You get the picture. Caveat emptor!

This is an amazing electronic device, but to say it is a "phone" is stretching it.
I paid through the nose for this 'phone'. It can do practically anything you would ask of it, but it is *highly* un-user friendly & sluggish for what you'd expect.
In a call you dont even have the keypad available - you have to turn it on!!! Doh! I'm in a phone call, and there's no keypad? It's very annoying when calling an automatic menu system. The reception is atrocious! Phones 10 years ago were better - no joke. The software was poorly designed from a usability perspective. There are applications that claim to be finger-friendly but require the use of the stylus for menus!? The frequently used reset button (Windows crashes regularly) is accessed by removing the 'phone' back cover, which means if you have it in a case it is even more fiddly & time consuming to do. No image stabiliser in the camera means candid shots are normally blurred, if you can start the camera in time to snap them.
Instead of fixing the issues the X2 is being released it seems. No sale.
It's a good phone to look flash with and show off, but if you want productivity get a Blackberry. I'm replacing mine.

This phone do support ARabic and all major languages, infact the answer to most of the questions which asked about different softwares real player, core player, word , pdf documents and alot more.
I will give them a simple answer this Xperia is not a simple mobile, its Windows Mobile, it can make all the software working/ and other operations just as you can do on your computer windows. There are thousands of softwares available just like Microsoft XP, Vista, 98. So dont get hesitate to buy if you are looking for any particular software for Xperia.

Microsoft Word and PDF from computer work in XPERIA X1 or not? if we copy documents from computers to put in this phone, does it work?
Can it be upgraded to Windows mobile 6.5? I heard that Windows released the 6.5 version.
That's a good review. In fact that helped me make my final decision. I have been reveiwing this phone ever since it was announced in Feb 2008. Read most of the comments some literally nonsense and some good. Yours was an excellent one true to the core.
This is my first post ever in this forum.
Thanks guys for all the feedbacks with and without using it.
Excellent phone. Works great. I had updated to a Windows 6.5 cooked/custom rom from Xda developers. Any one interested can check this page for a list of cooked/custom roms.http://forum.xda-developers.co...ay.php?f=471
Any news from SE for X1 having an official upgrade Windows 6.5 OS.
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2009great review....
plz suggest which one should i go xperia black or silver....Thanks! My earlier phone was silver, so I went for Black this time...but even if I did not have a silver phone earlier, I would have gone for a black one (I liked it better). It’s a personal choice but here are some points to consider:
1. On a silver phone the external menu, design etc are more visible to a naked eye as compared to the black one because of a silver lining differentiating the menus
2. Black looks more stylish and sleek:-)
3. Since the external keyboard in anyway silver, the black color gives a good contrast when you slide open your keyboard. That's why you see most of the pictures on SE site as well as other sites like gsmarena showing a black phone as default. You can check out the silver color by clicking this link: http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_e...pin-2246.php
The choice is obviously yours!
