> In reply to [deleted post]this is *Preview*, so it's with the prototype handset, that's why it's also stated there "First look". And as you could have seen there isn't so much information about it.

I bought X8 yesterday from Vodafone Romania, sim free - 189 EURO. It was the single unit available (they had only one unit per store, something like a "teaser" :)) ). When I arrived home, I was surprised because:
- it came with no spare panels (I knew that from the store)
- the headset is not "in ear" type, it's normal and ultracheap, it doesn't even have the "answer button" on it
- the user manuals came in 3 languages: romanian, bulgarian and greek, so I think for theese 3 countries it will be the low cost package
- the warranty is only 1 year...
So I think this is why it's so cheap, because it doesn't have any decent accessories, or nothing at all.
But, the handset I was interested in, and I have to tell you it's great. For this money, the specs are very good. The plastic body is actually nice, it's dosen't look and feel like a cheap plastic. The lock button is not like gsmarena said "More often than not it needs a push with a fingernail really", I have big fingers and I can press it with ease. The interface is great, I like it a lot.
I'm at the beginning with it, and I'm not so familiar, and I have some questions:
1) What task killer are you using? I am using "task kill" and "automatic task killer". The thing is that I don't understand "task killer" because the data monitor shows something, this one is showing different. So, what do you use and how?
2) What other apps and games have you installed so far?
Any advices will be welcome.
If I recommend X8? No doubt, it's the best choice so far and it's cheap (despite the things I mentioned firstly). It fits between any bigger and expensive droid and the X10 mini.
What I don't understand is about the review. Where is the review? They have finished the review for N8, I8700 and Windows phone 7 since the X8 was launched in stores.

I have heard that SE will be coming with update version of android i.e 1.8 by october. How long will SE take to upgrade to the latest android. Every company is offering 2.1 as compared to SE. I m skipping this phone since the system is too old, and the update which is coming is also very old. Wake up SE!!!

For anyone unsure about this phone, or if you have never owned an SE phone, and care about updates, I recommend you skip this phone. I've been left behind with the X1, X2, X10, because SE don't update them. It's a great phone in most respects, just not in software.
