this phone sucks i bought my x8 at sony ericsson SM North last june 10, my wife brought it to cebu June 15 the phone just shot down and wont open and charge anymore...she went home june 18 from cebu and we return the unit and they replaced the battery and it turns on...the following I used it and bring it to the office fully charged (8 am) before 5 pm the battery is empty and it wont open and charge again for the 2nd time...returned it again and they said that they are goin to monitor it and if they found out that theres really a problem they going to repair it which is i did not allow to, i buy it brand new and only uses it for total of 5 - 6 days. then we come up with the deal that we are going to leave the phone and they will monitor the performance of the battery and any kind of repair will not be allowed and we insist of replacement of unit. after 2 days go back to sony ericsson they said the battery is normal they replaced the charger...at home around 2am the battery is 37% and we are sleepy so we shot the phone cause we are planning to charge it when we wake up to my surprise even if the unit is turn off it wont open again when we wake up...In other words the unit is been replaced and now i used it for the first time i found out that the ear piece is broken i cant hear the person calling me unless you use the loud speaker!I am so disappointed with ericsson and i will not buy any sony ericsson phone anymore!!!today i am going to return this unit and ask for replacement again!!!!!what a waste of time!!!and if theres a problem i wont hesitate to sue them in NTC for selling a bad quality of phone!!!!
shahid, 27 Jun 2011This phone is good. Camera and sound quality in Mic much good.performa of msg so nice. But th... moreOfficial upgrade is not going to happen, at least that is what I think, however there are a lot of options, for example I have floyo .25
you'll find all roms for ur mobile in this website
ma friend is usin it fr his mobile x8 & it works great
Xperia X8 does not have Multi touch ,camera has no Zoom. I am disappointed, these should be specified.
Handset is fine. But battery backup is bad. Whether someother anrdroid version is better for X8.
patos, 26 Jun 2011hi will i lose all apps if i do a custom rom install of floyo 0.30, is there any way i can bac... moreno work around sorry, majority of the apps in your stock rom won't be imported directly to your phone during a rom upgrade, the best thing you can do is do a backup apk for each of your apps in your stock rom then after that you can install your custom rom and use android assistant for batch uninstall, then install all apps again one by one
dineshreddy, 26 Jun 2011guys i got my phone rooted succesfully.........but i got prob at custom rom 2.2 cynogen mod...... moredon't forget to do a fullwipe of your phone, go back to xrecovery then try to to a fullwipe, if it doesn't work restore again to floyo .25 then fullwipe again
This phone is good.
Camera and sound quality in Mic much good.performa of msg so nice. But there is no file manager and no option of choosing of apps install in phone and sdcard.and no upgrade more than 2.1
It's good phone for low price..but main downside is low battery backup...i bought this 2 weeks ago...i have to charge it day by day..now i;m going to get froyo on it..but i can't find good froyo custom rom for it..if some one know about gud froyo rom...pls tell me...thanks
The custom ROM Froyo 2.2 (Floyo 0.25) has wifi bug and struggles in video playback, though the rest is okay. I changed it now to W8 Walkman ROM Eclair 2.1 with Laucnher Pro and everything seems running smoothly so far. I modified everything and the end product is a mix of HTC Clock & Wallpaper, iPhone Icons in Homescreen with Sony Ericsson skin + audio effects equalizer application.
this is the best phone in poor price android phons,i buy this 6 month later...
