Sony Ericsson Xperia arc S Reviews

90/100

"For owners and fans of the original Xperia Arc, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is way too similar to the original phone to recommend upgrading to. But the software updates are useful and the processor boost a welcome if mostly undetectable enhancement, making this upgraded Xperia Arc a very good buy for anyone after a sleek, high-performance smartphone." 4.5/5 stars

80/100

"The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc S is basically the XPERIA Arc with a faster processor, slightly upgraded software and an 'S' tagged onto the end of its name. It remains a good phone but its plagued by the same issues as its predecessor: that being disappointing build quality." 4/5 stars

"It's the combination of the excellent screen, Bravia Engine and HDMI cable that sets the Arc S apart, and we imagine that it will appeal to lovers of film, music videos and other visual media." 8/10

"Most of our complaints with the Xperia Arc S are fairly petty. The big picture view is that it is a good phone, with a sleek and distinctive design (even if it is a fingerprint magnet), an above-average screen and camera, and some nice extras like a micro-HDMI output and an 8GB microSD card."

"The front face of the Arc S is dominated by its 4.2-inch, 854-by-480-pixel resolution LCD screen. Even though it's not a fancy HD screen now available in a few premium smartphones, image quality was excellent." 3.5/5 stars

"The Arc S belies its single core processor with snappy performance, and the UI design complements this by looking good."
