The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has a large 4-inch screen and an 8-megapixel camera. The smartphone was released in November 2009. It reached the market in March 2010.
The Xperia X10's 4-inch display is 480 x 854 pixels. Unlike the Google Nexus One, which features an AMOLED retina blot, the Xperia X10 has a simple, old TFT display. But the display is good. The colors are bright and vibrant
Currently, the X10 runs an old Android version (1.6 or Donut). The latest version is expected to be upgraded during the year.
Sony Ericsson smartphones always had good cameras. The X10 is no different. Its 8 megapixel snapper delivers superb image quality. Smile recognition works well, but face recognition is far more absurd than belief. No Xenon Flash and Android 1.6 Limitations LED Light Does Not Work Proper Flash
The Xperia X10 is the same 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor like Google Nexus One. But since Android 1.6 does not support hardware acceleration, it does not feel too graceful.
User Interface and Browser
The Xperia X10 delivers a whole new user experience thanks to the Timescape and Mediascape interfaces. Timescape is a killer feature. This is basically an animated pile of 3D tiles. Each tile displays a particular event in your life, such as a Facebook update, a beep, an email, or a photo. These tiles are in order. Timescape allows you to have your social life in one place, but sometimes it is slow.
Mediascape is the X10 media player. According to Android standards, this is a very good application. Mediascape lets you quickly access music, movies, and photos stored on your phone or on the Internet. Currently PlayNow is the only online music service supported by Mediascape. But more plugins should arrive soon.
The Xperia X10 supports a wide range of connectivity options including four-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE, Wi-Fi b / g and Bluetooth 2.1, A2DP and file transfers. There is a microUSB port for connecting your phone to your computer. There is also a microSD memory card slot, but it is not hot swappable because the battery needs to be added to the slot.
Other useful features include built-in A-GPS and Google Maps for local search. Your smartphone also has the Wisepilot trial version before satellite navigation.
The Xperia X10 has the right hardware, but runs a slightly out-dated operating system. Upgrading the latest version of Android gives your phone a better chance of playing against the Nexus One and HTC Legend.
