We’ve been following the Xperia Arc since we first saw it back in Jan. at the Consumer Electronics Show. We loved the look and feel of it then, and now we’re excited to have it in the TechnoBuffalo labs to see if it lives up to the expectations that come with being considered a flagship phone.
We normally ask questions and then answer them in the video, but we have to say that the design is beautiful, and it is easily one of the most striking phones we’ve tested. Beyond that, how is the screen? Being that it is a single-core in a dual-core world, does this impact the performance at all? How is the screen visibility outdoors? We run all of the normal tests and then some, and some of the pros and cons of this sleek new phone may surprise you.
For the full review, watch the video above and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
