The editors didn't like

  • Iffy ergonomics

  • Flimsy
  • Plastic feel to a $650 phone? Small and stiff buttons. Android’s quirks are more annoying than endearing. Price is a bit steep.
  • Single core processor isn't as futureproof
  • Occasional lag / custom widget stutters
  • Plastic body may not be to everyone's tastes
  • Mostly Made of Plastic
  • No microHDMI Cable Included
  • Some Apps Cannot Be Uninstalled
  • MicroSD Card Position
  • Several buttons on the Xperia Arc are too small
  • And the unlocked price would be a prohibitively expense for most. Call quality was mediocre.
  • Some may appreciate the two tone approach to the colour scheme on the back of the handset but personally we don't. Things also feel slightly too plasticky
  • With the size and weight of the Arc giving it an overly flimsy quality
  • Connectionwise the Arc fee

  • If the XPERIA Play failed to persuade us that it was the future of mobile gaming, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc has no such caveats when it comes to solid multimedia and all-round performance. No, it doesn’t have a dual-core processor or record Full HD...

  • Abstract:  Tweet With the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Sony Ericsson has gone for a refreshingly different approach from its main competitors. Rather than focus on the latest dual-core super-fast processors and ultra-high megapixel cameras, it’s focused instead on...

  • Wrapping up our review of the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc we have to say that the company seems to have nailed it this time. The thin arched profile makes you forget that you are holding a gadget with a huge 4.2” screen. On top of that it is very light th...

  • Iffy ergonomics, Disappointing video quality, Some software issues
  • Sony Ericsson could've called this the Xperia Art and no one would have been surprised. Its 4.2-incher is one of the most photogenic smartphones we've come across yet and its design exhibits an artistry and a flamboyance we rarely get to see. Construct...
