Well I use my phone much the same way you do, I only switch the bluetooth on when I want to use it. I do however use the wi fi quite a bit to connect to the net (total of about 90 mins daily). I switch it off when not in use. My battery only needs recharging every two to three days.
When I remember its actually a phone and use it to call, I talk for over an hour without any of the little lines in the battery icon going off. Hope that helps
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2009Hello, Im from DUBAI, UAE. When did u buy ur X1,from where and for how much..!! What is the... moreI bought my X1 from Eros Electronics in Marina Mall Abu Dhabi. I'm still loving it, I haven't seen any cracks in the casing, actually the casing looks very good in terms of quality and durability. Only one problem I have had is in the contacts view,you can only view both SIM and Phone contacts at the same time, there's no option to view either one OR the other.
Kindly can anyone comment on my issue, if I subscribe to the Blackberry service from my provider using X1, Can this service run with the X1?
What the chances of x2 coming out before xmas,,?? The xmas line up announced by uk vendors is always intriguing and as i am saving up and my contract can be renewed in december all eyes are on the releases over next 5 months...With so much on way and handsets still being announced and reccession and kids getting mobiles for xmas its going to be an important one..Its no good fannying about lets gets these smartfones out before the january lull ..
I don't understand what people see in this mobile phone.
I own a Xperia, the windows mobile is very slow, I think just a little child can manage the touchscreen since the images are too small, and just a warning if you are using any application pray for the phone not ring, you might miss what you doing or freeze the the system.

Mel, 27 Jul 2009How much does it cost? Whichever cellphone I'd get, I'd probably try to find it online UNLO... more90% of phones i have bought have been sim free or pay as you go if they do it..Here in uk it used to be 25GBP over 12 months now within 3 years it seems they want at least 35GBP and 18-24 month contract giving most firms a 50% increase in revenue overnight..
i tried almost all brands of mobile phones and i think sony ericsson is the best for me

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzai3gw9u_Qand when you add the Nokia E71 to the mix, still the Xperia X1??
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970currently i'm seeing the Xperia, Unlocked "U.S. version", for $599.00.
really awesome price, especially when comparing it to the "subsidized" price that the local carrier is selling it for here (for 'contract' plans; for 'prepay', they're selling it at the original price of $799.99 + 5% sales-tax. and, it's NOT UNLOCKED either way!!!!)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970How much does it cost?
Whichever cellphone I'd get, I'd probably try to find it online UNLOCKED. (I've been able to find the Xperia unlocked, on amazon.com)
I currently have (and am still using) the Nokia 5300, and I'm shopping for a possible replacement. I'm currently looking at these 3: Nokia N97, Nokia 5800 Xpress-Music, and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 (my first cellphone was a "Ericsson GA 628" (this one: http://www.gsmarena.com/ericss..._628-105.php ), and I really have no problem going back to [Sony] Ericsson cellphones, if really it turns out that the best of the 3 I'm currently looking at, is the XPERIA X1.
Yes, I know, "there's a new model of XPERIA coming out", "the Nokia N97's got 32GB of memory", and "the Nokia 5800 Xpress-Music came out before the N97, so, supposedly -- at least in gsmarena.com -- SOME (not all) of the kinks of the Symbian OS for touch-screen cellphones, have been worked out".
But I'm really looking for a cellphone that's:
3. has durable battery life (I'm not big on having Bluetooth on 24-7, or always browsing the Internet, or any of those battery-draining activities. I use them when I'm in the mood and/or "urgent need" to use them, but otherwise, I just leave them off. Period.),
4. you can easily organize and manage your contacts
(in the 2 Nokia cellphones I've had so far -- the 5300 Xpress-Music and the 'Nokia 8210', this one> http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_8210-19.php -- I've always liked how I can very easily organize multiple phone-numbers, e-mail addresses, website addresses, street addresses, birthdays, nicknames, etc etc, and other things, into one contact, and all that information would just appear under ONE name, instead of HAVING EACH-PIECE of contact information appear "SEPARATELY" and/or like a "separate contact", like my Motorola V220 did; it made the darn address-book be WAY MORE CLUTTERED, and i DESPISED that!!)
5. Bluetooth, integrated camera, 3G, not 'complicated' to learn (and/or "too hard a learning-curve, that makes the cellphone just not be worth the hassle of learning how to use it" -- yes, I always read the manual on my cellphone though, by the way)
6. The Bluetooth capabilities DEFINITELY DO need to have the ability to transfer files from cellphone to cellphone (not just sending files, but also RECEIVING files), including (but not limited to): MP3 files (for ringtones, listening to music, etc), photos, video-clips, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. (Ahh, the magic of having Bluetooth on my Nokia 5300, especially when before that my cell-phone was the Motorola V220).
7. durable. "good quality" construction. "solid"-feeling. (i don't harass and/or "brutalize" my cellphone -- I do try to take good care of my things -- but I don't like for my cellphone to feel as if it was a 1-milimeter-thick piece of glass that could break at the slightest touch).
Any recommendations on which of these 3 cellphones to get? ie. Nokia 5800 Xpress-Music, Nokia N97, Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1?
(overall, in general, which is the best option??
and, then again: which is the best option, for ME???)
I also forgot to mention: Quad-Band [GSM] is a COMPLETE, DEFINITE, AND UNQUESTIONABLE MUST!!
by the way, I'm going to be using the new cellphone (whichever I am recommended to get) on AT&T [in the States], "prepay" as opposed to "contract". And, I'm going to make sure that I buy the darn cellphone UNLOCKED (like maybe from Amazon.com or some other place where I can find the cellphone chosen, unlocked).
Good call-quality, good cellphone-reception, I can hear the person on the other line well, the person on the other line can hear ME well (and also, "loud and clear", obviously).
Another thing I noticed: Look at Episode 12 (ie. "Knight To King's Pawn") of the new "Knight Rider " tv-show. Sarah Graiman, in the beginning of the episode, when she hangs up on Michael Knight's phone-call, she's using an XPERIA!!! (this IS NOT affecting my decision to buy one though, by the way)
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2009can i have an answer soon about this. would you say this phone is for business men or should i... moreI think its suites both,,its got all the buiness stuff plus the cam/video and music and games for the regular guy..If its not there on fone you can download most likely to suit your needs..its a rerally powerful device and will have a slight learning curve but be kind and look after your fishes..
Xperia X1's 3.2 megapixel camera and flash.
Picture quality was pretty good. Colors looked almost true to life and while we thought there was a bit of softness to the image, we were still able to clearly identify objects in the photo.
Video quality was also good. There was minimal pixelation, even during scenes were there was a bit of movement and action.
X1 is the best XD
rey castillo, 26 Jul 2009up to how many gb memory card can this phone take?The X1 has about 400MB of onboard memory, and the expansion slot can accept up to 16GB cards.
