A Ghastly Mistake
13 April 2012
Summary: I purchased my Xperia Arc S from another supplier-ie NOT via Amazon. Being about to undertake a 7 week trip overseas I determined to make no purchases of Apps to supplement the phone's "as supplied" set until after my return. I also decided to use the phone only in 2G mode and pull down data (emails etc) using hotel WiFi. After 6 weeks pretty light use I noticed that the battery was discharging from 100% to nil in approx 16 hours.
Summary: I brought this as a step up from a Samsung Galaxy Europa and i was very pleased with the quality, service and speed of the phone and company providing it. The phone itself is very good with an 8GB card and all of the other accessories you need to get going, its very bright and fast and comes in an official Sony Ericsson box.
Summary: This phone is absolutely rubbish. I've only had it since December and it's now nearing the end of March. EVERY SINGLE app on the phone freezes, and refuses to work - this includes the messages, phone, log book, any other apps that came on the phone. So if I turn the phone off and on it will forget all my data, delete all apps and whatever, and it even set the date to 6th July 1980, it also forgot my location, changes the background on its own accord, and many other crap...
Summary: I looked at many reviews before purchacing this phone, and went for quality and price, the smart phone works very well in medium sunny conditions but in very bright sun it's more dificult as is with all this type of smart phones, Sony hasn't ugraded me to Android 4 as yet, "15/March/2012" the battery will last for 2 days+ if you don't use wifi and or 3g, but when you use the 3g the phone gets hot and only lasts the day if you are lucky.
Summary: My first android. Very fast, cool sensors (for games and the swiss army knofe app ;-), super light and comes standart with great software. Super surprised and glad I changed after 6 years with HTC to Sony. A truly good work from Sony here ...
