I thought so also until I tried the gs2, way smoother, faster, no lag, but as always sony will come out with a dual core but by then it will be old news as usual

I have an Xperia Arc that I barely use right now. It's extremely laggy. Opening the camera application by itself takes anywhere from 10-20s. I barely have any applications installed, and I do not play games.

Battery life is atrocious. I can leave it in my bag for a day without touching it (I primarily use a Blackberry) and when I take it out at night, it's down to 30-40% battery. No idea what this phone is doing when it's idle.

Every application including the default Android ones always pop up the message that it is "not responding" and asks me to Wait or Kill the program. I usually press Wait, and after 10s I can use the app.

In addition, I find the screen sensitivity quite poor - typing on the keyboard is a horrible affair, every 3 words will have a typo on it. I can type perfectly normal on an iPhone 4 as a reference.

Stay away from this phone!

That's very interesting, your phone's behaviour is like nobody's else here.
Basically what users say is the Arc beeing fast and responsive.
Maybe you are still on very old software.

You have got a broken device, my Arc spend less than 0,5% power per hour in standby. Yesterday I managed to bring the power down to 10% from 100% in the morning, that was after 1 hour of voice call and display on for 5 hours, 3 of them connected to our tv with hdmi while playing games. Forgot to mention that wifi was active the whole time and around 500MB was downloaded as well.
This is much better battery life than any other mobile I have owned.

I do agree with the typing issues usin the keyboard, this has been solved in the latest firmware. I was going mad like you typing longer messages ;)

When I posted my earlier message the phone was at 100%

Now the phone is at 93% and I have not even touched it. I've been out to dinner and back. "Cell standby" is at 31% usage as the top consumer. 7% lost to.. nothing. That's just aggravating.

My phone is 2.3.3 with the Build number at 3.0.1.A.0.145

It should be the latest firmware, I upgraded it about 2 months back.

The last one is 40A2368 and the battery life is much better, the keyboard is better, home screen and some new stuff are better. I think that your phone is not OK. Best regards

Something to think about :


Quote:

according to Qualcomm, is a lack of tools and education for developers to use the new technology. Developers are more accustomed to using native APIs to do all the heavy lifting, and currently Android doesn’t really support that.

Not even Qualcomm thinks dual-core is working out yet
