I bought the xperia xa, xi rather than the original x1 and I was wondering if it is possible to make the phone a little faster since it lags and the video streaming and sound quality is horrible. Plus thos phone is windows 6.1 therefore I am not sure if downloading some newer updates might interfere with the phone even more. any hint for this non tech person here
This is a very good site for people thinking of buying the xperia X1 :

Some thing (more) about GPS :
and I'm not upset;)
There's more to GPS than just Google maps which is the sole software that downloads maps off the internet.
You can have several softwares that will load on your phone and once you have them you will not be required to download anything from the internet (for more info check this link : http://asia.cnet.com/digitalli...2308,00.htm)
These can be bought or downloaded freely from the internet.
What basically GPS does is get your location in terms of surface co-ordinates and what GPS maps like Google maps does is that it shows this location on a map of your surrounding.
ryk, 29 Dec 2009Hi SE,
Good to see your reply. After looking at it I think I wasn't clarifying enough in m... more
There is no confusion. But come on man, you know that most of the average users refers to the GPS as Maps!
When they ask about a GPS they mean a one that you can use for everything.
Most of the users are not advanced. So I think we should speak to people in a way that is simple. No need for confusing them and making the matter more complicated.
It's very good that you have some extra knowledge here, but you must realize that not all users will understand it, unless they have an accepted background in tech.
Thanks anyway and have a good one :)

Just take a good look at the forms and you will find apps that will turn your X1 into wonder land.
Also, regarding the GPS, as I mentioned before it is not free, and ofcourse I mean the GPS maps ;)
( so ryk won't be upset with my post this time)
So if you want to use it like nokia users do, you must have an internet connection.
Hope this helps and congratulations for the great phone ;).
Xperia X1 purchased in Nigeria works ok, but when this phone is taken to Asia then this is a real problem. Caller gets the Switched off message but the phone is ON. Just gets hanged. Not a problem of the Network as the same works well in Nokia. does anyone knows what is the reason. Upgraded the software still the problem remains the same.
i just bought an x1 off ebay for $650 au dollars. is this phones gps free? also what are some tips to make this phone run faster and make it easier to use?

Good to see your reply. After looking at it I think I wasn't clarifying enough in my previous post.
You said "...since the a-GPS is installed, the mobile will use it..." & "... it's not free if You want to use a decent GPS. On the other hand, the nokia has a free GPS that is much faster."
I think you are confusing GPS with GPS maps. These are two different things. You know what I think you can get a better answer here : http://asia.cnet.com/digitalli...52308,00.htm

Thanks for the clarification. However, since the a-GPS is installed, the mobile will use it. Using the GPS alone will be really slow.
In this case, since most average users of the X1 will use their GPS, they will use the A-GPS. So I don't see anything wrong with my comment.
Yes it's not free if You want to use a decent GPS. On the other hand, the nokia has a free GPS that is much faster.

GPS chip in your mobile can also be called as GPS recievers i.e. they recieve signals from 24 satellite that orbit our planet.
To cut a long story short consider this, to interpret the signals the GPS reciever (on the whole i.e. hardware and software) need to know the location of each satellite. This data is called as " GPS ephemeris ". The reciever (in this case your phone) is capable of downloading "GPS ephemeris" directly from the satellite without any intervention from any network : GPRS, 2G, 3G, WiFi or even the network on which you make phone calls. So if you are stuck in a far removed place with no contact, your GPS reciever will be able to get your GPS position (provided you have battery life on your phone).
So what does A-GPS do? Well all it does is that this software downloads "GPS ephemeris" over the internet which is faster than downloading from the satellite directly. You can use 3G, WiFi, GPRS etc to get the data but the real work of tracking your movements is done by the GPS reciever in your phone.
So with the help of a software named A-GPS you have faster "lock" on the overhead satellite.
GPS is absolutely free..., A-GPS (Assisted GPS) since downloads data over internet you have to pay for the data charges which by the way is very small.
