Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S
|| Review: October 2011
In a nutshell: The Sony Ericsson
Arc S is the best Sony Ericsson we've seen, and is one of the
top Android phones for 2011. With an upgraded 1.4GHz single-core
processor, the latest Android 2.3.4 operating system plus Sony
Ericsson's Timescape user interface and a 4.2 inch high resolution
touchscreen with Bravia engine, this is a wonderfully responsive
and intuitive phone to use. It's also got fabulous music and
video playback capabilities, an outstanding 8 megapixel camera,
HD video recording and GPS with Google Maps. Did we mention
that it's probably also the most beautiful-looking phone currently
Adjectives like beautiful and graceful aren't ones that are commonly
applied to Android phones. Yet they capture perfectly the slimline curves
of the Arc S. It's quite possibly the most gorgeous smartphone currently
available. Physically, it's almost identical to the Xperia
Arc, which we reviewed back in March and described as quite possibly
Sony Ericsson's best phone ever and one of the very best phones to be
released in 2011. And it still is. Except that now the Arc S is probably
the best Sony Ericsson phone ever.
We can't get enough of the looks of the Arc S. But it's the way it
feels too, with that impossibly slim middle that sits perfectly in the
hand. We love the 4.2 inch touchscreen as well. Sony's Reality Display
with Bravia engine and 854x480 high resolution screen make it one of
the best displays on any phone. It's second best only to the likes of
the Samsung Galaxy S2 or the iPhone
4S in terms of clarity and the way images simply jump out at you.
4.2 inches is huge, and the touchscreen responds beautifully when you
glide your finger across the screen or touch it lightly.
The operating system is the very latest Android 2.3.4 combined with
Sony Ericsson's user interface tweaks, which offer more customisation
and useful features than ever before. Facebook and twitter integration
with contacts and messaging plus over 150,000 apps available to download
from Android Market put it on a par with the iPhone.
The original Arc was a fast phone, and the Arc S is even faster with
an uprated 1.4GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. It's debatable whether
the uprated processor makes any noticeable difference, but hey, we're
not complaining. One thing that does irritate though is the fact that
while 1GB of internal memory is provided, most of this is eaten up the
system, leaving just 320MB for the user. We would have liked more. But
you can add up to 32GB of memory with a microSD memory card.
The Arc S isn't just a good looker. It sounds good too. Audio quality
is excellent, both when speaking on the phone and when listening to
music. A built-in noise shield uses a secondary microphone to filter
out the sounds around you. And we found signal strength and reception
to be strong too. The Sony Ericsson music player is excellent, offering
all the features you could want, including smart playlists, shuffle,
album art, and even the ability to identify songs using TrackID. There's
an FM radio with RDS, and the 3.5mm headphone jack lets you plug in
your own favourite brand of headphones. The sound quality is outstanding,
and is even enjoyable without a headset. Sony's xLOUD engine filters
the sound for maximum bass.
It's just as good, if not better, when we turn our attention to photography.
The camera is the same as on the original Arc, and when it comes to
still photography, it's a top performer. With an 8 megapixel sensor,
Sony's Exmor R technology, a wide f2.4 aperture to let in plenty of
light, plus a host of gadgetry - autofocus, image stabilisation, face
recognition, etc - it's got all the necessary ingredients to take brilliant
photos and it doesn't disappoint. It's fast too, both at finding the
focus and recording the image. Is it as good as a dedicated digital
camera? Nearly. It can also record video at 720p HD resolution. Video
quality is very good, but not outstanding. There are better mobiles
that can record 1080p Full HD video, but the Arc S isn't very far behind.
We should also mention the 3D sweep panorama feature, which builds a
wide composite panorama when you pan the camera horizontally. If you
have a 3D TV you can even generate a 3D panorama for display on the
The 4.2 inch Bravia display is perfect for web browsing, watching youtube
videos and keeping up with facebook. The Arc S performs all of these
functions brilliantly. The WebKit web browser is very fast at downloading
and rendering web pages, including support for flash video, and you
can easily pan and zoom around the pages with the lightest of touches.
The WiFi connection is superfast, and even the 3D HSPA can deliver very
fast downloads if you live in a good coverage area.
We also love using Google Maps on such a big screen, and of course
the Arc S has the very latest version, with Street View and Google Latitude.
The GPS receiver is fast and accurate. And of course you can use your
position to geotag photos or to broadcast your whereabouts on facebook.
Connectivity is outstanding. In addition to WiFi, 3G and the headphone
socket, you'll find sockets for USB and HDMI, as well as ANT+ for connecting
to compatible health and fitness products.
Battery life is rarely very good on modern smartphones, especially
slim ones like the Arc S. The Arc S seems to have marginally better
battery performance than the original Arc, and should get you through
a full day of heavy use. Most users will probably be charging every
The Arc S is Sony Ericsson's best phone and is up there with the top
Android handsets. It may not be dual core, but it's a match for the
top smartphones in most other respects, and is in a class of its own
when it comes to looks. When you consider that you can get the Arc S
for free for a little over £20 a month on contract, it's a phone
that in our opinion over-delivers by a mile.
Features of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S include:
- 8.1 megapixel camera with 16x digital zoom, touch autofocus, face
recognition, smile detection, red-eye reduction, image stabiliser
and LED flash
- HD video camera with video stabilisation and video light

