Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S: Xperia Arc S: End of life or not?
9 December 2013
Summary: Sony Ericsson is a very popular brand amongst mobile phone marketplace. In the last years they brought on the market very much and good devices. At their time, some of those were top-notch and they still meet today's requirements. Maybe the most popular series from them was the 2011 Xperia Line. This included good phones for all budgets. From Xperia X8 and Xperia Mini, to Xperia Arc S and Neo V. In this article I will write about Xperia Arc S.
Pros: Good looking, Smooth UI, Still good for mobile gaming, Great music quality
Cons: Non hot-swappable SD-Card, Outdated specifications and software
Summary: I got my sony Ericsson xperia arc s in april 2012 and to begin with it was amazing. It was the first time I had a phone worth more than £150 so as you can imagine, I was amazed by all the things my new phone could do. However....The first thing that went wrong with this phone was the charger port. In october 2012 it broke and could no longer charge. I sent it back to sony and was charged £60 to get it fixed! Not what I expected after buying a phone worth over £300!
Summary: My time first started when I got my Arc S on contract from December 2011, Before I had the Sony Ericsson Xperia and I am someone who enjoys the new excitement of a phone and learning the new phone features but was disappointed that it was almost exactly the same as my old phone. The advantages that I personally love about the Arc S: its a thin phone and does fit nicely in your jeans pocket which I find super handy, it has easy view of what you choose to show on the home...
Pros: Good Battery. Thin and a good size phone. Camera. Choice of layout on homescreen
Cons: Small phone memory. Apps stay open in background unless you get a app to close them.
Summary: Positives: * Responsive * Light, good fit on hand * Good looking phone Things that can get better: * Battery life Bonus: * Getting Ice Cream Sandwich update soon. Sony on it already. :) Overall, the battery life should not prevent anyone from getting this phone. Also, got the phone within one day of ordering it (within 24 hours). Good job Flipkart!
