The original Vodafone firmware was awful, hence poor wifi and other small niggles. A generic xperia has the best wi-fi range of any mobile phone (as reported in tracy & matts blog.) Peeling paint? that's news to me!
xperia is a nice phone... nice wifi just install a 3rd party app (forgot the name)
lots of useful apps
bad thing about xperia is the external speakers. and paint wears off fast.
yeah right xperia is crap,it turns itself of coz it cant handle BLOATED windows crap os i had 1 n its crap,wifi dosnt work n reception is sh!t n the case is made realy cheap n thats why it cracks n the paint comes off no wonder networks r givin it free coz its crap
All new high tech devices have some software glitches. Nokia's, HTC's, Samsung and so on. It has to be said, the X1 has very few, especially for a WinMo unit. @ Mstl I'm afraid your posts lack credibility because A) you repeat the same thing time and time again and b) You only ever mention the negatives experienced by the minority of x1 owners.

X1 profit? what profit?
HTC makes it - extra cost
almost immediately it was available for FREE wit ha cheap contract
sold in very low quantity
You have an idea how much ... provider pays for the X1 if they can give it away for free?
with an 18 mo cheap contract
Yes, may be you are correct; all the quality problems, software bugs, cracked cases, etc. got nothing to do with HTC and SE divorce.

The Xperia X1 could have been released immediately after the touch pro but HTC demanded it was held back. HTC eat in to xperia profits...i'm sure HTC didn't appreciate seeing SE do a superior job on the software either! Xperia X1 ROCKS.
copy and paste the song from sd card or phone into ringtones folder, it will appear in your notifications/sounds where the pre-loaded ringtones are.
˝The next Sony Ericsson XPERIA won’t be made by HTC˝
I wonder why?
Can you think of any reasons?
(Yeah, it was really smart decision.)

Some people just can not take the facts, or other people´s opinion.
I guess it is hard to comprehend:
˝Post your opinion about Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1˝
I respect other´s view :)
If you like it (X1) no argument here :)
Enjoy your phone and I encourage you to buy many - a whole box! ;)
Nice present to everyone.
)-(although anybody can get it for free with a cheap contract)
I am also disappointed with the performance.
It is much worst than other phones with Winmo, I guess some engineering bug was overlooked.
It was nice to remind me :)
Yes, the Wifi reception also poor.
I understand some people just not looking for reliable, and decent performance.
X1 may be for you.
It never hurts to try it and if you do not like it you can take it back (without restocking or other fees).
Any news about X5?
"how are you going do with it?"
if you cant speak english, "Why bother with it?"
and maybe where to set another ringtone is like harder to find then the music player for example (and it should).
Megadeth86, you bought a smart phone and doesn't know how to change a ring tone? Why bother with it? if you don't even know how to change a simple ring tone, what about other functions in the phone, how are you going do with it?
Does anyone know how to put customisable ringtones in the Xperia, or do i have to keep the horrible ones that are pre loaded, I am talking MP3's as ringtones? Please help
@uSMm - I agree with you. I just got my XPERIA a week ago and I was really amazed of its capability. I have not encountered any problems up to now whatsoever. It works just fine. This is the best WinMo I've ever had and SE is just wonderful. I have downloaded all the extra XPanel and really gorgeous. Internet is really fast, Opera 9.5 browser is also fantastic. SEXPERIA X1 is selling like hotcake in the Middle East especially in Saudi Arabia. When I bought my unit, we are 9 who bought XPERIA at the same time and all of us has preferred the black one looks really sexy.
All new smart phones must come with Dual SIM capibility from now onwards if they want to succeed.
I played with the 5800, it's nothing more than a regular s60 that has become touch screen and a little bit wider screen. X1 is far more superior even to the upcoming n97, with all the programs, tweaks etc. possible with WinMos. X1 is definitely the best mobile phone right now, buy it now if you can afford. It's a purchase you won't regret.
