phoneArena's preview of the Arc
Just thought I'd post another preview
of the Arc.
The only thing new that I saw in this review when compared to the others is the display and some camera info. (I'll try to keep my SE opinions out of this).
The 'Bravia Engine' pretty much looks like it's just an advanced driver. You know how nVidia has their Digital Vibrance option in their drivers? It adjusts the contrast and color so that they appear to 'pop' better. The Bravia Engine looks like it does it on the fly, that's it. Other than that and the 16m colors, it has the same deficiencies as the current X10 LCD panel. Same viewing angles, etc. I thought that they would at least have put in an S-IPS LCD or something.
I also thought the camera was going to be better than the X10's camera but it doesn't look it (at least in this stage). It's still good. The backlit sensor seems to improve night shots but there's still the chance of getting a yellowish picture (nowhere near as bad as the iphone). If you compare the standard shots at GSMarena, the X10 photos look better (way to sharp vs not sharp enough?). Colors are a little better but sometimes too much. It seems the biggest improvement is that video will do 30 fps.
