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.

Thanks man.
Andy32, 05 Jan 2012The Arc S got no secondary camera which means I cannot make video call. Anyway to solve this p... moreyou can videocall, but showing what your back camera sees. at the moment front cameras suck, so I think they just didn't bother putting one; though there are many uses for a videocall with the HD camera. 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.

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.
