x8 is maximum upgradable to 2.1, not for 2.2 becoz 2.2 require 256mb ram, mean while it has only 168 mb. So guys stick to 2.1.
I just got this phnoe yesterday and I'm loving it! Although i could have gotten the X10 if i have enough budget but still noregrets in getting the X8 since I already have the Hazel if I'm really after the camera. Hopefully, SE would provide a sw upgrade for this phone to v2.1 or 2.2 before the year ends. Only issue that I have is with the Sync function. I've already signed up for a sync account on the SE site but I'm still having a problem activating it on my phone. Such issue doesn't occur on my Hazel. Any idea how can i fix it guys?
it's run o many apliation in one time(they turn on back if you turn them manualy)
THERE IS NO MEGABASS! liers|!
it's have very small speaker..
but all other staff is good ;) only ending call is bad.
this a phone ..!!
just buy and netbook equiped with atom
if you guys wanna running many services :D
i've one, and enjoy enough as is,
i dont care with the version
and i had have anything i need already,
browser, chat, email anything ...
it might be upgradable like x10, coz less in a month after it released in my country (indonesia) it just hard to find n the price's got significant increase over the x10 mini.
it's a nice phone to buy, but maybe wait n see are much better than disapointed, wait for x12.
i bought this really cool looking handset yesterday and almost all things are positive. There are some negative issues like android 1.6 and no flash(although it takes good pics). The phone is a must buy if your budget matches it.
I am using this phone for 2 weeks now. Bought it for 13.8k in bangalore.
Positives: Touch is really gud, resolution is also gr8 for a 3 inch screen, screen size is just gud enough..facing difficulties while typing msgs but now i can do it realy fast no issues, music is gud not as gud as sony walkman but its gud, camera is nothing to shout about but who cares about the flash and auto focus atleast i dont coz i have a camera, processor is fast last but not the least it looks really cool
negatives: when u start typing it hangs for a fraction of a sec for the first letter only then it works real fast, when u open so many apps and dont close properly u wont know which are open and phone gets really slow...i have installed an antivirus which also shows open apps, sometimes need to restart the ph if it gets real slow, few ppl mentioned about restarting while playing videos but i didnt face that I have many videos which are as heavy as 30 mb for a 3 min video. no flash player for 1.6 i hope it comes for 2.1, battery is ok but if you use inter too much it will drain fast,
