i really hate nokia x6 because of its yellowish display resolution and poor picture quality, compared to high resolution display of sony ericsson phones. that's why i stop buying nokia phones, it really disappoint me.
my X8 now run on froyo, its faster and smooth, UI is better than eclair, but it still has some bugs. Video recording broken n manually headset set up. Maybe for next development the froyo porting will be perfect, just wait and see
This is a very nice phone if you how to use it.
First of all - almost all stock apps such as music player, gallery or camera software - SUCK!
But, this is an Android so that can be easily fixed..
I recommend you to install appplanet.net app. With this you are able to access almost all paid apps from real Market for free, with UI similiar to one on THE Market.
I reccomend 3D Gallery - for gallery app, Player Pro or Power Amp - for music player, Camera 360 Ultimate instead of stock camera soft.
Then install Launcher pro. This will replace original Homescreen and app drawer. The advantge is up to 7 homescreens (phone will look like HTC UI), more widgets per homescreen, and hiding useless apps on app drawer. There's also a dock, and lots of other customization options. Lite version of app is available on Market. It's very fast too :D
Most important thing is to make a frimware update from 1.6 to 2.1.*.
I recommend rooting the phone and installing link2sd (no app2sd) so you can put apps you SELECT on the memory card. With app2sd you move all of them which is not very good.
Memory card for best performance should be class 6 or more, I'm not sure does X8 support class 10.
Class 2, 4, 6... stands for perfromace of the card.
Few tips to save battery life: -turn off 3G, WiFi, BT when not needed, reduce screen brightness to
just bought it, quite nice coz a new colour of black.. did not know yet any speciality of it function, anyway i love the features!...
Installing apps are storing in SD cards or phone memory? how much memory takes for install?...reply me anyone asap.
damn, I think I got the faulty one. in first day I bought it, I installed the angry birds and it can't be played at all coz the display is always blinking and choppy. some other games that I installed have the same problem. it become worse after I updated it to android 2.1. now all the user interface like main menu, homescreen, onscreen keyboard is always blinking and choppy. on the se service center, they says the problem is the lcd screen, and they need 2 weeks for repair it. now I'm still waiting for it
allain, 22 Feb 2011I had no plan on buying a new phone but sad to say my nokia n91 just died last week after 5 ye... moreNice review, I agree with you. I gave one to my gf last year and she was really amazed by it. Did you update your firmware to Android 2.1? It will even be better with it...
I had no plan on buying a new phone but sad to say my nokia n91 just died last week after 5 years of good service. I really love that phone.. But life must go on. So I went to the mall and no idea what phone should i purchase. I went to nokia,samsung and lg booths but i don't like thre phones especially nokia's touch screens. When i was in the SE's booth,my eyes was drawn on this white cute phone. The x8. It was made up of plastic but doesn't feel cheap at all,and i must admit that i'm not attracted to cheap materials but this one looks cool and modern. it has its own uniqueness.
I was expecting that the UI is not that good because of its price..but when i played around the phone i was amazed. it is really nice and very responsive. The phone is really good with is transitions and graphics. Its a very cute and sweet phone that you will love.
I really love the phone so i decided to purchase it.
My friends also like the phone especially the aquamarine back cover. Good web browser,facebook and utube apps. The camera is on the average side but on daylight it has a good picture quality. The 3.5mm jack and wifi are also a plus points. The music player and FM radio is nice and the audio quality is clear and crisp. What i love about this phone is the messaging. Its really cute and fast. The timescape feature is also cool. The wallpaper backgrounds of the phone are cute because of the nice screen resolution and u can download more of then. I actually change everyday. It comes with a free 2gb memory card.
Over all,i really love the X8. Its 8/10 for me.
Very nice phone for its price. Its very worth it.
