The review is finally arrived :)
But, after several weeks being on the market - it is obvious that besides the nice specs there are some serious problems:
- battery problem widely reported
- reception problems
- quality of manufacturing also a big issue: like cracked cases etc.
If reliability, quality of manufacturing not considered according real life experiences - how valid the review?
Having a reviews on the specs? That could have been done 10 months ago - when the phone was announced.
This looks like a good phone. But I just love my iphone so much =) If the iphone never existed, my choice would be between this one and the N97, with more for the N97 =)
this phone is looking good but i dont have money to buy for my father bigal madarchod i am also madarchod my brother is madarchod any other work with me they all madarchod.

[deleted post]Do you really expect someone to take your comment seriously when you talk like that? In my opinion this phone is functional and its decent in its styling. I would definitely get this phone once the price drops a bit.
I heared deffrent opinions, some said its one of the greatest phones ever made, others won't even think to buy it
I am confused what why should go through, buy it or leave it
Thank you so much for putting yourselves through all this effort to make this review. Ill click all of your sponser screens! I hope it will help =)
Thank you again
Chris, 29 Dec 2008How 'loud' are the built-in speaker(s)? It's funny how the review team can overlook this .... ... moreGSM arena didn't overlook the speaker performance on Xperia X1. They tested the speaker and the result was a ''Very Good'' one.
How 'loud' are the built-in speaker(s)? It's funny how the review team can overlook this .... It may not be the a priority for others but sure is for me.
Behind all the flash of the panel interface lies another Windows Mobile smartphone. The Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition, so you get the full Microsoft Office Mobile Suite and support for Microsoft's Direct Push Technology for real-time message delivery and automatic synchronization with your Outlook calendar, tasks, and contacts via Exchange Server. In addition, you can access any POP3 and IMAP e-mail accounts that you have; we configured our review unit to get our Yahoo Mail by simply entering our log-in ID and password and we were set up in just a couple of minutes. Other PIM tools include a task list, a notepad, a calculator, and a PDF reader. For added functionality, you can always download more applications, and there's even a shortcut included to the Handango store.
For Web browsing, the Xperia X1 ships with the Opera Mobile Web browser, in addition to the default Internet Explorer Mobile. There's also Windows Live integration and the aforementioned Google panel, which gives you quick access to search, Gmail, and Google Maps. On the Sony Ericsson panel, you can get Web feeds from up to 10 of your favorite sites, and you can choose how frequently you want to receive updates. As far as connecting to the Web, the smartphone offers integrated Wi-Fi and 3G. The X1 supports the 850/1900/2100 UMTS/HSDPA bands, which means to get the 3.5G speeds in the States, you'll need an AT&T SIM card. You'll still be able to make calls and surf the Web with a T-Mobile SIM, but it will only be on EDGE speeds since the carrier's 3G network runs on the 1700/2100MHz bands.
The Xperia X1's phone features include quad-band world roaming, a speakerphone, conference calling, and text and multimedia messaging. The phone book is limited only by the available memory (the SIM card holds an additional 250 contacts), and there's room in each entry for multiple numbers, e-mail addresses, instant-messaging handles, and birthdays. For caller ID purposes, you can assign a picture, one of 41 polyphonic ringtones, or a group ID. Bluetooth 2.0 is also onboard for use with mono and stereo Bluetooth headsets, hands-free kits, and dial-up networking.
The smartphone also comes equipped with assisted GPS. To speed up the process of determining your location, the X1 also includes a utility called QuickGPS that we've seen on a few GPS-equipped smartphones; it downloads the latest satellite information via an Internet connection. While Google Maps for Mobile comes preloaded on the X1, you will only get text-based driving directions from the app. For real-time tracking and voice-guided prompts, you'll need a location-based service or online application like Wayfinder Navigation, which is provided on the software CD.
Sony Ericsson makes a big deal about the Xperia X1 being an all-in one device for both work and play, so it's no surprise there are a number of multimedia goodies. The X1's media interface is built to resemble Sony's other consumer electronics, including the PlayStation, the PSP, and the Bravia TV line, so it may look familiar to any owners of those products. The media player supports MP3, MP4, M4A, AAC(+), WMA, WAV, MIDI, MPEG-4, WMV and other music and video formats. Other goodies include podcast support, a streaming media player, and an FM radio, though you have to use the included headset for the latter. The X1 has about 400MB of onboard memory, and the expansion slot can accept up to 16GB cards.

I checked both videos on my PC, using a 22" monitor with 1920x1080 resolution. Even though everything looks awesome, there is a huge difference in that xperia is lacking a lot of quality and looks like it got compressed too much compared to N82.
it fails here in my hometown.
all the winmo people that i know prefer HTC or MWG (and Iphone, or Blackberry).
and none of them bought the x1.
i checked booth video samples and i think that xperia records better then n82,xperia's look nicer are mach sharper then n82 which produces them a little foggy,i checked them on ps and also on my phone,results the same
