X-Factory, 21 Sep 2008Whether its made in china,france or whatever,...Trust SE worldwide Team! Quality & performance... moreXPERIA... we will see. About SE quality... please take my P1i and try to scroll! after only 9 months!!! then you can tell me stories about SE quality
In Indonesia, Xperia will be released in October.
Is it true the X1 battery can last up to 833 hours when in standby? I watch the X1 protoype review on U-tube, the reviewer said the X1 only last for 1 day using 1500 mAh
People beware of fake ,if there is, as there are already lots of fake N95 ,one that i have seen is only 1 slider and touch screen!
The panel with the fishes is cool as hell.
Check out u-tube for some good demos.
On some of the demos on u-tube the experia X1 operates really slow. The touch response is not as responsive as it should be.
Something to (Possible) look for when purchasing the experis X1, I guess.
Anyway, I'll be getting one as soon as i get within a visa distance of one.
