Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

CNET
15 February 2012
  • Summary: While the Xperia Arc S doesn't qualify as a massive improvement over its direct predecessor, the Arc, it is nonetheless a solid choice. Its eye-catching design is backed up by a great screen and a surprisingly powerful 8.1-megapixel digital camera.
  • Cons: Not a radical change from the Arc; CPU is single-core; Case feels a little cheap.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S Review

2 January 2012
  • Summary: The Xperia Arc S is a confusing device. It performs well, and has an impressive sleek form factor. The little tweaks implemented on Android work well, and the smooth OS performance is a real positive. However, it is priced very close to the dual core phones, which it is not.
  • Pros: Very sleek form factor, Good performance, Crisp display, Quite a few little OS tweaks and enhancements
  • Cons: Just a single core processor, on paper, Doesn�t feel as nice to hold as the predecessor

  • Conclusion: The arc S runs Gingerbread version 2.3.4 which has various updates such as 3D sweep panorama and swipe with T9. It shares the same screen as the original arc which is a 4.2 LCD with a resolution of 480×854 and a pixel density of 233ppi.  Sony’s Bravia Engine helps sharpen images and improve the overall quality of your photos when viewed on the phone’s screen. The 8 megapixel camera has image stabilization, autofocus and is capable of taking videos at 720p.

  • Summary: The changes to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S really are minimal – and we didn't really notice the hike in processing speeds. As such, we'd be tempted to opt for the older Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc instead, as it's beginning to represent serious value for money.

Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S Review

Phone Arena
11 October 2011
  • Conclusion: In our review of the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc we said the company has nailed it, but now with the Xperia arc S, we’d say we have a minor upgrade on our hands. The thin arched profile that makes you forget you are holding a gadget with a huge 4.2” screen stays, as well as the light weight and sleek and classy look. The Timescape UI is also very pretty and functional with its “Facebook inside Xperia” addition.
  • Pros: Thin, tall and narrow chassis makes it more comfortable to use than other big-screen Androids, Camera with good low-light capabilities and native Panorama options, Excellent loudspeaker
  • Cons: Still no front-facing camera, Minor upgrades compared to the Xperia arc

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

  • Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S has a very slight outward curve to its long edges. This is accentuated by the inward curving silver side panel. Some people have made a lot of this feature, though we aren’t particularly taken with it.

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
13 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
