    Better in what sense? They both have similar processing power, and the major differences are in user interface and design. Arc is newer and has a better battery.

    Almost the same specs across the board but for a few differences.

    Desire HD has 768MB vs 512MB memory on the Xperia Arc
    Xperia Arc has 480x854 resolution vs 480x800 on the Desire HD
    Desire HD has 1.5GB internal storage, Xperia Arc has 300MB
    Xperia Arc ships with Gingerbread
    Xperia Arc has an LED-backlit LCD
    Xperia Arc weights 117 g, Desire HD weights 164 g
    Xperia Arc uses a 1500 mAh battery vs 1230 mAh on the Desire HD

    As for which is best, you will have decide that for yourself, but do yourself a favour and wait for the dual core phones.

    HTC Sensation should out later this year, not sure about the release date but I would guess June/July. Optimus 2X and Galaxy S2 should be available next month.

    Edit: Optimus 2X is out now. :)

    Seems like you forgot two important things.

    Arc has the better camera, the Exmor sensor.

    Arc will probably get access to Playstation games, if that still matters.

    I don't think these are important at all, most users wouldn't notice the difference in image quality, if you really care about the quality of the photos use a standalone camera and not a phone! :D

    You can download these Xpera Play/Playstation games online, they work on most snapdragon devices capable of running them, just use google .

    I know it's "warez", but when it comes to exclusive titles I hope everybody does it so they don't make any money from this crap and stop doing exclusives. ;)
