Build quality.

I love the shape, feel and quality of the plastics and buttons on the X10. Sony have done a great job in making it look good and with the rubberized back cover, it stays firmly put in the hand. The USB cover works well and although the back cover is a snap-on type, itís easy to pull off and on AND it stays clean. My only issue with the build is that the screen is plastic. Thatís a major let-down and obviously the reason why two screen protectors are included. I hate screen protectors so Iím choosing to use the supplied, high quality, slip case. Itís only a matter of time though before I get my first scratch.

Nokia dont lag behind, you need to wake up and immediately come up with new smartphones as fast as Motorola,HTC,sonyericsson is churning up every month or so. The N8's success will be the deciding factor if nokia can regain its former status as the leader in smartphones. Everbody knows Nokia has been playing catch up OS wise. Why dont nokia instead power up the N8 with the MAEMO instead of symbian ^3 just to keep up with competition?

Oh, and on second thought, why buy a SE "smartphone" when their smartphones aren't even "home-made"...but by HTC, or using Symbian. Why not get the ORIGINAL Htc or Nokia. I'll tell you why: because SE is CHEAPER, using cheap materials, cheap port sockets, cheap build quality, cheap accesories, etc. SE is only good for using about 1year, after 1 year they get so "degraded" you ight as well throw them away.

I have ot comment on that. First of all, Sony Ericsson made the X10 them self. It was the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 that was made by HTC. Not X10.

And you say Sony Ericsson is made out of cheap materials. Sorry but i have to lol hard at that. I had my Sony Ericcson S700i mobile for 6 years before the battery didn't want to live anylonger. And the phone is still working really good.

And my Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is still working very good, except that it's kinda slow because of it's CPU. But it's still a nice phone. That's a damn solid phone.

I handle my phones very good, so they lives almost forever.

The name of the game nowadays is have the best OS coupled with a great harware. Operating system-wise the N8 new sybian ^3 should be at par with android,web OS,windows 7 and the legendary Iphone OS. If not, do what motorola, samsung, htc,sonyericsson,etc did just to leapfrog and come up with the class leading iphone which is to adopt Android.

> In reply to Scorpions @ 2010-05-16 17:09 from mp%D - click to readi look at both your arguments, but i cant say i get carried away by a discussion of which is the lesser of two evils. X10 or N8, who cares, Android vs Symbian, not interesting... Meego is all that matters now, Maemo 5 is great already, real computer operating systems, very solid and almost unlimited in possibilities. Thats what ppl shud be concerned about, the new category of cellfones, where N900 is already showing the way, its more than a smartphone. The sucessor of N900 is the only cellfone worth waiting for. In my opinion =)

Scorpions, you can say whatever you like, but your totally wrong about the X10's screen. Take a look here: http://forum.xda-developers.co...php?t=656717

And then you find this link in that topic: http://developer.sonyericsson....docId=102192

Now, who is lying :-) ?.

When Sony Ericsson it self says the X10 have 'Shutter proof sheet on mineral glass' on it's screen, then it have it.

So i'm right.

> In reply to Tom-Helge @ 2010-05-16 15:06 from SrdG - click to readHi TOM,

I think you always believe what u think and that should be always right.

I am going to give you links which will prove what I am telling and reinforce the fact that X10 has plastic screen.

------------------------------------------------­--------------------------------------------
Engadget
http://www.engadget.com/2010/0...-x10-review/

Hardware
In terms of appearance, we think the X10 is pretty polarizing, which might be a surprising statement considering that it's little more than a large slate -- and who doesn't want that, right? Specifically, we took issue with two things here: first, the front of the device is glossy plastic. Often, glossy plastic looks good when it's new and clean -- in pictures, anyhow -- but a few smudges and a brush with your car keys in your pocket later, it can easily be transformed into a war-scarred hellscape. As you might imagine, we didn't scratch test the X10 (we can't imagine our gracious handlers at Sony Ericsson would appreciate that too much), but it's a cause for concern.
------------------------------------------------­--------------------------------------------

Trusted Reviews
http://www.trustedreviews.com/...martphone/p1

So in terms of external features, the X10 holds up well but sadly when it comes to build quality it isn't quite so impressive. This is largely down to a plastic screen, which instantly gives it a cheaper feel than devices like the iPhone 3GS and HTC Desire that use glass screens. Its buttons also feel rather mushy and wobbly, making them unsatisfying to press. Also, its pointy corners dig into your hand, which is a basic ergonomics fail!
------------------------------------------------­--------------------------------------------
GSMARENA itself where u r posting these comments
http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_e...ew-463p2.php

The build quality of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 is solid. The matt plastic on the back is quite fingerprint resistant and soft to touch. It's only the front panel that takes on an increasingly smudgy (blurry) appearance as the day goes by.

------------------------------------------------­--------------------------------------------

Either these professional reviews are lying or you are lying. I can give you more proofs but engadget should be more than enough as a proof.

Come on nokia, its the OS that matters.. dont be left behind by your competitors. They are releasing to the public awesome devices and your being left behind. Why dont you release an android powered N8 just to keep up with the pack and release the symbian 3 version later if they are ready. I cant wait long enough for the N8.

i guess that this forum is for the N8, and not your personal blogspot, so i gues nobody realy cares WHAT you buy.

So go ight ahead, buy one of those pieces of sh1t plastic phones. Oh, and on second thought, why buy a SE "smartphone" when their smartphones aren't even "home-made"...but by HTC, or using Symbian.
