You sound very unhappy with your Arc S, Mode, sad SE skimped on Memory chips as other than that the Arc S is realy good.

Finally got my Live and I love it!!! It's the perfect size phone/screen for me.
Same box contents as everyone else, except I put in a 32gb card. Battery life seems not so great though, anyone know what I can do to improve it? I have a live wallpaper running, plus it's connected to wifi the majority of the day. I've lowered the screen brightness a lot though....

I've found that the live wallpaper is the biggest drain on the battery, although the WiFi won't help either.

Happy New year!
Well there's THIS.

A couple questions:
Is there anyway to sort playlist by artist like on non-touch phones?
Another thing is when playing music, everytime the screen goes off, u have to unlock to change track. Is there a way around this? [You can't even use volume keys like A2 phones] I'm using double twist for now which has its own lock screen with player controls....

Loving my LWW. The only thing that bothers me is it's battery life.

Got one of these before they vanish forever today for £99 on Three network. I was surprised to find it's alot better than I expected. Solid build too really speedy handset with great audio & decent enough camera. The stereo speakers are bloody loud
Phone?? What phone??

Yes! Solid build is right! Plus those stereo speakers are AMAZINGLY loud with no crackling whatsoever at max volume!
I don't use xLOUD though. I wish there was an additional use for the music light too.

My issues -
Battery life is not that great, even with wifi off most off the day and brightness to a minimum when indoors.
Homescreen takes a few seconds to reload most times after I exit an app.
Free memory is usually around 10-12%, so I use Memory Booster often to free up some ram.
Some stupid apps like Yahoo constantly reopen on their own and run in the background, taking up free ram.

I really love my white Live though!

The best mobile phone brand died with Sony Ericsson's death. Shame on you Sony for killing it! And, of course, for ruining the Xperia brand...

Updated my Live yesterday to 4.0.
Everything is running smooth so far. Liking it
No home screen reloading everytime I close a game or app. Generally more RAM available and less lag.
I like the differences in the UI. Some things are nicer, like music controls on lock screen, you can unlock directly to the camera, smart search, a new gallery.
One thing I don't like is the new camera UI. The older one was simpler to use.
But I AM satisfied with the update
