I have newly bought my arc s. Currently i m using Ginger bread version android in my phone.
I m looking up for good battery back up, good performance i.e applications should run fast, handset shouldn't get hanged and good browsing experience.
Kindly suggest me whether to update OS to it s latest version.
Is it worth updating to ICS official update of sony.
Or i should wait till Jelly bean official update to this phone, since i heard lot negative comments for Arc S ICS update.
Just flash custom rom like Jelly Sandwitch v7.4,Xperia Ultimate HD......you can feel the phones real face....

I think 4.0.3 is the best android version for this phone. One-click root software's available for this version.

Byke0712, 01 Nov 2012Actually, as far as I know is it does have a front camera as you can see on the photo posted..... moreYou just failed.
Sorry, but people REALLY need to do some research (or scroll down the page for previous comments); this page has seen the same questions asked repeatedly, non-stop, because said individuals CBF scrolling and clicking a few more times.
Answers to common questions:
- No, it does NOT have a front camera. The picture there depicts an ambient light sensor and the long oval one is the prox. sensor.
- Yes. Despite not having a front camera, Skype works fine. Just no video calls (though I understand this depends on the firmware that's installed).
- No. Don't install ICS 4.0.4 if you're concerned about performance. The phone will slow down, and for power users you will notice it significantly. Not to mention, Sony have yet to fix issues with Wifi, the notification LED, and the recorded audio in video recording is stuck on mono instead of stereo.
So for Pete's sake. Research people.
