Summary: POSITIVES: + slim design looks very modern compared to other smart phones + large screen, great for using internet and viewing texts and emails + camera takes very good quality images + nice design and layout + great features that really enhance the phones use and look NEGATIVES - boasts the 3D camera but as of yet (having had the phone for over 2 months) still havent managed to successfully use this feature - battery life isnt great, probably for average use it would be...
Summary: Having carefully researched all the smart phones on the market integrating a top of the range 8mp built-in camera/video I purchased this phone for my wife from 'PrePaid Wizard' via Amazon in May 2012. Very efficient service from the vendor. The phone arrived packaged in it's original box with all the accessories plus an added bonus of a TV connector lead.
Summary: Bought this from PrepayWizard through Amazon for £245. Was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition despite the couriers (City Link) best attempts ! The Sony PC companion software immediately updated the phone to Android 4.0 ICS - took about 10 minutes, no problems. Transferred contacts from my old Nokia quite easily.
Summary: I purchased this phone from a website called Panamoz. It is a retailer in Hong Kong. I bought this phone as I think the IPHONE series is over rated and Sony can make as gooda phone as anyone else. My last phone was a Sony Xperia X1 and I wanted GPS mapping so I thought I would upgrade. I have had the phone a month and so far no problems have occured. Pros: * Light and Stylish phone. *The battery can last up to 9 days on a single charge.
Summary: I spent a lot of time researching what phone to buy, and after using an HTC and iphone, I really wanted to make the right choice this time. This phone is amazing - the screen is outstanding, camera amazing, so easy and simple to use you don't need an instruction manual and I am more than happy with it. The operating system is quick, screen very responsive and I have taken some very good quality photos using the camera.

Summary: Unfortunatley with Arc S you will notice that internal storage is mere 420 MB poor poor of Sony to decieve the users like this. It says 1GB internal storage and for apps you get only 420MB. This makes the phone slow and slower if you are loading a lot of apps like me. Plus the Memory is too low as well 339 MB...Sony Ericsson has 339MB of available RAM for your usage.
Summary: I did a lot of research before deciding on this phone, coming from an Htc Hero I did think I would stay with Htc. However, it was the promise of good battery life, excellent camera and music player that led me to buy the Xperia Arc S. I upgraded the operating system straight away to Android 4, another bonus, and it has made the camera even easier to use!
