Naji, 19 Nov 2008Hi All , 65K colors for the large LCD? that for a $$$? why they didn't make it 16m? I see... moreThe reason SE are not implementing a 16m colour screen is that the human eye is incapable of distinguishing between that many different shades, and it uses up battery a lot faster. Why reduce your battery life for something which, on paper, seems better but in actual fact doesn't make a difference to what you see...?
After reading too many opinions it seems that the X1 is more positive than negative.
Would anyone there know if it has speed dials?
nick, 19 Nov 2008im on a 35/month and normally hit about 55/month, but £100 a month is insane! i once did £120 ... moreVodafone do a similar thing, where they have nursery level - had it less than a month, then core value, then high value then ultra high value. I'm in the highest band, and they're still not playing. Which is why I'm jumping ship.
Oh, and I only reached the £100 mark a couple of times...
Revenant, 19 Nov 2008My W960 is through Vodafone. Typically I spend about £70 a month, but it can be as high as £1... moreim on a 35/month and normally hit about 55/month, but £100 a month is insane! i once did £120 o month when i was on 3
but yeah, anyway, i was talking to some bloke in orange the other day and i was trying to get hold of the htc touch HD (cos its exclusive to orange right) and they operate on a basis where if you go over every month, you are put into a higher loyalty band kinda thing, so they are more likely to give you the handset for free.
he showed me the different bands and the higher band you are, the cheaper the handset is on a 35/month. they normally want £129 for the handset plus 35/m contract, but i only have to pay £49! whey!

There is an old dictum ; the dog barks ,the caravan goes by.
Seriously, you must be ill somewhere inside.
can anyone tell me whichone looks better :
the silver one or the black one?
this is the toughest decision i had to make , and i cant make it.
˝To be blunt, the Xperia X1 isn't quite up to snuff with the top smartphones in the market from an overall standpoint. Whether you're talking about its $800 price tag, stylus-based resistive touchscreen or 3.2 MP camera, this is a phone that would have fared better amongst early adopters a year or two ago.˝˝
I have seen 4 review including the one a fanatic pushed here. Others are all disappointed with the X1.
˝The cons here are its annoying slowness and the fact that Sony Ericsson in some cases have taken the easy route with the existing Windows features instead of implementing its own, superior ones for the platform.˝
I do not need youtube or any other stup..d - I have used the X1 - I experienced myself the slowness, the wifi drop outs etc.
See below - another customer complains about poor reception, etc.
While, we just tell the problems these hired fanatics keep telling how fantastic the X1. The same fanatics who loved the G900, W890, etc. all short lived junks.
Hikaru will be out soon.
X1 is history - outdated, brick.
SE copied the 15-year old Psion design.

˝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,.....˝
Anonymous, 19 Nov 2008X1 has more speed than any device? :))))))
Dozens of users complain about buggy software an... moreyah, what ever you say dude.
The true is, thar xperia more faster than any device for this year.
You can check in youtube, the comparison between touch pro and xperia.
I have also seen the comparison, and still xperia, more faster. That is the fact.
Having it on my 10th day, good build quality, nice keyboard.
Not so happy with panel, installed touchflo 3D instead. I was then quite happy with the phone.
But the more calls I made, the more unhappy I am with the reception. It's dropping too many calls and sometimes unable to make one.
general impression, the reception is worse than the HTC diamond and N95 i had.
Engadget noticed the problem in their review. There is also a post on the xda x1 forum about it(not by me, lol)
Nobody should be even considering any negative remarks by any of those "anonymouse" losers who never had the luxury to even look at the real Xperia and now are giving reviews like they had it and it gave them so much problems that they returned it. Most of these are basically Nokia 3310 or 1100 poor users who don't even know what a good mobile means...LOL
To all SE Lovers...just don't listen to these contineus rants about Xperia being outdated or buggy or battery time not good or anything like that, most of these posts if you observe has the same pattern which is ...loads of bulls*it and NO facts.
Xperia is one of the best mobile to hit market and those who neither have the money to buy it nor has the ability to understand the basics of an WM device are posting crap about this set.
And add those who are literally pulling thier hairs off with frustration since thier "favourite" brand has completely failed to produce a set which can match Xperia in style and functionality...and with that ugly brick called N96 failing so badly...yeah all those loyal fans in thier desperation only can do what they always do, that is ...LIE
Xperia is neither buggy nor outdated, for any person who has a working brain and ability to understand new things, new concepts..its a perfect device. But its so sad that many people in this world have the brain of the size of a peanut and they can't accept that some other brand can produce an equally or better device than their "beloved" brand. Its pathetic if you ask me but thats how it is and we will have to bear those losers wether we want it or not. So just don't listen to those pathetic remarks by people who have never even seen a real Xperia with their own eyes and are trying to be an expert on this sssue.
Xperia is BRILLIANT!!!!
