I'm consistently scoring 2,200+ on Quadrant's full benchmark on my rooted SGS with Ryanza's OCLF while X10 scores around less than 500. SE did a terrific job at making a snapdragon phone so slow.

I'm not worried about rooting as I can always unroot the device if ever I need to avail the warranty.

SGS is faster .. x10 even with all tweaks is still a slower system. timescape and mediascape do nothing but slow down it down as well. i dun see how your SGS with froyo is slower, maybe your homescreen is overly cluttered and you're using live wallpapers. but even then it should still be double the speed of the x10 with 2.1

You can unlock the phone with the same arc'd motion, as long as you hit the original position of the lock.

OMG!!! I can't believe my SGS with 2.2 is more lag than my friend's SE X10i with 2.1, in terms of phone start up and opening of applications!!! Damn disappointed!!! Sometimes I do wonder if presence of delay would benefit the consumer's user experience.

Samsung, I am disappointed!!! Going to sell my SGS away soon!

Should I switch to X10i since the user experience is better?

2) Multitouch is coming. Pinch zoom on x10 in Q1 2011. The screen on x10 isn't very good @ multitouching, thats why SE dismissed it at first... but now they've decided that partial integration is better than no multitouch at all. Better late than never, but its honestly not that big of a deal.

3)SE's R&D... Have you USED an x10? Have you looked at the screen? You're complaining about TFT and not AMOLED.... Hey buddy, you're monitor isn't AMOLED, why don't you go complain about that. Can your eyes tell the difference?

4) Garbage value of their customers. Hey look, in 2011 SE will release more updates for x10 users... 10 months after release... And you say they don't value their customers?

Too little, too late.

I've moved on to HTC. Never going back, SE, never going back.

I don't understand what the hell Sony Ericsson engineers doing????????they sell the phone at such a high price and still they cant enable 16 million colors on X10 despite of android update 2.1( Eclair ). What kind of market strategy is this considering the fact that Nokia provides 16 million colors on their handsets such as 5230 which has nearly 1/4 the price that of X10.I don't understand the reason given by the company for not having pinch zoom and 16 million color. Company says that it is not possible due to hardware limitations. My simple question is that if you know that your hardware doesn't support such stuff then why the hell you are still using that hardware. Why don't you upgrade the hardware also.Interesting thing is that the screen on the Current X10 support 16 million color but only 65k colors are enabled by the company.Now tell me is this thing makes any sense that you can enable 16 m colors but you don't want to. One more issue is that other companies already giving AMOLED or S-LCD screens in this price bracket but look at SE they are still using the age old TFT screens in their flagship model. What a great strategy to stand alone in market!!!!!!Either Sony Ericsson has the poorest R&D or they have the garbage value to customers expectations,suggestions, reviews and complaints!!!!!

My HTC Desire HD WITH multi-touch makes your SE X10 looks like the garbage can among android flagships. =D

HTC Desire HD FTW!

> In reply to [deleted post]You people complaining about battery life need to learn how to use their phones.

If you have 10 widgets in your homescreen doing 10min updates, and wifi constantly searching for hotspots... ofcourse you're going to drain your battery.

Run ATK, turn off WIFI and screen brightness.
Put facebook and twitter to update on wake only.
And kill those 10min weather updates...

and voila! 50% per day battery
