all over the winner is galaxy sII...ok..but still now am a galaxy user..thats having a cheap body quality...also in plastic cover...its cheating customers also...but ma friends arc s still the same as earlier..looks in mint... 
Sorry but according to Sony the <a href="http://www.sonymobile.com/gb/products/phones/xperia-arc-s/specifications/">Arc S has a single core processor</a>.
Arc S Has a  dual Core Too......... The Arc Has A Single Core Correct It !
but the xperia ray is cheaper and is absolutely gorgeous
