*good for basic internet browsing(email, twitter, facebook)
*easy to use, simple layout for menus. to fully customize your phone, you can download stuff on android market
*camera - basic 3mp is good enough. for picture effects go to android market and download camera applications.
*Maps app - is very useful for unfamiliar location. GPS is real time (depends on the signal coming from your network subscriber)
*based on my experience, my phone already fell on the floor (waist/chest height)more that 5 times already and its 2yrs old and it is still working fine phone's processing abilities is still ok does not freeze or run slow. just some minor scratches on the side.
downloaded and installed applications in android market are saved in phone memory. that means your 2GB/8GB/16GB memory card is only useful for pictures, MP3, videos etc. you need to get your phone rooted first then upgrade to Gingerbread to have your apps saved in your memory card.
battery life? depends how your phone is setup or how often do you use it for music, watching videos, taking pictures. for me, my X8 is 2yrs old and I often use it as a music player, text and call. full charged batt lasts up to 12hrs. and i think it's not bad.
this phone has a fair price for its features.
Great phone - great for games, apps, music and so easy to use . I luv it
it is a gud phone, l have 7 months using it and the only problem is the battery life!!!

If its hardware issue, you can give it to Sony Service Centre for free repair under warranty. Of course they will fix software issues as well. This is your best option.
Even then if doesn't work, someone sold you a defective piece.

sushil, 12 Dec 2012Frnds How Can Uadate My Android version Please tell me fastIts a risky process. It involves Rooting, Unlocking Bootloader, Flashing Kernel and Flashing Custom ROM to get best out of your device.
Either refer the XDA forums for detailed steps or refer to my guide that I prepared just yesterday:
This will help you to install MiniCM10 (Jellybean) ROM on your X8.
1) This document is OK as per my knowledge. However it has not been reviewed by any expert yet. You can refer to this guide and follow the embedded links to cross verify, and install the ROM.
2) I have already Rooted and installed Ginger DX ROM on my X8. Though , not sure if I unlocked Bootloader as well. I did it 5-6 months ago.
Disclaimer - Installing custom ROM is completely on your wish. If you end up bricking/damaging your phone, I am not responsible for it. Do it on your own risk.
Let me know how it goes.
frends can anybody tell how to install android 2.3 in x8, guide me, reply to email@example.com
Actually, I installed Alt.V7.3, it's an excellent and fast ROM, it has ICS's theme, beautiful! I recomend it!!
And it's so easy to install!!!...
Custmoisability is ultimate for this phone, comparing itz counterparts in the same price scale. Sure, newer devices are better, in camera, processor, etc but i'd keep this phone as an archive rather than selking if i ever buy a newer phone, cz once u root, and unlock bootloader(if u can), itz pretty satisfactory..
I installed FroyoPro v2.5. Unfortunately it's impossible to unlock the bootloader on my device(for free anyway), so anything I do would have to be done on stock kernel. However, I'm satisfied with the performance. Just ditch the stock ROM and root.
