Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a flagship handset from a company that was on the back foot in 2010. It brings with it a wave of exciting technologies - the Exmor R sensor, the Mobile Bravia Engine - it hits the right numbers too - 4.2 inches, Android 2.3.2, 8.1 megapixels, 8.7mm. It’s an overt design expression, a reaction to the criticism of the Xperia X10 , which was fat, sluggish and out-dated.
Pros: Looks great, lightweight, good camera performance, screen viewing angles are fantastic, relatively fast and stable in day-to-day operation
Cons: Screen is a little yellow, camera and video software could be better, back key location had us hitting on-screen buttons
