My Samsung SGS2 is faster in most respect, but not by much. SGS2 sometimes hang, but never happen with my Xperia Ray. My Arc S is brand new, so I'll not comment for now. But I do not think that there will be any problem with my Arc S, as it's basically got th same internal as the Ray.
The Arc S is definately more friendly to use then my SGS2, and the Arc is so much better looking. My SGS2 (black color) is a bit cheap looking, the whitee version which came out recently does look better.
Do not install Skype, it drain the battery so unbelivably fast! Battery should last for one day without problem, even with data & background data turned on - provided you are not a heavy user.
Dhaval , 19 Sep 2011Sony ericsson really you cant compare this with samsung galaxy s 2... Bcoz galaxy 2 has bett... morefor ur knowledge it has sony bravia display , led not lcd even its ram is 512 it can way ahead than galaxy's 1 gb ram
Sony cheats I have xperia x10 and it su..ks. They wont upgrade the firmware where as samsung and htc does it a year ago. Dont biy sony friends they just cant keep up with the smart phones. there phones look smart in thpictures but in hand it is not worth compared to rivals
To thos who's owner ot this device please share us how last the bettery life . I wish to get one of this but use to be owner of x10 bettery life is not good .
Why do they make such a high end phone without the without the basic feature of video calling with the front facing camera ????. That's really sad ...
, although very much enjoy the pocket friendly size of the Ray, I ws not so happy with the small fonts until now that I have installed the "spare parts' apps., which I can enlarge the fonts size for a very comfortable reading experience.
Still, I'm thinking hard of getting te Arc S in white, which is very attractive to my eyes. I got bored with the look of my black iPhone, and I do not even like the white version at all.
AnonD-16718, 23 Sep 2011Why and Whats the reason for avoiding
in Many Sony Ericcson Phones ,
The... moreHow many people see & talk with 3G phones?? ... Front camera are being use most by girls as a make up mirror, seriously speaking.
I think this is the perfect phone. At least for it's price range.
It has the looks. It has the power to run an Os which some dual-cores can't handle. It also has one of the best cameras to date.
The only thing thats missing is a video-call camera but i don't think thats sorely missed because though everyone wants it nobody ever uses it.
Android phones MUST have more on board memory, at least 4GB, there are still a lot of apps that don't allow you to save to SD and that 1GB gets used up very very quickly. I have this problem with my HTC Desire and need to delete apps to add new ones.
The rest of the specs seem great on this, but how can anyone make the most of Android Market with only 1GB memory??
Why and Whats the reason for avoiding
in Many Sony Ericcson Phones ,
Then How can we See And Talk in 3G ....
:-( :-( :-(
some things i would like to see on a future SE phone:
32GB internal memory or more + support for 32GB microSD,
1080 video recording,
longer battery life,
louder speakers for when i watch movies,
3D camera and video capabilities would not be bad either
SE! stop messing around and give us dual core, and a bigger battery, if you do I will trade in my Galaxy S2 and buy two SE!
I like this one as other se phones. It has a great design along with great features but if the camera had been 12 meg pix then it would had been even more attractive than this.
Arc S is already available for sale in Hong Kong on the 22nd of Sept. Very nice looking phone in White colour, although in my opinion not as nice as the Pearl White colour which is available in Japan. Ars S is running Android 2.3.4, other recent Xperia models will be able to receive the upgrade soon. Selling price is HKD3,998., wich is approx. USD515.
