how it is that this old phone is making to the rating charts? something is wrong with the voting.
jafa, 17 Nov 2010I thought HTC made the SE X1bro i totally agree with you. im on my second xperia x1, and the second one after about 3 months of use, bam! flex ribbon completely destroyed without a single scratch on my phone. i think the reason this phone is soo highly rated on gsmarena.com is that when it does work, its amazing. i loved it during the first couple of months, and now they have some really decent ports of android on the X1. sigh. Im definately saving up my $$$ for an HTC phone now.
I've used this phone for over 2 years (exchanged to NEW X1 3 times due to faults) and would like to give the truth:
Out of all the 3 new X1 phones, they will all eventually result to some type of hardware damage, most notably the keyboard repeating keys (all 3 will get it). 1 also eventually had a screen issue where the wiring is loose and blacks out frequently (but the screen still works).
This phone is still definitely a good phone, especially with XDA's existence. I enjoyed both using it and admiring it. However, despite the awesome metallic body, if you look carefully, it is quite flimsy at certain spots, which is the main cause of all these hardware defects. I can guarantee you that there will be hardware defects.
I'm concered about the high rating it is receiving even now (hence my story of revelation) and feel that the people who are giving these high ratings are either denying the fact that this phone has a lot of hardware faults, or, I am so unlucky to have faulty X1 THREE times (I pamper my phones, non of them have a single scratch!)
I've given up on SE and will now move to HTC (the most consistent hardware and software for years)
some people say the phone is bad and some says the phone is good.can someone give me a correct answer
Great news for those who want to upgrade their X1 to new SE windows 7 phones.
A document about SE Xperia X7 & X7 mini has leaked.
X7 specs are -
480*800 pixels 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen , Qualcomm MSM8260 dual core 1.2 Ghz processor(new generation) , 8.1 mpx camera with led flash & HD video rec. ,HDMI output with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound , Windows Phone 7 OS
X7 MINI specs -
480*800 pixels 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen ,Qualcomm QSD8250 1 Ghz processor(earlier generation) , 10.1 mpx camera with HD video rec. , 3x optical zoom & xenon flash , noise cancellation headphones bundled , Windows Phone 7 OS.
Watch this -
Nope you cannot update to windows mobile 7. The minimum specification for this OS by microsoft demands a 1 GHz processor with dedicated GPU. As far as I am concerned this phone(x1) does not meet the criteria.

x1 hater, 06 Nov 2010this phone is like the worst phone ever i bought nearly two years ago.. for 48,000 pesos, roug... moreyes i agree and just advise you to read review of the phone you want to buy from diff. mobile web sites
this phone is like the worst phone ever i bought nearly two years ago.. for 48,000 pesos, roughly a thousand dollars, back then it has its cute leather casing that goes with the executive look the about five months of minimal use the phone starts to hang then its gets worse and worse then suddenly after exacly one yearof use while im editing my excel document it blacked out.. so i consulted the S&E technicians here and the say that the damage is irreparable.. they said there is a leak of some sort inside the phone and that it would cost me 90 percent of the the price of the phone if i were going to let them fix it..they say that these kind of damage is the main problem of the X1.. HTC legend is way better than this crap of a phone
