I just feel like this phone is great in a lot of ways, except 2 things! Processor, and build quality. I know it's smooth enough in daily use, but for gaming, web browsing, and doing a power intensive tasks it isn't. The design is great, still one of the best or probably the best in the world. But the plastic is really cheap, I'm sure that a lot of users agree with me. Sony should've put those 2 things, but they're too late already now
James, 28 Nov 2012The Arc S only got 1 GB internal memory,I've downloaded some games,but unable to transfer to s... moreBecause some apps can't be stored on SD card unless you use custom ROM. Then you can do whatever you want, if you use good ROM
The Arc S only got 1 GB internal memory,I've downloaded some games,but unable to transfer to storage card,why?
Guyzzzzz tell subway surfers work on this phone
please telll i want this if subway surfers work on xperia arc s
i have upgraded to ics 4.0.4 and after that did a full factory reset. now its super fast and no problem at all. only problem is phone getting very hot with heavy use. anyone know why?
This phone is outclass, much better then any dual core phones out there. My recommendation is too root it the time u get it. I have been using it for quiet long and i had zero problems with it. Not even a single hangup. The sound quality is superb much better then Galaxy Series and yes i must say highly customizable as it has a large development community.
Worth every single buck, Sony Ericsson did left its legacy with this phone. I wish Sony adapts it.
P.S: As for guys complaining about lag, make sure u update to the latest OS, the lag completely finishes, if still unsatisfied go for rooting and remove the bloatware. This bit** gets much smoother then butter.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2012The X1 and X2 have been plagued by build quality issues. The X2 though went the extra mile and... moreDon't think it'll go to JB. My one will only go to the revision if ICS that makes the camera fail despite there being a version which does make the camera work. Have had to revert to the GB 2.3.4 version.
Had much trouble with this one bkz of 512 ram and 512 for phone applications. This meant that it freezes and became slow a lot of time, and that there is no space to install application.
The X1 and X2 have been plagued by build quality issues. The X2 though went the extra mile and had horrendous software issues as well. In both cases however, the keyboard would crack after a few weeks of use, kinda like the W580 and S500 Sony Ericsson phones (read, poor product quality testing by Sony Ericsson).
Ironically, the Arc S and the Arc also suffer from poor product quality checks (notably the cracks above the proximity sensor).
On a completely different subject. There are some rumous on the Sony Mobile forums that a Jelly Bean OS is actually in the works for the Arc, Arc S, and the Ray. A phone user in Germany apparently was told this by the Sony Service Centre people in person. The ETA for the Jelly Bean is apparently in Q1 of 2013. Though we shouldn't expect much from this; service centre people are Tier 1 in terms of hierarchy. Managers would be Tier 2. To be able to know for sure whether we 2011 Xperia users are getting JB one would have to be Tier 4 at least...
Yeah. Just thought I'd throw this out there.
it is not supported . do not install it... It needs almost all of ur memory , it is not movable to Sd card ,and also not supported, if u go from play.google.com u will see it is not supported
