˝The most disappointing about X1 is its speed. The handset is slow, it’s very slow. We have to wait a couple of seconds for the programs to launch, screen switches aren’t fast either,.....˝

Having it on my 10th day, good build quality, nice keyboard.
Not so happy with panel, installed touchflo 3D instead. I was then quite happy with the phone.

But the more calls I made, the more unhappy I am with the reception. It's dropping too many calls and sometimes unable to make one.

general impression, the reception is worse than the HTC diamond and N95 i had.

Engadget noticed the problem in their review. There is also a post on the xda x1 forum about it(not by me, lol)

Nobody should be even considering any negative remarks by any of those "anonymouse" losers who never had the luxury to even look at the real Xperia and now are giving reviews like they had it and it gave them so much problems that they returned it. Most of these are basically Nokia 3310 or 1100 poor users who don't even know what a good mobile means...LOL

To all SE Lovers...just don't listen to these contineus rants about Xperia being outdated or buggy or battery time not good or anything like that, most of these posts if you observe has the same pattern which is ...loads of bulls*it and NO facts.

Xperia is one of the best mobile to hit market and those who neither have the money to buy it nor has the ability to understand the basics of an WM device are posting crap about this set.
And add those who are literally pulling thier hairs off with frustration since thier "favourite" brand has completely failed to produce a set which can match Xperia in style and functionality...and with that ugly brick called N96 failing so badly...yeah all those loyal fans in thier desperation only can do what they always do, that is ...LIE
Xperia is neither buggy nor outdated, for any person who has a working brain and ability to understand new things, new concepts..its a perfect device. But its so sad that many people in this world have the brain of the size of a peanut and they can't accept that some other brand can produce an equally or better device than their "beloved" brand. Its pathetic if you ask me but thats how it is and we will have to bear those losers wether we want it or not. So just don't listen to those pathetic remarks by people who have never even seen a real Xperia with their own eyes and are trying to be an expert on this sssue.
Xperia is BRILLIANT!!!!

Hi All ,

65K colors for the large LCD? that for a $$$?
why they didn't make it 16m?
I seen this issue with all new Windows Phones
maybe then it will need a graphical card like PCs.

also it is the only one with 800x480 pixels screen
best seen so far.

also why the camera 3.2 without Xenon Flash
and why SE Zoom is 3x only?
Nokia beaten this with upto 20x long time ago

beside the above
this phone is best ever phone I ever seen

But if you need an independent pro-reviewer´s word:

˝The most disappointing about X1 is its speed. The handset is slow, it’s very slow. We have to wait a couple of seconds for the programs to launch, screen switches aren’t fast either,.....˝

ian, 19 Nov 2008That'is prove, that you just big lie, a.k.a bull sh#t. http:/... moreX1 has more speed than any device? :))))))

Dozens of users complain about buggy software and slowness.

A business student or recent graduate who knows what purpose can not tell me that the X1 is the fastest phone ever. Thai is a joke!

CPU performance do not cover real time application speed. See Windows x.x, XP, Vista etc. with the same CPU.

I tell you all - do not trust anybody but your own experience. Go and try the X1 for a few days with good return policy.
You will see or you will wait alot.

path, 18 Nov 2008For all those how is crying for review checks this out http://bl... moreHey Path,

yeah buddy that is a good review. Anybody who has bothered to write something on this site, should have a read of that review.

And Wong, if you are still going on about the 65K colour thing, I think this phone is not for you, you should look for something a little more simple. Good luck.

  • Wong

65K colors for the large LCD? thae for a $$$? I think it's not worth buying this phone at this time.
