The Biggest High-Tech Flops Of 2008
What to explain? :)))
All you need to do is to try to use an X1.
˝X1 is one of the biggest flop of 2008!˝
˝It may have been the most eagerly awaited telephone of the year... and it may well have been the most disappointing telephone of the year, too. Introduced in February with (almost) operational prototypes, the phone has only just become available in stores. Its “revolutionary” Windows Mobile interface was not only slow, but it also wasn’t any more functional than other operating systems from HTC, Samsung or Asus. And since there’s only one Windows Mobile model from Sony Ericsson, developments for the proprietary interface, quite naturally, are scarce. What was supposed to be the ultimate smartphone is at best only passable, and at worst a total failure.˝
wow 10K comments on one of the biggest technical flops of the year... gives a new meaning to "there is some explaining to do"
mobile man, 16 Mar 2009to all those who still keep bringing this phone down.
Q:a few questions? have you ever used... moreDo not assume we know less or we do not know what we are talking about!
You have sampled 1 or few phones - you can not tell how the others behave.
We have our experience not just with X1, but also with similar product - Windows product!!!
It is clear to me that x1 has much more issues than other models.
You may think differently. I am happy that you got a working unit.
Not everybody is like that and many are very disappointed with the X1.
WinMo in general is a disaster.
Thank .. that SE switched to Symbian.
X1 is a nice design phone but very slow.
The speaker is low. The call quality is worst than any SE phone I ever had.
I totally understand why people return it.
Windows Mobile is buggy, but for some reason X1 more sensitive to that than other phones.
Omnia HTC HD runs much better.
I hope the X2 will be much better!

you keep repeating the same old thing!I could give 100's of links that praise the xperia x1 but it's pointless. Grow up bud and quit the massive attack...unfinished symphony!!! nokia sucks
so i work at frys electronic and actually brought that X1 for 720 USD
anyways i found that the phone is pretty HOT and everything was perfect
except for THE MotherF**** Window mobile 6
ok so my question is, will SE release a new OS update or a new X1 with different OS
because damn i love this phone, and i just hated that another stupid MS product is ruined the Xperience
im currently using iphone 3g right now, love the thing but everyone got one
I don't know about you guys!
but I LOVE this phone, and EVERYTHING about it!!!
mobile man, 16 Mar 2009to all those who still keep bringing this phone down. Q:a few questions? have you ever used... moreHi Mobile Man....thks for your truthful comments and i do personally agree with what you've said.and if you dont mind could you just have a chk on you xperia if you could stream 'youtube' on yours.it should have been no problem at all to play it as the manual stated.but unfortunately i cannot play on mine as it would say 'no network' everytime the livemedia is still on buffering.i dont know what it could be the problem.thks in advance. cheers
to all those who still keep bringing this phone down.
Q:a few questions? have you ever used a windows mobile operated handset before?
A:it can be quite hard to get used to if your a newbie.
Q:when you use the internet on the handset or any function that involves data usage and an internet connection do you manually disconnect it afterwards?
A:any windows mobile operated device runs different from other handsets, just like a pc you need to manually disconnect the internet or it will keep running in the background and drain your bettery fatser.
these seem to be the main issues people are leaving bad comments for.
this phone is fantastic in all functions and if you had taken the time to read the review on use the phone and actually get used to it and read the manual to make sure you are using it properly you would have a much better experience.
all in all every mobile phone is as good as the next if it does what you want it to do, what you all need to understand is something called the mobile market which is aimed at satisfying the needs of each individual so just because one phone doesnt suit you doesnt mean it wont suit someone else.
i'm not denying anyone freedom of speech but before you start bad mouthing a phone because you are scared of it because you dont understand it just think about what ive said.
peace to all.
Well, X1 is an SE model so it is SE responsibility to make sure it is reliable etc. even if it is manufactured at HTC.
Sagem also makes SE phones - probably that would have been a better choice.
At least SE realized the mistake and announced that they will not contract HTC for the next model.
Better late than never :)
When nokia fanboyz had nothing new to talk about as nokia had nothing new to offer except some old packed junk, now the nokia fans are comparing other brands with SE, but what ever brand you talk about SE technology is much advanced. SE = “would Soon Expire nokia & rest of the brands”.
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2009Every things are cool except "WINDOWS"
I hope X2 come with Android!
If X2 wont come with WM 7.0 than there is no way I will buy it
Windows Mobile is the best especially 7.0 version
Every things are cool except "WINDOWS"
I hope X2 come with Android!
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2009No wonder: Htc touch HD, touch pro, touch dual 3G, cruise, Samsung Omnia, LG Renoir ,etc are a... moreI agree!
It was very obvious at the time of release that this phone should have been recalled!
But SE failed to do that.
Many SE fans got burned who waited a year for the release.
BTW, the initial price was 1100 USD. now it is 600 but also offered for free with a cheap contract.
The best thing about this fiasco is that people got the message and nobody get it except some hardcore SE fans or PR staff.
There is no point to carry around a phone which unreliable.
Heiyh All.. My X1 Battery Icon Keep Missing or dissapear... Anyoe can help me woth this problem? i've done some reboot, but it's not working at all..
Thx for Your Attentionl...
No wonder: Htc touch HD, touch pro, touch dual 3G, cruise, Samsung Omnia, LG Renoir ,etc are all much better and readily found in every mall at a cheaper price unlocked, or at a minimal fraction of the price if subsidized by a carrier.
All carriers refused to offer the X1 subsidized, even though they readily give away all kind of smartphones, MIDs and netbooks (from 9 to 12 inches) to anyone signing for 6 months mobile breadband, because of reliability concerns.
A recent review on one of the most autoritative scandinavian tech blogs named the worst win mobile smartphone on the market today.
SE and HTC are quarrelling about who's fault it is that what had been heralded one year ago as a superphone turned out to be a superturd, but the only smart move SE could do to save what's left of its shattered credibility would be to recall all this pieces of overpriced junk and get to work on something that actually works.

And if you are not that case better to stay away from X1!
Many SE fans got disappointed with X1!
