What's the device's video playback quality like? Is there an option to watch the video fullscreen?
Also, what's the music quality with good headphones (KOSS Porta Pro, for example) like?
mak, 08 Jan 2009is this phone good for music?
im big music fan but want touch screen no other fone has both..... moreI think this phone is good for music only if you use high quality headphone/speaker.
The quality of built-in speaker is not very impressive, but is ok for general use.

You can imagine how much the provider pays for it if it is still a good deal for them - 200USD?
May be some reps can tell us.
There is no point to pay for a phone when you van get it for free - or just send a check to SE directly, support them to make even a better phone.
Besides the WinMo problems and some reason the software bugs are more annoying than HTC other phones - X1 made by HTC - there are other anomalies: battery, reception, broken case etc.
As always,it is recommended to have good return policy even if the phone is free.

Wow! This is the no. 1 phone in this forum by now...I wonder how much is this here in the philippines.
I have been having it for the last 1 month and features are awesome. its good to use and talk time is good, just need to know how to install remote desktop connection (RDP ) on this phone, can anyone tell me how to do it.
The Xperia is excellent, no question. . I have proper benchmark figures from a real world device, and the reality is that the device is capable of recording VGA 30fps, but it can only playback at 20fps. Most people will not notice this, so it is not a huge issue. Coreplayer will play divx on the device
There are some irritating issues with bluetooth turning off when the device sleeps. 99% of all of these problems are resolved by installing the commercial version of SPB mobile shell or the free XperiaTweak app.
You can post sms more than 160 character cause it supports paging. It just too good too be true... and if some one want to listen to music , ya its good but better buy and W910/C905, they are best for sounds... not even Nokia can deliver that type of sound on head phones.
Guys.. why cry for the price.. SE already stated that they are not looking for mass nos. Experia X1 is the first phone from their Xperia series.. Its a phone for the people who likes to configure & tweak their phones as per their needs.. See the looks.. the screen.. all metal finish.. If u afford it than buy it.. after all u will be having something what no tom dick harry has:)) i bought this phone on 12th Dec & i still loving it...wowowww... Just a delight to hold this baby... I waited for this phone since June 10th & had it in DEc!!! As they say Patience does pay:)) cheersss..
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2009Does the XPERIA have good video playing capabilities compared to, for example, Nokia N95? Does... moreHi dude..
yes it supports full screen video playin in WVGA format.. which is crystal clear.. with headphones u feel the sound great.. as it watchin a movie in a dolby surround theatre.. n the rectangle screen gives u a theatre like experience..
U just need to download an DVD ripper software.. select MPEG4.. Video bitrate 512 kbps.screen size 480 x 260 [800 x 480 will give same resolution watchin a movie but will eat up battery & also the movie will give jerks in intervals].
audio fix it to 44100hz sample rate.. AAC encoder.. 128kbps bitrate... just do these things on the DVD ripper & enjoy full movie.. i bet you will like to watch movie on any other mobile phones once you watch on Xperia... X1 rockssss.. hope this helps..

It is offered free with a contract - do you consider selling?
Yes, the X1 has some quality problems, but some people just do not care about that.
Some like style or brand recognition over reliability, price, or functionality.
Everyone gets what they want :)
Im not quite sure if i should buy this X1 phone, because i have read many positive and negative comments. But it really does look like a good phone, and i really appreciate the person who took all his time going over whats good and bad about the "SEXperia" :p thanks a lot, i think this will make me go for buying this phone. I have used Sony Ericcson a lot and it is THE best phone you can buy!!
So GO sony ericcson :)
