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

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.

Overall the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc is a good smartphone for those wanting a device with a larger screen and needing good all round video and camera performance. Video playback and taking photos is what this phone does best, and frankly better than al...
The first true Android camera phone also happens to boast many other talents, and they’re all housed within an obscenely thin, covetable shell. While the Google Nexus S is for Android purists, the Arc is destined to be a mass market hit....
