xperia is a peace of junk i had1 n it drops calls n case cracked dont fink about using wifi coz it dant work mstl is rite it a waist of money
Please note that the X1 available in most countries (X1i = i for international, as opposed to X1a for Americas) does NOT support UMTS850 although it does show UMTS850 listed in the config. GSMArena should change the spec to mention that 850hZ 3G support is available only in the American version! I bought this phone here in Thailand to be used with DTAC which uses UMTS850 and got scr*wed because of that...

I am trying to make up my mind if I am going to buy this phone, or the C905a in the next 2 weeks or not. Now knowing that I can add You Tube to it makes it easier. Thanks again!
If your are upgrading from P990i then do not go for the XI. The X1 is no match by specification features and handling for P990i
Do not be fooled by the word "windows", you would be better go for HTC which is amore sophisticated and advanced form of X1 with much lower price
i want to ask u guys about the battery life is it good or bad? Some poeple says lasts one day with normal use
@GgKp - thank you for your reply. However, in that link you provided, once you open, it will give you the site of XDA-Developers. Do I need to register first before I can download any of these applications properly? Or I can download them (a running application) without registering. Thanks for your advise.

@GgKp - I have copied the required applications (regarding YouTube) but once you are going to open the copied application, it does not appear any installation command. Could you please let me know step-by-step how to copy the application from the link you provided and save the application temporarily to PC. I do know how to install application to WinMo phone provided that the application is ready for installation. I really want YouTube in my XPERIA. Thanks for your help.

I have heard that you can not. If not, can this be corrected with a download or such? And if so, Can you put a full flash player on the phone? For example, to get a 'true' web browsing feel? Or are you stuck with flash lite? Thank!
This phone is the best, any bad comment or review about this phone only from a Nokia lovers
i love SE. But why it can't produce a phone that features a class 32 GPRS? (very useful for areas w/o 3G connection)
The X1 is a touchscreen phone, and it's got one of the biggest and best screens ever seen on a mobile phone. At 3 inches across, it's almost as big as the iPhone 3G's 3.5 inch screen, but here's the thing: whereas the iPhone 3G has 480 x 320 pixels, the Xperia has a massive 800 x 480 pixel resolution: that's 2.5 times as many pixels. Big isn't always better, but when it comes to touchscreen phones, it definitely is. As well as providing a brilliant platform for the touch-operated user interface, the display also offers a superb environment for web browsing, video streaming, photo viewing, etc, etc.
A lot of thought has gone into the user interface design of the Xperia. As well as the finger-operated touchscreen, there's an optical joystick and a navigation key. To use the optical joystick you brush your finger over the touch-sensitive key to move the mouse pointer on the screen. The navigation key is a conventional 4-way key that can be pressed to select an option. Handwriting recognition with a stylus is available as an additional text-input method. But the X1 holds another secret within: a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard. With the keyboard in position and the display in widescreen landscape mode, the phone resembles a mini-laptop and offers a lot of the functionality of a real laptop - but more of this later. For the moment, we'll just say that with all the different input options available, every user should be able to find a way of working that meets their needs. This is not a difficult phone to use, although its advanced options do present something of a learning curve.
The phone feels very solid too. It uses a premium metal body and feels like it could take some knocks. But the solidity and wealth of features leads to some bulk. It's a big phone, and quite thick too, at 17mm. And it certainly is heavy. In fact it's the heaviest smartphone currently in the shops by our reckoning. At 158g it weighs more than twice as much as the Sony Ericsson W890i for example. It's not a machine for wimps, but it manages to look very nice despite its porkiness. It's available in a choice of Black or Silver, both of which look nice and businesslike.
The user interface is designed around a "Panel interface". Each panel provides an environment customised to a specific activity, such as web browsing, messaging, playing music, etc. We don't think that this is quite as revolutionary as Sony Ericsson claim, but it looks nice, works well and we have no issues with it.
The X1 is a Windows Mobile smartphone. Windows Mobile has matured a lot since its early days and is now a robust and powerful OS. It's also used in the Samsung Omnia, which has proven itself to be a very stable and robust smartphone. Running Windows Mobile offers several advantages. As well as being stable and fast, it's a familiar environment for PC users, and brings a lot of familiar functionality from the desktop to the mobile. For instance, the X1 uses Outlook Mobile as its email application, and it uses Office Mobile to let you view and edit Office attachments. Business folk accessing their corporate mail via an Exchange mailserver can stay synchronised using Exchange ActiveSync. We hesitate to say that the X1 can match a BlackBerry for power and ease-of-use, but it's arguably true.
Drama, 17 Jan 2009Ray, I have had a look at the Handango site in regards to the Microsoft Voice Command, but ... moreYes Drama, MVC works fine on my X1. It's a cool software with a little memory requirement. The only thing I found that does not work on my X1 is the caller name announcement. Just read on Handango that this only works for Windows Mobile build prior to 15097.3.0.0. Hope this helps.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2009shud i buy it ?? if nt wat shud i buy If I say yes would you buy it? If I said no buy the 1209 would you do that?
Why are you here asking people what phone you should buy? Like they will give you an honest unbiased answer?
Go and read about the phones features and see if you like them. If you do read reviews of that phone and see what that says. Or come here and read what people have to say about their experiences with the phone, that's what this thread is for.
Adie, 18 Jan 2009As I have time to waste the last few days I read through some posts. This is my observation.
... moreThank you for your informative and interesting post.
It's good to see quality reviews, without broken English, bad punctuation or bad grammar.
