Re: Your first impressions about Xperia arc

Honestly I think this is what the X10 should've been all along, but that's my bias opinion.

It's a great phone, it might lack front facing camera, dualcore processor, but the rest of the hardware seems quite impressive :smileyhappy: too bad it's going to be so expensive

Re: Your first impressions about Xperia arc

One word to describe it - beautiful!

The design to me sets it apart from its competitors, it's why I chose my X10 over the HTC.  It makes other phones look a bit boring and generic in looks,

The only thing that's missing.... well that would be my hand holding it :smileywink:

Re: Your first impressions about Xperia arc

Yeah but does the lack of current hardware features and out dated chipset make it worth it?

Looks can be decieving.

Re: Your first impressions about Xperia arc

I agree.. This was on the top of my 2011's "Things to collect"... until I saw the fate of my x2, x10, x10 minipro and x8.  Sigh, I fell in love with that device and was eager to buy it.. I even subscribe to SE to notify me so I don't need to fall in line when I purchase this beauty.

Sigh... I love it but part of me is holding me back..

Re: Your first impressions about Xperia arc

Design wise.. SE is good.  I really love your elegant design.  The first phone I want from SE was x1 but waited for another two years as I'm eyeing for x2.  After couple of months, I saw x10 and fell inlove with it, so on and so forth...  Now please don't make me fall in love with this device.. please.. I had enough!!!! :smileylaugh:

What I feel missing is your dedication to your customer.. That's what we want.. At least be considerate with people who trusted your company for a long time and even spent money to be one of lucky owner / collector of xperia.

Re: Your first impressions about Xperia arc

I wish the back/home/menu buttons weren't chrome, I think the phone would look better, and the LED in between the keys is quite inconvinient when you are trying to do something in a dark setting (refering to the X10 I don't know if the arc does/has the same LED behind/inbetween the hard buttons). other than that the phone looks great

Actually on that note... why have they re-arranged the buttons.  Anyone coming from the X10's or X8 will have an annoying few days getting used to it!

Re: Your first impressions about Xperia arc

yeah I still don't understand the sudden change and adding an extra button, some people might like it, I rather have more gestures to avoid having an extra button to do something similar or the same
