Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc review:

 

It may not be among the dual-core, 4G superphones that have raised the bar these days, but even nine months after we learned of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc at CES , its specifications are strong and its in-hand use satisfying.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has a slim, gorgeous build, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and 720p HD video capture.

Several buttons on the Xperia Arc are too small, and the unlocked price would be a prohibitively expense for most. Call quality was mediocre.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a beautiful handset with some great features, but a high price tag and no network optimization leave few reasons to buy this unlocked Android phone.

Review: Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

 

Despite some rough edges, Sony Ericsson's new Android phone is worth taking a look at for its great design, beautiful display and excellent camera.

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

Flimsy, plastic feel to a 0 phone? Small and stiff buttons. Android’s quirks are more annoying than endearing. Price is a bit steep

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc Review

 

Sony Ericsson's 2010 Android range may have started promisingly, but software headaches undermined solid hardware and left many early-adopters with a low opinion of the company. 2011 is something of a relaunch for Sony Ericsson, then, with the XPERIA...

If the XPERIA Play failed to persuade us that it was the future of mobile gaming, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc has no such caveats when it comes to solid multimedia and all-round performance. No, it doesn’t have a dual-core processor or record Full HD,...

Like all good things Sony Ericsson, the Xperia Arc didn't wait for an official announcement to make itself known. First appearing on a set of teasing

Great camera ; Thin, light and beautiful ; Attractive UI atop Android 2.3

Iffy ergonomics ; Disappointing video quality ; Some software issues

It's no secret that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 was somewhat of a letdown considering it was pegged as the mobile giant's multimedia powerhouse. On paper, it looked great, but the reality was the likes of HTC's Sense UI made Sony Ericsson's Android...
