Thanks to Leigh Geary of Coolsmartphone for this review of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. Below is an extract of the review, the full version can be found on the Clove website or over at Coolsmartphone.
When we first saw the Xperia arc in Barcelona Sony Ericsson told us that the camera was spectacular – that it was better in low-light than any other phone camera, that the stabilization controls would make HD video recording smooth, that the constant focus would make any camcorder surplus to requirements.
D’you know what ? I think they’re right. This is one of the best, if not the best camera I’ve ever seen. Colours are maintained in low light, pictures come out far better than I’d ever have expected. Video recordings were clear and stable. It’s probably best to show you what I mean with the aid of these shots..
The gallery system is fluid and quick. It has nice touches such as tilting the images when you tilt the phone and will let you crop, rotate, delete and share images via Facebook, Twitter, Messaging, Bluetooth etc – similar to sharing web pages. The whole system, is lovely to use.
