I would have preferred the upgrade to be on the RAM and ROM and not the CPU,I have been using arc for almost 4 months,no space anymore for additional apps,plus lag is increasing by time especially on thread messages.Would have be a flawless device if those 2 were at top.
why 512ram why and why battery so week 1500mah??..no 2nd cam?only 1500mah atleast it should be 2000mah
They changed only the processor????
- no secondary camera for video calls
- more RAM
This is just wrong. That update doesn't bring USB OTG functionality. It requires a live dock. USB OTG is a hardware thing, you can't just add it to the feature set with an update.
Always love SE.. this little machine is a masterpiece... graet job SE...
no secondary camera. all the same except the processor from 1ghz to 1.4ghz. 'S' stand for speed just like iphone 3G to 3GS. S for speed. cheers
is there is differ berween arc and arc s?
and why the ram is still 512mb?
i though it could be 786 or 1gb somwhat
Nice Nice!...everything is same except for processor,battery nd camera!
Why are they still upgrading new phones with just one thing?? Better processor but what about battery or RAM...
It's weird tactic
And I dont like that black frame around the display..
What, is this some kind of a bad joke? The only thing that's different from the original arc is the CPU which runs at 1.4GHz. I already got my arc running at 1.9GHz for benchmarking purpose though, and am on max 1.2GHz on daily usage. I don't see a reason of existence of this copy :/ Is SE going to follow (the bad steps of) Samsung? :/
Cannot be considered as an worthy upgrade from the original Xperia Arc unless there is an addition of a secondary video-call camera. Video calling from skype has been available for the Xperia Play,Neo,Mini Pro,Pro and Ray. However, it is not available for the Xperia Arc (even as a flagship!) due to the lack of a secondary video-call camera. A speed bump wont mean much if the GPU is still the same old adreno 205 either. And i believe the original Xperia Arc user (like me) has experienced lags here and there due to the insufficient USER AVAILABLE RAM. Therefore there should be a bump in the RAM as well.
