Excerpt: I guess X8 is pretty good now with the rom i used. Stock rom not interesting at all. By the way, it still the best for me cause this is my first android phone I have. I had many experience with this phone and I discover all its function. From the others user of this phone, most of them is not satisfied because of several lacking of this phone. Everyone want multitouch or dual touch on x8 phone, also pinch zoom on camera mode.
Excerpt: "...can be said about the Sony Xperia X8. Also with the screen size not being big, I can say that if you have fat fingers, then forget even considering purchasing this phone, luckily for me I don't, and hence why I have kept using this. Lets not forget however that this is an Android smartphone, which means that I have access to a huge amount of applications, as well as Wifi, GPS and a number of other groovy features. However saying this in terms of ...
Excerpt: "...always been a fan of Sony Ericsson phones, so when time came to upgrade last year it was only natural for me to choose another Sony Ericsson. What I really wanted was a Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro, what I ended up with was the X8 as I was informed that 3, my contract provider no longer did these handsets for contract phones. So off I pottered full of disappointment clutching my new Sony Ericsson Xperia X8. In a bid to cheer myself up I brought a ...
Pros: User friendly, Clear screen . good sound .
Cons: Rubbish camera, to many pre - loaded apps that cant be deleted .
Summary: I had one of these last year, it was, let's just say, cheap for a reason. It was slow, stuck on an old version of Android, and the Sony Ericsson software just made the experience even worse. Typing on it was difficult due to the small screen and it just wasn't good at much. That said, if you want a basic Android phone it will do alright. I only had one for only a month or so but during that time there were no major faults, it just wasn't enough for me really.
Excerpt: It’s a cheap-looking phone when new, although looks pretty enough from a distance, but I can see it looking pretty shoddy as the months roll on. Maybe this is why Ericsson decided to include three extra replacement backing covers? At this price I would look into a Blackberry Curve or the HTC Wildfire if you needed a smartphone at a low-price with decent clout. No one should have to spend this amount and receive so little back in return.
Pros: The YouTube app Dedicated camera button FM Radio Nippy Wi-Fi connection
Cons: Shoddy manufacture, feels as if it is falling apart! Slow OS Only a handful of decent applications bundled Poor sound Low-res, unresponsive touch screen
