I got my Xperia yesterday in India for 41k ( Around 500 quid ).
My first expericence about this is Mind Blowing. It's a very good phone with very good built ( Brushed Steel ) and finish is top notch all around.
The Arc Slider is beautiful and the keyboard works flawlessly.
The Display is the best, the clarity is very very good.
Battery is Good as of now ( This was one of my concerns ) but with every passing hour it's bringing a sigh of relief to me.
The Wi-Fi & Bluetooth & GPS work brilliantly. It is one of the most advanced & fully loaded phones till now.
The Camera is brilliant - I took a few photos & the Auto Adjust feature is smooth.
Overall I love it till now, A full review will be posted later.
GSMARENA - Why still no review ??
I just got my phone last week. One word to describe it. AMAZING!!!
It took me some time to get familier with WInMo but I managed. The building quality is great. Solid and beautifull. I choosed the silver one which is breath taking. The keyboard is a joy to use which is much better than e90. the best part of the phone the screen. When I play a high quality video on it, it seemed like a HD screen. I still have alot of details to go through.
I saw alot of people trying give a bad image about x1, but simply if you are a technical guy and can handle WInMo then x1 is your phone. Otherwise, search for any other toy that suits you.

i only consider goes to WM phone if thet solve:
1. batterylife problems(as bisness organiser i suppose the duration of battery at least 4 days)
2. lag / hang problems
i like SE for they consider the most quality usage phone out of compatitor...they keep testing and solving WM problems for years...
microsoft WM sucks...hope andriod catching up faster to come up acceptable and compatable OS phone for bisness user phone.
My X1's working fine its now almost a month when i took it from axiom. The battery gave some problems early on but now it works fine. The software is stable & cool WM6 applications make it more interesting, sound is a bit low but doesnt matter. But mobile phone companies instead of improving with technology are getting worse day by day. Like one of my friend a nokia user took me to get a phone from dxb he went for an N85 which had a faulty speaker out of the box. E66 had some problem with the screen after plugging the memory card. Now he got a 5800 which seems to be stable. Sound quality & battery life is dropping as new features are being introduced.
is the internet free like wifi or something or is there one that you gotta pay for monthly?
yes i see that it says wifi but i wana make sure
this phone is really nice but way out of the priceline for a cell phone
need help how you set the clock on se x1 from mlitary time to12hr format and how to change the calendar format pls help
No need for English. X1 is so great and intuitive that you can easily use it even in Chinese language.
X1 is great.
I think people expectations are too high.
Humanity lived perfectly without cell phones for thousands of years. Missing a few calls due to low ring volume should not be a reason notto buy this excellent phone.
People keep complaining about poor reception, I had the same experience but so what.
Lost connections just a sign of that you have been on the phone for too long - and if it is your boss? Well he or she should learned that for you having an X1 is real important.
Anyway, he or she should prove that that was X1ś fault. You should just claim that you have a N... and since he/she probably has the same brand he/she will be understandable.
Well, battery problems?
Yes, it is widely reported. But, who cares anymore?
It is winter now. So some heat is actually not so bad. The decreased talk-time is just a benefit - enjoy your life and do not hang on the phone.
So, as we know all phones have some disadvantages.
and if we look at a phone for long time or listen to the fans and reps here we all can finally realize that all the disadvantages we initially complained about actually great advantages.
We should never ever decide things permanently -we should keep our mind open because you never know when you realize thatyou were just so wrong.
All the fans and company reps here just somuch more experienced here than I am - no wonder they see thing so much better.
Reliability, performance, features etc. are all relative - and you never know what is actually good for you!
Someday missing a call may save your life, happiness - do not be a smart .... - trust life and buy the X1!
Happy Holidays Everyone! :)
I have this phone but it was not in english. Please how can i change it to english.
