Claiming the Arc is better based on looks is stupid.

Which phone is better depends how you define better. Better for me means more refined, original, and fun to use. Arc takes it there for me. It wont be better than the s2 for someone who defines better as newer tech and higher specs. Likewise, even by my criteria, someone may find different things nicer to use.

Neither phone is intrinsically better than the other. I cant be the only person to realize this surely?

No. Mee too. Better ot not depends on the individual user's requirements. Sadly today, too many persons care the spec. too much. I donot understand but it is just ture.

@ jtc42:
Right, it's a personal choice.
And yeah, people care too much about specs.
Arc's specs are more than enough for normal use and if you aren't a gamer that won't change soon imo.

I would have to say that xperia arc is really fast...I turned on wifi downloading a movie, music and either playing a game or watching a movie...no lag at all.

I got S2 in the end tho...because some of the arc devices have a battery problem (my cousin got one that has it and need to send to repair center) which I don't want to deal with.

Arc design is better than S2, S2 is like a bigger iphone lol. Also one last thing is generally I hate samsung's keyboard because they don't put , (comma) in the main keyboard.

S2 has better specs that is for sure. But if you are not a really heavy smartphone user, arc is good enough.

Arc after update has no single battery problem.

I still haven't seen any area where SGS II would be really, seriously better and making Arc a poor or worse performing device. Differences are marginal.

Not for my cousin. I did update, repair, flashing, and other methods on xda but problem is still there.

Now the phone is in repair centre, I gave up on it lol

e.g. it goes to 40% then drop to 1% the shut down. I fixed it to 20% but still not too good.

I would have got arc if there wasn't this battery problem on some phones that are manufactured...I didn't want to risk it and get the headache. This is because the arc is good enough for me to use, I don't need a dual core phone.

So far I am cool with my S2 as well, the screen is really superior compared to arc. But it would appear that there isn't a prefect phone lol, S2 have it unique battery draining problem as well...mainly due to a bug in 2.3.3 (andriod system % is high in battery usage) as well as the dual core itself.
