I bought this phone once it has released. By the way I am WinMo Fan not SE Fan.I was quite sure that some SE fans will not get used to XPERIA because it is WinMo OS. WinMo is not easy to use once it is introduced to someone especially not familiar with such flexible OS (you can add, remove program, customize your OS to your requirement like Sambian OS). For sure, this is the best WinMo Phone I have used ever. I see also some people mixed things up and down. They know nothing about main purpose for every phone or OS. For example, synchronizing your e-mail , contacts, tasks, appointments …etc is one of the greatest feature of WinMo that no other OS can do it perfectly. May somebody tell me that he can use word , excel , power point on Sambian , iphone , or blackberry but 100% they cannot do efficiently like WinMo OS. This phone is very powerful phone than people think.It is not only panels and some SE features. I can do a lot, lot , lot , lot …… for example I can download Skyfire browser to surf the net even butter than iphone safari. Think of something you have seen on any phone like nokia phones and you do not have it, just go surf the net and get it. I have to admit again WinMo is not friendly use for fresh user, but every thing is getting better in near future. Just wait for windows phone 7.0 not 6.5.
hi does anyone know if when you make a call does the screen turn off so that the bottem of your ear hits buttons when your talking? i would like to know ASAP as im looking to buy this phone

Hi all..thks for your reply and it help so much on my xperia inside exploring...and one more thing..i went to youtube site and try to open it thru the live streaming...but unfortunately,it couldn't open and it keep saying cannot connect server..strangely i can see our local live tv by live streaming with no problem...then why i cannot see live streaming thru youtube...
highly appreciate your help fro those who knows better
650$ gone down the drain, SE your fate is same as was P990i it took 2years to correct but only updates improve performance not hardware or internal memory.
995 should be immediately launched otherwise SE will go broke.
I promise never to buy SE product until they change high launch prices and R&D department before final launch.
i found it!
to remove a profram:setting/system/remove program and for recording a voice u must create a note then tap "view recording tolbat" then u can record
I think sony is better than nokia, purely because the japanese culture is more innovative and mature. so they can make more interesting products.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2009Never again WinMo!!!! it`s complete disaster! No matter if device is SE Samsung HTC or whateve... moreSONY makes our world happier with several innovations, patents, brands in entertainment electronics.
How about Nokia... I don't remember any.
With SONY's entry into the mobile world together with ERICSSON in a partnership... our phones become more fascinating and entertaining... others follow.
Idou is the 1st phone in the SE Entertainment Unlimited lineup... even before its release... it is already a VERY HOT PHONE... it will be an envy of others because it will be "like.no.other"... It's a SONY.
Never again WinMo!!!! it`s complete disaster! No matter if device is SE Samsung HTC or whatever!!! Last few years a have try almost everything X1, Omnia, Diamond, N95, Apple ... But now im sure Nokia is Nokia no matter what I give my XPERIA to my wife, and buy my self Nokia N96!
I have been using the X1 for a month now and I think it is a great phone. I love the way the keyboard just slides out. This phone is not slow at all, mine is very fast actually and the response is excellent. The only problem I would say is wrong with the X1 is the samll amount of internal memory, however I microSd card shoudl do the trick. Sorry one more thing don't download TouchFlo 3d it really slows you x1 down and it kept turning off my phone for some weird reason, but uninstalled this and phone is working perfectly now.

I have had the X1 for just over a month now, an no problems at all. The speaker is a bit low, but that can be overcome with external speakers. The phone only crashed once, and I blame it on 3rd party software, not SE or MS. Also, the phone has never connected to the internet automatically except when you set an application to do so.

That is like the chevy is a good car except the... moreWell it is a personal opinion. I've even tried an Asus p565 last month and beleive me it is the worst phone I even had....the battery would't last even 3 hours. It's like carrying the charger whereever you go. I Call Asus P565 a complete failure with the most pathetic "Glide" Interface with no usability. Mobile phobe for me is 1) The Call quality, 2)Network frequency band (Travel), 3) Friendly Web browsing 4) Battery back-up, 5) Design and 6) Multimedia. Xperia has given me everything.....though I'd agree....the pricing of the phone is not co-relative to the value it provides the user (value for money spent). There are equally better phones available in the market, which are cheap and give almost the same satisfaction. Well the whole world knows, that the WM OS has its own flaws....we are evolving, but it'll take its royal time....I'm planning to shift soon to Samsung Omnis HD. Your comments on the same are very welcome!

You should read ´POST YOUR OPINION...˝
I post mine you post yours.
I had very disappointing experience with X1 and you had wonderful.
The difference between us is that I tolerate yours while you do not mine.
You want me to shut up just because SE unable to produce a model which works reliable.
Actually made by HTC.
SE announced that the next X1 will not be made by HTC.
You think because HTC did such a great job?
X1 is offered for free! with a cheap contract and it is still not very popular - free!
Enjoy your perfect unit! :)

I have had the same experience. After a few weeks I did give another chance, but I experienced the same unreliable slow performance.
It is no wonder that X1 is one of the biggest flop of 2008!
