I tried the update last night even tho their isnt one yet and its different to other s/e fones..You have to press the volume button down and hold whilst pressing and holding power on/off button until a striped colour display appears..IT said no updates available but then i was left with how to get rid of all the stripes on my screen,,so restarted it and all was back to normal..
Its been really windy today and had a bag in my hand and whilst typing using stylue it was difficult as bag kept swaying,,so opened up keypad and was brilliant..So i am glad i have not gone full touchscreen and still not convinced pure touchscreens can replace buttons IMO..
Seriously loving the fone now its one of the best ive ever had and can only get better as i explore .. If their are newer operating systems on way which work simpler but are still as powerfull smartfones will probably be the norm in future..
people,wndows mobile is basic OS..but u can beautify it with lots of softwares!!!!!!!!!
if u wanna equalizer on ur phone do get pocketmusic or any stuff like that.
if u wanna phone who has everything go for nokia
after all windows is for business
bynn, 05 Dec 2008I too hope they upgrade their own s/e media player with equaliser and more function in next up... moreto be truth, ive been using the x1 just a couple of days. The audio performance of the x1 cant replace my W910i, since there is no Equalizer, and other essencial thing to improve the sound.. I always carry both fone wherever i go, cuz i love listenin to music, the SE MUSIC Interface on the X1 is similar to the Walkman series but its totally different in sound quality...

Looks all well and good, but I really can't stand Windows Mobile. Not that Symbian is a whole lot better; it's become so bloated and bogged down over the years. I've not had a chance to mess with Android, but what I've seen makes it look like it still has a long way to go. Sigh... I guess what I'm saying is, I like the phone, I just wish we could work on developing a new/better flavor of OS instead of cramming more f'ing pixels into the camera.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Tough question, but if you ask me, Sony Ericsson X1.
when i switch on my cell it takes a lot of time to catch the network , which doesnt happen in any other cell , the E (edge sign ) comes then only the network is connetcted , y does it take like 10-15 minutes after i switch on my cell ?

I was, until two days ago, a Vodafone customer care employee and I've had to tell people the same thing almost every day for four years now so I know for dead cert that it's correct...

You know, if you hav'nt use any WinMo over the past few year.. The Xperia is 1 of among the best WinMo ever made, featurin a 3inch(WVGA) touchdisplay, innovative Xpanels, slide_up curve QWERTY keyboard, first ever WinMo that can shoot video VGA 30@fps, Triband UMTS/HSDPA & Quadband GSM/EDGE, Massive CPU and a 256MB RAM... If that all is not enough for you and still comparin to N97 j0key 640x360pixel resolution, a copycut formfactor and all.. Kick you *ss!! By the Sony Ericsson Said that the ultimate firmware of Xperia will goin to be Available early nextyear(around February) so all set of features of the Xperia is not that final, maybe as soon as SE release the new firmware will improve same of features like Music/Video Player, Browser, UserInterface, and so on.
HTC coming out with the HD again but with qwerty keys slide out next year... Boy cant wait to get a hold of that!!!!
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2008Not, really! :) and I do not promote one company over the other. But, I had several phones... moreyou owned several phones and none had gliches u say but the person said and i quote "keep in mind that there is no such thing as a perfect phone so all will come with some PROBLEM AND OR GLICH!!"... Dont lie to yourself i'm sure u expirienced some problem
Ok, just picked up my X1 yesterday. Impressions:
Screen wasn't as big as I expected, a little wide would be nice. Form-factor of phone is good size though - not too big for my small hands :)
+QUALITY hardware build
+Panels work great (esp after grabbing the additional free ones from the SE website)
+Keyboard keys nicely spaced out, less chance of mistype
+X1 Media Player looks and feels great
-Windows Mobile. Mobile usability sucks, even when compared to something like UIQ3 on SE Symbian phones. UI perf. not super-fast even with such high specs. Can't theme it as easily as "normal" phones.
-Keyboard keys don't have much travel
-No accelerometer. Auto-screen rotate would have to been soooo nice!
I'm sure with some customising and fiddling this phone will be a pleasure to use!
Joseph, 04 Dec 2008Having the X1 for 1 week now and coming from the Nokia E71 and N90, I’ve to admit that the X1 ... moreI found that out that you have to manually close the data connection..If your connection was active all this time and you are using gprs/3g/hsdpa you should not incur any charges if you have downloaded nothing,,its only the old csd that charged 10pence a miute to use whatever you did..You can leave your data on all the time with a bit of a hit on battery but if your not uploading emails or using any data you will not be charged.. I am sure i am correct as gprs is called "always on "in the beggining were it just sat their in the background allowing you to immedeatly be back on the web without having to keep re-connecting..
When is the review coming? Or are we being held in suspense to raise hits?
Why are ppl wanting symbian??!As Symbian is a closed platform users(geeks) cannot fix the numerous failings,now nobody is denying WinMo has it's faults but because it's a far more open platform users can fix the faults.Visit xda-developers.com and see what ppl can do with winmo..then surf some symbian websites and you'll see users do nothing at all with the core OS...they just talk about applications!
