PositioningWhat is needed to extend the "life" relative good device that was introduced a year ago and is still selling? The easiest way is to enhance certain characteristics and added a new model designation. This is exactly what Sony Ericsson did with its successful model of Arc: After adding a tag called "S" and provided overclocked processor Qualcomm MSM8255T Giovanni. In addition, it was decided to change the color. Now the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S is available in white and pink colors, and there is a universal black.


Given the fact that tests for the SE Arc and Arc with the already published and are practically the same, this time there will be a description of the large number of items so that more attention be devoted to testing the old and the new model.
The design, size and controlI understand the look that's Xperia Xperia Arc and Arc that S is not simple. The only way is to recognize the rear cover color. For example, the first Arc is characterized by the transition from dark silver to black, while the second model completely black.In addition, the previous model had body pink and white. This is the end all the visual differences.

If the fingerprints and scratches are not noticeable in appliances in white, then the other colors are very noticeable. When the device is pressed in the hand is a phenomenon noticeable creaks, while for the design of the apparatus must say that it is ergonomic.

The front side is the light and proximity sensors. In addition there is a speaker. The volume is very good, and the caller will hear loud and clear. Unfortunately, the new version has no frontal camera, although ideally it's there. The screen is protected by mineral glass. On the bottom are three buttons: "Back," "Home" and "Menu". It's just a slight pressure on them, walking is shallow.


On the left is a standard 3.5mm audio jack, while on the right hand side button for volume control, microUSB and missed call indicator and a small button to activate the camera. Frankly speaking, the use is tricky because of the location - located on the lower edge. On the bottom there is a microphone and holes for bands - almost submerged on / off button and microHDMI connector with cover.
Speaker, camera lens and LED flash, and an additional microphone are placed in the rear.

ScreenScreen size is 4.2 "(physical size is 93x52mm), while the resolution is 480x854 pixels (density of 233 pixels per square inch). This screen uses a technology that does not allow the existence of air in the space between the matrix (LED back-lit LCD) and the protective glass . capacitive screen sensitivity is high.

Viewing angles are small, at a certain angle loses contrast images. Color rendering at right angles gives a great picture and rich colors, similar to the "Mobile BRAVIA Engine". In any case, it is far more inferior compared to Super AMOLED Plus matrix, and even the Super AMOLED.
Compare Samsung Galaxy screen notes (SuperAMOLED) (left), Sony Ericsson Arc (LCD with LED backlight), Samsung Galaxy (SuperAMOLED), Samsung Omnia W (SuperAMOLED), HTC Mozart (S-LCD), Samsung Ace (TFT- LCD), the Nokia 700 * (CleareBlack AMOLED) (right):


Screen Brightness Samsung 700 and a maximum brightness is more than a photograph due to the fact that the photographs shot in the dark and light that the sensor slightly drowned out the backlight.
BatteryThe phone uses the same Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery BA750 as a model Xperia Arc.The manufacturer claims it can provide up to 7.5 hours of talk time (GSM) (the original Arc model it was 7 hours) and up to 460 hours standby time (430 in the original Arc). In terms of continuous playback time the manufacturer claims that it is a 37 or 30 hours of the original model. In general, the differences are not great.


With the aim of testing the battery, I used a special application Antutu Tester.Schematically are interesting. The unit has made 494 points, more than the Samsung Galaxy SL, Galaxy S2 and LG Optimus 2X.


Test results for Sony Ericsson Arc - 515 points, with Wi-Fi disabled. This means that S Arc and Arc or have the same results, or the Arc with a little more economical in terms of energy consumption.


In practical use the following data were obtained: standby smart phone worked for about a week and 20 hours when playing music at maximum bright sound system (with headphones) and up to 5 hours when playing HD video content with automatic lighting. On average, 20 - 25 minutes, an hour taking pictures, just as music, four hours of using Wi-Fi (Twitter and Skype About it is the same as the Sony Ericsson Arc model.

CommunicationSmart phone supports 2G (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) and 3G (HSDPA 900/2100).Speeds are up to 86 Kbps GPRS, EDGE up to 237Kbps, HSDPA and HSUPPa 14 Mbps and 5.8Mbps, respectively. Available standard WiFi 802.11 b / g / n. The device can be used as a Wi-Fi access point for other devices. In addition, the smartphone provides support for DLNA wireless standard that offers compatible devices transfer and receive various media content and display them in real time.Voice and data can be used in Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP.

Memory, Memory CardWith Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S, as well as a range of Xperia, available with 512MB of RAM, a possible increase to 720MB or 1GB. Internal memory is 280 MB.The device comes with a 8GB card, and possibly up to 16GB. The maximum supported capacity microSD cards up to 32GB.

CameraThis smart phone as the previous model has an 8MP camera with autofocus and flash. The camera on the front is missing. It is not clear why the manufacturer decided not to implement a camera on the front. Describe the options offered by the camera does not make much sense, you might want to read the previous test devices. Here are several examples of photos and video of the statue. I noticed that the camera takes very good video when it comes to video clips.
From the photo files you can see the EXIF ​​information.

PerformanceWhat now follows is the most interesting
Smart phone Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is built on Qualcomm QSD8255 platform where the 1GHz processor clock. In models with Xperia Arc is using the same chipset, but the clock speed increased to 1.4GHz. Interestingly, the MSM8225 can operate at 400MHz higher clock work but overclocking is done manually. Graphics accelerator is the same Adreno 205th There are no other differences.
Visually, the SE Arc is the same as the SE Arc. Here are some tests that show the work of the two devices while the third control device will be made on the Xperia Play and Stop technology Xperia Arc.

Software platformOnce the Xperia Arc S had an exclusive version of Android, the 2.3.4. Now this firmware installed on Xperia entire 2011 line. Now users have the ability to take pictures without using any special applications: You need a long pressing the phone and choose "Take a screen shot." The new update increases the stability of the device and make patches for bugs observed.

Regarding the issue of whether the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S can be improved in Android 4.0, it should be noted that the full range of Xperia models from this year to have this opportunity.
ConclusionIf you like the Xperia Arc model, it is logical at this point to buy Xperia Arc In spite of the fact that it is not big difference in performance, but in the games and content of a internet search new model shows better.
