Iphone/4 has so many accesories, why cant htc/se/lg/google do that? make a phone that is media firendly. iphone has the cool desgin for everything if i should use my android phone in some multimedia audio i would have to get a ugly cord and use, the iphone has a nice special made stand. (the only advantage of having their contact in the bottom) but it gives it so many posibilities

Andy: why the face! just order that baby! (or are they able to change it closer to realease date? )

Thank you but I was looking for a detailed answer of why any of the CPU is better. What Google Nexus S hardware can do for Nexus S that SE Arc CPU cannot do for Arc. That's what I wanted to know

Appreciate



As mentioned earlier the Samsung Hummingbird processor is a wee bit better than the MSM 8255 CPU. Especially with regards to gaming and video performance. The hummingbird processor can decode 1080p files (Galaxy Tab which runs hummingbird can play 1080p files smoothly) whereas MSM8255 cannot do it (720p max)
No difference in day to day use, but if you put the CPU to maximum use, then hummingbird will perform slightly better than MSM8255.


I still think the Arcs CPU anfd GPU are more powerful then the Hummingbird, may have to do some more googling but I'm pretty sure it's better, it's a newer design.

Then why Satio had this function?

We're discussing Arc here, not cameras or HTCs.

Exmor R really does brighten up night shots, from my experience with Sony wx-1.

I think SE has to make the availability of Xperia Arc sooner than April, 2011. By that time, a lot of new and better products will have been announced totally outshining Xperia Arc. The likes of Samsung GS2, LG Optimus 3D and the list goes on. Plus, Motorola Atrix 4G will be released next month. Spec wise, we all know the Atrix has the upperhand so it will surely affect the sales of Arc. If the Xperia Arc had dual-core processor, then it would have been ok. But sadly, single core processor is all we are getting. The best solution, I think, is to release Xperia Arc at the same time as the Motorola Atrix, next month.

I say bring the price down of the Arc and make it a higher mid-range solution. Then they should come out with an Arc 2, with a metallic body, a dual-core proccy, qHD OLED/IPS display.

Posted by NightBlade
I don't really think most consumers care whether the processor in their phone is single or dual-core.

Heck, I don't even care.

What? only 2 cores? Why not go for the 4 core ARM9 processor and 4 core PowerVR graphics from the PSP2?

NGP is Sony, xperia is Sony Ericsson no comparison possible between these two. I must ad that Sony had already helped Sony Ericsson with Exmor, Cyber-Shot, Bravia and Walkman. Now it's Ericsson's turn with dualcore and LTE.

Why ? AFAIK this is cheaper than arc...

and I think that most peoples wont even know that the X2 is dual core and can do FullHD ( or will not care about that ) speically when they just see the arc

Because the Optimus 2x pricing makes Arc overpriced for what it offers (except for design of course)

This when every one knows the spec of the phone he want to buy...

most peoples will ask simple questions... and yes arc can do this !!

I assume Arc has a notification led (email, SMS, battery) like the X10.

Posted by 10123
The Arc posses many marketing trumps that the LG phones don't have, these are by in large quite gimmicky but will still be ate up by the public. For example

- Worlds slimmest Smartphone
- Bravia Reality Display
- Exmor R sensor (to a lesser extent)

They all sound fancy and will draw the consumer in. Stating Dual core Snapdragon processor all sounds too technical and actually won't really benefit the end user because most (including me) won't be able to tell the difference on every day tasks, you can only make a phone so fast when browsing menu's etc.

Well heres photos taken by a HTC Desire HD and also theres video in there as well. Hardly looks shit to me





For me...it's far from ARC...and even from X10, it has a lot of artifacts everywhere and less detail too, click to see the image at 100%.

From GSMArena:
there are some visible artifacts resulting from the aggressive sharpening stage (oversharpened noise).

Even without the lens issues, the Desire HD camera wouldn’t rank among the top 8MP Android shooters (or 8MP cameras in general).

Unimpressive HD video

Autofocus works here too, but only before you start shooting – then the focus is locked and won’t change even if you get closer or move back. Still, the Desire HD had no problems focusing at even very close distances.

The reality of image quality however is hardly flattering. The videos are recorded as 3GP files (not the best option) and the results are actually slightly worse than what the Desire Z put up.

There are noise and compression artifacts visible (especially in the sky) and what seems to be the fingerprints of image interpolation. The frame rate wasn’t smooth either – there’s a noticeable stutter.

The reality is much less impressive than the specs look on paper – we were rather disappointed.

Posted by rickster2kuk
Yes, X10 has pretty good noise reduction.

The GSM Arena samples definitely show the colour cast is better on the Arc than the X10 - more natural.
