Sony Xperia Arc Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Excerpt: Sony Ericsson had some serious catching up to do with the Android crowd after their quite frankly pants X10. What was a nice looking phone was marred by an irritatingly slow, over-skinned version of Android. Thankfully they have gone away and done some thinking and come back with what could be one of their best handsets yet: the Xperia Arc. What we like The first thing you will notice about the phone is how thin it is, at just 8.7mm it feels like an iPhone 4 on a diet.
Excerpt: Mobile handsets are getting better looking all the time, thank goodness. With handsets like Nokia N8, Dell Venue and the newly launched HTC Incredible, the competition for good looking devices is heating up and the Xperia Arc just took mobile sex appeal to a whole new level. It’s one of the first Gingerbread (out of the box) handsets to hit the shelves and here’s a closer look.
Excerpt: Undeniably attractive and super skinny, Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc is ready for a career as a runway model. This fashionable specimen measures a mere 0.46 inches thick at its thinnest point, the middle of the concave arc that runs vertically down the back of the phone. It manages to make my iPhone 3GS look almost obese in comparison. Slimness is a virtue in devices, as it reduces that embarrassing Visible Phone Line in your pocket.
Summary: The Arc is a benchmark for slimness, and a sexy looker that packs decent hardware. However, the pricing is on the high side and with the whole future proofing angle looming over single core devices and niggles specific to this handset, the Arc doesn't get the nod from us. 5 thousand cheaper, and we might reconsider...
Pros: Stunningly slim and a nice contoured design, A radical upgrade over its predecessor, Keys and buttons are well laid out
Cons: Pricing on the high side for a single core Android phone, Interface and menus have their quirks, Battery life isn't as good as we'd expected
Excerpt: S ony Ericsson has also embraced the Android platform, and due to Android’s success, it was of course, not a bad choice. Sony Ericsson’s sleek designs are often recognizable by their menu structure as well as the design. The success of smartphones and operating systems such as Android and iOs – of course also thanks to the large amount of Applications and mobile content - ensure for enormous growth in mobile data usage.
