SE is the most overrated phone on the market - by the fans
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 :))))
i have a question...in gsmarena, it says xperia has 256 MB RAM while in wikipedia 384MB RAM. so which is more accurate?
review pleeeaaaase !!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You are very wrong the xperia has been out since february n97 just announced and what about n95 original that had 1000 of votes before it was released..ELDAR problem was when he made a comment about the i-phione and people took it the wrong way and sent horrible emails and rendered the site useless with spam hits..The n70 and s/e k750 ruled the roost for months because they wee great fones and sold thousands...Their are over 5 billion people in world with access to a computer so 70,000 vote ver 10 months is nowt and it was mainly due to anticipation..Now its out people who are dissappointed will give it a low mark..The i-phone is top of stuff mag top 10,,t3 top 10 and has got very good reviews and won PDA essentials mag best consumer handset and yet has got low votes but its nowt to do with this forum..Apple will buy apple if the n97 gets 10,000,000 votes and people who adore samsung will buy innov8 even if xperia looks better..If people get obssessed with nokia ouchscreen or the android people will sway that way its democracy ...
Anonymous, 06 Dec 2008I got a chance to play around with this phone...man does it lag! I ended up getting a blackber... moreYou are not alone!
Many of us had waited long and had to realize that this phone is just another poorly designed and poorly manufactured junk.
I got a chance to play around with this phone...man does it lag! I ended up getting a blackberry bold because of the stable OS and performance. Too bad, I waited for this phone for almost a year
Really its awesome! but the camera should atleast 5mega pixle n the vedio recording quality should be increased..
I have Omnia at the moment and i went to a shop and test Xperia X1. The phone is awesome with a good size. The only problem is that the screen is not flush. The screen is so sensitive not like Omnia. and sunlight readability is good too, Omnia is too bad for that. I found X1 is very fast compare to Omnia, even though Omnia has faster processor. I think I will change Omnia with X1.
GSM...where in the name of god is ur review....Been waitin for a looooong while now...what's happening....
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970If you want a camera phone get the c905, is an awesome camera phone. Probably the best on the market at the moment (I could be biased as i have one) But I have an xperia as a work phone and it is the best smart phone i have used. Very happy with it....
In fact i am happy with both phones :)

got one, 06 Dec 2008What is the max size of micro sd card can be used in the X1???
The specs are not clear, will ... moreI am using 16gb card but read this first,,,,
I used 8gb before this 16gb and it was good in n82 and good in xperia,,,but its class 6 card by sandisk
I have used my 16gb in n82 with a lot of crashes whilst using mp3 player with 2500+ songs and 40 wallpapers ,10 5mp photos of family and numerous vids from 110mb down to 2mb,,some mp3 128kbps some wma 196kbps and the same crashes are happening in xperia BUT the 16gb is only class 2 sandisk and take ages to load up.
Both the n82 and xperia are supported to 32gb when it arrives but if its class 2 i am not bothering..The difference between loading up 8gb of card at class 6 and 16gb card at class 2 with the above data is from slow to absolutly painfully slow,,so yes the xperia hold 16gb but i think the card needs to be class6 but i cannot find one,,
I struggled at the begginig with 16gb and partly blamed xperia but its fine with 8gb so it cannot be xperia but the card,,i cannot reccomend it but thats my experiance and have formatted the 16gb card 4 times since past fortnight to check again in n82 and xperia and get bad crashes where its battery out and almost back to having to re-format card..One last point is i could have a bad card but its ok on laptop if
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970What? You have a hard time to choose in between. . . .dont you knw.. Both c905 & X1 is far different to each other... So, its depend on what you need, @got one: im using 4gig microSDHC card.. It also support 8gig microSDHC, but dont knw if the 16gig version... I will try to use 16gig card if is now available..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970im gettin ths phn next week maself..buh still u might wanna ask sm1 who owns it u know..they can tell u bout the pros n cons bout it betta thn any1 else..juz make sure their opinions r independent (not sm other brand fanatic)..peace!
What is the max size of micro sd card can be used in the X1???
The specs are not clear, will it support the SDHC cards?
want to use the 16gb card if possible.
I have used the n95, n96 , htc touch pro , blackberry storm, xperia x1 and the best phone is the xperia x1
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2008oh no, SE most fear phone is the NOKIA N97, it's ok we understad if put up the white flag.how the hell is Xperias biggest fear N97?!? coz N97 is not evn out yet..by the time it comes out X2 wud prolly come out..n other brands like htc, samsung wud prolly make evn betta phns thn N97, who knowz? so stop comparing 2 things, wen 1 of'em is not evn out there..
sony e always change their product with different housing,but it contain still same..but XPERIA is truly change it housing n contain...next 2 month HIKARU born with different style..i hope sony E can produce many design to their phone
Have this phone for few days now. I will post my opinion about it, and I will be very short and clear. Having been in the world of PPC for several years, and been an owner of lots of WM devices, I can only say that SE X1 is the ultimate device for everyone. There are also a lots of PPCs with similar capabilities, but the structure of the hardware and the built itself for this phone is high above all of them. It is expensive...that is true...but believe me when I say that we will wait for some time before we see the device that is better than X1. IMHO this device will keep the trone for some years.
