Southie, 04 May 2011X10sive user...please tell me 1. does this phone have a privacy lock? 2. Can one set up ... morePrivacy lock before gaining access to phone? Yes, but once in the homescreen, anyone can access your data (eg. sms, videos, pics...etc) though there are 3rd party applications you can find in android market that protects your personal data. The phone does not have call blocking features however you can find 3rd party call blocking apps as well in the android market.:D Same with predictive texting, I'm not using the native android keyboards (it has predictive features as well) in fact I've uninstalled most of the preinstalled keyboards & instead am using ultra keyboard & swift keyboard (cracked versions...hehe) downloaded from the internet. Ultra keyboard for texting in different languages as it has a translator feature which I find very useful & swift keyboard for texting in english as it's word predictive feature is the best among the keyboards I've tried. This is what's great about android, you can almost always find a solution to whatever inadequacies you may find in your phone from the hundreds of thousands of supported apps in the android market & most of them are free too.:)
Krishna, 05 May 2011What about this phones battery life. Heard it sucks..juz gives 4-5 hours of standby time and h... morebattery can last very long if you take good care of it.
some tips taken from http://mylifewithx10.blogspot.com/2011/04/task-killer-myth-battery-and-memory.html
If you really have a battery issue, try lowering screen brightness, disable auto 2G/3G search (choose only one network instead). Know that Android, specially from 2.2 and later, have excellent memory management options, that way you shouldn't have problems using your phone the way it was meant to be. Try having your phone as up to date as possible (why not having Android 2.2 Froyo or 2.3 Gingerbread on??).

Krishna, 05 May 2011What about this phones battery life. Heard it sucks..juz gives 4-5 hours of standby time and h... moreNah... whoever told you that definitely doesn't know what he is talking about! Mine is running Android 2.1 with some optimizations and the new Arc home launcher and I manage to get two full days of battery charge with some heavy use... I'm also getting 818 on quadrant and really happy about my phone!
When is the update going to happen? Everybody got 2.3 and 2.2 except for us.
i m a xperia x10 user & i m satishfied with all its features but it has one drawback & that`s u cant make a videocall.

If fully charged in the morning it can easily manage a day of hard use, except gps which drains the battery really quick when searching for location.
iam going to get it tomorrow plz help me it is good to get or not?
Krishna, 05 May 2011What about this phones battery life. Heard it sucks..juz gives 4-5 hours of standby time and h... moreYou heard it wrong! Mine last three days on normal use and one or two days on heavy usage. It is the display which uses a lot of power, so if you use it all the time with the display on, your mileage will vary...
What about this phones battery life. Heard it sucks..juz gives 4-5 hours of standby time and have to reachrge every 5-6 hours once...and talktime is hardly 1-2 hours..is it so??...kindly reply ..i'm planning for it
amit, 05 May 2011After we get the upgrade are we going to get 16M colours for x10i ?/???
Yes. After upgrading to gingerbread 2.3.3. *But dont forget to open the .xml file where display color is written, edit that file, change the number 65536 to 16777216 or any numbers according to your desire. And voila! Your X10 shows more colors!
Oh, btw you don't need any upgrading to edit that numbers.
amit, 05 May 2011After we get the upgrade are we going to get 16M colours for x10i ?/??? You will get 65 million colors! How's that for a change?
