Had this phone for a week X1A silver. Last 2 phones were the HTC Cruise then the Samsung Omnia. I must say the screen is not only beautiful and allows readability of small script (loading full internet page, going through ppt presentations), but it is very responsive compared to the Omnia: takes minimal touch input to respond and scrolling is smooth, compared to occasional repetitive inputs and buggy scrolling on the Omnia. Having full US 3G is now awesome! (Omnia does not have - at lease the GSM version). Phone is indeed fast and the keyboard is oh so welcoming. I thought i didnt need a keyboard when I was using the Omnia, but a keyboard simplifies everything. Panels are cute .. but SPB panel is all that I need. However I can see the appeal: one day you may use the phone mostly for music so you set that panel, etc. Don't get me wrong, Omnia is an awesome phone, it holds the 16GB memory and 5MP camera over the Xperia; but the screen, US 3G, and keyboard outweighed the Omnia.

PS. thanks for telling about ONC because I would have thought you are an Oncology Certified Nurse.
I thought engineers just get a diploma from a University like MIT or Caltech. I did not know that in England there is a .... engineering course .... with an exam.
2002??? Who can remember that?
May be old people who can not remember 5 min. (ST- short term memory) but remember 2002 :)
Well, hopefully one of your follower will translate your answer, but I guess it did not include a reference.
As far as anecdotal evidence - we all had enough.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2008I need some more education :)))
Few weeks ago a rep was giving this advice:
- to improve ... morenow i know your joking the info your after was been discussed in 2002 as far as i can remember,,the t68 used a lithium polmer battery and studies were already out that these new type of batterys do not need 16hrs charge like ni/cads or Nickel metal hydryde and the lithium cells get broken in after a charge/discharge cycle of around 5-7 times and peak around 100-200 charges and decay after that.This not set in stone truth as the way peaople use batterys varies tremendously..M y first fone used nickel metal hydyde back in 1998 with phillips yet in 2000 when i upgrtaded to moto v2288 it came with 3 ni/cad batterys. ni/cad = nickel cadmiun in case you do not know and are just about banned now i hope cause cadmium is toxic to humans and under recharge or abuse the cadmium could cause kidney failure etc,,lithium is still toxic except in mental conditions such as yours where it can be helpfull but in the batterys its fairly enclosed and stable but can set on fire giving off toxic lithium fumes..
RAM or random access memory using nand chips or whatever slightly bend over time and thats how cops etc and forensics can gather data after a porn raid or airplane disaster black box as the experts study these bends a somehow ressurect the data..IF you store an mp3 tune on bit of ram over and over again the o and 1 bend in a certain way tat the chips get used to so can learn data as well as cookies and some things that you continually do are learnt by these factors..When you by a new memory card it is fresh and should workwell but constant re-formatting bends and unbends these logic gates using NAND and eventually memory cards wear out,,RAM memory must use some different faster memory but i only know of or,,nor,,and or nand types of logic gates and truth tables but theres MRAM,,EEPROM ALLSORTS,,its complex but was covered in my O.N.C. in electronic and electrical engineering exam..Thats all i can vaguely remember fron 6 yrs ago they probably have advanced more but do not know..
I;m thinking of buying the x1 online and would like some opinions as to which one looks better, the black or the silver.Is the silver a shiny silver or brushed metal and the black a matt black or shiny. Any advice would be great .Thanks
I need some more education :)))
Few weeks ago a rep was giving this advice:
- to improve data access, memory recall you need to use the phone for a few days - saying that RAM will get used to the large amount of data.
- these days, Li-Po battery gets better as we deplete it and recharge it few times.
Any reference about it?
Anything from SE or other official paper on this?
let us know! :)
otherwise we may start looking like promoting a myth ;)

Anonymous, 17 Dec 2008You know what I think ? People do know what is good for them and they can appreciate quality -... moreLook I do not argue with you ! :)
We are on the same side! :)
You misunderstand me.
If people would know what is good (as I have learned from the pros here) SE would outsell N...a, Sa...g etc. But they do 5:1 so why?
Because people just go for... and do not .... you know.
SE X1 is just an unappreciated model.
People just picking on problems like 65K color, battery etc. instead of seeing the big picture.
As it is said here over and over again: “X1 rocks“ - no other information/argument needed, case closed,
(((You know what I think ? People do know what is good for them and they can appreciate quality - no shame on that, that's why they are buying SEX1 like crazy.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 rocks !))))

Lifes easier now thanks to my skimming past the usual lied comments..How can i find the data usage or data counters cannot find any,,how do i back up stuff to memory like n82 you just back up fone memory,,i think its a case of copy and paste whole lot to memory is the only way..Is their a f-secure type firewall and anti-virus for xperia,,
Voda uk has gone from 5 games up to 11 now so apps,,games etc are now starting to filter thru for xperia and because bigger better resolution mobiles are here and on the way manufacturers will have to start upgrading their stuff to fit these newer screens. Really getting excited about xperia and future smarfones because just recorded carry on camping on sandisk v-mate video recorder at qcif mpeg4 at 15fps and it seems to upscale it even tho it only fills vga part of screen not wvga but at non pixellated picture perfect video..In future better facilities will come along so that all works at this new resolution screens of the past will look so bad we will wonder how we put up with them..
Saw lg cookie on way home in action at carfone and looks a great toch screen for £99..
man this phone is wel good , i lost my keys the other day and it found them with gps , i was runnin late and it mad me toast and tea with out even asking
bril it was , probs do the dish's as well cant wait till my wife finishes with me god know what it will do then xxx peace love and phones are sooooo coool
I just got the SE X1 Xperia this morning and it is just absolutely great. The interface is user friendly and the speed by which applications open is quite fast. Connecting to the internet is a breeze as well. The qwerty keyboard could be a little bigger, but given the size of the phone I think it is worth it. Overall I think that this phone is a beauty while having the features that I need and want.
come on...where is the review?
i like this phone but I'm postponing buying it till the review to help me choose between xperia and touch hd..
hope the review will be available before Christmas.
