Isn't there any possibility that the X8 could have a multi touch functionality? the Iphone 3g is being ran by an ARM 11 412 MHz CPU, and still has multitouch.. and the x8 has 600MHz..?

I just bought this phone... I LOVE IT.
Seriously it's a great phone. It doesn't matter if it has 2.1 or 2.2.
+good music quality
-maybe a bit too thick
Xperia X8 has multi touch but only on the maps application
CAn somebody explain please if I can save a contact's phone number from the tezt message window? There seems to be no way to do this. THis phone is not straight forward as one may expect and I am seriously disappointed with how the contacts are managed. It's as though the phone element of this mobile phone was forgotten.

If you can't find one in the android market, I guess you have to convert your movie files to mp4.
There is also an app that makes you play different types of sound file. It has a demo version but expires after sometime. I can't remember what it was. But you can search it out in the Android Market.
Now that SE Xperia X8 has been upgraded to 2.1, can GSMArena come out with an update on this review, based only on the changes that has taken place by this upgrade?
Guys, additional questions,
1. i am having problems with my x8 when playing games. Whenever i lock the phone and resume, or play any games for about 10 - 15mins , the application will stop on it's own. I could only use the home key to escape, then stop the application and reaccess it to resume playing (of course i have to start again from the beginning).
2. when i open the application "floating images", my screen would blink as the pictures stream. dunno why..
can anyone help me with these?
Guys, my phone is not capable of playing .wma files. though the company claims it does.. i'd like to know if some of you here are also experiencing the same.. if not, can you help me regarding this?
For the price SE is peddling it in India, it's just not worth it. There are better phones available for these specs. I can understand the sales & marketing team at SE have a high opinion of their products but unfortunately the potential customers do not think so that's why they have priced themselves out of the market in the last 3 years in India.
Can some one tell me if this X8 works with nails? lol i know is a stupid question, and a litle futile, but i have acrilic nails, and I want to have it, but i need to change my phone, i have a htc viva, and the major models that are coming, don't work with stylos, so don't work with nails!
:/ thanks and sorry for my bad english
Bigger thickness, actually, HELPS you grip your phone more securely. 15mm isn't much at all and you'll have more space under the finger to hold the phone, so it's less likely to slip from your hand. And bigger thickness means more room for larger battery, without adding to height or width - the really problematic dimensions when it comes to the pocketability of mobile phones try putting a X10 or similar phone in your jeans front pocket and have a seat - impossible, huh? :D ). Fashion can be good sometimes but it also can be deceiving, so don't think so easily that thinner necessarily has to be better :D

Froyo major problems and flaws in Droid X :
So stop whining because you are not the only people that are facing problems, others are worse with and their getting very bad support with buggy softwares.
Samsung also reported problems with Froyo 2.2 !
The thing is that getting Froyo late but working well and perfect is much better than getting it now and making it work worse than 1.6 that we already have right ?? So now let’s just enjoy the 2.1 upgradw which seems to be the best os working on android in the meantime.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2010That is 100% a chav phone. The new unemployed mobile phone status symbol.Well spotted. Cheap but seems like cutting edge tech. Will see this in many hands pushing prams into the dole queue
Can you comment on the dynamic range, please?
Currently the X8 is my favorite to replace my old phone, but the use with a headphone makes me worry with just 75dB - especially at the low end of volume. I wonder where the limitation of the dynamic range comes from: either small maximal output voltage or high floor noise. Especially the latter is distracting with sensitive headphones (e.g. in-ear 16Ohms like the Sennheiser series) in a quiet environment listening to classical music.
It would much help to publish the floor noise level when the headset is connected and the music is playing a "muted" file. It is not sufficient to measure in "paused" mode as the units sometimes are muting the audio output in that state.
