I got a Vodafone X10 last week and was, initially, impressed. The phone is great. It looks good, feels good and is soooo much faster than my old Nokia N85 it is unreal. I love the android app store too...much better than nokias crappy ovi store. Then the bad stuff.....Battery problems with this phone are all over the net. I found info saying some are fixed with baseband 1.0.16 upgrade....which Vodafone hasn't issued :(. This means I get about 8-10 hours from my phone with little or no use....approx 70% of that being used by 'cell standby'. If you use maps....the battry might as well be short circuted! Then i kept loosing 3g on this phone, ony regained by cycling the network conection. In short...amazing phone...SHOCKING battery. I am returning it and hoping for better from a Desire....fingers crossed!
I would like to Comment on Sony Ericsson Xperia X10,that everything is Present in Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 BUT THE Main thing that should be Added in the Features of Xperia X10 Is the FM Radio. I had to be Added in.
There is no Office Suite in X10
can i download them? if yes from where?
can i open PDF's?
[deleted post]I am a BIG SE fan, but 4 example I like the Wave's design, I like the design of the Samsung Omnia II too. The Samsung HD has a cool design too. The Galaxy S is NOT a cool phone 4 me. :D
SE has cool smart phones, this is true. :)
[deleted post]Sorry I made a mistake
It is not milestone,
I mean the Milestone - XT720
know in Korea is Motorola Motoroi
it has xenon,8MP,HDMI,DLNA,Radio,TV,an Cortex that can be over clocked to 1Ghz which same as 8500.
and all the other features that wave 8500 has, radio, and bigger 3.7 16M screen,it weighs more but not plastic, its steel.same 10.9mm
only that has moto no AMOLED,so overall it is a head of 8500 wave
Hope I am correct,
Yes I have seen some people doing it here, there are some good people here too.

Its good that you are sensible and honest. Yes, the SE X10 and Moto Milestone are great looking phones. Samsung are not the greatest looking phones, but they may change in the future. People are demamnding looks nowdays. Sorry, I don't agree that the Milestone has better specs than the Samsung Wave as I just compared all the specs. But, specs are not everything. Thats why a phone with lower specs and Symbian can still be quite fast.
But having worked in the mines in South America for 4 years which were very hot and dusty, I can say that only Nokia and Moto were tuff enough for these extreme conditions. SE broke the easiest and chinese parts are expensive for SE, so they were rarely repaired.
But, Moto definately gets the cigar for new unique designs again. As Moto has done so much in the past. Moto does it own thing and the large USA market supports it own brand.
Keep up the honest comments.
Certain people here who don't even own a SE X10, talk like gods and abuse and insult everyone that doesn't meet their personal standards. You can guess who I mean....LOL...they are the Blind SE fans.........

Overall Motorola Milestone looks better in specs even than 8500 wave.design too, Even x10 has better looks In Korea the XT720 was the first Android phone.
The SE X10 is the best looking chinese made phone on the market today. It appears everybody agrees with that. Unfortunately, thats all that is special.
If you want a screen so big, why not buy a 7 inch netbook for under US$200. Plus all the current X10 bugs and faults which are too many to list here...e.g. terrible battery life, terrible sound/volume, lacking good support and updates etc etc. Not to mention all the constant SE lies !!!
The X10 sells for between US$600 and $800. Extremely overpriced for a Chinese made & designed mobile phone. Tosihba had 4 inch screens over a year ago !!
SE X10 has NO camera flash, just a small useless light !!
The Samsung Wave S8500 is available now and TOTALLY KILLS the X10.
Samsung Wave HAS Super amoled screen, full camera flasg, 16 m screen resolution, Multi Touch, bluetooth 3.0, full flash support, full Java support, 720p video and playing, LED video lighting, 89 million triangles per second graphics chip, Samsung hummingbird processor which is faster than the snapdragon, WiFi BGN, reasonable price, Bada open source OS, built in radio and equalizer, secondary camera, pinch and double tap zooming, full web support for web browsing, 1.5 gig internal memory, up to 32GB microSDHC card, etc etc etc etc etc. Again too many advantages over the X10 to list here.
Only blind/biased SE fans would buy this overpriced chinese made X10, lacking all the above features. Smarter/sensible people who aren’t blind or biased, definately go for the better, faster, high end SAMSUNG WAVE............... And you will have money left over to buy a 7inch netbook...LOL
You won’t regret buying the Samsung Wave and all the X10 owners will be envious of your Monster phone. Samsung is the KING of mobile phones !!
BTW, Samsung make all of their own parts and are made/assembled in S.Korea. Hence, Samsung can sell phones at a honest price. Samsung also sells many parts to SE.
See this if you want. :)
Zac, 09 Jun 2010does this phone have flash?The SE X10 has no camera flash. Just a weak light. Therefore it takes bad night photos and poor night videos.
MotoGP, 09 Jun 2010@Dennis
Yes, but we are interested in Androids. Not Bada.
Yes your screen is AMOLED,nut ne... moreSamsung Wave has a LED flash which is OK for night hots. As a LED flash can also be used for video lighting. Thats why many makers are dropping Xenon flash.
If you want a Amoled 4inch screen go for the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S. But, only 5 mp. Like the SE X10, both have no camera flash.
HDMI and DLNA in mobiles are still a bit away.
Thnks for your honest comments.
How to check the firmware version of XPERIA X10? Would it be possible to use the firmware update of UAE (United Arab Emirates) even my phone was bought here in Saudi Arabia since UAE and Saudi are within the Middle East? Please let me know. Thanks!
