Too bad, looks like there's compatibility issue between BMW's car bluetooth with the software version of Arc S.
nik, 12 Dec 2011wtf.....? without a secondary camera at this high price its not good at all... they should hav... moreExactly ...
For SE to not include a front facing camera in the ARC S makes crap in the overall sense.
Here are some points to NOT buy this phone :
1. No front facing camera - Skype with video call is out for android and works great, but you can't use it.
2. Compression of pictures decreases the quality dramatically - unlike what people think, the quality is messed up by the overcompression in .JPG ..
3. The speeddifference between the original ARC and the ARC S is marginal - you will not feel the difference.
4. SE's android skin is badly designed - They should hire professional graphic designers for a change. Same goes for samsung b.t.w.
Solve these issues SE, and I would have bought this phone ... I'm sick and tired of all these phone manufacturers trying to fool consumers ...
Hi, just bought this phone a few days ago and was just a bit concerned about the phones heating issue which i have also read in a few posts here because my phone kinda heats up after just using it to transfer files through bluetooth such as pix nd stuff. Didnt use it for browsing but still it heated up.. Also, can anyone tell me how to create a photo album in the gallery.. I think i did everything and still cant figure it out.. Its kinda my first android phone.. Pls. Help..!! Thanks!!
why can't find a so y ericsson phone beat the galaxy .. i like sony no matter how much money will be payed, but the galaxy is better every thing !
Ejimkaraonyec, 14 Dec 2011I like what I see in this phones spec but I am a lil worried. Unless the android version this ... more320 mb is enough for heavy users as long as you make sure every moveable apps are moved to sd.. and also don't forget to use app cache cleaner to free up internal memory than are also used up for browser cache.. there are more apps supporting apps2sd than before.. so no worries =)
The Features and the display are awesome but the only problem comes here is poor battery backup.
Not only this phone all android OS phones are facing this baterry problem.
Wanted to buy this phone, but after seiing Nyphon LT22 i will wait for it...
I'm choosing among this phone, SGS2 and iPhone 4s. Though SGS2 is a feature-rich phone, I think it lags behind SE and Apple in terms of overall quality. I'm still actually confused which to choose as I rank the three as follows:
8.5 iPhone 4S
8.0 SE Xpeira Arc S
7.8 Samsung Galaxy S2
It's gonna be iPhone, right? Haha!
Ejimkaraonyec, 14 Dec 2011I like what I see in this phones spec but I am a lil worried. Unless the android version this ... morethe internal memory is just fine. U can move most of ur application to external memory.
I like what I see in this phones spec but I am a lil worried. Unless the android version this phone runs is not limiting some apps to phone memory, I would say its not better than my samsung galaxy gio. I only want to change because my internal memory is too small.
Please if u are using this phone, kindly tell me if the internal memory is causing heart break. Thanks
I have a BmW X3 with bluetooth capabilities, I can link my phone to the system but it will not download my contact list. It will download my husband's blackberry though. Is this a problem with the phone or is there a way to do this that differs from other phones.

Hey.. Thanks a lot for replying..!! ^_^. Just one more question though.. Does this phone support those Themes that kinda changes the phones widgets/icons. I've seen some in LG Phones which were using Android 2.2 but I'm not quite sure if these are also available for this phone or this Android version(specifically this phone). Thanks again!! ^_^.
