Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc - Major Sex Appeal

 

Mobile handsets are getting better looking all the time, thank goodness. With handsets like Nokia N8, Dell Venue and the newly launched HTC Incredible, the competition for good looking devices is heating up and the Xperia Arc just took mobile sex...

Thanks to the processing power and Gingerbread’s overall smoother functionality, the Arc triumphs (pardon the pun) in the functionality segment. However, at an MOP of Rs. 28,000, it did leave me wanting a little bit more – more media capability, a...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc (midnight blue)

 

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.

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...

Nonetheless, we always say you should buy a device because it satisfies you today, not for what it might do tomorrow, and on that front the XPERIA Arc is a solid choice. It’s certainly the best Sony Ericsson handset around today – in fact the best we...

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

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc preview: First look

 

Sony Ericsson is back at it and they are pushing pedal to the metal with their latest unusually curved and unusually streamlined sports car – the XPERIA Arc. Once one of the top three phone manufacturers, Sony Ericsson has been through some hard times,...

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc is a promising smartphone – it looks sleek, feels smooth and packs a very decent camera. And chances are that it will improve even further before it hits the shelves as there is plenty of time until then.

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...
