AnonD-66750, 21 Sep 2012but you didn't say to upgrade or not and sorry for my fault . did you tried to upgrade ??I'm holding out until Sony announce their decision in regards to Jelly Bean on 2011 phones. If they say yes, then I'll wait till JB shows up (and the subsequent reviews to make sure the new OS works properly on the Arc S). If Sony decide against JB on this phone, then I'll continue using GB until sometime next year.
The reason why I don't want to upgrade to ICS? There are a few biggish bugs on ICS. The LED notification light for example, and reports of wifi not going too well when the battery goes below 50%. Among various other reports.
That plus, JB implements Project Butter, so should be a smoother experience over ICS overall.

It's simply the build number that coincidentally happens to starts with 4.1 (the full build no. being 4.1.B.0.587). The update there is for the 2011 Xperia devices, installing ICS in the process.
IF (when) Jelly Bean does come out I'd expect the build number to start with 4.2.....

Mel, 20 Sep 2012What crack are you talking about?Try Google; you'll find plenty of people suffering from the issue, and pictures to boot. It's a well-documented issue around the world. Problem also includes the Arc and Xperia Arco (NTT Docomo's version of the Arc).
It shows up a few weeks after purchase from new. In my case, it took a week to show up (albeit near invisible). It's 8 weeks old now and it's definitely there, just isn't a 'open' crack yet.
Sony apparently is giving free fixes in most countries under warranty but the results of the fixes vary. Most people say the issue returns even with replacement housings, despite Sony saying (in most countries at least) they are using different material to construct the replacement housing. And there are a few people who report that the cracks don't return after the replacement. Then there are the lucky few who apparently don't get the cracks in the first place.
Villawood, 20 Sep 2012My Xperia Arc is as good or better than any other phone out there. The Arc-S is the same phone... moreThanx sir... But i want to know that is it able to download heavy applications as its internal memory is around 350 MB only...
The only thing I can fault with this phone are the cracks near the proximity sensor. Some people have them despite taking it to the repair centre, it returns. Some don't see it return. And some are just lucky and don't get the cracks in the first place...
Sucks that another Sony flagship (the Xperia S) also has an issue, though more problematic with screens going bad.
Will I be returning to use a Sony on that fateful day when my Arc S dies? Probably, yes. Though I'll research a bit more before doing so.
