By the way, switch the bravia engine off..it will just consume your battery on a daily basis. Its only intended for viewing photos and videos but i cannot find a very noticeable difference whether it is switched on or off even in viewing pictures and vids so i feel its not that important for me.

Every smart phones now that uses multi core processors has an identical endurance. My acro's actual endurance is 30 hours and fair enough recharge at night and operate the next whole day round.

I bought this phone a week ago and I am very happy with it! the camera is superb and the screen resolution is simply divine... the only drawback for this unit is the battery life even if you deactivate the vibrations and decrease screen brightness, it can only last a little over 24 hours... but, i still give this phone an A+

necronen, 15 Dec 2012When water proofing a phone it consumes more space by sealing all internal chipsets. That is ... morexperia acro s only looks bulky on the pictures in the web but actually it is very slim when you hold it and very comfortable on the hand..trust me its not that bulky if you are very curious, please pay a visit on some showrooms so you can feel it.
My acro can last up to 2 days with normal use, texting, 15 minutes call, one time email sync per day, took some five shots, transfer photos to my laptop via bluetooth, radios on demand only, use juice defender, screen at 30% brightness. do not use apps killer, its useless. Just make sure that you have strong internet connection during synchronization, quicker sync means less power consumption. My place in Bohol Philippines has a good signal coverage so less battery fatigue. Don't worry, according to sony, charging often will not cause any effect on xperia acro's battery life. It is designed to handle that. I'm a satisfied owner, sony's UI is among the best, as what HTC does on Sense UI. xperia acros is very optimized and polished to run ICS. I used to be disappointed with my old Sony ericsson Satio...although it last for me about 3 years now. Satio has awesome camera...under good lighting conditon its perfect as any point and shot cameras can do. but sony acro s performs way better xmor R, BSI camera is the same sensor on sony's point and shots available, the only difference is the flash, todays mobile devices use LED flash instead of zenon units because zenon needs to charge after firing a flash and it needs higher power to charge its power capacitor. LED is ok on a mobile it cant match but it can deliver a certain optimum performance beside we are not fond of taking pictures in the dark, just explore all the settings so you can find the perfect timing of good shot..regardless of light presence...NICE ONE SONY..
frnds i going to buy xperia arc s ....pls tell me is there any problm with this phone

That is why it looks more bulky.
How long does the battery last when surfing the net using wifi? and watching videos?
Help please. I bought one last night but every time I send a message there's an extra charge aside from the charge from the text itself. Any suggestions? thanks so much.

i think the design of acro s is base on a shock proof phone like the xperia active..
I wonder why sony didn't use the same design on acro s as xperia v, V is more slim and nice but acro s so big and clumsy. I think they did this on purpose cuz they know that some ppl will drop the acro s and move on to xperia v mainly cuz of its design. Its all about money. I mean Acro s was released in August and 4 months later we have a new water resistant phone.
ryana, 10 Dec 2012i heared there is a problem connecting to wifi< is that true?No problem connecting to wifi at all. Had the phone for 1 month now and have been good to me. Batt life can last throughout the day, much better than S3 :).. Waterproof is excellent
