Engadget Review

The Xperia Arc S is a minor technical upgrade to the original Arc. Although the hardware here is still sound, there are better phones available if you're willing to pay just a little more.

Best phone I had, excellent design and very durable. No screen crack as the screen and glass is not located on phone edges. Very nice small sleek buttons on the bottom. Many OS upgrades.
