  • Some software usability niggles. Timescape doesn’t live up to its billing. Lack of Mac compatibility.Look and Feel...
  • Iffy ergonomics
  • Disappointing video quality
  • Some software issues
  • 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

  • Flimsy
  • 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
  • Connectionwise the Arc fee

  • The latest avatar of Android, Gingerbread, brings some much needed improvements to the table. The biggest one being better battery management, which is evident in the Arc's performance. I was easily able to cross 24 hours of usage, which included about 2 ...

  • No front-facing camera; audio connector located on the side; text input not as good as default Gingerbread keyboard.

  • 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

  • Thin and light build, Unique 'arc' design, 4.2inch Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine, Snappy and capable 8.1megapixel camera with f/2.4 lens
  • Small and impractical physical buttons, Needs to be handled with care
  • Analyzing the arcThe Sony Ericsson Xperia arc is good-looking, functional and primed for success - even if the 4.2-inch awesome display doesn't bowl you over for some unknown reason, its impossibly slim build will. Of course, the phone itself is not 100% ...
