Summary: "The screen and the camera are the two awesome selling points of this phone.. Also not to mention the seeeexy looks! There are some software issues. Like when you arrange apps by own order and reboot ur phone, they all align randomly again...
Summary: This is my first smartphone and I've had it for over 3 years. It's very sturdy, I've dropped it several times and have gotten water on it and it still works perfectly. It's kind of old now so I doubt many people will be buying it but it is super well designed.
Excerpt: I got this phone back in June of 2011 and I have loved it since. I was going around shops not really knowing what to buy because I wasn't really into phones back then. I walked into my local VM store and on the shelf was the Xperia Arc and I immediately went for it and to this day it is still my daily driver( well at least until Sony releases the i1 phone). And on another note I guess this phone is what got me into phones as a hobby of some sort.
Pros: Bravia Engine, Camera, Display, Music Player, Slim, Light, Good To Look At
Cons: Slow Updates, Battery, Power Button, Viewing Angles, Plastic Back
Excerpt: Device is Gr8 with Good Display with Bravia Engine Enabled and XLoud. The Only Problem is Battery and Lags in ICS Rest is Best. I Tried Ginger Bread, ICS, Jelly Bean Unofficial CM10. GB and JB were really Gr8.
Pros: Bravia Engine is Great for Album and Movies., Camera is Good in Daylight and HD Recording is Superb., Sexxy Looks with an Arc Shape is Gr8., HDMI Connects Cool., Supports USB OTG, Keybord and Mouse (Rooted).
Cons: Front Facing Camera is Not there., Battery should be 2000 MAH., Camera key is poor in capturing snaps., There should be soft keys for back and menu button as they were used a lot in android devices., 512 Internal Memory from which user gets less than 200 MB.
Summary: i love it. it has all what it takes a as a smart phone. Video quality is excellent and had adobe flash player so support video on any website. Picture quality is also not bad. My only problem is the absence of the front camera.
Summary: The LT15A Xperia Arc (Anzu) is simply amazing, this 1GHz single core processor holds its own against many of the current dual cores out there, even beating the SG SII in some areas. Its construction feels rock solid, and there are plenty of after market cases, accessories and mods on the internet for very cheap. There is however some bad news, the stock Sony apps and Sony bloatware weigh the handset down immensely.
