Sony X10 Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: We’d rather hoped that Sony Ericsson would have nailed the basics by now, but text messaging and calling on the X10 left a lot to be desired. It’s a bit of a let down, especially after the long wait we’ve had for the handset to make an appearance – it was first announced almost six months ago.
Summary: To call the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini small does not do this smartphone justice: it is the teeniest, tiniest smartphone I've seen. The phone's miniscule size has its advantages -- this phone is quite cute, and will easily slip into a pocket.
Summary: On paper, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 sounds like a good deal at $149. It has specs that rival higher priced phones, including a 4-inch display and 1-GHz processor, and the Mediascape and Timescape apps add some real utility and entertainment value to the typical Android experience.
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10a is undeniably a solid high end Android phone. It’s great looking, well made and the specs are positively top notch. The camera handily beats the Nexus One and the Samsung Captivate.
Pros: Top notch specs, very large capacitive touch screen., Top notch hardware and good looking too. Excellent 4” capacitive touch screen, top-of-the-line 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, great camera, enjoyable software customizations. Solid reception and fast data speeds on AT&T’s 3G network. Very good audio qua...
Cons: Runs older Android OS version, battery life is so-so., Ships with old version of Android OS, battery life is so-so, the unlock screen and Sony Ericsson software keyboard make us want to bang our heads.
Sony Ericsson's first Android smartphone, the XPERIA X10, looks impressive but falls behind some of the strong smartphone offerings from competitors

Summary: We really want to like the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, but as it stands, it has too many niggling issues to recommend. If Sony Ericsson upgrades its software to correct the performance issues then this will be a very impressive smartphone.
Pros: Impressive 4in display, sleek design, visually impressive UI, Mediascape app much better than regular Android offering, 8-megapixel camera
Cons: Largely plastic build, sluggish performance, Android 1.6 rather than 2.1, keyboard isn't as polished as the iPhone's, no multitouch
Conclusion: As a first attempt at a new direction for a mobile phone company it is a good effort. There are some positive signs, with a large screen, fast processor and a fairly comprehensive social networking application built into the OS.
Pros: Large screen, fast processor
Cons: No multi touch, no offline charging possible, Old version of Android used, Gmail inconsistencies and problems
Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 then looks ill-fated. We've drawn out some of the flaws we found above, many of which could be changed with revised software. It perhaps suggests that the X10 is arriving to market before it is really ready to do so.
Pros: Camera, big screen is great for watching videos
Cons: Timescape and Mediascape could be much better, battery life is poor, touch response isn't good enough, keyboard isn't great, numerous bugs and freezes
