  • The first thing you will notice about the phone is how thin it is

The editors didn't like

  • The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc gives a plasticky and flimsy feel for a $650 phone
  • And comes with stiff and small buttons. The phone also suffers from lots of Android quirks
  • Which according to us are annoying than endearing. The pricing for the phone can also be a problem for some.Random PostsTags

  • 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
  • The Virgin Mobile Arc has a slightly crowded keypad and bad photo quality.
  • Iffy ergonomicsDisappointing video qualitySome software issues
  • Flimsy
  • Plastic feel to a 0 phone? Small and stiff buttons. Android's quirks are more annoying than endearing. Price is a bit steep
  • Several buttons on the Xperia Arc are too small
  • And the unlocked price would be a prohibitively expense for most. Call quality was mediocre
  • Poor text input
  • Poor battery life
  • Single core processor isn't as futureproof
  • Occasional lag / custom widget stutters
  • Plastic body may not be to everyone's tastes

  • Ecran de qualité, Excellent rendu Photo et vidéo, Réactivité, fluidité, Sortie HDMI, Bonne qualité des conversations téléphoniques
  • Coque tout en plastique, Capteur de luminosité non paramétrable (désactivable), Faible autonomie, Surcouche maison pas assez poussée
  • Le Xperia Arc est un smartphone convaincant offrant de belles performances (photo, audio, vidéo, Internet, fluidité...) dans l'ensemble. On regrette que l'interface de Sony Ericsson ne soit pas plus poussée et que l'autonomie ne soit pas un peu plus gé...

  • Le Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc est un très bon smartphone. Il est donc plus court de citer ses rares défauts : une autonomie un peu trop classique en pratique (1 journée) et une luminosité d’écran qui ne varie pas automatiquement. Pour le reste, user et ...

  • Grand et bel écran, superbe intégration d'Android, agréable à utiliser, rapide, radio FM, caméra frontale pour vidéoconférence, bonne autonomie
  • qualité photo très moyenne, trop de lissage des pixels en photo
  • Présenté au dernier Mobile World Congress, le Xperia Arc se distingue des autres smartphone Android par son (très) grand écran... mais aussi quelques nouveautés by Sony Ericsson. Découvrez le test du Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc....
