Meaning it cannot be scratched that easily. Same for the front of the phone.

Touch Sense from HD2
Windows Mobile 6.5 23053 Xperia X1Manila 2.5
Xperia X1 emulates iPhone and HTC HD + Some cool Apps and Panels
Also tell of something about whether the phone heats unusually after prolonged use.
Xperia... I think Sony should have branded it as VAIO. It looks a lot like mobile PC, Pocket PC.
ryk, 14 Nov 2009Hey Marcos, I'll surely be buying one within a month.
I completely agree with you that no ot... moreI uploaded the Touchflow 3D in to my X1, I've tried it for about a week so far, I have to say that it is better than WIN 6.1 interface.It activates applications fast enough. In the X1 WIN 6.1 it doesn't show you your alarm time, but in the touchflow it tells you right under the current time so that you don't forget the time is set to ring. (Attention to detail)it allows you to set the programs you mostly use in the order you want and also your applications icons.Very user friendly. I have two negative things to say about it: 1.When you flip your phone side ways to use the keyboard it doesn't work. 2. When you go to the weather screen it will automatically activate your phone's media setting to retrieve the weather info. instead of you having control of it, you have to shut it off manually if not, it will stay on indefinitely.
I will like to try WIN 6.5 ROM do you know anything about it? I also recommend "XPERIA Tweak" great little program, can downloaded from here and other useful things for your X1;
I am considering this phone seeing as the prices have dropped now that the X2 is available. The key feature I'm looking for is the push email with MS exchange. Does anyone have any experience with this?
having problem decide X1 or X2?
Xperia X1 is the best phone you can get in hand now. It has all the functions needed and multiple input options(touchscreen,navi pad, optical pad, qwerty keyboard). stylish looking phone with quality material built.
X2 is no much of an upgrade consider still using the same processor as X1 and no radio.also X1 design > X2 imo.
It has lots of application and games as it is using windows mobile. The best of all , it has large modder community which bring whole new xperience for X1( winmo6.5, Touchflo 3D)
However this is not a simple phone for simple usage.
Its rather complicated and take time to fully utilize its offered.
ihave read most of these comments and i think i can offer some insight into this phones viability.
for tech savvy users, expecially those who love to customise their phone through upgrading roms and radios, the xperia has to be one of the best phones made. multiple input methods (navigation keys, optical joystick,touch screen and QWERTY) make this phone unbelievably easy to use. the browsing experiance is simply excellent (opera).
however, if you're after a phone that requires no tweaking, then perhaps winmo is not the os for you.
se's contribution to winmo is what makes the phone so much fun to use. xpanels is awesome! each one transforms ur phone into a hardcore multimedia device. but winmo drags itback down, making it feel primative at times.
id recommend winmo 6.5, as its touchscreen menu seems much more finger friendly.
i would say it's a brilliant phone, but i dohave a love hate relationship. stick with se standard os, or nokias e series symbian for professional use.
If you have to choose between SE Xperia X1 and HTC Diamond 1,which one is the ideal pick? Would be glad if you can list out the pros & cons...
I liked this phone at first especially the keyboard....however for me there are just too many features, no one can possible use all of them! Although this phone apparently has lots of memory it isn't and can become extremely slow especially when turning on. Also the back cover is awful, as it is metal it can scratch easily. After leaving in your pockets (usually with other objects e.g keys it gets easily scratched and looks very tacky). Don't buy this phone.....too complicated and slow and touch screen buttons too small!!!
for the visually impaired can you enlarge the font of the text messaging?
Hi, I need update the Windows Mobile Build of my device for a new one, cause i cannot use my company security system. Anyone know how to upgrade the windows mobile 6.1 version ? I´ve tried do that through the Sony Ericsson update service, but there is no one build earlier than 20168. Many thks.
Igor, 23 Nov 2009bluetooth and wifi wont work well together (bt looses signal when wifi turned on). Any suggestions?Actually thats not a problem with the phone, its with wireless and bluetooth as both of them work at the same frequency of 2.67Ghz. and due to that there is interference which is universal
loved the phn in the beginning (dec 2008 )but dissapointed--inner shell of poor quality(cracking--batt cover loose), outer casing cracking,bluetooth problems, night photos quality poor,, numerous user complaints on ''X1 Cracks '' site (unofficial SE site)---a very expensive handset,,,sony could have done much better ----- I'm dissapointed in SE for not recalling the 08W44 range/units,,,,don't think i'll ever go sony again
tiny_aberration, 19 Nov 2009Can this be upgraded to a WinMo 6.5?yes, we can install winMo 6.5 in it.
