Hi yuki, I've been using Arc s for 4 months now, Let me give pros&cons so it can help u to decide.
Excellent design,Camera and Multimedia features.
UI is very smooth and lag-free especially after upgrading to ICS.
Low RAM(512mb) and internal memory(420mb).
New ICS update still has lot of bugs and No Jelly Bean update(no future releases from Sony).
Overall I'm satisfied with this, But I'd recommend S2 as it has more specs than Arc S and S2 will get Jelly Bean update soon.
hey guyz, need ur help.i wil buy a new phone nxt week.my budget is 15k-18k...or can i go for s2 or xperia arc s? help
pj., 20 Nov 2012can i ask a question how long the battery life of arc s if you want to text whole day or call.?It would last one day if you text and call 24 hours, and screen brightness is at lowest, using 2G.
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2012o2 are lazy , but5 ics .587 is 90% bug free! I am live in iraq I dont work o2.
Is there an official Android 4.0.4. upgrade for Xperia Arc S in UK?
I read o2 locked phones wont be getting it as o2 claim the phone will suffer.
I would like to know if what o2 say is true is it worth upgrading to Android 4.0.4.?
I have Sony Xperia U which I have upgraded to Android 4.0.4. and so far its not bad although i have had 3 repeated text messages but that may be 3 network which i am using.
Fack android 4.0.4 for xperia arc s because. Very bad for working game strong.
can i ask a question how long the battery life of arc s if you want to text whole day or call.?
It has very little internal memory and sometimes it lags and overheats a LOT. Other than that, is a beautiful and stylish phone with a great screen and camera.
the fne z gr8! bt internal memory let it down! n the lck of frnt camera!! :(
It's very lovely , cool & easy handle, smooth functions
all, which I want.
Thank you "SONY"
If you want stability then go for Gingerbread,
If you want to see better interface then go to ICS.
If NBA 2k13 has only also been optimized for Gingerbread then I have already forgotten about the idea of upgrading to ICS.
I see people complaining about bad battery performance. I am running stock ICS and the phone runs a whole day easily. Just uninstall unnecessary apps. You don't need to use task-killer apps. You may use Easy Battery Saver or Juice Defender only.
