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

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
No front-facing camera
Audio connector located on the side
Text input not as good as default Gingerbread keyboard.
Very Poor Battery Life
Average Call Quality
Touch Lacks Accuracy
Auto correct is horrible
Phone gets hot randomly and battery life strictly OK
Several buttons on the Xperia Arc are too small
And the unlocked price would be a prohibitively expense for most. Call quality was mediocre.

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...
