No problems wt so ever. Also battery life is really good even after 1.5 months.
And using it is not hard at all. This was my 1st windows mobile and i had my share of confusions as well but after getting it and snooping around the web a bit I am learning to use it to its potential.
I can guarantee that you, as a new user, will love upgrading and finding out new things abt X1 everyday.
I m still discovering it myself :P
Aeolian, 28 Jan 2009Chk out this forum.
Has a separate section for SE X1 :D
u'll love it.
Ooopppss forgot to paste the link :P
Macky - To be able to download all available panels, your SIM card should be internet-capable as you can download all panels straight from XPERIA X1. Just use the Internet Explorer or Opera Browser, you will go directly to sonyericsson website and from there you can install the rest of the panels.
xperia is nt gd da case craks n dpad is loose plus paint peels of n dat plus wifi dnt wrk n either dose da reception it proberly da mst expencive paperwieght in da wrld
The good news is that you can set up the Xperia to receive emails just like a Blackberry would.
Hi..i have this phone too and i am so happy that i purchased it..i agree that the camera is not as good as the camera of my ex k810i, but its still good.The softkeyboard is not really thumb-sized and its quite difficult to use, but i still love it..
guys, can u help me install additional panels or software to my phone? i really dont know how to do it or where i can go to to install such softwares..
I am so confused i ahve done so much looking around I need to know wether or not the experia has good battery life after like a month or two??
is it realy hard to work and set pannels and stuff like that? any info would be much appreciated thanks.
I just bought X1 for a week, found out that its dpad area is prone to peel off on the edges. My suggestion is please do not exert to much fingernail pressure when working on the dpad area. Making the built quality questionable for a premium pda
avinersan, 27 Jan 2009more mpx on a small sensor is actually a bad thing ! - the more dense the pixels are on a give... moreHi avinersan, you have added another dimension to my post - the size of the image sensor.
I was trying to say the same thing - that a 3.2mp is not necessarily poor (unlike what most people think). I use my phone's camera only if I dont have access to my DSLR or my compact, and mostly set at 2mp 'coz as you said, higher mpixel pics will take longer to process in the phone (camera).
What people should remember is that however good a phone's camera is, it is not a replacement for a regular digital camera. In fact it can not compete even with a low-end ultracompact camera.
But on the other hand, when you dont have any other camera on you, the phone's camera is the best one. It's better to take a not-so-good picture of an important/memorable moment, than to not take a picture at all.
So people, please stop complaining about the X1's camera only because it's a 3.2mp.
avinersan, 27 Jan 2009more mpx on a small sensor is actually a bad thing ! - the more dense the pixels are on a give... moreYou are right, chip high mega pixels cams are worse and useless when setting them for their highest resolutions.
more mpx on a small sensor is actually a bad thing ! - the more dense the pixels are on a given surface (and in this case as with all mobiles it's a very small surface) the less light is captured (for example a compact camera with 6mpx lets in less than half the light in comparison to a full frame 5d at the exact same settings)
and 8 mpx on a phone isn't a real resolution (if you go to 100% you get a lot of blur and there isn't fine detail at all (if you interpolate a photo you gate the same results almost ))
there are cameras that obtain in 2mpx a lot more detail than a 12 mpx compact camera (not even phone)
ps:a 24 inch 1920x1200 monitor may display only about 2mpx (1920x1200=2.304.000 pixels (2.3 mpx) it only maters if that's a good quality 2mpx photo or not (of course, for cropping ,editing you need more... but who does that with a mobile phone ?)
so more mpx = more processing = less light,lower quality (not even at base iso are this cameras capable of offering 8mpx becouse of the low quality sensors (by the way i have lenses that are worth thousand of $ and don't offer a lot more than 12mpx so do the math ( canon 70-200 f2.8 is for example)

The X1 comes with 3 months trial of Wayfinder. But you could go for TomTom too. I have TT6 installed on my X1 and it works great. The GPS gets a lock fairly quickly too.
Is there any application available similar to Nokia Maps i.e. Guided Navigational System - which can be installed on SE Xperia X1? Any help shall be highly appreciated.
Actually am an old SE user, but inbetween switched from P910i to Nokia and just got back to SE again - google maps doesn't help much in guided navigational system - something must be there!
coolinbysound, 26 Jan 2009it can´t be such a good display with only 65k colors... i even dare to say that it sucksI bought it after all the research i did....after all i had to spent big bucks. I believe X1 is the best / most good looking phone in the market....no doubt.
I agree with Chris. I bought X1 last week and it's been an eye candy.
Very attractive phone for those who are into big phones. I THINK IT IS THE MOST GOOD LOOKING PHONE IN THE MARKET
