Summary: I bought one of these for my wifey, got a great deal ($580) and it's suprisingly good! She's very impressed with it. Arc S has same shell but is upgraded over the older Arc. Good hardware design, it's good looking, slim and light, has a curved back that feels very nice in the hand. It's actually comparable is size and slimness to my Samsung Galaxy SII (the king of phones at the momment), 8-megapix camera takes some sharp as shots and they look good on the 4.2" screen.
Summary: Not very happy with this phone. Its ok. It looks great, but it really lags a lot when typing messages and takes forever to load things which is frustrating. Crashes more than other phones Ive had too.
Pros: Camera, batterylife not too bad, looks great
Summary: Better than my iPhone 4, have not updated to ICS as their are some bad reviews on the Sony blog but so far this phone is much nicer than my iPhone 4. Bought it for the wife might keep it myself.

Summary: When the Arc S was new, the screen looked out of this world, much better than iPhone 4. Love the camera's Panorama feature as well. Better call quality and reception than iPhone 4. After 4 months, suddenly lost backlight and stopped charging. Came back from Sony authorised repairer two weeks later. Working, but when entered sleep mode you had to remove the battery to turn it back on. A few days later, died completely, couldn't switch it back on at all.
