I won this.. very good phone. And I already unlcoked the bootloader and rooted.
now Im using various coustom ROMs.
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.
How to make a video call with normal network operator?

help me out pls
i have seen SE arc s beat S2 in a showdown.. arc s win even it is a sigle core..
I own arc, and like to point out some things clear. It's definately not a good camera phone. stills come with excessive noise and lack of detail,video has its colour washed out,orange and red appears pink and purple ,more over the shutter key is very hassle to use, and zooming is with lot of resolution lost..the build quality is questionable, the shiny bezel is scratch prone and the curved back cover rattles and makes sound which is really annoying. The ram is only 298 mb ,which fills up in notime running apps . The phone is quite laggy inspite of its 1 gig processor . So I suggest to keep this in mind if you are planning to buy an expensive phone like arc s..
dont ask opinion here about which fone is better, youll only get a bias answer..
if you want you can check and compare the phone youre choosing in between at the store before you buy
hint: when did single core beat a dual core?
and dont forget that MALI-400MP is better than adreno 205 and SUPER AMOLED PLUS is better than this LCD with LED backlight and last but not the list Samsung galaxy S2 is way more easy to tweak than this Arc S that you need to unlock the bootloader to tweak
Why all the people write here that the Galaxy S II its better. Go and buy it if its better than this.
I bought a SE ARC S for 1 week and its an excellent phone.
This phone is more more beautiful than SGSII all the time.
Go and buy it , u will never forget !!!
I think it's agood phone ,perfect designe ,speed one Although it's single core it can go nearly the same speed as dual core one.
Hi, im using this phone, procesor is really fast, quite satisfied. Camera is also great, have a lot of apps from android market. Internet good but not enough good. Scractch resistant not quite sure I see some lines on my phone, and I heard that galaxy s2, is mutch beter. Also batery is so pure, I dont want any dark display so I can save batery I want it bright. I had always nokia phones, maybe im not used to, I see nokia n9, mutch beter, but still im looking to change my phone with galaxy s2. Oh the tohch screen is very responsive, and I dont think that galaxy is something less than arc s, must be better.
