I really want to know anyone is experiencing case crack, overheating battery. There are lots of copied opinions from others. With reception problems, anyone can compare x1 with other phones?
Loudspeaker for calls is painfully low (on par with the original i-phone 2G. The loudspeaker's volume for playing mp3 and media can be of a much higher volume (albeit a little tinny).
Ear piece volume during calls is good.
more comming on battery life...
well, after waiting almost a year for this phone to come out and then finding out that it retails at $800, i went out and bought an apple iphone 3g and personally, it's perfect.
a phone, the internet(no flash yet though), online games, music, movies, big screen, plus it has lots of nice features that im still finding out. i've had it for almost a mounth and id say that for the price, this is probley the best phone out there as far as an entertainment phone goes. im no bussiness man.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2009guess expectations are different for some people. Some people happy with the X1 and some ar... moreur rite case craks n cant get a signal n winmo is crap dead slow n keeps rebootin al da smart ppl use s60 symbian coz u can do alot wiv s60 n thers tonnes of gd apps n dat symbian is da most popular os in mobile fone world chumps use winmo n even dey say it sh!t b wise n chose s60 symbian even if u dont like nokia u can stil get gd symbian sumsungs n dat
Does X1 have a noise cancellation system? Is it functioning like Crystal Talk of Motorola?
Your opinion helps me a lot in considering X1. But I am a little confused when you mentioned that this is a fantastic phone but signal reception and battery life bad.
Comparing to BlackBerrry Storm 9500,do you think X1 is better in operation performance( Voice quality, internet and etc)?
Why did you buy X1 in Thailand? Are you Thai? I think mobile phone is very expensive there.
can anyone help me? i just got the x1 and i love it but i want to download applications to the phone like the iphone applications. anything cool to download or places to get them?
Please note that the X1 available in most countries (X1i = i for international, as opposed to X1a for Americas) does NOT support UMTS850 although it does show UMTS850 listed in the config. GSMArena should change the spec to mention that 850hZ 3G support is available only in the American version! I bought this phone here in Thailand to be used with DTAC which uses UMTS850 and got scr*wed because of that...
First impressions after a day:
I owned the omnia and the Experia just blows it away.
The touch interface is almost as good as the i-phone (almost there but not quite).
Touch screen is still highly responsive and great!
The screen resolution and quality is clearer and better than the i-phone (which I have owned).
The build quality I find so far to be solid and very stylish (steel silver version).
The qwerty keyboard doesn't have a dedicated row of numbered keys but they are assigned to other lettered keys.
Certain symbols such as the underscore are accessed by pressing the 'sym' button which brings up an onscreen menu of other symbols that are not on the keyboard itself.
So in otherwords the keyboard is limited but satisfactory for short to the point texts and e-mails.
more to come...
This must be one of the nicest looking phones out there.
sleek and edgy just like a Lamborghini reventon =)
To bad I dont have one of those to match this phone with!
Adrian, 20 Jan 2009Welcome to Windows Mobile. Every Windows phone that I have had (about 6) across the board had ... moreYes? I also did the same (returned it).
But, it seems to me that Omnia and and even HD owners complain much much less than X1 owners.
X1 is just unbearable.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2009Yes, I agree! I also had poor reception problems! Welcome to Windows Mobile. Every Windows phone that I have had (about 6) across the board had the same reception issues. I eventually gave mine back as it could not be sorted
x1 fantastic fone
battery life is unbelievable
brilliant on the internet
Windows Mobile so great that:
˝AT&T to ditch WinMo over Symbian, iPhone may stay ˝
Iphone outselled ALL WinMo phones combine!!!
Yes, WinMo just really great :)
The Sony Ericsson Xperia mobile phone is an extremely enhanced handset with a neat design. Thanks to Windows Mobile as operating system, the use of Office files and synchronizing with the personal computer is not a problem at all. The new panel interface of Sony Ericsson certainly adds to the user’s ease. The full QWERTY keyboard is nicely designed and works well, although the keys don’t have a clear tactile feedback. Sind the large touch screen is slightly higher than usual, the screen also appears to be somewhat narrower. The Sony-Ericsson Touchscreen responds fast and the high resolution offers an astonishing image quality. Read the full Sony-Ericsson Xperia test at LetsGoMobile and check out the Xperia photo gallery.
I guess the SE PR is pretty strong :)
All negative articles are gone about the X1!
That is the end of freedom of speach and freedom of opinion.
Pictures of cracked X1s - defected product can not be reported any more?
guess expectations are different for some people.
Some people happy with the X1 and some are very disappointed. I guess the reference also important.
If someone did not have a good phone since 1999 :) well that case X1 may be a fantastic phone :)
- reception problems (GSM and WiFi!)
- battery: poor performance, overheating
- cracked case
- low ring volume
- lousy speaker
- poor camera
You type in cracked case X' into a search and you will see...
- slow performance
- hang ups
and some even go further:
˝˝ The Biggest High-Tech Flops Of 2008 ˝˝
Sony Ericsson Xperia X1
˝˝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.˝˝
