (1gb).Other than that, everything in the brains are the same on the paper.
I read many bad things about this Arc S, no front camera, has small internal memory, the body easily fracture, single core, and the other craps. But since I love the design and the camera, finally I sold my W and bought this Arc S home.
Turned out, Arc S is a worth buying. Sure it has the same brain as my W, but this one runs smoother, the display is amazing, the RAM management is good and has a bigger empty space than W (on W I used task killer just to free some memory, but on Arc S I don't need it), and the camera is superb!
About the small internal memory, yes it is a little disappointing. But Im not a person who likes to keep lots of unused apps, so it doesn't bother me so much. I play games, but I only install some of them that I play a lot. Before installing another ones, I make sure that Im already finished the old ones on my phone, so I don't need to waste lots memory on games that Im not playing it anymore.
Well, my conclusion is, phone's spec is just a matter of numbers and words on paper. You need to feel it by your own hands, then you'll know the good of the gadget.
*Sorry if there's any mistake in my english :)
really so cool mobile i m happy with this handset pic and sound so clear fast browseing net. but little problem with bat..
I bought this phone on Ebay 4 days ago and im loving it to bits. Sure, it's not the latest in mobile technology and runs the old android but unless you are a gadget freak you don't even notice these limitations. Before to order i went to telstra shop and compared it to other higher specd models from samsung and all, but Arc S in my eyes was a winner in every aspect. The screen is incredibly sharp and bright, its fast and smooth, browsing speed kills iPhone 4 by miles, and the arc shaped body makes it a head turner every time.
It's also incredibly comfortable to type in landscape mode due to the arched shape. Coming from iPhone 4 i consider the Arc S a massive upgrade for me and definitely not a downgrade. I want to stay with this phone forever hahaha.....
I wish Sony continued marketing this model because it's amazing. If you are thinking to buy it, stop thinking and buy it!
Will upgrading to new os increase the performance of the phone I.e will I able to watch full hd videos ?
Can somebody tell me does full hd 1080p videos run in this phone or not... If it runs which is the best player to download.. Also I wanted to know that since the front camera is not given can I connect an external webcam? Also is there any provision to connect mouse to this phone if yes then how?
Abhideep Jain, 11 May 2012hey friends, i think to buy xperia arc s but i am confuse to purchase arc s or xperia pro plzz... moreI'd say go for what will best fit your purpose/type of use. I initially had Arc S but I had it replaced by the store to Experia Pro because of battery heating problems. The phone would heat up 5-10mins in game play or browsing the internet. They say it's normal but I find it annoying so I had it replaced. Other than that the performance of the phone is great. I didn't have any problems with the Xperia pro, it's awesome. What i really liked about it was the qwerty keypad and the fact it's not heating up. Unfortunately, i dropped that unit in the toilet. and I'm out to get a new phone. The only thing really to consider is the keypad and no battery heating problems for Xperia pro. Other than that, their performance is more or less the same... oh and I find the Arc S look better than the pro... goodluck choosing!
