X10 on OS Android 1.6...
I am not much of a techie but over the years I've learn to love SE phones. I just wanted to know, how it works, say I purchase an X10 under OS 1.6, Is it compatible with OS 2.1? Can I easily update the OS? Does it cost that much? Any advice? Should I wait for the 2.1 instead?
tejasvi bhatia, 31 May 2010jst got x 10...its good...just that its battery is pathetic...i charged it yest night n today ... moreOn battery draining too fast:
I guess the reason that it drained too fast is because of the "setting of your battery/power". Try to check if you configured it to power saving of some sort. I got an x1 as of writing, and yes, the battery drains fast if I don't switch the battery mode to power save.
what an absurd logic...
would you also say ferrari needs to work harder in order to catch up to.. say.. toyota? simply because toyota has more annual output quantity-wise than ferrari?LOL
there are companies who's aim is to merely produce products... keep releasing.. they keep buying... we keep earning... just load em up with whatever latest tech that's out there and sell it...LOL
and then there are companies who's aim is to make an art out of their products and be different from the rest...

"how can you say will get? is about now. se user said 2 things form galaxy is better than x10. no man you do not have android 2.1 and you must buy a application for doc view or edit. but it build in galaxy s. you do not enjoy hd video recording, no multi touch, no front camera for video call and never x10 have 1gb rom. super amoled never. all that vs x10 design and ui that not able to be updated. look maybe you will never get android 2.1 and even if you get android 2.1 you will never get super amoled, never have videocall, never 1gb rom, never multi touch and pinch zoom. x10 is not to be compare. sorry. "
that's a lot of nevers...
do you honestly think SE is going to stop with X10?
do you really think SE isn't going to produce a successor to the X10?
never get amoled..?
never 1gb rom..?
the X10 won't get these because the X10 weren't designed to have these...
but SE won't stop at X10... this is their first android phone... it'll get better and better as they get used to adopting the android OS...
and.. a company that spends time developing products says a lot about them... not unlike some companies (samsung anyone?) that churns out phones out of their factories as if they were candies! how much time do you think they spend on each phone..these.. companies who announce/release new phones seemingly every month?
read around.. not just on gsm arena... and you'd hear things like..
"oh... there's another phone out.. surprise surprise it's a samsung.."
"..oh.. another samsung..."
it's like trying to dominate the market by quantity...
but i say... quality over quantity!
not only do these manufacturers make lousy designs.. they also have few differences in between models!
unlike SE.. even the x10 family have major differences amongst themselves... the original X10, the X10 mini and X10 mini pro have very marked differences... aino.. hazel.. satio.. vivaz.. aspen.. yari... just look at those phones and you'd see how much SE have put a lot of thought into designing each so that each would be truly unique from their other models...
but it the end it all comes down to personal taste...
and of course also depends on whether you can buy a sony ericsson product or not!LOL!!
The truth is x10 will take long before the get android 2.1 it seems to be the user interface that brings the troubles. nothing is sure and the time given to x10 user in q4 2010 can be september, october or november even december. google ask se about froyo? it seems like the big brother x10 will never get froyo. x10 mini and x10 mini pro will get froyo but after a long wait. this ui was the best thing for x10 users but in reality it stop the fast update release.

hello.. i went to the outlet today to buy x10, and for the past few weeks they r telling me via phone tht its not available till now.. ive searched everywhere for this phone, but no one has even heard of it,, i hope sony ericsson needs to have a depth research on the availability of products in asian countries, the shop keeper convinced me to but n900 and made many complements about it.. now wht? SE OR NOKIA...

and not looking for a debate.
i dont give a damn about android 2.1 or 2.2. i do care about 8 mp camera, that feature i would use very often, and maybe AMOLED, which basically i dont give a damn, cause i used to have Samsung phone and personally i did not like the respond of touch. YES colors were amazing, but that was it.
how often do you watch movies on the phone? sorry mate, if you cant afford watching HD movies on your TV, and buying phone for video purposes, i'm very sorry for you.
in my oppinion the best respond is on iPhone, but not on AMOLED screens. still iphone is a huge disappointment for me.
there is no perfect fone, and never BE.
HTC gives technology
Sony world wide recognition, style, and unique.
Samsung and Nokia annoyance.

silvercat, 31 May 2010which is better? VIVAZ or X10? :)depends what you are looking for.
do you have a child and want to record him/her on HD video and have memories, then go for VIVAZ.
however, if you are more a PC guy, love to browse the web on good screen, have a good camera on the fone, dont give a damn about video quality recording, but do care about style, go for X10.
in my oppinion X10 lacks of HD video recording and Flashlight option that can be turn on manually.
if you dont care about what i care, then go for X10.
i wanna get X10, cause its flashy design wise. its sony, it has 8 mp camera and 4 inch screen.
Samsung Galaxy S beats X10 by 2 things: HD video recording and AMOLED screen.
