Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

 

Super slim and sleek yet powerful and feature packed. Sounds like a winning combination to us.

Super slim ; Brilliant screen ; Camera has shutter button

Doesn't have a dual-core CPU ; Almost too slim ; Battery life still not great

If you like your smartphones sleek and slim yet still packed with features, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc should be high on your list. It's among the thinnest phones in its class yet packs in a large high quality screen, has a better camera than most –...

Can the ultra-slim Xperia Arc put Sony Ericsson back among the Android leading pack?

Super-slim and stuffed with neat video and imaging tech, the Arc is a return to form for Sony Ericsson

Super-slim and stuffed with neat video and imaging tech, the Arc is a return to form for Sony Ericsson

Until now, Sony Ericsson’s flagship Android smartphone was the alarmingly under-powered Xperia X10, running on version 2.1 of the OS and only recently updated with multi-touch.That leaves the new Xpe

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a flagship handset from a company that was on the back foot in 2010. It brings with it a wave of exciting technologies - the Exmor R sensor, the Mobile Bravia Engine - it hits the right numbers too - 4.2 inches, Android...

Looks great, lightweight, good camera performance, screen viewing angles are fantastic, relatively fast and stable in day-to-day operation

Screen is a little yellow, camera and video software could be better, back key location had us hitting on-screen buttons

So where does that leave the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc? It’s leagues ahead of the Xperia X10, there is no question about that. But there is also a feeling that an upgrade to the software would make it into a fantastic phone, rather than one that is just...

First Look: Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

 

To say that Sony Ericsson had a tough year in 2010 would be an understatement. We slammed the Xperia X10 which was supposed to be their flagship device, we then went on to question the X10 mini and X10 mini pro , although they weren't without some...

Display, design, camera looks to offer great performance

Some might find it too plasticy

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc review

 

Can Android 2.3 and a super-slim new body salvage Sony Ericsson's Android ambitions?

Astonishingly thin body ; Attractive user interface tweaks ; Nice customisable floating dock ; Single-core processor handles most tasks well ; Decent battery life ; Stunning screen

Small, fiddly power and volume buttons ; Timescape widget is rather ugly ; Text entry system is a bit last generation ; Only five home screens

Update: You can now check out thoughts on the upgrade to this phone in our Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S review.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc review

 

At first glance it certainly looks like the Arc has the potential and meets all criteria to rise straight to the top of the Android smartphones pecking order. Let's look at whether the Arc lives up to its potential.

It's too early to make a judgement on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, which is expected to launch in Q1 of this year, but signs are promising - it looks beautiful and comes with Google Android 2.3 'Gingerbread'. Watch this space.

Sony Ericsson Xperia arc review

 

Subtle and practical improvements to Android, a decent camera and a large, colourful screen make the arc tempting, but it may soon find itself outpaced by dual-core models.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Review

 

Sony Ericsson had some serious catching up to do with the Android crowd after their quite frankly pants X10. What was a nice looking phone was marred by an irritatingly slow, over-skinned version of Android.…
