Anonymous, 25 Apr 2012just wanted to ask. i am deciding between arc s or waiting for sola to come out.
function ... moreSpec wise although a single core, the arc s is bloody fast and the people that advise you to wait for the duel/quad cores should take into account what you want to use the phone for.
It handle some of the proccessor intensive games without issue and the phone in general, as I said, works super fast already. Browsing the web is a pleasure and also fast.
I bought mine for around £189 sim free unlocked.
As for the phone being phased out, every handset becomes obsolete within about 12 months with a newer model.
I would say get it if you can find it cheap enough because it's a great handset.
Proud owners on Xperia Arc S who updated to ICS 4.0 ---
Does Smart Dialing enabled or starts working after this update?
Also what all features are improved or included?
How is the nee experience?
just wanted to ask. i am deciding between arc s or waiting for sola to come out.
function wise, most probably i am going to use it for browsing and videos. battery is also a factor. so technically both are ok (i think). it also has to last me a long long time (like more than 3 years)
the problem is my friends are saying that dual core is better and arc s might probably be faced out in less than 2 years.
apps wise, maybe in a year or two (or 3), android apps wont run on single core anymore?
anyways, i am not in a hurry, but budget wise, i am looking for a mid-range phone that fits my budget.

Does anyone have a problem regarding the wifi signal strength of the arc s?
Will never buy sony again... xperia arc s sucks if u put abbit load on it, it gets over heated and also auto reboot simultaneously in pocket (most users dont know abt this), it auto reboots most of the time when keypad is locked, thus drains battery as well. buying such an expensive phone with shitty problems didn't suited me, so i sold it, hate sony now.

Wasim, 23 Apr 2012Hi would anyone plz help me....? Last day i got a notification of system update 4.0.2.A.0.62, ... moreThat is not the ICS 4.0, but it could only be a firmware update. ICS is not yet available in Pakistan. Wait for another 2-3 weeks perhaps but keep checking through PC Companion.
