The comment below must be a Nokia fan.Too bad you can't afford this phone!
almost perfect. they need to upgrade the OS, and add a xenon flash, and also add video calling. other than that SE has got a winner.
No FM radio = No Buy.
It is such an important feature on a handset and it is not even expensive to include.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2010Apart from the multi-touch and the 16M color screen(which really makes very little difference ... moreVoice navigation is probably something that an American X10 will be lacking vs. its Nexus One competitor. Like I said, Eclair has a lot of functions that the X10 is passing up on, at the moment.
Just look at how much comments the X10 got!! Above 200 woow! Only the best 2 brands and most popular in the world get such comments!
Nokia and SE only, others even can't reach the half. I guess after all and even with all the competition in the mobile industry, Nokia and SE are still the most popular due to the huge impact they left in the world.
I really can't believe I'm going to say that :
But well done Gsmarena it's been ages since I last saw a decent review for a SE handset in your website, I still can't believe that you were objective and honest. I mean you still mentioned the weak points of the handset but on the other hand you were fair and gave the good points it's share as well. Seriously, I would like you to continue this way, my self along with other people have been fed up with all the negative attitude towards SE handsets. So, again thank you, and keep the good work going on.
The review was very useful and it really helped!
Cheers Gsmarena :D

Keith, 26 Mar 2010One thing I don't get is why they didn't throw an FM Radio on there. They have it on the X10 ... moreI think they originally intended to ship an MW 600 Bluetooth headset with the phone, which would make a radio on the phone redundant, but had to drop it later on to cut costs.
ramin, 26 Mar 2010android2.1=16m color screen&multitouch=best phone until now so SE please upgrade the OS @ Ramin. Better sit tight! If the rumours are true, the X10 won't get the Eclair update till June, just in time for Google to give us another delicious sweet which SE will take another 3 months to port over.

so SE please upgrade the OS Yes I agree this is the best phone till date, I have not seen any phone as good as the X10 till date, every phone lacks some important features but with the x10 it's almost complete! And knowing that it will me upgraded is amazing!
Well done SE, you really did a great job with this phone.

One thing I don't get is why they didn't throw an FM Radio on there. They have it on the X10 Mini and the X10 Mini Pro but not on the full size flagship X10?
As is no xenon flash on a 8MP camera.

That is because android 1.6 is limiting the color scheme. The phone does support 16million but u just need the update(2.0+). Another plus for the phone is the 1gb onboard memory. The Nexus One only has 512mb. Its also the sexiest phone out there. If I didnt have a Nexus, this would be the next phone I get.
So what you're saying is that we should pay SE now and get an up-to-date phone in 2 months? Why not buy what's up-to-date now or get something better in 2 months (or even get this phone for a lot cheaper then)?
As per the current specifications, the phone is not a great value (unless you really want the came or UI skin). The fact that updates are coming (God knows when) doesn't change that fact. Worse still is the fact that given the rate at which Android updates have been coming, you can virtually guarantee that by the time SE ports Eclair on to the X10, there will already be a new Android update out and the X10 will be out-of-date....again.

In our country both the X10 and Nexus One are available. The X10 is at USD650 while the Nexus One is at USD715 while the HTC Hero is USD595. So I conclude that the X10 is reasonably priced.
What country is that? Google isn't selling the Nexus One in too many places right now. And the X10 just got released for sale, as per this article. So where is it that both phones are selling already and at such strange prices?
I am guessing the only reason the Nexus One is so expensive where you are is because you aren't in a country where you can buy directly from Google. If you could that price list would be reversed and the N1 would be cheaper than the X10.
