Sony Ericsson X8 review: XPERIA in the middle

 

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 is likely to outsell the rest of the XPERIA droids. It's neither the best phone in the line-up, nor it's a phone to excite and inspire but it's the common denominator. It is right in the middle. It's an XPERIA for everyone –...

Quad-band GSM/EDGE, HSDPA 900/2100 / HSDPA 850/1900/2100 ; 3.0" capacitive TFT touchscreen of HVGA resolution, 16M colors ; Scratch-resistant screen coating ; Android OS v1.6 Donut with custom Sony Ericsson UI, featuring Timescape ; Qualcomm MSM7227...

Limited storage for installing third-party apps ; Outdated Android OS version ; No multi-touch support ; Camera lacks autofocus ; No DivX video support out of the box ; microSD slot under the battery cover ; No secondary video-call camera

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 preview: First look

 

Sony Ericsson don't believe in the one-size-fits-all concept. Their XPERIA lineup stretches from XS to XL. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 fits right in the middle. A grown X10 mini or a smaller X10, the X8 will do well either way...

Compared to the X10 mini, the camera on the X8 has been downgraded to 3MP fixed-focus, but the screen has grown to a healthy 3 inches and the resolution has doubled –improving both the image quality and giving the custom Android UI more room to work with

The latest addition to the Xperia lineup is a budget-cautious Android handset, which comes in a stylish outfit - the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8. From first sight, the X8 looks like a pretty decent lightweight smartphone; it has good looks, a passable...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 Preview

 

For good or bad, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 is more similar to the X10 mini, than the X10, which is mainly because of the fact that it utilizes the X10 mini's user interface. On the hardware side however, it does a decent job at differentiating and...

First Looks: Sony Ericsson Xperia X8

 

Sony Ericsson seems to be seeking the middle ground with its new Xperia X8 - the device is essentially a miniature version of its flagship X10 and shares similarities with the X10 mini series. How will the device fit in? Hit the jump to find out more.

The X8 is much closer in specs to its X10 mini cousins than the flagship X10. With that said, it is so similar that there’s nothing much to set itself apart from them, aside from a larger screen and an inferior camera. The main problem with the X8 is...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 Review

 

Rs. 15,990 gets you a pretty good phone in the X8. Unfortunately, there are contenders out there that present a stronger case for your cash, a case the X8, try as it might, cannot ward off. Allow us to reiterate. The XPERIA X8 is quite nice, but there...

Well built, decent value and feature set, Lots of applications available

Better phones available for the price, Camera lacks a flash and autofocus, On-screen QWERTY is cramped
