Both thin and light. Beautiful LED backlit display. Crisp images and video from the 8megapixel camera with Exmor sensor. Gingerbread version of Android is a huge improvement over previous iterations. Good voice quality on calls

Thin and Light
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has a slim
Android 2.3 Gingerbread
And 720p HD video capture.
The first thing you will notice about the phone is how thin it is
At just 8.7mm it feels like an iPhone 4 on a diet. The curved back fits great in the hand and is perfect for balancing the phone on the shoulder for some handsfree phone call action

Some software issues
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc gives a plasticky and flimsy feel for a $650 phone

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
Slightly creaky design, screen doesn't live up to the hype

It’s leagues ahead of the Xperia X10, there is no question about that. But there is also a feeling that an upgrade to the software would make it into a fantastic phone, rather than one that is just goodKey specs3.5mm jack, 3G, Android, Bluetooth, FM ra...
