Guest's review of Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S

“Great phone, could have more RAM and onboard memory...”

Written on: 30/11/2012

I'll keep it short, great phone but it could do with more of both kinds of memory. It only has 1GB of onboard storage, but the usable memory is only about 300MB (The rest is used by the phone's software). As a lot of apps can't be installed on a MicroSD card, only the onboard memory, this soon eats up what little there is. Also with only 512MB of RAM, this phone has to be restarted every day otherwise it slows down quickly.


Also, it can only have about five internet tabs open at a time or it will crash to the home screen.

WiFi has a problem that it won't connect unless the phone is connected to a mobile network, not sure if this is an Android thing or this phone's software - hasn't changed upon upgrading to Android 4 or rooting.

Great screen though, iPlayer at high res looks great.

Very watchable on the small screen. Sound is okay from the speakers, good battery life when listening to music as well. Camera is great in bright light, and okay in darker rooms.
