To those having great dilemmas on buying this phone or an android phone in this range, you can read this!
Hello guys, I just got the phone 3 days ago.
My comment, --- GREAT!
It's a very nice phone. I have been an se fan since my last phone, naite, and this is my first smartphone. I'm very happy that I made the very right decision! It's a very nice, fun and entertaining phone! My choices were: galaxy 5, galaxy mini, lg optimus one.
Why did I choose x8?
-I trust SE, that's kinda biased.
-vs. galaxy 5 and galaxy mini, it has hvga screen res, it's kinda a big deal to me since it affects a lot about your market application choice and browsing experience. Hvga is a hundred times better!
-vs. lg optimus one, they say LG has screen issues, I don't want to risk my gaming experiences in Android with that.
so I chose x8.
Here are my honest comments:
-Really fluid and fast. Make sure you install task killer to efficiently use your RAM easily! No lag whatsoever. Just perfect UI experience, and I love the ui XD.
-Next thing, the first day I got the phone I already installed eclair into it(2.1) --- Just great! So many additional features! Live wallpapers, updated market and pre-installed apps, office suite!, etc. etc., and no frills! No problem at all! By the way, I updated through usb, (I downloaded software updater from SE site.) I thought updating over the air is kinda risky especially with unstable network, so no problem at all! 2.1 is perfect with my x8!
-600 Mhz, not the most powerful, with games, still very fun and playable with almost no lag but of course it's not the fastest around, but FLUID FAST with phone ui!
-Web browsing, 3G or WiFi, no problem! Very usable! Fast and no lags, tabbed sites useful and many features.
-Telephony/Texting/Mail/etc. - Does the job with no problem! And timescape adds some fun and comfort too!
-Music/Radio, I believe naite was clearer with headphone quality, but it's still very loud, and also gives nice music experience!
-I don't use maps/navigation. :))
-Gaming- great! Make sure you kill unused apps so you get fast and fun gaming! Android market surely gives you a lot of nice game choices.
Camera- 3mp, okay. XD but it's got no AF nor flash, nothing special, and I don't use camera that much.
Video- Great! vga@30fps really crisp and high quality!
-Eclair doesn't allow me to install many apps in the phone and the small/mediocre phone memory doesn't help either.
-mediocre still shots
-no multitouch! Aww.
-Battery is a big pain, I have to charge it everyday because I use so many features on the phone everytime.
Sooo that's it I hope I helped anyone needing for opinions. Ask me anything and I'll try :D

I used to have this since I used to be a big fan of Sony Ericsson but due to the phone`s software,hardware & features limitation I've replace my X8 with the Samsung Galaxy Ace. What can I say?! I am now a convert. Samsung do really gives you your money's worth when you buy their phones. Goodbye Sony Ericsson. Looking forward to have the Samsung Galaxy S II!
Bought this phone a week ago and I'm experiencing many problems already..
I thought this phone was going to be a good one but it's not.. Auto-Restart/Shutdown.. Camera force close.. No zoom & no flash.. Gets slow.. Simple phone with no very extraordinary features.. Touch screen sometimes doesn't work.. I'm gonna throw this one in the trash can.. BAD PHONE

c5-03 is not a gud phone made by nokia
operating system is not so gud.....
it doesnt even have a proximity sensor which locks the touchscreen the momemt u put it on ur ear so while u attend a phone ull first have to take care of locking the screen or u might tap something on the screen wid ur chin.......... its body is glossy fingerprint magnet, everytime u'll find urself wiping it with ur shirt
.......also the screen viewing angles are BAD
all the disadvantages i wrote above are corrected in x8
