Xperia X1 is the phone when it comes to processing speed, user interface ease and utility. But it does carry cons as compared to its pros
1. If u r a SE user, it doesnt matter as this is Windows 6.1 you dealing with which will put u back into the learner's socks. Powerful processor, all possible functionalities provided (except for Bus. CArd Scanner) and fantastic display screen size.
2. Customise to need. Edit icons and User interfacing Panels.
3. Lovely Opera 9.1 browser providing fantastic landscape view access for browsing. high touch screen sensitivity.
CONS: Although this baby carries who's who of the feature list in one single body, there are key draw backs
1. The key board keys doesnt provide that fast typing benefit as it seems. Keys are smaller then they seem.
2. No Accelerometer. I have no F@#&$@ clue they have not integrated it. which meands that the only way it can switch to landscape mode is when u slide the keyboard.
3. The Movie player sucks. u may wanna try downloading a new one as the clips are delayed while playing.
4. The optical pad key doesnt provide the required speed of access.
1. Considering the Xperia X1 prices, competitive models available in the market and the target business users this phone is not bad. i'll rate it as
range: 0 - 5
Price: 2 - Too expensive
User interface: 3 - Virtual keypad is remains virtual to use and physical keypad possess size challenge
Functionalities: 5 - No doubt that it is a fully loaded phone
There's just one alternative choice in comparision - HTC Touch PRO which definately needs to adapt to the SE's ideology of customizable interface.
HOld on for 6 months and i m sure you wont regret not having bought this.

T... moreHave you noticed that, now that the phone's been out for a while, the negative comments are starting to trickle away? Except yours, of course. But there's less of them than there was last week. The positive comments, however, just keep coming. And I'm seeing more and more things along the lines of "there were problems with it at first, but I played around with it and now it's great". You mention the bugs. Repeatedly. Fact is - it's a new device, they all have problems. So do new software programs, and video games. That's why patches/firmware updates exist. True - it shouldn't happen, but everyone knows that it does, and prob'ly always will. Us grown-ups have accepted that and, while perhaps a little frustrated, we are willing to wait because we know that, once these updates are available, we will be proud owners of an awesome bit of kit. I bet you got your Xperia, weren't patient enough with it and took it back for exchange. Now you're seeing more and more people happy with the handset you sent back, and you hate it. You're desperate to hate the Xperia so that you can justify willingly giving it up...
xperia is compatible with mac ?? for sincronyse music and others things ??
Thor, 26 Nov 2008yes thrue, i red that review, that he said that on the end, some others also said slow is the ... moreAh, and the truth come out! So, even the dude that mstL is quoting (endlessly) loved the Xperia. Nice going, Thor...!

And slow is meant mostly by panels, browsing, changing windows and such is all instantly. Firmwares do tend to increase speed, maybe if there was a way, that you cencel animation on panels, it would insta switch?..

WM devices automatically go to sleep,It's not a bug but a power management feature.If your goung to spend so much money on a device then surely to goodness you can spend some time learning how to use it.

˝The most disappointing about X1 is its speed. The handset is slow, it’s very slow. We have to wait a couple of seconds for the programs to launch, screen switches aren’t fast either,.....˝
Yes, it is great - we pay 800-1200 USD for the X1 and wait for the firmware update - X1 is too buggy too many problems.
Se kept delaying the X1, now finally it is released but I guess even for the fanatics not good enough since they now started to wait for the firmware update.
by the time all things gets together the phone totally outdated!
Trotty, 25 Nov 2008only the software is sony ericsson, everything else is htc....True
mstl craves attention Ignore the cretin.
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 if you set the quality to medium.
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.
I expect a new firmwire version from Sony Ericsson very very soon...
Nokia 5800 available in the US.
The market is getting crowded:
HTC Touch Pro
HTC Touch HD
(soon: BlackBerry Storm)
They do not have the same features but generally target the same buyers.
All of them have large screens. They are kind of smart ones (phones).
