A quick look at the Xperia X10:
# The first thing that caches our eyes, is the nice and sleek design, it's really unique!
# And the huge shiny scratch resistant screen! TFT capacitive touchscreen at 4 inches with best resolution so far-854*480-! shows 65k color, but it'll show 16m color after OS update! (not to mention that even with 65k color the screen looks great)
# Then the unique and beautiful UI! fast and smooth Media/time scape
# An excellent 8MP camera that is FULL featured, autofocus, LED flash, touch focus, image stabilization, geo-tagging, face and smile detection-it can recognize up to 5 face to save their picture between previous taken pictures from those people!-, with WVGA at 30fps video recording, and after OS update it'll be an HD recorder!!
# 3.5mm audio jack & micro usb port & 8gb memory card included, officially supports 16GB but 32GB memory have tested on it successfully!
# 384mb of RAM and the Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon 1 GHz processor!
# Android 1.6!! but it's still great because of the SE custom UI-for example it can transfer files via bluetooth unlike so many phones with 1.6!- and it'll get android 2.1 or maybe 2.2 plus with UXP upgrade in Q4 2010 (september) and then it'll support flash too, so there is nothing wrong with this too!
# And the build quality is excellent! It really feels great and comfortable in hand!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
And of course no phone is perfect and this phone has some lacks too:
# No front camera (it seems that it'll be able to make video call with rear camera but it’s not cool anyway)
# No multi touch(SE is working for an alternative and we know that it has 1 finger zoom feature)
# No build in radio(on the other hand it has MW600 with radio and brilliant audio quality and you can enjoy listening to music or radio, 10 meters away from your X10)
# Average loudness for loudspeaker (but the quality is nice)
Well, i love this beauty and i have no doubt about buying it. you?! you buy whatever suits you ;)
[deleted post]Is it true that XPERIA X10 bought in Saudi Arabia is not yet MMS enabled including internet using SIM card (on both networks MOBILY, STC & ZAIN)? I was not able to use both features I mentioned with my X10. I would appreciate any help.
I have had the Xperia X10, since the day it was released. Dont get me wrong but this phone is Excellent. My first Android and i quite like it, id probably stay with android and wouldnt change to a different OS since using Android.
their are a a good few downs with this phone.
1) Unable to transfer files wireless through network.
2) Unable to use phone as a Modem
3) No video calling
4) No Radio
and many more, but these are the ones I miss from my old phone.. Suppose to be an upgrade.. From W995... Huh!!!! Suppose it is in a way.
[deleted post]Maybe, but it can happen that some X10 phones to have some problems, because there are NO perfect companies in the world.

braam, 25 May 2010X 10 good fone but the battery life is not wat they say or there is something rong with mine i... moreI have finally managed to solve the battery problem without using any additional applications like task killers or juice defender; i did test it for this past week and it works well.
All that you do is go to HOMEPAGE\SETTINGS\WIRELESS CONTROLS\MOBILE NETWORKS; Turn off MMS & DATA. Just note that when you need to connect to the internet you turn it ON and OFF again when done.
To all those SE-Haters who might complain why one has to switch these features on and off like that on a SUPERPHONE, I say to you;
If you buy a brand new car with aircon, you don't keep the aircon ON all the time simply because there is aircon, instead you use it as and when required. The same applies to this superb phone.
Apologies to all the guys who own this fantastic phone, i have just run out of superlatives to describe this masterpiece.
=P, 26 May 2010just in case you haven't seen this site yet.. http://www.concept-phones.com/ enjoy.^_^that was a great concept phones. i like it
[deleted post]heh it is imitated and a copied design! now ask me copied from what?!
from BRICK lol
[deleted post]I noticed something was deleted. I don't think there's someone reporting. It's probably one of the few routine checks GSMArena does every now and then. They also deleted my post about the shadow, probably because it had a link to phonedog.
Phoenix, 26 May 2010Hi jean, please do not post anything about motos here, just X10 mate or at least just about SE... morePhoenix, I'm just showing what new android toys there is(or will be) in the market. For people to compare and choose. Know about the specs, what's good and bad. What to base decisions upon. In a reasonable way of course, no bashing or brand promoting.
[deleted post]Hi jean, please do not post anything about motos here, just X10 mate or at least just about SE! thanks a lot :)
the multitouch input which is lacking in the x10 is the only factor which prevent me from getting it. some android games need multitouch and is there an alternative way of playing them in x10.

Then SE had to deny this in april saying it's hardware related.
Look at that, guys!
