C'mon GSMArena make a review from this and also put that it has a graphics accelerator chip made by ATI,as phonearena have said (no from who it was made,but other information says its from ATI)
There are some widely reported problems with the X1:
(yes, some of you may got a perfect unit , but not every body - please understand that ;)
1: Reception problems
2: Wifi problems
3: battery weak (probably due to RAM leakage)
4: case cracks
Manufacturing error /lack of QA
5:Software crash / needed hard reset
6: incompatibility with application
due to screen resolution
7: unit gets hot
8: low speaker volume
Not all units have all of these but one or two of these is enough to get the user dissatisfied with the X1.
But, if you are who do not care, or happened to have a perfect unit ;)
- this post is not for you!
Do not get worked-up :))))
SE - Nokia - HTC - Siemens - Samsung - LG....had them all....been the last 9months with HTC Touch Cruise WM and I find Windows Mobile great for business persons....I can issue quotations on my mobile and print it via bluetooth straight on the clients printer...keep specific folders with photos to show the clients...and much more..I can't wait to get my hands on Xperia...Seen the HTc Touch PRo again today but after a month of reviews and videos I think Xperia is definately better then Touch Pro, even the build quality is much better. Touch pro screen wobbles a lot, not to mention the resolution on the Xperia X1 and the fact it can be personalised with different panels, and that is a sure bonus for someone like me that changes my mobile every 6-9months...The Xperia is going to give me more xperiances with different panels and more will be available in the future for sure...

65K = Economical and natural
and Oh Yeah LOL!
Xperia X1 is free with contracts anyway! it depends on the CONTRACT TARIFF!
Its not Free Free, its all dependant on the contract tariff!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2008Dani thanks for your opinion - we respect it! :)
Of course, people who makes comments about... moreWho cares if it sells more!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LIKE WHAT I LIKE!, and i LOVE the Xperia! and Love the Xperia X1.
I Hate Nokia's becuase they are cheaply made and i HATE the Symbian user-interface.
Xperia X1 is a total ultimate phone! the best there is!
X1 is so great that it is given away for FREE!!! with contract!
JUst think about it:
How cheap has to be that it worth the provider to give it away FREE!!!
I think the provider gets it less than 250-300 USD!!!
otherwise there is no way since the contract is not too expensive.
BTW: Iphone etc. is out much longer and it is still not offered for FREE.
Think about it:
You pay/paid for a phone 800-900 USD (just very very recently) which is free or sold for 200 USD.
Hmmm. get it? :)))))
Dani thanks for your opinion - we respect it! :)
Of course, people who makes comments about the X1 obviously bought the phone. (many also returned it)
The fact is Dani most people disagree with you, but do not worry just try to understand it.
Symbian outsells WM 5:1 in general.
As far as Smarphones, SE can not even make the list.
Of course, there are some okay WM phones: HTC HD is doing pretty well.
Omnia sells good too.
I sincerely hope SE finally start making some decent phones. WE need higher level of competition.
Adiel...let them say what they want about X1, if what they are saying is the truth, that only a few people are buy X1, it means that we are only few with great minds and intellegent....let them say what they want...in the mean us X1 intellegent people continue enjoying a fantastic phone......GO SE
Well all im going to say here is ....I WOULDNT get Nokia at all, i hate their cheapness of build and battery life and i HATE the Symbian UI
I would pay the EXTRA Monye for any SE, becuase there worth every penny with their HIGH QUALITY Build and Excellent User-Interface, Sound quality, camera and most importantly the Telephony.
Oh yeah and theres NOT 1 Nokia like the Xperia X1 ......
Xperia X1 is the best Windows Mobile phone to date!
It has no competition becuase its so good!
Nokia makes phones for the masses, thats why therir so cheaply made!
you are arguing about the features of SE X1, the question is.....HAVE YOU OWN AN X1?
actually i have this phone...and its run perfect for a business...
try to buy first.....if you can afford.... if you cant...
then praise NOKIA ^^,
I translate it for you:
Apple outsold ALL WM models combined!!!!
That is not bad especially since there is only one current Apple model and several WM models by different company.
SE does not even make the list.
I hope X2 will do!
There is no need to advocate Nokia or Apple etc. :))))
Look at the recent NEWS:
˝Nokia is still king of the hill with 42.4% market share ....˝
˝The shocking number is the growth from Q3 2007 to Q3 2008 in Apple of 327.5%. ˝
while SE production DECREASED!!!! (Apple 327% UP!)
No wonder SE fans/Reps looking for girls and whoever to lean on pay the bills etc.
˝It is pretty shocking to me that the iPhone/Mac OS X operating system sales are greater than Windows Mobile given that there are so many different Windows Mobile devices and only two models of iPhones. Windows Mobile has also been around for quite some time. It looks like usability may be winning out over functionality and specifications.˝
Do you need more FACTS ??? :))))
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2008Oh boy... two things are hot for sure... My X1 and this forum.
BTW does any one know how t... moreYes, the X1 is a hot product.
it is so hot that actually the main purpose of the battery is to keep the temp. up.
But, do not worry - the reception is also lousy, so you do not have a chance to make or receive a call anyway. :)))
I am just joking ... ;)
Oh boy... two things are hot for sure... My X1 and this forum.
BTW does any one know how to change the language of my X1? Not everyone speaks English, you know...
Oh sh1t... I forgot... This is Windows Mobile not Symbian... I have to re-flash the phone, pay extra and hope that nothing goes wrong or else I am fvcked :)
CBUC1125, 08 Dec 2008I have had the North American X1A Silver for 2 weeks now. I ordered it on 11/23/08 from sonys... moreFinally some useful info. I didn't know about the panels disappearing and reverting back to your last chosen panel after a couple of minutes. Interesting.
How good is the screen, have you downloaded a movie and watched it yet? I hear the screen is incredible.
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2008Yes, you are absolutely right :)
X1 is hot :)
˝Having charged the X1 overnight Monday I ... moreWhy would you bother writing about a faulty handset or part thereof, instead of going back to the store and getting a replacement?
Don't waste out time.
˝AT&T to ditch WinMo over Symbian, iPhone may stay˝!
˝Steve Ballmer, CEO at Microsoft,himself has confirmed Windows Mobile 6.5 is officially, official!˝
SE did not and do not offer free upgrade!!!!!!!
What a bummer!
It was also released that SE wanted to delay the X1 release due to software bugs!
But obviously did not wait 2 weeks for the WM6.5!!!!!!
What a shame!
