    Picture quality ?
    Video quality ?
    Does the position of the camera button make it easier or harder to press?
    Can battery last 2 days on full charge?
    Does the reverse arc (thinner midsection, thicker ends) make the phone harder or easier to hold in your experience ?

    Please pardon the many questions, just very curious. :)

    iPhone 4's retina display is denser in my opinion. The Arc's is better compared with the BB Bold series' resolution:screen size ratio.

    Visited and asked a standalone Sony Ericsson store for Xperia Arc price ( saw the phone in the flesh, it's so thin and beautiful! ). Cash price for the Xperia Arc is P27,000 while credit card price is P31,000.

    Of all android phones out there, only HTC & SonyEricsson has a stunning interface in my opinion.
    And the featured-rich SE Xperia Arc is defenitely a good buy if only it has a powerful processor to handle it. :)

    Was finally able to play with the xperia arc yesterday and I was surprised by its responsiveness! No need for adjustments coming from an iPod Touch. I've also tinkered with the HTC desire HD and the arc is quite ahead in terms of responsiveness. It is indeed slim but its not a challenge to hold.

    Hi Xob! I'd like to ask where you got yours for 26k with free car charger and screen protector? I'm excited to get one from the store you bought it from. :)

    So far I am happy with the Arc. Been using it for a week, stable and fast.
