Well there were reports of it being quite quiet - but actually the loudspeaker is pretty loud - certainly you'd hear it in a crowded pub...
It is on the back, and yes, and I guess like many phones, if placed on a soft surface it would be muffled...

If back then I think there might be a problem with the loudness when the phone is laid on soft materials?
Thanks in anticipation of your reply.
Hey you crazy kids!
Just thought I'd give you all an update - in particular about the battery!!
Well, 3rd day using it now, and yesterday I put the "power saving mode" on as well as the "automated backlight" - and stopped using live wallpapers... and it dramatically increases the battery life...
I used it quite a bit sorting out contacts (if you need tips on how to transfer numbers using backup pro / google / facebook and then adding them actually onto the 'phone' - without doing it, you can't create groups or assign ringtones, etc.!
I used it for 2 hours music / radio - sorted out and linked loads of contacts, downloaded apps, generally messed with it (I had updates going on FB / Twit / Email, etc.)
And it was about 35% by 6pm-ish...
In order to run it down completely - I managed to watch most of 'up' in HD (or had it running whilst doing other things) and then increase contrast until it truly died...
I do think several charges has helped, and definitely the auto-power feature...
And yes, you don't need the contrast on full brightness for the screen to look lovely (but it's nice to increase it when showing it off to people!!)
So... all in all - disaster averted - I noticed someone, somewhere put that the X10's screen is better than Galaxy S in sunlight - trust me - it isn't - I've seen BOTH in real life (not just a video) and nothing compares to the Samsung...
Totally and utterly impressed with this phone - I was a bit sceptical at first (like many) and I'll be even happier with the Froyo update (even more RAM to play with according to everyone on here!)
2 quick questions for anyone!!!
1. Is there a way of overriding the "low battery" feature - and still use apps until it does run out?
2. Does anyone know of a decent silicone / hard case for it and where to get one? (UK) It's slim enough to be able to fit into a case and still be very very usable (I'll probably get a screen protector too!!)
Thanks everyone for input and comments - I'll be checking this section periodically so any questions you want answering - just ask!
The reliable source is www.expansys.com
I just purchase from there through DHL.
I am from india as well.
xperia x10 screen is much much better than super amoloed screen of Samsung Galaxy S in direct sunlight. Check the video on this site
jankesdh, 20 Jun 2010Because of damm plastic it's so cheap. Besides you know what you are going to buy, so why you ... moreThe phone exterior may be made of plastic, but is damn tough! Saw the demo at the recent CommuniAsia fair. They dropped the phone onto the floor from a height of 1.6m. The phone's battery came out. But when it was assembled again, the phone was still perfect. Not even a scratch or a chip can be found on it!
