Hi, i'm a big fan of XPERIA X1..
This is like my dream device..
Cause it got all feature that i needed..
But i'm confused with 1 thing..
Why people always tell me not to buy this phone?
Even the seller told me not to buy it.. (the seller told me this cause i know him for a long time, about 7 years, since i bought my first phone from him..)
And many big shop in my town seems afraid to have it by ready stock (if we want to buy it, we must order and the phone will be ready for the next day)
And it seems everybody have been shouting disappointment, and why is that?
Then, yesterday i went to the phone mobile mall, it's a big place that sells phone mobile from new to second and i as far as my eyes can see, XPERIA X1 second is everywhere..!! Many said, only used 1 day and want to sell it for very cheap price..
Now, i'm getting confused..
Why the situation is going like this, after waiting for XPERIA for almost 1 year (i think?)
I need all your opinion,
Should i buy this device and iqnore all negative things that people said?
Or maybe i should consider another device?
Such as HTC Touch Pro or BlackBerry Bold 9000?
I really need all your opinion, so i don't made wrong decision..
Thanks a lot..

I must just say that this phone IS A MUST for any network admin.
I have successfully setup an ad-hoc wireless network to my laptop and bridged the lan to it so I can VNC any of the 15+ computers on my network at the tap of the screen. Added bonus is the internet connection is also bridged :p
This phone is a pleb killer, get it if you know computers. Otherwise if you struggle with advanced computing then you are going to be baffled by windows Mobile.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Well, 65k colors screen on Xperia is far better than 16 million colors 320x240 pixels resolution screen because Xperia has 800x480 pixels resolution screen.
well here is me typing on my x1 while browsing this site... as for slow, sure it take 2 seconds to open a different panel... for the switch from landscape to portrait... is really fast... unless there is internet bejeweled and coreplayer(video player) running in the background.... so far it crashed once... and it wasnt really a crash the panel worked i just couldnt change panels... i've had it for a month now and love it. keyboard is great... i wrote a lab report on my way to university... bittorrent gets speeds from 100 to 200 kb tops... only problems there are some ppl block wmtorrent as it is not widley used so its unrecognized... basically my laptop broke 2 weeks ago and i wont be getting a new one til christmas and this phone is more then enough... plus its the best looking phone so everyone stares... especially the jelious iphone retards
janazz, 07 Dec 2008I feel realy disappointed with this forum, it seems like a bunch of kids fighting for their ri... moreTheir is a lot of jealous people in here janazz who cannot stand the xperia and are determined to lie..T o me its no slower or faster than symbian and if you try to open windows media player on a computer then shut it down go on internet explorer its takes a fully fledged computer some time i think the xperia reflects that..IT has taken me a good while to get to grips with it after symbian for 5 years but if you have had tytan 11 you will get to grips with it faster..Battery will increase and you will get to treat each panel as a seperate option..
To person with card trouble,,had no probs with 4gb or 8gb but do with 16gb which is resolved as of today sunday..Whilst i took off all my data from wen in n82 formatted it and putting stuff back onto it to go in xperia their were private and other folders finding their way back onto card causing crashing and stalling when simply updating wma player..Could not understand what was happening until i scoured the data i was putting on 16gb card to put in xperia it had allsorts of symbian only apps plus software well hidden on card..Hopefull the 16gb card will be ok now..
this phone is the best Pocket PC around
the rank of this phone is number 1 on GSMArena Chart
well done sony ericsson
Had one about a week now and once used to the navigation around the phone my opinion is the phone is great.
Cant believe people talk so much crap on here but for the serious person i would recommend based on my experience.
The Li-po battery is amazing, i had 3 days from a full charge, had numerous 40 min phone calls plus working my way around the phone spent hours on it. Not played music yet so not sure batt life for that.
Keyboard easy to use, stylus easy just a cracking PDA phone everything.......
Only bad thing i have found is the micro sd card from my nokia does not seem to work in the X1 for some reason?? if anyone can help?? works fine back in the 6300, puzzled.
Oh Dear, to many Nokia fans in hear promoting N97 and trying to put X1 down with negative comments.
well hah in the REAL WORLD!
X1 is totally a unique phone that will stand out of the crowd.....
Its Unique, Sony Style
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970your home made XPERIA is very slow & tired....
even with big cpu and RAM he perform like "TURTLE".
Just don't understand why you people always compare Winmo & Symbian. Winmo's diehards will bash Symbian & vice versa. Let me tell you this: I had used Winmo & Symbian OS. Personally Symbian is still more user-friendly than Winmo. The best solution is to have both of them. Use the Symbian as you 1st phone & the Winmo as your 2nd phone. In this way you have the best of both world so to speak.
i like x1 but im dissapointed a little bit when i saw it in an SE store, and tried browsing it as its a little slow and not as elegant as i thought it is before when i watched demos and videos about it.
but its in my top 3 phone choice today. 8 months ago i thought of buying if its released and its my first choice. but now its slides down to my 3rd choice as i chosses the great iphone 3G as my first choice and the second is htc touch diamond over x1 as my third.
but no way in hell i am gonna choose the n97 over x1.
n97 is a big joke compared to my top 3 choices.
x1 is better over this soon n97, another boring nokia symbian phone.
I love mobile phones, I'd rather spend money on a phone then buyting a jewellery or an expensive handbag....i find myself changing mobiles every 6months....if Win Mobile come to an end then mayb that will be the time where my mobile will stay with me longer....sorry symbian, but for now I rather stick with WM.....I would have serouisly considered the N97 if it was WM.but X1 for now is my favorite mobile and i just can't wait to get my hands on it.

but you can leave your post do not worry about them :))
As far as Symbian :)
I have a bad news for you (or two):
˝AT&T to ditch WinMo over Symbian, iPhone may stay!˝
and in that case Symbian will get really strong!
and another development:
˝On Tuesday, Nokia completed its acquisition of Symbian, the latest step in a process that eventually will make Symbian an open-source operating system under the planned Symbian Foundation.˝
I have the feeling that you may have a few Symbian phones in the future :)))
(˝It turns out that these days WinMo is not in its best shape.˝)
