nippu, 13 Jan 2013Hi frnd hw to upgrad x8 phn to android v.4.1how do you upgrade?
Its a very fast smartphone... ON CUSTOM ROMS!!!(2.3.7 and 4.1.2)
I've had this phone for 3 years now and I'm very satisfied with it. I got it for free from my phone company and tried it with its original software, wich was very dissapointing. Then I rooted it and tried many roms until I found one from www.xorom.tk (based on MiniCM6) wich fullfilled my expectatives.
Of course, as many of you said, you cannot expect wonders out of a cheap 600mhz and 168mb RAM with little memory space. But I played countless games like Angry birds without problems and I always use it like car and trekking gps with sygic maps and oruxmaps and never had a problem until now that the battery runs out too quickly. But that happens to every rechargearble battery device.
WEBHEAD, 07 Jan 2013Can you please share the links for kernel and ROM?go through xda developers website and u'll get to know about roms and kernals
I m saying the same IT IS RUBBISH do not buy it, too slow it take 3 sec just to appear the locking screen while being locked so imagine the daily use >
good phone to play with if u r not a noob in installing custom rom and unlocking bootloader, im using primehd 10 rom with kernal alfs v80 cm7, phone is super fast and i can play dead space without lag....

I admit the phone is a bit slow sometimes, but what do expect from a 600mhz processor and a 175mb ram? If you want smth that has peak performance u have to pay at least 3 times what this costed 2 years ago. Of course I wouldnt recommend some1 to buy it now, but if you bought it 1-2 years ago, you shouldnt have any complaints. Unfortunatly I cant bootload mine to install a custom kernel since it is 11w49, but even with the stock kernel you cn install many great custom roms, like kuyandroid v4.5.4 [based on CyanogenMod7(based on gingerbread 2.3.7)], which i have installed, and get many more options. Plus u cn overclock it to 710mHz, where most x8s are stable, and get a pretty good phone. I have met at least 10 ppl that have this phone and have no problems, so if some1 has one that gives them problems, well, you got unlucky... Mine works fine 2 years now, even thou I have dropped it down countless times, and it still has no problems. The only thing I could complain about, is the battery cover design. I mean, just why??
this phone is rubbish, whoever is thinking of buying it DONT. i will never be buying another SE again. im already on my 4th replacement of this in 1.5 years because it keeps shutting itself down and not turning on. its slow, screen resolution is EXTREMELY poor and very limited features for an android phone compared to say a samsung.
This phone is awful. It freezes constantly, crashes all the time but the biggest problem of all is that it won't charge properly- it has been off for repair twice and it STILL doesn't work. I bought this phone originally because it had good reviews- WHOEVER I READING THIS PLEASE DO NOT BUY
waste your money. it will mess up ur brain. only reason is internal storage. damn low space to download apps n cant even move apps to sd card as it is 2.1 eclairs. enjoy ur loss on buying this pho
