Excellent phone with excellent specs and design but no secondary camera.. But it's okay because I never used them on my previous phone. :)
shabaz, 03 Feb 2012can anyone plzz help how do I upgrade 2.3.4 to ICS 4.0 on my Arc S..ics upgrade is not yet available.you can try the ics alpha rom(test rom) or the ics alpha by doomlord (almost all arc s features functioning)
tani, 04 Feb 2012IS THERE IS ANY WAY TO IMPROVE THE BATTERY LIFE ?? except the battery life is a awesome smart ... moretry the custom roms.the SE.Tweaked or the Softwhite MIUI,maybe it will help you with your battery problem.
Had my SE Arc S a week ago. I tried to compare it with my old Samsung S8500. I find it more comfortable to do my simple things with my S8500. Also FM reception is poor, consumes battery fast, and the sound quality is way too far on negative direction compare with my Old S8500. Now, I think of it more of a playing device than serve it my original purpose. For now, Im going back to my S8500 (Good thing I did not dispose yet my old phone). I hope this get fixed on ICS upgrade.
Can any1 help me to root my xperia arc s in an easy way,i m tired of the adb and sdk things,is there any easier way to root the cell?
This phone is Amazing,yes it is good in all the specs that are present above,sound clearity is gr8(just miss a bass boost)
Camera is very good the only drawback is the poor resolution in low light condition due to the exmor r
this phone is blasingly fast,touch response is gr8 to,battery life is about one day and its not bad when comparing it to other android phones in the market,
and fnally the phone design is one of the best combining it with its price,Arc s is one of the bst phone in the market,i have one since 2 months and till now havent found any prob
tani, 04 Feb 2012IS THERE IS ANY WAY TO IMPROVE THE BATTERY LIFE ?? except the battery life is a awesome smart ... moreYes. Turn of your data traffic when not in use. Don't use live wallpaper. Specially turning of your data traffic will help much. It consumes a lot of battery. Mine can last a full day with one charge still 15-20% battery life remaining.
dose it has an Exmore r sensor or the camera specification is same as neo and arc.
Marco, 03 Feb 2012I want to buy it, but why is it so cheap compared to it's amazing specs???It is for poor people.
IS THERE IS ANY WAY TO IMPROVE THE BATTERY LIFE ?? except the battery life is a awesome smart phn...i hv buy but the pink one 1 week ago... but i hv to charge it to times in a day... :( so please help me out....
got this phone from singtel, last week. It's an amazing phone except no front camera but it's ok for me. Mobile Bravia engine created an amazing picture and watching youtube is just amazing. I used iphone 3GS, 4S and HTC HD7 before (all still with me). Migrating contacts from windows 7 phone to this unit is easier than i though. Surfing internet / download apps / download email / sync google service is fastest ever. HTC HD7 Vs iphon4s Vs Sony Xperia Arc S, my answer will be Sony is the best. This is my best phone ever.
Good job sony!
Just 1 thing to mention, during the phone call the backlight of display didn't turn-off, but it's fixed after i upgraded the firmware to 4.0.2.A.0.62
