    Good phone to have, January 31, 2011
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    1. The real phone model is x10i (which I guess “i” stand for “international” version)
    2. After received, I install Sony Erricson PC Companion Software which will allow me to upgrade to Android 2.1 update 1
    3. Phone look nice, compact (compare to other phone same class); however the back cover made of plastic, which makes it look cheap!!!.
    4. Screen protector also included (even x10i screen is anti-scratch)
    5. Phone works as I expected, pretty big screen, vivid color. 8.1M camera with smile detection, and other features seem nice to have.
    6. Take me a while to familiar with phone behavior, but once I get used to it, I like it.
    7. Virtual keyboard is nice in landscape mode, but difficult to use in portrait mode.
    8. If turn on WiFi, battery will be drained for a day, (but the same for Droid 2, Droid X). Turn off Wifi, it may last for 2 days. Set screen brightness to lowest level may extent more, and you can adjust its brightness by using widgets short cut.
    9. So far, I will happy with this phone!
    10. Without warranty, it might be potential problem!!!

    Update on 06/16/11:
    – Phone is still working :).
    – Another firmware update couple months ago which allow to do “multitouch” feature on X10i now. I think it is a big reason many guys don’t want to buy X10 before.
    – Camera doesn’t have flash (but a small LED), that will make you disappointed in dark place.

    Execellent phone.., December 16, 2010

    I’ve heard about a lot of problem, but new firmware updated fixed them all.

    – Battery problem with OS 1.6 –> Please update to the latest firmware, everything will be fixed. Additional option: go to Ebay and buy couple more batteries for back-up which costs me $10 (which can’t be done with Iphone)

    – My suggestion, go with OS 2.1, all inconveniences have been fixed, additional great features have been added, phone runs faster.

    Pros:

    – Large & beautiful big screen.
    – Fast processor, great speaker.
    – Very good camera & HD movie recorder.
    – Sensitive touch screen.
    – 3D games are awesome

    Cons:

    – In-call volume is a little bit low
    – I am having about 5% call dropped

    Too many problems, February 12, 2011

    I would not recommend this phone. Initially I started out a bit happy, until I noticed the horrible battery life. I was averaging about 8 hours of low usage, which meant the phone would be dead before I got home at night. The 2.1 update (that took an extremely long time) made this somewhat better, but Sony has shown that they are terrible at rolling out updates at a reasonable pace.

    That actual deal breaker is a problem with the USB connection. Forums online have shown that it fails after 4-6 months, and I too have had this problem. While some people are successfully having it covered under the warranty, not all are. And the warranty is only a year long, so there is almost no chance this phone will survive the entire length of a 2 year contract. I’m hoping that SE comes up with a remedy for this fault, but I won’t count on it. Until then, I would highly recommend that others avoid this phone.
