It is obvious that work for Sony Ericsson, nobody listens to your garbage.

Why are people waiting for Gsmarena review??There are LOTS of reviews and in every review X1 stands out as the best right now.
What more do you need?
Great Battery Time(Much better than all WM mobiles right now)
Best Resolution(Much better than Nokia so-called 16m color screen)
Great Reception(Crystal Clear)
Fast Processor(multitasking is great)
Great Camera(Unless you are a professional Photographer..but is there ANY professional photographer who uses his mobile to take pictures even if its 8 MP??)
Plenty of RAM
What else do you need??just google it and see for yourself how great this set is. Even die hard nokia fans are turning towards it, Two of my hardcore nokia fan friends are planning to buy this set, they say that they have never seen such a beautifull screen ever in a nokia set. And every single person that have seen this mobile was mesmerized by this beauty, only d-m-b-o-s and noobs don't like it, like the two lunatics here who are so pathet*c that even when they can't buy anything than nokia 3310 but still keep coming here to post bullsh*t about the set even when they have never seen a real Xperia.
So stop wasting your time and just go for it, you will not be disappointed, even if you have never used a WM device,once you get used to it you will love it.
Xperia is the BEST!!!
Kulen, 20 Dec 2008sorry! may not go through all comments, but please let me know how strong is the flash of this... moremy n82 would light up my bedroom but this only stretches half way so its not pwerful i would say it would stretch about 1 meter..
sorry! may not go through all comments, but please let me know how strong is the flash of this X1. I asked because I see that it is not equipped with xenon or dual led. With single led flash, it is not strong at all, I assume. It is useless.

I meant to say that i cannot find track i.d. but their is the standard winmo word predict which is fairly useful,,their no graphic equaliser and s/e needs to get these options sorted in next update.

it's weird if none of the features you mention are available in the X1... did you bought it?
because if my memeory serve me well in Youtube.com i have seen the T9...& TrackID it's kind of available in every S.E. device...
i will be real surprise if S.E. didn't add these standard features & GSMarena didn't realize it.
I really hope the X1 review be GSMarena comes very soon.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i like the display but i wud not say its the best. toshiba used the same resolution a year earlier.
also i hv tested it and the touchscreen is not very sensitive. (altho yes it is sensitive for a presure sensitive touchscreen)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970U didn't mention qwerty keyboard and lot other stuff ... And i want officially prove not by people who are ... not a single word describe them.I had nokia 7710 which was great phone a bit slow processor and palm treo 750 which is most useful and people on this site still complain and saying everything bad to that phones ...I didn't have any problem with all phones i had (nokia 6600, nokia 7710, nokia n93i y i was fan of nokia not because its nokia because i found that phones was useful for me at that moment,palm treo 750 yea i go for windows mobile and i love it ).So if you ask me if i believe them ? I guess u know that answer,ONE BIG NO!And i am assuming why GSMarena didn't yet publish they review ... just assuming.
brynn, 19 Dec 2008Thanx revenant i was concerned that it would reset the lot and have to put apps back on xperia... moresome of the apps, when you install them, say they were intended for a previous version of WinMo, but most of them still work. A lot of apps don't work due to the WVGA resolution, as we know. If you head over to xda-developers.com you can download a free app which emulates a VGA screen (basically just cuts off all the pixels after 640) and it's completely safe, when you launch the app it asks whether you want 640 x 480 or 800 x 480. Might wanna check it out...

X1 is still the shit but if SE can't solve the UI issue they better have an impressive lineup 4 2009. otherwise I'll have 2 hang on 2 this baby a little bit longer.

Compare the functionality and Xperia wins hands down, that awful Iphone is so featureless that I am really amazed how can anyone compare it to Xperia, its like comparing Mercedes with Suzuki...
Don't talk about a set that you don't even own.
Xperia is WAY better than Iphone.
