Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S review

 

Xperia arc S up for order on Sony's site, could ship this weekSony Ericsson Xperia Nozomi LT26i caught by Mr. Not-so-blurrycamSamsung

Distinctive design ; High-quality still camera ; 4.2-inch screen is a TFT wonder

New features are niche, bordering on gimmicky ; Not enough here to recommend itself above the original Arc

The Xperia Arc S is a minor technical upgrade to the original Arc. Although the hardware here is still sound, there are better phones available if you're willing to pay just a little more.

Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S review: S as in Sophomore

 

Raise your hand everybody who at any point these past few months wanted an Xperia Arc. Whoa, not bad. Hardly a surprise though. Who wouldn't want it? The Arc is pure class, a daring display of skill and style. Now, you might just want...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S (Unlocked)

 

The Sony Xperia Arc S is a lightweight, unlocked Android phone that still manages to pack an expansive screen and powerful multimedia features.

Attractive design. Beautiful screen. Responsive performance. Sony's UI overlay adds rather than detracts.

Middling processor. Poor battery life. Must pull the battery to swap memory cards.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The standard-size 3.5mm headphone jack, 8GB microSD card, and included Sony earbuds make the Xperia Arc S a fine music player right out of the box. My 32GB SanDisk card worked fine, but you have to pull the battery...

Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S Review

 

After redeeming its Android mojo with the sleek and capable Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, the company decided to out an upgrade as a stopgap flagship until it eventually makes it to the dual-core Nozomi rumored for next year.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S Review

 

The Xperia Arc S is a confusing device. It performs well, and has an impressive sleek form factor. The little tweaks implemented on Android work well, and the smooth OS performance is a real positive. However, it is priced very close to the dual core...

Very sleek form factor, Good performance, Crisp display, Quite a few little OS tweaks and enhancements

Just a single core processor, on paper, Doesn�t feel as nice to hold as the predecessor

Sony-Ericsson Xperia Arc S Review

 

The Sony-Ericsson Xperia Arc S did not deviate much from the original Arc except for the bump in processor speed (and the additional colored variant) so it's not really a huge improvement, in my opinion. Nevertheless, those extra clock cycles will...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S review

 

The past 11 months have seen Sony Ericsson recover from the disappointments and frustrations of its early Android efforts, releasing a solid line-up of well-designed Gingerbread-based phones in a ra...

However, the Arc S is proof that you don’t have to shell out quite so much cash for a great mid to high-end smartphone. If you decide to pick one up, we don’t think you'll be disappointed.

Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S Review

 

Look past the flaws and you'll see something beautiful.

Beautiful screen; Thin and lightweight; Great camera and decent Timescape UI

Poor viewing angles; No front camera; No hot-swappable microSD slot; Not a lot to offer over original Xperia arc

The arc S runs Gingerbread version 2.3.4 which has various updates such as 3D sweep panorama and swipe with T9. It shares the same screen as the original arc which is a 4.2 LCD with a resolution of 480×854 and a pixel density of 233ppi. Sony’s Bravia...
