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 ;)
im enjoying the phone, i downloaded a lot a applications especially HD games like Brother in Arms II. When will the Upgrade for Android 2.3.5 and Android 2.3.7 come out for Xperia Arc S?

I bought it two days ago because i hadnt that much money to buy Galaxy S II.....n I was a little upset when I bought it, but i m quiet satisfied after using it and much more satisfied after reading ur comment :)
I dont have my Arc S for long (few days) and already I am loving it! You need to be willing to explore and be patient with the phone, as it may take a while for you to figure some of the stuff out.

The most amazing phone i have ever seen ,, iam from egypt and i like this wonderful phone more than galaxy S II
Who ever says that Galaxy SII is the best smartphone in the market, says the truth. But that doesn't mean other phones are bad. Many complain about Arc S internal memory, processor and all that. But remember, price of both phones are different. In UAE, you will have to pay around 500 dirhams more for Galaxy SII. So for that 500 dirhams, sure, SII will have quite good configuration than Arc S.
Go for Arc S if you don't have tons and tons of softwares to download. I've installed around 40-50 programs in the phone (Does anyone really need more than that? Maybe.. But for me, it's more than enough). Can't say the battery is great.. But it's OK. Battery performance highly depends on user settings and type of usage. Camera is superb with 3D panorama and gives you good results. I didn't find any performance lag till now. The touch response is great...and it's so smooth. The pictures and videos crisp and clear. The OS is cool. The user interface of Arc S is so so so cool when compared to Galaxy SII. And finally the looks.... AWESOME. I got Arc S pure white. Show the handset to anyone... The response you will get is WOW. The look, the feel, the exclusivity (Coz Galaxy SII is more common :P) is just awesome. All for a less price than Galaxy SII. And one final word... The difference between Galaxy SII and Arc S is like difference between a wife and girlfriend. GAlaxy SII is the good wife with all the moral qualities but not so beautiful. Arc S is like a hot girlfriend that we like to flaunt.
