Summary: I love the phone. IT's so elegant, very light, it has just 5 screens, which is a little bit disappointing (as I had 7 on HTC). It crashes more or less once a month, but it requires just switching off and on again.
Conclusion: ericsson Arc S has am impressive shape . the phone has a curve shape at the back. it works on a 2.3 version of android named as gingerbread. Ericsson Arc S now been outdated and has successful competitors in the market.
Summary: Not a great phone. Bad points; Underpowered - this results in lag when accesing the camera, navigating apps etc Fiddly buttons - the buttons on the bottom of the phone are fiddly and I kept pressing them by mistake when texting and similar.
Summary: Delivery very good indeed from the supplier. The currier lost the first phone - they attempted delivery, they (the currier) decided I was not in (actually I was) and brought the phone back to the depot.
Summary: My first smartphone! I've had a number of Sony mobiles and always been happy with them; I chose them mainly for the quality of the camera. The display is good; although resetting the brightness once you've dimmed the screen can be a challenge.

Summary: I got the phone in January and to be honest I have mixed emotions, I get really angry at the phone because it is way too laggy but it compensates for this by having truly outstanding sound quality.
Pros: Great design, great sound quality, great camera quality, I love the exploded overview and the (if you increase the brightness level) very bright screen.
Cons: Way too laggy (not enough RAM), hate the fact that there aren't settings in the notification bar (like there are with Samsungs) ,I don't really like the music player app because you cannot swipe the screen across to change song, you cannot change the volume from the screen and there isn't a way t...
