The editors didn't like

  • The Virgin Mobile Arc has a slightly crowded keypad and bad photo quality.
  • Some software usability niggles. Timescape doesn’t live up to its billing. Lack of Mac compatibility.Look and Feel...
  • Iffy ergonomics
  • Disappointing video quality
  • Some software issues
  • 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

  • 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

  • Abstract:  Sponsored links, if any, appear in green. We got the chance to spend a few minutes with Sony Ericsson's latest smartphone, the Xperia arc. The extremely sexy arc features a curved rear cover, as the name suggest, that measures only 8.7mm thick in its...

  • Sexy, slim design, Lagfree performance, Stunning 4.2inch display, Great Sony Ericsson customisation, Full connectivity including HDMI
  • Camera is not as great as we expected
  • It may not be absolutely perfect, but it's definitely a home run. Xperia Arc is the best Sony Ericsson phone in years, and the first great smartphone of 2011.

  • It’s sleek and sexy – exceptionally wellbuilt (though a little plasticish), It’s fast and fluid – more so than the Atrix (which is dualcore), Great multimedia functions (camera, audio), Thin & light!, One of the best displays on a mobile device,
  • Reversed button layout compared to the X10, Notification LED is on the side of the device, so not easily seen, Awkwardly positioned power/lock button that is hard to press, No frontfacing camera, though not a big deal
  • The is the device I’ll be recommending to almost anyone who asks me which Android device to go for. It’s fast, it’s sexy and it does the job extremely well. Sony Ericsson know they stuffed up with the X10, and that has motivated them to produce an a...
