At the beginning i really exited with bigger screen and also querty's keyboard on Vivaz Pro. But when i get interact with it those excitement were gone. The Plastic body and fragile, make me consider Vivaz wasn't strong enough to against sloopy user like me (and considered cheap Smart phone compare to its price). The excitement of seeing video is reduce when i find out that its not built it with loud speaker as W type, not to mention its not stereo (No AVI format?). The screen resolution not as i expected as clear and bright, yeah its supposed we say "It's a SONY" instead of just a label. Software interface wasn't that good as in Galaxy and Blackberry. The good point, I like the idea of the design, much bigger screen to interact, with that almost all the surface and also the light-weighted phone makes it a plus for others.
at 1st, i was thinking of buying this phone a month ago. it looks very cool in the pictures posted here and the features are also great especially the HD video recording. but when i went to store and 1st touch of it, my excitement was brushed off. the build quality is not very good. it feels like i was holding a plastic toy in my hand. also, the qwerty keyboard is not very smooth when you slide it. it feels like it stuck on something. that alone just turn me off, otherwise, it is a really great phone in my opinion.
i ended up buying n97 mini instead which also has an OK features for me and suits my needs well.
so bad one I was thinking I will get Sony one but not Nokia ...!! so bad..

phat, 25 Jul 2010i dun know how to solve the prob..
maybe i'll change my mobile phone..
go for nokia i guess.... moreThere are softwares available to improve the battery, but I am talking about my sony x10.
I also have to charge my battery everyday, with very little use. In 12 hours it goes to around 60 percent remaining, If I won't charge, the next day I'll have about 45 to 50 percent battery remaining, and it can go down quickly with heavy use.
my n97 on the other hand stays for 3 days easily.
