Horrible Battery

 

I'm a pretty heavy phone user, and I expect my phones to be able to handle what I give them. I just recently purchased this phone, and after upgrading to android 2.3 it shuts itself off and restarts continuously anytime it gets charged or has been charged. Its one of the most irritating things I've ever come across in any piece of technology I've ever had.....seriously

Don't ever buy sony ericsson xperia x10 minipro

 

I got this phone for texting, backing up texts and contacts to PC, email, web and camera. There's not one thing this phone does as it should, except take basic photos and bluetooth. Battery runs out in 2 days on standby with everything shut down. Can't transfer text messages to PC. Touch screen is inaccurate and unpredictable- sometimes you have to bang repeatedly, sometimes accidental touch will detroy what you've been banging away at. Answer and hang up keys on touch screen which you have to unlock first to answer a call. Text messaging is a nightmare. Multiple recipients have to be loaded one at a time, banging your way back to the start of the address list each time. Phone then turns a simple text to multiple recipients into a picture message which ISPs won't send (the helpline operator helpfully told me this, and told me to send 3 at a time. Then it still sent my simple text as a picture and used up my credit instead of my free texts. After 2 days I gave up and sent them on my old Nokia in 15 mins.) Never figured out how to get email set up. It couldn't find woosh. No way to transfer contacts to PC without laborious syncing which would download all my PC contacts to the phone. I did not want that so unable to back up contacts. I wanted separate contacts folder for phone. Sony web site is jammed with people screaming about these phones. They have done nothing about it. My advice: avoid Sony Ericsson at all costs.

Charging issues

 

3 times I've had to send this phone back to be fixed as the charging jack is badly designed. It's so frustrating as otherwise is a very good phone but having to send it to repair on a design fault that is common with SE phones is just not worth it. Wish I'd bought something else.

Laggy and lack of memory phone

 

Touch responsiveness not good, recent gingerbread is better but still not up to quality as this phone lack of ram and can't do well in gaming, flash and those consume high memory task. Touch responsiveness sometimes miss a swipe action especially multi touch. Calling maybe sometimes laggy when the proximity sensor slow to response and can't end the call well with the touch response slow out of the slow canceling of proximity sensor. Slow in opening app. Music player is better with less lag in gingerbread.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro Android Mobile

 

Just about a month ago, we took a look at the Sony Xperia X10 Mini. Although the phone boasted of some really nifty features, that too for a smartphone of its size, it did fall short of a few expectations. The Xperia X10 mini pro, which was only...

We feel that this phone is a great buy and has a definite 1 UP over the X10 Mini simply thanks to a more convenient QWERTY Keypad. In addition to this the great battery life makes this phone a winner with us. Sony has done a great job with integrating...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini

 

As far as fun phones go, with the Xperia X10 Mini there's never a dull moment. It's petite and ready to party. Take a closer look. Form Factor Here's what I liked - it's small and easy to operate with just one, hand and comfortable to hold thanks to...

The price tag on the X10 Mini is Rs. 16475, which may seem a little steep, but for all this handset has to offer, it really isn't. If you’re looking for a handset that does everything, is easy to use and is as cute as button, you can’t go wrong with...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

 

These days it's not merely how speedy a mobile's OS is or how well the handset is designed that could make or break its sale. The user interface plays a very very significant role in determining just how good a mobile handset really is for the money...

The X10 comes with price tag of Rs. 35,795 (MRP), which is a little over priced in my opinion. With handsets like the Legend and the MILESTONE priced so much less than the X10, it’s going to have a really tough time gaining a foothold. While it does...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 (Android 2.1) review: Eclairs for dinner

 

With a large high-res screen, a Snapdragon CPU and ample amount of RAM the XPERIA X10 is nothing short of the top-end Android smartphones currently on the market. However its outdated Android OS...

So where does the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 stand after the update? It didn’t quite manage to take over at the top of the smartphone food chain, but to be honest we never actually expected it to. One year is a really long time in this business and...

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 AT&T's network and retail chain. A lot's changed in the mobile phone market since then -- the iPhone...

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)

 

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

 

This Android phone puts a fun spin on the OS and sports a good camera, but there are better alternatives.

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...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro (pink)

 

If you love the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, but can't find room for it in your pocket, Sony Ericsson has options for you. Back in February at the 2010 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, the company introduced two handsets that cram the Android...

The Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro offers a lot of features for its size. It has an attractive user interface and a comfortable keyboard

The Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro lacks camera-editing options, and its small size can hamper usability. It's stuck on Android 1.6, and its volume level is rather low

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro is still too small for a full-fledged Android smartphone, but the added physical keyboard greatly improves usability.
