Hello all. After reading several threads, I found an interesting idea how to fix the WiFi dropping. I changed the Network Name (of the WiFi connection), or SSID to capital letters only (eg. EUROPE), and it might work. I sounds really stupid but just try it. I tried at first, it didn't work. After restarting the phone, and after I opened the browser, it worked and the WiFi connection did not drop like it did.
If you have other solutions please share with us.

The design is over attractive , The back ... moreThat is untrue. I've the Arc S, bought the ad-free version of MX Player. While it does play 1080p videos, it struggles to do so. 1080 MP4 and subless mkv files are a no go; lagging frames and dropped audio results in unwatchable videos.
720 on the other hand. I've thrown MX Player pretty much everything I can and it plays everything smoothly at that resolution. Even when outputting via the HDMI cable.
It makes sense; if the Arc S was able to play 1080 then Sony could've just added 1080 video capture support. But they didn't, and it's obvious to see why. The CPU isn't cut out for 1080 processing.

Sony Ericsson 's fasted Android 2.3.4 boxed phone ,
The design is over attractive , The back curve is really charming , Great display , with reality and Sony BRAVIA engine , Great at Music .
Video player plays 720p mp4 or wmv perfectly :)
But It can also play 1920*1080p videos at any format by using Mx Player from Android market ,
Camera is Too good , and also in the dark !!!
when Its too much dark , increase the ev level and see the great result !
Exmor r technology for camera is good ,
Just a little Battery problem like all droid phone ,
Use low brightness , and increase it when u need it !
Use a app killer and kill the apps after using it ,
U r battery life will increase 2 times !
i have a problem with the new version of android 4.0.4 the wifi disconnects without any reason although it works in the same mobile at the same time with version 2.3.4
Hmm I just got dis new sonny experia arc and I am already having battery problems d battery cant even last 4hrs even without d 3g being on whereas my friends android can last 3days isit just my fone or isit common?
bought this phone few days ago, its very good overall, but there are some mayor problems:
-the firmware isn't well polished, often suffers from lag spikes and issues because of bad drivers, takes some patience to fix.
-battery is weak(i forgive that, after all its so slim and has many features)
-screen brightness doesn't change automatically although it should
-the biggest one: wifi has very weak signal, from what i've seen its hardware problem and can't be fixed. wifi drops signal when others still have 50%, and i have to be 2m from router to get full signal.(tested with 3 routers)
