Apps that I have on my X8:
Astro File Manager - for file management, .apk installation, move/cut/copy/paste files from diff folders
adw launcher - so you can install multiple widgets per home screen (i've got adw launcher ex, better performance though)
Winamp - to create/manage playlist on your X8; you can also use meridian player (both are free)
arcmedia - to play almost all types of video formats (tried and tested .avi files)
Documents to go - create/modify office documents (docs, spreadsheet, ppt). and also serves as pdf viewer

Just check chinese keyboard settings and you will be able to put it back to non-qwerty. No need to install handcent sms or any keyboard software on ur X8
Hi guys. I want to get a numerical keyboard for texting. So i've installed handcent sms and also handcent keyboard. I've also installed all the language packages available for handcent. I can get predictive (T9) text input but only in english. And i've already enabled the Portuguese language package. Does anyone have a solution? Or maybe someone found a different way to get alphanumerical keyboard with predictive input...
P.S. Loving the phone. It's an absolute great value for money...
just bought this phone on 1st of jan.
upgrading from sony p1i to x8!
Sound=sound quality is good and loud enough.the default music player is average,always theres an android market to find better music player with equalizer!
Camera=camera quality is poor,no zoom.but video quality is nice and high FPS.can take sports video clearly.
UI=simple and easy to use UI.Im new to Android and i can easily understand this UI.One things i can say is Android Rocks!better than iphone cos with android.we have widget we can put at our homescreen.just that for x8 were limited to 1 widget to one homescreen..
the best parts of Android is Android Market.its comes in every android phone u buy.just find internet connectivity wifi/3g/gprs and u can download as many apps and games as u want.just to limited of the market is some apps are intended for certain region only.and there comes ANDROID MARKET ENABLER for you able to get apps and games from the whole world.

- Battery Issue.
I've downloaded Advance Task killer and Tweak the phone a lot, (lowered brightness level to 30-40%, Turned of Data Transfer / Closed Unwanted Applications).
But still battery life drains so much. Help ....
I also noticed that battery heats up while charging. (phone is turned off)
xperia x8 for sure look what i wrote below for specifications of the phone
if i have 200 dollars or s.th, what is your suggestion among this; Xperia x8, Nokia 5800, htc touch2 and samsung galaxy 3? Please help!
this is xperia x8 opinion place ... go there and see what ppl say - -
can anyone help me how to zoom in camera of xperia x10 mini......there is no option of zoom in camera while taking a pic....
I bought SE Experia X8 before 2 days and let me tell you my opinions about it :
CAMERA - this phone is not for photography.. 3.15 MP camera is not for shooting..poor quality.Good at sunlight only.Video recording is good.
SOUND - well i can say the sound is vry good too clear and average loudness.
INTERNET - Didn't tried the Wifi still but i know is good and stable from other peoples.
BATTERY - In the beginning at the first day after charging 12 hours battery drops to 0% for 1 day.. i sad - WTF not normal i used it 3-5 hours only.. BUT Don't worry there is a way to make battery life longer.Go to Settings - Applications - Manage apps and running services.There you will see lots of apps that don't need to be active.Very helpful is to DL from the android market - Advanced Task killer - faster and easier.Other good thing is when you don't use internet go to Settings - Wireless and Networks - Mobile Netwoks - Data traffic ON/OFF.its good when you don't use internet to shut down all Inet connection..it drain battery life a lot.
SCREEN - Sensitivity - Brilliant just perfect very good and sensitive screen with perfect quality !!
I am with android version 2.1 how to upgrade from 1.6 to 2.1 : Download SE PC Companion and from there is easy to do it.
For those who asked for the Bluetooth problem - when you want to send picture or song go to the file press on it for 2 secs and menu will appear for sending it or just it will appear top left on the screen.
GPS - perfect for me simple with Google maps it shows perfect the location where you are and its moving exact when you move or turn around.
Speed of phone - Extra just perfect everything is loading faster and good.
I hope i helped with my post to people that wonder what to buy or helped with the management of the phone :)
