Summary: hello, the product takes me almost a month to arrive and was worth the wait. I love my cell phone and as yet have not come out in stores here, everyone is amazed by it. Later I will continue to purchase other products.
Poor CPU, lack of front camera, and terrible support.

Summary: If you're a die-hard Sony fan, get the newer phones. Skip the 2011 series and move on to the 2012 ones. The arc S may seem to be a good phone at first sight, but after 2-3 months of use, you'll start to hate Sony (Ericsson) and this phone. Poor build quality, poor support, lack of front camera, weird placement of buttons and ports, mediocre CPU are only some of the many problems this phone has.
Pros: Large screen, 8 megapixels camera, Camera shutter button, HDMI port
Cons: Single-core CPU (Laggy Timescape UI), Poor support (ICS took a long time, lack of JB), No front camera, Impractical design (Audio port hard to connect properly, buttons hard to press), Cheap build - plasticky.
Amazing product! A real competitor for the iPhone!

Summary: When I found this phone, I was originally looking for an "iPhone 4 S". After long & endless searching for an iPhone within my budget on Ebay, I decided 'Why not just take a minute to compare some other Smartphones to the iPhone & see if there's anything like it... Well, not only did I find a phone that has everything the iPhone has - I found much, much MORE! I absolutely couldn't have chosen a better phone!
Excerpt: Overall,the phone have little lag,and performance was very good,nice and sexy design.But the battery sucks,it lasts less than a day with full use of it,and hope to have dual core processor instead of single core.Sometimes lag in UI but its okay....
Pros: 8.1 Megapixels camera, 1.4 GHz single core processor, 512 MB of RAM, Sexy design, Awesome music playback
Summary: I'm in love with my new phone. Was an upgrade from a phone that wasn't a smartphone. The only problem is that it's not sold in the U.S. and, therefore, I had to order the Zagg invisible shield online as well as the protective case for it.
