This was my first Android phone ever. I remember getting excited about using multi touch. Great memories.

                I have this phone until now. It is still in working condition, have some minor scratch. The battery have not replaced before. Now I keep it in my cabinet. I still remember, my mainly used phone (iPhone 4s) is stolen. I use back my old X8 as my main phone for about 6 months until I am gifted a Samsung Galaxy S3. That time, as a student is not a problem at all for sms and call. This phone become one part of my youth memory. The overall disadvantage of this phone is lack of multi-touch support.

                  Sony Ericsson xperia X8 reminds me of my 1st vivid memories n experience of a smartphone.. It was way ahead of its time... Esp Design wise, usability. N just consumer appeal... The Timescape mode was the best of the very best..

                    I have it for 9 years, have been a backup phone since it can no longer support latest apps. If any of my expensive smartphone going down i'm using this phone for basic call and sms. This phone tough like tank and amazingly the battery still runs excellent and havemore power stamina than todays smartphone.

                      This is my favorite phone all the time.

                          Nicknam, 17 Oct 2018OLD, BUT GOLD. It was the best phone that I had. It w... moreYou were so lucky with your X8, my X8 couldn't be bootloader-unlocked so I was stuck on 2.3.7

                            OLD, BUT GOLD.

                            It was the best phone that I had. It was compact and full of features. There was a lot of support on XDA-developers for this device, so many custom ROMs, kernels and mods.

                            I remember, when I got my first smartphone (Xperia X8). I was amazed by its features (GPS, WiFi, Android apps...). Then I realised that java2me phones became useless. I couldn't go back to non-Android devices any more.
                            It lost usability, when its stock Android 2.1 became unsupported by many apps. Then, I decided to revive it, so I installed custom ROM Cyanogenmod 9 (ICS) with custom kernel. I used to overclock it, play games, install system mods, tweak software, customize it... Only thing I didn't like is armv6 CPU, which can't support newer apps.
                            Once it was accidentally laundered in washing machine, but I revived it later. It is in pretty good condition now, except some stains inside display.

                            I still have it today, but it is outdated device, so it isn't in use.

                                      That's because it was my first Android phone as well and my "normal" phone broke a while ago. Surprisingly this phone is still usable as daily driver, but it's a shame that some Apps like the "Market" App (before Google Play), YouTube and WhatsApp aren't supported anymore.
