i wonder why the x1 voting results are higher then e71&bold?

I have used theX1 - unfortunately!

and I have used several - it was hard for me to beleive SE can make such a flop.

But I ma not the only one think this.

SE X1 was selected and published as:

˝X1 is one of the biggest flop of 2008!˝

˝It may have been the most eagerly awaited telephone of the year... and it may well have been the most disappointing telephone of the year, too. Introduced in February with (almost) operational prototypes, the phone has only just become available in stores. Its “revolutionary” Windows Mobile interface was not only slow, but it also wasn’t any more functional than other operating systems from HTC, Samsung or Asus. And since there’s only one Windows Mobile model from Sony Ericsson, developments for the proprietary interface, quite naturally, are scarce. What was supposed to be the ultimate smartphone is at best only passable, and at worst a total failure.˝

In case you are so lucky to get a good working one - be happy but do not question others´integrity.

George, 04 Apr 2009I got the X1 one week ago & I am suffering from charging the bat... moreTO me it seems quite odd. However, it takes couple of charges before the battery can work on its full capacity. It could take such a long time maybe due to a faulty adapter? Or the power requirements arent the same?(like 110V or 220V)

I got the X1 one week ago & I am suffering from charging the battery, as it takes aroung 5-6 hours just to charge the battery, however the battery is OK as it stays for 1 to 1.5 day with huge usage including, push mail, intentet, lots of voice calls & SMSs)
Please help me, should I return it or its nprmal to take such time in charging it
Thanks & waiting your soonest feedback

Well I've had Nokia's for the past 4 years and know how it works, now that I purchased an X1a. I've got to tell you there's so many retrictions for Symbian users, WinMo is the clear winner over Symbian. It's early days on my 1st WinMo device and I still have a lot to learn, so many possibilities with WinMo. On other forums like HoFo, all they can say is WinMo sucks because its too complicatied. Everytime I see that I think to myself too complicated for their caveman brain(me make call, me no use WinMo).

1: poor reception

2: lousy camera

3: unreliable OS - WinMo

4: outrages quality control - cracked cases

5: bad battery performance

6: slow performance

7: xxK color :)))

8: limited memory (internal)


1: SE has an excuse - made by HTC

2: SE promised never let HTC make another SE model

3: not made by Sagem (like other SE models)

4: new model is announced already (Idou)

5: most people not surpriced

6: offered free with return/echange policy

7: slow sales (not many people got burned with this model)

8: it used to be very expensive

No wonder SE loses money each quarter.

Anonymous, 02 Apr 2009i've had this phone for almost 2 months. first week was great. t... moreI was very exited on buying this after reading all this good review on it.... but as for my user experience... i would say very disapointing...

becasue of the small screen size and the always logging part. have to soft reset 2X a day..

low phone memory!!!!!!!!!!!!

the only thing great is that it is WINDOWS Mobile with many application.. but even that u cannot enjoy because of logging.. hanging..

Not worth the price i would go for the OMNIA or the HTC Pro2....

  • Divy

Hey! i realy like this phone. Can anyone please tell me if it has the msn messenger application? as i dont see it in the screen shots...
