My gf and I bought our first smartphones last december. We decided to get two different phones, and our choices were (considering our tight budget and preferences) the Galaxy W and this stupid xperia fart S. It didn't take long before I noticed it's problem. it heats up so fast, it goes above 40 degrees celsius while only doing some internet stuff tru wifi. If I keep it going on, the phone would lag like hell, making it impossible to use unless I reboot the phone. I sent it back to the sony service center 6 days after i bought it. I requested for a replacement but they said that they can't, cuz there wasn't any factory defects and all that was needed to do is to just upgrade some firmware stuff. When they sent my phone back after 2 weeks, i was damned to see that they opened up my phone to fix it, tampering the NTC sticker! Do they really have to open up the phone to update it's firmware?! Here in the philippines, prices of 2nd hand phones would drastically go down if the NTC sticker gets tampered with. Now I wouldn't be able to sell it for a fair price if i want to replace this crap. So freakin' pissed off with sony and this bullcrap phone! Should've chosen the galaxy W instead. Oh and for the record, it still heats up freakishly fast but, so far, doesn't lag anymore.
I'm planning to buy this phone, but there is one thing that bothers me... Is screen really so bad? I read a few opinions and people say that screen is poor quality and viewing angles are vary bad.
wanna buy one of dis set. loooking tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo gooooooooooood to meeeeee.
very nice phone , very nice design, great camera , the speed is very good (never hanged up till now !!!), the wirless reception is very good (better than samsung galaxy s2), the white colour that i have is amazing, the battery life is little bit short but its becoming better ( i dont know why), dont have seconed camera ( i never used it anyway), total opinion : the best phone that i ever had.

i am using this phn since one month bt y this has become so slow im nt understandin!! any help?
After using the Arc S for about a month, I think that the device is perfect in general.
Disadvantage of one thing, if access any link on WhatsApp , for example, and try to open it the page suddenly closed and takes you back to the same page! , and to view the link you have to copy and paste into the browser. ( not all links !! )
My screen got scratched form nowhere i couldn't figure it out how did that happen. Otherwise best phone in town :)
Does skype work on this? Its a great phone. Im Gna get it in my hands in a few days :)
Hi all, is there any other background on this phone other than the blue colour? If I put a wallpaper on it will it change the blue background as well? Thankyou
The phone is really good....only disadv is that it doesnt have a secondary cam which is bad, but overall I guess the phone is pretty good and worth the price
I am 100% sure that there is a secondary camera in this phone.so u have provided a wrong information in the camera option.
I need an oppinion from an owner of an arc/arc s. Could one set ISO? I read one can set more camera options for S2 but here they're limited. So what CAN'T one change?
