SE maybe the smartphone leader in coming year, with establish Japan Display like a small and medium display maker, SE will take advantage by introduction AMOLED and high-end displays;
Japanese always take the lead in high-tech.

The other reviews said, one has comes with microSD slot and with none. and also with the video capture capable 1080p and 720p and so on with the other specification...this is where the units will sold to all level of user... low and high end specs but the same platform. i'll wait the unit... even iphone4S/iphone5 cant match it.. not even the world top1 galaxy s2...

Well if this will be named arc HD, then Sony is losing it. Where's the ARC in this design?

Love the simple clean design and the clear transparent "Slit" for hardware buttons.
SE can produce it in two models. One in plastic, the other in Aluminium or Carbon Fiber or Kevlar.
Google has already stated concerns about using SD cards. This is a good fix that the internal memory will take care of the issue.

Love to have dual sim (GSM/CDMA) in these high-end (unlocked) versions...

Love the phone.
Why are people complaining about no SD cards and the Micro-SIM...The Google Nexus had no SD Card support and a Micro-SIM and no one said anything...
12. kshell1 (Posts: 1143; Member since: 05 Oct 2011)
look through the G-nexus post's there was some complaining. but 16-32gb is plenty for me i dont see why so many people are complaining about it

For me personally it's kinda a downer not having an SD card because I store few dozen mp4 files and a lot of HD games in my phone, although a 32gig version is more than enough for most people. I can only dream of a 64gig version. . .

i like the design... and the high-end specification. its almost everything is there.. 12mp camera, 1.5ghz dual core amazing with dedicated graphics processor sounds like pc already in your palm. 1080p video capture. and the only thing i have to ask: is it cybershot capable???... its very important when you are moving taking the shots...

Where did you read about the dedicated graphics processor?
15. seylan (Posts: 20; Member since: 01 Dec 2011)
Well it might be plastic, but it still looks awesome! Except when you open the battery cover, then it looks really cheap!
My ONLY concern...Adreno 220 GPU. Why? Well maybe in a few months after launch they will release an "S" version of this which will have the updated S4 Soc, similar to what they did with the Arc?..But I would hate to feel 'beaten' if I buy this one right away...
Single Led flash is fine, because that camera must be back-illuminated.
Does anyone know wheres the battery? It cant be that white thing, can it?

If they actually brought this to the us at a subsidized price and soon. They will sell.

There are home, menu buttons at the back of the phone.
22. UltraElectroMagneticPOP (Posts: 49; Member since: 30 Aug 2011)
That's what I was going to post about. Though no one else saw that.
26. XiphiasGladius (Posts: 805; Member since: 21 Aug 2011)
Correct me if I'm wrong but, I think the Menu buttons are actually transparent (now that's an intriguing design) which means if you flip or view this phone from behind you will see an inverted/mirrored Menu buttons.

I will give the name..... Xperia HD..... without Arc....
20. samda (Posts: 52; Member since: 28 Nov 2011)
I don't know, this design is just to blank to me, lacks the charm and style of my arc. So I'll probably pass it, I want a long term solution with LTE, quad core, and a gpu that can offer me a high end gaming console quality when I hook it up to tv and controller. Sony better come up with such phone later this year, or I'll lose my patience.

Ugly fast phone! LCD .. really?
Adreno 220 really again ?
Sony .. FFFFFFFUUUUUUU

Aren't you getting ahead of yourself? Save your judgment when we start to play with that phone. Although my doubts are maybe on par with yours. . .
23. Glim12808 (Posts: 393; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)
There's no arc at all anywhere in the phone so how can Sony use the name arc for it! And by the way, I find The Arc sexy and elegant... this one, not so much.
27. bananakid (Posts: 7; Member since: 24 Oct 2011)
I like it. But that lid is redundant... They could've shed off more plastic and thin it down by at least 1mm by using a sim tray!!!!! (but they'll risk getting sued for sure)
