The Xperia X10 by Sony Ericsson was the company’s first Android handset. The Xperia x10 is packed with many high-end features including: 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4-inch display, 8-megapixel camera, in addition to all the connectivity one would expect in a smartphone.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has a large 4-inch screen, making it easy to view and watch content. There seems to be a continued trend towards the huge screens. If the X10 is too big for you, there is a smaller form factor available in the Sony X10 Mini.
But the big selling point of the Xperia x10 is the big, bold screen. It is not as big as the EVO 4G display, but it does provide ample space.
Xperia x10 also comes with a 8-megapixel camera. The camera is very good at capturing shots in nearly any light level. It is not quite DSLR quality, but there are many other sub-par camera versions out there today.
Sony Ericsson had the goal to make their software be a key feature, but sadly it falls short of expectations.The company did put a lot of hard work into their customized UI (User Interface), but the x10 is basically is running atop the Android 1.6.
– Stylish overall design with a nice looks and feel.
– Solid battery life for a smartphone with a large screen size.
– Jam packed with many high-end features such as the 8-megapixel camera.
– Custom UI is quite visually appealing. The camera and other multimedia are top notch as well.
– Only running Android 1.6, which is not too impressive.
– Not a fan of needing to remove the battery to swap out the microSD card.
– Expensive price compared to the competition.
– Custom UI software causes device to be very sluggish.
