For people who care about the camera a lot, I would like to share with you my experience :
I want to tell you that yesterday I did a comparison between some nokia, sony, samsung phones regarding the camera. And guess what sony cameras beat the others big time! I am not exaggerating and I am 100% sure of what I'm saying.
The only handsets that revealed the true colors of the pics were the se handsets, nokia was not bad as well, but still the colors came either darker or lighter. This happened with colors such as green - silver - red.
Honestly know offense, but samsung cameras were just a joke. They turned the red colors to orange and they turned the purple colors to pink! I must admit I was kind of shocked, specially that I already have a negative concept about samsung.
Regarding the flash to my disappointment se were the weakest, but the pictures were still fine. Nokia won this battle big time, and samsung again ruined the pictures with the flash specially with closer shots, the pictures were horrible and the colors were not real again.
In conclusion: in daylight and low light conditions the se handsets were superior to others. On the other hand, In dark situations I found the nokia to be the best. And finally, if you are a fan of taking pics and you want a camera my advice for you to forget samsung and I mean it! Unless ofcourse you want it for other reasons.

Here's what he posted:

Hi everyone, it’s Aaron here.
We’ve been looking at the comments and the problems that people have been experiencing. We are glad to report that we have found no problems with the relevant software builds, and everything is working perfectly.
It can only be down to mis-use of the handsets concerned. Sony Ericsson will accept no liability for handsets whcih have been tampered with or abused.
Once again, we have created a fantastic product, and so many of our customers are delighted. We have solidified our position as a market leader and a manufacturer of quality products.
Is he indirectly saying we should forget about any new release? What a shame!
Maybe i should finally give up on SE.
Fortunately there are other providers like HTC who might satisfy us (maybe HTC Desire).
One important lesson learnt though, is that next time i buy a phone, i'll take my time to read what users are saying and be double sure.

http://blogs.sonyericsson.com /products/2010/04/06/xperia-x2-softwar... moreThanks EYA. Very interesting!! So Aaron posted the announcement on their release of MR1 as well! And what interesting responses he got from users! Very interesting indeed! :)
But please, in future remember there's no need to break the link onto multiple lines since it works fine if i just click it. :)
I think in your process of breaking up the link, u accidentally introduced a space so it failed to take me there, but i was able to figure out the correct link.
So all X2 users who are intersted in what's on that blog, just click the link below (remember not to right-click and select Open link in new Tab) and read for yourselves what is over there:
One interesting thing is that in spite of all this confusion, SE still welcomes comments from users. And i think that is a good thing.
Hopefully, there would fix all the issues and the users will be happy.
Thanks again EYA :)

An SE rep called Aaron posted the announcement at the SE blog when MR2 was released, and todate it has attracted 258 responses. Like you, and like me, some of the respondents are already asking about the next update.
So i expect him to post a new announcement if and when MR3 becomes available.
Check on the SE blog here:

Although I still prefer restarting is at least once a day to get the best performance out of the device :>
Wow! last night I've just updated my X2 with MR2; and now my X2 is even better than ever! The interface is cool, and it works faster and more responsive. Great job for Sony Ericsson. I hope they'll release another great update soon.
Greenheart, 29 Jun 2010just give me
need help here!!There is a very nice silver and blue theme that you can use it with the silver x2 :)
I'm using the black and gold theme because I have the black one, but the silver and blue is fantastic with the silver!
i say go silver, go for being unique, and go for the fashion color ;)
how will i know if there is another update available after mr2?????
some one please help!!
but I dunno if silver or black, I dunno if, I buy silver, it goes unique, if I buy black the keypad is white and the screen color is black same as the display picture there, so if I pick silver, i think that the back is ugly, so plss help me o.o
Iconsoft Phone Extension v2.2 - Another lovely replacement for the standard Phone app
To the good X2 users out there, if u are looking for an alternative Phone app, u may check on Iconsoft PhonEx v2.2 from here:
or from their site i.e. http://www.iconsoft.com/?language=en&menu=d17f0601f46e5573
And, by the way, i just saw that they're running a promotion that could land u the app for free! Check it here: http://www.iconsoft.com/?language=en&menu=9747144b9c88a543
Like Inesoft Phone v6.08, it's also very lovely...it's easy to copy phone numbers from the Call History, easy to send SMS to any Contact's phone number, and easy to Hide/Show their XT9 keyboard. Plus, it has a lovely interface, nice combination of colours.
Plus, it uses two of the screen transitions that wow me. I think they are called 'Wipe Left to Right' and 'Wipe Right to Left'
Plus, unlike Inesoft Phone, it has an option on it's configuration screen that Disables the standard app. I want to believe that it is this option that has kept it running on my X2 without once causing the phone to hang.
I have one slight issue with it however...and it is about the 'Wipe Left to Right' and 'Wipe Right to Left' transitions. They almost always run awkwardly as if the amount of RAM in the phone is not enough.
I shall draw the people at Iconsoft's attention to it. Hopefully they would improve on it to make it even more lovely.
Baby Girl, 28 Jun 2010Hello guys! Please tell me, why IE mobile doesn't support flash? What is this? Is it joke or s... moreFlash 10.1 support for Windows Mobile will be realize later this year. First it was Android, then WinMo and Symbian will follow.
Hello guys! Please tell me, why IE mobile doesn't support flash? What is this? Is it joke or something else? Microsoft is sleeping! May be windows mobile sux. I love my experia X2 but may be windows mobile is going down because many companies stops working and supporting this operation system! Can you tell me guys, why SKYFIRE stop working and supporting their browser for my country Bulgaria of 1st july? Can you tell me then how can I watch my favourites clips in the net? Wich browser I am supposed to pick? May be I had to get another phone with android because everyone of the companies starts to support this OS. Microsoft even restricts mozilla to make mozilla mobile. What is this? Another joke? I am tottaly disappointed of windows mobile. Anyone can help me to recomend me something? Thanks in advance.

It is a nightmare. I´ve had an T640, K750, K800i, P1i, then another P1i, all were good phones.
X2 is the last piece of crap I have ever saw. Unstable system, it constantly hangs, I´ve removed the battery 20-30 times in the last month.
The morning call is a mess, you have to be a wizard to install a simple "classic phone"-ringtone, otherwise you will never hear your phone ringing outdoor.
I had a lot of expectations from X2, but it is the last SE ever in my life! I am sooooo disapointed!
Greenheart, 28 Jun 2010anyone tell me what color would be nice of a X2, because im planning to buy a X2 and I dont kn... moreIf I were you I would go for the silver! Because the silver on the X2 is very unique and shiny, it's much better than the silver that you see on other handsets. I also compared the silver on the x2 with the satio, and the silver on the satio looked dull and unattractive compared to the x2.
On the other hand there are a lot of black handsets in the market already right? So why not get a unique color for this awesome phone :)
