I did not enjoy my X1 - whilst it was in my posession. I lost it at an amusement park on a very fast ride. I'm greatful to its new owner for forcing me to buy a new phone. I would describe the X1 as one of those dreams that was about to be fantastic!...and then someone(?) wakes you up. The keyboard looked sweet but functioned bitter. My memory serves me better than its camera, and the words to describe some good in it, evade me at the moment. I was pleased in not knowing when it removed itself from my possession, like one leaving before dawn, was yours, no good byes, just vague memories, of an: Almost, intoxicating experience.
its soo funny how people can bash the x1, curious persons should visit the xperia forum over at the xda-developers community to see what the x1 and their owners are really saying about this piece of device.
currently i own the black x1 and i am selling it on friday, then on monday, i will be purchasing the silver xperia x1, so far i have not seen or tested any other phones that i will replace my x1 with, only the iphone in my opinion can come close to the x1 or any of htc new wm devices.
the x1 in your hand is nothing compared to pics or videos online, once you pick it up, you dont want to put it back down, not exaggerating here, its a fact.
i think people need to stop bashing a phone bcos its out of their price range, im sure if the bashers were to get one for free they would never bash.
about this supposed to be leaked of the x2, god i hope this is not the x2, bcos this is one ugly mofo for a phone
for those wanting to see a photo by the xperia cam...see here http://photos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs055.snc1/4499_100606613282795_100000003690937_12001_1126666_n.jpg
X1 owners will be pleased to lean that a new firmware update is available for their handset. The new firmware promises various performance boosts with the main thrust being responsivness, which the update is apparently going to improve. We also see some improvements to other areas of the handset like the keyboard backlight, which will see its brightness increased. Reception is also improved and the handset's messaging capability is given some treatment too. Good news all round for X1 owners!
Mobilemaster, 03 Jun 2009Look, the Xperia X1 is made by HTC, wait to see the X2, coz will be made by SE Japan, or Foxco... moreNo, X2 is Made by Sony co. Japan. Some pictures spotted with web sites,
Had the X1 phone for a month now, previous phone was a Nokia N73 (used Nokia for 16 years) so the X1 took some getting used to. I’m impressed with the telephone software, it is easy to look up and phone contacts, and also to look at dialled, missed and received calls, the Windows mobile is also good. General operation is smooth and responsive, the keyboard is very handy, and the display is crisp and clear which makes the phone a pleasure to use. The WIFI & GPS also works very well, I installed the GARMIN mobile software which transforms the phone to a satellite navigation device, very nice phone!
Camera - 70% Good
Phone - Big and heavy
Performence - Good especially the internet
Interface - 40% User Friendly
Gps - It doesnt have no gps, you have to buy it
All Round - Only worth it if you want somthing purelly for business.

Anonymous, 28 May 2009"it takes to use one to speak about one."
for those haters of the xperia, back off. youre... moreCouldnt have said it better. As of the moment, I am on the lookout for high caliber phones and i'm quite torn between XE1, Omnia i900 or the latest Iphone. Lately, i've been spending HOURS on this website as recommended by a local cellphone shop & as much as i like this website, i can't help but get irked of all the useless erratic comments and/or extremely bad grammar. One phone equals thousands of unfiltered opinions that wastes too much time for the readers. I hope they do something about this.
i want to buy a mobile of this range and so i am confused with nokia e90 and sony xperia x1. which one will be better?
hi guys...can it be expanded to 32 GB? the memory card slot...is it supported? or does its OS need to be upgraded first..?
i need the one has larger memory..anyone can help?

can anyone of the users of this phone tell me truely how is the camera and photo quality of this phone plz...cause me too im thinking of purchasing this phone...but i saw some of tou in here complaining about the camera of the phone
joe, 31 May 2009hi all...
i'm seriously considering buying this phone (i'm fom europe, so i will not have to ... moreHi Buddy,
I have bought this phone. It did cost me a fortune (35 K INR) but I am very very very happy with it. The battery life is good (I am a heavy user - lots of calls, listening to songs and web-browsing - but still need to recharge only every second day), the display is fantastic. Some people have been complaining about the weight, but personally I believe the weight has a good feeling to it and gives the handset that extra sturdiness.
The only drawback - so far - is that the external speaker is not loud enough. All in all, I shall rate the Xperia a 9.5/10! A must have for SE fans and WM lovers.
PS: I have not tested the 3G features as 3G is yet to come to India!
i have one of my own...its awesome i really love it! my dream phone but only 1 comment...about its camera. when the subject is moving it cant capture clearly. note: if ur gna use its camera options,make sure your subject wont move or even breathe for at least 5 seconds.
