Sony Xperia Z1S review

 

At least in the US, Sony has yet to create a blockbuster smartphone on par with the Samsung Galaxy S4 or Google Nexus 5 . With the Xperia Z1S, its latest flagship handset, the company makes a brave attempt at a smoother sail in American waters, but a...

The Sony Xperia Z1S has a striking, waterproof design, a fast processor, and a feature-packed camera that takes quality pictures.

The Xperia Z1S' screen pales in comparison with other flagship smartphones' displays. The handset’s glass chassis feels slippery and collects prints and smudges easily.

The Xperia Z1S is the most impressive smartphone Sony has ever sold on any carrier, but an inferior screen makes Samsung's Galaxy handsets better deals.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 for AT&T review

 

We've already published a pretty exhaustive review of Sony Ericsson's Xperia X10 some five months ago, but it's taken until this month for it to reach

Large display ; Good camera ; Comfortable to hold

Runs Android 1.6, no upgrade for a while ; Custom UI still lags, no multitouch ; Too pricey given competition

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

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

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

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (AT&T)

 

Excellent camera ; Attractive design

Slow performance ; No multitouch

The Xperia X10 impresses with a slick design and a great camera, but its lack of multitouch and its adoption of an outdated version of the Android OS prevent it from challenging other high-end Android phones for best in show.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (AT&T) review

 

Editors' note: Portions of this review were taken from our review of the unlocked Xperia X10. We adjusted the score of this review on August 18, 2010, to reflect additional testing.

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 and data quality are satisfactory.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 runs Android OS 1.6. The Timescape application has its faults, and you must use a third-party app for Outlook calendar syncing.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 offers a slick, user-friendly design with a solid feature set and good call quality. We lament, however, that the device is stuck on Android 1.6.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Review

 

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...

Large 4-inch display, Sharp 8.1-MP camera, Fun Timescape app aggregates social updates, Mediascape app organizes music, photos, and videos

Lacks multitouch, Noticeable lag, Outdated Android 1.6 OS, No HD video capture

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (AT&T)

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 smartphone offers top-notch hardware at a great price, but slow and clumsy software sours the deal.

Great camera for the price. Excellent video playback. Good battery life.

Slow. Old version of Android. Clumsy Exchange and social-networking integration. Bloatware.

Conclusions A 1 GHz-class phone shouldn't feel slow. It's that simple. But Timescape makes Motorola's much-derided MotoBlur look feather-light. Timescape drags down the phone's performance in service of some ugly icons and jittery animations. And stuck...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (Unlocked)

 

The Sony Xperia X10 is an ideal multimedia and messaging smartphone for anyone who doesn't plan on making many actual voice calls.

Fast CPU. Gorgeous video playback. Sharp camera. Interesting Timescape interface combines contacts and social networking.

Middling sound quality in voice calls. Short battery life. Uneven Timescape performance. microSD card slot hidden behind battery.

The Sony Xperia X10 is a powerful high-end multimedia smartphone, but it's not a very good phone and it should feel faster.

Gorgeous 4-inch display ; Excellent 8-megapixel camera

No multitouch support ; Android 1.6 is outdated
