Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S – one of the most stylish smartphones to hit the market

Gadgetmania
4 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The new Arc S is obviously not intended to be a replacement for the older Arc (you can get it of course, if you have the money), but a better purchase for those who buy their first Xperia – if you want more style than most of the Android smartphones can offer, while not sacrificing much in terms of features, this is the phone for you.

First review of 2012: Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

Gadget Guy
30 April 2012
  • Summary: The Arc S doesn’t represent a significant upgrade from the Arc, so won’t be a compelling buy for owners of the original. And while it lacks some of the speed, features and endurance of other smartphones it is a slick-looking smartphone with a good camera and strong interface.
  • Pros: Camera is very fast, HDMI port can be useful
  • Cons: Battery needs to be a lot better, No front-facing camera, Physical buttons require determined finger presses, Performance can lag

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc S review: The XPERIA Arc S remains a nice phone, but doesn't offer enough improvements over the original model

Good Gear Guide.au
23 February 2012
  • Summary: The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc S is basically the XPERIA Arc with a faster processor, slightly upgraded software and an 'S' tagged onto the end of its name. It remains a good phone but its plagued by the same issues as its predecessor: that being disappointing build quality.
  • Pros: Distinctive, unique design, Excellent camera, Great screen
  • Cons: Tiny buttons, Disappointing build quality, Almost identical to original

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S Review

1 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Although the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S isn’t the best phone we’ve ever reviewed, it does a solid job for its price point. Considering that it costs just £300 off contract, you’d be hard pressed to find better value for your money, especially as it packs a 1.4GHz processor and there is a planned future upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich at some point this year.

  • Summary: A speedy, smooth and classy handset upgrade that may not persuade existing Arc owners to upgrade but will appeal to newbies with its speedy chip and fabulous screen
  • Pros: Faster chip; fabulous display
  • Cons: The Arc S is not so different from the Arc, so existing owners won’t need to upgrade

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

Pocket Lint
31 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Before this year, Sony Ericsson was in the wilderness of phones. It had made the move to Android, but was still churning out unimpressive and slightly depressing handsets. Now though, the Ray, Arc and Arc S all offer truly modern mobile functionality, with stunning design and a good range of features. Sony Ericsson also manages to keep its UI customisations to a low level that doesn't interfere with the day-to-day operation of the phone.
  • Pros: Thin, light, speedy, nice customisations to Android, camera is good
  • Cons: Poor battery life, screen scratches easily, some antenna issues, camera app lets down the good camera hardware
