  • Summary: I guess I did not ready clearly. I did not know it is only 3G not 4G phone. So, I brought it back to Taiwan to my family. They did not have 4G by then.

It is nice, not great

Rafael Mateo, Amazon

  • Summary: I have the white model of this phone and it is very nice, thin and stylish. I use the phone for email, chat and browsing and so far it works good, with no lags. So, why 3 stars? because it feels cheap. It doesnt feel like a USD 400+ phone. It is made of plastic and it feels like if you're going to break it. Also the battery sucks. I barely have about 6-7 hours, with low screen brightness, few emails, few calls, etc.

Good phone - careful with the seller

  • Summary: It is a good phone given that the price is much lower than samsung phones and smartphones Sometimes the apps keep crashing and it's difficult to use the phone then Sometimes the phone gets really slow which makes it almost impossible to use properly, but it turns normal after a while Its not as good as Samsung or iPhones, but given that the price is much lower, i think is the best you can get in that price range. But be careful with the seller.

Great but limited

  • Summary: I have had this phone for 10 months now, and the limitations regarding memory for apps is showing... My Kindle app is very slow to load and frequently fails, and I can't download any more apps onto the phone. The phone still works, but I feel its time to move on. I'm using two great comparison sites to decide my next phone: [...] and [...]. I'll get my phone from Amazon, as I'm happy with my sim only deal and trust Amazon. Shame they've stopped offering Nectar points.

Meh

Secret Squirrel, Amazon

  • Summary: Not a great phone. Bad points; Underpowered - this results in lag when accesing the camera, navigating apps etc Fiddly buttons - the buttons on the bottom of the phone are fiddly and I kept pressing them by mistake when texting and similar. Poor socket placement - no idea why but the headphone and charging sockets are on the side of the phone, which makes the cables stick out in a way which can be intrusive. Why not just put them inline with the phone like everyone else?

Beaware Heavy Users Like Me

  • 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 have been using the phone ( which I picked up for £90.00 second hand) for about 2 months and as I spend most of my day in the office I can charge the battery whenever so that being my only major fault with the handset I am very happy. Stunning photo's, good sound, superb display.
  • Pros: Good looking, fast for single core, excellent camera.
  • Cons: Battery life could be better.

Gutes Smartphone, etwas in die Jahre gekommen.

  • Summary: Habe das relativ Ältere Modell nur als Reservesmartphone für den Urlaub mit Prepaid Aufladesystem gekauft. Die Akkulaufzeit ist leider schwach, obwohl ich einen neuen Accu dazugekauft habe. Keine Ahnung woran es liegt, vielleicht an der uralten Softwareversion.Android 2.3.4 . mein neueres Smartphone hat die A.Version 4.0.4. Das läuft gut. Bin absoluter Sony Fan, bis jetzt, aber andere Mütter haben auch schöne Töchter. G. R. H.
