The coming of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is a straightforward testimony of the speedy revolution of the Android World. With the first Xperia Arc launched April in 2011, an upgrade was already on the works after six months. The time to sell your used smartphone is nigh!
It is not as if the Xperia Arc S is a refreshing innovation of the latest Sony Ericsson smartphone lines. The word ‘Upgrade’ is apt as there are only two new features in the phone that was not on its predecessor: the faster 1.4GHz single-core processor and the latest Android 2.3.4 update of the famous Google-spawned OS paired with Sony Ericsson’s signature user interface topography.
Then again, the software update is purportedly slated to be available as an upgrade for the original Xperia Arc; which leaves us to the conclusion that the only new thing about the Arc S is the faster processor.
But we’ll pick up from there. Let’s get to the profile of the Xperia Arc S. Noticeable is the same extra-large, 4,2-inch Bravia Engine Reality Display found on the original Arc. But this is by no means a flaw in character. As a matter of fact, this kind of display is one of the brightest, sharpest, finest, and most responsive touchscreens available today.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S highlights the screen that runs at a resolution of 854 x 480. It has been scrunched to a surprisingly thin, hyped-up chassis, which is thinner around its waist and somewhat fatter at the ends. This is a real bonus for a user who thinks that his phone is incredibly thin when held by the hand. The design is very innovative.
But no matter how ingenious the conventional style of the first Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, there are still some measly setbacks. Take for example the very little tiny power button that seems to be hidden on the top corner of the phone. Naturally, it is so recessed that it can be hard to find. And Arc S clearly resolves that issue: By making the Arc S’s power button a little bit jutting- therefore making it easier to find- people will certainly have no qualms about it anymore.
Generally, the smartphone is rather identical to its ancestor- the first Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. The back still sports the traditional camera sensor, secondary noise-cancelling microphone, LED flash and its white palette, mottled enamel look only adds to its sophisticated aura.
Meanwhile, the right side of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S shelters a USB connector and a teeny-weeny volume up/down rocker and at the bottom sits the camera shutter button.
If you are waiting for my recommendation of this phone, you will surely get it. Yes! Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is a really good buy. But before you do that you may want to sell your used smartphone to a recycling company like Cash for Smartphones?
Do it now before Sony releases a new model!
