Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 review: Another one in

 

It was back in February 2008 that the XPERIA lineup was born and it took Sony Ericsson almost two years to bring about the XPERIA X1 successor. The long waiting is over now and the XPERIA X2 is keen to prove to us all it was...

Quad-band GSM support ; Tri-band 3G with HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps ; Four-row slide-and-tilt QWERTY keyboard ; Landscape and portrait virtual QWERTY keyboards ; Handwriting recognition ; 3.2" 65K-color TFT LCD resistive touchscreen (480 x 800...

Outdated hardware ; Sluggish interface ; Display still on the small side, inadequate touch sensitivity and sunlight legibility ; Almost no screen auto-rotation throughout the UI ; Disappointing video recording ; Basic music player ; No FM radio (should...

Both devices obviously have lots of features in common (it's the same amount of memory - both RAM and ROM, and the same CPU) but there are - possibly - enough improvements to make the XPERIA X2 a strong successor and a valuable upgrade. And by telling...

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 Preview

 

It took the manufacturer less than a year since the release of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 to announce its successor, the XPERIA X2. It´s the first Windows phone of the company, meaning it runs Windows Mobile 6.5. The panel interface we know from the...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 Review

 

The X2a will feature 850 MHz 3G, fully suited for AT&T, Rogers, and most other North American carriers. However, you'll also pay a few hundred bucks more for the privilege. Since this is the only difference between the X2i? and the X2a, I'll be...

Razor's edge hardware ; Great ergonomics

Like many high-end phone cameras now, this one has auto-focus, making it practically a "real" digital camera. Of course, the quality is a little less than what you'd get from of a dedicated camera, and the "flash" (a small LED) is so weak that it's a...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 First Look Review

 

The X2 isn't quite so gobsmackingly spendy as it's predecessor, partly because the specs aren't as out of this world as they were when the X1 was released -- and they haven't been altered much except for the camera

Secondly, the pre-loaded software itself is a bit of a mess. Microsoft made some bad decisions with Windows Mobile 6.5, most notably using a non-intuitive honeycomb grid for the application launcher. And the extra stuff Sony Ericsson bundled into the...

ZoneOut: Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 Preview

 

The Xperia X2 is the successor to the highly publicized X1, Sony Ericsson's first Windows Mobile QWERTY handset ever. Has it improved for the better? Only one way to find out!

Expert review by:

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2

 

The original X1 was a class-leading device when it was first announced, but it took so long to come to market that other competitors caught up. With the XPERIA X2, Sony Ericsson say that it should be available during early Q4 - so the X2 could be just...
