The Xperia arc S retains the sleek arch design of its predecessor and measures less than nine millimeters; at its thinnest point in the middle of the housing There are still ultra thin 11 mm at the top and bottom end. Its curved design gives the Smartphone special flair, it is balanced and comfortable to hold thanks to rounded edges, feels as a whole but not quite so high. This is because that no aluminium components are installed, but the complete Cabinet is made of plastic – hence the low weight of 116 grams.

But of the individual body parts, fit together cleanly and smoothly; the processing is the overall impression, positively conscientiously and solid. Putting but moderate pressure on the Smartphone, are quick to hear squeaking and creaking sounds. One iPhone, HTC sensation or Samsung Galaxy S II a candle outside thus not the Xperia arc S, it is also less expensive with a price of 429 euros.

Top level performance

Which doesn’t mean that it’s back in terms of facilities – on the contrary: with its fast 1.4 GHz single core processor is the Xperia arc S in the fast lane on the road and pulls of most competitors in particular when surfing the Web. Also the touch screen responds very precisely to commands and this translates immediately – whether simple input or even multi touch gestures.

The screen s anyway is one of the strengths of the arc From left bottom right above it measures 4.2 inches, what ensures ample overview on Web pages as well as submenus. The display resolution of 854 x 480 pixels while marked not the tip in the Smartphone world, lies but higher than the standard 800 x 480 pixels of most models. Also the rich colors and high viewing angle stability of indicating liked very much.

3-D images and Timescape

The 3-D sweep panorama is one of the new features. The arc of S has only a camera lens on the back, but can still take 3-D pictures. The function is activated, a help Wizard displays how the Smartphone to pan is for the recording to be successful. Look at the image, you must connect the arc then S with a 3-D television via the HDMI interface. The spatial effect actually works, the pictures are not really sharp.

Quite different in 2-D mode, succeed in really great pictures. Since the 8.1-megapixel lens with an Exmor-R sensor Sony is equipped, decent shots; succeed even under unfavourable light conditions Records on videos in HD 720 p.

As the operating system is Android the version 2.3.4 installed gingerbread; in the Timescape UI of the manufacturer, where the same application is deeply integrated in the user interface is located. Timescape brings together the latest news from Facebook, Twitter, email and SMS mailbox in a channel. Also main menu and home screen has visually missed an own touch Sony Ericsson and it extends the standard software features of Android with smaller allowances such as the Wisepilot and let’s golf.

Consistently successful reissue

The new S in the laboratory can round out the positive impression: acoustic and radio properties have improved compared to its predecessor, the endurance is still on a good level.

Clearly: The new edition of the Xperia arc succeeded in Sony Ericsson. S stands for speed, and the arc S really has power under the hood. The computing power the screen is exemplary, beautifully hot, housing elegant and reasonable price for a device of this class.
