Sony Xperia Arc Feedback
- Sony Xperia Arc is a perfect multimedia companion. Multimedia capabilities are brilliant.
- The phone’s Exmor R camera sensor really adds a lot to the camera. The phone delivers excellent quality pictures even under low light conditions.
- The Xperia Arc screen is almost perfectly black when the backlight is off which also adds a lot to its really stunning looks. The visual improvements added by the mobile Bravia engine are also credible.
- The Xperia Arc seems a lot better than its X10 series predecessors when it comes to ease of use of software. Software seems perfect.
- Sony’s UI seems pretty and resource hogging but even then the Xperia Arc never loses any stability.
Sony Xperia Arc Issues
- The shutter key is mysteriously placed on the exact opposite edge of the place where we naturally have the shutter keys in digital cameras.
- The phone has a single core processor; by investing a few more bucks you could easily get a dual core processor phone with performance at par with this phone.
- No secondary front camera present
