Sony Xperia X10, another failure

A week ago I have changed my price plan with rogers and was eligible for a hardware upgrade. Due to the high demand of Iphone 4, I couldn't get an Iphone. However, I have had the chance to get a new Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 or a new Blackberry 9700 for 99.99 dollars plus 35 activation fee.
I was trying out the Xperia X10 for quite a bit. I can say it is not what you expect from a smartphone. I have had an IPhone 3G for almost a year and now I am using a Nokia 5800.

The first problem with Xperia X10 was its battery life. It can give you the expected battery life if you don't install any application or use any special feature of the phone like new applications or even its own Timescape.

The screen is big, but I don't think the problem is with the screen, cause IPhone has the same size screen as well. After installing some application, don't ASTONISH if you see your battery goes from 100 percent to 0 in 6 hours. Then you realize that you need some application to limit the capability of your phone by disabling the data connection, GPS connection and other background application while in standby. Even using this preferences won't help the battery life for a long time. You only can barely survive a day if you see some videos on youtube, checking your email often throughout the day, do some texting and making some calls.

The only good thing about the X10 is its 8.1 megapixel camera. It is something to be loved and take some cool pictures. However, the flash on the camera is not that good. The flash on my own nokia 5800 is much much better than X10. Although the android market can not be compared with the OVI market by Nokia, but I can find the applications I need in OVI. There is an application for forsquares called waze, skype and many more. Forgot to mention that there is no skype for XPeria X10. It is a big disadvantage.

The interface is not even friendly at all. There is no foldering in the Xperia X10 and you can barely add all your applications in the main homepage. If you even want to install AWD.Laucher, a very nice home application for android phone, you will be in trouble receiving calls. Since there is a special interface in X10 receiving calls and general home application like the above are not supporting that. It is not really rational and even cool for a phone to install an application and then not be able to answer a phone call, the basic functionality of a phone.

  5. There are definitely plenty of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a great point to bring up. I offer the ideas above as common inspiration but clearly there are questions just like the one you convey up where an important factor will probably be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round issues like that, but I am positive that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Each girls and boys feel the affect of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
