Hi. I just installed android 2.1 on my xperia x10 mini but can I change it back to android 1.6?
Hi.I just installed android 2.1 but can i change it back to android 1.6?
Hi guys. I am using this phone since last 5-6 months. After updating to 2.1 this phone runs smooth andthere is no battery problem. I use this phone heavily and still at 11PM 20-205% charge remains. I use it for GPRS at east an hour, half an hour of GPS, half an hour of call, ocassional SMS. My background data connection is always alive but syncing is off though. Actually this is a smartphone and needs customisation for its optimised running. Never expect this phone to run well as it is after buying. Anyway, for some of your help I am giving a few tips:
1) Disable background syncing & background data if you don't need them.
2) Put brightness to minimum possible. I use it at 20%-25%
3) Put backlight off to 30secs.
4) Don't use any app which polls the CPU very frequently i.e., say every 5-10secs.
5) Sync email account as much as you require.
6) Preferably don't use live walls. They are a battery drainer.
7) Don't try to kill tasks every now and then. This consumes more battery than it saves. Eclair has auto memory management which works efficiently.
6) Keep wifi, BT & GPS services off and only put them on when you require.You may use widgets for easily doing this.
7) Timescape auto sync may be put to off if you don't useit.
8) Use a battery saver Home Screen like Zeam or Helix or ADW or Launcher Pro or GO Launcher etc.
9) Although its not possible to install apps to SDcard in Eclair, one great guy named Bakpinar has developed an app named Link2SD to move installed apps to card. Though a bit tricky can be easily done.
10) Last and not the least - To be able to use this phone to its full potential you have to read and increase your awareness regarding these smartphones. Consult www. xda-developers.com It has dedicated threads for x10 phones.
This phone has one of the smoothest UI within this category and price. Every phone has its flaws how high-end it may be. Considering that and the price of this phone I find this phone very very usable. I presently usethis phone with my Nokia 5800 (S60V5), Acer DX900 (WM6.0 DUAL SI) and have found this phone most convenient except slightly smaller screen (though this is the main attraction of this phone) and a bit more juice in battery. But all in all every smartphone nowdays are battery hungry. How can one expect a 3.0+ inch screen glowing in full will have two days battery life. Lastly this phone has a wonderful camera
