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

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
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
