Just got mine 3 days ago from amazon.com for $845(pre-order a month ago). The phone is very solid build and feel expensive. Mine is europien version as the manual in the box gave me a hint. Comes with 4GB MicroSD class2 (relatively slow transfer rate). Swap it with 8GB MicroSD class6 (very fast). Use with att wireless 3G. Very surprise that my HSDPA connection is faster than house wi-fi (comcast internet). When full charge, leave 3G on all day and browse internet for 1-2 hrs with 6 calls (1.5 hrs), battery remain is 8 out of 10 scale. I project that it can easily be kept on before next charge for 4-5 days with decent use. But when using wi-fi, battery last only 5 hrs. Clearly wi-fi drains all the battery juice. This is my first WM phone. Took me 1-2 hrs to get use to and learn how to use all the functionalities. Iphone user and short temper people might find WM unattractive and challenge due to the learning curve. But I don't mind on this point bc WM is way more powerful, flexible, and configurable. Screen is superb. Don't let the 56K spec fools you. It's one of the best crisp and sharp screen I ever seen on a mobile device. Compare side by side with HTC touch Pro at Fry's, xperia is simply on a different league (both screen and build quality, and yes I know that xperia is made by HTC). Also, don't let 3.2MP camera spec fools you. The picture is so clear and vibrant in good light condition (in dark it's not too good, but I can't blame it. since it will never be able to compete with the real DSLR camera anytime soon). One the same light condition, pictures are way much better than Iphone camera or some compact 6MP camera. You have to see it to believe it. All in all, I'm very happy with this phone. Go get one if you can afford it and don't care about the gimmick and hype of the Iphone3G.
brynn, 10 Dec 2008Now installed opera mini 4.2 its more better than 9.5 maybe cause i am used to it..Works great Hi Brynn, what are the differences between the two operas when using the X1? Why do you like the mini better?
The iphone was a game changing device, other platforms must envy its ease of use. Personally, I prefer WM but anyone can see that the iphone with the brilliant app store provides stiff competition..gone are the days when software developers concentrated on WM or silly Symbian. The iphone has some 10000 applications to choose from and because developers are making good money the app store software library will continue to flourish meanwhile symbian development
been up all nite as my xperia is due today by courier,got it voda online ..should be here in next 10hrs..have brand new 8gb card ready for it..whats this about 4 status lights please richard
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2008I do not need any video :)) I have used the X1.
It seems you decided to get it so go ahead... moreIf you do not want to change anyone's mind why the f*ck are you still here?Just repeating your pathet*c claims over and over again like a ret*rd, everyone can see what a low life you are and you are here just because your nokia is producing sh*t these days and really hurts you.
We don't care how much iphone have sold, its a toy and for immatures and show-off type people who just go for hype, as far as the functionality is concerned there is no comparison between Xperia and Iphone, Xperia wins hands down.
So just shut the f*ck up and get lost, go to your mommy and cry that nokia has failed you, or the best thing is that you just end your life..that would be something great, better for this world, nobody needs nobody will miss you, you are just a mentally sick bast*rd and you deserve to die, so do this world a favor, just hang yourself and die, your parents might get rid of that agony that they are responsible for bringing a piece of sh*t like you in this world. LOL
forgot ,only got about 12hrs with omnia about one day but with xperia getting two days work with a bitto spare..just love the screen its another bonus sincd that's what you look at most of the time
brill fone,so much customisation,all works but a little slow,I've upgraded from omnia @ keypad plus free spb make it more useable,I love it.mines black
Ooh dear...look at that N97, another plastic rubbish from Nokia trying to copy HTC and XPERIA design yet they can't even do it right and ended making such ugly looking device. Well at least some teenagers will love and be happy to use 'em for a few weeks before they break and be thrown to trash and have them buy another rubbish Nokia phone again to use for another few weeks. Nice business Nokia is running here for making such sales numbers...
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2008I am glad that some people are so satisfied with the X1 - honestly. At least a few , even if t... moremstL LOL to your super weak sorry arguments...doesn't matter which company is doing well or not, I don't buy phones over the company's financial statement, it's not like we're buying stocks for God's sake. Mercedes isn't doing well in their business overall for a while but I'll still buy it any day over some cheap tin can Honda, doesn't matter how their sales numbers look like. Same goes to Nokia and their plastic toys regardless of their numbers from selling overpriced rubbish. C'mon be a little smarter when making a point, at least you could pretend to sound smarter for a bit, than sorry LOL...
To Anonymous, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 or the Samsung i8510 INNOV8?
nick, 10 Dec 2008for some reason, the improper use of of "your/you're" really frustrates me!

I do not want to change your mind.
Any review can be bias. Many written by self-claimed net journalist without any tech background.
I always check the authors.
But, do not waist your time - see the unit and enjoy it after purchase.
Nokia's are cheap plastic toys with bad User-interface's and bulky!
Dont get N-Series phones, bad phones!

There are at least 3 independent reviews which are not positi... moreAs you can see, I posted some videos (You can see the actual performance there, I guess) and search results with the revies I mentioned.
Can you please post the 3 reviews you said?
The funny thing is, that this so called "known pro-reviewer" our loved mstL dude is always quoting (some guy of a hungarian mobiles homepage I've never heard before) wrote the same (It's a disappointment) about the N96 and I can't find mstL posting that hourly in the N96 section...
An other funny thing is, that he was posting against the X1 even half a year before it was released. I really wonder why he bought one (or so he says...) if he didn't like it from the start.
Knowing this all there is to say is:
Don't feed the troll
Just ignore his posts and keep posting real world experience with this device.
