Interface and Functionality
The screen of Sony Ericsson x10 White has been designed quite well with Scratch-resistant surface by the manufacture. Proven to be, with the display of TFT capacitive touchscreen in 65K colors, the interface of this phone looks really stunning, considering that this phone is labeled as high end smart phone, which is really expensive around the market to date.
Anyway, the screen size of Sony Ericsson x10 White also becomes the main point that makes this phone stand out amongst its competitors. The 4.0 inches screen appears really wide around the front body, which is great. Moreover, with the help of 480 x 854 pixels screen resolution, every thing that you see on the screen looks really accurate and detailed. The interface of this phone has also been equipped with, Proximity sensor for auto turn-off, Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate and Timescape/Mediascape UI.
Timescape and Mediascape UI
Sony Ericsson x10 White comes with personalization interface called UX, which allows you to link to your phone book entries with the corresponding Facebook profile. With this feature, you can see status and picture updates, your inbox message, etc. I'm really sure that many Facebook users will love this feature.
The other feature called TimeScape/MediaScape is one of the best things of this phone interface. For your information, TimeScape holds the most important role to operate the new UX interface. This feature can be utilized as a home screen, which provides you the information about your status updates of your Facebook friends and also the preview of messages that have been sent by your friends. It’s worth mentioning that this program will also allow you to see your Twitter feeds.
On top of the screen, there are also several important navigations of Sony Ericsson x10 White, such as: the music files you’ve been listening before, the email inbox, the SMS inbox, pictures taken, and other stuff, wrapped up in very clean and eye catchy user interface.
The feature called MediaScape is also as significant as TimeScape UI. This feature will allow you to centralize all the media files in your phone, so you will be able to play or run all of your music and videos files, exploring all the pictures inside your photo gallery, your Facebook page, your Picassa and also Flickr accounts.
Sony Ericsson x10 White also has been equipped with many quick access applications and SNS integration (Social network service), such as: Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk, Facebook and Twitter integration, providing easy navigation to users without entering to the internet browser.
Multimedia and Entertainment
Listening to music or watching videos should be convenient with this phone, because the media player already supports MP4/H.263/H.264/WMV video formats and MP3/eAAC+/WMA/WAV music formats. Moreover, the standard earphone port, 3.5mm headphone jack has been equipped on top of device, along with the microUSB port.
Considering that the Android version Donut is already left behind (Android currently has reached on the 7th version), so you might want to update the firmware into the newer one, with the Android 2.1 Eclair update.
But sticking to the standard version should be fine, but only if you don’t really have much interest with the newest games or applications, which require the latest firmware. Besides, in order to enjoy the autofocus in video recording, Android 2.1 Eclair update needs to be done on this phone.
With the support of CPU 1 GHz Scorpion processor (Adreno 200 GPU, Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chipset), running games and applications should also be really smooth and fluid with this phone, while Java MIDP emulator will be so handy to run any java based applications (with touch screen support).
We are sure that the internal memory capacity of 1 GB is big enough to insert some media files inside this device. Moreover, the 8GB external memory is also included if you want more extra space, while on the upgrade, the external memory of 32GB is available at the phone shops.
Based on this Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 White review, one of the strongest parts that you will get from Sony Ericsson x10 White definitely is the 8MP camera. With the help of autofocus and LED flash, snapping photos can be pleasing with this phone. Moreover, this phone is also injected with photo light, which will help users to capture photos in the dark environment.
The camera interface of this phone has also become the positive point from this phone. This camera interface will give various of options to help users when taking the better photos in any kind of situations, such as: light balance, some of focusing modes, and image stabilization.
Sold in 2 different case covers (Sensous Black and Luster White), the battery life of Sony Ericsson x10 White is believed can survive for more than 415 hours in stand-by mode and 10 hours in talk time.
Bottom line, I have always been impressed with Sony Ericsson’s strategy to approach the touch screen smart phone markets with its Xperia series. And apparently, Sony Ericsson x10 White will be one of Sony Ericsson army that for sure has much to say around this market.
This phone has really given me nothing but great and positive impressions so far.
This phone will definitely win over many of its devoted fans that are always eager to see the next creations of this manufacture.
