Good for people who don't want more apps on their phone
22 June 2013
Summary: I found this phone has very low memory space.. You can't install more apps on this phone... else it will show you messages like phone is running on low memory and won't allow you to install/upgrade any other app....Moreover, phone will start killing running apps by itself... I won't recommend this product to people who love to have many and pretty heavy apps like games on their phone.
"Poor CPU, lack of front camera, and terrible support."
25 December 2012
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.
Summary: If you live in America do not buy this phone. You will not be able to use the data on any network. They fail to tell you this when you buy it. I bought one in January and now I have a $400 phone camera.
Summary: The phone is real sharp looking and I really liked everything about it but I noticed the data speed was very slow and realized it would only work using the EDGE Network ( AT&T and T-Mobile), I should have done more research before I paid all that money just to buy another phone. A bust in the States.
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. The default settings caught me out as it synchronised all my PC and online contacts producing numerous duplications; as it turned out, I had a number of opportunities to start from scratch.
Summary: Other phones are going with higher battery and ram. But sony tries to play it low. It has smaller screen, RAM and battery then HTC Sensation XE, Samsung galaxy S2 and Samsung Note. The battery matters a lot in such devices. Another problem with all Sony devices is that they are the last to release OS updates. The Koreans(Samsung) and Taiwanese(HTC) are fast.
Summary: Well, no doubt Sony Ericsson comes up with the best design and ergonomics, but is the 27-28 k price justified? Just think about it. The only upgrade you would get from the Arc to the Arc S is the processor. And that's not something to write home about to be honest. A mere bump in CPU clock speed isn't going to make it for anybody.
Summary: i was earlier skeptical about samsung so i opted arc over s2, after 6 months experience with arc and my friends with s2 i must say sony is pahtetic regarding technology and service is poor too. after a week usage it starts lagging seriously and ram is 512 only and less than 400 mb is available for use, how the hell can u install apps even though u can transfer to sd card still u become short of memory.
