i've had it since early Jan 2010, it's not too expensive, and is pretty good compared to any thing else i've seen in the same price tag,
SE software customizations suck big time, they really screwed this phone up when it comes to software, for instance, the Android boot loader is gone, you cannot back up properly, (can't create system images), Camera is pretty much just works, nothing good nothing bad, sound quality is surprisingly good,hardware wise it's pretty decent, and quite a deal for it's price, the screen is better than the HTC wildfire screen, as in MUCH better,
if you don't mind fiddling with your phone and hacking and slashing at the software, buy this phone, it's pretty easy to turn it into a VERY good phone, once you throw away the junk SE packed in it, a couple of custom roms are available, including froyo and gingerbread,
for someone who wants to Hack his way into learning about android, it's perfect.
How can i transfer files from my x8 to a different phone through bluetooth. Pls help!

Anonymous, 23 Feb 2011Froyo?2.2 how and when did u get update?
Liar or trueits true, 2.2.1 custom rom for x8 has 90% fix, only video recording not working, but soon it will be 100% working for x8
custom rom 2.3 (gingerbread) is available to, but its need to be fixed
its not official rom, so it will void your x8 warranty
Anonymous, 23 Feb 2011Froyo?2.2 how and when did u get update? Liar or truenot officially tho'. you will got your warranty void by installing custom rom. some ppl says that foryo runs smooth in their phone, but some features is missing, such as camera etc. so whats the point of upgrading it then? if you're into gaming and performance, you can go for it.