I bought this phone on a deal about 6 months ago for £199 because I
was tight and didn't want to spend a fortune on a top end Samsung or
IPhone. It looks the business (I think its one of the best looking phones
there is) and it has a wonderful, large display.
However after 6 months of usage my main annoyance with this phone is
the battery life. I unplugged the phone from the charger at 9am the
other morning. I got on the train to london (a 2 hour journey), spent
probably no more than half an hour looking at web pages etc, made a
5 minute phone call and used the GPS map for about 5 minutes when I
was in London. I then did perhaps another half hour on the train back
By the time I was back (about 6pm), the battery was down to about 10%.
The battery really lets this phone down. If you are in the position
to charge it regularly and don't have to rely on it for the majority
of the day, great. If not, I wouldn't buy this phone. Frustrating!

That is a bad battery life! I deleted any apps plus I did not want and
made sure nothing is running. ICS helps and turning off wifi, bluetooth,
and data helps a lot. I turned the screen brightness down, as this is
the biggest drain on the battery. I average 70% battery remaining after
player music, surfing, playing games and texting, with occasional use
of google maps. Not forgetting the odd phone calls. When data is off
this stops some apps transmitting which can be good. Take a tip from
above and you should see an improvement. I have used app killers but
removed them. IceCreamSandwich works well in managing the apps. Under
GingerBread battery management was not good.

Had mine about 3 weeks now and still getting enjoyment from using. Being
used to a SE w995 it was a big change at my age (65) but with a little
patience I found most things quite easy to master.
Cracking photos and videos not bad either.
The power on button I found a bit small and fiddly but a rubber case
which has raised over buttons soon solved this.
Battery life not brilliant but I was aware of this before buying and
I'm led to believe this is the norm on this type phone.
Enjoying that much just upgraded my internet allowance to all you can
The wife is also so impressed she also looking to upgrade at her contract
All in all very pleased

Got this for less than £180 a month ago as an upgrade on pay & go. I
wanted to sample Android and had looked at a few phones. The large high
res screen is a bonus the largest for the money. I have taylored the
home screens and loaded similar or better apps to that on my faithfull
Nokia 5800. Typing on this large screen is fine in portrait mode. If
I went for the Xperia Ray, would have to use lanscape mode.
The phone calls are clear and the noise reduction system works well.
The wifi works well and I have connected to 'The Cloud'. There is one
gripe with Android smart phones - battery life! I have used an app killer
and set the brightness to low. There is a brightness button to go to
a preset brightness if needed. The signal traffic, wifi and gps is set
to off until I require them. I can get more than a days use and have
60% remaining, depending on use. The next isue is the mp3 player sounds
nice but the preset equaliser limits the adjustment. My previous SE
walkman phone are better. I download an EQ app that improves this. The
is a trick to download the Xperia S player on to the Arc S. I may look
at this mod in the future or Sony may make it a firmware upgrade.
The camera is slow to startup, but when i hold the camera button, it
seem to start faster - 2 seconds! Pictures seem fine, about the same
as my SE W995.
Overall this is a good phone and the flat shape makes it pocketable.

Just to update on my first review, I upgraded to Android 4 - IceCreamSandwich.
This phone works well with the update, as ICS has better features that
help with battery management. I have un-installed Advanced Task Killer
as it is no longer needed. If you like to take screen shots, the feature
used to be accessed by holding the power button until a menu appeared.
Now under ICS press and hold the power and volume down button together,
to take an instant screen shot. Basically a lot of the features have
been improved, added or moved around under ICS. The camera can be turned
on from standby saving time, much quicker. The Arc S has been very stable
under both Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and Android 4 ICS with no reliability
issues. It has never crashed or turned off, and all calls have been
fine. With careful management of the apps this is good phone.

Hi, I'd like to update my original post (14th Feb 2012) to four stars.
I fixed the Wifi problem by using two apps Wifi Fixer, FXR Wifi fix
and rescue (and some messing with my router). I'm not sure which of
them sorted it but I think it was the FXR Wifi fix and rescue app that
resolved the problem. I sometimes need to reboot my wifi router to get
the connection to work, but rarely enough. I'm now mysteriously having
the phone either power off or going into emergency calls only mode -which
means I can't receive texts or calls. I simply switch it back on or
put in the PIN as appropriate, but it did cause hassle for me yesterday
when someone had been trying to ring and text me and couldn't get hold
of me (I'm not in the habit of checking my phone just to see if it is
turned on or has gone to emergency mode). It's still a mystery but hopefully
I can find a solution.

having had this phone for about a month now i feel confident in writing
a brief review. firstly i have had no issues with battery life. realistically
most smart phones will need charging every day. after a heavy day of
use ie apps emails gaming and texting and calling lasted fine. the phone
is very light and slim which is a bonus. the display is pretty good.
not on par with samsung galaxy s2 but not that far apart. camera and
video playback pretty good. no issues with wifi as some people have
stated. call quality is pretty good and the connection time on the internet
is acceptable. on par with my i phone 4 anyway. all in all a good phone
and cheap to from phones 4 u on pay as you go.

