5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice fast android. I was able to unlock the bootloader free through Sony Mobile. Running custom Rom, CM9, saves battery, I get over 2 days. OC to 1.6 Ghz smooths games out and enhances video recording. Great sound w/ 32G sd cap. I use Red Pocket Mobile, have to dig around the old google to find the mms settings though. Form factor is very nice, slim and 'arc'ed. HDMI was nice until I swapped Kernels and lost it.

Cons: If it has a hdmi port, why not send an hdmi cable with it.

5 out of 5 eggsSony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

Pros: So Far, love the phone. It's easy to use. It was easy to switch over. I came from an Xperia X10. It died. After the upgrade to software on it, it was never the same. My wireless carrier insurance had NOTHING similar to it in quality. I found this on newegg.com. Best price was here and great service. I really have enjoyed it. I've shot 3D video, and the still camera is great. I love it so far!!

Cons: na

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Phone

Pros: I love the design and features on the phone. Everything was as advertised.

Cons: This will only get the Edge on tmobile which is very sad considering all it can do. I tried connecting to the wifi and using that however it would not allow me to get internet access while on wifi meaning I was unable to do anything at all.
