This is a C&J version apparently (customer & journalist), which is as final as it gets until a proper retail boxed version arrives (soon)...

Saw Youtube video done by Xperiencers who also had the C&J version. Seemed reasonably snappy so I have no worries about it if it indeed has 'only' 256 MB RAM. Actually there is speculation that it does have 384MB but 128MB is reserved for the graphics chip (ATi) - which would be pretty awesome.

Is there going to be a mini video review?

Well first a physical side by side comparison with the Omnia (and Touch Pro etc.) (yup that screen issue with me - lol!)
And something different I guess i.e. some third party apps installed on the phone - do they have any issues with screen stc. and how well do they run. And of course video playback :lol: Oh and the web browser, how responsive etc....

Having played with my bro-in-laws Diamond (having reflashed etc. to make it usable for him!) I don't think I can go back to a 'low-res' screen - the screen on the Diamond is just brilliant and by all accounts so is the X1...

This device looks awesome,

Few inquiries though,

1. How is the battery life?
2. Is there like some sort of a touch flow? Is it smooth?
3. How is the camera quality?
4. How is the sound quality? Is it clear and loud?


Thanks

Hi Paul,

I've been a long time MoDaCo user since the days of my ol' MPx200. Learned so much about that phone on these forums. Anyways, I post today in regards to the Xperia X1 and us North American users trying to get the X1i (EU version) and use it here before the X1a's release (we would also not be affected by the CPU change from 7200A to 7201A - a.k.a. the crippled QVGA video recording due to the Broadcom suit).

Anyways, the main thing I am trying to get is a confirmation (screenshots, or in your video review would be GREAT!) of the final UMTS/3G bands on your X1i. As I understand it, the X1i was not supposed to have support for the 850mhz 3G band, and a lot of AT&T users would require this to get 3G. I'm actually on the Rogers/Fido network here in Canada which apparently supports the 850 and 1900mhz bands, but soon might be cut down to only 850mhz. This is why it is crucial that I discover which UMTS bands the X1i supports. I believe UMTS 850mhz is also known as UMTS band V (5).

If you could, please confirm via screenies or video, the CPU (from the About screen), the Model No. (from the Device Information screen), and the Band selections (from the Settings/Phone/Band (tab) screen).

I have been seriously dying for this phone since February, and living in Canada makes it a bit tougher to get these phones ahead of time, and assure that they will fully work on our networks here.

My infinite thanks if you can toss this in your review!

- George

Will the Xperia X1 work on T-Mobile's USA 3g 1700/2100 MHz UMTS network?

Has anybody tested the SlingBox with the Xperia X1?

1. Too early to say, will report on this as time passes.
2. Do you mean the kinetic scrolling? If so, yes, it's smooth!
3. Seems OK, will take some sample shots today!
4. Yes.

Paul i know there's no accelerometer to swap the screen orientation is there a hardware button to swap the orientation on this model like there was on the older prototypes?

Can you show/tell (Maybe in a video) how the SPB MS2 panel works on this device.
I use MS2 on my current device and think it's the best shell for windows mobile.
Thanks!
