What to hate about X1: nothing
SE does not even make the X1 - it is made by HTC.
Some of the other SE phones made by Sagem.
There is nothing to hate as far as SE - Actually we should feel sorry for them.
A huge international corporation with huge apparatus and all the advantages but still loosing money year after year.
(and the recession just started now)
YES, all the fanatics and hired guns here try to change the facts - X1 has some serious problems, no wonder the release was delayed over and over again.
Now, Hikaru might be the last chance. Lets hope that will be better than this junk.
To all potentials buyers: try it for a while with good return policy and zero restocking fee!
For the fanatics: just google the reviews - Wifi, battery, buggy software, slowness problems reported all over the net.
You will have hard time to deny the TRUTH! :))))

Nice to see someone who's willing to learn...
I have carefully scanned the opinions.
I discovered that pros are IT professionals who understand the technics, the cons are Micky Mouse like myself that are IT useless.
Therefore I advise anyone to get into the depth of the settings and be patient untill you get use to it learning how to use it.
southboy, 21 Nov 2008symbian mobile better or windows mobile better? which type got more software to play with ?WM has over 20000 applications and games to choose from, so yes a far greater number than symbian.WM apps have far more features than Symbian
in reply to anonymous..
RE Battery Meter
battery panel could only be displayed on the top of the panel if only the time is not displayed to the title bar shown on top of right upper panel, by doing this go to start then setting system(lower case)then clock& alarms then click more option in the lower case then untick the box showing display the clock etc... throgh this option your battery meter is shown in the panel and you can check anytime how many percent of battery left. you don't need to display clock because every panel got time display especially spb panel.. hope this helps.
symbian mobile better or windows mobile better?
which type got more software to play with ?

Windows Mobile is taking some getting used to, but the phone is great". The N96 is having far more issues, but I don't see you plagueing those boards. This suggests that it's not actually the issues with the phone that are bothering you. Could it be that you're just an SE hater? Yeah, thought so...

Quote from another Pro-Review:
˝Summary: I don’t know what to say… Xperia has been a huge disappointment for me.˝
I feel sorry for the people who never heard about Google :)))

˝To be blunt, the Xperia X1 isn't quite up to snuff with the top smartphones in the market from an overall standpoint. Whether you're talking about its $800 price tag, stylus-based resistive touchscreen or 3.2 MP camera, this is a phone that would have fared better amongst early adopters a year or two ago.˝˝
This was written by a known pro-reviewer:
˝The most disappointing about X1 is its speed. The handset is slow, it’s very slow. We have to wait a couple of seconds for the programs to launch, screen switches aren’t fast either,.....˝
To many PR and sales B.S. here.
Most of the real users are disappointed with the performance, with features, with the bugyy and slow software.
There are a few very specific problems I have experienced just like others:
- software lock-ups
- Wifi drop outs
- poor reception
- low volume
I also suggest to check the unit out and be sure you have a good return policy with zero restocking fee!
I hope the Hikaru will be much better.
(expected in about 2 months)
i know that the battery life is hard to find but look at all the other specks its still a good phone it just needs a few adjustments
yo there is a battery meter. you just have to charge the phone or adjust the settings. i had the same problen earlier. just play with the adjustments.
