The speakers could be better - much better.
The volume is very low!
The reception also very unreliable besides the OS.
The Biggest High-Tech Flops Of 2008

That is like the chevy is a good car except the engine! :))
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.˝
people who say this phone's performance is shacky . . .
they are wrong.
Performance is perfect and when it comes to sofware support, it supports everythin since it is a windows mobile.i am auser and i ran all sorts of third party softwares which other phones cant run.
So if you cant make the phone do something then it's not the phone's fault... it's your lack of knowledge.

The X1 performence very shacky.
For some reason the software (or hardware?) has much more problems than other WinMo phones.
Being one of the best can be said for any model since the number of models are few.
I think HTC was smart not to create a competition for its models and SE was fool to contract HTC.
X1 is just a disasteras and a big loss for SE.
jefry.........have u used voice recorder??I cant find it ..........dose the phone has or not?
Hi..i had an x1 couple of weeks now and i've been satisfied with all the features and the only thing was how to activate the program which was downloaded thru the phones.I have downloaded the "panel" thru the phone and it was already done and saved in the document in the device,the only thing i do not know how to run it on the phone.Plse anyone,tell me
is there a voice recorder in the menu or not?? I cant find it .i need it immediately.

Infact i go as far to say it's the complete opposite. The x1 is aimed at an niche market and in this market it is one of the best.
Yes I agree!
X1 is totally outdated.
battery is weak
software is too buggy and the reception is unpredictable
HTC made model and now SE swears that HTC will never make another SE model.
I guess not because SE is too happy with the quality.
Its a great phone for those with the time to learn how to use it. Mines been fully functional and intuitive and easy to use. But you have to enjoy the detail.

Hi, been looking on the forum fro opinions on the X1. Can anyone tell me what the actual call reception is like. Do you hear the person you are talking to ok and do they hear you ok. Is it loud and clear enough. Thanks
the last couple of days I have been playing around with what could arguably be the best Windows Mobile phone in business – Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X1. From the packaging to the diminutive USB charger to the sleek finish of the device itself, the whole X1 experience is flawless. It is a well-designed smartphone that is very well-engineered. It is no different than Sony VAIO laptops or Bravia TVs, and as such it’s no surprise that it’s expensive: It comes with a very comfortable slider keyboard, great connectivity options (WiFi, 3G, Quad-band GSM etc.) and is a multimedia powerhouse. The phone comes with a 3-inch WVGA display with resolution of up to 800 X 480 pixels screen, which means it can play back videos in almost DVD quality and makes it easy to play 3D mobile games. I love the photos taken by the 3.2 megapixel camera and the music playback is solid and clear. X1 has a pretty decent battery life — and yes, it beats the pants off the iPhone 3G battery. It got about 8 hours on AT&T’s 3G network — ahead of my iPhone — but lagged the Android G1. However, it had better GSM standby and talk times. But again, battery usage differs from person to person. One thing I hate about the device is that it lacks a lot of built-in memory, but the good news is that it can take up to 32 GB in a memory card.
What will surprise you the most is that this phone is powered by Windows Mobile 6.1. Despite the apprehension of using Windows Mobile , I found myself liking this device, which shows that with some creativity and lots of imagination, Windows Mobile can stand up to assaults from Apple’s iPhone, RIM’s ( s rimm) Blackberry and Google’s Android. Of course Windows Mobile means that the phone syncs with Microsoft Exchange over the air. It can read documents, spreadsheets and presentations natively.
I was surprised by how nimble the phone feels — I have yet to use another Windows Mobile phone that comes close to X1. The device gives you many ways to interact with the contact touch, full QWERTY keyboard, 4-way key and optical joystick navigation and panels. It is the panels which are awesome and function almost like how the applications are accessed on the iPhone.
