You are entitled to your opinion but I wouldn't call Sony Ericsson phones crap.
If you think back (no, I'm not living in the past) Sony Ericsson were way ahead of Nokia in every department, their one high end smartphone (P series) per year and a half was so good that Nokia didn't know how to respond to it, their music phones were ahead and superior to anything Nokia could offer and their camera phones were equally superior to any Nokia phone.
All that was up until mid 2006. So what happened to SE? Complacency coupled with Nokia raising their game to compete. Now, I'm not saying Nokia were not competing it's just that they couldn't match Sony Ericsson strength for strength.
Late 2006 Nokia hit back and hit back hard, the tables were completely turned. SE found themselves were they put Nokia for about 5 years and it's their turn to up their game. Yes, up until now there's no SE phone to compete with SOME N series phones, some of the N series phones aren't all that but most of them are that good.
As for the camera crown SE lost it last year when the N82 was unleashed but prior to that SE were in the driver's seat. SE lost it by sitting back and not being innovative or thinking much about competition.
It does look like they learned a harsh lesson judging by their recent activity this year. I do think they are going to fight hard this year. If that happens we the consumers are in for a treat cause it means better products from both Nokia and Sony Ericsson and the rest of the manufacturers.
Oh, the Xperia X1 IS A SONY ERICSSON PRODUCT, HTC only build the device everything else was designed and created by Sony Ericsson. The Microsoft licensing issue is the reason why at this stage HTC is manufacturing it.
Sorry for the long post.
Xperia X1 video records at 30FPS.Don\'t get hung up on tv-out I used it on n95 and it\'s crap.The output is all pixelated on your tv screen and video\'s do not play in dvd quality infact it\'s nowhere near dvd output.Try it and see....It\'s useless
don't make me laugh n95 isn't able to match x1.The qualcomm gps is streets ahead of the texas instrument one seen in n95.WiFi antenna is always better in ppc's,X1 has WVGA screen so you can watch your vga video recordings clearly.n95 screen has qvga resolution,everything you view on that crap screen has very low resolution QVGA lol lol X1 has superior HSDPA and HSUPA,touchscreen,qwerty you name it this baby does it.
SE is not able to give the TV out feature also in all their newest phones. Why???
the n95 was released in 2006 with VGA recording at 30fps. Still SE is not able to release a phone with VGA video recording at 30fps. This clearly demonstrates the limitations that SE is having in designing new phones.
I agree to that. Right from K700 they are having the same user interface till now. it has becoem very boring to use their phones nowadays when compared to other offerings like N82.
SE devices are designwise looking good. But features and performance are questionable.
this phone is not even released.
why the hell are people fighting for this phone which no one has ever seen also.
and no one knows the release date also.
is it so important for you the difference of pixels ??? its almost the same 3.2mp and 5mp
N-series are best sellers because they have proven reliability as they have sold millions. XPERIA is under development now and we will come to know about the bugs after its release. May be the second version of XPERIA will be good enough.
XPERIA doesnt have a 5MP cam, TV out, eventhough it is touted as a high end phone. SE is cheating.
N95, N95 8GB, N82, N96 and Samsung G810 are the only phones in the world to have a 5 mp cam, VGA recording, GPS and WIFI. What does Xperia have when compared to these sets????????
i would just like to add my two cents ok.
i think that sony erricson phones are absolute crap okay. they havent been able to produce a phone thats been able to compete against the Nseries. either way you look at it, their cameras are inferior (nokia bigger lens + better video) and the music capabilities are way beyond the walkman range (3.5mm jacks).
but i do like this phone and i am going to buy it. why? well sony erricson only designed the shell, HTC manufacturered the device and the phone runs on windows so sony erricsno havent had the chance to ruin it!!!
windows mobile is better then symbian even though n95 work many 3rd party apps only windows mobile 6 has windows live messenger send files photos videos voiceclips !!!!
when will skype video calls
but no 3.5 mmjack output
nokia and sonyericsson where using symbian on some of there phones
now sony ericsoon notice what are the advantages and possibilities !!!! i am impressed my only problem , is the tv out my friends !! tv out like the n95 >
sony has good battery for gsm calls and mp3 playback
but nokia has the best multi task os with symbian and only nokia has that quick menu bouton to see running apps just press and hold it you will see a drop down list on the left side of a symbian phone
unlike windows mobile you have to go to home screan to go see running apps
sony makes excellent camera phones
since the w810i the sony ericsson phones i ve used where nothing compared to any high end phones from nokia
HOPE IT S MADE SOLID (se has screan issues on a couple models)
i wonder what wold i buy besides a n95
tytn II or sonyericsson XPERIA X1
vs htc 7501 or 7510
People used to always say how symbian was really efficient as in you didn't need loads of RAM or CPU power funny how you now see symbian handsets with 400mhz cpu and 128mb ram lol WM does more and uses alot of resources but as symbian get more advanced it will be exactly the same.Neither are efficient
Symbian fans come in here slagging windows .I found a stack of evidence that suggests symbian isn't all that.One of many articles
Symbian poses to be "like Linux, but for cellphones", and Symbian consortium often uses the word "open" to even more pretend that Symbian is good, like clearly Open Source Software must be, due to pure intentions of people who develop it. Symbian also tries to hide the fact, that due to sheer numbers of units sold, Symbian is mainly just Nokia´s tool to combat Microsoft, and not a multipolar cellphone industry initiative. Similarly, contrary to the Symbian propaganda, Symbian OS is not an open source operating system but a closed proprietary system based on an outdated EPOC operating system for PDAs from British company Psion (thus it´s no coincidence that Symbian consortium is located in UK although most developers of Symbian work for Nokia in Tampere city in Finland).
One last thing...
There is no way a N95 will be faster than the X1, not because of the display anyway. 450Mhz processor with WVGA BRAVIA is already faster than the 332Mhz processor with QVGA.
As stated in the specs the X1 is 528Mhz, so along with the WVGA and being BRAVIA powered, the N95 will always be slower in that aspect.
