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.
i never except this kind of mobile.............wow... great thanks to sony erison.........
this is a good phone with qwerty key board with 3.2 mega pixel cam also i like this cell. & multimedia function supported... windows letest version 6.1
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2008Some people like stripy videos, where there is banding across a colour gradient.
Right clic... moreI think the real question here is: Would you prefer to sacrifice the colours for battery life. That's what is at stake.
The battery life is so good because it is only 65K colours. At 256K colours (normal Windows Mobile phones), battery life gets damaged a fair bit. Using Symbian 16M colours, it is damaged even further. This is on a 1500maH battery by the way. Talk time: 10 hours on 65K, 8-9 hours on 256K, 6-7 hours on 65K.
There no battery meter in the front panel.
Means a couple of steps to chech the battery life.
WOW!!! this phone is extremely good!!! The display is the best I've seen!!!! Windows mobile is faster than other ppc!!!I'm extremely happy!!!Thx sonyericsson (and HTC of course)
If you have any doubts about buying this gadget, or how its stacks up against the very good Touch Pro, take a look at this vids. Very informative.

Cab File Full:
Everyone has their own criteria against which they will judge this phone. I am experiaing (sic) incredibly poor battery life, struggling with the move from UIQ3 to Windows Mobile (for example, making a call from contacts is actually a fiddly process, can't always close an application without invoking the X-panel feature. Overall the build quality is good though sometimes the rear cover pops open with no provocation and the slider mechanism feels less well constructed than on my wife's W850.
It is packed full of features. Wayfinder is a joy to use, sound quality is superb in the media player, video playback is excellent and the keyboard is adequate. (I actually find the qwerty keyboard on the P99o easier to use!).
Good: feature packed, well designed, cool factor
Bad: Battery life
Hope this is deemed to be a fair assessment to those of you who enjoy offensively slagging off others who have taken the time to post their comments. To those like you I say, "Get a life".
To xperia X1 owners-how good is the video recording?I read it's capable of 30FPS @VGA resolution.I want a xperia mainly due to it having a powerful operation system but video capture is important to me.My n95 has it's limitations but it does have an excellent camcorder
Vodafone have messed too much with the x1 every other carrier has more or less left it alone but Vodafone had to go and mess with it. They replaced the Google panel with a Vodafone live one that you cannot remove and if you try use the wi-fi it will just not connect .
I got my x1 last week and tomorrow it will be on its way back to them in the morning. I contacted Vodafone about the problems I was having with the wi-fi and was told that in making some of the changes to the phone that they had messed up the wi-fi and it will not work and are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
Sony ericsson have also confirmed Vodafone are having issues with the phones wi-fi and are working with Vodafone to resolve the problem but they also told me that all other networks are unaffected and should send the phone back to Vodafone.
Xperia X1 is an awesome device let down by stupid meddling vodafone
