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: 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. However, this device lacks multitouch, runs a bit slow, and uses an outdated version of Android.
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. Our review unit had stronger cell reception than the Nexus One and similar reception as the 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 quality for multimedia and capable video playback.
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.

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. The positive signs are let down by some issues, such as an old version of Android and oddities to Gmail's abilities with some hardware foibles.
Pros: Large screen, fast processor
Cons: No multi touch, no offline charging possible, Old version of Android used, Gmail inconsistencies and problems
Excerpt: The Xperia X10 is Sony Ericsson's first Android handset, and it's got all the features you'd expect from a potential iPhone rival: a 4in, 480x854 resolution screen, an 8.1-megapixel camera with an LED flash, auto-focus and facial recognition, and a customised interface with social aggregation software. As you'd expect from Sony Ericsson, the design certainly aims to look upmarket, with an edge-to-edge screen and a glossy chrome strip around the edge.
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. Sloppy little things, like not being able to enter contact details when composing a message in landscape format (because it won't access the address book), just shouldn't happen.
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
Summary: Le Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini fait partie de la nouvelle gamme Sony Ericsson. Cette nouvelle gamme est caractérisée par la présence de terminaux Android, un beau changement pour le constructeur !
Summary: Le Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 HD avait été « révélé » il y a peu. Il s’agit d’un Xperia X10 sous Android 2.1, avec quelques améliorations au niveau du système. En gros, le X10 HD est annoncé comme étant moins gourmand (30% d’autonomie en plus par rapport au X10) et arbore la surcouche Sony Ericsson dans sa dernière version, avec quelques modifications au niveau de l’interface dont dans le répertoire.
