Summary: "The phone has no ability to stay connected to the network. You're glad if the phone stays on for longer than 12hrs. Touch screen use is also quite frustrating in that the response is either inaccurate or very slow. There's also no satistactory key lock. Useless phone in my opinion, I'm getting rid of it asap.
Summary: I purchased this phone because I wanted a smartphone that wouldn't break my budget. However, upon receiving it, I quickly discovered that the Windows OS on the phone was definitely not as easy to use as Android. Plus, since it's Windows, I couldn't download any Android apps to the phone. It also seemed to drop calls quite quickly. In short, I would recommend spending a little extra for a smartphone that works well, especially if you plan on downloading apps to it.
Summary: This phone is not practical, it needs extra care and it is highly sensitive. Sometimes the pen does not work.Moreover; it is like a portable computer. It has Microsoft word, power point, and excel. It is a really complicated phone in my point of view.
This phone was a nightmare! I hate it with a passion

Summary: Here is a review of the Xperia X1. I have owned the X1, HTC Touch Pro2, HTC HD2, Nokia E90, Nokia E72, Nokia N95 and Apple iPhone. Other than the iPhone, I really hate this phone. 1) Build Quality - the plastic on this phone peeled off everywhere! The finishing on this phone is very susceptible to friction. The plastic chrome will peel off. The paint on the metal battery cover will scratch or peel off. The internal housing will crack.
Summary: i bought this phone because of the reviews it got, 1st i do like having a unlocked phone, but being a at&t customer, let me tell you there is NO support from them, every single problem i had with the phone, i had to Google or find answers online. Don't believe the hype even Sony would not help me, all they kept saying is contact your service provider, and my "service provider" said call Sony.
Summary: This is a beautiful phone, but it is very over priced. you can find phones with similar feature and far more durable for a cheaper price. some keys on my keyboard does not work no more. my old sony ericsson p1i is even easier to use and have features that you'll need daily than this xperia.
Summary: I was very excited to get this phone when it first came but I have to say that it was all disappoints to follow. First flaw with the phone is that they chose Windows as their operating system. The phone crashes a lot, you can't control the speaker levels (bass, treble, etc.) and the things take forever to load. My husband uses the Iphone and it is SO much better. I am sorry to say that for the price...this is NOT worth it.
Excerpt: Bought one this morning from Carphone Warehouse, took it straight back in the afternoon. Felt like I was using an old Ipaq pda! Apart from the "Pannels/windows" view, its the same Windows mobile - feels outdated compared to whats available now. Sluggish, screen very small, overall operaitions very fiddly. Camera very bad as is Video...Speaker sound very low and tinny (Blackberrry bold puts it to shame - in so many different areas.).
Excerpt: Had one delivered yesterday, sending it back today. Software problems, like clock giving different times in different screen frames, dodgy ringtone (noy a great choice and great sound anyway). Contacted SonyEricsson UK, got the answer: at the moment these are not curable. suppose we'll have to wait for ServicePack1. At this price? I'll wait for another model, from another brand.
