i am using x8 for last couple of months.
overall it's a good mid range phone.
But in future with outdated 2.1 OS,it will be a wasted investment.
It's high time for SE to update to 2.2 to survive in the competitive and fast changing mobile market.
most of diehard SE fans are switching to SAMSUNG.
Hope SE will oblige the customers in near future.
this phn is gud but it,s battery backup sucks.have to charge thrice a day
Why sony is not brings any new models in the mid range. Like me many r waiting for new model in mid range providing better and basic features like front facing camera and atleast 2.2 android and main cam with autofocus than x8.
Ovi, 05 Apr 2011hey Prabash can u please tell me how access/connect net on X8 i hav a reliance network n want ... moreHey Hi mate,
I actually am a Sri Lankan. So I don't have much idea about how the networks work in India. Actually, I had that prob initially as well. So all I can recommend is for u to go and check with your service provider n ask them to set your Internet Settings..Thats hw I overcame that prob. Bcoz somtimes the internt settings may vary according to your phone model. So u may not be able to use the same settings u used for another one..
Hope this helped u..:)
plz tell me about X8's
2)music experience (with & without headpiece).
Ovi, 05 Apr 2011hey Azer can u please tell me how access/connect net on X8 i hav a reliance network n want to ... moreWith internet services, your phone's connection depenfs on the service provider, as long as you get the correct settings and service, the internet would work, in my case I had to check it on settings then wireless and networks then mobile network theb choose the correct setting given by the provider. In case it still doesn't work, then it's a bad fault if the provider

I used this phone for about a couple of months..And it is one of the great phones in its price range! I really enjoyed it a lot..:)
But I have to share some things that I experienced when using it for few weeks..
The camera is not good at all..I personally had the opinion that SE devices have the best camera quality comparing with the other models. It certainly was when they had Cybershot..But that opinion slight changed bcoz of this phone! The camera quality is poor plus No zooming option is available! (Still you can install Vignette App from the market to get the zooming option)
Battery life is not that good. Yet I guess it is usual for most of the android handsets.
But the biggest issue I had is that I had to install and uninstall apps to keep it going :S..When the memory gets low (less than 20mbs), it will stop receiving text messages! AND THATS REALLY SOOO STUPID! And I didnt have enough space to install games. I didnt want to root the phone bcoz that will make ma warranty invalid..Yet even after I updated the phone (there were 170 mbs free in the phone memry) I tried to install NFS Shift which is only bout 38 mbs..Bt it said that I cannot install it because I didnt have enough space! sounded ridiculous!
And SE's customer service just sux to the max!! They haven't released 2.2 update to X8 (Which would make this phone JUST AWESOME and most of the probs I face would be solved!!)..And neither do I believe that they will release it in the future..So I felt like I had had enough with X8..and I bought another one! :)
These are my really honest opinions..I dnt wanna criticize the fone or anything! :)..so consider these things before going for x8 as well..
finally, I would lika say that LG optimus One or Samsung galaxy 3 would be a far better choice than X8..They almost have the same price tag yet they have multitouch, android 2.2 (Optimus One has 2.3) and bigger screen and stuff!..
Cheers guys! :)
i've bought my x8 last month.this is my 1st time with android phone.i wonder how & what can i do with android.then...i'm goin to explore how it's work..so great..awesome.when i put power amp (from android market)so unexpected,extremely incredible..

To those having great dilemmas on buying this phone or an android phone in this range, you can read this!
Hello guys, I just got the phone 3 days ago.
My comment, --- GREAT!
It's a very nice phone. I have been an se fan since my last phone, naite, and this is my first smartphone. I'm very happy that I made the very right decision! It's a very nice, fun and entertaining phone! My choices were: galaxy 5, galaxy mini, lg optimus one.
Why did I choose x8?
-I trust SE, that's kinda biased.
-vs. galaxy 5 and galaxy mini, it has hvga screen res, it's kinda a big deal to me since it affects a lot about your market application choice and browsing experience. Hvga is a hundred times better!
-vs. lg optimus one, they say LG has screen issues, I don't want to risk my gaming experiences in Android with that.
so I chose x8.
Here are my honest comments:
-Really fluid and fast. Make sure you install task killer to efficiently use your RAM easily! No lag whatsoever. Just perfect UI experience, and I love the ui XD.
-Next thing, the first day I got the phone I already installed eclair into it(2.1) --- Just great! So many additional features! Live wallpapers, updated market and pre-installed apps, office suite!, etc. etc., and no frills! No problem at all! By the way, I updated through usb, (I downloaded software updater from SE site.) I thought updating over the air is kinda risky especially with unstable network, so no problem at all! 2.1 is perfect with my x8!
-600 Mhz, not the most powerful, with games, still very fun and playable with almost no lag but of course it's not the fastest around, but FLUID FAST with phone ui!
-Web browsing, 3G or WiFi, no problem! Very usable! Fast and no lags, tabbed sites useful and many features.
-Telephony/Texting/Mail/etc. - Does the job with no problem! And timescape adds some fun and comfort too!
-Music/Radio, I believe naite was clearer with headphone quality, but it's still very loud, and also gives nice music experience!
-I don't use maps/navigation. :))
-Gaming- great! Make sure you kill unused apps so you get fast and fun gaming! Android market surely gives you a lot of nice game choices.
Camera- 3mp, okay. XD but it's got no AF nor flash, nothing special, and I don't use camera that much.
Video- Great! vga@30fps really crisp and high quality!
-Eclair doesn't allow me to install many apps in the phone and the small/mediocre phone memory doesn't help either.
-mediocre still shots
-no multitouch! Aww.
-Battery is a big pain, I have to charge it everyday because I use so many features on the phone everytime.
Sooo that's it I hope I helped anyone needing for opinions. Ask me anything and I'll try :D
