Sony Ericsson Arc and even the flagship model of the Swedish-Japanese joint venture, but not without flaws. For example, I ran into a problem viewing videos downloaded from the Internet. A onetime my Samsung Galaxy S C mastered this task. And then – nothing. I
wanted to review several series of “House”, but nothing came of it.
The decision came, of course, from the outside – just the standard pre-something player does not know how, you have to download another one that supports the necessary codecs. Of the several players I like most about an application called VPlayer. It certainly is in the Android Market, on the trekkers and lovers of the forums android. The application is due for a few seconds (thanks to a powerful stuffing Arc) and immediately ready to show movies.
Look at the rating of a player on the market is very high, ie as long as he likes people.
The player interface is modestly, but this has its own charm. Transparency is a virtual buttons, which suits me. All is configurable, but the virtual button Play / pause at the bottom right corner of the screen terribly inconvenient, because this control you expect to see in the middle. What prevented him put on the screen? Plus it will not be there, because the symbols pop up, and the fonts are perfectly legible. There is also a drawback – when you start the player throws us into the general file list. Why did not immediately remove the folder where the file is playable? It is not clear.
The quality of the image has no complaints – everything is fine, no brakes, the grain is minimal. Thanks to the beautiful display, I am happy to watch movies in HD on the way to work, good viewing angles make it possible not to lose the thread of the plot in the commotion. 2.5 GB of files to digest properly, no brakes.
Brightness is automatically adjusted in a narrow range of ambient light, thanks to a light sensor. Volume is sometimes not even enough to watch a movie with a loud soundtrack. There are not enough in the subway, of course, with complete headset. Sitting on a park bench, this problem does not feel.
In general, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc more than suitable for viewing compressed video, but there is one “but” – only enough battery power for a couple of series “House” or a feature film, and then you will have somewhere for an hour and a half, to find where the recharge.
