Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
Advantages: 'Cool factor', Camera, E-mail, Fast processor
Disadvantages: Battery life,
Okay so after much umming and ahhing (much to the annoyance of the sales assistant), I finally decided to go for the brand new SE Experia X10 on Vodafone - £35p/m for 500 minutes and unlimited texts.
In truth my requirements were pretty basic: e-mail on the go; internet access, and a decent camera. This phone definitely delivers. The X10 is absolutely overflowing with features and works a charm.
Straight out of the box the phone is easy-to-use and makes use of its massive 4" display, on which the clarity is unbelievable. One of the main marketing points of this phone is 'Timescape', which collates all of a user's tweets, status updates, texts and e-mails from any given contact in one place. Now ordinarily a phone for me is mainly for business meaning that this wouldn't particularly interest me, but this feature is fantastic, and allows you to keep on top of everything at a quick glance.
Obviously many of the features are generic and to be expected on a modern smartphone, but even these seem to be delivered more crisply than I have seen on the HTC Desire and i-phone 3GS.
In brief, I find this phone a joy to use, so much so that I felt compelled to review a product for the first time! However, like I say I generally use it for basic tasks and put emphasis on the 'cool factor', and would advise further reading if you want a more technical overview (one time I did try to run multiple tasks and the operating system seemed to struggle, with the phone working much slower than usual)
Main +'s: big & detailed display, high resolution camera, look & design, memory, e-mail easy to sync wit PC
Main -'s: battery life = 2days max, sms keypad seems small until you get used to it, apps seem quite expensive
Summary: Suits my usage perfectly
