fatexo, 19 Oct 2010I already bought this phone last week..
And to be very honest, its not awesome or mind blowin... moremilestone 2 is going to be hella expensive... you do realize?
And x8 once it gets 2.1 upgrade should be best phone in its price range hands down.
If you want milestone 2, might as well grab x10. 6 month since I bought it and its still kicks all android phones' butts. I'm using android 1.6, and honestly nothing I really need from 2.1 (except i'm looking forward to 720p recording!)

Thats not to say that its bad or something. It does everything i want it to do for me. Surf the web, messaging, calls, music, some games, etc
Its just a decent phone for the price tag and thats it..
However i wanted to buy the milestone 2 but its not yet available in india yet so i bought the x8 so when the milestone 2 arrives it ll be easy to switch.
Why didn't you guys mention the Samsung Galaxy 3 as an alternate choice to this phone. It's one of the best phones in its price range.
Couple of points:
Hold down the options key and you get the search popup
The X10 minis, the 2.1 software for the X10, and I assume he X8, have a "Smart Search" widget which does smart dialling
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2010well people think so N8 scored on some reviews grade way below 5forgot to say the scale was from 1 to 10
Xperia Dude, 19 Oct 2010SE & Samsung both are great. But what about Nokia? Are they dead?well people think so N8 scored on some reviews grade way below 5
Man that timescape garbide ruins a otherwise OK phone
the Camera is useless but it could have still been a viable purchase had it had Stock Android
gsmarena its outdated OS not dated OS in the cons section of the handset on the first page.
Thank you :)
SE & Samsung both are great. But what about Nokia? Are they dead?
Heard that X8 will receive update to android 2.1 AFTER X10 will.. maybe..someday.. updated to 2.1 BWAHAHAHA......
would there be any update regarding the graphic equalizer for X8? Mega bass setting, clear bass, and etc.?
Guys take it easy ok! We will see the update in a week or so. OK I admit that se took so long for this upgrade but now it's ready, so there was no need for gsmarena to bash se as they usual do! Enough of this sick and biased attitude towards sony.
They praise samsung like 24/7, they mentioned that the galaxy s is one of the best devices in the globe, but did they mention that after the official upgrade to froyo the device became buggy and laggy??! Did they ? of course not, because it's a samsung. but if it was a se, it would be first news of the morning.
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2010But isn't it the FACT ALL Android phones from certain brand are still running on 1.6 ONLY? Di... moreYeah, you're right.. It's kinda weird that they still stick with 1.6 when many android phone including china android phone out there already taste 2.1
[deleted post]But isn't it the FACT ALL Android phones from certain brand are still running on 1.6 ONLY? Did the company "committed" upgrade ever since it released X10 back in April, when competition like Moto Milestone already moved to 2.1?
6 months down the road and the only promise from the company is "yes, eventually all X10/X8 WILL receive the upgrades". Remember, the average lifecycle of a phone now is about 9 months, and it already spent 2/3 of its time "waiting" for upgrades.
Chester Copperpot, 18 Oct 2010What a boring underspecified phone. It's more suited to Tesco pay as you go users.LMAO thumbs up to you man
All the negatives on the phone will be fixed once 2.1 rolls out. which is before the end of the year.
