I'm not a good reviewer but here goes my personal experience so far.
I've currently had the X1 for about a month here in Australia. Currently with the "3" network and it's handling it very nicely.
Overall I'm happy with the phone... of course I had to get use to it as my previous phone was the K850i.
People have commented on the battery life but that of course is if you have the bells and whistles going full time. I've turned down the brightness, email checking frequencys and a few other features and I'm currently getting 3-5 days standby, 1-3 heavy use out of it.
Unlike my previous SE phones (K850i, K800i, Z1010) so far *touches wood* this one hasn't decided to freeze on me.
Cons: (Minor) Sony Ericsson Website for Australia Still doesn't have the phone listed so I can register it on my account.
(Minor)The phone only has 3 alarms that you can set. K850i had 5, K800I had 5. I know it's a different OS but surely it could be changed?
(Minor) Keypad / Screen lock; [START>SETTINGS>LOCK] It currently only has the option to have it automatically lock when you have to unlock it with a password. There should be an option to not have to enter a password to unlock the phone... tad annoying.
Other than that, none really so far. Just trivial ones mostly cosmetics, I have fat thumbs so the qwerty kepad is a little slower sometimes.
If i have any more issues I'll be sure to let people know but I think Sony have actually done a good job with this model.
tHe worst phone ever experienced in my lyf.. Its damn slow.. Its sometimes slower than iPhone..
all sony phones have bad reception!!!!!!!! I used to be sony fan, but not anymore!!
The X2 will be announced soon, now there are more Xperia devices on development, this year will be interesting right? Maybe the Xperia X2 will be produce by Sony Ericsson Japan, Sony Ericsson Japan leaved the biggest carrier, the Ntt Docomo, just to make phones for SE Europe, amazing!!! The Idou is that product, I think the Xperia models will be produced by SE Japan, they are the most advanced on Earth. Guys, what I am telling is true, I know a lot of mobile phones, I wrote comments for Idou since March. The X2 will have 5 mP camera, Winmob 6.5. Visit esato to learn more about SE.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Most developed countra this model is FREE with a cheap contract.
Unfortunately, it is still a bad deal:
- reception bad and unreliable
- OS slow
- battery is lousy
- construction is weak
Try it for a few days before you buy!!!!
I love sony Ericsson i have a W850i for over to years now and i had no problems at all,I have a kid that drops it like crazy but still no problem...Now that wat i call a gr8 cell phone
kitbeat, 21 May 2009hi every one, has anyone ever downloaded new soft ware on the x1? how long did it take becaus... moreIt is recommended that you have DSL or other high speed internet to attempt upgrading. Anything slower will take a long time but nevertheless you can successfully update. Update files for X1 can exceed 100 mb. It took me about 14 hrs to update P990 on dial-up!
hi every one, has anyone ever downloaded new soft ware on the x1? how long did it take because yesterday i tried and it took almost nine hours but still on connection so i stopped it before it installed. please advise
I don't trust Sony Ericsson anymore after the P1i debacle, which proved they let they their phones develop and test by interns. How come a company with so much years of experience fail to deliver a properly tested user-interface. I'm dissapointed.
sony ericsson x1 ,
very good mobile phone . i had purchase few days before .belive me very good mobile . ilove it .i had never seen like this phone
EG, 20 May 2009hello everybody.. i plan to buy this phone.. but now i'm confuse which one should i buy.. eith... moreSince 2006 its has been sony ericsson or no other.Two heads are better than 1.Hate it or love it .Sony is still d best.I wish i could use d Xpera right now,I would feel happy.u can call +2348084867188.
Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 for those whi didn't know is developed/designed by Htc.So its a matter of taste what you buy.
Does any1 who owns Xperia know how much the SAR value is ? and also please share your experience with this smartphone...I'm interested to buy one ,here in Romania it's 359 Euro unlocked to all networks and i think it's quite a deal.
A.T., 19 May 2009I'm a HUGE sony fan! I was all set to buy the X1 until previews of the Omnia HD was released.... moreI think u should buy this one because it is much better. and it's also your choice if you want only touch screen our touchscreen with key-board. So make a choice and buy a phone. I also heard that the new Sony Ericsson 'Idou' is also really good and cool.
hello everybody.. i plan to buy this phone.. but now i'm confuse which one should i buy.. either xperia or htc diamond 2? anybody who can help me?
Please someone, How do I change the Operating System language of X1 from Sweedish to English??? I would really appreciate this information. Thank You.
