    Just random things meaning I have to keep reflashing. I put it on on friday night and then realised something was killing gmail so reflashed again this morning and found the problem is more to do with titanium cos it works before I restore my backup and now it has stopped locking and the home button doesn't work again

    So who's got the Xperia Arc? It's looking hot. I'm think it might be the one. I need to check it out in person. I don't think I'd be able to afford an all out high-end phone like the SGS2 cos it's gonna be over £500 and I'm one that likes to buy SIM free. The Arc will be around £100 cheaper, maybe more.

    I just can't justify to my self having a gamepad, yeah its fine but id rather a keyboard since i'll be using it all day. When you factor in games on android are paritcuarly great, though they are improving rapidly, it just doesn't seem viable as a phone to me.

    I found that if you Titanium any system apps and any licenced apps they tend to not work. Try reinstalling from the Market. I've no problems at all with CG195... As for the homescreen, I've not a clue!

    On the xperia Play - Meh, not powerful enough.

    I don't know if you were responding to me, but I meant the Arc not the Play. The Arc looks pretty awesome.

    Oh yeah you were, it was late at night and I wasn't thinking straight :p: hardware wise the Arc is good but if I was to ever get it i'd have to put launcher pro on immediately, I can't stand their UI, too bluey for my liking.

    It's happened to me before and I reflashed and it sorted it. Everything seems to be working now anyway and I installed gmail from the market when I finished and that is working as well

    Wondering if anyone could give me a hand here, been trying to find out the exact spec for the up and coming samsung galaxy S2, everywhere states dual core 1ghz procccesor and all the other bells and whistles, but I can't seem to get a consistent value for RAM

    http://www.samsung.com/global/micros...ification.html

    Doesn't have it listed and other review sites state it from anywhere between 512mb and others at 1gb, anyone here able to say what it is?

    GSM Arena state 1gb RAM. I think they're pretty reliable.
    Wait for some more reviews? The phone is out this month so I'm sure more UK sites will be reviewing it properly.

    This looks awesome but it's gonna cost a hella lot! I still got my eye on this but I've kinda been swayed to the SE camp cos the Arc has a unique design, not the same old slab design that LG, Samsung and HTC seem to love....though the SGS2 is looking sexy (that screen looks wow).

    I saw it and love the design. I would get one but A) It isn't coming to my carrier and B) The next phone I get is going to be at least dual core; the Arc isn't that much better than the N1 to warrant an upgrade IMO.

    Probably not enough to warrant an upgrade, but it will be significantly cheaper than the dual core phones and secondly, dual core-utilising apps are pretty far off. It won't be the norm until 2012 I imagine so performance-wise, beyond gaming, I see there being little advantage in a dual core phone. Both the recent Incredible S and Xperia Arc are single cores and no review suggests slow down in media or general operation. They are blisteringly quick.

    So yeah, I think I'd go for a dual core but only at a comparable price because I don't think the extra bucks is worth it. Just my opinion.

    Damn right; that's what I say ove in the XDA forums and why i took the Atrix back. Yes it was fast but it wasn't that much faster than my Nexus 1. Also having a locked bootloader along with a body design that I don't like.... I love my N1 a lot more.

    But yea, if you aren't going to be purchasing a dual core or beyond this year, the Arc is a great phone.

    I'm personally waiting for the Galaxy S 2 to see how that holds up; I had the first galaxy s and loved it; just sold it though.

    Just joined the rank and file of Android users with my new Desire S. First question to more veteran users - how to get rid of the bloatware? There's a lot of stuff on it like Amazon MP3 which I'm simply never going to use, and the delete button seems to be greyed out.

    You can't, yet.

    Keep an eye out here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1033

    As and when it happens, they'll know. You need root as a minimum for what you're trying to do.
