This is nothing more than an Xperia Arc. ERVERYTHING IS THE SAME except top download speed is higher (even though your provider probably can't even reach the old Arc's top parameters in almost every circumstance). And the processor has 400 more MHZ. As we all no more MHZ mean nothing, it is just a different signal. This is literally the EXACT SAME PHONE TO A T. They could of at least made a slide out keyboard to justify this price. I am happy with my ARC, but I always get SE's flagship model. This isn't worth the "upgrade" if you can even call it that.
I always leave my Samsung SGSII at home, because the phone doees not have style, and the plastic looks cheap. But i really like to carry the SE Arc S with me, as it looks good & make me feel proud.

Mugizi Roland Roxy, 25 Sep 2011It lacks inbuilt TV player and the internal memory is very Small. It should be upgraded up to ... moreSigned under... It has 2 low internal memory. Just like the HTC Desire (original). Than you root it - change the ROM and use A2SD with EXT partition... and... the phone is slower that way (read/write 2 SD sys files)... They should upgrade it yeah, just like HTC did with Desire S... Think about it... :)
PS: Great phone BTW - my sister has it... ;)
It lacks inbuilt TV player and the internal memory is very Small. It should be upgraded up to like atleast 8GB. Otherwise I like its sleek design.
if this phone use screen super amoled ,i think it very good because now i very like it
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2011this phone win by a mile in the looks department against samsung s2. however, feature wise, sa... moreFeatures does not always mean user friendly, it can only mean complication. BTW, I personally do not find any practical features with my SGSII which can really impress me!?
The messaging feature of the SE Ray/Arc impress me, as they are so easy to use without taking any lesson - very logical. One messaging feature is very impressive - when typing with the normal keyboard, I can just swipt my finger from left or right; or from right to left, and it will move to the qwerty keyboard. How simple & easy - this is what I call design.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2011wow! how many phones do you have? does arc s have secondary camera?No secondary camera.
Yes, I do buy a lot of mobile phones often, even though I mainly use their basic features - I'm not the IT type of person.
If I like the look or if people say that it's good, I'll just buy it.
I purchased the iPhone 4 (2 of them at the same time) because I liked the look of it, gave one to my sister-in-law; and kept one for my own use. I used it for exactly 7 days, not impressed at all (do not like the trouble of iTune), I gave my iPhone 4 to my girlfried (she is still using it - she had never use or try Android phones, she like the iPhone). I went to my service provider & brought a BB 9700, which provide good call quality and look professional.
I brought the SGSII because the electronic store manager said that it's good (with good screen and good function, and that he is using one himself). The phone is light & thin, which I like, but the phone does look kind of cheap. I really wish there will be a more pocket friendly toouch screen phone for me to purchase, then came the SE Ray. I purchased the Ray right away when it was available. I was using the Ray on my Japanese trip, which I found that the smaller screen not as comfortable to read the map. other than this, I'm quite happy with SE Android phone.
After I got back from my trip, I went to look at the Arc S (the first day when it's available for sale), I really fell in love with the look of the white Arc, so I purchased it.
If you are looking for a user friendly good looking Android phone with good performance and no hang (unlike SGSII & iPhone or Moto Atrix), go for this Arc S.
this phone win by a mile in the looks department against samsung s2. however, feature wise, samsung s2 won by ten miles!
