Many people have expressed unhappiness with this smartphone model. I have a few things to share on a positive side.
1) Music experience using will be good if you can install RealPlayer beta.
2) Android 2.1 seems more stable for the bundled hardware available in W8. I would like to hear if Android 2.3 gives any performance improvement in W8.
3) The battery needs better management from the user, at least 1 - 2 hrs. recharge every day is must. Note SE never claimed the battery to last more than 4 hrs.
4) For those preferring quantity over quality, there is always to choose from the variety of other makes of smartphones flooded in the market.

Sony Ericsson is not providing quality phones these days.
this phone is released in the 2nd quarter of 2011 & its android 2.1 ??
same in case of x8 & other phones. LG & Samsung are providing VFM & slim handsets with latest firmware, cheap price, comparatively bigger screen etc.
