i have been using the phone for 3 weeks , over all - bttery doenst hold that much if you make phone calls , which happens its a phone , not a tablet !, poor andoid interface ,not the one on the pure androids , and the speaker that is installed on the back of the phone sounds not very good, i'd say rediculous!!! for this fine designed device that Sony ericsson presented , handeles phone calls , sms, mms and all data very well ,and also NO ANIMATIONS in the SMS format that come with the keyboard, how stupid is that , I might have to return that fine phone that i tried to like so much , and pay hefty re-stocking fee ,.. i little sad after all ,but ...
Price going down face here in Bangkok for Arc S, now only 300 euros. I guess its successor is coming soon, so i will delay my buying...even of i like it so much, looks and camera really great.
guys guys guys. . . it has yeah out has a full facing front, for video casks l casks l calls. . yeah but only four video calls. . .
kculas, 06 Jan 2012Where i can download that application?download it from MARKET.
overall arc s is very good phone. but 2 things i really dont like.. first is battery, it is very very low, within few minutes it goes down and another thing is headphones, which is useless, not a powerful set like mp4 player
It's almost perfect, but no front camera? even the Mini Pro have one. It's kinda a necessity for a smartphone.
But still, the design looks great. Does this have Exmor on it? Doesn't say on the spec sheet.

But that d... moreI had a terrible day 2 days ago, then I came to read analogy between the wife (Samnsung GSII) and the girlfriend (Xperia Arc S) was so clever and so true... It made my day!!! Thanks man.

Enjoy!
my phone has disabled for all internationall calls and I need the default password to enable it?
Hey S.E! your design is really great and performance is awesome!! please get into the camera world! it's the missing link for S.E monster! phones. get the large sensor, a 10mp cam and a front cam and you'll kick them all. more powers to you guys and hope to see your point&shoot rocker this year. thanks for the live w/ walkman, it's cute and fast!!

i hate how this phone doesn't have a front facing camera, making the video calling impossible, plus it doesn't even have an ambient light sensor therefore doesn't adjust screen brightness automatically. Whats worse is that this is sony ericsson's flagship model. I think theres some serious works still needs to be done at sony ericsson in order to achieve adequate amount of market shares
Michelle, 03 Jan 2012I own arc, and like to point out some things clear. It's definately not a good camera phone. ... moreI suppose that's why they produced the Arc S, 'cause they've improved any problems in the previous version (SE Arc). I have the Arc S and I find it simply marvellous.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2012im enjoying the phone, i downloaded a lot a applications especially HD games like Brother in A... moreI think they'll go directly to Android 4 ICS some time next year, but hey, the latest update by SE already has some Android 4 features and other new adds, so just give yourself some time to enjoy it ;)
