Phoenix, 13 Dec 2010Hey guys, is it possible to update the phone without using any PC?!We recommend that you do a cable update, instead of the OTA (over-the-air) software update even if itís available in your location as the USB transfer method is faster, more secure and more reliable. In other words, don ít use your handsetís built-in software update if you want to make use of your PC to guide you with the upgrade and setup process.
To summarize, here are some things you need to know when you update your Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 handset to Android OS 2.1 :
1. Download and install the Backup and Restore app from the Google Android Market if you don ít have it yet in your mobile phone.
2. Run Backup and Restore. Backup your phone ís contents
(bookmarks, call logs, contacts, multimedia messages and text msgs are saved onto the
3. Make sure you have charged your SE Xperia X10 handset to at least 50% (the update could drain your battery because it will last for about 30-60 minutes depending on the speed of your internet connection)
4. Open PC Companion and follow the steps given there. It ís self-explanatory but you have to follow the steps by the letter especially the part when it says, DO NOT DISCONNECT YOUR PHONE because the update could fail and you íll have to go through the lengthy process again.
very very poor performance...over heating,,, low battery back up..only 2 to 3 hrs..for videos...and cannot hear the other side ,when u r in a bus stop..or some where it is noisy...
This device Is so good as a design and may be as software but its hardware is totally bad and don't use while it is raining because it is not isolated and water could enter to the device even if there is a fog in the air don't use that device HTC HD2 better than that device
YAAA... i agree with u ..frnd...it has very very low incoming call volume//
not good as much as its money demands....i am not ok with its perfrmnce...using it for the last four month...very low incoming call volume>>>u wont get the other person if u r in a train>>or in abus stand..
8 MP camera with 65K colors screen?! can't Sony stop playing with the specs?
got myself a xperia x10 last few weeks, so far so good, battery is nice, camera is nice. i agree with someone's comment, it maybe not be the best, but its really cool and nice, overall, i love this phone
Have owned the X10i for about 4mths, and I still dont know what to make of it.
:-S . Just ordered a galaxy s, maybe now I can make sense of all this. Desperately waited for the update to 2.1 for x10, got it, and it was buggy. Timescape doesnt work as well as it did. Mediascape the same. And yet, I find myself fond of this device. I think its a confused mess. But im prepared to give a chance by comparing to another phone. Watch this space. I'll let u know.

2.1 actully should improve battery. go to settings and make sure that network mode is selected to GSM only.
Since i upgraded to android 2.1 and the battery is consumed so quickly... is there any solution for this problem?!
thank you all
hello x 10i owners any one please help me out i m not able to change my google account on x 10i. i found the only way is restore factory data is there any other way to change googla account please help me out.
Hi All.. I agree with some of you, that the X10 is an awesome phone, and those who bash it, are clueless. If you dont like the phone or dont like SE, then dont waste your time here by bashing people who like it. We respect your views and in turn you should respect ours. it not like we go bashing Samsung (not that id ever go back to them) or LG or Nokia or HTC or I Phone. Everyone has there own preference and views. if you dont like it, dont stay on this forum. Yeah this phone hasnt got the lastest adroid OS, but if you think about, iy just means theres more room for improvement as SE has made this droid their own... so deal with it

I was so excited when I bought this phone because I've been waiting for it for months and honestly, I was so disappointed. I wish I never bought it. The camera, though great quality, is terribly slow (even though it's autofocus). There are so many parts of life that I want to capture and though the quality is great, I always miss the shot. Really, there are so many things wrong with this phone. The only thumbs up I give for Sony here is how great the phone looks. The screen is huge but sensitive wise, not the best.
It wasn't worth the money so I suggest you guys really dig into other android phones out there before even considering this.
