SE-NSE Reviews the XPERIA X1

SE-NSE is the latest site to put up a review of Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X1. Here are some bits from the review:

There are currently no Sony Ericsson phones that should be compared to the X1. Nor are there any that can match the X1 in terms of features and functionality. If we were to take a comparing look at the global market of smart phones, we’d find a tiny selection of smart phones that are similar to the X1, but not a single of these is a match for the X1. More on this later in the review.

I mentioned holding the handset so let’s go back to that for a moment. There are two small annoyances that I must mention first. One is that the screen section has a slight wiggle when extended, but only when you press the screen. This isn’t a major problem and to be honest I was half expecting it, but it does detract from the premium nature of what is otherwise a very well put together piece of technology. The other is that the keys underneath the screen click a little too loudly. Now this last point is arguably one of personal taste and some may disagree with me on this particular point, but for me the click was just that little bit too much. Those minor issues aside the X1 feels like a bespoke product not a mass produced handset.

Ok folks, time to add a new feature to the site. As more and more members are getting their hands on the XPERIA X1, the usual question among the first time and veteran Windows Mobile users is, where to get XPERIA software or apps that are optimized to the XPERIA’s 800×480 (WVGA) screen.

The only way it will become useful however is for you, the members, point to apps, panels, themes, that you find interesting, useful, and can’t live without.
