Sony Ericsson X10 Review
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is a classy looking Android phone, featuring a huge, 4-inch screen, and an attractive, glossy finish. The screen takes up most of the front of this phone, but there are three navigation buttons beneath the display.
One of the nice features that you get with the Sony Ericsson X10 is TimeScape; this is a system that makes it easy to access some of the features that you use the most, such as your contacts, Facebook updates, and music. You will also get three home screens that you can customize with drag and drop icons.
The call quality of the Xperia X10 isn’t quite up to standards. Though reception is fairly good, the volume on calls is low making it difficult to hear the caller, especially if you have a lot of background noise. On the other hand, the messaging capabilities of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 or fantastic; you get support for email, including web based email accounts, plus there is text and multimedia media messaging. This handset also comes with instant messaging through Google Talk.
One of the biggest problems that you will find with the Sony Ericsson X10 is that the onscreen keyboard can be difficult to use. Although the keyboard works better in landscape mode than portrait, it tends to be inaccurate and misses keys.
Though the keyboard can be a problem, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is still a nice mobile. Some additional features that come with this handset include a web browser for surfing the Internet; when browsing the web, pages load fast and look great on the large screen.
For taking pictures while on the go, the Sony Ericsson X10 features an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and auto focus. The camera also doubles and a camcorder so you can record video as well as take photos; picture quality better than what you might expect for a camera phone.
The media player that you get with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is fantastic; the music player provides great sound and watching video on such a large screen is also nice. With this phone you can watch video and listen to your favorite music wherever you go.
Some additional features that come with the Xperia X10 include a GPS with Google Maps, plus you get WiFi, and Bluetooth. You will also get a personal organizer that includes all of the basic features, such as a calendar, calculator, etc.
Like most smartphones today, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will eat up the battery; with this phone you can expect to recharge at least once a day. Call quality and reception is fairly good, and though you might experience some lag when using multiple applications, in most cases the Xperia X10 is fast.
If you can overlook the problem with the virtual keyboard, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is really a nice Android phone.
