well, i'm a sony fan so what the heck this is my transition. k750 (smiling) -> w705 (ok) -> xperia x8 (smiling). so far the impression left on me was the same as that my first k750 so for me this is a good phone. I don't know about the haters but I'd say this is a very good phone for the value. I got this phone for php5,500 in a plan so for me it was quite a blow out. here is how I would rate the 3 phone with 10 as the highest from k750 to w705 to x8,
camera functionality 9, 7, 8
music via loudspeaker 9, 8, 8
music via headphone 9, 9, 8
loudness of music, 8, 9, 10
texting convenience 10, 9, 8
organization of text 8, 9, 10
connectivity 7, 9, 9
speed of the phone 9, 9, 9
internet browsing, 7, 8, 9
screen 7, 8, 9
well that is my opinion. anyways I am again very happy with my phone. Hey for the complainers I don't know about you but for me for the very cheap acquisition price, I find myself lacking the right to complain haha. Thanks sony for another great phone. But you know sony for all those units without a front facing camera, I do hope you create a tiny accessory that can be appended to our unit to do video calls. Now that would be very neat.
I've installed PowerAMP, and hv selected /sdcard/music/ on the settings, but my songs did not appear in this app.
I can see them when opened the preinstalled music player. Do I have to select all folders listed in the music folder setting or what...? Or is this because I use the trial version?
anaya, 03 Feb 2011is rooting safe?Yeah! And your phone will work better...

I bought X8 a month ago and everything was fine. it's few days that connection to operator is lost. all other functions are working except connection to network. just like it is on flight mode. sim is working in other phones. I'm sure that the there is something wrong with phone. I did factory setting also with no use. can somebody help.
i'm not explore it fully but for me it's quite worthly.. it's a reasonable for smartphone for having it.. but most of it stylish for me..
hey i wanna know how to activate internet on the x8 cause im getting very annoyed cause it aint working
AnonD-418, 02 Feb 2011What I notice is, when you want to save on battery, put it in GSM only, if you want to use WCD... moreWhich widgets, is it the status switch? Then what icon should I tap to switch between GSM and GSM/3G?
