Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Review
28 November 2010
Summary: Overall then the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10i is a flawed gem. There’s potential for some bits (such as HD movies and the Android OS version used) that can all be sorted by updates to the software. The oddities involving the changes to screen touch sensitivity are frustrating and the power usage means a power socket needs to be to hand every day.
Pros: Camera, large screen
Cons: Poor battery life, Mediascape and Timescape, Keyboard takes some getting used to, Freezes occasionally, slow touchscreen response.
Summary: The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 offers a slick, user-friendly design with a solid feature set and good call quality. Data performance was uneven, however, and the Timescape application and keyboard miss some details.
Pros: The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has a user-friendly design with a brilliant display. The feature set is generous, the internal performance is fast, and call quality is satisfactory.
Cons: The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10's data performance was spotty. The Timescape application has its faults, you must use a third-party app for Outlook calendar syncing, and the landscape keyboard doesn't work in the messaging app.
Excerpt: With the kinks ironed out of early versions of its latest smartphone and custom Android skin, Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X10 finally reveals itself to be a contender in the blood-soaked gladiator floor of the smartphone world. And this model should have substantial appeal for a younger, socially focused demographic. Primary among those fixes are massive improvements in performance and battery life that turn the X10 from a clunky brick into a surprisingly capable handset.
Conclusion: We can't give a final star rating to these two charming baby Android phones since Sony Ericsson wasn't able to provide us with ballpark pricing. Our guess is that they'll sell for $300 to $350 without a contract, and if that's the case, we give them a thumbs-up if you're looking for an incredibly pocketable Android smartphone.
Conclusion: In terms of hardware, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is nothing short of a marvellous device. It´s as easy to notice as taking a look at its specifications and the impression is confirmed when you get it in your hand. The build quality is very good, the screen is huge and features wonderful sensitivity, you get virtually all extra features you might need, including 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS (even navigational software).
Pros: 4-inch display, High build quality, Very good 8-megapixel camera, High in-call quality, Excellent headset and audio playback quality, Multifunctional applications – Timescape and Mediascape
Cons: Lagging software, Android 1.6, Very weak camera flash (practically useless), Integration of social services that is not good enough, Interface elements that need finishing touches, Lack of DivX and Xvid support
