Like all good things Sony Ericsson, the Xperia Arc didn’t wait for an official announcement to make itself known. First appearing on a set of teasing posters at CES in January, it confounded us with a ridiculously thin (8.7mm / 0.3in) profile and an unorthodox concave rear, whose sighting was followed up with the revelation of a potent mix of internal components as well. The same 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor and Adreno 205 graphics that you’ll find on brandmate Xperia Play are present within the Arc, and are backed by 320MB of RAM, 8GB of MicroSD storage, an 8 megapixel Exmor R image sensor, an HDMI output, and a 1500mAh battery. That tightly packed interior is then topped off with a 4.2-inch Reality Display capable of accommodating 854 x 480 pixels. Throw the latest mobile build of Android, Gingerbread, into the mix and you’ve got yourself a compelling list of reasons for riding aboard this Arc. Nonetheless, spec sheets tell only half the story and we’re here for the full disclosure — what’s the Arc like to use on a daily basis, how are its talents harnessed by Sony Ericsson’s tweaked UI, and, most importantly, do people think better of us for carrying such a stylish phone?
