The editors didn't like

  • 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

  • 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
  • The Virgin Mobile Arc has a slightly crowded keypad and bad photo quality.
  • Iffy ergonomicsDisappointing video qualitySome software issues
  • Flimsy
  • Plastic feel to a 0 phone? Small and stiff buttons. Android's quirks are more annoying than endearing. Price is a bit steep
  • Several buttons on the Xperia Arc are too small
  • And the unlocked price would be a prohibitively expense for most. Call quality was mediocre
  • Poor text input
  • Poor battery life
  • Single core processor isn't as futureproof
  • Occasional lag / custom widget stutters
  • Plastic body may not be to everyone's tastes

  • Stunningly slim and a nice contoured design, A radical upgrade over its predecessor, Keys and buttons are well laid out
  • Pricing on the high side for a single core Android phone, Interface and menus have their quirks, Battery life isn't as good as we'd expected

  • Android 2.3, Mobile Bravia Engine, Excellent Exmor R camera sensor, Improved performance, despite being 'only' singlecore
  • HD output restricted to 720p, No ability to access media via DLNA, Battery life could prove a disappointment if the phone features are used too heavily
