SE Xperia X10

Time to revisit an old friend, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.  It's not often that you'll see us review the same phone twice, but this time we're making an exception.  With the huge U.S. subscriber base of AT&T, there's a good chance at least a few of you will be picking this one up, and some recent firmware changes were made to address some of the issues we saw with the X10 the first time around.  And we love playing with new Android phones, I won't lie to you.

The physical hardware hasn't changed since we looked at the X10 before.  Still the same 1GHz Snapdragon, 4-inch LCD screen, 1 GB ROM/512 MB RAM, and a nice 8.1-megapixel camera with LED flash.  And it stills feels great in your hand -- build quality and materials are always top notch with SE products.  To top it all off, AT&T has included a great set of earbuds and mic, which you can see in the video after the break.

AT&T's Xperia X10 hardware hands-on

Jerry... We need to see the software ... every where says its still laggy... And lets not even talk about it being 1.6 still after being released else where how long now? . . .Sony is slacking big time

I think Sony dropped the ball on this one. Its about 70 bux less than the Captivate but you lose so much. Its only running 1.6 and has very little onboard memory for music & such. Sony always makes a good product material wise so I'm sure the build quality is good but it just seems like it was released a year too late.

1GB of on board memory is enough for all apps you may want to install. For music you have 16GB (somewhere 8GB) microSD card included

If you want sweet hardware and are going to put a custom ROM on it, go for it. Otherwise, stay away. I had hands on time with this a few weeks ago and it was a dog. Shame too, as it is a nice looking phone.

Seriously! Especially shitty phones like this where the biggest selling point are the ear buds that come included.

Not sure why anyone would buy this with the current offering of phones out there.
To each their own, or whatever. But still.

I LOVE the x10, and I have had this phone for several weeks.
I also have a Huawei U8110 running Android 2.1

OK why do I love my X10?
The sound quality is great.
The camera is great, really crisp pictures/video and that is important to me. People says it's lagging, well that is not my experience.

If I compare it with my Huawei (low budget).
Huawei runs Android 2.1 but the sound quality sucks, the camera is a joke..

The only thing that I don't like about the X10 is the way it handles photo file-names. If I remove all photos from my phone, the phone will start counting from 1 again. That means I end up with multiple photos with the same filename, I don't like that and SE said it was "not a bug".
