I find it extraordinary that mstL can state xperia has been given preferential 'treatment'. Nokia pay journalists/reviewers flights,hotel accommodation etc etc hence the totally biased reviews on most nokia devices. Anyway the Xperia is for the tech savvy,get it if you enjoy advanced computing otherwise buy simple symbian or java based cells.
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2009and you are still counting? :)))what a shame on you. how can you say things like that and still saying "are you counting". can you grow up and forget to act like a stupid ???
The negative/immature comments are coming from symbian fanboys.That tells me something!
hi jo, in answer to your question.
GPS is just your standard sat nav signal like what you would get in a tomtom device...
A-GPS (A means assisted) is where your mobile will connect to the internet at the same time your GPs module connects to the satalite to get the data for maps so that if yourr GPS signal drops then you will still recieve voice and map data via the internet connection...
hope that helps
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970obviously you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about, nokia n95 was useless and runs on symbian. that phones been out for nearly 3 years and nokia still cant get it to work right. if you look at any nokia handset that runs on symbian (which is a good majority) they have repeated faults and for soem reason nokia cant find a way to fix them
winmo is not just about word docs and spreadsheets, you can get all the apps that iphone and symbian offer but you have more connectivity and sync options as you can directly sync it with ()% of the worlds computers without any problems....
just because you dont know how to work them and are only capable of using basic cheap software doesnt mean that everything else is crap.....
there is no such this as a superior manufacturer....they are all equal....each has good and bad points......its what they call the mobile market....making what the public wants.....
do some research before you start posting stupid comments.....
azi, 19 Mar 2009it sucks... neva eva use it.. i cnt evn hear the ring whn i get a kol.. maybe you should learn to use a winmo device
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2009I can not fully agree that X1 is the worst SE phone ever. But certainly if we consider the pri... morei am getting sick of pathetic people who have no idea how to work or make the phone work putting the phone down.
the reason there was so many problems is because sony wanted to try and catch up with the ever changing mobile market and like any other mobile manufacturer they decided to use the public as guinea pigs to get the problems out of the handset so they could fix them....
if you truely knew how to use a winmo device or smartphone in general you would not be making such hard judgements....
i myself had a faulty handset but with a software update (which ever mobile manufacturer offers as a safety guard incase any problems occur) the phone works fine....as for the battery most people do not relise they have to disconnect the internet manually when they have finished and so thus the battery drains due to a constant connection to the internet.....funnily enough just like a laptop computer or general smartphone.....
next time before you jump the gun have a think about what you are putting and maybe look back at bigger flops like maybe the nokia n95 / n95 8gb and n96.....which are all still faulty and they are all the same product....oh well too bad nokia.....
also all you fan boys waiting for this glorious so called saviour you call the n97....you will all be very disappointed...nokia cant even create a full buttoned handset with sybian software that works correctly nevermind a touchscreen handset with a full qwerty that offers hardlt any new features that havent been used in previous n series....again oh well poor nokia....
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2009you are crazy,1000 times repeated posting the same commentsand you are still counting? :)))
I own one and my experience with both the phone and the support that is offered has proved on thing for me. NEVER MOVE AWAY FROM HTC.
The update software which has to be installed and run from a computer does not function correctly. Cannot get my phone to boot the way they state.
The battery life went from excellent to horrid in less than 6 months, could understand over the span of 12-18 months not less than 6.
The support both via email, they don't respond quickly if they even do respond, to a phone line where they charge you on a minute basis for issues related to thier issues.
Hi X1 owners,
Im planning to buy an X1 but after seeing the model in an SE shop, I noticed that X1 unit could not create subfolders in the SMS function. Similar to any win app, I was expecting I could create new folders for my different SMS - whether from my family, from work, from frends, etc. Would any of you guys know if X1 can create subfolders for SMS?
My other question is, can X1 copy or move SMS from SIM to the mobile or from X1 to the SIM card? My P1i and P990i can both do the said functionality but X1 model in the SE shop could not do the same thing & the sales person wasnt sure if there was this function.
Please share your experience on this. Thanks in advance guys!!!!
--> Hope to be an X1 owner soon :D
If you all insist a wm device may be the X1 is one of the best. However, I have to say that symbian device outsmart wm device in every sense. My personal experinece only.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I can not fully agree that X1 is the worst SE phone ever. But certainly if we consider the price and the anticipation it can feel like that for many people.
No wonder that X1 was selected:
˝X1 is one of the biggest flop of 2008!˝
˝It may have been the most eagerly awaited telephone of the year... and it may well have been the most disappointing telephone of the year, too. Introduced in February with (almost) operational prototypes, the phone has only just become available in stores. Its “revolutionary” Windows Mobile interface was not only slow, but it also wasn’t any more functional than other operating systems from HTC, Samsung or Asus. And since there’s only one Windows Mobile model from Sony Ericsson, developments for the proprietary interface, quite naturally, are scarce. What was supposed to be the ultimate smartphone is at best only passable, and at worst a total failure.˝
Dean, 19 Mar 2009"xperia drops cals n wifi dont work n widows reboots n is dead slow basicaly windows is crap n... moreYes, unfortunately X1 really drops calls and WinMo runs really badly. For some reason X1 runs winmo worst than other models.
No wonder SE switched to Symbian with the Idou.
jo, 19 Mar 2009whats the diff between a-gps and gps? google and wikipedia all usable tolls for you :)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I do not support calling names here.
SE fans and reps are also people.
I have written months ago that SE will get out of the cell phone business.
They have been losing money for long time.
The recent phones are just lousy.
Of course on paper before release all look good but once they are released the story changes.
Sorry to see SE leave the market.
We need more competition. Korean corporations taking over the industry.
Poor engineering, lack of quality control and limitless greed can not survive this industry.
