Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Review
14 October 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.
Sony's Newest Android Phone Is a High Dose of Can-Do
26 August 2010
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.
Pros: Nice camera, even including face recognition and a variety of camera modes. Impressive audio quality and loudness, if you’re one of those people that still talks on his phone.
Cons: Troubling data entry problems. Sony skin can get overwhelmed for heavy Facebookers and Twitter friends. Ancient Android version (1.6) installed. Still suffers from a few performance stutters here and there.
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
Excerpt: The looks like a high-end device, but the plastic body makes it feel less expensive than it is. The Xperia X10 is a complicated device but easy to use thanks to simple menus and a home screen key to take you back to the beginning at any point.
Conclusion: Apart from imaging, music and video features also make a mobile phone impressive. There are numerous users that buy mobile phones to listen high quality music or enjoy high resolution videos. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 comes with a music player that can play music files of different formats such as MP3/ e-AAC+/ WMA/ RA. The video player is capable of playing MP4/ H.263/ H.264/ WMV file formats.
Excerpt: If you've watched any of the football from the FIFA World Cup 2010 - and we're hesitant to say football - you will have probably seen the advertising for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini. The Xperia X10 mini (E10i) is an unusual device. It is the smallest Android handset we've seen and we can't imagine that you'll see a touchscreen phone much smaller without making serious compromises when it comes to usability and features.
Pros: Compact, affordable, hardware spec, custom UI makes it usable
Cons: Doesn't really excel in any area, apart from size, appeal might be limited by the lack of space for browsing, media and keyboard use, Timescape a little limited in scope
