i bought this really cool looking handset yesterday and almost all things are positive. There are some negative issues like android 1.6 and no flash(although it takes good pics). The phone is a must buy if your budget matches it.
I am using this phone for 2 weeks now. Bought it for 13.8k in bangalore.
Positives: Touch is really gud, resolution is also gr8 for a 3 inch screen, screen size is just gud enough..facing difficulties while typing msgs but now i can do it realy fast no issues, music is gud not as gud as sony walkman but its gud, camera is nothing to shout about but who cares about the flash and auto focus atleast i dont coz i have a camera, processor is fast last but not the least it looks really cool
negatives: when u start typing it hangs for a fraction of a sec for the first letter only then it works real fast, when u open so many apps and dont close properly u wont know which are open and phone gets really slow...i have installed an antivirus which also shows open apps, sometimes need to restart the ph if it gets real slow, few ppl mentioned about restarting while playing videos but i didnt face that I have many videos which are as heavy as 30 mb for a 3 min video. no flash player for 1.6 i hope it comes for 2.1, battery is ok but if you use inter too much it will drain fast,
Gerald, 15 Nov 2010yo guys is this upgradable to eclair?????yup it is to 2.1 will be nxt month

It has some problems with the camera's auto-focus, but I downloaded FX Camera from Android Market and it has an auto-focus option, now it works perfectly.
ohh...!!..man...now i'm not gonna buy this phone....after reading ur comments...:-(..!!
Who's paying you to this crusade against Sony Ericsson? I'm just wondering, everywhere there is a forum with SE on it, you will post your biased comment...
Don't you have other better things to do?
ive updated the software when i first connected x8 with the pc...it updated for 45 mins and still i have the problem...the phone restarts when playing any video...am really pissed off now as the main reason of getting this was to watch videos and the output speaker is also not that loud. often gets stuck up...i cant even store the contacts as it always keeps telling this "the process android.process.acore has stopped unexpectedly. please try again"
yuk am pissed off...
good phone 3 inch touchscreen,android, good sound and camera better then galaxy 5 and galaxy 3
i keen 2 buy a android phone under 14k. I hv short out se x8 n galaxy 3. Im very confused b/w them. I love se but galaxy 3's UI compelled me 2 think 1ce again, galaxy UI is remarkable. There r some doubts x8's ram, as it is 168 mb only. Is it sufficient 2 run high applications. N 1 thing more, does x8 have kinetic scrolling when bulky internet site is opened...? . N im a music lover so i want 2 know that how its performace with 8gb micro sd card.
Plz guys help m out frm dis confusing situation. Plzzz....
Thankx in advance..!!!
Love u ol.