I had this phone for three months before replacing it with a iphone
4s. Before i purchased this phone I had a iphone 4, I had heard lots
of good things about android phones so thought I would make the switch.
First impressions was ok, but as I used the phone more I found lots
of problems which in the end forced me back to apple . The first problem
I encountered was the battery life now dont get me wrong the battery
life on the iphone 4 isnt great but on the arc s its ridiculous , I
could get threw a day of heavy use on the iphone 4 on the arc s i struggled
to make 12 hours, the second problem i found was the applications on
android seem to have a mind of there own i would have apps opening up
on there own that i havent even used I would then shut them down again
to find they had opened up again which was frustrating, It wouldnt have
been a massive problem if the arc s had a lot of ram but it dosent,
which meant if u had downloaded lots of apps from the market place and
they was open which they always was coz the phone had a mind of its
own, it would make the arc s painfully slow to use. The third was the
camera yes its 8 megapixels and yes it records in hd but by the time
you have managed to open it up which felt like forever the moment u
was trying to capture had gone ! Having said that its not a really bad
phone it does nearly everything an iphone does but a lot slower and
dosent quite have the same feel of quality, if you dont mind a cheaper
alternative then this isnt a bad choice but if your use to an iphone
then stay away

concerned about). OS and camera are excellent (though I haven't managed
to fully figure out the 3D photos. It has had a few problems with forgetting
my home wifi - simply enter the password and is ready to go again. Battery
life is ok - I just charge it every night.

This is happening to my phone too. I've had mine about 6 weeks and this

annoying as if i need to press another key to get to the department
i'm calling i can't. Also it's using credit up as i cannot end a call

I got this because my older android 3.25" handset screen was becoming
more difficult to read as my eyes deteriorate (40+). I largely agree
with the editors review. Some annoying omissions in my view though.
I miss HTC intelligent dialling (ie: contact or number - it figures
it). The contacts, duplicates and links to FB seem to be more fiddly,
and it seems to add everything to my contacts (ie: numbers, email etc)
and I cannot seem to turn this off. The clock/weather app not as good
as htc. minor things really and I have no regrets about buying it but
as a perfect phone, I'd combine this handset with HTC's version of Android

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S.... LOVE IT! Most people are going for Samsung's

because of Exmor R 8mp camera, 4.2 inch Bravia display, 1.4GHz processor,
HDMI & the fact that its the best looking phone on market in the whole
world! - And I chose the Xperia Arc S because I always feel they are
better built & always better looking then any other mobile phone maker.
I would always chose Sony Ericsson over any other brand any day. (can't
wait to see what Sony does once it takes over Ericsson). The phone restarts
now (after having it for 4 months) once or twice a day but I don't really
care as I can wait for it to restart and can never imagine letting go
of this phone over any other phone... even if its an iPhone 4S! I just
hope Sony Ericsson (or Sony) will start putting OLED screens on their
phones soon, putting bigger built in memory as well and also a 16mp
Exmor R camera... which Sony already has/makes to make even better phones.

I've had the SE Arc S for 4 months now, after "upgrading" from an HTC
desire. While the screen is better, and the internet is slightly faster
at loading (about half a second) pretty much everything else is either
the same or worse. Returning from the internet to the homescreen is
very laggy with the phone taking time to load, the camera takes ages
to launch so forget any quick snaps, it's actually quite embarrassing
taking photos of my friends, asking them all to "hang on a minute" while
it loads. I also cannot pick up WIFI in areas that I used to on my old
Desire. It's now starting to lag on different apps. Personally after
4 months of owning this phone, I would not recommend it, buy something

After the debacle over my BlackBerry 9780 (as per my review), I now

processor speed makes everything a breeze, and whereas it does not have
the battery capacity of other phones, it comes with all the widgets
you need (on the second home screen) to control WiFi, Bluetooth and
data usage, so I now get around 2-3 days after conditioning the battery.
I really like the fact that it comes with Swype and a "traditional T9"
phone keyboard as standard (Android 2.3.4). A friend sent me a comedy
clip on YouTube via e-mail, and it opened up instantly and played via
the fabulous screen. It is also a very attractive phone as this review
site correctly states. After connecting to my WiFi router at home, it
automatically defaults to this when at home so no data charges for e-mail
