from the Cnet review:
"Aside from the interactive panels and a couple of multimedia extras, Xperia X1 is very much like other Windows Mobile 6.1 devices and the aforementioned features don't seem to justify spending the extra dough."

This phone is the best in design, best in hardware among all the mobi le phones. The feelings for this phone when you hold it or when you use it is SOLID. Compare to, HTC TOUCH HD, HTC touch PRO or HTC touch diamond or Samsung Omnia (all of them give you the cheap, plastic feelings), XPERIA X1 just stand out of them.
For software wise, it's nothing much special but just a Windows Mobile phone.
I kinda like iphone 3G though...the touch and screen rotation, and operation of the phone is basically instinctive, so it is so far the best and unbeaten! Windows software just can't beat Apple's no matter how and i doubt it ever will! Oh come on windows, you better pull up your socks! Your windows vista is a monster failure!!!
Just in time for Christmas, Vodafone UK has announced that it will be offering the Xperia X1 for FREE!!!!!!!!!!
Anybody, please let us know a place where they give away HTC HD, or THC PRO, or Omnia, or Nokia 5800, N96, E90 ....
all of them older models!
but X1 is already FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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 :))))
this phone looks great, i have never been a fan of touchscreen phones but this phone changing my mind about them, hope the price goes down so i can buy it
Rizwan, 29 Nov 2008i think xperia x1 is made by.."""""GSM ARENA""""". plz, look at the 'Voting Results'. this i... moreAnd why don't you think that it deserve such "big points"??What is lacking in this mobile? Just because you can't buy it does'nt mean its bad...Xperia is the best right now..you go to N96 forum and cry about its failure.
Does anyone knows whether we can run executable files on it such as : CISCO PASS4sure , ..??
Had a play with one of these at work the other day - great phone, one of the best designs ive ever seen that runs WinMoPro. only two problems i could pick up on (and they are really very very minor) it that the 2 little silver buttons on the front are very cheap feeling and dont fit in with pretigious feeling of the rest of the phone and that the QWERTY keyboard is slightly staggered (i used to use a tytn2 where they are all straight) so it takes a while get used to.
overall ide say it was an 7/10!
it is available in any Sony Ericsson Philippines...
xperia-42.5k- limited only.
I just can't wait to have this. I just bought C905 for 27k here in the Philippines. I'll switch to Xperia before new year. Cheers.
Btw, C905 is great.
I have experienced the problem of poor reception, dropping calls, and Wifi.
and unfortunately I am not alone:
˝First day of real use in London has shown the reception to be very poor - on the train into London it dropped out most of the way (My S620 always has a good signal, my Athena usually an H but at least a G or E). Now in Lonon the number of bars is 1 - 2 most of the time and the data reception for a download / web page very slow. ˝
Too late too expensive..too laggy compared with my friend's omnia,256mb ram not affected overall speed,blurry cams,low volume speaker..even htc touch pro hd and omnia better than this,,but great job SE !! It's SE 1st winmo device,maybe x1 successor will be a great device,,thanx SE
