5 out of 5 eggsShe is now my baby

Pros: -Small
-Light
-Thin
-Powerful (considering its specs)
-Fast
-Very comfortable ergonomics
-Camera
-Brightness

Cons: -Limiting specs (compared to modern 2012 phones)

Other Thoughts: After owning this phone for a good two years, I really have fallen in love with it. I absolutely love the feel of this phone; it fits great in my hand, and is light and comfortable. The screen is bright and the camera takes pretty decent pictures in good light. Very smooth functioning phone.

Some may be turned off by the processor and RAM, but I have found my phone to function perfectly fast for my expectations. Apps run perfect, and surfing the web is much faster than I would have thought coming from this phone.

*********************************

Modders-

This phone is VERY root/unlock friendly. Very easy to unlock bootloader, root, install custom ROMS, and personalize. With stock 2.3.4 ROM, rooted, I get at least two or three days of battery. Keep this in mind! I really do love this phone

5 out of 5 eggsOne decision I'll never regret: Buying the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc !

Pros: 1) Unique design, definitely a standout from the crowds.

2) 4.2" screen with great resolution (both indoor and outdoor); perfect screen size in my opinion: less strains to your eyes, more room to type and still fits your pockets.

3) Pre-installed with a screen protector and an 8GB memory card (courtesy of Sony Ericsson)

4) Speaker is pretty good.

5) Camera is perhaps the best one among other smartphones, only pale in comparison with the N8.

6) Very light. (Made out of plastic, but it doesn't feel cheap at all)

7) So far, I haven't experienced any software-related problems (e.g: freezing problems, restart problems, connectivity..etc)

8) Ice Cream Sandwich update will be provided by Sony Ericsson in between late Q1 and early Q2 of 2012.

9) Budget-friendly smartphone.

Cons: 1) Power and volume buttons are quite small. I bought a case from another website, and let just say these buttons are even harder to press after putting the case on.

2) Screen is not made out of Gorilla Glass.

3) Battery is a little disappointed. Based on my experience, I left my phone on standby for 11 hours and it was down to 80%.

4) No front-face camera

6) Single core

Other Thoughts: . This device (LT15A) is compatible with AT&T 3G network, but only EDGE if you're using T-Mobile USA.

. Overall, the Xperia Arc is a well-built smartphone for a very reasonable price tag. Sure, the Arc might fell short in term of features on paper when compare with other high-end premium smartphones, but it still an excellent choice for any price-conscious buyers.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Phone BUT missing items in the BOX (not newegg's fault)

Pros: light, thin, arc style, the rest TBD

Cons: No micro HDMI cable, No Screen Protector, No Sony Ericsson Leather Pouch

Other Thoughts: I dont get why phones that are sold for the US have missing items in the box. i've seen unboxing videos for the Xperia arc in europe/asia and those people receive a SONY micro HDMI cable, a leather pouch, and a screen protector.... They always have to screw people over in America... it's like you got the phone for free and they can't give you all the products like others around the world. Now you have to buy everything that's missing online and spend at least 15$... The HDMI cable, pouch, and screen protector are put in the box by SE... but of course for america they probably get orders on not to put certain items in there because they want people here to get ripped off on all aspects.. SE is the best brand but the missing items really tone it down...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat phone

Pros: Android
Good looking phone
Light weight
Slim form factor
works great as wi-fi hotspot when tethering to 3G

Cons: Screen is difficult to see in bright sunlight

Other Thoughts: I'm really happy with this phone. My phone came with Android 2.3.3 but an upgrade to 2.3.4 was available for download. I get comments from people all the time about how slick this phone looks compared to the Iphone.

4 out of 5 eggsAwsome Smartphone!

Pros: I just recently got this phone because I needed an upgrade from my old Samsung BlackJack II and Wow, what a difference! This phone has awsome features, a bright and colorful screen, fast processor, superb camera quality, and best of all.. all the free apps from Android market! It only has a few slight flaws but it is definitely up to par with the Iphone 4 if you're looking for an alternative to the Iphone.

Pros:
- Nice and lightweight with sleek and slim design
- Colorful and vivid with a huge screen
- Fast processor with good ram and plenty of memory
- Camera takes AMAZING photos and video in high resolution, even in night time video mode
- Plenty of apps on the android market

Cons: There are only a few setbacks with the phone and that's why i only gave it 4 eggs, it's still a great phone nonetheless!

Cons:
- Lack of front facing camera, those who wants to use Skype on their phone will be dissapointed
- Price is a little steep for a phone that doesn't have a front camera
- Back plastic cover seems kind of flimsy and cheap
- Battery life isn't the greatest, it's still addiquate for everyday use but you'll have to charge often if you're a Facebook addict like me

Other Thoughts: With all being said and done, I still think that this is an awsome phone with very few flaws. The addition of a front facing camera and improved battery life will definitely make this phone a better contender with the Iphone. If you're in the market for an Android phone, you should definitely but this phone on top of your list! :)

5 out of 5 eggssuper nice...i like it...

Pros: i was thinking to get a new phone to replace my old 3G iphone...HTC sensation & Samsung Galaxy s2 was my choices...however they just looks so ugly and i changed my mind even they have better hardware & features~
the reason why i chose Xperia Arc because it has very owesome outlook.....light weight.....slim.....and nice 4.2 inches screen with sony bravia image tech which makes the screen looks more better than the other TFT Mons...
and the GPU not bad either....1GHZ.....fast enough to run big aps and game...
the phone works so nice to me and i love it....the price here is also better than the other places & sites..
When i bought it...the verison is the latest 2.3.3 android gingerbread...everything got upgraded to the top..you dont have to do any upgrade by yourself..
one thing that i wasnt happy because the site doesnt tell you the phone comes with accessories or not...[after i contacted newegg agent and checked the info from sony ericsson site,,it should]
actually it does comes w

Cons: Totally like it.....
if you like slim...cool...owesom..outstanding outlook..get it...
it is decent and the hardware also good...... you can actually show it to your friends when they tell you they using new ugly htc phones or samsung phones..lolx

5 out of 5 eggsso far so good~

Pros: i was thinking to get a new phone to replace my old 3G iphone...and i thought about the samsung galaxy s2 and the htc sensation~~
however even their hareware is a bit better....the outlook is so ugly~~so i finally found one that looks very nice and with not bad hardware ~that's this Xperia Arc..
i just got it like 2 days ago~and i am happy with it~it is so slim and owesom~it comes with 2.3.3 gingerbread android~~u dont have to upgrade actually`
one thing i just want to tell you guys is the phone comes with accesories [as there are no accessoris showing in the site 's pictures~i was afraid that i bought the phone only]~newegg should provide this information ~after i called one of their agent..they didnt able to answer my question["does it comes with accessoris"?]~
the phone works totally good.....just 1 thing to mention`that the battery isnt good enough~~if you decide to buy this phone u must learn how to save the power like turn off the wifi & bluetooth when u dont use them etc~

Cons: Also ~the phone has some sort of save power function ~~like when your phone almost run out of power...you can not open the media folder or start the camera....

Other Thoughts: this phone very pretty and slim`works great with 1 GHZ GPU
i am sure you can show it off to some of your friends when they tell you they have the ugly htcs monsters etc...
