Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

 

Leaner, meaner, stronger, smarter? Er, no. But it is faster.

Slim design, Good camera with shutter button, Good connectivity

Slim design is difficult to hold, Only single-core processor, Feels plasticky

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

 

Solid but svelte, excellent provision for video and music content, superb screen

Fiddly buttons, limited internal storage means splashing out on an SD card

The Arc S is an excellent addition to the market, and ideal if video is a high priority

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

 

Sony Ericsson had something of a critical hit on its hands with Xperia Arc. Here at Pocket-lint, we thought it good enough to earn four stars, and we had only quite minor complaints. And recent days have proved that this is an interesting time for Sony...

Thin, light, speedy, nice customisations to Android, camera is good

Poor battery life, screen scratches easily, some antenna issues, camera app lets down the good camera hardware

Before this year, Sony Ericsson was in the wilderness of phones. It had made the move to Android, but was still churning out unimpressive and slightly depressing handsets. Now though, the Ray, Arc and Arc S all offer truly modern mobile functionality,...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S review

 

The eye-catching Xperia Arc is back with an S – for speed – tagged to its moniker. But is it an upgrade worth snapping up?

The sleek Xperia Arc is now slick as well, though it’s the S's screen that still dazzles

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

We loved the design of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, we loved the 4.2-inch 854 x 480 display, we loved the 8.1-megapixel camera and we even found that

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S review

 

A minor phone processor update or an essential Android refresh?

Fantastic big, bright, sharp screen ; Great user interface customisations ; Fast and pretty good stills camera ; Very thin and light ; Good battery life for its size

Blotchy 720p video results ; Mismatched widgets ; Still only five home screens ; Tiny power button and camera buttons

Sony Ericsson has revamped one of its best phones in years, the Xperia Arc, with a faster processor and a fancy 3D panoramic picture mode. Rechristened as the Xperia Arc S, it's virtually the same phone…

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc S review

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S has a very slight outward curve to its long edges. This is accentuated by the inward curving silver side panel. Some people have made a lot of this feature, though we aren't particularly taken with it.

Sony Ericsson hasn’t always made the best of its smartphones, and some models can be described as, frankly, disappointing. But the Xperia Arc S is a thin, light and powerful Android smartphone, although it’s let down by some build issues.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S Review

 

Sony Ericsson's Xperia Arc S packs the same camera as the original Arc (8.1-megapixels) and a speedy 1.4GHz CPU.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is an excellent phone, boasting an incredible camera, slick design and fast performance. Compared to phones of a similar price like the Galaxy S2 (to which it is currently similarly priced) it's not quite as powerful when...
